kshandra: a stack of hardback books, spines facing away (Books)
As of this writing, all but one of the books I used in this example have had their ranks restored. OTOH, an all-departments search on "homosexuality" is still returning the same anti-gay results I got last night, so there's a way to go yet.

In comments on a post putting forward a trolling theory that I don't quite buy, [livejournal.com profile] eldestmuse says something that I think is important to keep in mind, here:

Even if they aren't deliberately targeting the LGBT audience, the fact remains that the philosophy behind putting the feature to remove the sales ranks of bestselling authors, thus hurting their livelihood based on morality instead of popularity, based on being "adult" is fundamentally objectionable.

A list of affected titles is being kept here; a link round-up is here; and a petition is up here (and despite my personal feelings re: online petitions, I will be signing).

Please, forward, Tweet with the #amazonfail hashtag - get the word out early and often. This is unacceptable.
