    Blog posts I need to make time to read and so should you
    maili's no prude but...
    ouch
    having made time to go to rt board I have decided it is a scary place. I think it is best if I don't respond to those posts. In fact after reading a few of them it is prolly best I stay away from that board.

    How can you review books that aren't being published? And should RT turn away money because OMG too many romantica books are wanting to put out ads?

    Gosh the inspirational section is growing too, do you think that has anything to do with the fact there are more being published? hmmmm maybe that is just an act of god and the erotica section is growing just to piss off the good lil 'normal' romance readers.

    And omg how do I protect my children from reading this filth! If you people keep printing this trash I might have to GASP talk to my own kids about sex.

    oy note to self: more time at smartbitches site less time at rt board. Although I still think I am gonna buy a subscription ;)

    hmmm I think I am in a mood cuz I am way annoyed.

    3. buy a subscription- the message board IS a scary place but I don't thing that has anything to do with the magazine itself, really.

    4. Oh, RT boards aren't that bad. OK, Politics board is truly a scary place. It flamed me out off the board, but all in all, other RT boards are not that bad, really?

      Angie - I agree, the mag isn't really anything to do with its boards. I know that some regular posters don't even read the magazine. Oh, wait. I'm referring to myself as well. Ooer.

    5. By mainstreaming these type of books you are saying they are OK which is not a good direction we(maybe not you) want our society to go. I am looking at the whole picture.
      words of wisdom brought to us by mrsmel on the Readers' Roundtable explain more about the evol's of the prono industry aka romantica/erotica

      You are right maili the place isn't that bad, there are nifty sane people there. I just think they are out numbered by the mrsmel's and rostx's.

      Well, mrsmel managed to piss me off with the same quote you used, and then I felt the need to post a comment to LynnK who was defending the judgemental witch. And rostx with all those inane questions drives me crazy, it's like the board was hijacked. I think it's one of the reasons so many have run to blogging.

      Deep Breath--I need to take my own advice--LOL

    7. *laughing* mrsmel is one out of, how many?, 100 regular posters and 400 semi-regular posters? If I remember her posts correctly, she's a semi-regular who enjoys recommending books. So she's not too bad.

      As for rostx, I'm half-convinced that she's the other one who does a similar thing to the General Board last year. The one who has many aliases. :P

      OMG--it's DebbieK. Do you really think she's using all those AKA?

    9. I think that's the first time I've ever been called fab :) Thanks. And I hate trawling around trying to find out what everyone is saying on a subject, so I figured I'd just post all the links myself. That way I can find them again.

    10. At first I was sure rostx was, uh... special

      then I was sure she was a sock

      maybe she is a special smelly sock

      mrsmel can blow me. I honestly have no problem with the word 'porn' it is a whatever. I think words have the value you give them. BUT knowing that it pisses off a great group of people. And that using it, does nothing more than try to hurt them, while you are talking out of the otherside of your mouth about society needing to be nicer and 'cleaner' makes baby jesus cry.

    11. TARA MARIE - DON'T SAY THE NAME!!! Oh, my god. What have you done?! *running in circles, screaming and gibberish hysterically* I'm going home to my blog and pack my bags and abandon my blog for somewhere SAFE!!! I'm leaving you all far behind! *running away*

    12. Maili-- MEA CULPA, MEA CULPA you're right I shouldn't have even mentioned the name. I almost deleted the post--LOL.
