To: My fellow Readers and Authors..(and The whole "AMAZON REVIEW MAFIA!").
I never wrote a thread before, but THIS subject caught my attention, and I HAVE been bullyed for liking a book/Author they didn't like. If WE don't stop Cyber Bullies, they WILL continue to bully, demean, hurt, destroy peoples lives without a thought. These are people that have NO respect for others. No love in their hearts, and reading its gazzilion comments, it scared me that this group of people may have ANY power on Amazon's reviews threads. We should report to Amazon ANY and ALL Cyber Bullies. This way, we can put a STOP to this ridiculous REVIEW MAFIA!
Wha??? Wha??? Yes, I know..I know..ridiculous people..*sighs*..
If you're an avid READER (like me), or a targeted SP Author...let's put a STOP to these people's cyber bullying. Let's NOT respond or even acknowledge their mean/jealous comments on our favorite books or favorite Authors. DO NOT STOP buying a book based on their notes/reviews. That's EXACTLY what they want from us. WHO are these people? Do WE want to BE like them? Petty, mean, and jealous individuals that have NO respect for a Human being? These are NOT (I'm sure of it!), people that we would accept in our homes or near our family, right? So WHY even acknowledge their negative comments? WHY not buy a book/movie/music based on WHAT they write? Exactly! NO! Let's not give any more power to these people here on Amazon, and at any website. Let's STOP this immature game of callig Authors/Readers names, of writing hurtful and damaging things, of letting them WIN. If each one of us, book lovers, or Authors (SP or not) ignore their reviews and continue to read and buy our fave books, they'll stop. Like children, when they stop getting the attention, they will stop.
I follow many Book Blogs and THOSE are worth my time and loyalty. Books were created for us to read, and dream/travel with our eyes open..not this awful bullying!!
Look for awesome Book Blogs (www.maryse.net and aestasbookblog.com are my two favorites), and have fun. They're free, and you will only meet awesome readers that want to chat about your favorite books. No wasting our time anymore by giving "The Mafia" our attention!
Now...to ALL OF THE "AMAZON NEG. REVIEW MAFIA"!...
I'm sorry, but you're a very, very ignorant and mean group of people. Who gives YOU the right to be the authority in what's right or wrong? On What or Who's good enough or not? Are you God?
Please, get a real job, find another hobby (obviously reading IS NOT yours), or take a vacation. The world is already a very difficult, sad place. We do NOT need the cyber bullying, evil comments from someone like you, that probably spends hours, and days just to be MEAN AND BASH other people's work, passion, life. Find something TRULY meaningful to do with your life.
Have a great day fellow readers! Let's enjoy our reads now..;)
