It's not only being banned from the forums! A couple weeks ago, I decided to see if an old account of mine was still banned (for posting 'spiteful' remarks). When I tried to give a star rating on a DVD, I was told: "Sorry, we are unable to accept your review of this product for either one or both of the following reasons: Your previous review of this product did not comply with our Customer Reviews Guidelines. Amazon does not permit reviews from customers whose relationship to the product or seller may be perceived as biased." Of course I had never attempted to rate the product using that account.

I've seen this sort of thing mentioned on numerous sites on the 'Net. Amazon started fighting back against paid reviewers. In the process, they have falsely accused sincere, innocent customers of bias, working as paid agents of writers, publishers, etc. and have gone so far as to ban known genre writers from reviewing works in their field. Apparently someone such as Brian Greene cannot review books by physicists.

I haven't purchased anything from Amazon in over a decade. I'm hoping to hell that the company falls off the face of the Earth. Mostly so that bookstores I can visit will open in my city.

Amazonians!

I see in the ruins of the Amazon atheist forum that Macheath was banned again for the second time in a couple of weeks. He had already deleted most of the 'Schroedinger' posts in the thread where he had decided to taunt RRR and others for being raptured.

If anyone would like, I'll go over to Amazon and invite 'Strange Theory of Light and Matter/Quid Est Veritas/Schroedinger's Cat (Katt/etc.)/Macheath/etc./etc./etc.' over here to join the hijinks.

Any takers?

I haven't been banned (yet), but have resolved to no longer buy anything from Amazon.
It's their site, they can do what they want with it and I am not required to add to their coffers.

I could invite Macheath/etc. over here. On the other hand, people here at The Thinking Atheist have had to deal with Mabus. Any and all Amazon trolls are going to seem like junk food compared to that one. That and I forgot that I'm banned at Amazon too!
