I was a compulsive reviewer for Amazon. They put me into their Vine program where they would send stuff and I would review it. I put every ounce of my intellect into the reviews. Now they have chopped me off.
I always expected it. Nobody in the Vine program did honest reviews. They all simpered to stay on the program. So did I, most of the time. Then once in a while I would have a field day tearing down some horrible product. I suppose I offended somebody high up. I always do. I got Google to ban me from their ad service because it was so horrible.
The women in the house kept at me - get it, get it! I didn't want to get those things any more. How many reviews could I do of shampoo? I still did my best.
Now they cut me off without explanation. I will shrug and move on. Perhaps you will some day get on the program. Give 5 stars to everything or get thrown out. I will stop all my Amazon reviews now, but I might still buy from them once in a while. Nah, I will never buy from them again. Take that Mr. Bezos!
ps. Did you know it's incredibly difficult to close your Amazon account?
pps. Here's another note from another robot. A robot wasp nest!
ps. since this was a bonus program, they have the right to kick me out anytime they want, in as rude a manner as possible. Thus is the power of the net giants.
