Paypal has decided to abuse its considerable position by imposing their moral beliefs on the self-publishing industry, forcing Smashwords, Bookstrand and other sites to remove certain categories of erotica from their websites. No corporation should consider itself a moral authority in any way, shape or form. This is a slippery slope, and even if this does not directly affect us as writers or readers...yet, we must stop censorship and book banning.
