So, are they actually back yet? Any reports from the authors/publishers affected?

Considering how much of my money Amazon's had over the years, I just want to know what the dilly is.

I suspect it was a ham-handed attempt at appeasement to some group...and not well thought out because someone, somewhere at Amazon didn't think out that you know those "stop words" are kinda too broad and will wipe out all kinds of things unintended...The "glitch" being in the mind of the idiot who thought up the idea. But it would be nice if they fessed up to what happened.
