I can't tell you what is true here, but if it turns out that Amazon is cutting out purchases from smaller suppliers than it will likely just push them to sell to third party sellers or to sell directly to customers via the marketplace -- meaning, it would be a headache, not a death sentence.

RC, what can you tell me about axios as a newsworthy source?  Its not one I know, but they have some interesting articles.

Googling they seem left of centre. What I find says they should be OK.

That's what I think, too.  I don't recall their articles picked up by my readers to be too far left-ish, but my filters may be affecting that.
