They fixed it and imho the apology they sent out was too clumsy to be completely insincere, so I chose to believe their cover story. Also, someone said that including lgbt merchandise with our regular purchases would send a better message than a boycott, so since that meant I could still order whatever I wanted whenever I wanted it, I went with that solution, and I'm now the proud owner of some random stranger's complete list of recommended lgbt movies. The strategy has certainly made movie nights interesting here lately.

ah excellent. i'm glad that's done because (selfishly) i have that whole list o stuff i want to buy and wasn't too excited to re-create it at another online store.

also i was wondering if you'd seen monimala's new veronica mars fic? she just published it today at her lj. and it's excellent!

Nope, I'll have to check that out. I'm not actually active in the VM fandom, although I loved the show.

As for amazon, if you need any lgbt point-making recs, Imagine Me and You and Kissing Jessica Stein are both genuinely funny movies with adorable characters and you definitely don't need to be gay to enjoy them.

i loved kissing jessica stein and i've been wanting to see imagine me and you. thanks for reminding me!

and with a name like backup_mars, you weren't into veronica mars fandom? please to be explaining! thank you ;-)

I'm sorry, I thought my obvious sockpuppetry was, well, obvious by now. Veronica Mars got selected as my fandom-to-hide-behind because while I loved the show (which I caught all of on dvd in practically one sitting), I never did the fandom, and it's a genre outside of my usual interests.

Anyway, I did read the fic you recommended last night, and it was fantastic. So that's three total VM fics read in my life, and they were all excellent. I'm thinking I do need to play in that sandbox now, I like encountering high quality fanfic!

It's supposed to be fixed by now, but the best way to check it out is buying something :)
