Before we get to our fourth carpet bomber, we want to let everyone know that we were cc’d on an email to Nader Kabbani and Jeff Bezos regarding the recent drama with the trolls’ reviews and ratings on GR. Below is Nader’s response:
Due to the high volume of emails they are getting, Amazon has made the problem on GR top priority. We are hoping, along with our readers, that they come to a solution soon. Thank you, Amazon!
In other news, Linda Hilton seems to have taken some heat for the carpet bombing spree she went on when she one-starred 1,000 books in one day (which if anyone really counted, came out to be more like 500):
When you see something like this, you have to wonder how these people manage to survive at all. Don’t they have anything else to do with their lives, like — I dunno — work?
Anyhow, due to the backlash, Linda recently wrote up a lame excuse for what she did:
Nice try, Linda, but that’s about as good as “my dog ate my homework” or “I didn’t do it because I was on the moon!” Actually, no, it’s not even as good as those. At least those excuses are logically coherent!
In any case, if you take a look at Linda’s shelves today, all those carpet bombs she spent so much time on are gone. So we’re wondering, what kind of unintelligible justification will she babble now? Space monkeys came and removed all my one-stars!
Edit 10/2/2013: because of this post, Linda went on another carpet-bombing spree just to prove how incredibly immature she is.
Anyhow, let’s move on to the fourth carpet bomber of our Carpet Bombers Series, shall we?
Bekka was the first CB’er we found when we first heard about the marathon one-starring of books due to the announcement of GR’s new policy. When we clicked on her profile, we found HUNDREDS of carpet bombs on her shelves. Now, when you go to her profile, you find this:
You see, after hearing the news of our CB Series and seeing the backlash on Linda, she deleted all of the books on her shelves and privatized her GR account. Then, she fled to BookLikes (the new protective haven for the trolls) where she says:
Now, remember what we said in our post, Jenn Falls on Bullying and Critiquing:
These people do these things and cop these attitudes because they think it makes them “badass” or in other words, they think it makes them look cool. But it doesn’t make them look cool. It just makes them look like foolish, little children.
And a foolish little child she is. Fortunately, we managed to get a snapshot of this little dung beetle before she cleaned up her trail:
And of her friends (of which there were several well-known trolls):
And of the people she was following:
And of her carpet bombs! Now, keep in mind the words of her profile:
“There is no good book. There is no bad book. All books deserve five stars.”
Uh… hmm… *scratches chin* Maybe she meant one star:
