I've done my research - read several pages of Encyclopedia Dramatica (nope, no link today) so I know what the trolls are expecting me to do. Reactions like racing to cover my tracks (baleting), posting long rants against them (BAWWWING) and enlisting my friends to stalk them back (lollercoaster) are expected.
Gee, sorry guys.
I'm feeding them this post - and one on Face Book - to keep them scouring the interwebz for more lulz at my expense.
Because there is no such thing as bad publicity.
My book sales have shot up since this started. I've been busting my butt to advertise 'Swallow the Moon' - my paranormal romance set in Ashtabula - with no success.
Thanks guys! This keeps up and you will fund my next trip to Ashtabula!

The number of hits this post has gotten requires me to make an update. The "Stop the Good Reads Bullies" from The Passive Voice.
There is a sociopathic insistence that the Trolls are the victims, even though they were the first to descend like raving harpies on targets chosen because 'they couldn't fight back.' They're running around, with tears in their eyes 'BWAAAAING' for all their worth, rationalizing and justifying their actions, denying they brought this on themselves.
So it's come to a typical troll-fest - complete with internet-wide LOLLERcoaster. The Huffington Post has now been drawn into it. (Note to HP - grow a freaking SPINE!)
Whoever updates The Encyclopedia Dramatica should have enough LULZ to keep them laughing for years.
