A sample of the most annoying reviews received on my drabbles:

On the "Hermione has to make a choice" one, from Someone Reading: whoa! time-out! Hermione and Draco? and what the heck kinda chapter is this? Too short! I've heard of giving a little, but this is ridiculous!

Write more now! :)

On the "multiple Smiths" one, there are two annoying reviews:

1, from Jennifer Jolie, who at least attempts to be nice about it) Sweeite, this could use some filling out... it's way too short. Agent Smith understanding arousal could easily be made into a few huge laugh-out-loud chapters on their own if done properly. If you keep it coming... and darling, sex will never be the equivalent of love. ^^ You could raise that.

2, from Micer, who's just an idiot) I feel cheated here... didn't think to check the word count but... yesh... I feel like someone said I was getting milk and cookies and instead had a glass thrown at my head.

Normally I make some comment about bare bones on detail/plot/ect - but this doesn't even have bones. Its a jelly fish of a story, a single celled organism - why in the living heck did you even put this up? On this one, even the next reviewer thought this comment was funny, and presumably not in a good way

Some other people said they were too short as well. Other reviewers got it, so what is it with these morons?!

That is funny. Very comic.

Tragicomic, I should say.

I think you can't explain the lack or misuse of braincells in this world. Ff.net just seems to attract most of it - like wasps to a jar of jam, you might say... *looks innocent*

Next time you submit to FF.net, don't forget to brief on what a drabble is. Write a long, long author's note or something. I mean, seriously. There are lotsa morons runnin around FF.net O_o BTW, what's your pen name there?

People are brainless. They shall be dealt with. By 'dealt with', I mean 'executed for their stupidity', of course. ;)

The problem with ff.net is that people just don't read the author's notes....On T&T whenever a chapter had slashy stuff in, I would put at the top 'This chapter contains slash, so if you don't like it, don't read it'....

And I still had a review that said this:

I'm not thankful for the snog! It's disgusting!

And on an earlier chapter:

Harry isn't gay!

M/M slash is very bad!

Why do people not read the author's notes?....They're there for a reason!!!

Sort of like reviewing a haiku and saying, "Hey! How come it only has three lines in it? Write more!"

*smacks forehead*

Yeah, you should probably explain what a drabble is. Whether it will make sense to the denizens of the pit of voles remains to be seen.

*pouts* I liked your multiple Smiths drabble. It gave me a happy.

I've know nothing, I've seen nothing and I'm saying nothing.
