When perusing the sewing machine reviews this morning, I noticed that the Online Retailers field displays amazon.com consistently for all machines, even machines that are not sold online (such as Babylock machines).

I noticed that too. When I posted a review about my serger, I made a point to say where I bought it in the body of the review.

Yes, that feature has been there awhile and is pretty annoying, and very commercial and pretty crass to see it there all the time. It would be nice NOT to have any info on retailers there at all, and only the person's inclusion of where they purchased their machine if they care to mention it.

I've seen this on other sites and found out that site owners often get a kickback when someone purchases something from Amazon through the link. That might be what's going on here, too.

I notice sometimes it says Allbrands even when an older vintage sm is not available there. It is distracting too.
