N_B has a must-read entry up today. So you must read it.
Quick note about the helpfulness. It cracks me up when I ask about a reference I’m not familiar with and someone directs me to a Google search. Several folks have done this. Here’s the thing: I’m pretty familiar with Google. I use it several times a day, mostly to find furry conventions in my area…but I’ve said too much. But seriously, when I ask about a story with which I’m not familiar, I don’t need a link to a Google search. You will acknowledge that whenever you do a search a majority of the results are useless, won’t you? After all, there’s a search engine dedicated to addressing that very complaint.
No. When I ask a question like that, I am wanting ONE salient link. Or, heck, you can put your little fingers to use and type up a quick summary yourself. That is what I’m after. Thanks in advance!
BTW, I know this sounds super-bitchy, and I don’t mean for it sound that way, because I know no insult is intended when I am directed to a Google-search. I know it is helpfulness that is intended. And I am helping now, as well.
