We have decided to remove any overtly sexual content from the App Store

toady I recieved 7 letters from apple, my 7 novels have been removed from sale

Dear Orangefish.INC,

The App Store continues to evolve, and as such, we are constantly refining our guidelines. Your application, invisible girl, contains content that we had originally believed to be suitable for distribution. However, we have recently received numerous complaints from our customers about this type of content, and have changed our guidelines appropriately.

We have decided to remove any overtly sexual content from the App Store, which includes your application.

Thank you for your understanding in this matter. If you believe you can make the necessary changes so that invisible girl complies with our recent changes, we encourage you to do so and resubmit for review.

Sincerely,
iPhone App Review

but the fact is, if there is one word talking about sex in this novel, I will kill myself!!!!!

why, apple removed it without read it frist?

I have to resubmit them, but before that, my novels were in top book free in some country, I guess after that,I will lose my position.

so sad and angry about what had happened

and more sad and angry to find out so many sexy pic apps still there, apple,what are you doing?

20-40 a day worldwide? pretty good numbers if you ask some developers.

I reported Sexy Poker to Apple, I wonder if and how long it'll take to get removed.

It's the American way. Killing is fine, sex is taboo.

How about this new game description (released today). Apparently selling drinking style games to the kiddies is fine:

Alcohol Frenzy [New release - $.99]
Hi Fellows,

We just released our first game and we are really excited about it.

The game is called "Alcohol Frenzy" and it's pretty simple: You have to throw a piece of lemon to the air, drink all tequila shots and catch the lemon before it hits the plate!
