There are authors that use their sites and bulletin boards to promote friendship and to form sisterhoods amongst their readers, like Susan Elizabeth Phillips, Jennifer Crusie, the ladies from Squawk Radio and many others. Then there are others who allow all kinds of nasty fights and disputes to go on in their sites; some even join in and promote them!
And, of course, the bloggers. Most smart and funny, others vile and with so little class it’s a wonder they can even put a coherent sentence together. These are the ones that attack and criticize everyone that has the misfortune to cross their paths. Makes you wonder what kind of “real” lives these people lead that they feel compelled to spew so much hatred around.
In between all of this, the readers, who I think are the ones that have the most to loose.
Maybe it would’ve been better if Romance Land hadn’t moved into the 21st century and found the WWW. At least then, the community could’ve been able to maintain the dignity and class it seems to have once possessed.
