Scalzi vs Black Matrix

You’ve probably read and rolled your eyes at that post by John Scalzi on his Whatever blog and the response from Black Matrix, which you can read here, so I don’t mind if you roll your eyes at this mention and move on.

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.
