Hah, this is fair. But remember, I spend about equal time with amazing flippers and awful ones, where the wrist flick is needed. So, my general strategy probably favors a bit of flick for encouragement. Regression to the mean!
This is a dangerous thing, for sure. 'Influencer' is a term that bothers me (even though I acknowledge that it probably fits me). No one reviewer or social media personality should dictate your desires or tastes, and as always, the very best thing a reviewer can be is one of many datapoints in your analysis leading up to a purchase. Anybody taking me as gospel needs better gospels!
It certainly fits you by now, and while I can see it being kind of nice to be a trendsetter (as it used to be called) on the other hand you're at the same time the lightning rod when it doesn't work out. More eyes on you and the one people look at when you end up recommending something that works for YOU but nobody else. With great power comes great responsibility as they say.
Also for some odd reason I always liked the idea of you collaborating with Regular Car Reviews in the old school style where it's just your voice and his voice. Maybe reviewing your car or even reviewing public transport in San Diego or wherever he currently resides.
