While this may sound like something silly to worry about, I personally like to do a lot of my online shopping through Amazon. They're very easy to use, with a good interface and features (at least up until this point), have a pretty good selection over a wide variety of items, and have good prices to boot. Oh, and usually good, fast, reliable shipping. But if you can't even *find* anything that you search for...? Well, I really don't want to have to switch to someplace else that I may not be nearly as happy with. I'm a creature of habit, in many ways.
So I'm hoping really that other people will find this as hideous an idea as I do, and will let Amazon know. Maybe if enough customers send them intelligent feedback, they'll re-think this, and make it an option for searching rather than The Way To Do Things.
So if anyone else wants to send the feedback, the following URL *should* take you to the feedback page, or at least the best one I could find for the purpose... (URL is broken up on the page for ease of typing, and needs to be recombined...
