Everybody, SHUT THE HELL UP!!! You`re fighting like kids. dog or man, i know that free reviews are hurting the commercial writing market, i agree with you on that, but what i`m saying is that YOU should`nt be wasting your time complaining about it. you should accept the fact that amazon isn`t going away any time soon, and neither are user reviews. leave the computer, stop fighting with nanshork, and go persue your dream of becoming a writer, no one`s holding you back, i give you best wishes for your future in writing. (i DON`T want to be your enemy!!)

"perhaps it`s because it wasn`t you who was being told that it`s perfectly okay for your profession to be whittled out from under you"

Okay fair enough, but I`m not sure what there can be done about this.. I mean, why would Amazon switch to paying people to write reviews when most free user reviews do the job just as well (sometimes). I can usually tell when a free user review is reliable or not. Anyways, if you can come up with a good way to stop them, I`m all for it, but the only ways I currently know is by using unaffordable lawyers or by the seller paying you for favorable reviews. Good luck, this discussion is over. (no I`m not being sarcastic)

Firstly, I said that your assumptions were about my background, not that you were misinformed of such. Get my arguements straight. And hiphop, yes I`m on a games/funny site talking to some nerds, I myself am a nerd, just what is your point? Lastly, voshiru if you read all of my replies you will notice that I answer all of his arguements before going on to whatever I go onto. Also your point on having the last word made no sense.

Dog, you`re wasting your time with Nanshork. Every time you point out what`s wrong with his last argument, he just goes back to the one before, or starts a new one. The thing is, it`s unbecomming, dood -- like picking on the handicapped. I think that`s what Nifu was trying to say.

I think your basic point is right, Dog, but you`re also right that it`s a 99-1 deal, and not just in here, everywhere. If Amazon really is hurting the market for commercial writing, it`s probably already over.

As for "having the last word," Nanshork, you do that with your points, not by calling the other guy out -- if you do, he doesn`t have to honor his pledge.

...Nanshork, you said on page 2 that I was misinformed about the actual substance of the conversation, then you tried to say on page 3 that you`d only ever claimed I was misinformed about your background. From the sounds of things, other people caught the contradiction, too.

Freakish, try standing in front of a McDonald`s and preaching about the ill effects of eating their food, and see how far your first amendment argument gets you. The law protects first amendment rights, but it also protects people against having their commercial livelihoods injured in the process.

Nifu, I can`t hang wallpaper and paint fences at the same time -- I can`t defend my position to a 99-1 opposition who thinks I`m uninformed, and appease someone who claims I`m being nasty, at the same time. If you`d thought I went snippy too early in the discussion, perhaps it`s because it wasn`t you who was being told that it`s perfectly okay for your profession to be whittled out from under you.

Dog or man, the first amendment says that all men have the freedom of speach, that is exactly what user reviews are for, they are used to express ones opinion, and inform others of their opinion. So what your saying is that we must deprive people of their opinion? There are plenty of jobs for aspiring writers like yourself, I have nothing against you, just let people say what they want to say, do what they want to do, and get on with your life. If amizon wanted to hire writers, they would, but that`s not the case. I know that i`m just a "teen" but please don`t judge me like you judged nanshork. just forget about amazon.com and move on! No offence, but you`re acting like a child. (please DON`T reply back to me with some childish comeback like dill-weed)

...both of these are copied and pasted directly from the site; thank you for playing, drive through.

First of all, you can say whatever you want, doesn`t actually mean anything. Just because you say that you are something doesn`t prove that you are, many people lie to prove their point. Secondly, you`re idiotic assumptions had nothing to do with you and you`re claim of kicking my butt. If you paid attention to the entire arguement and what I was responding to you would realize that I was referring to your assumptions dealing with my intellectual character and how I`ve "never even heard of the New Yorker". If you knew anything of actual intellectual debate, which you so claim to use, you would know that the main point of such is to debate points and ideas. It is not to make derogatory statements about your opponent. Lastly, I honestly do not care what could happen `theoretically`. Theoretically I could win the lottery and invest money wisely and be a trillionare. The probability of such happening is neigh impossible. Theoretically most anything is possible. But is i

When did I say needlessly hostile? I only said that your hostility is working against you and as you continue to spout verbal diarrhea, the hole you dig gets deeper.

