Amazon Deceptions

Be careful of Amazon “reviews”. Amazon is clearly censoring real experiences from customers.

I recently purchased a gallon sized can of Tuff-Bond construction glue from an Amazon seller. This is what I received in the UPS shipment:

Obviously, the can was crushed during shipment and the lid popped off. The contents was ruined, already partially dried out. This is “instant adhesive” which is designed to work almost immediately and is used for hanging insulation spikes.

I notified Amazon of the problem and did receive a refund, but when I attempted to post my review, Amazon refused to allow this to see the light of day:

Poorly packaged, arrived heavily damaged, lid off, glue everywhere. This glue arrived improperly packaged (no packing materials at all), can lid was off, can was dented and damaged, with a lot of glue spilled out. The contents are now ruined and completely unusable.

Amazon refused to allow this review to be posted, ostentatiously this “violated their guidelines”.

Now you know why Jeff Bozos is so rich. Millions of customers are being fooled into thinking Amazon reviews are legitimate, but in fact, Amazon doesn’t allow real world reviews.

I’ve closed my Amazon “account”, which means this is the only way to say “fuck you” to Amazon at this time.

    I think Amazon is trying to cover it butt! Workers at Amazon warehouses across the nation have long complained about grueling working conditions. They say they have too few bathroom breaks, which are all timed, excessive productivity goals, and an unsafe working environment. I also wonder if Amazon is worried about their own liability with suppliers shipping out hazardous products and not packaging them accordingly with  the domestic shipping prohibitions & restrictions to get by on the cheap. Isn’t that type glue explosive under the right conditions? From the pics it doesn’t look like it was even packaged right.

      Amazon’s corruption is well-documented. It’s “ok” until it happens to you. Vote with your money (stop buying Amazon).

      No, it wasn’t packaged right at all (no packaging at all, somebody just tossed this into a box). I did attempt to put the lid back on, but the can was now oval in shape and this could not be done.

        Yeah, that looks like a flimsy cardboard box and undersized at that! Getting by on the cheap!

    Your Amazon experience is indicative of the collapse of society that has been underway for quite a while.

    People in the lower ranks of businesses are expected to do more work for the same pay, and all the fat has been cut out to the point of there being nobody to cover when someone is away ill (or has died).

    Here in NZ the latest headlines concern burn-out of nurses, expected to carry the ever-increasing load that has resulted from decades of underfunding of health services, and just today, ambulance staff talking about burn-out due to understaffing and inadequate resources….and an ever-increasing workload.

    So many chickens coming home to roost.

    By the way, it makes little difference whether Putin is an evil bastard or a popular hero; Russia is fully committed to extracting fossil fuels and burning them or selling them to some other nation to burn -even as Northern Siberia begins to experience some of the more dire effects of Planetary Overheating. – such as methane erupting from craters in the permafrost.

    People tend to go mad in herds, and recover their senses one at a time -Mackay, 1841.
