    Even separating the artist from the work, the fact is that we all need some way to decide which of the flood of books, etc, is worth our time.

    I'm reminded of the story that the astronaut program came up with all sorts of tests of no evident relevance (e.g. see who would hold their feet in ice water the longest) because they simply had too many qualified candidates. Think of "author isn't an asshole" as my ice-water test.

    On the Internet, nobody knows if you're a dog... but everybody knows if you're a jackass.
