Serial 1 star reviewer/spammer

I have a number of developer colleagues and some of them have been "hit" by what seems to be a serial 1 star reviewer.
On further research it seems evident:
http://android.metricscat.net/user/b...well-72362064/

From 117 apps reviewed, this person has an average of 1.7

What gives this average slightly higher than 1 is probably her 5 star review of "Lush Sex Stories" and a 4 star review of "Bible Slots". I am just wondering if anyone else has been targeted by this person, or any other familiar stories and any ideas on dealing with this.

That person appears to mainly be reviewing Casino games and is looking for play not behind a paywall. That is probably why so many 1 star reviews. Although his harsh, i don't think his a serial 1 star reviewer

Please follow me on twitter @JamesDestined I post lots of development from both my game creation and professional development.

That could be a reason for some but the developers I know of who have been targeted do not have pay wall. There are no restrictions, just occasional ads. Either this person is very angry most of the time or something more suspicious.

I think his just angry in general. Ads make some people angry too. Even his "good" reviews are hardly good. It isn't like spamming loads with 1's so someone will find his 5 star app. Probably just a gambling addict.

We've had her treatment also. I responded to it on Google Play with something along the lines of "thanks for not missing us out on your 1-star spree of every app on the store bar your sex app".

She was mainly moaning about adverts in a free game, so I presume she thinks we should work for nowt.

I'd guess she must work for free also, putting no value on game development as she does. But judging by the amount of games she has time to hate bomb, I think it's us funding her life on benefit too.

*sigh*
