amazon follies

amazon_2So I have —

Some Twitter stalker going all balls out to hit me. This happens. The stalker thing. I appear to be stalker candy.

Sometimes I wonder if I should even be out in the world, but, fuck it, I want to live my life.

It generally happens because someone makes up in his or her mind what I am supposed to be. And then splat, they meet me, and I’m not it. Ahhh! She isn’t my imagined girl on the unicorn! Ahhhh!

 


 

Look I’m not a girl on a unicorn. And a very smart friend once told me, Look, you owe people who bought the book one thing and one thing only: The book. And you don’t have to be anything more or less than that. The end.

This fucker didn’t even buy the book. He just chased me around on Twitter. His intro was him telling me how amusing he found the Boston Marathon Bombing and West, Texas explosions. And since I did not find either amusing, it went downhill from there.

 


 

But he kept following me.

 


 

When I posted, Had anyone read the book who could give it a review? He said, “So, did I want HIM to give it a review”?

It was a threat.

I said I’d prefer people who read the book gave it reviews. And then he got more freaky and I blocked him.

 


 

He reviewed the book on Amazon. Just like he promised to do if I wasn’t nicer to him. A book he never read.

And he started a WordPress blog titled MaxAdamsAndTwitter. And pasted my photo on it and went to town with posts — with a link off his Amazon “review.”

 


 

WordPress took the blog down. Seeing as it was wearing my name and was draped in my photos and that’s kind of fucked up.

Amazon, however, is a little kinder and friskier with stalkers.

 


 

Amazon was the link out to the Max Adams Stalker Blog, see. But no worries. First, Amazon couldn’t find the one 1 star review on the book’s Amazon page even with an ISBN and link to the review. I know, that was the first email a week or so later after I asked for help.

(No worries, Amazon, I will send them to you again.)

Then, the review that flat out says “I didn’t read the book I just hate and want to fuck with the author” and links to a WordPress blog wearing the author’s name and photo attacking the author, well, no worries. That doesn’t violate Amazon terms of service. Because I guess being a conduit to personal and professional attacks on authors on the internet is no biggy, Amazon?

For fuck’s sake, Amazon, what are your terms of service?

Just curious.

 


 

I have to go call my lawyers now to find out what it means when an online business is actively operating as a conduit for personal and professional stalker attacks on female individuals through the internet. I asked for help more than once from you guys.

Love and Kisses,

Your Fuck You Amazon Adams Girl


 

PS: Hey, I posted your photo up there, you won’t mind right? You didn’t mind linking out to a stalker who was posting my photos, so I figured it would not bother you. Smooches!

  1. I do not presume to know how much this stalking has affected you, but at least he has no access to you to do any physical damage. There is every chance of him suddenly shifting his focus to some other girl as suddenly as he started to stalk you. He must be only fascinated by your look if he hasn’t read your book. But he does read your Twitter and you have this gift to reach people through writing. You might just be able to persuade this stalker to see the futility of his wasting your time and his. I am grateful to your book that made me see that script writing was not for me, which saved me time. I hope this stalker can find his thing and leave you alone. Of course you should live life for you… and your fans. Even though I am pursuing a different creative field I am still inspired by your blog that is filled with energy and fair observations. Best wishes.
