Comment 12 to: Typo Hunt: Empire Games - Charlie's Diary

Please do not report errors through the Kindle app.

Firstly, they don't get to the authors. (Or even the publishing folks, in some cases.)

Secondly, Amazon use some whacked algorithm to boot books off sale if too many errors are reported.

So reporting via Kindle won't fix errata, but it may get the book yanked off sale (and fuck my income stream)!
I guess that amazon doesn't want to promote low quality typo-ridden stuff to its customers, but not even forwarding those reports sounds quite unexpected.

(or maybe it's written in the app or something: I don't buy from Amazon, so I've never seen it.)
