|Jack and Rocky: You thought you won your battle with Amazon!|
However, my review for the Kindle Fire 6 which I also did that day, is still live on the review page.
So, rating Conservative political books 5 stars - ZAPPED - rating Kindle Fire 6 - remains.
I've sent yet another email into Amazon. There are other reviews missing also, though I'm not sure which ones. Amazon was showing I had 95 reviews written as of last night when I updated the missing reviews, however, this morning it's only showing 81. I think some older reviews are missing - I'm pretty sure I did a review for The Ten Commandments of Propaganda
by Brian Anse Patrick quite awhile ago and it's no longer there.
What Amazon is doing is frightening - quietly deleting reviews - whether for politics or recipe books, someone paid for the experience (or product) - Amazon most often receives the money, and then due to complaints or perhaps personal ideology, deletes reviews. I don't care if you took time to craft it well or made it brief - you took the time. As a consumer, I count on reviews and I am smart enough to look at a wide variety of reviews, look at other reviews the reviewers have made (it's easy to spot a phony) and then make my choice. Now, just imagine what Amazon is doing and apply it to our government controlling the internet. I can barley get any answers from Amazon! Have you ever tried to deal with the IRS? Have you heard any of the stories from the Vets who are falling rapidly through the system because there are so many departments, rules, regulations, and no one knows what the other is doing? And you think somehow the Government is going to "protect" you?
Here are the reviews and the email confirmation they went through (these were from last night, however, they are showing the original date I posted the review. Also, when they reposted the reviews, the comments were gone (I'd gotten a few angry ones on my Philosophy 100 review)
