I've only seen a couple people mention anything about a boycot of any kind. I think most of us were just curious about the whole situation more than anything else. I didn't like the way she kept calling the Joe/5th Imperium "The Pirate", but all it did was make me shake my head a bit.

Maybe we should open a thread of "authors who did something or said something I didn't like" so everyone can get in on the action of suggesting we not read specific authors because of something they said instead of whether their work is any good.
If you start it, they will come. People make all kinds of decisions everyday based on things others might consider trivial or silly or whatever.

I haven't been able to read an Anne Perry book (although I do have a few) because her name always brings to mind the brutal murder she commited with a friend when she was 15. Much more serious than calling someone a pirate yes, but I've gotten crap for it from a few people.
