How Important Is the O1 Visa Recommendation Letter?

If someone needs a letter of recommendation for an O1 visa and the letter is a bit over-the-top, do you just sign it anyway?

The O1 visa recommendation letter is a very important part of the application. Support letters should be a true representation of a person's accomplishments. Inaccurate information could come back to hurt the applicant, for example, when applying for a green card through the EB1 visa category (which is most common for O-1 visa holders). The EB-1 visa requires much more documentation and evidence, and you don’t want any of the additional pieces of documentation or evidence to contradict the O1 visa recommendation letter you submitted.
