A few months ago I moved my blog off WordPress due to their sudden banning of Roissy with no warning and no appeal possible. WordPress had never given me a warning but I figured better safe than sorry.
For all of my public nationalist right views, a few of which have gone viral at different times, I have never come under the evil gaze of those in charge. My books are on Amazon, Kindle and Audible. I use Soundcloud as well for my podcasts. Thus far nothing had come up to give me concern that the malicious eye had turned towards me.
Until this morning.
I received the following email this morning from the team at Audible:
Your ACX account has been flagged due to unusual activity concerning the use of your ACX promotional codes. While we support the legitimate efforts of our users to promote their audiobooks, attempting to manipulate the ACX platform and/or ACX programs is not permitted.
As a result, we will no longer provide you with promotional codes to use to promote your ACX projects. Please note that our evaluation process takes multiple criteria into consideration when deciding to place restrictions, and we take action based on those criteria. Going forward, please also make sure that you observe ACX’s guidelines (http://audible-acx.custhelp.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/8887).
Failure to meet ACX’s guidelines or agreements may result in restrictions against your account, up to and including termination.
If you would like to review our Legal Contracts and Guidelines, please visit: (https://www.acx.com/help/legal-contracts/200485430 )
Please be advised that this is our final decision and we won’t be offering further insight or action on this matter.
Kafka would be proud.
The thing is, not only have I never used an ACX promotional code, I didn’t even know they existed, let alone how one would go about using them. At this stage my first book is still available on Audible but I wouldn’t count on it being there for long.
Audible is part of the Amazon corporate purple worm, so this doesn’t look great for the future. If you’ve ever wanted one of my books I would advise to grab them sooner rather than later. No doubt some SJW maggot complained about me in some way, or there is a member of the Audible staff that did this all by themselves. Whatever the case, it’s a sign that I have been noticed.
Thank God for that. It was like never being picked for the sports team at school. Finally. Took ’em a while. Jolly good show and all that, eh what? As I said to the vicar, do you want a harvest festival or don’t you? Oh, look; it’s the colonel. Rather dashing today, old chap. Shall we go out for a spot of bird watching?
I suppose I’ll just have to build my own platform now. That’s what the conservatives always say when this happens to someone on the right. Free enterprise and all that, eh what?
To be continued.
