Amazon Customer Answers Are Ridiculous

A while back I ordered some latex party balloons on Amazon. Putting them in my mouth to blow up, they tasted TERRIBLE. I couldn’t give them to a kid to blow up! I returned them. I used the Amazon “Customer questions & answers” system to ask some other vendors, “How do they taste when blowing up? Some balloons I’ve gotten taste really bad.” Here’s what I got back.

WTF Amazon?

I asked the same question about 20 similar balloon products. The above was absolutely typical.

There is no useful way to mark an answered question “beyond useless”. Why is this the case?

Megan bought some balloons at Target. They were fine. Feh.
