Megan McArdle p4wned by own commenters

What if you were M.A., bitched and whined about editors doing their job, and then your own fans kicked your ass in the comments section?

I deal a lot with editors — in particular, one or two very, very picky editors. They ask a stupid amount of questions, put in a stupid amount of clarification queries, and, quite frankly, occasionally make me fight tooth and nail not to get my work spiked. Why should M.A. be any different when she writes something stupid?

    Schadenfreude can be a wonderful thing.

    Yes – she did deserve it, and so does everyone else who doesn’t submit their stuff to peer review or goes off and says something stupid. I get schooled often – and I learn from it. It makes me a better writer and I come back again. I stopped taking it personally a long time ago.

  2. Yes: I dunt know whut I’m talking about, therefor everybody else eez stoopid.”
