Why authors shouldn’t respond to reviews

It’s been said time and time again, not just by reviewers, but also by authors themselves: authors should not respond to reviews.

A simple “thank you” is all right, but once an author starts responding to bad reviews, then it’s no longer fun and games.

A recent example of “bad author behavior” can be found here, on a review of “Burnt Norton”, the latest novel of author Caroline Sandon.
