    - Is there any reason lead app store to delete my reviews ? ( too much reviews / IP , inappropriate contents .. )

    Beware, the use of certain types of review services (buying reviews, etc.) might put you in violation of the developer program agreement.

    I think when they see many reviews from the same IP they can automatically remove them as an auto-promotion, etc. No one knows exact rules about the policy, but this is their (Apple) store and they can remove anything without an notice, which for sure is described somewhere in one of milions documents, agreements, contracts, notes, etc

    Expect the review times to take about 24 hours.

    Apple blacklists certain reviews and if you have a bunch on your app sometimes they will wipe all of them or even warn then shutdown your account.

    You might be able to get away with using a review service but your best bet is to have a good prompt user for review in your app.
