Heard about this yesterday. If Amazon really pulled the book that's ridiculous. Maybe we should burn them just to make sure.
I hope this guy made a lot of money using STRANGER DANGER media alarmists for free publicity.
Yeah, they're totally trampling his constitutional right to have Amazon distribute his book!
TeenerTot has a dog in this race, you see.
Nobody brought up constitutional rights dude. It's just silly when a company gives in to a manufactured "public outcry" that arose from a bunch of pigs hearing Nancy Grace or some talking head make a big deal out of this one book.
There's nothing remarkable about this one and there's no reason to stop selling it because some 500 pounder from Iowa thinks someone is after her kids. Amazon sells loads of shit. I hear you can even buy books about murder.
It's like when Walmart tramples on the constitution and doesn't sell a book about gays. Because being a pedophile is no different than being gay, to some people.
Oh my God. A company not selling a thing is not "trampling on the constitution."

As long as no laws are broken I don't have a problem with him writing this crap but I as a parent and/or book sales outlet would definately not stock it.
I'm not really up on my sex tourism laws, but many countries can charge you when you get back for something you committed on foreign soil.
Including the US.

Not like you can't just buy it off Ebay... Or any one of the other millions of websites that sell books. Because you know, Amazon is the only place where you can buy books online.

"it's not always bad for the child, but it is confining for the adult" yikes

So long as The Man doesn't take away our right to read graphic child on child sex acts at the end of Stephen King novels, we're okay as a culture.

Was the script font really necessary?
That's you got out of this?

BUt I can go to Amazon right now and order any of Hakim Bey / Peter Lamborn Wilson's books.
Not to mention this little gem: http://www.amazon.com/We-were-NOT-abused/dp/0967699738/ref=sr_1_2? s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1289598358&sr=1-2
Not to mention an entire page dedicated to David Riegel: http://www.amazon.com/David-L.-Riegel/e/B002PWQVA4/ref=ntt_dp_epwb k_0

Is there any phrase more infuriating than "I support freedom of speech, but this is too much!"
Tonight's Anderson Cooper guest on this very issue is poeworthy.
"We now return to the Glen Beck program"

Wow dude, you are totally in front of a camera advocating pedophilia.
The story's article is up on POE-News. It contains this gem:
In a phone interview with CNN yesterday, Greaves defended his book and said that "true pedophiles love children and would never hurt them." But when CNN asked if the e-book was a how-to manual, he said "there are certain parts that are advisory" and added further that "penetration is out. You can't do that with a child, but kissing and fondling I don't think is that big of a problem."
Hard to feel anything but positive about a potential armageddon after reading that.
