The Bonfire is a Pyre

Not only were many of the 500 quarter-finalists in the ABNA contest hopelessly flawed by bad grammar, wordiness, editing problems and cliched scenarios such as "a writer finds his muse while reeling from rejection letters;" a plethora of prologues, which violated the rules, and now some of the poor rejected masses got a corrected email saying their pitch eliminated their entries after the first one declared they made it into the 2000 and would get reviews soon. Oh Brother, where art thou?

Amazon sent them a $5 gift card for the mistake. Talk about a sad comedy of errors. Pathetic.

That $5 gift card is probably the only income their writing will ever generate.

Sadly, it's $5 more than many who moved on are worth.

Way to go dipshit... just take all of them down, or did my cussing on YOUR little bloggy disturb you?

No, nothing a twisted fuck like you disturbs me. Are you bored Roper? I took nothing down. Stay in your area, which would be fantasy.

Bozo... you took nothing down? Then where are the comments by Aristophanes? Yeah, you took them down and you damn well know it... I know it because I put them there.

Yorkie, you are such a putz and calling my area fantasy... this is sooooooo funny from someone who buys into the AGW silliness.

Look Roper, try taking your meds before trolling blogs. The comments are on the other post. I'm glad you're studying Greek philosophers, but it looks like your didn't study hard enough for the test. Facts are facts. In AGW, you have none on your side.

Well, I will be damned, for absolutely the first time in your life you are right. Son of a gun.

My bad, please forgive me o mighty guru of the AGW-Hoax

The only hoax on this blog is you Roper. Try to learn some manners and have a little respect for those who know more than you by training and appeal to proper authority.

That's the problem with conservatives: they're rude, condescending, dogmatic and chronically wrong. This may be the first time one has admitted a mistake. Congrats.
