Authonomy - Flame Wars

"There is no such thing as bad publicity." Maybe, but the latest dust-up has really disgusted me. This may be enough to make me dump the site.

Some writer's are whining immature idiots very, very thin-skinned, others have a brick building chip on their shoulders. Put them together, and you get a disaster.

I'm well aquainted with alcohol, bars and bar fights. Otherwise perfectly nice, intelligent people get drunk as hell and go looking for trouble. I've never known a Limey or a Mick who would walk away from a bar fight. Being both - I never did either.

I don't know who threw the first punch, but like a fight in a crowded Harbor bar - there has been epithets epitaphs slander thrown at everyone, blood is flowing and some poor sot is going to have to clean up the mess.

This weekend on Authonomy is going to suck.

I think I shall ban myself from the site, go do something useful - like query agents or clean the barn. Maybe get a root canal - something more fun anyways.

Gag me.

Uh-oh. I hadn't been over there to see what's going on, but now you've riled my curiosity ;) LOL. I'm a lot like a cat in that.

LOL - sometimes I get replies from the Authonomy crew here. Kinda scary, kinda cool.

But this last flame war is pure bullshit. I don't know who started it, but it's been going on all week.

I'm used to people pointing fingers and crying 'sock puppet' until it is meaningless. But when they start throwing the race card - I get pissed off.

Hope you find it less offensive than I do. (G)
