The truth about Barbara Bauer

So awhile back, Barbara Bauer tried to get SF Interesting Person and Tor Editor Teresa Nielsen Hayden fired. Bauer was threatening to sue Tor for libel for something TNH had said in a private capacity.

TNH had linked to the Writers Beware 20 Worst Agents list, which Barbara Bauer is on. (She's third!) Writers Beware is an organization loosely associated with the SFWA.

Bauer has, by dint of being annoying, gotten a respected web site which talks about publishing scams shut down. They're busy recovering and such, but... still.

So! Barbara Bauer. Sterling person. Honest.

(This is the same process by which people got 'miserable failure' linked to 'George W. Bush' in Google. Unless Google did that manually.)
