There’s been something bugging me about this Dark Cabal site that I mentioned a couple days ago. Reading Nick’s take got me to thinking.

Now that I’ve had time to read over some more entries I’m thinking:

You’ve gone to all this trouble to be anonymous and super-secret about your identities… so why aren’t you taking advantage of that and really critiquing the field, you know, real balls-to-the-wall taking to task of issues that deeply bother you, in a sweet brutal style?

Instead, there’s very much just a sense of “I like this story, read it. Only vote for good stories. I don’t like these new kewl stories.”

The end.

I’m not sure why you’d go to all of this trouble unless you had something really witty and dynamic to say, something you thought would get you so ostracized by the writers and editors of SF/F that you had to hide behind a screen name.

Anything less is just silly. Why not owe up to it?
