Well isn't this just fan-f'n-tastic

I always had my suspicions. It was always subtle and just beneath the surface. I expected better craft than this.

I'm about three chapters in to book 7 of the Malazan series and Erikson has given up on playing it straight. He'd descended into full-on Canadian Twat Lefty Wet-Dream Political Allegory Theater. A group of Letherii calling themselves the "Patriotists" is running rough-shod over the local populous searching for political dissidents and torturing/disappearing academics and intellectuals.

This better improve quickly or I'll burn the fucking thing in effigy. Christ, how many people have I recommended this to by now? I'm going to have a lot of apologies to write.

What ever happened to the art of Fisking?

It's not to say no one does it anymore, but the concept and use of the term seem to have dropped out of the blogging lexicon.

Every once in a while you'll come across something that resembles a good 'ol fashion Fisking, but the ruthlessness and bile just isn't there like it used to be.
