Son-of-a-Weizen Posted June 21, 2003 Report Share Posted June 21, 2003 Personally I object to those who carry BB conversations over into other venues such as this with an intent to do harm. That said, it also seems a bit odd that a site like Amazon would actually surrender the name of a reviewer like this. How can Amazon be sure that there is some sort of vendeta at work here? Are they reviewing the back-n-forth at an AAJ thread -- none of which has anything to do with translating skills -- or perusing archived BN threads and studying comments issued by some guy known as "Hardbop"? How are they to know that by revealing the reviewers name an author might not then go off half-cocked and try to settle a score with someone who lives in the same city no less? I'm not implying that Chris would do that....but you can't tell me that there aren't as many petty, vindictive characters out there in the publishing world as there are in any other profession. On second thought....Chris, will you be bringing a 'corked' bat to his apartment... or just your 'ol Yastremski lefty black bat? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
