…and that is not a good “Wow.” Someone just posted 13 individual unsigned negative reviews on the most recent chapter of “The Real Me,” I posted on ff.net in a matter of minutes. Since I have unsigned reviews set to “moderate” and (actually can’t log into ff.net from work even if I wanted to to approve them) they didn’t post right away, which apparently annoyed said reviewer, so they just kept posting more…and more…and more… and I didn’t even see them until I got home from work. Since I was accused of not allowing guest reviews to be seen, I approved all of them, so if you want to go see what a mentally unstable blitz attack looks like, have a peek.
But, serious question for Fanfiction.net veterans who have seen this kind of thing before. I don’t actually mind a negative review so long as there is actual feedback telling me what they don’t like about the story in it, and a couple of negative reviews have been really helpful in pointing out where I needed to be clearer in what I said. But these particular reviews don’t really offer anything — except that they do raise my review count. Unfortunately, with a bunch of “You just suck” kind of reviews, I feel like it not fair to count them that way, but if I take them down, I’ll look like I was embarrassed by them. And frankly, I’m not since I think they reflect more on the person who wrote them than on me.