"So, pretty please, with sugar on it, don`t write free user reviews."

That almost got to me... but you went on... and on!

You may not be `misinformed`, but that doesn`t make writing free user reviews wrong. It`s just that they`re ruining YOUR career and you`re attempting to sway the readers of this site unsuccessfully. Next time try a nicer tone... you`d be amazed at how effective that can be...

Could I, theoretically, use lawyers to prevent people from expressing their opinions? Absolutely -- on any number of fronts, among them the very same intellectual property protections that prevent a person from creating a parody of a book if the parody is too close to the original (cf, "The Wind Done Gone" debacle). Free expression gets shut down in this country all the time, provided the people being injured are big, megalithic corporations. These days they even use anti-racketteering laws to shut people up, when those people are injuring a company.

As I remember it, you said, "You`re misinformed," and then, after I said that this is what I do for a living, you said, "How did I just get my butt kicked?" For future reference: if you`re having an argument about air safety with somone else, and you call that other person misinformed, after which he says, "Well, actually, I`m a professional Air Traffic Controller...." then, guess what, you just got your butt kicked, period. The other guy doesn`t have to be making any assumptions about you to be the one who just kicked your butt, and to say so. "Misinformed" is a specific term with a specific meaning. Use it incorrectly, in a setting like this, and pffft! there goes your credibility.

Now who`s making ignorant accusations about someone? Also, I never called you needlessly hostile that was someone else. Thirdly, Napsters free music is not the same as people voicing their opinions. You think that if you had lawyers you would be able to stop people from voicing their opinions? Also, you cannot say you were having a well-considered or thoughtful debate with anybody when you use the term dill-weed. You`re right, I don`t have the vaguest idea of your expertise, just as you don`t have the vaguest idea of my knowledge base. You just make wild assumptions just because of my age group.

I refuse to carry on a well-considered, thoughtful debate with someone who has obviously never even HEARD of The New Yorker, and thinks he can call a complete stranger "misinformed" without having the vaguest idea what level of expertise the other person brings to the table. Go back, read the entire correspondence from the beginning, and then tell me that *I`m* the one who`s being needlessly hostile. Better yet, go to a writers` workshop and tell `em how great Amazon.com is -- maybe we`ll see how much fun it is for you to be on the wrong end of the 99-1 tide of local opinion for a while.

Okay, one: you got your butt kicked for saying I was misinformed -- you assumed I didn`t know anything more about it than you do, and it turned out that assumption was in error. If that doesn`t make you feel inherently chastened, it`s not my fault that you can`t figure out when you`ve been owned, without being hit over the head. Two, your napster argument is a self-evident red herring. Something available for free on the `net was cutting into the profits of a commercial venture, but since the venture in question was well-funded and powerful, the free version got spanked for it. EXACTLY the same situation as free reviews on Amazon, except that I can`t hire an army of lawyers to send threatening letters and fight for me in court. Three, at the same time I`m being told in a snotty tone of voice that I don`t know what I`m talking about, despite the fact that this is my profession, AND that I`m being needlessly hostile. THAT`S amusing. Four, piss off. I`m sick of this, and right.

New writers (aspiring to all genres) often get their first publications -- the ones they can use to impress agents in their query letters -- by writing reviews, in particular book reviews. And the market for these reviews has collapsed by thirty percent since the launch of Amazon, mostly among the smallest for-profit publications where the completely unpublished authors may have had their best shot. I`m sure it doesn`t seem like any big deal to those who think I`m being hostile about it, but it doesn`t sound like it`s their ox being gored, either. So, pretty please, with sugar on it, don`t write free user reviews.

You can`t tell someone that you know nothing about that they are misinformed and not expect to get your butt kicked for it -- this is a valuable lesson that you might otherwise have had to learn in a setting with much higher stakes.

