I can post a link if the moderators feel it wouldn't promote retribution.
I would love a list of authors who are too stupid to pay attention to the contracts they signed up for.

A lot of authors don't pay attention to which features you agree to in order to get the 70% rate.
Although if they also included lists of authors who weren't actually participating--where the lending option obviously wouldn't work--yeah, I could see authors getting upset at that. I can't see that it's worth much outcry; that's "oops your book was mistakenly included on a list of lendable books," not "oops your book was mistakenly lent out against your contract terms."
But I suppose "this site has listed our books in the wrong column!!!!" just isn't as rageworthy as "this site is PIRATING our books!"
