IF Amazon Thinks They Only Have 1,000 Fake Reviewers They Are Definitely ‘Under The Influence’ At Work!

This is a BIG joke on the part of Amazon, just in the same way that most of us, who actually do real business on the site, know that at least 50% of the reviews are a JOKE.

They are out-and-out BOGUS and Amazon has ENCOURAGED that for decades.

There were people in the U.S. writing reviews for the Sony RX10 II, that they claimed that they had bought from Amazon, 8 weeks BEFORE the camera started shipping in the U.S.!

I have review on some of my books from people who I know, just from what the review says, never saw the book let alone bought it.

Amazon, and here I speak as one who has MORE of a monetary stake in Amazon (in terms of the number of shares I own) that in any other ‘thing’ (including our (very modest) house) in the World. Yes, I am a genuine stakeholder. I want Amazon to do well. But on this issue I know that Amazon will always be disingenuous and even duplicitous. They WANT reviews — more stars the better. They EVENTUALLY published my 1-star review against the Sony a77 Mk II, but only after 72 hours when my 4- and 5-star reviews get published in seconds!

I do plan to attend the next shareholder meeting, in Seattle, in person. My main goal is to address the issue of Kindle books and the widespread misconception that you need a Kindle to read a Kindle eBook. That drives me nuts. Amazon share are going gangbusters. But the share price does not reflect quite a few things that are drastically wrong with this company — their encouragement of bogus reviews high on that list.

The UNACCEPTABLE face of Obamacare in NH -- or lack thereof. She has to go. GROBR.

The UNACCEPTABLE face of Obamacare in NH — or lack thereof. She has to go. GROBR.

Obama’s claim yesterday that there were 21 million hits on the damn, poxed ObamaCare (ACA) Website, healthcare.gov, was another boldface LIE.

He knows it BUT refuses to tell the truth because of the level of fraud and deception involved.

Yes, the Republicans hijacked the Website. That was pretty obvious and the LOGICAL thing for them to do. I do NOT blame them. It was plain to anybody who knew anything about computer systems that this Website was going to be hacked.

So, YOU had build it to perform through the hacks — in particular Denial of Service (DoS) attacks, i.e., flooding the site with BOGUS traffic from automated ‘bots‘, i.e., robotic software. Motherhood and apple pie stuff when designing PROPER, mission-critical applications.

Yes, of course, the GOP PACs paid millions to orchestrate the attacks — which are obviously still going on.

BEST money they have spent in 9 years. At last they are using some brains (though McCain yet again proved that his brain went into retirement 8 years ago when he made that stupid statement about sending Air Force 1 to Silicon Valley to bring programmers back to D.C. — as if today’s systems have to be developed with all the players sitting together).

I estimate that 95% of the traffic is BOGUS.
DoS attacks.

Check the posts. I have been right as of DAY 1.

I was the 1st to call for a Congressional Hearing. They are having it tomorrow.

But, they haven’t called ME to ask what they should be asking.

So you will get inane, idiotic questions that mean nothing and uncover even less.

I will do this for FREE. I will help any Member of Congress with the investigation into this CRIME of the CENTURY.

Remember, I have forgotten MORE about designing large, mission-critical systems than most programmers of today have yet managed to learn — and I say that with utmost humility but sincerity.
