reviews on Amazon in exchange for free/discounted products

Product reviews on Amazon reviews have been very helpful in choosing and researching options for everything from fish oil supplements for dogs to baby swaddles to windshield wiper blades. It's always been fairly easy to tell obviously fake reviews and mentally discount those from the bigger picture, or see the extreme highs and extreme lows offering a certain kind of perspective that may or may not apply to my own decisions. The Vine program was a bit annoying at first, but since the reviewers were generally chosen for writing helpful reports, their reviews were often quite helpful and contained information missing from the product descriptions. But recently it seems like there are SO many reviews by non-Vine folks who include a variation on the line, "I received this product at a discount in exchange for my writing a honest review." It is obvious why the manufacturers or distributors want to get more reviews, but does Amazon condone this kind of review? Why have they suddenly been popping up even more? [more inside]

Where to review a product that's not sold by Amazon, and not Yelp-able?

Several times I've wanted to post a review of a product, to alert people to simple issues that the company isn't addressing, but if it's not something Amazon would list, and Yelp wants to tie it to a specific city, where's the place to post the review?

Looking for the worst of the worst.

I was surprised to discover that there is no way to sort an Amazon search or browse within a category by user review--more specifically from lowest to highest. Is there a workaround for this? Or perhaps an app or script I could use? Or even a third party site that sorts it for you? I'm mostly interested in being able to browse a category and see the lowest ranked items, but I'd settle for ranked search results also.

Where are the user-ranked laptop reviews?

I'm thinking of buying a laptop, and find that at sites like CNET, the editors and users often disagree wildly. I haven't found a place that reviews laptops that can sort reviews by the users' rankings. I tried amazon, but their "sort by average customer review" doesn't work. Which sites do you like?

How to remove inappropriate user reviews from Alexa.com?

How do I remove an inappropriate user review from Alexa.com? For instance, this page: http://www.alexa.com/data/details/main?q=&url=theonion.com Reviews appear to be stored at Amazon.com, but I can find no way to formally request a review be removed (even if it is blatantly obscene).
