In the last 2 months, Hattie has 1849 votes, 1640 89% positive and 209 11% negative. The 9 months prior to that, Hattie has averaged 570 votes per month (570 votes, 390 68% positive, 180 32% negative). That's over twice as many over the last 9 months average.
Why is it that Fraud Hattie is getting so many more votes lately?  I think I smell a bunch of dirty socks by the name of Shelly/Harry/Henry/Lisa/THEY/Nancy/IT/Spanish Beard.

Good to see in numbers what I suspected all along. Keep up the good work!

Don Reed said...

And these are only the KNOWN ballot-box stuffing numbers.

I wouldn't be surprised to find out if 50 or more of these "identities" are part of the orchestration of fake voters.

Don Reed said...

The assumption above was that all of these fakes are not connected with The Big A.

What if the fakes are created within - if it's an inside job?

Furthermore, how do we know that when we see "Deleted By The Author," that it really had been the author who voluntarily deleted a comment below a review?

Once the reviews are fake and the voting is rigged, NOTHING on the screen can be regarded as authentic.

Businessmen & other lowlifes go to jail for trafficking in fake paintings & sports memorabilia, for bad checks and identity theft.

When was the last time people were investigated & prosecuted for fake reviews, etc.?

Nice job, Buck!

Yes, there is definitely a rotten smell coming from the recent voting activity, and it stinks even worse than Harriet's crap usually does.

New York is actually starting to fine businesses for fake reviews:

Adding to what SB has posted:

"NY Attacks 'Web' of Lies in Fake Online Reviews" - NY Post 09/24/13

These involved "19 companies that included $350,000 in penalties... Schneiderman said, 'This investigation into large-scale, international deceit... approach on-line reviews with caution."

That $18,421 per company. Written off as a cost of doing business?

Speaking of the web, our public Harriet Hokum site has, to the right on the screen, various other sites that over the years have pointed out the Hokum fraud.

Some of these links are busted. Can they be re-established? Also, can the order of sites offered be arranged in chronological order?

Back to the frauds, in relationship to Harriet - how much money (profit) can be made by rigging the voting?

I still find it a dubious proposition that "writing" all these fake reviews can be that profitable. Am I wrong? Could be.

What if the authors of all those "Nigerian" spam mails - "Please help me cash this $50 million check..." are also the writers of the Hokum reviews?

Wouldn't it be lovely if we could state to each book buyer, "Congratulations! Fifty cents of the price you paid for the book goes to the fake reviewers!"
