@11435642@twitter That post about torture by synergy was by Jeff Jarvis. AWL's commenting system refused to recognize me. Ah, how soon they forget.
Very good and thorough account of torture by synergy.
I'm happy to tell more. I refused to sign the managing editor's contract at Time Inc. because it included a shut-up clause. Very unjournalistic, don't you think?
One added anecdote to complement yours: A top editor of Time Inc. used to calculate the grade-point average of our reviews, contending that we were, indeed, too negative. And you're quite right about the Pretty Women review.
