What people above have said makes sense... trouble is, I HAVE bought the product, well before trying to review it, AND was logged in on the account used to buy it.

And I have written many complimentary things about their products over the years....

... for instance. One less chore to spend time on, I guess!

It does raise the question, though, of where the "reviews" we DO see come from....

Oh well.

I should clarify that it only lets me review items that I've bought since they've updated their backend to keep track of an account's purchase history.

I don't think there is anything suspicious about the origin of reviews. I'm guessing most people don't realize there is a review tab in addition to comments. I had no idea until you posted this question which made me go look more carefully.
