Amazon Removes Some Explicit Yaoi Manga from Kindle Store

Yet another reason I’m glad that Kindle was not my choice of ereader. This is part of their actual explanation for what constitutes “offensive materials,” which they can choose to remove or not make available:  “What we deem offensive is probably about what you would expect, ”  which is about as circular, nondescript, and vague a definition as I can imagine. What is particularly strange is that the print versions of some of these removed items are available, at least via the Amazon.ca site. Is the digital version considered to be more offensive?  Is it simply easier to pull a digital book off the virtual shelf?  Are different people involved in making these decisions?
