I used google and put in what I thought, were distinctive quote parts in order to find the original writer. If I had found her myself, I wouldn't have asked but contacted her directly, Winterfox. Therefore I thought, her content was somewhere to be downloaded in form of a doc and google might not find it. And it has nothing to do with infringement of copyright or "fair use clause" (though it astonished me, to find the word "fair" in your post <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/delight.gif" alt="" /> ) but simply with a clean way of quoting by naming the originator's name as full source, in the way it was done in the link, I posted.
I don't care, if you consider my wish an insult - and I will continue to speak up if I consider it necessary (you wanted a promise, right? Here it is). Credibility was never my concern - it's not up to me to decide this, but decision or choice of others, and has no impact on me - same goes for backfiring. Keeping silent about what I
think might be descrediting persons who can't defend themselves, because their work is used in the manner you did (without naming them as a source), is cowardice in my eyes - and this weighs far more for me than credibility. Not clear enough?
Ahem; that brings back the horror -- excuse me while I go fetch a bucket into which I will forthwith empty the contents of my stomach...
The people who would cringe at this generally see it for what it really is: angsty whining
Maybe clear enough now? And if still not clear => IMO you use quotes in order to jeer at anonymous persons, make fun of them, jab, insult etc. in a form you might think is witty or intelligent. ("Bitching about" is a favourite expression of yours on other forums, where you claim to write critics). Very unprofessional IMO, because it's not even about the work you claim to review/critic, it's just about yourself - in my words => literary exhibitionism in the vulture and scavenger way some "critics" consider professional, revealing nothing about the work - as it is only a tool for this critic, not the subject. I don't take this seriously, as I choose to make up my own mind about what I dislike/dislike in writing - the style simply nauseates me. No, not necessary to fetch me a bucket, even if we share the same reaction.
If you consider my words an insult - you're welcome to express this. I will still ask - in my language style, with my opinion and my explanation why I ask. Take it or leave it, has no impact on my opinion. As you (for whatever reason) do not want to tell me her name, I can only hope, she sees it herself someday and reacts, so I may be able to read the whole context.
Anything still unclear?
