Thanks... I guess?  
A review I just received on FF.net

Nice job. I like the line "salaciously smug grin", but it didn't seem like
Hermione. Aw, screw this, Snamione is a completely OOC pairing. But very well
done! I hope you R&R my stories too. Thank you for sharing!

Rude much? I've never had someone leave me a review asking for me to review. I am assuming that is not the norm. Plus, she writes pairings I don't care  for, so I doubt I will be doing any "R&R"-ing of her stories, rudeness aside.

It's been my experience that some reviews on ff.net feel like they are coming from a younger crowd than what I am used to at other sites. I am not in anyway equating young with rude, but there is a different maturity level and a different set of rules about what is socially acceptable. Or, I could be way off base. Either way, if I get reviews that seem crazy or rude, I just have to laugh about them. And no, I don't think you are obligated to read someone's story because they read yours.

That was actually one of the first reviews I've ever had that really stuck me as inappropriate--surprising from ff.net from what I understand. I didn't even bother replying to the reviewer. She and I can agree to disagree and leave it at that.

What an ignorant, presumptuous twit! No, this isn't the norm, per se, but FFN does have a disproportionate number of ignorant, presumptuous twits because (on paper and TOS) they cater to the young. I agree that this sounds like someone young and/or inexperienced going about making friends in fandom the wrong way. As someone who was one an obnoxious young person in fandom (I was the unsolicited concrit type who has since seen the error of my ways), I hope you ignore this person, since time is a cure for the young.

I have honestly never seen any one solicit reviews and essentially say my stuff, while well written, is off base in the same review. I've never had anyone ask me to read their work that I wasn't familiar with. All around, it was odd.

I didn't respond to the review and have no intention to unless she say something again. Like you said, time is the only thing that will help her at this point.

I agree with the previous comments and also think you should ignore this review/reviewer. :D

Completely ignored them. I thought about deleting the review, but didn't. That's just one more to the pot!
