amazon vs vpn recap

A reader characterized some recent posts here on Amazon blocking VPNs as "ranting." Just so we're clear, it's actually kind of a hopeful development that Amazon is violating its own "customer convenience is paramount" credo by putting up roadblocks to sign-in: it suggests its business model is challenged by user privacy concerns.
The true rants were aimed at a VPN company that excused its failure to get past the Amazon firewall on the basis of Amazon's need for security. Poor Jeff, everyone should be helping him to be a better monopolist.
