Nice responses today.
Not one but two unreviewed passerby show up to give me their unsolicited opinions on why unsolicited opinions are evil.
“listen up and i will say this only once, if you dont like the story, no one forces you to read it […] also, don’t bother to reply to me.”
I get another supporter in the Blaze conflict, however.
“… You understand that you aren’t very loved on this site, and if I’ll try to think on and accept your criticism you will have to do the same and try to improve your ways, before starting with the story that ‘people are insensitive’.”
Someone drinks Blaze’s Kool-Aid and decides people wanting to burn me at the stake is proof I deserve to be burned at the stake. They proceed to tell me to repent and mend my ways without actually telling me how, as per usual.
Mixed bag today. Several people are reasonable, but one completely loses it because I obviously knew one of the authors I reviewed plagiarized their story.
Calm responses today, including one that seems genuinely interested in my opinions.
Someone unrelated to Blaze’s posse but who was still taking random potshots at me abruptly decided to contact me out of the blue. I didn’t learn much, other than that people continue to love ceding the moral high ground.
Very reasonable responses today, including some nice discussion about geopolitics and worldbuilding.
Someone who was not Dragon’s Blaze left a counter-review on The Two Colors, Pink and Blue:
“Ok first off don’t listen to this idiot below me Elmo. He rags on every new writer and only targets people with smaller stats. If you look at the stories he’s written well let’s just say he doesn’t practice what he preaches.“
I hoped I could get some reviewing out of them or at least an explanation of what sucked about my stories, but alas this was not to be.
“As for the whole ‘world’ thing, majority of the time, people don’t bother with that, because it limits who reads the stories since people don’t generally use that search. If I don’t identify it to a world, that allows more people to read it.” THIS IS WHY I HAVE TO DO THIS.
“And since part of your penname is Elmo yeah dude Elmo is for kids not adults. So grow up!”
Responses are otherwise appreciative, including a few messages in support of me re: the Blaze conflict.
Super chill responses today. The worst I’ve got is someone upset at Blaze’s review abuse.
Very few responses today, but the ones I get are pretty good. I guess I’ll just have to assume everyone’s being chill!
A revenge review, and otherwise polite responses.
