So this theory is pure paranoia. There seems to be a lot of that going around on the net.
But I still think its totally within Amazon's rights to remove reviews from from irate fanboys with an agenda. Commenting is not a right. Its a privilege. And on a site like Amazon that privilege can be taken away if its abused with no warning or explanation. 2000 plus 1 star reviews before the blu-ray was even released (today)? Fanboys please.
If people have a problem take it up with the publisher. If people REALLY want to send the message, don't buy the thing. Like they say, money talks, BS walks.
I thought this might deserve a quick mention. The LOTR Blue-Ray set is now on sell and I thought I might pick it up. I was suprised at the storm of comments on Amazon, and the possible removal of negitive posts.
