    I just read your comment there, Lauredhel. Well said.

    As to the origin of the problem: AM and BFP are two writers who, with their different strengths and talents, are on many people’s favourites lists. They’ve both been attacked before, and both bear the scars, and are both coming from a place of hurt. It’s not surprising that both have supporters who are lashing out at each other, but it is unhelpful.

    My hope is that once the sturm und drang subsides, the listening can start.
