Reviewer Baiting


Dear Wannabe Badly Behaving Author,

You may think baiting reviewers into arguing with you so you can take screenshots and your story to The Site That Shall Not Be Named to enable you to make some new BBA friends – beyond sucking up to the BBA and STGRB supporter you converse with on Twitter – and boost sales of your books, but please do not do this.

It WILL backfire on you.

If you don’t care about your reputation or your future career prospects, then you should think about the other people involved in your plan.

Someone may one day take your bait, because I’m not biting, but please think of the person you are victimizing. Yes, victimizing. Your entrapment and subsequent naming and shaming of your prey will most likely lead to internet stalking, harassment, doxxing, and possibly somewhere you don’t want it to go, like police involvement.

As you live in the UK, you should be aware of the potential jail time one could be serving for cyber harassment. And as you live 25 miles away from me, should you decide to pursue me personally, I would not hesitate to protect myself if you come anywhere near my home.

Please take this as a warning and do not contact me again.

Yours sincerely,

An Unwilling Target in Your Scheme
