In the meantime, I'll throw in my two cents on this Amazon/kid toucher book episode that made its way around the Twitterverse/Blogoverse the other day. No...an Amazon didn't touch a kid. That would be silly.
I have no problem with Amazon refusing to sell the book. In my brain, I don't think that's how censorship works. Lots of different stores refuse or refrain from selling lots of different things for lots of different reasons. Just because the book that this guy wrote and self-published didn't have technically anything illegal in it, doesn't make it okay.
I also have no problem with people pleading with Amazon to pull the book from their store. Amazon doesn't have to listen to them. Nor do they need to be intimidated by a mob threatening to boycott them. It happens. But people certainly have the right to speak their minds. Even the author of the book in question. Doesn't mean that someone else is obligated to sell it. Or not sell it. Ya know?
And finally, I also have no problem with someone taking the author of this piece of trash out with heavy ballistic weaponry. The guy says he has no experience with this type of relationship either as a child or an adult. That he was merely projecting when writing about it. Yeah...right. Doesn't matter to me. That kind of evil demands heavy ballistic weaponry. And I don't care what the Constitution has to say about it. Bllppttt!
