When was the last time you were publicly praised for something? It’s a damn good feeling for a mentor when a review comes in from a mentee saying how great (aka smart) they are.
Ego for sure plays a role in this topic. If you are reading this portion of this FAQ, you’ve taken the time to look into this so I’d suggest scrolling reviews on a few mentor’s profiles and you will then understand why they do it.
We have a channel that pipes in realtime-reviews so all of the feedback is visible to all of the community and mentors- praise in front of your peers is a strong motivator for ambitious folks (which all of our mentors are).
