Up the Amazon Without a Paddle?

It's the little things.

I was reading a review on Amazon.com. At the bottom was the question "Was this review helpful?" beside two buttons marked "yes" and "no". I clicked the "no" button. A new page loaded, where I was asked to "sign in" (which really meant "give us your email").

I clicked the back arrow in my browser. The original page loaded, hesitated, and then the "sign in" page appeared again.

I clicked back a second time. Again, I saw a glimpse of the page I wanted before the "sign in" page reloaded.

Amazon wasn't going to let me go any further until I gave them my email address.

So I closed the tab and went elsewhere.

And just for spite blocked Amazon's cookies.
