There came the time for off-topic reviews removal on GoodReads.

A few hours ago, 5 reviews by mark monday were removed by GoodReads:


They were all written in protest to the new GR review rules. mark has written them to be flagged. Some of us have flagged them, with justifications targeted at the essential unenforceability of the policy, sarcastic or parroting the corporate narrowness underlying the policy of "directly related to the book".


4 out of 5 of the reviews were explicitly against GR, and it alone. They were not "about author behavior" in any shape or form. (There is one exception.)


They have been removed, with mark receiving copies.

Reason: because they were off-topic.
