Amazon Blocks Comment Section on “Rings of Power” After Bad Reviews

Objectivity 3.5 | Credibility 4.6 | Relevance 4.1

Amazon Prime Video set a three day delay for all user reviews shared on the platform allowing only the comments approved by the company.  “Amazon’s new initiative to review its reviews is designed to weed out ones that are posted in bad faith, deadening their impact,” Variety published.  The company claims this was done to determine if comments are genuine or from “bots,” however, some may view the restriction as a way to filter out bad reviews or negative comments about the new series.
