Amazon banning incentivized reviews

Published on Oct 4, 2016

Reports on many web sites say that Amazon is banning incentivized  reviews tied to free or discounted products.

I say this is not correct in this review.

Sorry the audio was not very good on this video. I had picked the wrong microphone.

I just uploaded a review to Amazon and it was approved.
So I think I am correct in my comments in this YouTube post.

Update: Lon Seidman on his YouTube site talks about this issue today:

I setup a bulletin board system called Howard's Notebook in 1982. People connected at 300 baud. Upgrades and new things were done until 1995 when the world wide web was invented. Howard's Notebook was then moved to the web and is still in operation. I been blogging since 1982! I had one of the first webcams online.
