Amazon is really trying to put to bed the issue of its censorship-like de-ranking of GLBT books that hit the social media headlines last weekend. They discovered THE problem was an error made by a French employee over the holiday weekend. Now, they want to get on with their life.
The revisionist historians are already calling the Twitter post and outrage as a work of a mob. Not the work of Internet friends or of a social network, but of an evil mob.
Except,… there are authors who have said that their GLBT-themed works were de-ranked months ago, not just last weekend when the supposed “error” was made.
I want to buy from Amazon, but I really want a more complete explanation that doesn’t have rough edges.
The best resource for more information I found this morning was Jon’s Blog .
