You speak truth, Mark. I tend to ignore products without reviews, but I also tend to dismiss those with nothing but a couple of 5 star reviews as well. This isn't to say that I won't buy the product, but that the reviews mean nothing. Oddly enough, a single one-star rating will often be enough to make me want to take a look. It's weird, but true.

As for "asking for help," this is one of my greatest weaknesses and something I suck at miserably. I put stuff out there and "hope" that somebody will say something. And hope, as we all know, is just fear in disguise. In short, I am afraid of asking. So, thank you and keep preaching. Maybe someday I, and others like me, will finally get over ourselves and start asking.
