UPDATE:  There's not much new in the article, but it's a good quick recap.

 

There are now reports that Amazon is removing reviews that contain the work "cocky," regardless what book is being reviewed.  I'll try to find some screenshots but Twitter is moving so fast I can't keep up.

 

If you're there, Jenny Trout is keeping up on the subject, including a play-by-play of a 90-minute (!!) video Hopkins posted on Facebook but which she then took down.  Also it's worth it to follow Kevin Kneupper @kneupperwriter, as he's the author turned writer who is filing or has filed the challenge to Hopkins's registration.
