What is wrong with using Amazon?

I was vaguely aware that are are 'issues' with Amazon but am embarrassed to admit that I hadn't followed it up. Have now read this: http://www.housmans.com/boycottamazon.php and will think at least twice in future before using Amazon!

Update January 2015:
The other day I came across Wordery on eBay while looking for the New Oxford Style Manual, following recommendations from translator colleagues. I proceeded to order the book from Wordery and was well impressed. Based on my experience so far, I can recommend Wordery as an alternative to Amazon for book orders.
