Well, let me see if I get this right. I am no better than Steph for calling her on some of her statements, yet you can presume the defending role and try to slam me.
Steph should be en-titled to her opinion, but not I.
Too all of this rhectoric I say...whatever. You are only picking out what you want to respond too. First of all, I chimed in to say this was not a fair analysis of the BEA, not just the AA sector that was involved. There were non-factual remarks made about times, places, etc. I also focused only on the fact that she should not be so quick to judge everything that happened at a function that even she said she left. As far as content of writing, I didn't get into who can write and shouldn't be out there promoting their work or how they are promoting it. I stated that this practice of knocking those that chose to spend their money to be apart of the BEA for marketing was really un-becoming. As for all the other supportive messages...look at the supporters and you will find an equal amount who were offended. So, yes I can admit that I had a few things to say about her post, I didn't agree with all of it as I stated in the beginning, though there is a small percentage of truth in some of what she said. I have a problem with her tone, her condemnation and over-all attitude. So if that is taking the low road so be it. "It's better to be down under, on the low ground with my feet to hold me steady than trying to float above with no wings."
So, post what you want, play tit-for-tat, I don't care. I still think it was written in bad taste and I stand by that. And, until I see Steph or any others who claim that they are tired of how the business (not to be confused with genre's) is going doing anything different to help change it, I will continue to voice my opinion.
