You know, David, there are now about 150,000 other amazon.com associates
out here reviewing books and making money with orders from our pages. Some
of them, like myself, are reviewing technical communication books.

Your attitude about who owns what and where the money goes does not make
for any sort of likely cooperative arrangement, at least from my
perspective.

I do have reviews up at another review site -- but the owner has the good
sense to realize that he needs to allow the clickthrough to amazon be on my
account, not his.

Excuse me if I seem miffed. I am. Somehow your gee-whiz enthusiasm
doesn't mask what I perceive as a really snide attitude on your part about
the naivete of reviewers.

Diane
