I was scanning a forum the other day when I saw that covers "made up" a capper and named him Guillermo Sanchez (to appeal to the latino market) and now they have done it again by "creating" a capper and making him a 21 year old (to appeal to the college aged market). Saw it on sbrforum. Does anyone know anything about this? Can anyone confirm if they have ever met either of these two people?

Its a reality that Covers is kind of shady.  Just reference back to the BetED scandal and Covers involvement.  They ranked books based on their advertising dollars, not merit.   

Covers is a cool site and there is some value to us, but be weary of what you read around here.

The Duchess:
I quite agree with you. And the moral of that is: Be what you would seem to be, or if you'd like it put more simply: Never imagine yourself not to be otherwise than what it might appear to others that what you were or might have been was not otherwise than what you had been would have appeared to them to be otherwise.

Alice: But I don't want to go among mad people.

The Cat:
Oh, you can't help that. We're all mad here. I'm mad. You're mad.

Alice:
How do you know I'm mad?

The Cat:
You must be. Or you wouldn't have come here.

Alice:
And how do you know that you're mad?

The Cat:
To begin with, a dog's not mad. You grant that?

Alice:
I suppose so,

The Cat:
Well, then, you see, a dog growls when it's angry, and wags its tail when it's pleased. Now I growl when I'm pleased, and wag my tail when I'm angry. Therefore I'm mad.

The Duchess: Be what you would seem to be -- or, if you'd like it put more simply -- Never imagine yourself not to be otherwise than what it might appear to others that what you were or might have been was not otherwise than what you had been would have appeared to them to be otherwise.

Alice: I've had nothing yet, so I can't take more.

The Hatter:
You mean you can't take less; it's very easy to take more than nothing.

The White Queen: Can you do addition? What's one and one and one and one and one and one and one and one and one and one?

Alice:
I don't know. I lost count.

Alice: And how many hours a day did you do lessons?

The Mock Turtle:
Ten hours the first day, nine the next, and so on.

Alice:
What a curious plan!

The Gryphon:
That's the reason they're called lessons, because they lessen from day to day.

I just think it's funny as garbage. darn buying a pick I make my own plays. These cappers all suck person. I check a few of their records "longterm" and all are horrible. They only post their last 10 plays but some dudes on sbrforum have been tracking them and they all suck person:
