ISP nukes watchdog site at scammer’s request.

As so many other sites are reporting, Barbara Bauer called up the ISP hosting the Absolute Write web site and complained because AW lists her as number 3 on the list of the 20 Worst Agents, in terms of taking people's money and not selling their work (or "selling" only to vanity publishers that also take people's money). Not too surprising, I suppose, but what is surprising and even shocking is that the ISP chose to respond by pulling the plug on AW with only one hour's notice!

Complete details are here if you're interested. Hopefully, the online writing community will make their voices heard, as outlined here, and new writers will be spared the experience of tossing their work and their cash into Barbara Bauer's lap.
