We Celebrate the Last Day of 'Bashing the House that Bezos Built' Week With A Quote

Posted by "Mike" (in response to Clay Shirky's elaborately explained about-face regarding Amazon's recent anti-gay "glitch"):

I don’t think Amazon has any kind of secret agenda, but there is something rotten with their search algorithms. Even today, if you go to Amazon and do a simple search on “homosexuality” the top hit is a virulent anti-gay book.

I have no problem with Amazon selling these books, but making this the top search result is like making “Mein Kampf” the top search result for “Judaism.”
