The difference is that we are not talking about an "if someone had published a book", but about a real published book in 2010.
In answering the same way you just did, let's suppose that a pedophiles guide was targeting one of your child or children if you are a father or any child of your family, would you still consider the freedom of speech for the author?
Freedom to market and sell?
Responsibility of author / publisher when individuals acted upon the information presented?
For me this is clear: in both cases, nothing can justify a book which its only goal is to hurt another human.

Even if I truly understand your point about the freedom of speech, I can't agree with it: we are humans, we have a brain, we should be able to make the difference without defending the worse to keep our freedom of speech.
In some countries like Yemen, man can be married to a 8 year old girl: there it is possible and here it would be prohibited and considered as pedophilia.
So, because it is clear in the mentality of occidental countries that pedophilia is wrong, no need to talk 100 years about our freedom of speech.
Amazon is on US territory where pedophilia is prohibited. Books making apologia of pedophilia should be prohibited.

Don't worry, I didn't think so, and I even found your joke funny ;)

You see, when you want, you can make your own point without being offensive to people.

I said "If you are interested" which means if you are not, that's OK.

Gooshin, starting from your first answer on that topic, you are making your answers personally directed and to tell you frankly, I don't appreciate that. If you don't have the same opinion than me on this topic, fine, I accept it, but having true arguments would be more useful.

You are saying "It's a book, knowledge is knowledge": here is the following sentence from the author. Really would you qualify this as good and necessary knowledge?
“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 [sic] sentences should they ever be caught.”

Again, I am not against freedom of speech.
If this guide was just a sexual content book for adults, I wouldn't care.

What is wrong with me? Well, I can ask you the same question!
And obviously you have as much free time as I do, if you are able to answer to topic you don't care about.

And I just sent a request to close my account.
No need to say more, this is just disgusting. I prefer to buy at a more expensive price in knowing that the company has a minimum of ethic.

This screen capture reminded me of a topic I read on a blog some couple of months ago. I found it but unfortunately, this is french : Google translator might be able to help a bit (otherwise, tell me which part you would want to understand).

DigitLife | Apple @ Photo: Photos corrompues: attention à votre stratégie de sauvegarde

I find big similarities between your case and their case. They work on a Mac and on a RAW picture as what you do too.

At first, the topic is based on the necessity to do multiple backups on different support as the author suspected his hard drive to be corrupted (Some of his RAW pictures have bad appearance as you can see). Then, starting the 8th remark, some other reasons start to appear with the resolution of the problem, like:
- changing RAM memory,
- OS X 10.6 bug...

At the end, the author of this topic finally resolved the problem by finding the responsible of these troubles, to be the hard drive controller.
In any case, don't throw your pics.

I hope it helps.

Yes I did and this is not Hoya's voice : this is the point of view of Citi.
And as we have experienced many times in the past, bank's interest is not always in the interest of a company...
