Amazon enrages authors as it switches to 'pay-per-page' model

Re: [redacted] Amazon

That's a rubbish analogy and you know it, but I'll run with it:

If I pay for an all-you-can-eat buffet, and the food quality on offer is based on what the buffet buys from the suppliers, and the suppliers get paid by the food actually eaten rather than wasted, then it'd be the best buffet in the world, and I would go there often. Suppliers making the best bread would have it bought, those baking loaves which are over-salted and burnt to a cinder are very quickly not going to be part of that market anymore.

I see nothing wrong with this.
