Retroactive Writing Rule

About a week ago I mentioned rules authors are to follow. But I see that many Indie Authors are making some of their own rules. Or rather activating one already in existence.
The most controversy one it’s called:

“Who I don’t want to read my book(s).” And then they list a group of people or individuals they don’t want to read their books.

How are you to stop them when it’s sold publicly? I have no idea.

I asked a legal friend can anyone do that? He said “Yes, they can. Any one who own anything can request that those who they consist to be destructive to their success or anyone who they feel may hinder the forgoing process or success of their work they can request that you do not read it.”

I must say I wasn’t aware that was possible.

He explained that there are some people out there such as competitors, people with grudges, and who knows what they’re thinking nor what their problem is, who will deliberate interfere with a work reaching the public or having an audience. Will say untrue things for personal or business reasons. That’s why this rule was created long ago.

I asked, “Well how do you stop them from reading it?”

He said you can’t, but they can’t publicly comment on it once you point it out that you don’t want them to read it. He then joked saying,

“That couldn’t be a problem today for this is an old retroactive law created during the time when people actually read a lot.”

She took classes in creative writing in college, specializing in ancient myths and legends. and at a local community center while living in Chicago. In college she won the national contest to verbally list every country in the world, it's capital and ingenious language. Her works are mainly horror, fantasy, extreme, and sci-fi as well as, as some may says, "the truly strange predicament and puzzling." Books that I've written are "Clash with the Immortals, and eleven others which are part of the "Unholy Pursuit saga,". She has been working on the Chronicles since 2007. She wished to complete them all before introducing them to public so the readers wouldn't have to for the continuation to be written. The ideas of the book come from classic literature such as whose work greatly influence the world world such as Homer, Sophocles, Herodotus, Euripides, Socrates, Hippocrates, Aristophanes, Plato, Aristotle and many more. The "Book of Enoch" influenced the usage of Azazael as a main character and love interest. I created the primary main character from the Chronicle of Saints. I wanted to show them as real flesh and blood with thoughts, desires and yearning as any human. Not as they are so often depicted. So I created one of my own to show her as a real human that everyone can relate to.
