- First we had the anti-meangrrl-Goodreads-reviewer stalker site allegedly set up by self-publishing authors, sparking a rampant, recursive and blithely hypocritical GR-bullying meme..
- The Chick Lit Girls went after an author who revealed they charge fees and suffered under an internet dog pile (which I guess I was part of).
- Then Rotten Tomatoes had to close a movie to comments for the first time ever due to virulent attacks against anyone posting negative reviews about a Batman movie.
I think it is time to take the dog for a long walk, have a couple of G & Ts, and hope the tomorrow will be another day. Perhaps one in which all the teacups are not rattling with self-important storms of hissy outrage because some stranger posted some less-than-sparkly comment about a book or movie on the internet.
