How to burn your bridges in a very vivid way.
Oh, my goodness...I am picking my bruised jaw up off of the floor, after reading the contents of the link that I am about to share with you. Big Al is a reviewer of independently published books; you can see by perusing his blog that he is very supportive of self-published works and has, at the very least, a decent following. His polite, yet honest review of The Greek Seaman, by Jacqueline Howett, was met with an astounding chain of increasingly hostile responses from said author. As we all know, the internet is forever, and this shocking display of poor manners has now gone viral. This truly is a stark example to self-published authors everywhere of what not to do if your book receives a less-than-stellar review. Let it be a lesson to us all.
