Wow, that is so precious! I'll come up with a proper "Why I Should Be Boycotted" comment for that post after I work on some more homework and go to my one class of the day.

I just read the "Reluctant Authors" blog, and I laughed so hard my cat got offended and went away. All I can say is, in a battle of words, writers make deadly enemies. Y'all are hilarious!

Interesting that there hasn't been a peep out of TWA all week...

Oops. I mistakenly responded to your post. I was actually responding to the "League of Reluctant Adults" post in which they asked people to post comments about why they should be boycotted. I'll be commenting directly to that post since all the cool people are doing it, too.

I suppose the main point remains. I know what you mean about Writer Beware. I am happy that I discovered Writer Beware very early in life (thirteen), early enough that I would be aware of how things worked before I was old enough and advanced enough in my writing endeavors to start submitting and looking for agents/publishers. I haven't been doing as many scammer-related posts anywhere lately. The whole debacle with The Write Agenda is making me consider starting that up again.

I've also showed appreciation over the years by purchasing books by the Writer Beware founders and people who have done similar work. I own three of Victoria Strauss's books (one used because it was purchased before the new editions of Arm of the Stone and Garden of the Stone were published), one of Ann Crispin's, and three of Uncle Jim Macdonald's (two of them with Debra Doyle). And thanks to the boycott lists, there are more than a few more must-read authors I either forgot about or hadn't been aware of before now.

ETA: Comment for League of Reluctant Adults is now posted.

Yeah, that was the "nugget" I posted earlier. I was dumbfounded by their audacity in filing that complaint. I'm aware that nothing that group does should surprise me, but I'm old and this type of behavior still gives me an initial 'WTF!' moment.

They've now posted one of their "rebuttals" on their blog.

I've updated our original blog post to reflect new info on the connections between The Write Agenda and Turnaround Media. Turnaround Media is definitely maintaining TWA.

by strange coincidence TWA came up in a search recently (an AW search). So they're getting hits off the AW name.

Enjoyed reading a few 'articles'. very, em, entertaining.

ps, what's all that 'Disney stole my pirate ideas' stuff? sounds wacko.

I see they're deleting comments on their FB page. I guess this means I won't get an answer as to whether or not wearing a paper bag over my head was optional or required attire for the book burning...

I think they now have too many potential boycottees to efficiently maintain their boycott list. Doesn't mean we all should stop trying to get on there.

Their Twitter feed was last updated on the third, then vanished completely a couple of days ago. The vanishing act is slow though, and there is still the ridiculous website... It's interesting to see where their priorities are in cleaning up behind themselves.

I was thinking about this and wondering whether the onslaught of negative attention we've generated would prevent Write Agenda adding any of us to the boycott list. Maybe, maybe not. Dunno. But it wouldn't make me stop trying to get on the list.

But then, anyone with enough presence of mind to perform a search on Write Agenda will find this thread. This is good.

Oh, no! It looks like their list (noted as updated today, Oct. 8) is now drastically shorter rather than longer. Guess we'll all have to try even harder now to get on there.

Okay, so now people are calling the pound sign (you know, the number symbol: #) a hashmark?

Tweeted, and used the pound sign. Still don't completely understand why the world needs effin' Twitter, but there it is.

Yeah, boycotting John Scalzi is a sure way to make no friends and influence no one. Except to boycott TWA's website.

Good one.

And I'm STILL not on that list - drat it!
