American writers are striking back at producers on a new website,

Open only to American Writers' Guild members, it is a message board where writers can vent their fury about forced re-writes, development delays and lack of credit.

As the LA Times reports, there are plenty of postings giving positive comments about Hollywood execs, but the grumbles tend to be more eye-catching.
One writer groused about executives who took it upon themselves to rewrite scenes or even rework a movie's climax: "He'd changed the antagonist to one of the minor characters as a cool twist — that made about as much sense as revealing that Toto was really the Wicked Witch of the West."
