When you give a thumbs down about a book review it doesn't tell that person who gave the thumbs down does it?  I was just looking at a book that had at least 5 dif reviews describing the book cover condition.  I gave them thumbs down.  I don't want to upset anyone but that's not what the reviews are for since there's probably 100 copies of this book in the system. It's a 20yr old book-obviously some covers are going to be different and show some useage.

No, it's anonymous and descriptions of book conditions are a good reason to give a thumbs down.  If enough people give a thumbs down, those reviews will eventually be removed from the system.

No, it does not, Mary. No problem with not wanting to start a feud, but you are safe, they can't see you rate them :)

Also, have you seen the topic in the Questions forum where you can post this and others will hit the reviews also? You can go thru theirs also, and this will push the unacceptable reviews further down this page, and leave reviews that are "about the book" not the condition of the book, at the top :)
