**There was no agreement**

What part of TOS don't you understand?

Maybe just maybe if you put your mind to it and came up with an independent thought, you could stop scalping people. Plus I agree with earlier post, meditation might just do the trick.

I also assumed Amazon was a respectable decision when decidind to do business with them... I don't see how somebody can think giving away your work for free is nothing. I believe glddrummond works for amazon. He's everywhere at their defense. Giving away one thousand books to make a profit on two hundred is ridiculous.

If amazon deserves one acknowledgment, their tolerance of free speech is noted.

But you are right about the overwhelming-majority of opinions expressed as freely here, without personal consideration I am sure, there is no end to the party-line being towed in the boldface of termless copyright breach of 768 paid titles; with their side subjects, unrelated advice and post-hijacking, they divert and obfuscate the little man's plea. "Won't you listen to me, they stole," i tell you, "they flat-out stole from me!!!"

To your point msblackbutterfly free is one mistake we are free to make. Stealing my 768 titles was not part of our deal.

amazon knows better than to stand in the way of free speech. much better to deride and ignore it away.

So they thought.

Phase one is complete....

I'm still comin for you amazon.

Had you bothered to read the TOS you would have learned that terminating your account for any reason causes forfeiture of your earnings. Now you are complaining that you "lost" these sales for opening two accounts at the same time. KDP amended its agreement in September, which points all of this out. KDP thinks it owes you nothing. You entered into a one-sided contract. Had it been thousands of dollars involved you would be in your rights to sue, but you made a bad move. Forget it and move on.
