On the other hand, if a reviewer were to attack an individual, then it would be a violation of the TOS. (And I have seen this. Stuff like, "the previous reviewer is obviously an idiot who wouldn't know a good book if he tripped over it" or "X must be in the pay of the publisher to write such tripe", etc. Fortunately, these are rare.)
ETA Title Touchstone (the book is now out and looks really, really good--lots of detail); I'm not sure how to add the right Touchstone for the author though, since there are at least 2 authors with the same name (John Bolton).
I am always amused when someone uses poor spelling (and, often, worse grammar) to attack someone else's intelligence. It tells me exactly how much credence I should give that opinion!
I have no guilt on this one, as the author is a creative writing professor at a major college and shouild know better to make mistakes such as he made.
