Not that I don't agree with you about the inverted comma glitch inverted comma, but I do wonder just what the real effect of this ranking is. I mean, it's used in crowing, and that seems to be about it.

> Once a book is taken off the ranking system, it virtually disappears from the *search engine*. You can look for a book by author name, topic or title and you will not be able to find it. Only if you search by ISBN or have a direct link to the book in question. Which is why the Yuricon Shop links all still work, even for Maka-Maka , which has been de-ranked.
> The books are still there...they have been made virtually invisible. The de-ranking also means that if a LGBT book makes the bestsellers list, no one who does not have a direct link will ever know.
