Amazon Asshattery  
I've sent my obligatory strongly-worded email to them already. Now for the Google-bombing aspect.

Amazon Rank

Don't let Amazon.com make moral judgments for you. Stand up and be counted.

They are claiming "glitch." LOL I've interpreted this to mean "Um...we really didn't think you'd be paying attention since we did this on Easter and all. We're really embarrassed that we got caught. In order to assuage you, we've fired 10 randomly-chosen middle managers and the sales rankings will be fixed tomo--er--now. Sorry. Now. Please continue buying books from us. We honestly didn't realize how much you people read."

So they are putting the sales rankings back and we'll be able to do a search again for these books?

I'm sure your 'interpretation' is SPOT ON! What fuck-nuts!

Not sure. Well, I'm sure that they'll have to put them back. The tubes are going wild over this. They've probably lost a buttload of sales already.

Idiots. This is not the economy in which to pull such fuckwaddery. LOL

*jots down 'fuckwaddery' for future use in asshatedness happenings*

That's a keeper. ;o)

I agree. Glitches don't affect a subset of sexuality-based search terms. Not without some serious intent.

Okay, so I am admitting up front my naive tendency to give everyone and their poodle the benefit of the doubt, even (and perhaps especially) when they don't deserve it, but...

Is there a really super-compelling reason for me not to? Because I'm under-informed on the issue, and I may have missed something, but I'd really like to believe it was a glitch. Because other than that one time when they didn't ship my Poke'mon Crystal game, Amazon has always served me well.
