Amazon removes all reviews of Spore
Posted by ballightning on September 13, 2008
Amazon has taken the drastic action of removing all reviews from spore, whether negative or positive. But Amazon says there was no foul play at work, instead saying that it was nothing more then a glitch… likely…
“There’s just a glitch on the site that ended up wiping those reviews clean,” said Amazon.com spokesperson Tammy Hovey. “So we’re working on putting them back up. I don’t have any details (on what happened). But we’re working on it so all the customer reviews will be back up on the site.”
Many Amazon users are deeply unhappy saying that it has degraded the Amazon rating system.
“Utterly disgraceful,” wrote Amazon user Paul Tinsley. “This means that the Amazon review system has not value at all to its customers. Sad days indeed.”
Thankfully by 2:10 p.m. PDT, the reviews were back up on the site.
