Amazon shuns/deletes negative reviews. #FairPlay

Here is the review, word for word, on a product I received that was uses and damaged. After calling their customer support team, I was promised a replacement. It hasn’t shown up yet, but other buyers WERE able to get their reviews in, and many of them also complained about this particular product arriving used/refurbishe(?). I have been using @Twitter to get my point across, and they just don’t seem to get it.

This is the review that was REJECTED by @Amazon. Not cool. Manipulating reviews and ratings this way is totally unfair.

Amazon review for used Schumacher Inverter shipment.

“I have ordered two of these. The first one I received over a year ago and is was/is absolutely flawless. Total powerhouse. However, I am rating this item at 2 stars because the second one I ordered, which arrived two days ago, is very clearly a used or refurbished item. All of the hardware was loose inside the box and not in a sealed bag, the way it comes when the item is new. Also, there were scars on this unit making it clearly obvious that it had been installed and used. Some of the hardware was even stripped. Someone was decent enough to put the cables back into a twisty tie, but the ends of the positive and negative cables are obviously scarred up. Please see attached pictures.

Maybe it was mistakenly shipped out when it should have been sent back to the manufacture as a returned item. I called Amazon, and they said that they are the seller so they take full responsibility. But, the manufacturer either supplied them with this used unit and did so knowingly, or the nice hard-working folks at Amazon’s distribution center grabbed a returned item on accident or someone mistakenly put this returned item back on the shelf for sale. Amazon is sending out a replacement, and although this is an inconvenience, I will change my rating if the replacement unit is indeed NEW and in perfect working order.

I am super disappointed at the quality control we have experienced in the last 6 to 12 months with Amazon. I find myself sending many more things back these days more than ever. 

Along with Amazon being inundated with fake reviews, which they are trying to get a hold of, they also almost always don’t allow comments and reviews like this one. So I fully expect this not to be posted, or for it to be deleted. That is not fair play. This happened. I should be able to post an honest review.”

Amazon rejecting negative reviews.

There are eight babies in there. Barely 4 weeks old. And mama is laying over the top of two of them, LOL. My girlfriend took this video as I was texting her about her previous video which I commented “Vermin!“, LOL. But you have to admit… They’re pretty damn cute.

Google+… Another one bites the dust.

3 weeks until Google Plus (G+) shuts down. Better create an archive by April 2nd if you want to keep anything/everything. 

Man, Google has started and then shut down a lot of services in its history. More than any other company that still stays in business. Know why no one else starts a new social media platform similar to Facebook? Because they’ll fail. As long as there’s a Facebook, there will be no other. And we can all thank Friendster for this social media phenomenon- they started the whole thing.

Hymer just killed Roadtrek and left 900+ people out of work.

Holy sh*t, Roadtrek just got shut down because f*ckin’ Hymer lost all their money and faked a whole bunch of income and assets that they did not have. And then borrowed against it. And since Hymer bought Roadtrek barely 2 years ago, Roadtrek just got closed down. Even though they’re in Canada, Roadtrek was an iconic and beloved American Class B Van for the past many many decades. Shame on you Hymer. You guys sucked from the moment you came into North America. I hope you get sued like crazy. And I hope to God it all goes up for auction and another RV company buys it, kills off you’re stupid, unreliable, cheaply made Hymer vans, and keeps all of the Roadtreks in production and for sale. If not, you’re stupid *ss North American manager literally just killed an American/Canadian loved and iconic Class B van that has been around forever. Hymer – you suck. And I hope you plan to do something for the 900+ people that found out with no notice that they had no jobs to come back to you on Monday, and no severance pay. Have I already said that you completely suck Hymer? Shame on you. Go back to Germany and continue making your beautiful trailers and don’t feel bad about f*cking up stuff for us North Americans who are huge Roadtrek fans. I hope you all get crabs. Big ones that bite. Hard.
