I am not saying that there arent quite a few people here who could stand to tone it down, but there is such a thing as free speech, and you should monitor yourself/children and not rely on others to be perfect upstanding moral citizens.
The reason I put bullied in quotes is because I was not endlessly tormented, nor beat up, but I had very few friends and was made fun of for being overweight in junior high and highschool. Bullying these days is usually quite a bit worse with all the social media. Instead of wallowing in it though, i ignored it and didn't go around the people. If this twelve year old didnt like the responses from others he could have left, no one was tracking his facebook page, or making threatening phonecalls to his house.
Agreed the parents have a role to play but we all know kids will get around these things and we all have a resposibility, as adults, to have a bit more decency. Obviously I'm shocked at the reaction my posting has had but like I say - it's water off a duck's back - however, if he was being subjected to a similar sort of resonse I can only imagine the sort of damage that would do to someone of that age who only wanted to engage in conversation with like-minded people.

Its actually really shocking and everyone involved should be embarrassed and ashamed of themselves. And yet the poor little dude was still privately promoting the forum and those on it to me.

Wtf? Now you're insulting the socio-economic level of the people on this forum?

That's a load of crap.

I don't know what marketing school you went to, but you're out of touch if you seriously think this is how you market an ebook online.

1) You post on a forum using your first post to sell when any first year marketer knows it's about all relationship building before the sale.

2) You get offended and start using a me vs. you stance when people call you out for spamming (which you were since it was your first post).

3) You get into a flame war with someone who runs one of the biggest independent snowboard blogs online that currently gets 1-2 million visits per year.

Not to mention you somehow think calling him a loser who sits in front of a computer all day is a good insult? Wtf, he runs a snowboard blog, that doesn't even make sense.

4) You start insulting the forum for not having the right socio-economic level.

Not that someone's income matters, but who do you think is going to be searching for ebooks about ski bums getting up to stupid shenanigans? People with 5 million dollar houses?

You just alienated the biggest portion of your audience.

Quit now before you make it worse.

Cool. I was actually one of the few staying away from personal insults, but whatever, you can go there if you want.

For the record I don't agree with angrysnowboarder's style, I think he's overly harsh and a dick at times, but I respect the fact that at least I know he's being honest with what he thinks and writes.

Heck, he disagrees with me all the time and has publicly said so on my blog, but I don't act like a 10 year old when he says what he's thinking.

Also, I think there are a few more snowboard blog owners on this forum, you should try to insult every single one of them too, that would be a great way to promote your ebook and get it in front of your ideal audience.

In the end none of this changes the fact that you still have no idea what you're doing with your online ebook marketing campaign despite the fact that you're running marketing campaigns for Coles.

Man someone is a butt hurt little troll.

Lets see what we have here for insults. I'm poor, live in a basement, have never left this country, have not traveled, masturbate profusely, live on the Internet, have a small penis, am a bully, love Internet porn, am I missing any more here?

It's now that I'll point out the people that use these comebacks generally are some amalgamation of all of the above and upset that someone has ousted their Internet prowess with ease.

So why don't you tell us how upset you are that no one gives a flying fuck about your poorly written book? Just an FYI everything you had happen to you in that book at the ripe ole age of 30 I did when I was 18. Didn't take me nearly a third of my life to find myself.

Also if junior decides to off himself from being mocked then Darwinism is working perfectly well and the fittest are surviving. I'm all for that. But to quote the great Walter, "12 year olds dude, 12 year olds!".

Angry Snowboarder Because someone has to call it how they see it!

The key basics of marketing are getting the message to the right audience and I've managed that pretty well cheers bud. This thread alone has got more interest than I ever hoped and sales have definitely shown a reaction to it so I'm pleased as punch!

Even after getting owned over and over, you just keep posting, each one more pathetic and sad than the next... You're like the Energizer Bunny of FAIL.
