More on Amazon

 Amid the various Amazonfail theories/explanations flying about the web today, few are entirely consistent with all the known facts. However, despite the claims of fame-hungry trolls, such evidence as I've seen suggests that the cock-up (if that's the phrase) came from inside Amazon rather than through any manipulation of the tags (or whatever) submitted by customers. This is the most compelling explanation I've seen so far, and it does suggest that someone in Amazon decided that anything marked by publishers as having Gay or Lesbian interest ought to be put on the top shelf of the cupboard in the back room of the store, with a sign reading "Beware of the Leopard."
