Normally, when you review something at Amazon.com, and give it a good rating, it shows up a few hours later.
The two times I’ve tried to rate something with only one star, the review never showed up.
Amazon.com is clearly censoring one-star reviews in order to create the illusion that whatever you were thinking about buying is highly liked by everyone.
This makes their reviews pretty useless. I'm surprised that there isn't more outrage in the blogosphere.
From now on, I'm buying all my books at Tower Books. It turns out that Tower has lower prices than Amazon, and all orders for $25 or more ship for free, just like at Amazon.
