Here we are again...

... but this time, sincerely, I didn't care much and I have a reason for that. I read a book from a newbie author, Atom Heart John Beloved by Luke Hartwell. I think I was the first to review it, and since I have the referrals link report, I know people went on the Amazon website and bought the book after reading my review. I was happy of that, actually more than one people did that, and if you consider that I cannot check all link, then I think even more than those I saw bought it. Very very happy for this new author, it's always a joy to see a new attempt being successful.

And then today I received a notification from Amazon someone left a comment on the review on their website. I was happy and clicked to read the comment (I love comment)... this is it:

"Due to a complete disregard for proofing, or perhaps just bad grammatical skills, this review makes little or no sense.

Why bother posting a review if no one can understand it?" (http://www.amazon.com/review/R1QQV3WJ3XH910/ref=cm_cr_rdp_perm?ie=UTF8&ASIN=1478142928&linkCode=&nodeID=&tag=)

it was a bummer. I even re-read the review to understand if it was really so bad, and sincerely, I don't think so. My first reaction was to blame myself, but then, just second away, I thought, go to hell you and your hateful comment, you are not even worth a second thought. And I posted a reply:

"Apparently you are 1 out of 5 who cannot understand this review, and btw, since I also posted this on my website, and I have the referrals links report, I also know that people bought the book AFTER reading this same review. So yes, I think my "bother" in posting this review was worth the result. And BTW how many languages do you speak? Because, obviously English is not my mother tongue, but I can write good enough to have people giving me a positive vote, while probably you don't speak and write in Italian, am I wrong?"
