‘‘The role of critic has become just one more sinecure passed around among our self-appointed mandarinate, who understand neither popular art nor the people who enjoy it, and whose critical efforts are devoted largely to reinforcing their mandarin status.

The role of ‘internet administrator’ is rapidly becoming another, with the added mandarin cachet of almost total anonymity outside the field and almost total power within it.’’
