> Reading and leaving reviews would help weed out badly written books

If you can't see that the abject failure of reviews to police the self-published ecosystem has directly led to this new policy, then I don't know what to tell you. Amazon reviews are bought and sold more often than ebooks themselves are, and this is Amazon admitting it can't fix reviews and has to try something radically different.
