Indeed, if only for the reason that some people don't know when the hell to shut up:

When Jacqueline Howett got wind of his poor review, grammatically atrocious shit hit the fan:
... she then proceeded to include a few more of her other four and five star reviews from her blog/website. Okay, okay, we get it. This is already a sad display of desperation from someone who should be of thicker skin. After a few reader comments, Big Al addressed the author's dissatisfaction, in a polite and dignified way:
That is when it all fell apart. Some of Jacqueline's gems:
See? Show me poor grammar! Show me spelling errors!
Did she just say "did a booboo"? You've got to be shitting me.
What the hell is an "emergency copy"?
The fact that she sees nothing wrong is the issue.
Well, there you have it.
Fuck off, all 300 of you. Fuck off, fellow reviewers and authors who don't know what you're talking about. Fuck off, possible future fans who are too ignorant to know genius when you see it. Fuck off, anyone who doesn't agree with her opinion.
If that doesn't wrap it up in a big bow, I don't know what would.
Future authors, please read further so you have a vivid picture of what kind of professional you DO NOT want to be:
