Me: Just going forward?
CS: No, we'll also be identifying other content and moving it into the erotica categories.
Me: How will you be identifying this content?
CS: I can't tell you that.
Me: How can we get our books out of erotica?
CS: You can change the content and resubmit it.
Me: How would we know what to change?
MEN ARE SO HARD - THEY'RE THROBBING! AND THEY'RE GOING DEEP INTO THEIR FORBIDDEN TWINK PARTNERS! THIS IS A HIGHLY EXPLICIT BOX SET - A HUGE VALUE WITH HUGE GUYS! DON'T MISS OUT!
Look, I have no problem with Amazon deciding what is or isn't "erotica" in their store - if they do so with some consistency and transparency. But as it stands, their slash-and-burn tactics (and I seem to have to write at least one of those pornocalypse posts a year) when it comes to erotica, instead of developing a real solution to the "erotica problem," only creates more of a mess. Like Smashwords or other retailers, they could solve this problem by allowing customers to decide whether or not they wanted to see "adult" material. It's as simple as installing a button or toggle switch. But that would mean Amazon would have to admit to selling erotica! *gasp*
