So I finally made Rosa's Wiki entry. I kept it as "adminly" as possible.

I hated writing this. I tried so hard to keep things neutral that I think I intentionally watered it down too much. On the other hand, if I start writing virtol, I have a habit of not STOPPING. I'll let you guys determine weather or not this was written well enough.

I'm leaving this public because when I write about someone in a sense like this, I figure they at least have a right to know something's being written about them, and they have a right to know it first hand. At least, they have a right to have the option to find out about it first hand, instead of "oh, did you hear".

The FESS administration has never given me reason to doubt its motivations. Thus, the (re)actions of the renegade faction in question strike me as acts of bad faith, a slight against management by the talent. It is all well and good for 'ficcers to take their destiny into their own hands if the administration of a trusted archive is bad, but ... to do it with no coherent reason? That makes us all look bad, and I will not countenance it.

Hmm...aside from what Ms. Iris said, Rosa, Summer, et. al. are not exactly the only 'ficcers to have been rubbed the wrong way by FESS' administration. I can easily name 2 who left FESS because they didn't like the way it was run, although in the case of one, he left fairly quietly (I'm the only one who noticed his absence). Now, I won't say anything more than that, since this is a public entry, but all I'll say is that some people may have legitimate reasons to distrust the administration of FESS.

It doesn't really matter, anyways...some people like posting their work up on message boards, others don't. FESS may be a great place for those who like hanging around on forums, but those who don't will go to FFn or wherever. Thus, if you'd like to castigate the "ficcers of old" for anything, you might as well do so on account of something other than their dissatisfaction with a place that does not suit their tastes.

Explain that.

Like I said, this is a public entry...to be blunt, the people I referred to above discussed their grievances over PM or AIM, and expected that I'd keep it private. Catch me on AIM, or e-mail, or somewhere where we can talk without the whole world seeing us, and I'd be happy to elaborate...
