Hi cmbs. I'm sorry to hear this. Here, we do care, and I think part of the fun of participating in this community is that other people do care what you do or what you think. You are free to disagree, of course, but please let's not stretch personal anger or disagreements into personal attacks.
You'll also be glad to know that I don't intend to post any more books here. It's all so extremely unimportant. It's not worth the drama, the accusations, the hurt feelings.
I know there are a lot of people who appreciate your efforts, to whom your book uploads are not
unimportant. But I respect your decision. And it's good we agree that all of this is not worth hurting other people's feelings.
