What I want to know is, is anyone taking their name off for any other reason than the presence of JK Rowling?

That’s why Boylan retracted, what about other people, who are they complaining about?

I very much dislike the idea that the we shouldn't associate with ideas because of who holds them.

If Donald Trump were ever to have a good idea, unlikely as that might be, I'd want to support it, notwithstanding the fact that he either came up with it or just supported it.

Whole thing sounds kind of whiney to me.

And who knew - or cares - that Harpers is still being published?

And supporting an idea shouldn’t be taken to mean supporting the person, but I think that’s the default.
