I personally took the time to do a review and it was deleted! I'm not
a happy Amazon customer right now!!! Why bother to take the time to write a review if it's only going to be deleted.

That's what I'm wondering. Hmmm...suspicious. I don't frequent Amazon enough to know how often they delete reviews, especially large amounts at one time.

Were reviews for any other books deleted around the same time? Is it possible that Amazon had some kind of technical glitch?

That's odd. Perhaps an email to the company is in order to find out if there's a reasonable explanation.

Normal is just a setting on your dryer.

Amazon will also take down reviews that are "personal in nature"--so if people posted anything personal about Jenny McCarthy that would taint the review. And by personal, I mean someone who is judging her for being a pin-up, etc and making rude comments about her instead of actually reviewing the book. It happens, especially with public figures.

It doesn't sound like that was what you wrote though, so that's pretty odd.

I got a reply from Amazon:

Greetings from Amazon.com.

Thank you for alerting us to the disappearance of reviews. Our
customer review database has been undergoing some minor
infrastructure modifications, and it is possible that your review is
linked with the changes.

We would appreciate it if you could provide us the ISBN or ASIN of
the item reviewed (the 10-digit number on the item's detail page).
This information will assist us in our research and will hopefully
help us recover reviews.

Please visit the following link to provide the information we
requested:

http://www.amazon.com/rsvp-mi?c=fvww...8664249&q=hcm2

Please be aware that customer reviews are typically only removed
from the Amazon.com website for two reasons. The first being if the
review was not within our posted guidelines. The second is at the
request of the customer who authored the review in question. Please
note, customers who submit reviews have the option to edit or delete
their own comments online at any time.

Due to our strict customer confidentiality and account security
policy any review removal will be discussed only with the person who
wrote the review. I hope you will understand the importance of our
security measures despite any disappointment this may cause.

Please take a look at our Review and Participation Guidelines for
information about acceptable review content:

Thank you for your interest in Amazon.com.

Most of the replies were positive for the book. Most of them were mixed with opinions of Jenny's story and her style of writing as well as people telling stories about their own children who recovered using the same methods that Jenny talks about in the book. Some were anti vax some supported alternative vax schedules and some didn't even mention vax.

I believe there were outside influences.
