Are the rules different for Fraud Hattie?
This is something that I’ve wanted to discuss for some time now. We now have a new group of great posters here so I thought I'd throw these questions out here for some other opinions?
In the previous discussion on the deleted comments thread, it was pointed out that Hattie can post just about anything she wants to while others have their reviews rejected. My question is, are the rules for posting in reviews different for Hattie than anyone else? Opinions?
The other thing that’s been bugging me for a long time now is Hattie Fan Voting. Here’s a little history of what I’ve noticed:
Long after I became a neg fan of Hattie’s and could no longer vote, she puked out 60 or so fake reviews and when I went in to hack them apart, I noticed that almost all of them had a pozzie? These fake reviews could not have been out there for more than an hour or 2 so I thought they would go away as whoever put them out there was the same person and would become a fan. Not, they all stuck. So, having witnessed that, I thought that I would try a neg or 2 and see if they stuck, they did not. I tried this again after about 6 months and after hitting the refresh key, it looked like the votes counted. But, I looked back a few minutes later and they were gone. So, I waited again, a few months, tried again, only this time, I accidentally hit the helpful button, BAD BAD BUCK! And when I hit refresh, the vote was still there. For some reason, the pozzie stuck and it would not let me take it back by voting unhelpful (I think that there was one other person that mentioned this same thing a few weeks ago?). So, like a dummy, trying to see if I voted on a few more I would become a positive fan and they would all disappear? NOT, they all stuck and they are still there (it irks me to no end that I might have pushed up her ranking with the pozzies). So, theorizing that if you become a neg fan, you can still give pozzies? I picked a reviewer that I didn’t like much and voted unhelpful enough to become a negative fan. The next day, all of my negs were gone. I tried to vote pozzie and they did not take. Theory shot down. That got me to thinking again, if I become a pozzie fan, can I still vote neg? Not! I tried the reverse on a different reviewer and I still could not post neg or pozzie.
So, here’s my question, are the rules different for Hattie, can anyone vote pozzie all they want on Hattie's fake reviews without becoming a fan? Or, if you become a neg Hattie fan, you can become a turncoat and vote pozzie till the end of time on Hattie’s fake reviews?
It sure looks to me that there are special rules just for Hattie and her fake shill reviews. Opinions?
