There's a simple, absolutely fool-proof method to not getting a bad review: don't publish a book.

And, by the way, nobody from Ama*zon is here to listen. You're addressing your fellow authors and publishers.

I present a very sensitive material in my THEOLOGICAL BOOKS kicking on the face of the Vatican II sect and Armenian monophysites;
So, you’ve written a marmite book. Excellent. Well done.

they IN PURPOSE post negative reviews under my books, which are very important for public to know the truth. How to BAN the review of my books by these paid IDIOTS.
Who are 'they'? These paid idiots you refer to. When you write a marmite book, believe me, people don’t need to be paid to write a negative review. Most of them are quite happy to do it for free!

Anyone and everyone can leave a review of your book. They don’t even need to have bought it or read it. You don’t get a say in who leaves a review, and you certainly can’t ‘switch reviews off’. Not unless your name is Jeff Bezos.

My books are NOT for everybody; only few highly intellectual people can value them and understand the contribution they bring to our society by forming an alternative view. It is not fair to throw me in front of these packs of wolves.
Nobody threw you in front of any wolves. You strolled out and lay down before them, the minute you published your book.

I need deactivate 'reviews' in all. I don't need their mindless slanders, idiotic, vicious comments. No one needs. How deactivate and ban the book reviews? Negative or Positive- all have a ZERO value for me and for the society.
As mentioned previously, you don’t get to say who reviews your book any more than you get to say who reads it.

This is NOT about pair of shoes. This is not about food tasting, or merchandise testing... This is about my INTELLECT, MY COGNITIVE ABILITY, my critical thinking.
If your book is as well written and edited as your post, then your reviews are probably reflecting the fact. Shouting ‘INTELLECT’ and ‘COGNITIVE ABILITY’ doesn’t improve your poor English or lack of grammar.

Please add a feature to deactivate all book reviews. I gave my books to amazon FOR FREE just out of my sense of obligation as a citizen and writer- let this business be at least fair, making it to serve its purpose.
There’s no feature on Amazon to deactivate the review function, nor should there be. It’s a free world (allegedly) with people allowed to have an opinion. Just because it doesn’t coincide with yours is irrelevant.

You didn’t give your books to Amazon FOR FREE. You published them on Amazon, who are a distributor of books (freely or otherwise – it makes no difference), because you wanted your voice heard as you felt you had something important to say.

If people think you’re talking rubbish, that’s their prerogative.

If you don’t like it, there’s always the ‘unpublish’ button on the bookshelf. Try using it instead of coming here throwing your toys out of the pram.

We're not Amazon! And nobody here wants to watch an author having a meltdown on the forum.

Just my thoughts. J

Edit - For the record, Anna, I just checked out your Amazon page, and none of your books are free. And why are you suddenly bleating about a two star review which says "Very disappointed. Poorly written and poorly published" when all the seriously critical 1* reviews were left in 2015? Having taken a quick glance at a few of your 'look insides', I'd say the reviewer was definitely onto something.

2nd Edit - OMG I knew your name sounded familiar!

The only way to eliminate the bad reviews is to write a perfect book, and that's only been done once.

If you don't want to talk about it why the heck did you start a forum post? You just like to be irritated?

Here's a hint on how to lower your blood pressure, when you aren't enjoying an experience and say "bye", actually leave. Because it seems to me like you are seeking out the very thing you claim to be sick of experiencing. Even idiots know not to do that.

I asked a QUESTION.
What question? You went on a full-blown rant, and made demands that your bad reviews be taken down! It's already been explained to you dozens of times that Amazon don't take reviews down, and even if they did, this community IS NOT AMAZON! Is that not LOUD and CLEAR enough for you? For someone who claims to have such a superior intellect, you're pretty thick when it comes to understanding basic English!

You are so low and petty always get personal, for you all are mentally retarded useless vicious breed bored of your life and looking to elevate yourselves by bringing down others.
And what? Yours is the voice of reason and sanity?

I can't believe I'd genuinely forgotten just how unhinged you are, and it appears that after a few years of peace and quiet, you're back with a vengeance. It's bizarre how you claim to hate Amazon so much that you just can't stay away.

Well, as entertaining as your posts are, I'll leave you to your insanity and your insults, in the hope that sooner or later the Zon will block your account permanently.

It's funny how despite your ranting you still haven't found that 'unpublish' button, though, isn't it?

Just my final thoughts! J

I found the review for "Fatima Apparition Turned Into a Trap Of Deception" to be far more logical and well thought out than the book blurb.
Funny how the one who is screaming about things being personal is taking the most simple, helpful suggestions completely personally.

There's a couch somewhere, missing a patient. Abuse is very much in the news at the moment and I notice that most of the vitriol is aimed at certain very polite ladies (I think). Very sad...

Yes. From skimming a few of her book blurbs I realised she actually really does need professional help. I hope she finds it.

It is a syndrome called 'Saliery against Mozart"- mediocrity against the genius inspiration.

It's Salieri, genius, not Saliery. Even in Russian.

@Julia: I recognized that one immediately. I wonder how the Grail Quest for Unpublishing is going? As the last go-round was three years ago, the answer appears to be "exceedingly slowly."

Interesting exchange of insults. Took my mind off the White House for a while.
