Romance forum on Amazon is evil

So, I may have been a little over-excited on my last post and it may have come across differently to different people, I understand that. But boy, the reaction I got from  Amazon’s Romance forum is just plain evil. First of all, the fact that these people are actually taking the time to verbally abuse me is beyond my understanding. I for one don't spend my days trashing people I don't know. They seriously must have no lives. I mean, I apologized twice on the forum for posting what they thought was spam, but the attacks just got so personal I find it disturbing. Why are these people so mean? Here are some of the postings. Please tell me if I’m wrong about these people.

    Read his profile. A minor in "Critical Thinking". Now who would have thought so?

    That is truly pathetic. Before everyone had a cell phone this girl in high school wasn't interested in you, so what like what 15-20 years ago this happened and you are excited that you now get to reject her on facebook. Seriously you never got over that and moved on from it in all that time, that is very, very sad.

    Let me give you a clue, Ostroff. Even if you posted that little blurb in the "right" forum you would have at least a few posts from women wondering how it was possible that you managed to fit your head in that particular body cavity due to the fact that your head seems to be about the size of Rhode Island.

Being an author doesn't give you any respect here in fact even being a NYT best selling author doesn't give you any (cough, Laurell K Hamilton, cough). What gives you respect is something that you seem to be lacking. You probably published that little story everywhere you could, didn't you? And now you whine what meanies we all are, let me put this in words simple and clear enough for you-what a dumb*** you are.

Let us all celebrate with dumb*, I mean Neil, how truly wonderful he is...

    And, yet, you haven't removed the post.
Methinks you are lovin' the attention. Another indication that you are still living in your high school years.

Dog Lover says:   
    The title of the thread is a strong indicator as well. "Better than sex?" ... as if he would know.
Maybe (probably not, though) better than the hand jobs he's had to rely on all these years.

R. Mahala Burlingame says:   
    It must be hard for him to find a place to live, that ego takes up a lot of space.

Now, am I wrong here? I mean really folks, who has this kind of time and hate? They don't even know me. Please let me know if I'm in the wrong here.
