Amazon Pulls Book

Due to public outrage, has pulled the e-book entitled The Pedophile's Guide to Love and Pleasure authored by Phillip Greaves of Pueblo, Colo. The content led to hundreds of tweets and a Facebook page was created calling for a boycott of Amazon, who has sold other questionable material in the past. Amazon responded by saying they, "believe it is censorship not to sell certain books simply because we or others believe their message is objectionable," but eventually, they pulled the book.[]

As a frequent customer of, I'd say this isn't censorship, but rather wisdom.

Amazon a herald of freedom of speech? If they were, then why pull the book now? Amazon is all about $$$, that is why. If they thought it were more profitable to keep the book, then they would have.
