Let me assure you that Amazon.com does not support or promote hatred or criminal acts; we do support the right of every individual to make their own purchasing decisions,"
And if some of you missed this news and failed to see the kind of privilege/freedom it offered to it’s valuable customers,
It was the following electronic book,
"The Pedophile's Guide to Love and Pleasure: a Child-lover's Code of Conduct," by Philip R. Greaves II, went on sale on Oct. 28 and cost $4.79 to download.But sane customers were quick to lodge their protest:
The book quickly sparked a massive protest online, with thousands of Twitter users and Amazon customers calling for Amazon to remove the book, and some threatening to boycott the company altogether until it did.
Even if Amazon.com was not forthright in its intention, the author was, since he did not mince his words:
"I can see where they would come to that kind of conclusion and to a certain extent I wanted that kind of notoriety to affect the book. ... I wanted it to effect sales," he said.
But I am glad that this world still is still sane since only one book was sold.
Not sure if those aspiring pedophiles were scared to download fearing watchful eyes, but it seems before Amazon pulled the book, it apparently shot to #96 on Amazon's Top 100 list.
And now Amazon.com has chosen to block wikileaks and most of it's sites are under attack by hackers.
