Recently, our own Travis Luedke brought it to our attention that a certain “gentleman” by the name of Andrew Domonkos has been spamming the tar out of Goodreads, and had set up some sock-puppet accounts to assist him in doing so. (For those of you who don’t know, a “sock-puppet” is a fictitious account created to amass a large amount of voting and rating power on any given subject or book.)
So, I went and had a look-see at Messr. Domonkos, and lemme tell you, this guy is spreading muck in every corner of Goodreads. Not only has he created over 100 fake accounts, he has also run wild and given 1-star ratings to many, many books on Listopia.
Quite a number of authors want to have this idiot removed from Goodreads and his IP address blocked. If you feel strongly about this (and remember, if your book is listed on Goodreads, you’re fair game), then please click on the cover above, and join the conversation.
