    Amazon has banned brands from offering free or discounted products to users in exchange for leaving reviews on its site.

    I have no idea what they mean ;)

        Amazon were criticised quite heavily for allowing this to happen but the worst culprit is Amazon itself :dunno:

        It was placing reviews that were made of products sold through Amazon above all others.

        Rather reminiscent of Abou Ben Adhem

        And showed the names whom love of God had blest,
        And lo! Ben Adhem's name led all the rest.

        (Leigh Hunt)

        Sorry about the literary reference :noidea: :heehee:
