    For some reason I am not certain a pair of shoes is always sufficient. Why does the Amazong discriminate against the differently enleggened?

    I am actually glad Amazon doesn’t deal with the weird, dumb, and crazy reviews. They’re entertaining and often negative reviews are just as useful in determining whether to buy something. For example, when I was looking to buy a barn light (meant to be installed) the numerous bad reviews complaining that it did not have a plug on the end of the wire confirmed for me that Amazon’s description, saying exactly that, was accurate.
