Private: Follow-up to last post

Ron at Beatrice debunks the claims made about Dave Eggers in the Toronto Star article that announced Amazon’s intentions to remove self-praising book reviews:

It seems pretty obvious from reading the actual “customer review” in question that it isn’t Eggers trying to be cute “in an attempt to save face,” but somebody having a go at him. Which would explain why there’s no confirmation in the article from Eggers that he wrote the “review.” In fact, the whole thing looks like incredibly sloppy work from the reporter in question. For a much better take on the story, read the National Post.
