Amazon Censorship; Prisoner of Infinity, Seen & Not Seen Event Videos, & More

Fuck Amazon Back

There has been some confusion lately around Amazon.com.

They have blocked me from writing reviews apparently due to my not having spent $50 in the past 12 months, which is true, since I live in Canada & shop on Amazon.ca. This is a problem because reviews on Amazon.ca do not appear on Amazon.com, so this makes it impossible for me to support the writers I want to by writing reviews on Amazon.com. I am very tempted to say Fuck Amazon but I fear they fucked me first.

What’s more, Amazon.com has been blocking people from reviewing Prisoner of Infinity, saying the book has not been released yet. This is despite the fact people have been buying the book since April 1st, and that 8 reviews have already appeared (before the ban was imposed).

Officially, the book was released yesterday, April 30th. If you have read it and enjoyed it, go review it and let us fuck Amazon where they, apparently, hurt.

If you haven’t, go buy it, maybe somewhere else. Me and book sales may be two worlds that will never meet, ever since a) I gave away all my money and said Fuck You to serving Mammon, ever. b) I tried to hedge my bets with Mammon by writing Matrix Warrior, declaring myself The One (Prince of this World), and, when asked what would be the proof, replying, “Book sales.”

As further proof of my Nothing-ness, I did a book reading and presentation in my home town for Seen & Not Seen. Despite it being probably my worst hair day ever, it went very well, as I think the videos below will show (especially the one where I keep my cap on). Only setback, for over twenty people attending, not one of my books sold! Of course I forgot to plug it! I even implicitly suggested that the book wasn’t important, because we were there for real-time, soul-to-soul connections! D’oh.

He that loveth his life shall lose it; and he that hateth his life in this world shall keep it unto life eternal.

Guess that means I am doing alright, then?!

Apparently YouTube is also keep its AI on me, as a subscriber tweeted me this recently:

quality controlling your video now, what did you do to piss off the AI? I’ve only seen it once before. Click on the emoji.. but satisfied about what, video, sound, content, your clothing? Although I’m subscribed none of your uploads appear on my “recommend” landing page.

This dovetails not-so-nicely with my current experiment in viral engineering, to see if it is possible to get past Al Gore’s rhythms with my own brand of inconvenient truths. If you want to participate…. Help. Let’s hate this world together.

  1. It’s unfortunate but it doesn’t surprise me. All my favorite folks on the interwebs are trying to find creative ways around the obvious ignoring or blocking via AI and digital robot ‘guards’. Once I finish “Seen and not Seen” I’ll def buy Prisoner…

  3. I was just about ready to say Fuck Amazon right before I got your email about this post. They terminated both my affiliate and seller accounts without cause. They said they do not disclose their reasons for why they deemed my products unfit to sell on Amazon. I lost all appeals and they kept my $40 sign up fee as a seller. It was only 3 days old and I never even uploaded a product! I have no idea why they don’t want a small indie seller like me. I mean, my products are metaphysical patches/pins, one is “truth seeker” and another is “conspiracy dealer” but I doubt they even looked at my products… Maybe it was AI filter?

  4. Dear Amazon Customer,

    Thanks for submitting a customer review on Amazon. Your review could not be posted to the website in its current form. While we appreciate your time and comments, reviews must adhere to the following guidelines:

    Here I was, thinking I had included an expletive, or mentioned a brand name within the review. I went back and cross-referenced it against the review I posted on Amazon’s sister site Goodreads, and didn’t see anything wrong with it. I tried to upload it again. Immediately, I received the below message.

    Sorry. You’re not eligible to review this product. For more information, read the Customer Review Guidelines.

  5. Further evidence of AL-Gore-rhythmic censorship, when I go to the titles listed beneath Prisoner of Infinity, under “Customers who bought this item also bought…” (eg Levenda’s Sekret Machines), and then click through all 17 pages of “Customers who bought this item also bought” on that page, Prisoner of Infinity is like the circumference of a circle: nowhere found.

  6. I’ll be buying POI soon. Will do a review on the AZ.

    I’d buy from whatever retailer puts more $$$ in your hand, but I’m curious about the experiment too.
