Consumerist: Lonely Planet Writer Admits to Fabricating Guide Book Based On Info From Girlfriend

I love the Consumerist blog. Not sure what to think of Lonely Plant after this story about the shenanigans of guide writer Thomas Kohnstamm - "Lonely Planet Writer Admists to Fabricating Guide Book Based On Info From Girlfriend"

Fake reviews are a bother, especially when it's supposedly coming off someone knowledgable, which is why I think it is always a good idea to check other travellers' tips as well. Personally, I use a travel oriented social network called trekcafe - www.trekcafe.com - and it really helped me getting some valuable reviews about spots I wanted to hike around.
Cheers.
