With all the bullying going on, the investigations might be starting. Everyone is getting tired of putting up with comments vs true reviews, especially nasty ones with or without personal attacks.
This is information that even readers should know. I wish I’d known it when I was only reading and not yet an author. I would have posted more positive reviews and voted for the good ones and against the obvious troll ones. But understanding the system is only the beginning.
There is good advice here, with helpful links. I found it through my review of StoptheGoodreadsBullies site from a Tweet I received. So, word is getting around. Next is awareness for more in the business and the general public.
Bullies are not our kind of people and I keep hoping that search for another planet is just to find a place where they can be relocated and turn on each other. That would be fair.
Addendum: Just found this on Twitter about how Amazon was founded. http://www.newyorker.com/reporting/2014/02/17/140217fa_fact_packer?currentPage=all?mbid=social_retweet
