Stop your belly-aching, we are tired of hearing it!

This is a re-post of a no holds barred blog comment I left for someone who needed a dose of reality about their writing, their reviews, themselves, and why we are all here on this Earth in the first place. Read on, if you dare!
If you write like Edgar Allan Poe, then you will get reviews, but stop complaining because people don't review your crap! Be grateful you sorry, spoiled punks, that anyone even reads your garbage at all! You spoiled brats make me sick. So shut up already!
In terms of reviews, in general the poetry is always easier to read and will garner more reviews in return per amount of time spent reading it. Reciprocity is a fact of life around here. So that is to say, it is two parts the number of reviews you give, to one part talent, multiplied by a factor of how many people you haven't alienated that still bother to track you and review any more. I LOVE my trackers, even though I am not half the writer THEY are, and I let them know it. Be humble, and grateful, and remember, you have a choice whether to stay and post or not. Maybe you need to post somewhere else where they don't know you for a while. How about posting your writing here anonymously, that is, as someone else for a while to get a change of perspective. One day you will realize, that this will not continue forever, and a new kid in town will take your place one day, and the reviews you get now will trickle down to nothing in comparison. Better yet, just go away, and leave this place for those who write because they have a passion for it and have something to say, not for ego's sake.
Better start thinking bigger than AD, and ride your momentum to something bigger, cause the ride won't last forever, instead of complaining that the flame is not the right color, even as you are going ninety miles an hour with your hair on fire. You will fall to earth one day, and like the rest of us, have to be grateful for every humbling scrap. Then maybe you will remember why you started writing in the first place. If you want more, invite some professional reviewers who have no stake in keeping you or your sister's ego's afloat,and see how you like what THEY have to say...That will take you down a notch or too. Reality check time...You have enjoyed the ride too long... Long live the Trackers!!!! You guys Rock! Yeah! Love you all, Starman
