**********************************************************

After a world-wide assault by the users of both Twitter & Facebook, Amazon has come to their senses, somewhat late, but at least now, and withdrawn the self-published electronic book The Paedophile’s Guide to Love & Pleasure…written by Philip Greaves, a former nurse’s aide.

(I cannot imagne why anyone would write such a book)

Amazon has declined to elaborate on what checks it runs on such materials, although guidelines on its website forbid “pornography and hardcore material that depicts graphic sexual acts” and state that the company reserves the right to determine “the appropriateness of titles sold on our sites”.

It is to be hoped that Amazon will review their policy and tighten it. Or narrow it. Take your pick.

Congratulations to everyone who contributed to the success of this unofficial campaign.

Not matter what nation we are in, when we, the people speak…we can have incredible power.

    I really hope Amazon will never let anything like this ever happen again. It’s shocking. Freedom of speech is one thing but it can be like a double edge sword, if not use wisely it will hurt others or our own self.

    Unfortunately they have no plans to change their policies. They stated multiple times that they would not censor books because some may find the content “objectionable” I am glad we were able to get them to remove it but as a mother and a survivor I am never going to buy from them or their subsidiaries again.
