presumably the manufacturers know more about their product than the reseller, so their descriptions are going to be better, right? if everyone has to rewrite them, then the standard is more likely to go down, not up.
Well stated. I keep coming back to this issue as both a publisher and someone searching for products/and services. The algorithm seems to be rewarding brands and penalizing resellers but there are plenty of industries and situations where that doesn't make sense for either party. The furniture world seems to be one of them.
