Shill bidding, contact details in auctions… anything that’s not a scam per se but breaches TM’s terms and conditions.

As an added comment on Mien Kampf, this is available as a free ebook. See this link. Surprisingly, this book is classified as Adult Fiction. A better classification would be "Deluded Ramblings".

As more works become available as ebooks (whether free or paid) national censors became irrelevant.
Google, the answer to so many questions!

While TM kindly email me every time a copy of this banned books is listed, they still haven't managed to send one to their CW staff. Go figure!

Here's a unique variant of this banned book. Author Ian Wishart himself is listing a copy...
I wanted to be the first to officially put one of these up for sale on Trade Me.
Will be autographed and proceeds donated to Plunket.

I'm guessing that he is unaware that his book is banned by TM. This should be interesting.

May be his statement ("officially") means that TM lifted the ban?

You're right! Here's an email just in from TM.
Thanks for getting in touch about the book Breaking Silence: The Kahui Case which went on sale in August 2011.

In June 2011 we received a fair number of approaches from members concerned about us allowing the book to be sold on Trade Me. After taking the
temperature of the Trade Me community via a poll we felt the best course of action at that stage was to not allow this book to be sold on Trade
Me.

It’s now been over two years since that decision was made and this week we received a request from the book’s author Ian Wishart to revisit
the policy. It’s clear this case will remain controversial, and will forever be a reminder of New Zealand’s poor record at protecting our
kids. However the level of noise and emotion around this book has dissipated and the coroner has issued a report backing the key assertion of
the book. As a result we think allowing the book to now be sold onsite is the right call.

This is why the listing you have sent through the Community Watch remains on the site.

Thanks for getting in touch and have a great week.
