Dear Amazon

You appear to have your head in the sand and are wantonly allowing those purveyors of over-priced games, thegamecenter.co.uk, to advertise freely on your forums. They've just spammed the Cheap Games thread, the Footy thread and the Trade-In thread.

As has been proven previously, they offer uncompetitive prices and have a blatant disregard for the truth.

Please feel free to delete this thread as you see fit. I'll only repost it.

Why a 'successful' business sees fit to spam forums for business is mind-boggling. All it's doing is alienating future customers.

And why Amazon keep allowing these simpletons to keep posting shows the blatant disregard you currently hold the community in.

Anyone else feel like invading their new forum and advertising amazon prices??
I mean fair's fair and all? :P

Edit: Had a quick look at their forum and i'll say this, it actually has a Chatroom so you can talk to the moderators!!
Amazon take note if you please. ;)

No worries there, you can post as unregistered. You don't need to have an account with them!! :D
Bad move on their part, with the amount of trolls on the net.
But I like their use of a chatroom, so you can acually have dialogue with the mods.

Robson, loving your work Dude!!! :D
I left them a nice note on their news thread. :P

Well I have registered (I have nothing to hide...or steal..) and made a post on every thread...I am the only person posting there other than admin which may lessen the effect somewhat..power to the people!!!

I am struggling to get my posts on this site. Have had a few deleted of late so may be on the verge of a ban. It would render me suicidal if this happened...

My posts from last night (saying Shop at Amazon) are still on the Game Center site - I do feel bad because starting a forum is something I would support normally I just object to them treating our community with disdain - if they don't do it for me I will delete my posts later...

Have you seen their response to you Robson? they claim its a set up and someone is posting on here under their name and Amazon are refusing to ban the person!

What is the truth I demand to know, I can handle it !

The Gamecenter, it's apparently the home of hardcore gaming.

Really?

its the home of hardcore gayming??

"Have you seen their response to you Robson?"

Just seen this a moment ago - they e-mailed me too. Interesting response to say the least however in fairness to the forum mod he has not deleted my post completely but has moved it to a complaints thread and responded and apologised (as well as claiming the spammer here has nothing to do with them). Considering they could just have deleted me altogether it does perhaps make me wonder if the spammer here is an overenthusiastic mate of theirs or something?

I had a similar response when I e-mailed them to give them some constructive feedback on how they conducted themselves on this forum. I bought Sniper Elite from them and laid down a challenge of throwing in the pre-order bonus for a sale and they did it and the customer service was really good. I'm giving them the benefit of the doubt.

If anyone disclosed that they were a reg on this forum the least they could do is offer some sort of deduction given the way they conducted themselves on here...

Saying that, it just sounds like you've been sucked in...

I was very open about who I was and where I was from - but no discount! tbh I would not buy from them with or without discount and don't really believe they had no hand in the spamming (why the frig would a random stranger pick that website to "promote") - but at the same time if they now stop I won't be petty and spam their website - which is what I did to prompt thier response.

Does anyone remember a band called the Charlatans?

They were crap.
