They stole borrowed one line from a review I wrote and posted it as an editorial review! At least they mentioned javaranch!!!

At least they mentioned javaranch without the courtesy of a link, though. Sigh.

Found another one:

The Brits seem to like JavaRanch.

I have my suspicions that this is probably a result of our submitting pages to Google working effectively. The Amazon.co.uk team must search for reviews of the book on other sites and include comments from them in their review!!
And of course brits like Javaranch

Here's a blip from my review on
Amazon.com
And another on Barnes and Noble
.... they mentions that it came from JavaRanch, but not that it came from me

I found mine here. I like how they clipped the review to sound more like I told everyone to but the book.
Amazon in the UK

I submitted my full review to amazon.co.uk for the books that I found where they took a quote from my review.

Maybe we should ask them to
1) Call it JavaRanch.com (so folks know how to find it)
2) Make it a link to the review (which they probably won't do, but #1 is good enough)
