    Honestly pretty sure that's a troll.

    I hope

    I love the descent into regret. Apparently Anticlockwise just ruined someone's Christmas Eve.

    So I called him out despite the different username:
    I guess this guy doesn't have anything better to do with his time?

    One of those don't feed the trolls moments.

    Eh, it takes me 30 seconds to reply and he probably spends half an hour writing his. I'm pretty certain if asked he'll call me the troll.

    It's just so weird with the triple dots suspension points and self-censoring "dick". FFN.net reviews are often such shit but this really stuck out to me. It was on Harry Potter: The Last Avatar.

    I never got a truly baffling review. Until today. I got this gem on Outside These Walls this morning:

    It was unfortunately an anonymous review. That's got to be trolling, right? I wasn't sure until the bit about Marlene McKinnon and Bengie Fenwick, but that's pretty much where I decided he couldn't be for real.

    It's like 60% of the way to being a review made by a Markov chain text generator.

    I'm pretty sure this is the dumb fuck that called @Menace a lonely white boy over on SB in the Naruto thread. They seem to have a hate boner for all things DLP and pretty much anything that doesn't fit their perfect picture.

    @Paradise signature is also courtesy of them.

    Ah, that would explain a lot. Got a review that didnt like my story (ok fair enough) but then went on a rant about DLP over it. Like he was more mad at DLP liking it than him not liking it himself.

    Well there is also that Alexx person that is mad they got banned from DLP so they made a fuckton of sock accounts. So, no idea really. But the review that Plotless got smacked of that dude/chick (don't know their gender tbh) from the Naruto thread over on SB.

    So I have a repeat anonymous reviewer for Victoria Potter and I'm always torn on whether to moderate his reviews or not. Like, on the one hand I don't want to indulge trolls. On the other hand, their reviews only serve to add to my review count so it's a bit of an own goal for them.

    The reviewer obviously thinks that they are writing a very clever reductio ad absurdum of feminism, but ultimately all they end up doing is parodying their own neckbeardy basement dweller ideas.

    Here they are:

    LMAO, it astounds me every time how much time some trolls spend writing reviews for fanfiction. Though that feminism stuff reminds me of a review for Cxjenious The Black Prince I saw yesterday:

    I mean, it's great that people are invested in something, but surely there are better places for it [even if it's trolling on twitter].

    Trolling fanfiction.net authors is truly the highest pinnacle of the art form.

    Anyone old enough to have been rendered butthurt by DLP when DLP did anything remotely worth being butthurt over should now be too fucking old to be butthurt over fanfiction.

    Would also be a monument to the masterpiece that is The Cursed Child.
