People have too much time on their hands.  I don't even review books I read.

The level of psychosis instilled in the right wingers directed against Clinton is kind of scary.

Makes you realize how easy it is to manipulate a population with propaganda.

My favorite are the dudes who are purchasing the book so they can biatch about Clinton under the protection of verified purchaser status.

This is now a hilarious Amazon reviews thread.

Wait until The Telegraph reporters find out about "Batman vs Superman" and "The Promise" getting thousands of fake reviews before they opened.

Crazy people with an ax to grind trying to smear their opponents before releases shouldn't surprise anyone at this point.

Amazon is rarely moved to delete reviews so publicly, although in November negative comments under a book by anti-Trump broadcaster Megyn Kelly appeared to be removed by the retailer.

When I worked there it wasn't terribly unusual for reviews to get purged.  Mostly, their system would notice the traffic, so it would get flagged for manual review by staff, who would then toss reviews that didn't appear to have used the product (or, in this case, read the book).

A Disappointing 2 stars ⭐⭐

It pains me to do so, but I have to give this Fark comment 2 stars. Because FortyHams is normally a reliable poster, this is the first time I've really been disappointed in a HamPost. Hopefully he (or maybe she? Not that it matters!) will get back on track. Looking forward to future comments.

Okay, when not dealing with politics, one star reviews can be better info than the glut of five stars. People get paid to write five stars. The one star with effort can point to a weakness that's relevant to consider.

"Donald Trump haters: Angelina Jolie, John Irving and other celebrity critics of the US president"

And that's how the article ended for me.  Did something not load correctly?

I heard her interview on NPR and she sounded more disconnected from reality than I have ever heard her. There's a reason we don't really remember the also-rans: the world keeps on moving while they get stuck in a moment that takes them much longer to process than anyone else, even their closest advisors.

Lol. I spent about 2 mins trying to figure out what I missed.

On the subject of Amazon reviews, look up "vagina flavored lube."

There's a fierce debate in the reviews. And a lot of them are careful to indicate whether or not they have encountered an actual vagina.

I'd link to it but you should have to work for these chuckles.

Delete their accounts.  They are demonstrated fraudsters.

She sounded pretty connected to me. I have to commend her patience while being asked "why don't people LIKE you?!" sixteen different ways.

You guys should see the book Zoe Quinn is selling on Amazon. (She's the devil according to Gamergators)

Such a vitrolic response to these women makes me more inclined to listen to them.

Perhaps it was partially bot-written, or that somebody just effed up.  Copy editors aren't what they used to be, if they're even around at all.

Why wouldn't amazon delete reviews from people who didn't buy the book?  It's supposed to be a review not a biatch session.
 
2017-09-12 06:02:31 PM  
How sad does your life have to be that you feel a need to attack rather than ignore? The thing that will hit her hardest is to just not buy the book, denying her a sale. Lack of sales will make people forget it, whereas vehemently attacking her might actually result in MORE sales.

The sad truth is groupthink has already decided on Clinton. No one is interested in learning anything or listening.

We've decided, as a society, that she's exactly what the Republicans have been saying for decades: corrupt and your enemy. She's out of touch because she's a corrupt politician. Every single question is probably a different beg the question fallacy.

Congrats US. You've swallowed the Republican line.
 
2017-09-12 06:03:40 PM  
Yeah, Amazon loves the traffic from people coming to read the fake reviews, so those aren't going away, but it makes looking for reviews of a product a total joke. They need to only allowed verified buyers to review stuff.
 
2017-09-12 06:04:25 PM  
How dare Amazon silence people who haven't read the book. Doesn't Amazon know that it is required to provide bandwidth so lazy assholes whose only "contribution" to society is sexist drivel can express their hatred of the person who isn't the president? They literally have no other opportunity to do so.

Can you?  Seriously you're now just copy and pasting the same thing from thread to thread.  Who cares that 43% of women voter for Trump, it means jack shiat as politics are so polarized.

When the narrative is that misogyny kept her from winning, yes it does mean something.  The narrative that white men kept her from the White House needs to end.
