To summarise, Scalzi had a go at Black Matrix for offering writers a pay rate of 1 cent per 5 words, and called upon writers to boycott them. I’ve had a look at a few of the comments on his and Black Matrix’s blog and it seems pretty clear cut to me. John Scalzi and his ilk should keep their gobs shut.
I could, and in all fairness should elaborate, but instead I’ll do that in the comments. I’m interested to see where the writers and artists on my flist stand on this one.
