[bksvol-discuss] Re: plesure reading quality&quality standards

I agree with the quality standards. I wasn't referring to that. I was referring 
to all the other things he's said that people have believed. He does have an 
interesting sense of humor, and that's what I was referring to. I do believe 
all books should be held to some kind of standards, and for the most part, I've 
agreed with most of what everyone has said about that. Take care.

  I don't think Guido is kiddin here.  Besides, if he is, then, I'm not.  I 
perfectly agree with sentiments expressed regarding the quality standards 
needing to be more rigorous.

  Oh, Guido, you're full of it! *smile* You're taking advantage of all the 
poor, gullible people on here who don't know you well enough and it's sad! Take 
care.

    Sue and Gisela,  you are perfetly correct.  Romances should be published 
with the same care given to any other categories.  I am not a reader of 
romance,  but it does bug me to no end that readers of the genre feel they have 
to put up with so much low quality c*r*a*p,  just because "it is for enjoyment 
alone!" 

    At the closing of 2004 there is simply no excuse for consistently 
submitting trash-recognition-quality books to the repository. 


    If any volunteer needs assistance in learning how to produce a quality 
etext,  I will be delighted to assist.  If the reco program used is not 
adequate and is too old,  and produces consistent low quality,  the tool needs 
to be replaced.   

    Finally,  if anyone needs more info about  the great Helvetico-Caschubian 
scholar Aloysius Qwantz Schmaltenstein Gavronsky,  please let me know, as most 
of his works are sadly out of print, and even the Appenzell reference library 
has recently moved them from the main stacks to the boiler room,  to make space 
for  the complete English language collection of Better Funeral Homes, and 
Happy Undertaker's Weekly.

    What it says in the validation instructions is rating of errors as
    excellent, good or fair.  That means, and says, word recognition errors
    which means scanning errors.  Scanners do misinterpret words sometimees, but
    what poor quality means is that the book could not be corrected by the
    validator because there was so much missing, or so many places where the
    errors were undecipherable that the validator was unable to correct them and
    has to reject the book.  It has nothing to do with the book itself.  A lot
    of us enjoy light romances.

    Someone clearly stated that if it was light reading,
    like romance, quality was not as important. I for one enjoy reading romance
    and feel that I still deserve quality.



    I may have missed that post but I don't believe that plesure reading should
    nor will be relegated to lower quality standards. The question is what is
    meant by quality? What should be looked at to decide that question from most
    to least importants.
