    A guest review for Lesser Evils on FFN:

    My guess is this is @LordPotter, the latest exceptional retard that graced DLP's hallowed halls. I don't recall antagonizing anyone on r/HPfanfiction recently.

    That same person (judging by time frame, guest review status, and the level of butthurt), also left a review for LE's sequel:

    The cunt looks even stupider for it, because this story has not even been submitted for review.

    He's somewhat of a regular Anon on FF.net. I recall good comments from him, personally. And while you can debate the tone (or you can't, really, seeing we care about content, not intent): he's partly right.

    The Atrium is on level 8, so you first drive down (from above ground), and then up again (except for levels 9 and 10). It's, like he says, an underground 10 storey-building (though he does appear to get the entrance wrong) :p

    I saw those, Inert.

    They were funny as fuck. Literally none of his suggestions were anywhere near as good as what you actually wrote, and that side plot was a true headscrathcer.

    @Corvus Black I just don't understand the idea of giving someone completely foreign plot ideas in a review. If you feel so strongly, write it yourself. That's how all of my fics started.

    Truly disgusting. I was worried for a second that I was being a bit harsh calling the reviewer a retard but I don't care now. The faster harem garbage dies the better.

    Yeah, it's for my "I really hate a lot of SAO but love the concept" Stalker crossover. Which will most certainly not be featuring a harem.

    I can't tell but I think he's insinuating the reason I don't like harems is because I'm a bad writer and can't write them.

    I love this line. The only thing preventing you developing kirito's relations is your own fear! Cast aside your doubt and try to develop!

    Dude, you won a (non)argument on internet.

    You convinced a (fanfiction!) reader to put aside their preconceived expectations and believe the author knew what they were doing.

    I received the below review on my story from DragonsinWrath, complaining that by the end of chapter 1 not enough had happened in terms of divergence from canon.

    [​IMG]

    Curious, I looked at DragonsinWrath's profile below. There I found a comment (in the third paragraph) where he "implores" people not to listen to people who say you have to diverge from canon ASAP. I wholeheartedly agree with this sentiment: each story must stand on its own, establishing its own canon.

    I decided to quote his own profile at him in a message. Lols ensued:

    Close the thread, we‘ve found the worst review.

    I wonder whether they wrote that so long ago they forgot about it or whether they just copy/pasted the entire wall of text from somewhere…

    I remembered my favourite review.

    Context: 110 chapters in the protagonist was revealed to be a rapist. We were shown basically since the beginning that he was a thief, a murderer, a torturer and a general psycho.
