1. Review requests from people who have clearly not read my review policy.
2. Review requests from people who have read my review policy, but think it shouldn't apply to them. You are not as special snowflake. Ignoring my policies is not going to score you any points.
3. E-mails from authors that contain spelling or grammatical errors. If you can't compose a well-written sentence in your e-mail, I'm not going to want to read 300 pages of your prose.
4. Book blog tours.
5. E-mails from authors asking when their book will be reviewed. For the record, this is a good way to get your book put on the bottom of the stack.
6. E-mails from authors that are addressed "to blogger" or "to whom it may concern". If you want me to review your book, at least try to pretend you have researched who I am.
7. Offers of "free content" for my blog. I write all of the content for my blog. I don't need your help. I don't want your help. I've made this clear in my blog policies that you clearly didn't bother to read.
8. The fact that I'm not wealthy enough to attend all of the Cons that I want to attend.
9. Blogs that copy or plagiarize the content of other blogs. Do your own damn reading and writing without copying the work of other bloggers.
10. Authors who write terrible books and are then shocked and outraged when their work doesn't receive glowing reviews.
