And do you work better under pressure?

By 'these threads' I was referring to the specific ones you'd bragged about disrupting over on .uk, not meaning anywhere at all.

So it seems...

It certainly concentrates the mind. I have a whiteboard on the wall of the office, and I now count the days down...

Wait, what was that about people becoming friends again and all that? Oh, you didn't mean the apes. What did they ever do to you?

I wanna be like you.
You know it's true
an ape like me
can learn to be, human too!

I don't want to stoop so low as to be a BBA. It's sad that they do seem to garner more attention. I know it doesn't put them in a positive light but they do create a buzz. I'm not a goodie-goodie and I'm not a PC type person but I refuse to act like a dill hole to sell books. I'd rather stick to a positive method.

As an author I know I am not welcome on these Amazon discussions as they are mainly ruled by customers. But I am also a customer. I need to ask a question;

Has anyone gotten a computer virus 'cookies' from clicking links in any of these cheaply created recipe books. Kindles. Most are created this year by 1-3 main authors but it seems they place a false publication date. There's a gang of authors from India and middle east that have no knowledge of cooking... They steal content off the internet, and form other authors; mostly recipes but also self-help... stuff. When they write on their own its just plain 'not good'.

31 cookies and frozen computer today after accepting a free kindle from guy asking for a review and clicking links in this guys book. He uses many phony names to publish. Its also strange that some of his reviewers seem almost like a robot; doing many reviews per day and they all sound the same, some are exact, like a script.

Newest is a Halloween recipe book. After I told him about this and refused to do a review; He then admitted his name is the same first name of another author, the one I know is a crook.

They place a lot of links in their books to webpages and to ClickBank. That is one of Kindle's e-book competitors.
