13,998 and going

I wonder why Harriet hasn't posted 2 more to reach the 14,000 mark. On June 4th she had an influx of reviews... hmmmm....
So when do you think she will finally reach 14,000? Maybe she will stay at 13,998 like review #2 who is as 6666 because he finds it funny.

I hope that HK may be on a vacation. She truly needs a life. I believe that she has mental issues in regards to her reading. It is obvious that she is "obsessive" with her reading and review posting. With out help, this kind of problem really does steal some one's life without them even being aware of it until confronted by concerned loved ones. Hopefully her family has taken her on a vacation. I feel sorrow for her. I have worked with these personalitie types when I was nursing on a Psych unit. With proper psychiatric help, HK could have a normal life, but she will have to learn to substitute reading for other behaviors. Her family would enjoy having a wife and mother around ........

Why are people hammering on Misfit? Did you really leave Amazon? What's up? Is Barb okay? I've only been gone a week, for heaven's sakes.What has happened?..........

Susiq2,

You missed alot. FTF went from being funny to a raving manic (10 minutes tops and this will be quoted at the review discussions, watch).

He's got it in his head that Barbara (and gang--JJJS, KrossD and myself) are self appointed police of the reviews and we have no right to voice our opinions, only FTF and his minions.

Just read through some of the recent posts and judge for yourself. I will happily lurk for the time being, dealing with a nut it not high on my list of things to do, and he's also brought out the worst in MM.

Please come back!! You know who is rude, and mean spirited. Do not read their postings! Let them rant, but do what is right for you....I miss you guys when I am away, and I enjoy our time on Amazon, so please come back!!! We will miss you too much if you leave...........

OK, this is fun:

"They're getting royally pounded over at Grady's neighborhood, and I'm happy to say my contribution has been significant. LOL Grady invited me to be his Amazon friend! They get positively bombed on the "No" button over there like nothing you've ever seen. I have a strong feeling that we've caused a rather large leak in the hull of their battleship already."

Oh my, what an honor to be an Amazon friend of Grady Harp, the magical voting machine. What more could one want in life?

Misfit,

Some people were placed on this Earth to provide something for other people to ignore. It is an unfortunate side-effect of evolution that certain individuals are just, more or less, totally useless. Occasionally such people become lucid as to their lack of utility, and lash out. The behavior shown by these individuals is nothing more than insolent shouts for attention. Those two, or three, or x number of people obviously didn't receive much love from mommy.

Do not allow your sense of what is or is not correct be dictated by these hysterical pieces of rabble-rousing fluff. Continue posting, as your comments are important and demonstrate the idiocy and fraudulent behavior practiced by the worst of the false reviewers.

My $0.02.

Thanks all for the kind thoughts. Interestingly enough, I tried to post a comment on a book I'd just finished (nothing to do with a top reviewer), and I received an error message that I had to be in good standing with the Amazon community to post comments.

Note, I have two Amazon accounts w/two different emails and it was the one I stopped using to post about a month or so ago. I was able to post a comment today with that account. I also posted a review this morning with the old account and it hasn't shown up yet, and they usually show up immediately.

What on earth could I have said on the comments as to be banned? I see a few comments that have been deleted by Amazon, but not all. Scottdog, were you able to post reviews after you were "banned" from posting?

Whew! The review showed up, about an hour later. I've really started to enjoy writing reviews on the books I've read, it makes me take time to think about the book after I'm done, instead of diving into the next one.
