Every once and a while we get a comment that in no way relates to what we have written and it causes us to heat up and fly off the handle, and perhaps we even send a nasty comment right back to the commentor, especially when they want us to contact them privately, via their e-mail, to exchange pictures and who knows what else!
If it's not the normal comment that we receive from a hard core fan and friend then we can head off to their home page and tap the BLOCK button, to the right of their profile picture, and then, let it drop, but when they proceed to send the same message onward to every one elses site, like a virus, then it's time we contact booksie and let them know that this is a major problem, and that it needs their attention!
First off, we truly don't know one another from a stranger on any street or in any alley of the world!
Secondly, we are all trusting that what we do share comes from the heart and soul and not from some other place on our person, just for kicks and the thrill of it!
Thirdly, we don't care if we're straight, gay, bi, black, white or green from Mars, or that we love Star Trek or Star Wars, because we are all fellow writers here, members of booksie, that want to share a story in what ever genre we choose to write it.
Fourthly, we read what each other writes if we choose to do so, and we all return the favor and comment and vote on each others work in a worthy manner.
Fifthly, we all gain fans that become close booksie friends, and yes, we consider one another an extended family member after a time, regardless of where on whatever part of any planet we live, or how we live.
Sixthly, there's not a one of us here on booksie that is perfect, nor do we have perfect lives, because not a day goes by that something doesn't comes along to back us into a corner that we find it difficult to get out of, either by mind, body, heart, soul, blood, sweat or tears, without someone or something to rescue us!
Seventhly, remember this, when you come on any of our sites and upset us in any way that's unbooksian in nature, we and our fans are a family, and what hurts one, hurts all, and we all will take measures to insure that things on booksie, and with one another, runs as smoothly as it should.
Eighthly, we welcome you to booksie.com and do make yourself at home here, but...return to top of page and read again!!!
