If you haven’t already heard, Amazon decided to de-rank thousands of books they deemed “adult”, except most of the books thus labeled are about homosexuality and do not have adult themes at all!  De-ranking means these books do not show up on the first (or second or third…) page of search results – even if you search for the exact title! – as well as not showing up on bestselling lists.

I don’t have the time nor the concentration currently to do a full post/commentary about this, so I’ll just give you a lovely list of links to other people commenting about this issue:

    You’re welcome. I wish I had more time to fully articulate my feelings on this one, but “thoroughly disgusted” sums it up pretty well.
