“Sophronia Flex” Commentary Demonstrates the Need for Caution with Writer Beware
*UPDATE by author
The illustrious “Sophronia Flex” has reared her/his ugly head once again. This “Sophronia Flex” has appeared in different forms (and forums). Just like in Anthony Trollope’s “Barchester Towers.” To wit: “Rebellion had already reared her hideous head.”
September 26, 2010, “Sophronia Flex” gave Terry Eagleton, author of “Literary Theory: An Introduction,” a 5 Star review on Amazon. There have been no further reviews since that time from “Sophronia Flex.”
January 23, 2008, “Sophronia Flex” posted a “Consumer Comment” in this forum relative to some unsubstantiated claims against AuthorHouse. In addition, “Sophronia Flex” praised the work of WriterBeware.
Most concerning of all in “Sophronia Flex’s” commentary above is this (new) unsubstantiated claim: “their premises were being raided by the FBI….” This ranks up there with the claim made by Writer Beware: “American Book Publishing has been the focus of at least one police investigation.” The Write Agenda has proven that this allegation made by Writer Beware, Victoria Strauss and Ann “A.C.” Crispin is false. For more information, see:
If there is anything in this commentary by “Sophronia Flex” that we do agree with is this: “Let the writer beware.” We would strongly encourage “Sophronia Flex” to produce evidence that American Book Publishing was “raided by the FBI.” Otherwise, “Sophronia Flex” should 1) admit that this this is a lie, and 2) encourage Victoria Strauss, Ann “A.C.” Crispin and Writer Beware to admit that their claims regarding American Book Publishing are also lies.
With all sources of information available to us today, it’s sometimes difficult to know which are based on facts, to discern whether false information was provided or whether the whole story was communicated. While some Web sites, and their commentators, began as providers of information based on facts and or unbiased opinions, many over time have been corrupted either in whole or in part to a point of view or ideology. On this page (click here) you will find a list of sources that have been shown to promote progressive ideologies, open ended commentary and unsupported statements. Some are presented as non-biased or based on facts; others do not. Through an examination of the information these organizations and individuals offer, including their sources of funding, parent organizations, leadership, agendas, goals and content of the information presented and based on comparison with the facts as determined by the primary source material as it becomes available, many warrant further review. The objective is to encourage you to evaluate these sources of information with a discerning eye, become a skeptic and utilize the C.R.A.P test to evaluate postings, articles and information. C.R.A.P. is an acronym for Currency, Reliability, Authority and Purpose and Point of View.
