While the experienced users here will all be aware that silicone (and most other softer materials) collect lint... someone coming here for the first time and reading their very first sex toy review probably isn't going to know that. That's why I personally try to remember to include that information in my reviews.
I try to write as though I'm talking to someone who has never had a sex toy before - because that's true of many people who come here. That's the same reason I try to remember to include cleaning suggestions, storage suggestions, lube compatibility, etc. I try to include everything I would have wanted to know the first time I was looking for a toy. (Because that IS who we're writing reviews for - the new consumer - not each other.)
I definitely understand having pet peeves though, and I think we all have them. I know I have plenty myself!
It's like when writing a review on a glass piece. Most people here who either do reviews or are a member of the community, know that it's excellent to use for temperature play.. and most people here know exactly what that is. Do I talk about this in every glass piece review that I do? Absolutely. Why? Because as many, many people have mentioned (more importantly, the admins), we aren't writing the reviews for each other.
Like Indiglo, I write my reviews assuming that the person who may be reading it doesn't know about materials, safety, etc. It's great if you do know it, but that doesn't mean that everyone else does.
As for collecting lint... I've never had an issue reading that in other peoples reviews and I always include that in my own.
I'm surprised (and slightly confused) that it makes you so upset that you wan't to scream....
