“First they ignore you, then they laugh at you, then they fight you, then you win.”
If you follow Writer Beware, Absolute Write etc., you’ll notice that Tom Dark has quite a flurry of activity going on. Many of the recent postings have caused some people, like Lisa L. Spangenberg, to launch into “protection” and “salvation” mode; otherwise, they would just ignore Tom Dark . . . they’re not.
Dark, in a couple of very astute Twitter postings, has pointed out a couple of the shortcomings of Victoria Strauss, her followers and other like-kind sites. They attack, criticise, call you names (i.e. “crazy”) and defuse . . . yet, they never respond to the claims against them. For example:
You can’t “deny” that Victoria Strauss, A.C. Crispin & Writer Beware failed to report the publishing SCAM perpetrated by their own attorney. See John Steinbeck Family Defrauded by Writer Beware™ & SFWA Attorney: The 2007 Scam that Writer Beware™ Didn’t Report . . . Why?
You can’t “deny” that Victoria Strauss, A.C. Crispin & Writer Beware failed to prove that American Book Publishing was subject to a “police investigation.” Which leads one to believe that Strauss may have another hidden agenda. See American Book Publishing: No Case, No Criminal Contact & No Legal Action Taken.
You can’t “deny” the fact that Victoria Strauss and others were “non-vindicated” defendants in the Bauer vs. Glatzer case. See Bauer vs. Glatzer et. al. – Summary of Allegations Against the Named Defendants
“Delay is the deadliest form of denial.”
