Now that's about as meta-ironic as a megachurch pastor tweeting his spleen about bloggers, isn't it?

UPDATE:  As with the 5-stars, so too with the 1-stars.  People "somehow" managed to catch on about the iPad mini give-away

Welcome to mega church marketing. The YRR are just as bad. Hypocritical I might add as they want control of social media just to promote themselves but it is wrong when it analyzes their teaching or behavior.

he who makes the rules, wins.
