After my limited dealings so far with Amazon,I know what she means. After publishing on Smashwords,which felt like doing business with a friendly neighbourhood corner shop,putting my books onto Amazon had all of the charm of swimming in a pool full of sharks,while covered in bacon !

Corporations don’t become huge by being nice.
