Google is getting really aggressive with removing reviews :-(
I've had 3 out of 6 review removed so far. One review was from Grumpy on here. The other was from the Android Cross Promotion G+ club from someone that had never reviewed any of my apps before. 
Finally, the third one was from ME! They removed my own rating. Heck, I didn't even leave a review, just a 5 star rating. Are you not even allowed to review your own apps anymore? What is really weird is that none of the reviews for my previous app were removed. What is going on here?
Besides Google being mean that is.

I highly recommend not using/posting fake reviews. It's really not worth the risk of having your game suspended.

Never had this issue  - I just have a  "please review this app" popup in my games, seems to work fine

It's odd, because my review wasn't fake. I played the game for at least 10 minutes and reviewed it fairly. I used an account that wasn't linked to my Google Play account. I have used that account in the past for other reviews, but I always download, play the game, rate it (and not always 5 stars). I don't do review exchanges any more, but if I like the look of an app on here, I'll give it a play and review it.

The only thing I can think of is that I was using the same phone/IP address that I use when developing and they detect that as dodgy.

I have similar problems... Most of my reviews are gone.(in new games) Most of deleted reviews were from China, Indonesia or Middle East. Only reviews that Google Play won't delete are those with 1 star. =)

Yeah, same things been happening to me for a while now.

But if Google wanted to be mean they would have banned you for life with an email and no further communication. You'd be looking at their policies and wondering what you did wrong.

Haha, so true! Guess I'll count myself lucky then!
