    in light of there being recent reports of people trading for faves and guilting for reads... I have the right to refuse a story that has been brought to light as one that has earned its faves out of anything other than the free will of the readers.

    yes, as group administrator you most definitely have the right to accept or refuse work at your discretion.

    I think it's fine you've started this group, Meg. Ten is hardly the benchmark anymore, if benchmarks must be in place, and surely they should in any community, I suppose.

    As for trading for favs, I don't really care if people do that or don't. I think everyone would agree we're all just here to read good writing and maybe offer something others will enjoy. Everything else is so far down the list one can hardly spot it without binoculars.

    Have a round on me, folks. And keeping writing stories.
