When writing a review, make a list of topics, features and tasks ahead of
time that you want to check and document that. The review should be clear
to explain what the initial goals were.

I have written several reviews. And I have received negative and abusive
feedback also.  There's always someone who can find fault even if you try
to do an honest, thorough and good job.
