Ought to have used, “set him up to fail…”


FWIW, the official Dune audiobooks are awesome. Full cast productions that eliminates most of the “he said” “she said” bits.


I read about these scams, where someone gets a “creative” to put in a lot of time/money into a project just so they can scam a relatively small amount of money out of it (either by using the results of their labor or skimming a bit of money off what the person is spending to do the work), and it really pisses me off. It’s one thing to try to make money off a book you don’t own and deprive the author/right’s holder of income, but the monstrous willingness of a scammer to destroy someone’s life (who can afford to spend several months without pay?) just to gain a relative pittance…


Small typo in last paragraph. Wasn’t sure how to inform so posting here: “ACX platform said him up to fail”
