It is laughable that Amazon would review your hands on Kindle post while allowing non Kindle owners to have their say. Especially now, when the ratings are moving up based on the reviews of actual owners.
Cheez. Go figure.
Is this the first product that Amazon has ever sold that's their own? Perhaps that's the difference. If it was a review about someone else's watch or dress or laundry detergent or book that they sell (do they really sell books?), it was no skin off Amazon's nose. But perhaps now they see all the hysterical reviews about their own product and think they need to manage this somehow. Just a thought.
