Whilst researching a screenplay involving the subject of trolling, I've been contacted by numerous authors who have been targeted by what I've termed the Amazon Review Mafia.
These are the people who have set them up as some kind of amateur review police with the aim of monitoring self-published authors and even other reviewers for any evidence of anything from poor grammar to eliciting fake reviews which they then post up on BBR and BBA type forums. An admirable aim for sure but all too often, this results being that said author or reviewer receives anything from a mild rebuke to what some people might even term trolling. Indeed, I have experienced as much myself albeit in part because I didn't succumb to the abuse directed at me.
However, I'm also starting to uncover evidence that they are up to other less savoury activities and as such, I'm keen to hear from any self-published authors or indeed readers who have been targeted by them.
If you have and would like to discuss your experiences, please drop me a line either on this forum or if you would prefer, privately on dougieATdougiebrimson.com
