I hope I don't stir up too much by posting this but I wanted to share my thoughts and opinions on a group I just found on Google: The Write Agenda.
Now, I don't believe everything I read but I have to say that this organization comes across as the anti-matter counterpart to Absolute Write. I started reading their stuff because I wanted to discover what they are about and obviously, these are people I don't want to know.
One part that made me laugh out loud was where they compared the SFWA to a cult. I thought that was hilarious, especially since I've always considered SFWA membership to be a prestigious thing to have on the ole writin' resume.
I'm telling you, it's like AW are the Jedis and The Write Agenda are the Sith, to use a Star Wars comparison.

The writing never stops
As there be light, so also there must be dark. I once read one of their rants. I'd have spent the time better picking lint out of my navel.

I thought all their negativity had formed a mini black hole and sucked them inside out.
Wallace Cass-- give your computer a check up. There's malware all over that site.
The last time I visited my machine picked up a bug, so I've not been back. Wrong Agenda is a vindictive (and ultimately ineffective) little troll.
So from what everyone is saying the site is ugly, nasty, clueless, and packing more viruses than a sailor just back from shore leave in Marsailles. Sounds like a fun spot to while away an afternoon, all right.

check out my blog; c'mon, you know you want to.
I check on them once and while from my Unix box and it's full of stupid. So full it makes my head hurt.
