I do not believe that her accounts should be stopped but I do believe that she should be banned from posting on these forums. The forums have little to do with revenue unless you are really spamming and marketing.

KDP should ban her for her past behavior from the forums but not stop her from selling her books.

Let us see how she reacts.

It's like Cheers without the faces.

Funny, why is it I visualized Vicky as Carla? ;)

I notice that the delete button has been removed from this thread. (At least on my version) Maybe Amazon is finally going to take a hard look.

Aw... thank you. The cake is one of those marble with buttercream frosting with pink and red roses all over cakes from Publix - mmmm. :)

I'm going to let you down as gently as possible here... I don't think Amazon gives a rat's rear-end about anything anyone says in the KDP forums. Now if it were in .com, well, she would have already been out of here a while back.

I think we are on our own over here, sort of a no man's land forum. Good luck and don't kill each other was likely the last unwritten rule in the posting guidelines. ;)

Well if what you think is true and KDP does not care about what happens, it is about to turn into the Wild West here.

I suggest we keep a file on her most vile posts and just keep republishing them.

Oh yes, the jive administrator emails have been flooding my inbox to the point that I'm missing my actual emails. I'm saving all, but in a way I am doubting that it will start-up again.

Well Thom, I have been cautious with my responses here because of what happened to me over on .com almost a year ago. Remember - KDP doesn't bother to enforce anything now, but they "reserve the right to" and that could be what happens if it does turn into the Wild West.

I posted on the Feed Back Forum. That's it, I am done. This has taken all the fun out of the forums.

Take care,

Thom
