This post was blogged on a fellow author’s site and I thought it was a good reminder. Personally I always try to remember the rule of Thumper
The author of this particular post is right in essentially saying that everyone has different tastes in books, movies and artwork but we should all remember that the the people behind the works have feelings.
It’s o.k. to dislike it, it’s even o.k. to leave a review saying you didn’t like it. But doing it privately rather than publicly, and treating others as you would wish to be treated is a something to keep in mind.
Take a read through. There is never a bad time for good manners.
