i have had two posts deleted (that i know of) under the excuse of "not following the terms of service" (even though neither one of my posts contained any profanity, nor were abusive, but only said the truth) to reviews that were either empty or outright slanderous to the product and/or company who sells them. ie: one review gave a 1 star to a stove that they never even used (Stove showed up broken and is made in China.) and another one gave a 1 star review to the meru pagoda stove over what THEY interpreted as patent infringement (This an inferior and blatant ripoff of the Emberlit. DO NOT BUY.). the last one wasn't even a verified purchase! yet my explanation on what constitutes patent infringement is was deleted? what?
suddenly i can't reply to ANYONE'S reviews because the all mighty "amazon community" says i'm not in "good standing". so, they allow product damaging reviews to be posted and yet persecute those who say anything to the contrary. yet they're the one's who have to approve them in the FIRST place? does this "amazon community" dance the goose-step two step or something?
EDIT: actually, i've noticed they've been systematically deleting every comment and answer i've given so far, no matter what it was or what i said. i feel as if i'm being silently erased and banned from all activity other than product reviews, which i find very cowardly. signed: The Oncoming Storm
