    likewise, though first i've snagged their certificate and posted it on my site. my theory is that it means absolutely nothing, so therefore anyone can use it.

    "Nick" has way too much time on his hands.

    It looks like English, in that I recognize most of the words, and the words seem to be arranged into sentences...

    Even if I stumbled on that page cold, with no idea what his agenda was or why, his prose style has flat-earth-conspiracy theorist written all over it. I can't imagine that anyone taking this guy seriously.

    Gotcha zanjan; will make them available, if it's OK with Victoria, tomorrow.

    Do, please, take note of TWA's assine, illiterate half-witted copyright statement, right under the CC statement.

    Geeze. Can they even read? We know they can't write.

    He's the kind of guy that you really hope has velcro on his pants, because he can't really cope with the subtleties and inherent risk of a zipper.

    Somebody cue Mr. Skins, because Medievalist deserves a rim shot after that.

    Looks like someone else came to the same conclusion you did, Ben:

    As Jamie and Adam might say, that myth is busted.

    I see after Victoria posted about their "bestseller" the geniuses at TWA decided to attack her by posting her Amazon sales ranking.

    Listen, TWA people, before you look like total idiots: Amazon sales rankings mean nothing. Zero. Zilch. By using them to attack someone, you are just showing off your ignorance.

    And here's a Stephen King book with no Amazon rank whatsoever. Guess that means he's a failed author.

    All but two of the books they posted are out of print. In some cases they haven't been commercially available for a decade or more. So of course they have terrible rankings.

    And yet, YOU, Victoria, rank quite highly, at all times, in every way, and are always so available to grateful writers. Thanks for all you do, and for all you write. Truly, you kick ass.

    I'd also like to thank The Write Agenda for all they do, and for all they write. If it wasn't for those silly, hairbrained screwballs, I might have forgotten to come here and mention how much I adore Victoria every time she posts.

    Thanks, TWA!

    Interesting point: what on earth do they hope to gain from a boycott, then? Are they seriously asking people to boycott second-hand bookshops?
