Amazon.com, Derek Draper and, erm, user feedback…

19 04 2009

The internet is a genuinely democratic environment. Anyone with a computer and an ISP has a voice. And Derek Draper, as a political animal and huge fan of web-based communications, will no doubt appreciate user feedback as democracy in action.

Derek is a practising psychotherapist and a published author. So, interested as I am in finding out more about books and the writings of the pyschotherapist Derek Draper I checked out this Amazon page. And I scrolled down to the ‘Tags Customers Associate with this Product’…

Well, there are 80 tags here describing Derek Draper and his work. Apparently customers associate tags like ‘fake qualifications’ all the way down to ‘sleazey weazel’ when considering the work of Derek Draper. And in between there some other tags like ‘in berkeley not at berkeley’, and altogether saltier adjectives like ‘oxygen thief’ and ‘onanist’.

The Amazon book reviewer is clearly a very difficult critic to please. I mean surely ‘pulp it’, ‘utter drivel‘, ‘faeces’ and ‘vomit inducing’ are harsh, but then we must respect consumer sovereignty on this one. And I’m quite sure that Derek, as a political animal and huge fan of web-based communications, will also respect this example of democracy in action.

Life Support by Derek Draper retails at £8.99.

PS. Hat-tip tigerrouge for the spot.
