Do no reviews turn people away?

I just launched my store and I have the product reviews app installed. However, thee are no reviews currently, so all the products say no reviews in clear words. My concern is that people might turn away from my store seeing that products have no reviews. Should I uninstall the product review app until I get some sales?  Or does having no reviews make no difference?  Please provide input.thanks.

Plagued by bots aaarrgghh!!

Hi folks We're being plagued by bots posting customer feedback forms, around 20-30 e-mails per day (mainly from Russia for some reason). We've now changed our contact form to an app that has recaptcha but think it was too late.  Any ideas how we can stop these please? Will they just move on eventually? Many thanks, any advice much appreciated.  Sarah and Craig :-)
