Responding to Internet Trolls Productively
Author and Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers of America President John Scalzi has found a creative and productive way to respond to trolling on his blog. Every time a troll uses a particular name, Scalzi will donate $5 to some great charities. He’s also had a number of people pledge him more money. Read more about his awesome response on the Guardian.
Love, Poetry & Other Things
February is a good time for me to read some Neruda. I’ll be picking up Pablo Neruda’s 100 Love Sonnets this week. I’m sure it will make some lovely reading leading up to Valentine’s Day next week. I’ll post a review and a discussion of my favorite passages next week.
Well, it’s a brief post. I know, but I wanted to share just a few things. And, before I leave, I’d like to leave you with my favorite passage from one of my favorite poems of all time Annabel Lee by Edgar Allan Poe.
