(no subject)

Have spent most of Sunday night and yesterday reading comments to this post, in which author Diana Gabaldon informs us that fanfic is illegal and immoral and likens fic writers to thieves pedophiles and husband stealers.

The comments are similarly entertaining; a lot of people who haven't heard of fanfic, and who can't seem to grasp the idea that fanfic =/= plagarism.

DG has a second post up - linky - which smacks of damage control.

From the comments, bookshop posts in defence of fanfic.

Seriously, after wading through all those comments (537 on the first DG post as I type this) my head hurts.
