A Trained Chimp:
Why didn't Gruber contact somebody at Amazon and explain the misunderstanding? "There was no indication that there was any way to appeal this decision and reinstate my account" … except he apparently didn't even try. It's a David and Goliath story where David doesn't even get out of bed.

> But in no way is it a relationship between peers. Amazon holds all the power, and as evidenced above, they can just pull the plug at any moment, with no warning and no recourse.

Boo fucking hoo? Why should this relationship be anything remotely like one between "peers"?

Honestly, how did Gruber get this far in life?
