I've just reviewed an e-book which is a blatant ripoff. 50 reviews, all within 2-3 weeks of publication. All 5 stars, often with exact same contents*.
(seems to be an ongoing thing with Amazon, I dearly wished they copied Yelp and removed astroturf reviews).
The only 2 critical reviews are mine and someone else. Who had a name before, but now shows up as 'Amazon Customer'.
I don't mind if the author flags my review with Amazon for abuse (there isn't any) but I would rather not have the author go to town thrashing my other reviews. It has happened before to others when the authors game Amazon. It also happened to me, a long time ago - plain bad book, not an Amazon shill operation.
So, I'd love to change this review to 'Amazon Customer' too. How do I do it? I want to leave my other reviews alone, not anonymize my username everywhere.
- you can easily use 'search within reviews' to quickly spot the shills. Just pick a relevant keyword.
