Breaking News: Amazon Seller Central Crashes - Amazon Sellers Unable To Manage Amazon Accounts

If you are an Amazon seller, you were possibly shocked today to find out that your login information was not associated with an Amazon seller account. Messages such as this and other messages have been appearing on the Amazon seller login page but one thing is consistent, no one is able to log in and manage their sales, prices, shipping or any other part of their online Amazon business.

To make matters worse, the Amazon backend has been down all day and there is no time frame as to when they will be able to get it back up and running.

The current message looks like this:

Google To Ban "Revenge Porn" From Search and Image Results

Revenge Porn, the posting of sexually explicit images to extract revenge on a former sexual partner, is set to be censored by Google according to a blog post made

revenge porn images are intensely personal and emotionally damaging, and serve only to degrade the victims—predominantly women. This is the reason being given for the policy decision.

Mr. Singhal states that Google will be creating an online form whereby victims of Revenge Porn can request that images be taken out of the Google Images search results.

Of course, Google is not able to take the actual Revenge Porn images off of the internet, because they are hosted on sites that Google does not control. However, the large majority of search users rely on Google for their search and image results and this would cut down on the ability of people to find these images using Google search.
