How do you get real web hosting reviews?

One of the biggest problems plaguing the web hosting industry is finding legitimate reviews. One writer goes to far as to call the entire industry a cesspool.

It's not difficult to create a simple comparison table across basic features and there is certainly some value to it. But web hosting has quickly become commoditized and every company offers near identical products. There is some differentiation on price but what about the intangibles? There are some companies people are really unhappy with and some that have a passionate user base. But they might both be offering near identical products. How can we accurately compare the two and make a recommendation?

I've created a new startup, Review Signal, which tries to address the more important aspect of web hosting reviews (and hopefully reviews in general): are the customers happy and would they recommend the service?
