So far, at least 8 people have offered (either here, on Twitter or via messages) to leave a review of Experiment #1 on Amazon:
I’m not going to name names, but only 4 people have. It would really help all the experiments sell (which might encourage more people to take part in future experiments) if they had more reviews.

With hindsight, I should have bought them using a different amazon account. If I review them as me, somebody might notice. If I review them as someone else, it won’t say I’m a verified purchaser.
What’s less clear is why I don’t want to get “caught”. There’s nothing pornographic on this site or in the reports. My wife always used to pass off my naked activities as harmless eccentricity and she used to join in when she could but she’s gone off the idea and doesn’t particularly approve of me keeping going. She wouldn’t be really bothered though. Other people on Amazon could easily work out who I am but, a bit like bumping into a friend at a nude beach, if they’re there too they can’t object!
So I enjoyed the experiments (and I’ll say more about them at some point) but I won’t be reviewing them on Amazon even though I’m not sure why not really.

Last time I left a review of something on Amazon (which was last year), the interface asked me how I wanted to be known for the review. I’m not sure if they still do that, but I do see “Anonymous” reviews on Amazon which are also “Verified purchases”.
Admittedly, I haven’t tried it recently, so I can’t be sure that’s an option. The reasons you describe could well be why most readers don’t leave a review. I need to experiment with this.
