rableather's insight:

Well to be honest Rosa there is more than one way to skin a cat. I have been labelled a death eater by Ms Rowling as I was part of the Yes movement. I am also a Harry Potter fan. I bought her books before she became so obnoxious. I can't change that. What I can do is never buy another. Should I need / want to read her work Ill borrow them from someone else. I will never give her another penny, but neither would I deprive a child from the magic of Harry Potter.
