  1. Hmmm, much to ponder. China I’m not surprised at and it looks like Smashwords may have back-peddaled on the caving to PayPal. I use both, Smashwords and Paypal – don’t want PayPal initiating a whole new way of censorship.

    Keep it coming LB – you’re right, at least they can’t literally burn an Ebook; but they’ll keep trying to find ways….

  2. Good point, Larry.

    I’m waiting for the reboot of Fahrenheit 451, where the evil firemen become sinister magnates who erase Kindles with powerful electromagnets. New title: Gauss 451!
