Hey, iq3 - thanks for starting this discussion! (And for coming back.)
If anyone's curious about the results, I only have unofficial info from Kindle at the moment - my publisher is still waiting to hear back from Apple and Kobo. Seems bizarre that electronic sales information isn't instant, but that's life in a bizarre industry. Anyway, these preliminary results have the book selling approx 30x the normal amount in a given week.
So thank you SO much to everyone who participated - by buying a book or commenting and keeping the conversation alive. We may not change policy this time (I hope we do), but I think our voices have made a contribution.
