Dorothea has better luck than I attracting people’s interest in a project. Someone is going to help her building indexing software.
She also wrote:
I admit I’m now open to the charge of “stop energy” on the RDFPF project (and I suspect Bb’s said as much privately, which is okay). But to me, the RDFPF is a pretty good example of a windmill to tilt at—I still don’t think Bb is going to kill a giant, but she might come up with some really cool new twists in lances.
Actually, I haven’t said anything of this nature to anyone. Whatever I would say in private about Dorothea, I would be just as comfortable saying in public to Dorothea. Besides, I despise the term ‘stop energy’ because it’s basically a put down, used against people who don’t agree with you, by people who don’t have the wit to find a better argument. It’s right up there with the phrase, those who promote hatred used to justify censorship.
Dorothea has a right to her opinion, and I have a right to ignore it, or not. There is no ‘stop energy’. What killed the Poetry Finder was the lack of ‘start energy’, and that was my own doing.
