[b]Amazon.com employs the "review" system to stimulate interest via [i]controversy[/i].[/b] That is why spite reviews are not removed. They are controversial, and stimulate interest. Potential readers are only deceived by the star system, writers waste valuable time chasing reviews, the vicious have fun, newbies are disheartened, etc. IMO the entire review system should be junked.

It's odd that the American spelling is based on the
French spelling and not the British...

Oh that's right, Brits are the only ones we ever
really had to defend ourselves against and we were
allied with the French on that one.

Now it all makes sense.

Oh I see... that must be why the French love America as much as they do.

(Yeah coz the Americans have made a lot of friends killing millions of people around the world in defense of profits for the military industrial complex.)

Military Industrial Complex.

Is that like The Alan Parsons Project, or the Blue Man Group?

The French don't even like themselves.

Oh Ian, Ian, Ian. That term went out with the radicals in the 60's. Now it's the Monolythic Military Conglomerates or something just as rediculous. let's just do away with all of it so we can learn to speak Chinese. The French and British are curently honeing up on their farci language skills.

(So you think that will stir them up?)
(Oh yeah. That should do it nicely.)
(We could have said something about Liberals.)
(Nope, they've been listed as an endangered species. You can't attack them anymore.)
(Kinda like the spoted owl?)
Yes, but that was needed. They're delicious.)

I like the French. I like Americans. I like almost everyone.

But I hate Monolithic Military Conglomerates. That first album was a blatant rip-off of Ziggy Stardust-era David Bowie.

But the beat was outstanding. Although I do give the lyrics a 4. (Those daisy cutters do go off in a great rythm)
