Unbelievable!

Instead of taking (from my above post) the suggestion to contact customer service and ask them to delete her self-promotional posts, she zones in on the fact that customers report self-promoting authors. I am beginning to question her sincerity that she is trying to delete her shameless self promotion posts.

Mentioning to authors that they are in the wrong forum simply doesn't always work. Verna is certainly a classic example of that! She is not new. Her older posts have been deleted by Amazon as they were a violation of the TOS. She has been told over and over that self-promotion is only allowed in the Meet Our Authors (MOA) forum.

Verna~

A lot of people will report abuse when an author self promotes. Especially authors who have been told before and continue to do it. The best thing you can do is stop posting here and delete your posts.

And if you followed cathy's instructions your posts will delete.

How many have you sent to report us? I couldn't care less if someone promoted their book. I might mention they were in the wrong forum if I knew they were, but I would not report them.

You said, " I couldn't care less if someone promoted their book."

I don't believe that I took it the wrong way.

Good luck with your email to customer service :-)

I agree. And it is too easy to delete that I don't believe she can't delete her posts.

Verna,

it's hard for us to believe this. It's super easy to delete posts, but mostly - you keep coming in, promoting your book, and saying you tried to delete the promotion. It's the latter that makes me believe you're trying to game us, which clearly isn't working. Please, stop.

You can't delete other people's replies to you, only your own posts.

In reply to an earlier post on Aug 30, 2012 1:23:14 PM PDT
If you're trying to delete someone else's posts, you can't.

You can only delete yours. If your post is in reply to someone else, you can still delete it.

Pot, meet kettle.

Bottom line is we have all seen this spiel from you before, though not all of us posted to you previously. This does not endear you to us, and that you continue playing the injured party makes it more annoying.

You need to take responsibility for your failure to abide by Amazon's Terms of Service, which you have been told of many times. Blaming people here is not a mature thing to do.

Odd. You don't like rudeness yet appear to be fine with many of your own rude replies.

<<the last you will hear from me.>> You keep saying that but keep returning anyway with false claims of ignorance and defensiveness about the responses to you. Just stop already.

She's back on the other thread again, now. The erotic/romance one that she totally derailed.