...Oh, for the rest of you, "please do not write free user reviews." THERE, HOW WAS THAT?

Also, you might insult me due to my age, but I am at least mentally more mature than you. For example, if I choose to insult someone I can use something much more creative than dill-weed, or even something that would get turned into the phrase dill-weed due to profanity.

Something tells me this is all made up. I looked at "all products by Viewsonic" and that product is not there on the list. It might`ve been some wacky April Fools Joke. I did copy and paste the name and it did come up. Since the product is listed on the database but not on the "products by Viewsonic" list, it might`ve been either a hack attack, an April Fools Joke, or an easter egg (hidden thing). The pictures included an atomic bomb, a still from "Back To The Future", and a picture of a guy waving around a cat saying "This computer owns the man as well as the cat, which is under a sublease to him. This should tell you something.", and pirates with text saying "Hey did you guys here about that new pirate movie coming out? It`s rated RRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRGGGGH!"

"1. There have been reports of people frying their systems by trying to pump in 1.21 gigawatts of power. This is incorrect; you`re using the wrong unit of measurement. This system requires 1.21 jigawatts of power to function at full.

2. Use 1.21 jigawatts of power only when the PC itself is moving at 88 MPH. If you don`t, at the very least it could shut itself off. But worse, it could explode, it could create a black hole, it could undo all that has been done, or it could have sex with your wife. :("

Free reviews are killing nothing. Also, there is a huge difference between napster and free reviews. Napster was free music. If, for example, people were putting free programs in with their reviews on amazon it would be a different story, but they`re not. All people are doing is putting their own opinion. If you think that that is somehow depriving people of their jobs then you are quite misinformed dog_or_man.

Too much wrong with this to even have the space to start picking through it all. THE ORIGINAL POINT was that free reviews are killing the commercial market for an entire sphere of creative endevor, which is bad, period. When people tried to do the same thing to the music-recording industry, it was so bad that the industry had to unleash its suits to put a stop to it and threaten people with jail. The only difference between the napster situation and free reviews on Amazon is that I can`t afford the legal team (and the representation in Washington) to put a stop to free reviews on Amazon. If I could, I certainly would.

To the rest of you:
DON`T WRITE FREE USER REVIEWS!

1 person vs 100 customers. come on dog_or_man you don`t see the benefit to consumers. Opinions are opinions whether people get paid or not.
Do these New Yorker reviewers buy every product they review? Or do people send them things to review? Maybe a few extra bucks as incentive to review their product? Even if paid reviewers bought everything and there was no such thing as corruption, Id rather read more opinions than just 1 person who could have been having a bad day or a defective product

sorry if I offended you, but its still my opinion that paid reviewers wont have a job if they don`t sell products. Who would you hire, someone who says the truthabout your bad product or someone that will glorify it?
It`s better for the consumer to hear from fellow consumers. If the company makes a good product they wont need to hire a reviewer.

While the technology may have changed in a way that was adverse to the one-hour photo processing, it wasn`t because people all of a sudden decided to start photo-processing each others` film, just because they figured out how to do it for free -- and, moreover, if people *had* started doing exactly that, they would have been arrested -- because businesses, unlike self-employed artisans, enjoy all sorts of unfair protection from end-user empowerment (anti-dumping laws, trademarking, and the money to afford teams of lawyers sending cease-and-desist letters come to mind).

This is what one reviewers said, this is freakin funny!!! :-D

"This is a very 1337 machine. I had to build a special desk with a liquid helium cooling pad on top. Without it, this machine would heat up and melt through the desk, and continue melting through the floor and ground until it reached the center of the planet. Then the reaction would cause the planet to explode, killing us all.

This thing is fast. Bad fast! I can see space and time warping, bending and "melting" around the vicinity of this machine when I run Microsoft Werd. Eventually a strange mini-black hole will open up and Steve Jobs` face will appear. He tells me lots of secrets about the future. When I last ran Excel, he told me the meaning of life and of our universe. Maybe the helium was simply leaking and toasting my brain..."
