My email box this morning was CRAMMED with emails generated by these sources in an explosion of orders all since last night. I doubt Peter realizes that by making illogical, unfair, and mean-spirited attacks on my releases, he is really arousing the anger of scores of fans who have bought VoiceMasters CDs in the past, know them to all contain unreleased material, and be of top professional quality.
It's as if even the fence-straddlers swing into action and hurry up and order the CD because with Atkinson panning it, they know it must really be something special.
He confers sort of a "seal of approval" on it, paradoxically. The more pedantic he becomes in posting posting posting and repeating the same propaganda-like lies about them (in the belief that if you say a lie often enough eventually people will accept it as being the truth), the more he actually SPURS sales.
He's never learned that the best way to harm a release is through complete indifference. Not mention it. Not talk about it. Pretend it doesn't exist, and is not worth your time. Instead, he gets himself all worked up.
Think about it. 81 PAGES of Amazon filled with his crazy comments about matters far afield from the products at hand, even chastising me for not attending the reburial of Mary Reeves 800 miles away, when members of her own family (the Whites) didn't even attend.
So even though I find Atkinson a mild annoyance, it brings to mind the old line, "I'm laughing all the way to the bank."
