Amazon: It was a "Glitch"

Lots of questions remain. How could there be "glitch" that cuts out only LGBT content? And why did some authors report this happening from as early as February?

Amazon now says the removal of sales rankings for LGBT books was all an innocent mistake, it was a "glitch" and that it will be corrected:

A groundswell of outrage, concern and confusion sprang up over the weekend, largely via Twitter, in response to what authors and others believed was a decision by Amazon to remove adult titles from its sales ranking. On Sunday evening, however, an Amazon spokesperson said that a glitch had occurred in its sales ranking feature that was in the process of being fixed. The spokesperson added that there was no new adult policy.

Do you buy it?
