There’s a lot of discussion about how the internet is ruining our manners. It’s so easy to get down on someone when they’re not standing in front of you. Unfortunately, this isn’t anything new to the computer era. Oh, I think in general we are more selfish and less polite as a society but an author saying mean things about other authors is not new. Writerin the North has a fun post about literary insults. It’s a fun read despite the fact that some of them were about Jane Austen. I guess it just goes to show authors never change. Which one was your favorite?
