Aside

And one more …

Another news article about Amazon — this one boggled my mind.

Be aware that there is a word in this article that a great many people find offensive.

When I saw that Amazon was defending the use of the “C-word,” I thought they had to mean “cancer,” because they couldn’t possibly mean that “other” one. Turns out they did mean that other C-word. One wonders what goes through the minds of some marketers …

We could get into a long discussion of censorship, whether it’s right or wrong, and how much “official” (governmental) censorship is too much, but what completely baffles me is why Amazon would think this was a Good Idea.

It’s an odd coincidence that I should come across two more news pieces about Amazon right after writing about their acquisition of Goodreads.
