So to be a completionist--and possibly because they are not giving me work at work, so I can indulge myself in a lot more extracurricular reading than the norm:

On Amazon Failure, Meta-Trolls, and Bantown by tehdely about trolls, amazon, and the abusive ranking system. Already linked this one, so just added for context for the next.

bryant has a discussion here on a claim of deliberate trolling and a partial debunking, along with speculation. The only thing that really doesn't work for me in the explanation is the hit on the erotica category not related to GLBT.

And related, #amazonfail is a Symptom regarding amazon's architecture and user rating content.

Also, from tzikeh:

The Guardian: 'Gay writing' falls foul of Amazon sales ranking system, an excellent article on the situation as it stands.
