OH MY GOD! I am so amazed at reading "answers" to questions about products posted in on-line stores. In particular, Amazon.
Questionoes this fit a...?
Answer posted by moron: I don't know, I don't have that model...
Really??? Why did your stupid moron ass even bother to respond? If you know nothing, say nothing!
Why do they do that? Why do they bother? Why?
That, and one word reviews like, “good”. Why even waste the time?

I think some people get that email from Amazon and feel like they're either obligated to answer, or that somehow the question was being asked of them directly so they again, are obligated to answer...
It is definitely irritating at times.
The first 100 people to make it out alive...get to live.
The twin to that behavior are those reviewers who leave a one star review because the shipping was delayed or left on the porch in the rain, etc.
Hey, jackass, that has nothing to do with the item, and only serves to skew the review for the rest of us.

But some if them are pure gold.
I had no clue that when I was asked a question my answer would be published, until I found my own answer.
It was something along the lines of will this fit a 229. I answered, sorry can't help you I use it for a M11-A1 and it works great. Might have mentioned rail being a problem.
I had probably answered ten different questions up until that point on various things "sorry can't answer that" , "haven't tried it out yet", "not using it for that purpose". Etc.
Until then I assumed it was one individual asking another a question and thought it rude to not even respond "sorry bro, can't help you."

Yeah that is irritating, but I often wonder why there are not more negative remarks. It makes me wonder if the company that makes the product is posting bogus positive reviews. I have found myself enjoying many of the book reviews for pure entertainment. There are some talented people out there who could be comedy writers.

Read some of the reviews for Foreigner's first album and how people complain the music went out of style in the 90s.
Sentiment without action is the ruin of the soul.
Help, I'm having premonitions of future flashbacks.

Question about camera equipment are really interesting. So we go to the section for Nikon DSLR lenses which are carefully spelled out; fits full frame Nikon D series etc., and so forth.
First question; will be; will this fit my D4?, second will be will this fit my D4?, and third will this work on my Canon model whatever?, and on from there.
You would think that someone considering the purchase of a $2000+ item would have some glimmering.
Another general question I like is: "does this come with batteries"? This is especially germane when we are talking about 2ea. AA batteries powering a $800 device.
Oh. My. God...
I have seen the face of....
<sigh> never mind...
I particularly love the reviewers who kvetch on and on about how they "don't like the color" when whatever it is only comes in black, etc. Nothing at all about the performance or practical aspects... You know... morons.
