GoodReads a Dictatorship
Now when I go check the novels I have written I see this super intrusive site comment
Hey, you have some reviews! That’s great news. Goodreads reviews help readers decide to read your book. Read more about reviews.
Looking to get more reviews? Try a free giveaway.
For more suggestions of great ways to use Goodreads, please see our author guidelines.
For more about how our reviews work, please see our review guidelines.
If you see a review you feel violates our guidelines, please flag it to bring it to our attention. You’ll see a flag icon when you mouse over the bottom right-hand side of a review.
And I have been informed per their new guidelines that even a simple THANKS FOR READING can be flagged and considered spam.
You can no longer shelve and author or write a review because the author behaved badly or acted like an ass, goodreads took down numerous reviews and shelves without even notifying users and the upheaval on this site and so many of my friends blogs isabso fucking lutely ridiculous.
As an author and a reviewer I cannot tell you how ashamed I am for goodreads that they have decided to censor a site that I have spent years enjoying.
Links for those interesting
