I'd like to put forth a question as mentioned above.
Though it looked small and nobody's business, I reckon that it ultimately affects each and every one, including Amazon itself.
So I decided to bring it up. Please express your candid opinions.
The more voices heard, the better ideas and adjustments be available in the future.
Accused: Kevis Hendrickson (Author of The Legend of Witch Bane)
Charge: Violation of Terms and Conditions
Mr. Kevis Hendrickson was allegedly accused of spamming while promoting his book in discussion forums.
In response to the alleged violation, Amazon had deleted all of his past postings (regardless of relevance pertaining to the charge)
and revoked his posting privilege permanently. Currently he is no longer able to join any discussion.
It is noted that some postings of Amazon are regrettably abusive, profane, vulgar or purposefully hurtful and sometimes pure slander,
which remains every corner of Amazon, uncensored and untouched, which makes customers frown, yet an individual (an author, a reviewer of nearly 50 reviews, and a contributor to whom many customers gave credit of being helpful)
was singled out and banished from a domain, to which public are expected to access. Given that Amazon is the host, however, I was surprised,
and couldn't help since but keep wondering if there could have been a better way of dealing than current measure by Amazon.
This is a summary of the said matter. I'd like to gather your thoughts and opinions.
And I encourage you to visit other communities as well to take a look at what others had to say about this.
I wish our discussion help better and freer atmosphere in customer discussions as well as future action of Amazon be more constructive.
