Yep, although the rules of BLF are fairly easy to follow, they're even easier to break.

It’s actually quite a tough choice.

It will look draconian if we never retire companies from the list after long period.
Yet, it will look too lenient if we do retire someone from the list after certian periods.

 

Searching for High CRI leds since 2010...

 

Has finally gotten to the bottom after 10 years of delving deep into that rabbit hole of them high CRI lights...

 

High CRI, high quality lights doesn't need to be expensive, or is it?

I’m definitely open to removing companies from this list after they establish a track record of honest business with us. Thus far, I’ve had a grand total of zero requests to do so, which I guess proves the point that companies stoop to this level when they simply don’t care anymore.

Are they even aware of being enlisted?
Some learned to be good members eventually (Vapcell is on my mind) and I would be surprised if they didn’t care.

Vapcell is the only one that seems to have turned things around. I still think they deserve to wait a year to be removed, which hasn’t passed yet.

Wurrkos recently spammed the crap out of people via PM, requesting reviews of a dive light. The terms involved getting refunded after the review was posted. I didn’t do it, though I did see the light in question also show up in the WTS forum shortly after…

It’s that “ after review is posted “ that implies only 5 star need apply.

I constantly receive emails from new unknown flashlights brands to review their products (not specifically in BLF). Weird thing is I’m not even an active reviewer anymore and my last flashlight reviews was very long time ago.

And even weirder is that they have my personal email address from which I have never contacted them before. I assume there is a pretty extensive “reviewers contact list” that’s being passed around between manufacturers. Just imagine the amount of people out there receiving free lights and posting false 5 star reviews everywhere.

I never read 5 star reviews, or the 1 stars either. I go straight to the 4 stars and 3 stars; they seem to have the most honest content.
