If you were Ann, would you search around online to find something like this? And if so, would you join? The reason I ask is cause I'm fairly certain either Emily or Greer mentioned this site to her/her people, so it's possible she knows. If so, do you think she's ever dropped by?
Probably not, starrynight, especially after she handed the series over to the ghostwriters. It would be very interesting if she did though and acknowledged it. Has anyone written her lately and mentioned this site?

I think she'd be interested in knowing that so many message boards/communities/blogs have sprang up, with people of varying ages getting together and discussing the characters, the plots, and the influence the books have had on their lives, but I doubt joining or checking them would be her thing. I think she'd be surprised, most of all. That seems to be her general reaction when the continuing popularity of BSC is brought up in interviews and such.

In other places. There used to be several active snark blogs. Most of the blogs nowadays seem to be focused more on nostalgia. There is a snark livejournal community, and it used to get a lot of posts, but not so much anymore.

I really don't like the LJ Snark community. Most of the posters seem to be a little bit too "hehehe I'm so funny cuz i can say mean things"... also, I have this thing about the use of the word "snark". (I know that language changes... but I just hate the phrase "this is my first snark." I'm weird, I know.
I kind of hope AMM drops by sometime. I like to picture her posting under some alias, letting us in on the real motivations of her characters.
