THE GOLDEN RULE AS TAKEN FROM BAMBI

"If you can't say something nice...don't say nothing at all."

Every book does not appeal to every reader. I just read a post about an author trashing another author's book.
Why would an author do this? After reading the adversarial exchanges between some authors and reviewers I have to shake my head...
It seems facebook and the Internet gives us the anonymity so we are able to feel entitled to take those cheap shots.
Would people say the same things face to face, I wonder.
I'm going to take a page from TOOLOOSE'S book. As a cat and being easily distracted, he learns from them and then lets these things go.
So TOOLOOSE do you have any wise words for us?


MY BOK ALIEN SPAZE MONKEEZE IS NUT FER EVERYONE.
IT IS HARD TO WRIT EZPECIALLY WITH NO APOZABLE THUMBS.
AL I CIN SAY IZ BE NIZE TO EACH UTHER.

I guess that's it in a nutshell. Be nice.

Very good Jen!

Okay, I'll be nice. Or mice. Jen is funny.

I do think anonymity is the disastrous side of the internet. Just read the comments on any controversial news article and you'll feel like all the nuts have been let out of the jar at once.

Preach it, Sister!

Sometimes I wonder, do these people want to SELL books or not?
