Angry, angry people

It amazes me how angry people get about indie publishing. Check out the anonymous comments on J.A. Konrath's latest post for an example. Sure, Joe's blog tends to push buttons a bit. That's evident. But why all the nasty, bitter rage? As I said in the comments, if you don't think indie publishing is the way to go, that's your prerogative. Go submit to traditional publishers and don't worry about it. But for heaven's sake, don't personally attack people who are interested in indie publishing, suggest that all indie authors are idiots and illiterates, and generally act like an ass. It's not good for your karma or your blood pressure. And if you're not interested in indie publishing, what do you care what other people do, anyway?

Seriously, some people need to learn to relax.
