I Guess I'm the Book Bitch

I was looking at my website stats, and I noticed some hits from a bulletin board. I went over to check it out. Turns out it's some site for soap makers, but they also have a topic heading for contests. In the side where it lists the most recent post was "The Book Bitch October Book Giveaway." (or something like that) I didn't click on it to check, but I'm guessing I'm the Book Bitch. I was determined not to let this bother me, but it does. Part of me is tempted to post and say:

Dear Soap Makers,

The book bitch put up the exhausting list of rules because the last time she ran a contest, a sweepstakes site posted the answer to the question on their website and hundreds of people copied the answer and inundated her. The book bitch changed the question more than a half a dozen times, but alas, the sweepstakes people insisted on cheating time and again. So, the book bitch was determined to spell out for the sweepstakes people that cheating would not be tolerated. The book bitch asks you to consider how you would feel if you visited, read the excerpt, answered the question, and then an hour later, someone posted the answer on a bulletin board and hundreds of other people who did not follow the rules as you did, entered. How would you feel if one of those people won when you played fair and square? The book bitch is big on fairness. She's just funny that way.

Love and kisses,
The Book Bitch

PS. If anyone visits the site, I do not want to know if I am the book bitch. Being only 99% sure is a comfort. If it's not me, then I would like to know. :-)
