Participating authors around here have commented that they have done well under the program. As getting into the KOLL via KDP Select is optional and short term, it seems that it would easy for any individual author to judge accurately for themselves.
So I disagree that " the Lending Library is bad for authors" is true in any general sense.
An author is free to not participate if they think it's bad for them, and if they do try it and it proves to be bad after 90 days, then they can choose to stop.
Seems like win-win in many cases, and little risk in others.
