The Amazon review system is being heavily gamed. I have posted about it before, on Amazon as well as other places. There is an organisation called "Freelancer com" that among other things, allows people to request and receive paid reviews at the rate of fifty for fifty dollars. An individual who specialises in doing this will have (and advertise the fact) fifty different Amazon accounts and boilerplate review scripts. It is commonplace on Freelancer for people to hire other people to do this. It is about time Amazon did something about it - their review system is a joke.
