I was looking at a item on Amazon which, I was informed, had 6 customer
However, when I tried to read these six reviews Amazon would only show
me one single review & nothing I could think of would reveal the rest.
With so few reviews this was immediately apparent, but if an item had,
say 458 reviews I'm pretty sure I would never notice that some, a few,
or many, of them were being hidden.

chart claimed that 13% of all reviews gave it a 2 star ratings, no 2
star reviews were available when I looked for them - hence it isn't just
a single gremlin effecting a single product.

claim "x" reviews but hide many of them from the punters?
Any idea if this is some kind of glitch resulting from them culling
P.S. The item I started out on was
