Grumblegrumble: And a Happy Valentine’s Day to You!

Grumblegrumble: And a Happy Valentine’s Day to You!

I hope that your VD is wonderful and — for those of of a certain age, for whom that acronym has a whole other meaning — that VD and STDs ne’er shall meet.

So do you want to know how I’m celebrating St. Valentine’s?

Sending out DMCA notices.

Yup! I have my first pirate!

Arr, matey! Prepare to be boarded!

Over a freaking $0.99 story. Really? You couldn’t spare a buck, but you could spare the time to convert the file, upload it to two different archives, and post about on at least one more? Clearly your time isn’t worth much, if stealing $0.35 out of my pocket is such a worthwhile investment.

Woohoo.

Ah, well. As my grandmother was wont to say, “If you’re going to get screwed, you may as well lay back and enjoy it.”

  1. Blimey. You know, 99 cents is a ridiculously good price, considering what traditionally published books will cost at retail.

    I guess the reason for doing so, sadly, is to get content to sell ads. That’s why as soon as one of these sites is shut down, two more spring up in its place.
