Kev, is there any point in anyone telling you anything, as you seem to disbelieve everything they might say? Strange that you come out with all this stuff about yourself yet no one has said they don't believe you.

I just find it weird that someone would be like that. The 'I'm 100% honest but you aren't', type thing.

He did answer on this very thread. If you scroll back through the posts you will read his answer.

Mr Pen says:

NO I am not.... If Amazon invited me to join Vine would I do so? Yes I would.

How I might know is irrelevant. It will make no difference to you whatsoever. It won't change your life. All you'd do is say "Oh" to yourself. Nothing evasive about that answer, and no one is 'bending answers' about Vine questions. They've been answered and if you and Private Investigator Kev think there is, that's perfectly okay.

Vine isn't a secret society; merely a way of suppliers to get their products viewed. Everyone can read about it right here. Nothing untoward about that system and no different to the way newspapers, magazines, etc. get their review samples.

Sorry, never saw your answer on this darned phone. I don't believe you. Possibly not in the name Pen but I'd be prepared to put money on it you are under another guise. I may be wrong but you are simply too involved here to be anything else.

You can go on about it as much as you like, I've answered it.

I can also ask questions, such as "You're not in it, so why do you care about Vine?"

You don't need to have access to anything; just to be in Vine to know.

You asked me that a while ago, and I answered that no I wasn't.

Two other answers; no I don't (which again, I already answered when you asked previously. I am giving allowances for your advanced years, but do keep up.) and no it isn't.

So, do you have any more technical nuggets you want to entertain us with?

In reply to an earlier post on 11 Jul 2015 19:51:01 BDT
It went on for months and months, and it required action from other people to get Amazon to do anything about it. If they had been true to their word, it would have ended a lot quicker. You know this.

QB doesn't need access to the Vine database. He already gave you examples of Vine accounts with very low rankings. You just chose to consider them anomalies.

No it isn't! Amazon don't do what they say they do. You know that already. You deleted your account because of it!

Yes it does. The reason I ask is because I had exactly the same problem, and when I pointed out to Amazon that it was against their own posting guidelines* they still didn't act. Basically, what Amazon have in writing on their website, and what they actually do, are two different things.

You know this, from your experience with your stalker, and I know this from mine. So why are you so insistent that when Amazon say that Vine membership is dependent on your ranking, they practice what they preach, when actual evidence (low ranking vine reviewers etc) would suggest otherwise?

* Specifically these:
Repeated posts that make the same point excessively
Repeated unwelcome messages that harass or embarrass other customers or participants

You have no idea what you are talking about when it comes to technology. None whatsoever. You are completely clueless. You couldn't harvest a chest hair.

This isn't me acting tough, this is me telling you that you are talking complete crap. You clearly have no idea what a MAC address is. You can barely grasp the concepts of an IP address, and where it is and isn't visible. In short, you are just making yourself look even sillier than you were previously, which is no mean feat.

BM, you still haven't answered my question to you with regards to the nature of your stalking on Amazon.

I think it would be more likely if manufacturers complained about a particular reviewer, Amazon certainly don't supress poor reviews but they may take notice of a manufacturers complaint.

I refer you to the reply given above.

Vine has its own set of rules too, which they don't adhere to either.

My reply won't be any different how ever many times you ask.

It's random. If it wasn't everyone in the top 500 would be in Vine.
People are not removed from Vine because their ranking drops. If they were, no-one outside a certain ranking would be in Vine

As neither happens, whatever Amazon put, they don't adhere to their own rules, as has been shown.
