Curiouser and Curiouser

As Alice said:

'Curiouser and curiouser!' cried Alice (she was so much surprised, that for the moment she quite forgot how to speak good English); 'now I'm opening out like the largest telescope that ever was! Good-bye, feet!'

I have examined the negative votes on one star ratings on Crawford and it gets curiouser and curiouser.

As of this AM there are 3 reviews with exactly 4 positive and 415 negative for a total of 419.  There is one with 4 of 420. There are 3 with 3 of 418. Close enough. Coincidence? Remember my writing on Groups vs Crowds. This is Group attack. It is too organized and exact.

This type of attack tells you two things. One is that the buyer should beware and always look at the bad reviews. The left wing technocrats only looked at what they saw as the "bad" parts of the negative reviews. There is no similar attack on the five star reviews.

The more I think of this the more I am convinced that the Internet Group think is potentially one of the most dangerous capabilities ever invented. The cost of starting a Group is small and the power it wields is great.
