Someone is an asshole:

Unacceptable.

Who the fuck underlines entire paragraphs in blue ballpoint pen IN A LIBRARY BOOK‽‽‽‽‽

Fortunately, the library has about five more un-checked-out copies.

Wow, fuck them. Although I've also seen orange highlighter, which is an abomination even in your own book.

I don't know, but someone did something similar in bold black ink in a book that I'm currently attempting to read. And, since my library does not have other copies and I don't feel like waiting several days for a new copy to come in from somewhere else, I'm stuck with it. *sigh*

My father (who is a librarian) says that he sees the "moral degeneration of America" less in terms of the "big" sins that are usually discussed in relation to that phrase -- divorce, adultery, homosexuality, etc. etc. etc. -- and more in terms of the "little" ones. During his professional life, photocopying and otherwise reproducing the contents of a library book has gotten easier and less expensive, consistently, by orders of magnitude. At the same time, defacement of library books has gotten much more common.
