Spam or overzealous author?

Set 4, 2022, 9:19 am

I'm leaning toward overzealous author. When I went to flag the profile it said to "e-mail" about overzealous authors, but this being LT of course gave no e-mail address to contact. What do?

>1 lemontwist: What have they done that is spam? All I see is that they have added their own book to their catalog, which is not against the TOS, and they have put a lot of junk in the review fields for several books, which is also not against the TOS.

Not spam. Not an overzealous author. Just a lot of garbage.

Looking a little further it does seem that the user has tried (but failed) to add links to their own books on Amazon to reviews of all the other books in their account so I do think I'm going to flag those reviews
