I disagree. The standard I prefer is full disclosure and trust the
manager. If there is some reason why special consideration should be
given to your review, make that clear. This is true whether you believe
that consideration should be positive or negative. Then, write the best
review you can.
We try hard to make sure our managers are intelligent and suited to
the task. I trust them to weigh your concerns and complements
appropriately as long as they know any special circumstances.
