You are. A LOT of the BS being thrown KS' way was coming from rabid pro-Wars "vs" debaters, who were po-d that she wasn't following in the footsteps of Curtis Saxton (sp?) and deliberately writing her books making the SW universe's technology uber-super-supremely powerful so they could use it as "canon fodder" in the then-ongoing Trek/Wars vs debate.

When she wouldn't play ball, they got all butthurt and took it out on her. There were even rumors of threats.

So she quit, and I can't say I blame her.
