My thoughts are - if you are that unhappy with what has gone on then do something about it. Research possible lawsuits agains Amazon or look into starting one. Check with the ACLU - they would know.
Also, I've been told there are various firewall-type applications in the works (if not already available) to block outgoing access to Kindles.
Let's be proactive......or just vent on a forum.
