1 Nurturing is one thing; pandering is another. You decide.
1 Come on GR, there's nothing wrong with the review.

Just another reason I gave up writing reviews on this site. "Political correctness" brought to a new height (or depth).

1 No doubt it's accounts. Many times I have asked (not expecting an answer) for the number of users who have accessed this site in the last 6 months. Even offered a reasonable contribution to the charity of Otis or whomever's choice for the number. Nothing.

A conservative estimate. I imagine more like 15 million inactive accounts, tho not necessarily spammers/sockpuppets.
1 And one could identify "fraudulent" accounts as opposed to legitimate multiple accounts how?

1 Apparently not a priority.

Perhaps I'm naive, but I imagine the FTC has a little more to do with its time than find and harass one star raters. In the great world (or USA), it's of no importance to 99.9 percent of the people at all. None. It's a constant source of amazement to some of us how seriously reviewers/raters take themselves. If there are 1000 people who give a darn what any reviewer or rater does, one star or five star I'd like to hear from them.

I'd take their 1.6 percent any day.
1 I quit entering when I didn't win for over 18 months. I think I won two.

Not to be a smart ass, but if you want to win a book, join Library Thing :) I've won every month since I joined.

1 "Correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't the point of this site and it's apps to connect readers with books and by default the stats of the books?"

Sorry to be the one to break it to you, but the object of this site has changed to selling books for Amazon. Plain and simple. Reader usefulness, accessibility, etc., are unimportant.

1 Still happening as of now

1 Well put Sandra, so much HAS been lost. And nothing gained worth mentioning.

1 Thanks for the info.

1 How do I delete the Challenge Icon from the home page? I don't wish to participate or see it and can't figure out how to eliminate it. Thanks.
Welcome Aaron! (26 new)

1 Hello Aaron. I will pray for you.... :)

1 It's my opinion that as long as GR/Amazon gets the free labor of librarians, there is no incentive to stop making messes. Which is one of the reasons I stopped herculean editing and just very occasionally fix things directly on my booklist.

1 Have you ever seen a wave, photo from above, with foam on top, moving toward the coast from a distance?

That's how the line is, IMHO. Varying, portions moving toward the front or back, portions disappearing only to reappear suddenly and without prior notice.

Or, the line is subject to the whims of whoever is patrolling that day at GR.

Take your pick?
