From a quick Google search Kim would appear to be posting under her own name and, as her first post on the forum said, be a long-standing local resident.
Clearly the tone of the original post is rather OTT to say the least, but please could people hold off on the sniping unless/until there is evidence she is an official PR agent for the Leather Exchange.
Just as astroturfing is unacceptable, it is also harmful to the forum if anyone who posts anything positive is immediately shot down.
My rule of thumb is that proven astroturfers deserve everything they get; everyone else deserves the benefit of the doubt.
(Granted, the only people who usually write about any business in such extravagant terms are astroturfers, but still...)
