News: Amazon’s recent policy change?

Amazon has got to be joking. Please tell me this is some kind of dream. Otherwise, well, I’m not really sure what to think.

See this open letter to Amazon for further information. Brief excerpt below.

This loss of ranking, listing, search functionality seems to be largely, but not wholly!, limited to fiction and non-fiction with themes relating to gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender issues. Authors affected range from E.M. Forster to James Baldwin to John Barrowman, our beloved Captain Jack on Dr. Who and Torchwood and others, including a host of female authors who write erotic fiction.

Update: Amazon spokesperson states this was not a policy change, but rather a glitch in the system. Link: http://www.publishersweekly.com/article/CA6651080.html
