Such power...

It's really things like Penguin trying to aggressively harass a woman out of her domain name and the "for dummies" books' people irrationally destroying an innocent amusing website that disappoint me and make me rethink my opinion about publishers. Naively, I have thought that, since they are so tied to the academic and intellectual community, that publishers [even the big mega-corporate ones] could be trusted a little better than your average money-grubbing business. Obviously not. Of course, it's situtations like these that make me glad to be a librarian. There's a lot of librarians in this world and a lot of us buy books for our institutions and ourselves. Think about your public image, my friends.
