If you had to single out one book as having done the most damage to F&SF, which one would you pick?
, I'm nominating Roger Elwood as the person who did the most damage to the field. He produced a huge number of mediocre (except that they had Lafferty stories) original anthologies, and the non-theme original anthology market hasn't recovered even though it's been decades.

In the original thread, a number of people nominated _Atlas Shrugged_ as the most damaging book, but I can't see much influence from it. What am I missing?
