Dig *snickers*

Check out the review I just got/reported on CSI Forensics for High Stakes and also my reply.

Reviewer: unimpressed (Anonymous) 17 Feb 2009 01:32 am


it's a stupid ooc story, god! learn to write.

Author's Response: I'm sorry you feel that way, but no one forced you to sit and read my story in the first place. I would suggest that, in the future, you check story summaries before reading to avoid finding pairings or other things you dislike.


Honestly, where would the world be without idiots?

*snickers* I find it funny that they don't sign their rants.

I sign mine, and let the author tell me why they wrote that fic, and then I'd get to discuss it with them. *shrugs* It's why I know so many writers..... *looks cute*

You're totally right. Big sissies. *snickers*
Your way is the best. I usually don't leave anything negative or questioning in a review, I email. Same end result though.

*nods* I normally state that I don't understand the fic and that the summary doesn't match it....

then I tell them to message me back if they want to know why it squicked me or what not....

I think it sucks when people leave annon reviews are cowards. At least if you're going to bash someone's story, you should have the guts to sign it! I had that happen to me too... I think High Stakes is great! I just love House and Chase... Kepp up the great work!

They probably just randomly click on fics and leave things like this hanging around. It is the reason I left the Harry Potter fandom though. Too much negativity is bad for the plot bunnies.

What a horrible thing to just tell someone that their story is stupid.  If you don't like the pairing or the ooc style, then don't read it.  Why take the time to read something you know you are not going to like?  And to just insult you without reason?As for your writing abilities, she obviously has no clue.  I have read all your stories and you are a terrific writer.  I have been hooked on your Dragon series (Hint hint!!) and High Stakes is also well done.  I wouldn't take whatever this person said seriously, as if she or he was at all credible, they would have given their name or at least explained why they didn't like the story.  To just say it's 'stupid' is a childish thing to do.Keep writing, as there are those of us who love your stories (DRAGONS!!  HINT HINT!!!) lol...~Dana   dmc27

Well, actually, I just got a reason. Although the language is just as bad. *snickers* I'll post it here in a couple of minutes. Apparently they liked "A New View of Hell" and thought that this one would be good too.

Trust me, I'm laughing like a loon and it doesn't even bother me. I find it hilarious that they took the time to come back to the story they hate to see if I answered their review. rotflol.

Dragons are coming, I promise. High Stakes is just on a roll at the moment and I want to keep at it.

Too true. I wouldn't have a job without them either. *snickers*
And it seems that they're always around in the fandoms.

Without idiots who would we have to point and laugh at. It's ridiculous when they bash things that they could have avoided by READING the Summery. *headshake* Also they think because something isn't their cup of tea it's written badly, *headshake* *sigh* sorry you had to encounter an idiot.

I know, there's a little thing called a back button on the computer. *rolls eyes* Their latest note is even better. I got chewed out for trying to be polite. I'm just going to delete the damn things.

the world'll be just as backwards maybe the dinosaur times?

anyway people who bash people behind the monitor & call themselves 'anonymous' are just plain inferior [they get bashed like hell in the real world] & dumb - coz they dont even know their name

theres so many of these kinda idiots online, especially forums; people who think they know better, bash noobs for askin 'the most obvious/idiotic qns' [to them], altho i have to say that some of the qns are indeed quite ... *roll eyes*

It seems they don't like OOC House. I dunno. Really I don't. And still no signature either.

Oh who knows. I can't wait to see what happens when they see I deleted both reviews. *evil snicker* Or the fact that we're on here laughing at them.

Does that make me evil? *scratches head*

Feb. 18th, 2009 06:47 am (UTC)
they'll counter with some more lame stuff *roll eyes*

nah if anyone that laughs at others is evil, everyone on earth is evil includin horatio & his snickers

I'm almost curious at this point. I guess I'm just bored.

Very true. And I do tend to point and laugh at idiots at work...

Idiots indeed.

You know, it's one thing to say that you dislike a particular story that the author has written. It's an entirely different thing when you call a person's story stupid. Not to mention telling someone they need to learn how to write.I figure, if the person does not have the mental capacity or respect enough to tell you why(and sign their rant) they dislike or why they feel you should write the story with a different outcome, then ,they really shouldn't comment on it.

That shows the lack of appreciation for creativity and talent. That also shows their lack of maturity. Perhaps this is not their genre. Reading is beneficial and vital a person's mental acuity.

P.S. More hugs and lemon loaf to you. Now, where is my coffee? ***chasing Plot bunnies***

Yeah, this is more than a review, this is bordering on a flame. Fortunately I just laugh at things like this and move on. I could so totally keep going here, but I'm just going to drop it after deleting their reviews because, really, I don't need the negativity hanging about. I know its a good story.

The lack of coffee would explain how I managed to write sixteen pages (notebook, not computer) yesterday. Those guys are getting sneaky.

One more thing...
Forget the summary. What about the warnings? if the peron read the warnings instad of just jumping in then maybe you would have been spared. That person would have been spared from embarressing themelves by commenting on the story in the first place.

Re: One more thing...
Hmmm, somehow I doubt they're embarassed by it. But you're right. It's like I pointed out above, there's a nifty little device called a back button that is very handy if you happen to get into a story you don't like.
