I have noticed the creeping trend to be invited to review everything we ever use or visit these days, and tbh it annoys me as I see it as a manifestation of neoliberal/marketising forces in every walk of life. However, I have to go to a funeral this afternoon and have just searched for the crematorium, which is in a different city, in order to be able to locate it.
I am informed that there are 'no reviews yet', and I have been invited to be the first to write a review. Oddly macabre; or inappropriate; or is it just me?
Sorry for your loss.
I agree with your assessment, I can't see any good coming from allowing a crematorium to be reviewed. It provides far too much opportunity for horribly inappropriate remarks to be made.
However, on the general subject of reviews, I find Amazon reviews to be an unending source of amusement.
