I don't know what the purpose of this thread is. I haven't seen any cogent Amazon responses to the various meritorious issues that have been raised. It seems that they have merely opted to send everyone into a black hole.

There is a poster who seems to have just been banned, as all of their posts were deleted.

I do not understand why. The People's Poet I have never seen be insulting or act in an abusive manner. Why was this customer banned, and how can any of us who participate in good faith in your forums have any faith that we will not be arbitrarily banned?

Posted on Jan 29, 2012 11:12:21 AM PST
Will Amazon ever tell us exactly *what* is cause for banning, so that we can actually avoid it?

It seems as if their modus operandi is "We have criteria for banning... but we won't tell you what they are, and, if you are banned, we won't tell you why."

In reply to an earlier post on Jan 29, 2012 11:19:19 AM PST
My question...looking back a few pages, I saw no signs of response from Amazon.

Do they even look at this anymore? Are we speaking to the ether? Are the gods of Amazon deserting us? ;-)

I think amazon needs to give psychological tests before people start posting. There are some messed up people that post in amazon forums.

PL

They've *never* responded to this or the feedback forum they produced. It's highly unlikely that you'd know there was such a thing, as finding it without knowing of its existence and URL is most improbable. People who posted there speculated it was a way of shutting up the complainers.

Allan: I HAVE told you many times, Michael, that SWMBO is not to be trifled with by such as you.

It is not for us to know Her mind.

You have to learn to cop it sweet, mate

PL - I emailed customer service and called the 800# when one of Anne's posts was deleted once. Someone else did also, then amazon reposted it and emailed the other person that they had done so. I never got a response from them, though. The other complainer was male, perhaps that's why he got an email. Not that I'm sensitive to gender issues, or anything like that...

I have only good things to say about Amazon. Their PDF method of publishing an eBook is great. And I had a wonderful tech walk me through each step of the Amazon Fulfillment program in order for them to sell my paperback.
I wonder if the attitude of the person corresponding with Amazon has anything to do with the cooperation that person gets. And what is a "pinhead?"

In reply to an earlier post on Jan 29, 2012 4:46:06 PM PST
I think I've been insulted, but I'll bite: what is a pinhead?

I consider the reposting of Anne's post within an hour with an accompanying apology a marvelous response from Amazon, whom I have loved since the month it went online and whose stock I own. I'm happy you had such a wonderful experience with the Fulfillment program. But I still regret not getting a personal response to my email and phone call, especially since I write such articulate and polite letters.

Tammy says:
So, a stock owner complained about a deleted post of a published best-selling author and the post was reinstated.

Not seeing any conflict of interest there!

And this observation was directed at the actions of amazon, B. Sinnott, not at you. Just wondering what it would take to get them to lift the ban on someone who does not affect them in a rather large financial way.

In reply to an earlier post on Jan 29, 2012 8:01:33 PM PST
This is an important question, as yet totally unanswered by the moderators.

In reply to an earlier post on Jan 30, 2012 2:37:23 AM PST
Tammy says:
It will remain unanswered, I'm sure. But then, that is an answer in itself.

In reply to an earlier post on Jan 30, 2012 3:37:07 PM PST
Tammy, I was responding to Sandra, who implied my attitude might have been off-putting.

LOL Like I'm sure Amazon checks every email to see if the sender is a stockholder. Author maybe; stockholder, not so much.

And for that, I see Amazon as much more important to the author than the author is to Amazon.

I too wish they would publish their criteria for deleting a post. On another forum we decided a computer program picked out certain words - "stupid" was one we tested

Amazon posts their terms of use:
They wrote...

What shouldn't I post?

Behave as if you were a guest at a friend's dinner party. Please treat the Amazon.com community with respect. Do not post:

Any personal information about children under 13
Descriptions that intrude on the privacy of another person, including revealing personally identifiable information such as their name or address
Text that promotes illegal or immoral conduct
Repeated posts that make the same point excessively

"inflammatory or spiteful comments"

AH - hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

In reply to an earlier post on Jan 30, 2012 4:00:01 PM PST
Yes, they post these terms... but several of them are exceedingly vague:

What constitues profane? obscene? infammatory? spiteful? abuse? denigration? threats?

How long is a brief quotation?

What is immoral conduct? What constitutes the promotion of illegal or immoral conduct?

What constitutes an excessively made point?

See the problem? It's all subjective... and when amazon censors a post, they tell no one, neither the person who was censored nor anyone else, exactly *what* term of use was violated.
