Follow us to Long Island for this absurdity, in which the good folks at Dethroner are offered a bribe by a sketchy mail-order digital camera retailer to alter a negative Amazon review. Evidence: "We are ready to issue you a credit for $75.00 back to your Amazon account (which is the original freight paid). Our only concern is that in the past we have made an accommodation for a customer but they have left us negative feedback anyway. If you would be willing to remove your negative feedback remark to our account (and then email me to let me know that it has been done) I will issue the credit right away." [Dethroner]
