Ha ha oh god now Amazon’s deleting reviews from other authors

Not authors reviewing their own work, or authors reviewing work from the same publisher. They’re pulling down all reviews from authors.

And just in case you think they might be sorta cool about it, they’re back to their usual bot-speak:

Any further violations of our posted Guidelines may result in the removal of this item from our website.

Note that they’re not talking about the reviewer’s book. It’s the book he’s writing the review for that they’re threatening to pull. So you guys out there who were thinking of paying back your writer enemies by reposting reviews to their work until Amazon yanks them, now’s your chance.

Best of all, once your enemies start to complain, the response they’ll get will be short and sweet and made of copypasta:

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.

http://www.comcastmustdie.com is moribund now, isn’t it? Has anyone registered Amazonmustdie.com?
