Caslon10000 saidI dont understand the explanation! ....
What actually happened to all those book rankings?
I also found the explanation to be a confusing non-explanation. I still don't understand the actual mechanism by which this happened.
My own sense is that Amazon is covering its ass. Whether they were hacked, or made a corporate anti-gay decision, or let some rogue employee(s) impose their own personal values on the system, doesn't really concern me.
Amazon failed, period. They will continue to portray themselves in the best light, and nothing they say can be believed. So it is with all corporations.
