Amazon Really Want To Know Why I’m Cancelling?

I was cancelling an order at Amazon and they asked me to tell them why, so I started to tell them why in the nice big box they gave me, and then…

found that they were only giving me ten characters (set with “maxlength=10” in the source code) to tell them!

Doesn’t leave much to do apart from swear at them! Certainly no space for the treatise on international trade and the digital economy that I had in mind. I’d rather they didn’t ask at all.

    Here’s my go:


    and then let them figure it out!
