I actually enjoy your posts @phildukephd. Your negativity and can't achieve attitude bring a lot of inspiration to those who know what they are cabable of.
Free books are obviously a very painful subject for you, but the following are facts and will remain facts for the foreseeable future. People download the Hadez out of free books because they like free. Free books lead to solid sales, at least for those of us that are intelligent enough and creative enough to piece the two together. Every single author(like yourself) who shuns free books, ultimately puts a little more money into the pocket of an author out there who embraces them.
So please keep the posts coming. Because if you actually back off of the free book bashing posts to focus on writing for a change, you may sell books. And an author who writes more than he complains and then markets his work to perfection...that's exactly what us winners do not want to see.
