Amazon sees the light
Despite the fact that 3000 loyal frenchman found JC's review of Kate OBerines book helpful, on Friday-Amazon decided to bury it several pages back and replace it with a five star review. I decided to call Amazon because they showed such disrespect to their readers.
I got someone on the line and asked them why JCs review was removed from the top spot because as I understood the process, he did nothing wrong. I said that I wanted to talk to the department that handled this issue. I was put on hold for a few minutes and then was told that I couldnt talk to anyone there, but I should give Amazon my email and they would get back to me in 24-48 hours. I told them that that wasn't good enough because they would never respond back and I wanted a live person to explain to me why the review had been pulled and if JC had broken any of Amazons rules.
I was put on hold again for a few minutes and was told yet again to give them my email. I refused once more and said I would be writing about this over the weekend and then call back again on Monday. Today Amazon obviously responded and has now "Spotlighted" JC's review of the book.
