This isn’t a story. It’s a reaction to recent cynical manipulation of the voting system on this site against my stories, some of which had been in the ‘Highest rated’ category for a considerable time. I’m aware that something like this happened on the previous story site “1hss”, where the moderator had to introduce an algorithm to stop people rating stories with a ‘1’ without even having taken the time to read them. This happened to a new story that I published a few days ago (which I then removed) and yesterday my stories were targetted to remove them from view, probably by someone trying to replace them with their own.
I’ve been submitting stories to sites for 20 years and I know that some people have enjoyed them. They take time, they take effort, which is wasted when this happens. I’ve now removed all of my stories and won’t be publishing again. Thank you to those who have taken the time to post comments or to email me over the years.
