A "Hater" has just left a series of anonymous reviews of a number of my articles here on the Broo all within a short span of time, each with markedly lower across-the-board scores than the previous reviews that have been posted by folks who did not see the need to conceal their identities...
So I guess this is yet another strategy for dishonest people and their minions to propel their own articles up higher in the ratings. So much easier to diss the talents of others than to hone one's own skills.
I guess this is someone's idea of a good time. All I can say is what a pity they don't have something constructive to do with their lives. At least I can always write another worthwhile article for others to enjoy. Until of course the Haters diss that one and lower its ratings as well.
Thus is the sword of democracy double-edged. It would certainly be a lot more fair for everyone if reviews were similar to comments in that the creator would be identifiable and held accountable.
I have already filed two abuse reports to the Powers-That-Be here. If it is decided that the current system will remain in place, I unfortunately feel that I will have no alternative but to resign from the Broo, and that would sadden me indeed.
If anyone else has had a similar experience and has any ideas of how to remedy this abuse, I'd love to hear from you. Thank you kindly to those of you who have offered constructive criticism of my work.
I never take it amiss when someone has something valid to say, but anonymously generated bogus reviews are not among what I consider constructive.
