Amazon - Stop culling our product reviews without justification!

0 have signed. Let’s get to 100!

As a seller on Amazon, reviews are the life-blood of our products and sales. However, Amazon has a habit of culling these reviews with extreme prejudice if their system (algorithms) flags any part as being "paid for", "manipulated" or "fake" and promptly removes them without explanation or notification. When inquired into the why, they simply point you to their Terms of Service for leaving reviews. This petition aims to force Amazon to reconsider their method(s) and guidelines of removing customer-left reviews so as to minimize the damage done to legitimate sellers and products (and reviews) while removing the obvious or actually potential 'fake reviews'.
