FanStory.com — Biggest Scam ever
I agree with all the negative reviews of this place. I recently joined and to my dismay, I have spent 73.00 dollars for a year membership and a one time buy of membership dollars that only afforded me to promote to a very low position, two poems. The next day, they had already expired my promotion, despite the fact that it stated it would be up for 2-3 days. Recent reviews, were scathing and non productive, concentrating on childish antics, such as: stating that I used a word incorrectly, small grammatical errors and that words that I tried to rhyme were only slant rhymes and that I used them improperly. None of the reviews offered any positive feedback, only childish tantrums about the above matters, no true insight given, and if replied to in a manner where I would defend my writing, would only get more negative feedback. I was appalled, and further than that, I could not understand how any writer would want to review a poem that only gave them a one point and 2 cents return for their review. I had not promoted the poem for lack of funds. I in turn returned the favor to one of the writers, since I felt that perhaps, by reading his work, I may gather some insight. Well to my surprise I read a poem that had no content, was made up of a bunch of sentences that did not even go together, had no meaning due to the writer's efforts to make it more complicated than it should be. To my amazement, this was a recognized piece of work!!! The rank of the writer was pretty high up and I wrote exactly what I felt was truthful, just as he had returned the favor to my writing. This is how my review goes:
Do not understand the poem whatsoever, cannot follow, and do not know why it got a recognition. Sorry, just my opinion. Very difficult to follow, like a bunch of thoughts and words just thrown together, left for the reader to decipher whatever the meaning is. Not fair to the reader.
My account was suspended due to this comment with the following message:
Writing a low rating review on an authors work after receiving a rating that you don't agree with is considered a revenge review and a break in the site terms.
In addition, the rules are clear: Only reply to thank a reviewer or to request a clarification. Never attack a review or a reviewer. Do not defend your work here or using the private message system. These rules must be followed. It is for the benefit of you (you will receive honest feedback) and the benefit of reviewers (reviewers do not want to see this type of feedback).
REALLY??? THE WRITER IS COMPLETELY OUT OF LINE, DUE TO THE FACT THAT I MUTED HIM, FOR HIS SCATHING AND NEGATIVE REMARKS, NO NEGATIVE FEEDBACK WAS GIVEN TO THIS PERSON EXCEPT THAT I DID NOT AGREE WITH HIS REVIEW PERIOD ... I DO NOT KISS ###... AND CLEARLY I AM NOT ACCEPTING ANY BS FROM THIS SITE. THEY WANT ME TO ADMIT THAT I WROTE THIS IN REVENGE. NO ... GET IT CLEAR...AS I STATED ABOVE IT WAS CLEARLY TO GATHER INSIGHT FROM SOMEONE WHO "PURPORTEDLY IS A HIGH RANKED WRITER" HOGWASH, THE SITE IS A SCAM, GIVING ONLY SUPPORT TO THOSE WHO ARE RANKED HIGHER OR WELL LIKED. EVEN IF THEIR WRITING IS CRAP...
I HAVE NO PROBLEMS WITH NEGATIVE REVIEWS, JUST HAVE A PROBLEM WITH HOYTOYTIE IDIOTS WHO CLAIM TO BE WRITERS, AND ARE NOT, GIVING STUPID REVIEWS WITHOUT ANY POSITIVE FEEDBACK. ON TOP OF THAT I AM IN TOTAL DISAGREEMENT WITH THIS SITE'S PRACTICES AS FAR AS DRAINING AND BLEEDING MONEY FROM PEOPLE FOR THEIR STUPID AGENDAS. I WILL BE CALL THE FTC AND WILL ALSO REPORT IT AS A SCAM SITE TO THE FBI. I COULD CARE LESS IF THERE ARE A LOT OF POSITIVE REVIEWS OF THE SITE, THAT IS A MINORITY AND POSSIBLY COMPANY GENERATED.
