Oh, Amazon. Again?


Amazon pulls fan’s review of favorite author’s book. When fan questions why, Amazon rep accuses him of being a paid shill and says “I understand that you are upset, and I regret that we have not been able to address your concerns to your satisfaction. However, we will not be able to offer any additional insight or action on this matter.”

Sound familiar? Fan sends followup email explaining that he is just a reader; his review is legit.

Amazon tells fan that if he emails them about the review again, they will stop selling the author’s book on their site.

Hey, I guess it’s possible that this story has passed through a couple levels of Telephone before it comes to us, but is there anyone that doesn’t find this story believable on some level?
