I received this post at a discount in return for an unbiased review

Amazon has banned 'incentivized reviews' which were provided in exchange for receiving products for free or at a discount. An update to the customer review policy was posted which says that the banned reviews "make up only a tiny fraction of the tens of millions of reviews on Amazon" while independent analysis has shown that incentivized reviewers are much more likely to write positive reviews. This policy change does not apply to Amazon Vine which is a similar review program run by Amazon itself.

Another great amazon review hack

Another great amazon review hack is up, arguing about the character of "Indiana" in its state law books. It's not the first time (the story of ping and reviews of a CD rack come to mind), but for me, writing like this never gets old.
