I knew this would happen when Google came to the area looking for lab rats. And all our politicos and officials said. What is search? What is twitter? Social Media? What is that?

Amazon wants to know, among other things, about our "skilled workforce" and crime statistics. Guess we're out already.

Thank you! I can't believe how many people think this is a "great" idea. It's spam. Pure and simple. And he's boasting about it. Amazon already has a problem with shady reviews, and now he adds to it.

If I were Amazon, all I would see is a city that is not capable of good judgement when it comes to its customers.
