Guys and gals,
Don`t miss Annalee`s review of Spartacus, here:
I believe we have just witnessed a significant cultural event that portends to interesting future developments in this biz/hobby.
I have in the past read statements by SPs, here and elsewhere, that react to a review of them by a client. Sometimes the SP offers a rebuttal of a bad review. Sometimes the SP says nice things about a client in gratitude for a favourable review. But that is not yet an SP reviewing a client, just a reaction. In this case we have an SP that produces a favourable and purportedly objective review of a client, with tongue barely in cheek.
On the basis of what appears to me as a precedent (correct me if I`m wrong), it would be legitimate for this or another SP to produce a negative review of a client, not as a reaction to bad review by that client, but on her own volition. That would be a truly astounding event, turning the tables on the johns who spitefully wield reviews as an instrument of power.
Can this happen? For sure. There are always people who break ranks and march to a different drummer. But it will take an SP with a lot of chutzpah, because part of an SPs service is to make us believe we are all Casanovas, as part and parcel of an all-inclusive fantasy.
