Do you think it's genuine or not? I'm not an expert but I have some doubts...

fake! it's obviously missing the authentication of the "phallic" symbols on the "d"s

it just doesn't seem worth the risk of paying good money for something which may be a fake.

I wouldn't buy it. I really doubt it's real.

It's not "too good to be true". In fact it misses most of Freddie's typical "curves". And indeed, the "dd" is the most noticeable fault of the faker.

Still, this signature looks much better than this shit:

Actually, I wrote to the fan club just as BrianHMay adivsed me and Jackie Smith claims that it's a genuine Freddie's signature.

Idiots buy everything. Their fault. 220 pounds for a fake signature?

Just a month ago two beautiful genuine signed LP's (Queen I and Queen II) sold for 160 pounds on ebay.

The POTU lyrics look so "perfect" that they are clearly fake - compare with other handwritten song lyrics. Besides that, I asked Peter Freestone to be sure and he confirme that POTU is for sure fake.

This one is really difficult:

I'm quite sure it's fake but it's a really really nice fake.

could be real, could be fake, I can't say.
I did, however, compare it with a real signature. I put them side by side and came up with these three differences.

The supposed fake signature:

1. has different "incomplete" D's, as pointed out by others earlier.
2. has a dot above the E, instead of the I.
3. has a hard-to-notice R after the F in "Freddie". It looks like Fueddie or something like that lol

Therefore, I can not legitimately say that it is indeed fake, but if it is, these three differences will be the defining reasons why.
