    There's a word for people who act as you do and still maintain clean consciences.

    Oh? I think it's just an issue of degree rather than a case of binary. On a sliding scale, one would be much higher than the other, but I haven't noticed you saying that I'm wrong in principle...

    In about a half hour it'll be "Instructor of Note" to some 120 young minds paying for a good university education... Oh what fun we'll have together ;)

    Don't tell them you post here.

    I actually remember another guy--great poster but can't recall his name--who said he taught a class and did refer his students here for a specific thread that related to the issue.

    He was a far-left-leaning guy who was nonetheless a big Ron Paul fan. Dabbled in MMA promoting, too, I believe.

    Simply don't give a shit about random reviews on Amazon. I guess I should have been more specific on that. Especially given how easily such reviews can be manipulated.

    Nice, you can't conflate how deleting "troll" posts is sensors people's opinions. I would absolutely have the same problem because it needs to be applied evenly across the platform or else it is biased. I posted Donald Trumps reviews of his book with unverified purchase reviews, they're still there.

    As another poster said, if your arguement is only verified purchaser reviews should be allowed, why are they allowing all the other 5 star unverified reviews up? Why is there a different standard between Donald Trumps book and Hillarys? Answer that question then we can have a conversation. Until then leave the personal insults on the tips of your fingers, it's very unbecoming of you.

    Sure but then don't pretend you're some enlightened thinker for neglecting a useful resource.

    You realize the people who's reviews were getting deleted never purchased or read the book?

    You can read whatever you want from my comments. I make no boasts of enlightenment. In fact, I get it wrong probably more than I get it right. But I exercise my own judgement and ultimately that's what matters, at least to me.

    The Simple Solution is Amazon should only allow people who bought the book (through Amazon because that's all they can control) the ability to give their opinion. if I give Hillary 20 bucks and I want to give her a 1 star. I should be allowed to do that.

    Trolls/Haters arnt going around in large numbers giving shitty reviews on amazon...at least from what I seen...so this stands out.

    Not to mention the fact that Hilary supporters probably saw the reviews and reported them...politics is very personal in this country..trump supporters would've reported too.

    So that's why Amazon took them down.

    I know you are trying to imply that amazon loves Hilary and hates trump...but if you think the logical answer isn't that

    If it's people that didn't buy it then I don't see a problem with deleting their reviews.

    I bet the majority of the bad reviews and one stars were from Bernie supporters, not Trump supporters. It's a little alarming to see some of the liberals on the board not able to see where the real problem lies--it isn't with Trump. As far as Democrats are concerned, Trump is a unifying force. Hillary, however, is not.

    They are the group who you'd think still has a bone to pick with Hillary - there is still a fight for the direction of that party.

    Eh, few figures in the modern political landscape are so polarizing, though her time as a relevant figure is pretty much done. I hope her book flops miserably, but I can understand Amazon not wanting people to use their review section to talk about Hillary and Bill murdering people with trains or whatever. You have to show people early that their manifestos are a waste of time.

    It's on my Christmas list. Just so I can savour her pain, disappointment and shock again.

    The only time Hilary gave me wood was listening to her concession speech...24 hours after The Donald had won.

    Of course, that's still one more erection than she managed to give Bill...;)
