No discourse, please

Wendy Seltzer points to the extraordinary story of Amazon telling J.D. Lasica that a review of Dan Gillmor’s popular We the Media
is not publishable: “While we appreciate your opinions on the subject,
the intent of customer reviews is to assist our customers in making an
informed purchase decision. We provide our customer reviews section for
you to comment on the merits of the book and the author’s writing
style. We ask that you not use it as a place for discourse on the
subject matter.”
