More on Amazon Fail

The Amazon Rank fiasco has so far sparked the fastest torches-and-pitchforks reaction I've ever actually seen LJers muster (with the disclaimer that we didn't hear about this until this morning). Go us. *thumbs up*

Dear Amazon: even for a corporation for your size, it's a special kind of stupid when you tell one customer it's a glitch and another that it's part of a new Adult policy.

Amazon.com's current top search results for "homosexuality":

1. A Parent's Guide to Preventing Homosexuality by Joseph Nicolosi and Linda Ames Nicolosi

2. You Don't Have to Be Gay: Hope and Freedom for Males Struggling With Homosexuality or for Those Who Know of Someone Who Is by Jeff Konrad

Amazon.ca's current top search results for "homosexuality":

1. Someday This Pain Will Be Useful To You by Peter Cameron

2. The Gay Man's Kama Sutra by Terry Sanderson

I'm not sure what this means just now, just that it makes me feel slightly less Rage-Murder-Kill for the time being and I'm gonna hang onto that for a while.

For those of you who haven't yet communicated your outrage, artemisiabrisol has compiled a handy-dandy list of customer service numbers for your easy access. When we went looking for the contact number this morning it took us ten minutes and a login to find. o.O

Here, have a disapproving proto-Librarian. Channel her in your telephone calls. (I admit, I link this mainly because it makes me giggle. Also because I am not yet officially in Library Fu Training and do not have a Disapproving Librarian picture of my own.)

In less interesting IRL news, Easter Zombie Jesus dinner was delicious and filling, and Mum's first attempt at making trifle was voted a success. We only got a little wet hunting for chocolate, but as my sisters and I explained to the Albertans, Easter egg hunting in BC is an endurance activity. You have to prove you really deserve it. :)

Finally, I'm still getting "Cannot Contact Server" when I try and post via client. It's not my firewall, I'm pretty sure it's not a proxy problem, and LJ seems to be up and running... WTF?
