I’ve seen this all over the internets since yesterday, but it can’t hurt to pass it on once more. Barbara Bauer, one of the agents named on Writer Beware’s list of the twenty worst literary agents, has managed to get Absolute Write temporarily shut down; see Teresa Nielsen Hayden’s explanatory post on Making Light, and Miss Snark’s two most recent posts.
I’m not an Absolute Write regular, but I think it’s idiotic that the ISP pulled the site, and Bauer’s attempt to use the (equally idiotic) DMCA as a weapon is beyond mind-boggling.
Here’s hoping for the quick recovery of Absolute Write and all its messageboards.
