Peta Schmeta-Check out this bullshit!

I'm sure I'm late to the party, but in case you haven't heard yet:

Amazon.com is pulling sales ranks for GLBT products, with the excuse that they're "adult content" and thus inappropriate to be listed on the best sellers pages.

Read all about it at hllangel's post HERE containing links to more information.

ETA-Relative to Barrowmania-this affects John's autobiography as far as the rankings for paperback edition on Amazon.UK although US is still showing rankings for both the paperback and hardcover, although hardcover is showing not available. (See comments for further discussion.)

I'm trying to figure out who the hell could have got to them and why and why it's happening NOW?

Obviously this already a major issue and being blogged and twitted about all over the place. I'm hoping by tomorrow Keith or more likely Rachel will be all up in their face about it and they'll have to back down. (Hey, Keith beat Wal-mart that one time. It could happen.)

Hubby has sent an email saying he will not be using their services until the policy is reversed, and that was hard because he buys a lot of stuff from them.

ETA-Update from hllangel. More information, links etc.
