Shills love exclamation points!!

Postby TheDukester » 12 Oct 2008 14:54

Wow, the HLP isn't even trying to hide its blatant hiring of shills any longer. I guess they're confident (and I can't really blame them for this part) that Amazon's review "system" is so fundamentally flawed and so easily manipulated that there's really no reason to worry about any subterfuge.

For a good laugh, check out the most recent string of five-star posts. I'd almost say they were written by the same person, especially given the titles:

Wonderful Read!

WOW! I enjoyed this book!

Because it's there!

Great backstory on Paul and more!

as always, Herbert & Anderson deliver!

Gee whiz, it's almost like the HLP — most likely in the form of Byron, taking his orders (as usual) from KJA — proided these idiots with a template. And one that uses exclamation points! Wow!

I'm debating about whether or not to entitle my review:

THIS BOOK TURNED MY NIPPLES GREEN!!! (And then they fell off!)

What do you think?

I dont think it would be completely honest review unless you said why it turned your nipples green and fell off. Im sure you could find something though.

False alarm.

I went ahead and used it on a review of Kevin's The Martian War. :mrgreen:

At least they didn't turn blue!

Because that would have been strange!

I'm gonna stop using exclamation points!

Ok, I think I've finished...

False alarm!

Blue would've been SO last year. :roll:

I figured, moon = green cheese and Martians = little green men, and went with it.

Besides, green goes with my eyes, which are hazel. :)

My mistake. Green = Martians.

Green also goes well with my eyes too, which are hazel. However, I like calling my eyes green instead of hazel... um, erm I mean down with KJA! :D

You have the little speckles of yellow-brown and gold, too?

They're mostly green with a brown ring around the pupil. Sometimes they appear grayish in color.
