|One of hundreds of books I've bought on Amazon|
We tweeted. We blogged. We called Amazon to complain. We emailed Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos. When many of us received similar responses from Amazon that they refused to stop selling the book because they did not believe in censorship, we began to alert mainstream media outlets and government officials. Mom bloggers did not take this lightly, at all. Many many bloggers removed their Amazon stores and affiliate links from their blogs.
I know of people who closed their accounts with Amazon today. I know people actually boxed up and returned Kindles and other recently purchased Christmas gifts. I was planning on buying a Kindle...not anymore. Annually I spend several hundred dollars on Christmas gifts at the site. Not anymore.
Amazon does not allow porn on their site, so they are already censoring. This is a really stupid business decision on their part. I'm done with them, AND the companies they own, including Diapers.com and Zappos. That's right, I'm giving up on shoe buying from the best online shoe retailer in existence. I hope you will stand with me for what's right in this case.
