From past experience, I don't trust any BlueBoard reviews, no matter what. The BB doesn't work. Something should be done about it. But probably won't be.
Just recently I was contacted by an agency that had good BB ratings and being in the middle of other work, I didn't reflect and said OK to them. Sure enough when the time came for payment, they didn't pay and I had to resort to....let's call them "other measures" to make them pay me.
To slightly distort a common Italian saying: "It's good to trust the BB. It's even better not to".

There are certainly ways to "manually" get very high BB rating. Just like those badly-made games on app store with insanely high scores.
I agree with Tom, partially. BB has been working okay for me. But be sure to ALWAYS, AAALLLWAYS look into the reviews. If they are flooded with 5 star ratings but no comment, or all left by new users/unverified users, better check out the lowest rating and what they have to say.
A credit check service can come in handy too.
