Most product reviews on most websites are useful and helpful - although yes you do have to apply an idiot filter. The people who take time to post reviews are doing the rest of us a favour.
If you don't find reviews useful don't read them.

This guy got 5 replies. All stating "it's about the game, has nothing to do with the Kindle".
I really (as so often) don't get it.
How is it Amazon's responsibility, if someone doesn't check a game before handing it to a 5 year old?
And how is a game Amazon's responsibility anyway?
Next time, this 5 year old probably buys an erotic book and again Amazon is to blame?
If it really is the case that you can make an in-App purchase without entering a password then yes that would be a cause for a legitimate complaint. And something other parents would find useful to know.
