I haven't been active here in quite a long time, but every once in awhile I see an e-mail saying someone has reviewed one of my pieces. Because the piece in question isn't something I particularly care about, I've been ignoring said e-mails...until today, when I decided to finally log back in and see what was being said.
This was the gist of my reviews over the past few months:
"cool piece of writing, cool piece of writing, cool piece of writing..."
Only two reviews actually said anything, and only one of those was heartfelt. The other was a syrupy "great job!" from someone earning brownie points for reviewing.
Is there any way to report those people that just mashed a key or copy-pasted the same phrase over and over to reach a minimum character-limit?
I may not be as invested as I used to be, but this doesn't sit right with me, and these people need to realize that that kind of s*** doesn't fly.
