This does not contribute to the conversation in any way, but I just want to say that the business side of things depresses me. Sometimes I love the folks at RRL where it's all in the spirit of free. Not that I don't think writers shouldn't be able to earn money from their work, of course. I'm sure everyone starts out that way, like young music bands, who are there to explore and create, and are grateful for every gig, every fan, every clap from the audience. But then once you 'go pro'... well, then it gets to your head. Power corrupts. When you have nothing, you're fearless. When you have something, you start to feel afraid, and then you resort to underhanded tactics, and you maybe sometimes even wonder what has happened to that young artist who wanted nothing more than to please, but it's too late now... I don't use facebook, but I lurk, and they have somehow managed to create an atmosphere of censorship there (as well as 'self-censorship', which is really scary if you think about it -- because, uh, North Korea is like that, you know) Why is this bad? It kills conversation, and without conversation we're mindless sheep. But mindless sheep are good for consumerism, you see, if you're a product-owner. What can we do, then? Well, we can create conversations here. We speak up. We promote honestly and transparency. We be the change and fill the genre with the positive, constructive and welcoming energy it needs.
