TKC MUST READ!!! DID SPAM PRODUCT REVIEWS FROM MAYOR SLY VIOLATE TERMS OF SERVICE??? TECHIES AND LOCALS REBUKE KANSAS CITY HQ2 GIMMICK!!!



As Kansas City Mayor Sly James transitions into a lame duck public official, his publicity stunts and public persona are quickly beginning to fade . . .

Because nobody in Kansas City is reporting it . . .

THE TECH COMMUNITY MOCKS MAYOR SLY JAMES AND HIS HOMESPUN PUBLICITY STUNT WHICH EXPLOITED THE BIG "FAKE REVIEW" PROBLEM CONFRONTING AMAZON!!!

Here's proof:

ZDNET: Kansas City mayor spams Amazon reviews in bid for headquarters

Money line . . .

"Nothing smells of desperation more than spamming Amazon with thousands of potentially "fake" reviews . . .

"Naturally, each review -- listed on its own domain as well as Amazon -- mentions Kansas City, and it's hard not to poke fun at this interesting tactic.

"Each product is going to charity, but you have to wonder whether the reviews would be considered "fake" or not, which breaks Amazon's terms of service.

"That's not to suggest the mayor hasn't enjoyed his dog biscuits, cat pans, or Disney's Frozen dress, but it doesn't necessarily help the problem of shady reviews on the website at all, nor does it set an example as reviews fly in thick and fast from one person in a very short space of time."

And then in news closer to home . . .



KANSAS CITY RESIDENTS GROW FRUSTRATED WITH MAYOR SLY'S DEVELOPMENT AGENDA DOMINATING CITY HALL WHILST NEIGHBORHOODS REMAIN NEGLECTED!!!

Here's the word from a KICK-ASS TKC READER that perfectly sums up a great deal of local sentiment . . .

"Instead of trying to lure amazon here with silly gimmicks, the mayor of Kansas City should be trying to put our house in order, stopping the killings, stopping the water main breaks, and stopping businesses from fleeing west on the Santa Fe trail! It's time for real leadership.

"This city needs to wake up, listen to the people it serves, and stop trying to be the best dressed guest at a society wedding it has no business attending."

All things considered, Kansas City Mayor Sly has been an enthusiastic salesman for this town but his latest effort relied on a PR gimmick that has been universally rejected.

You decide . . .

Great job Sly!

Silicon Valley is calling Kansas City desperate.

And it's obviously Jon Stevens still does all his shopping at the Banana Republic discount rack, not online like everyone else.

Watch the city offer multi-million dollar incentives to a multi-billion dollar company passively engaged in destroying local business.

It doesn't matter. Amazon is not coming here, nor should we want them to.

Remember when they were saying KC has a secret plan to bring Amazon here?

Haha what a silly plan

the mayor needs to get airport plan passed before trying to get amazon.
the airport is doomed anyway so i guess it makes no diffrent anyway

Dotte got the yuuuuge Amazon shipping center, so Jax wants in on some needed jobs creation, too. But, giving too much to get a net gain in tax recoups in maybe a couple decades is too risky and an unfair advantage to Amazon not sharing in that risk. I bet Denver gets the HQ2. WallyWorld is pushing "Made In USA", and that may boost their online biz bigly. So, beware, Big Billions Bezos.

Instead of dwelling on the streetcar, Jack the Ripper and harassing the mayor, Tony ought to be dwelling on the real issue here.

Negroes.

I was rather astonished at the Mayor's theatrics. It reminded me of the way KC government and politicians run the city.

Oh yeah it had that same Monkey tryin' to fuck a football on main street look.

Same as it ever was....Same as it ever was.

Twowonoh: Indian Spirit Guide with tear running down his cheek at the stupidity of the voters who will approve a Single Terminal without a real clue of the cost or design.

Just so long as no KC Taxpayer's money was spend on this dumb assed stunt!

Are we going to hire "Babysitters-For-Adults-R-Us" to keep Slick under control the way the Country has had to do for a certain unnamed "Idiot In Chief"?

The mayor is now being defined by fixes and gimmicks. The pitch picking him as hero was a commentary on their cluelessness
