Authors are getting pestered for typos in Kindles they sell

Reclaim the Net advises Kindle authors that some readers have been Amazon Kindle’s reader correction utility and been removing books whose authors don’t respond in time.

This would sound like it applies to Create Space, but not to work from other POD companies.

The facility has long been present, but there are reports that trolls have recently been causing authors to be harassed.

Amazon Create Space no longer offers its own copyediting, so it is essential for authors to hire 3rd party proofreaders.
An author said her informal spelling (of words like “moreso”) was being incorrectly flagged.
