I'm a reader, not an author. I can't finish writing a story to save my life.
If I write a review, it will be because I have something to say, not because an author tries to threaten or bribe a review out of me. I hate that reviews have become rah rah sessions as much as I hate trolls. You don't always have to be positive to be helpful, but you shouldn't be mean or vicious either.
I used to have a whole list of ff.net pet peeves, but it was getting ridiculously long.
I hate drama of the non-fic variety, particularly when it plays out it author's notes. It tends to sour the reading experience.Please for the love of all that is holy, don't make us read your drama just because someone anon-reviewed and you can't can't snark back any other way... It only makes it worse. No feeding the trolls!
