Issue with Reviews

I was thinking about going back to school for possibly vocational education and I wanted to do some research via college times, hoping I can find a college based on the reviews of current students. However, my visit to College Times was not a positive experience and I was appalled with the conduct of the people posting reviews. A majority of the reviews I read on the website sounded like they were written by either upset and/or disturbed students and did not give me an honest idea about the services and the campus life of the schools I have researched. I also had another issue with the negative use of language to describe students, especially the use of stereotypically derogatory language which was directed at female students. I have no problem with freedom of speech; however, I have a problem with people who abuse that right by posting malicious comments. Another problem I had with College Times was the high number of reviews which are not current and might not provide me an honest insight of the potential school I could be attending. There needs to be better moderation of outdated and bogus reviews to provide better input for potential and/or returning students.

I wonder how the pandemic is going to impact the review sites since schools are switching to distance learning. Wouldn't it be fair to start fresh with current reviews?
