<<I wasn't aware that we'd established a bar for writers to pass over before they are deemed worthy of discussion here, but if so perhaps you should go back over the digests of the past few weeks. You may want to do a retroactive purge of a hundred or so folks we've mentioned.>>

I wouldn't want to purge anybody. Mine was a comment about the literary quality of Grafton's and Paretsky's work. And yes, I do consider Millhone and V.I. to be losers, as well as lost. I don't dislike either series. They are entertaining. But here we normally discuss things more substantial, more lasting. Not by decree, but by some consensus of interest.

In any case, my apologies if I offended you personally.
