AW down thanks to a bitter agent

I’ve been frequenting AbsoluteWrite.com since only recently. Their forums and articles are priceless. And now they’re gone thanks to one Barbara Bauer. Basically, Bauer wasn’t happy that she was on a list of the twenty worst agents that was posted to the site. She rang up and complained, the host freaked out at all the legal ramifications and shut the site down. For a full wrap, click here. A whole site with a massive member base is now struggling to find a new host thanks to Bauer. And so, bloggers from AW have Google bombed Barbara Bauer with a link to the list so when you type Barbara Bauer into Google, the list comes up. Sucked in.

Update: Spread the word by posting the news about Barbara Bauer and use the below technorati tag in the post. This tag is one of the hottest on the site in the past hour.

  1. Let’s hope the publicity encourages her writers to look for a new agent; it sounds like she deserved her listing. She was an idiot to complain, don’t you think?

  2. Absolute Write is back up again. ;) It seems that Stephanie Cordray wanted a popular writing site of her own and tried to wipe out the competition.

  3. Amazing how one person can wreak such havoc. I just started lurking at AW and I was about to get up the nerve to introduce myself when it all went capoot.
