I'll be taking action later today or early tomorrow, but for now I just want to spread the word:  Amazon has removed sales ranks on many of its GLBTQ titles.  For more info, for what this may mean to the authors and to readers, take a look around.

Amazon Rank

Edited to add: Kind of a strange aside, or possibly side-effect.  I'm keeping an eye on Angels in America, which is still ranked, and over the past couple of hours it's Amazon sales rank has moved from the 72,000s to the 28,000s. 
Update #2:  As of 6:50 pm Pacific, it's #12,508.  Are people buying, or are that many books being de-ranked?  If the latter, what will be left by morning?  

Update # 3, 7:50 pm:
Results of Amazon search:

Teens Social Issues Homosexuality Nonfiction

Showing 1 - 12 of 74 Results

Um, hello, 74 results?  That's it?  Where are the rest?

Final update, 8:28 pm:
Angels is back up over 14,000
And someone has posted some food-for-thought about trolling and the Amazon debacle here.
