When you get feedback from a reader and it's just "You need to stop writing/put your story out to pasture"
I wonder if you angry little trolls get some validation out of that?
Does SOL have a mechanism where we can share your name with other authors, because I am guessing you are around giving equally as useless feedback to discourage authors (Who do this for free) to get your validation and it'd be nice to have a shared list of people to ignore.
My suggestion to SOL is give us the ability to limit certain accounts from ever giving feedback.
They down-vote the stories all they want too, but stop emailing negative nonsense.
If you want this latest little snots email to add to your filter - please email me. He subsequently wrote to say that I should ask what was good/bad about the story.
I told him when he wrote that I should "kill off all the characters and put the story out to pasture" he made the value of his advice plain.
