A spammer, who knew
http://www.amazon.com/KindleBoards-com-Spam/forum/FxBVKST06PWP9B/Tx34RI7XVRYOIAX/2/ref=cm_cd_et_md_pl?%5Fencoding=UTF8&cdMsgNo=38&asin=B000FI73MA&cdSort=oldest&cdMsgID=Mx3QGRMZYZMSXTE#Mx3QGRMZYZMSXTECS said:What a ridiculous thread. Even if Leslie's response was hot-tempered, I can't say I blame her when she's being attacked over something this trivial. She's not spamming the board at all. It's just a signature, and I for one am glad it's there because kboards.com is an awesome resource that I never would've found out about otherwise.
Whoever said it was against Amazon's TOS must really be in the dark about how business, finance, and marketing works.
If anything, Amazon loves the fact that there's another board dedicated to Kindle, and I'm sure they deeply appreciate that Leslie is essentially advertising their own product by mentioning the board in her sig. Having an independent board dedicated to Kindle is a plus for Amazon because it means people care enough about their product to create a website for it. Jeff Bezos is an excellent businessman, and I'm sure he realizes the value a site like Kindleboards.com brings to his own company. It can only help him by driving up interest, buzz, and - most importantly - SALES for the Kindle.
www.kboards.com <--- not my site, but join it anyway
Leslie loves her kindle that is why she'd started The Amazon Kindle FAQ to help new kindler. Answering FAQ is not her job or anything, it is her good will and she just wanted to help others. I'm sure it has helped so many people. That is why it stays at top of this forum. With her good will, it is natural for her to direct people to a place where FAQ is easier to navigate and search. As everyone must know this forum is not good with the search. Kindleboards.com is not hers. She is helping others in the kidleboards.com just as she is helping others here. If her good will is wrong, I don't know what is right.
