I did as you requested for a fellow hubber---as I detest rude people who like to be mean.
Good Luck and I click yes on all the good reviews.
Have a great Sunday.
Since when does harsh criticism = trolling?
I hate Michael Bay's movies because they're loud, obnoxious, brainless wastes of celluloid that serve only to pander to idiotic people. That doesn't make me a troll; that makes me a critic.
That's hardly a very 'critical' review. It's a 'this book sucks' review. I see your point, and completely agree with it, but I think the reviewer was just having a bad day. If he meant to actually review the book and paint it as poor, then he could have used different language. There wasn't a word there that would be helpful in making a decision about purchasing the book, at least IMO.
I don't know if he was trolling, an idiot, mean, bored, or has an inferiority complex. --- But there is mature, even-handed criticism of the actual work, object, etc. And there is ego-maniacal, by God I get to be a critic, wildly and abusively trashing both the work and the person behind it.
Come on, compare what he wrote to the other comments and the difference is not only huge but extremely clear.
--- He may not be a troll, but he is absolutely not a critic!
How many of his movies did you see to come to that conclusion?
Pearl Harbor, Armageddon, and the Transformers trilogy. They're all trash.
It took you five movies? I saw one and decided I wasn't interested in his films.
It was a matter of eliminating any random elements. Even Stanley Kubrick had his off-days like with Eyes Wide Shut, but if I saw just that, I'd never know all the great films Kubrick made.
Sometimes you just don't take that chance, even with hacks like Michael Bay.

Ever since I published a hub about a certain website (which in my humble opinion is a scam) my hub has been slowly gaining traction in google. When I wrote my hub, it was kind of in response to the top google result at the time being a hub that was obviously planted by the company themselves...

Do you primarily write (negative) reviews?When your expectations are (met) or you had a (great) time at a resort hotel, restaurant, cruise, movie or other hospitality venue are you the type of person who posts (positive) reviews online and responds to surveys?

Doesn't bother me one bit. I laughed and see the patheticness in these people so much now but decided I wanted to post about it and see if this has happened to anyone else. On one of my poems here is what someone wrote,"I am concerned about the image you selected, a silhouette of a woman...

Can I write a Hub on a book review even if I felt negatively about it?
