Traveller's Recent Updates

Traveller and 41 other people liked Paul Bryant's review of Artoday:
Artoday by Edward Lucie-Smith
"At smart gallery openings I might well have booed
And my gallery brochure surreptitiously chewed
When those art critics drooled, billed and (yes) cooed
And babbled forth theories increasingly pseud
(And later made purchases financially shrewd)

Thomas Merton
“What I wear is pants. What I do is live. How I pray is breathe.”
Thomas Merton, Thomas Merton: A Life in Letters: The Essential Collection

Brett J. Talley
“I don't understand exactly what's going on, but Goodreads shouldn't be deleting reviews, period. People are smart enough to look at them on their own and make up their mind, and deleting reviews undermines the integrity of the site.”
Brett J. Talley

G.R. Reader
“By deciding what is, and is not, allowed to be discussed in a review,
by removing discussion of social context, and saying that only the
words on the page count, Goodreads is ignoring fifty years of development
of literary criticism, and is engaging in censorship.”
G.R. Reader, Off-Topic: The Story of an Internet Revolt

G.R. Reader
“The Internet is transient. Information can be removed with a couple of mouse-clicks; it is an Orwellian dream. We have been advised, by people who claim to know about these things, that there is no point in protesting against a social network. Whoever owns the network will run it as they see fit, normally to maximize their profit margin. Members who dispute the rules will simply be thrown out. The Terms of Use are written so as not to allow them any recourse.”
G.R. Reader, Off-Topic: The Story of an Internet Revolt

“I agree that it's a shame some books have to suffer ratings that clearly are invalid. However I can't think of a way to prevent it, and I didn't see any ideas in the thread either (I did skim though).

I hope you'll appreciate that if we just start deleting ratings whenever we feel like it, that we've gone down a censorship road that doesn't take us to a good place.”
Otis Y. Chandler
