The only thing that is obscene is censorship. Craig Bruce
I am a person who is very capable of choosing what I like and what I don't . If I am not interested in a book, hey I DON'T BUY IT... its that fucking simple. I do NOT need someone doing this for me. I have a right to choose, the right to say "not my cup of tea.", I have the right to say "HELL YEAH I want to read that!"... You sirs are not going to do it for me.
There are those of us who like a type of genera, it may not be what you consider "proper" but hey, you are not living with me or a factor in my life so butt the fuck out... You have no right to tell me what is "best for me." You have a company and are covering your ass, I understand that. But are you doing this at the expense of us who are loyal to you? I have no problem walking away from sites doing this. You seem to think you are doing all of us a favor, but you sir, are speaking FOR me and I did not give you permission to do so. You do not speak for me, so please STOP!!!
Censorship, is a very bad thing and you seem to think you are protecting us. I am of the thinking that we need to be protected from you and your judgment. You are under the impression you are doing this for the greater good, well sir, if you had better age restrictions you might not find this an issue. My 10 year old can purchase anything and get away with it... so whose at fault? We as parents, are responsible for making sure our locks are on our computers, approving website and making sure all safe guards are in place. But what responsibility lies on you? You are clearly selling violent games, music and movies. Is that my fault? Where do you draw the line?
Send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org, telling him to stop censoring/targeting books!!!!
I assume since you are doing this in the literature department, you are also doing this in ALL media outlets.... Video games, movies, music..... I mean its only fair if you are removing "smut" you should be doing this across the board right? Well let me help you out...found these right on your Instant Video....
What about the series of Grand Theft that you so proudly sell?
God of War
And how many "explicit lyrics" mp3 or disks do you sell?
How about Anime?
It only seems fair if you are going to pull books you should be doing this SITE WIDE.
Requiem for a dream
Texas Chainsaw Massacre
The Hills Have Eyes
Flowers in the attic ,Pretty much anything by VC Andrews
The Thorn Birds
There's an entire list that goes on and on.
May as well not sell French movies or anything foreign.
Censorship ends in logical completeness when nobody is allowed to read any books except the books that nobody reads....George Bernard Shaw
Everyone has an opinion, and the guy screaming for censorship may be the next guy to have his ideas cut off. Richard King
The only valid censorship of ideas is the right of people not to listen. Tommy Smothers
Censorship is to art as lynching is to justice. Henry Louis Gates
Censorship always defeats it own purpose, for it creates in the end the kind of society that is incapable of exercising real discretion. Henry Steele Commager
