    Authors Product Description:
    This is my attempt to make pedophile situations safer for those juveniles that find themselves involved in them, by establishing certian rules for these adults to follow. I hope to achieve this by appealing to the better nature of pedosexuals, with hope that their doing so will result in less hatred and perhaps liter sentences should they ever be caught.
    In germany some people say it's like medicine. It's good against heartattack. If it is a lie - who cares?

    at 4:00pm there were 400 reviews on amazons site, by 11:00pm there were over 5,000 reviews, by 3:30am the page was down, i have freinds and family that are victims of pedophiles, amazon can sincerely kiss my *** goodbye for good, not another dime ever, i would encourage anyone else to consider the same going forward, amazon did the right thing, but not for the right reason, off my soapbox now, have a good one

    Exactly- a little too late. Anderson Cooper (I love him) had a good segment on this last night. Said Amazon usually will not refuse an item for the purpose of censorship...yet they refuse to sell porn (which is legal)- censorship. So, Amazon isn't consistent.

    Even more disturbing is the argument in the comments on Amazon about the book. Amazon customers were actually arguing for Amazon and the book's author- that it's their 1st Amendment right to write/sell it. Some said they would buy the book and not even read it to show support of the 1st Amendment. They both may be 'free' to do so, but it shows an absurdly gross disregard and disrespect for victims of pedophelia, something that should've been blatantly obvious to Amazon. The Constitution is supposed to protect our individual liberties--protecting children goes without saying. Both Amazon & the book's author exploited that right, facilitating the exploitation of the defenseless. I have friends & family victimized by pedophiles. I can't imagine how many children that have gone missing and were killed by pedophiles trying to cover their crimes. I'm done with Amazon.

    I don't know what I just said or why.

    why don't people understand my intention
