What in the hell were they thinking? In his blog post, Amazon Follies, Mark Probst explains how he learned about Amazon.com's recent move that restricts information about "adult" literature, which seems to include all gay-themed literature, although the precise policy isn't clear to me--if it is to them. One practical outcome is that salses rankings for affected books are no longer available, which will mean that those books may not show up in certain searches or best seller lists. This is serious for the authors.
I recommend that readers explore this situation and if it concerns you as it does me, consider altering your relationship with Amazon.
Here's a partial list of affected titles.
One thing you might consider doing is signing this petition, as I have done. Another is to contact Amazon directly at: firstname.lastname@example.org
