How many authors find that anyone actually reviews their books after free copies are sent out?
The weakness of the system seems to be that nobody is obliged to actually do the review.

Actually, we are.

>2 Julia_G: It's not as if anyone would come and snatch the book back if you didn't review it, but not reviewing a received book feeds into the selection algorithm and greatly reduces the chances of being awarded another book.

For a giveaway, the author can't insist on a review but for the Early Reviewers, it's worked into the selection process. I think it's more likely that someone would bs the content of the review to post the required 25 words.
