Kindle owners punish publishers delaying books

According to this article Kindle owners have found an effective way to voice their displeasure with publishers delaying the release of books in the Kindle format. They're giving the book 1 star reviews.

This may not impact the sales of a book like "Game Changer" that is expected to receive polarizing reviews, but it could definately have an impact on sales for other books. Amazon's rating system is a vital tool used in marketing a book, and pissing off customers, especially heavy reading Kindle customers, may not be such a smart idea.
