Amazon IS removing all erotica from the sales rankings. It’s Official.

I haven’t had an official reply, but Mark Probst has, and this is what they said to him:

In consideration of our entire customer base, we exclude "adult" material from appearing in some searches and best seller lists. Since these lists are generated using sales ranks, adult materials must also be excluded from that feature.

Hence, if you have further questions, kindly write back to us.

REALLY, Amazon.  Can you explain why Charlie Cochrane’s Lessons series which has NO sex in it HAS been marked as adult and had its ratings removed and yet Millers ROSY CRUCIFIXION which has graphic sex on every page – or hasn’t?????

if all gay fiction is “adult” – what’s the point of having a gay romance bestseller list at all?

Is anyone organzing a petition?  If not, shall I do it?
