Idiot, or Comedian? You decide.

Writing about web page http://www.amazon.com/review/R1PPJ35WY17216/ref=cm_cr_rdp_perm

A review on Amazon.com that is either stupid or a joke. I'll let you make up your own mind, although I think the fact that he still gave it 2 stars is good evidence for "Joke"...

I found it through another Flickr photo, and decided to do a version that was cropped tighter.

Idiot, or Comedian? You decide.

    It has to be a joke. They gave it two stars out of five even though it supposedly caused them to throw away their computer.
    I find it worrying that 90 people claim to have found the review helpful.

  2. It has to be a joke. They gave it two stars out of five even though it supposedly caused them to throw away their computer.

    That’s what I thought, too. Although they could equally be an idiot, as seriously 2-starring a product that killed your computer would be stupid. But I’m sticking with “Joke”, because I want to retain some faith in humanity…

    Yes. I wonder if they’re treating the “helpful” system as a way of marking comments they like, because they found it funny.
