INTERNET TROLLS, ETC.: OUT OF THE SLIME…

Good morning!  I’ve been playing around with my blog header here…and I’m not sure that I’ve settled on this one.  But time will tell.

Meanwhile, I was reading e-mails and got one of those comments on an Amazon review.  I should change the notifications so I don’t get those, but then again, I like to know what the trolls are saying.  LOL.

The person said that my review should be ignored, since I was a “paid reviewer,” and gave away too much info.

Of course I had to respond and point out that the description written before “my thoughts” came straight from the product page…and BTW, I am not a paid reviewer.

I don’t usually let comments unsettle me, and mostly I ignore them.  But I had to correct her assumptions about my review being “paid.”  If only!

I know that some book reviewers have opted not to post on Amazon…trolls seem to linger there and come out of the slime occasionally.  I should be grateful that it doesn’t happen a lot.

So…now that I’ve vented about that, I can go back to reading Mrs. Fletcher, which I’m really enjoying.  A mother (Eve Fletcher) whose nest is now empty; her college age son who is struggling with his first year, mostly the social aspects; and a group of interesting new friends that Mrs. Fletcher has discovered in an unexpected place.

Do you find yourself venting occasionally at comments on the Internet?  What do you do about them?

    • Oh, so do I, Vicki….unfortunately, authors want their reviews posted on Amazon, sometimes even Barnes & Noble.

      I try not to engage with the trolls, but I had to put in my two cents worth about being a “paid reviewer.” LOL.

      Thanks for stopping by.

  1. Yucky trolls. I still post on Amazon because I know it helps authors and readers. Some people just make trouble and guess no better name than ‘trolls’. Good on you for replying politely and firmly!
