Amazon meltdown

Postby Serkanner » 14 Dec 2010 13:14

I wasn't sure whether we talked about this guy from Amazon here or on TAU, but I think we have ourself an "a close Harwood of the third kind"-type meltdown on our hand.

Remember the two discussion topics about promising, self-published, Science Fiction author Stephen Turner and his Magnum Opus: "The Last Voyage of the Cassiopeia"?

Well ... he woke up after two months: Look here! and here too

:mrgreen:

His deleted message was:

Drug addled Holland, huh? Not surprising. But just about everybody I've ever met from Holland was fairly cool.

What happened with you?

Anyway.... yes, DO that! Leave me your address and where we can send the subpoena, okay, genius?

What are you, Craig's gay lover or something? You just came out of nowhere. I don't remember responding to ONE post of yours in any of Marilyn's forums....

Perhaps somebody can explain to him why his posts get deleted and not "ours"?

Weird ... not much at all. Something to the effect of "you take yourself too seriously." No curse words, no personal attacks, no whatever. Very strange.

Maybe I'm on a short leash with the Amazon brownshirts? :confusion-shrug:

huh ... they deleted my post too - I had just copypasta'd the wingnut's deleted post from the OP of this thread ...

oh well, I can do that shit all day ... re-postin' ....



[edit]
shit.
I keep forgetting to make sure I'm on the last page of posts ....
my first post was not deleted, but I didn't see that, and reposted,
but then I had to "login", and when I got returned to the first page
of posts, I thought it hadn't gone thru, so I re-reposted ... so now
there's three posts with the wingnuts deleted post ...

I'll try again ... this time with just everyday words.

I'm more curious than anything else; I don't really need to "win" an argument with this nutter.

Well, I didn't spell it out either. This time was as good as any other to "share" my real name ... just like The Tidwell did :mrgreen: ... although I will of course never be as powerful as THE Tidwell.

Did you guys notice that all of Stevie's 5-star "reviews" that he used to post his video intros for the books are gone? I wonder if he deleted them himself (most likely IMO) or Amazon zapped them. ;)

Oh you're kidding?! That CUNT.

Off to check....

Edit: I'm back. No, it looks like both samples, paperback and Kindle, are still available. :dance:

(Warning, though, it's REALLY dire stuff. He couldn't even keep to the same tense in the opening paragraph, if I remember correctly. :doh: )

Stephen Turner is a master of dialogue. Lots of exclamation points and unnecessary exposition. It's basically one long dialogue scene of some asshole explaining the story to a robot that knows more about it than he does. He is a great dramatist. How dare you suggest he is not a great dramatist! HOW DARE YOU!

He's like Dickens.

I saw it on Broadway... twice! The kids love it, too.

The only poetry I've ever liked was obviously written in some kind of drug stupor.

Go figure. :?

Yeah. There are worse things in life than musicals.

Like musical dinner theater! :shock:

(Actually, I've been to quite a few of the latter and they can be quite fun. LIke the Wizard of Oz production where Dorothy picked up Toto and he kept savaging one of her tits. Got a good mouthful on one shot and she actually squealed during another actor's lines. :laughing: )
