When a person is not breathing, permanent brain damage begins after 4 minutes and death in 6 minutes after that. Can you count on help arriving before that time? Learning proper CPR techniques is easy and you can learn it in 30 minutes at CPR Test Center.

Silly Amazon Review Guidelines
« on: February 29, 2016, 08:30:18 pm »


I wonder which part of the guidelines I need to work on. Maybe they think "Fram" is a dirty word.
Oh well, I'm not going to bother with it.

Amazon reviews, aren't they something?  I am not knocking most of the reviews; I am glad for the detail in some of them.  Apparently though,  some people have made it a full-time "hobby" of writing Amazon reviews about everything they buy, including the most common place and inane products around.  Just last week when speaking with a friend about this kind of thing, and the product reviews we had seen that could have been better left unsaid, he mentioned sea salt; imagine, reviews about sea salt.

Time to kill?  Write a review about anything for Amazon. (For that matter, place a comment on this forum!)   :D

I don't think they get paid but certain merchants offer severely reduced prices on upcoming products for their most loyal reviewers to try.

there are professional reviewers out there that are paid to give reviews.  Last year amazon sued four website reviewing services who sold reviews to companies that sold products on Amazon and other online stores.

Oh, really?   ;)  ;)  ;)  ;)  !!!  We all know that all reviews are true and honest, just like anything we read on the Internet is true!  ;)

Interesting though, that Amazon caught them red-handed.
