Slate: Amazon's Tax Stance Unfair and Unethical

theodp (442580) writes "Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos apparently feels spending $42 million to build a clock in a remote Texas mountain is a better use of his money than giving it to Washington State, so it's not too surprising to see Amazon support a California referendum to repeal sales tax for online retailers. Slate's Farhad Manjoo loves buying from Amazon and would hate to pay higher prices, but says the e-tailer 'has no intellectually sound arguments against collecting taxes from residents — by all ethical and civic standards, its position is unsound.'"

what happened to voting on proposed articles? (0)

Anonymous Coward | more than 3 years ago | (#36745630)

Up until fairly recently, when I looked at a new submission (gray background in my color scheme), there was a place to vote, + or - on promoting to the main page. If it made the main page, then the title is given a green background. Now all I see is the option to post a comment like this...no more place to vote.

I used to get mod points every now and then, but haven't had them in over a year. Fwiw, when I log in it tells me that I have "Karma: Positive".

For a long time, I had the option of declining adverts, it seemed to be based on my contributions and use of mod points? Now I see adverts and can't find any place to opt out.

Is there a page anyone could point me to that explains the /. process?

Submission Text Formatting Tips

We support a small subset of HTML, namely these tags:

  • b
  • i
  • p
  • br
  • a
  • ol
  • ul
  • li
  • dl
  • dt
  • dd
  • em
  • strong
  • tt
  • blockquote
  • div
  • quote
  • ecode

"ecode" can be used for code snippets, for example:

<ecode>    while(1) { do_something(); } </ecode>
