Look at the three books below.
Which one would you read?
Would you choose a particular book over the other because you felt one was "beneath you"?
Open Salon does not do that. It welcomes everyone to express themselves with their point of view.
There is no elitism on Open Salon.
The motto is diversity not segregation.
We choose what we want to read and write.
If you don't like the platform then I just do not know what to say.
It's called freedom of choice.
Thank you Open Salon!
P.S.: And as for the awful slowness that we have been experiencing? Actually it is as slow as a death procession.
I am white knuckling it as Kerry as blogged.
But I am trying to deal with this for as you see Linda has a lot of flaws too.
So what are we? Chopped liver?
I like the mix here and have always resented the divide between the new or amateur writers and the so-called "pros".
Some of the best writing that I have ever read has contained a few errors and some of the most dead awful dreck has complied with all of the rules.
This is one place where everyone has a chance to write, to express themselves, and to tell their stories.
