Today's Al-Jimzeera talking points
include discussion of the great F0etry scandal
and a link to this post from our old Foe, Janet Holmes, who says to Moby
Well, I've said my piece. You can feel free to run or supress [sic] it; I can probably find another place
to get the message across.
-- Janet Holmes
There are so many fun things I could say in response to her exchange with DLJ. Let me mention just a few of them:
Because I have access to most of her email (Boise State is holding out on a few crucial documents) since the early days of Foetry, I can tell you that Janet is the master of suppression.
Her efforts to silence this site included running a mailing list trying to raise money to out me. Would she have been eager to create a legal fund for anyone else if she weren't involved? Doubtful.
She "outed" multiple people she thought to be the person behind Foetry with libelous claims and nasty innuendo about many poets, including her own author, Aaron McCullough. Nice editor you got there, Aaron.
She has lashed out at nearly every journalist that covered the Foetry story. (The funny thing is that the media attention came about BECAUSE of her outing me).
She is the only person to have blocked all emails sent from foetry.com from reaching officials at her employer: Boise State University. She claims emails called for her "firing." I have copies of all emails sent before she ordered the techies to bounce them. I don't think even one of them called for her firing; several people called for her to step down as Ahsahta's editor. At least Ramke had the decency.
There's more, of course, but I'll save them for later.
But let me say this:
One thing that delights me to no end is the blossoming friendship between Michael White and Janet Holmes. They are perfect for each other, but I'm concerned that someone's gonna get hurt in the end. :twisted:
