In February the blog 'Bitch Envy' opened to make with some anonymous snark (see cache) about romance-genre goings on, and by March 23rd it had come to this. A very rapid case of blogger's remorse. I think extremes are dangerous things. Bloggers often thrive on drama but tend to rest on firmer ground. Beneath all the snarks, sparks and bitchery I think most of us do, in fact, have an affirmative goal. So as for "I don’t know how people can maintain blogs filled with so much mean and not be physically sick." 'Mean' may be an active ingredient, but so--underneath it all--is meaning well. If you lose that not only are there no taboos but also no reason for breaking them, and the whole thing is indeed pointless.
