I keep reading about post-Nazis and being confined to a writers' ghetto on some Amazon sites. I haven't experienced this.  What is all the brouhaha?

In one sense, this is what you have posted this in.

The concept, I believe, derives from that fact that on many (if not all) public forums set aside a separate forum for indie writers.

On the one hand, the establishment of a dedicated forum might be considered a privileged benefit, as it permits the aggregation of topics of interest to authors and the free exchange of views among peers.

On the other hand, it might be considered a blatant act of segregation to keep the unwashed masses of self published kooks and their annoying and desperate acts of random promotion away from the decent people.

;D

Being placed in a ghetto has its ups and downs. On the one hand, it hurts to be discriminated against. On the other hand, the history of ghettos is that some flourish attracting outsiders into them for services and products. I prefer to think of the writers corral in the Land Whose Name Must Not Be Mentioned as more of an Middle Eastern Souk, a thriving bazaar of products that will draw all with the richness of products for sale therein. ;)

If writers are hanging out some place, I want to be there too! I like talking with other writers.

We don't have any ghettos in my neck of the woods, but what we do have is trailer parks, lots and lots of trailer parks...
