    The Write Agenda

    Hi Guys,

    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.

    That would work if the Sith were non compos mentis as well as evil. They're just evil.

    Doh, shows you how much I know about Star Wars. Yeah, that's a good point. Aw man, now I have to find an example of crazy AND evil now...

    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.

    They're still around??

    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.

    Thanks, I just ran a quick scan and everything's clean. I certainly won't go over there again.

    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.

    I'd rather go back to Marseilles. I had a lot of fun the last time I was there and I was a sailor.
