An Interesting At The Back Fence Column…

Anne Marble, the All About Romance list moderator has a really good At The Back Fence Column up this week.

She’s talking about the history of online flame wars, in the early days of AAR, when LLB’s name used to be worse than mud.

It seems that authors and readers have been arguing about the same things for umpteen years now, and authors behaving badly is not a new phenomenon.

Go read, it’s all very interesting.

By the way, the AAR After Hours Blog is now up and running, so go check it out!

    This is VERY INTERESTING. I’ll have to read it all when I have more time.

    Oh, BTW, I’ve subscribed to your FeedBlitz thingy, and got my 1st message this morning. Very useful.

    You must be off on your hols soon, BTW.

    Wow, what’s old really is new again…alhough it seems we still react the same way. I was suprised by the people who logged in under different names to get their views out again and again, how stupid is that!

    Thanks darlin’, that was an interesting read.

    It has come to the point that the same old arguments are really just ZZZZZZZZZZ Everyone has an opinion and few of us are swayed by opposing commentary.
