Well, you guys. It's finally happened. I knew this day would come, just as surely as the sun would set and the Florida prison inmates would buttfuck each other in the corner of their crap-covered cells.
I have received...hate mail.
I know, I know. Would could I have possibly done to deserve such nastiness? Such bitchiness? Such...stupidness?
The answer is...I don't know.
I think I should just post the offending transcript:
fu. where do you get Off thinking yur so amazing? ur getting all these fucking ARC copies for review you only have 130 followers!! where do you come off getting all these ARCs when you've only been blogging 4 months? WTF is ur problem? have you ever thought about the rest of us who actually have to PAY for our books, whil your getting them for free?! your reviews suck and i have no effing idea why authors or publishers or ANYBODY would want yuo to even READ them, let alone give them to you free!
unlike you, i work hard on my own blog (which im not going to tell you) and pay for all of my books. wen publishers ask me to review their books, i decline, becuz i know that review copies cost money the authors dont have and i choose to buy the books with everbody else! your just selfish for taking money away from these poor authors and books away from honest readers who blog because they love to read, not just for free books! you obviously don;t even like to read, with the sarcasm in your revewing tone and how you always focus on the negative aspects of a book instead of just enjoying it for what it is! your just a stupid, idiotic poser who should be focusing on schoolwork (ms D average freshman) instead of wasting your good years complainging about books you recieve for free. you obviously dont have much of a social life and are trying to vent your angers onto your readers, which just isnt fair!
next time you decide to steal a book from somone, id suggest you take a good hard look at yurself and decide where your lfie is going!
T...dear, sweet, moronic T. I apologize if I've...erm...offended you in any way. Needless to say, what you've written is hurtful and in desperate need of spellcheck, but I will try to respond in a manner appropriate for the intelligence level you have demonstrated.
Seriously, though. Everything you have said is so completely out of line I don't know where to begin. Number one--I am, in no way, shape, or form, stealing anything from anybody. Yes, I do only have about 130 followers and, yes, I have had this blog for a little under four months, but that does not mean I don't work for the followers and readers I do have and it in no way means I write this blog for the free books. Yes, I do enjoy the free books--what schmuck wouldn't?--but I did not start this blog just so I could get them. I do not think I'm amazing in any way. I think I'm just a kid writing down my thoughts for books I liked or didn't like. And I have no idea why anybody would give me free books either, but they do, and, again, it does not mean I'm stealing them. And, yes, I have thought about those who have to pay for their books--I am one of them. I have been one of them since I was seven years old, and I intend to stay one of them until the day every book in the world has been burned and fed to three eyed demons from the underworld.
I have no doubt, T, you work hard on your own blog. I believe anyone who takes the time to create a blog spends many hours making it nice and pretty and approachable. And that's fine that you decline ARC offers--your choice, not mine. If the opportunity to read a good book comes along, I take it. Sorry if that makes me a thief, but there it is. And the "sarcasm" in my "tone" (is this true, readers?) by no means I do not like reviewing books. It means I am a sarcastic person with sarcastic thoughts (though it is probably just a coping mechanism for the inner pain I feel 'cause I wasn't hugged as a child *sarcasm*).
As for me focusing on the negative--this isn't intentional. Well, maybe it is. I'm on of those people who believes something is as bad as it's worse quality, and it that makes my reviews seem negative...well, there are plenty of blogs out there who focus on the positive. Read one of them.
Now, as far as the whole "social life" concept goes--the gloves are coming off, bitch. I do, in fact, have a social life. If I didn't have a social life I'd be you, sending misspelled hate letters to poor, defenseles teenage girls (that'd be me). If you wanna get technical, if I had no life, I'd be dead. So why don't you put that on a dick and suck it, you shitcake.
So, what say you, dear reader, on this matter? Any hate mail stories you'd like to share? Comforting words to little ol' me who, despite the tough exterior, is secretly crying inside?
Seriously though, you guys, if I come across bitchy, it's a complete accident and I don't mean it. It stings to hear someone call me out on things I wasn't even aware I did, and if you have any constructive critism or something for me, feel free. And any not so constructive critism for dear T would also be welcome.
Let the flames commence.
