So... this is a real thing:

http://stopthegrbullies.com/

The people who run this so-called anti bullying site are hypocrites, liars, slanderers and the very thing they claim to be fighting against. Shaming, defaming and bullying reviewers? Well done, you idiots.

Skyla WTF? Seriously these people have no lives.


message 2: by Kyle (new)

Kyle That is one of the most tasteless, disgusting things I've ever seen in my whole life! Is there a way to report this for abuse and have it taken down?


Crystal Starr Light Oh. My. God. This is absolutely sick. What, a person makes an honest review, gets attacked for that review and the REVIEWER is the bully???


message 4: by Vanessa (last edited Jul 09, 2012 03:51PM) (new)

Vanessa You know, I would NEVER go out of my way to make somebody's life miserable. Reviewing would be considered bullying if we went:

"This novel is so awful I wish a horrible death upon the author, who is ugly and a waste of human resources."

Has anybody ever done that? No. From what I've seen, people write it more like: "Hey, this is what I didn't like, this made me angry," and they talk about the author the same way you would in an English essay, i.e. 'Shakespeare clearly uses ___'.


message 5: by Howdy YAL (new)

Howdy YAL Hmm, who bets Vanity is behind it. The whole thing is sick beyond sick. This is actual bullying and I hope the site has been reported.


message 6: by Nicole (new)

Nicole This is disgusting. I can't believe this site actually exists.


message 7: by Kyle (new)

Kyle I've been searching for a report button, but I can't seem to find it.


message 8: by Andrea (new)

Andrea I just can't get over anyone calling Ridley a _minion_.

It's really sad to see this site. I was hoping the drama was dying down.

Vanessa My god, you guys. Look at Lucy's page.

Above is a screencap of her profile pictures, which include her cartoon ego and several photos of her dog. Yes, yes, nice puppy, very cute. As of yet, we do not have a real photo of Lucy. It is only a matter of time, however, as Stitch and his crew are busy at work searching for one. Interestingly enough, however, it is usually the DEFCON 3 bullies who, out of cowardice, will not reveal actual pictures of themselves.


message 10: by Ceilidh (new)

Ceilidh That's straight up bullying and harassment. No excuse for it.

Is it just me or does the "What you can do" segment read like it's intended for vanity authors?

If you are ever a witness to an attack on an author or authors, you can:
1. Contact them and let them know they are not alone
2. Direct them to this website
3. Vote on reviews of their books that you like
4. Buy their books and leave honest reviews
5. Shelve their books positively on Goodreads

The site isn't hosted by Wordpress as they are only using Wordpress as a blog script so they can't be reported to them.

The domain was registered through GoDaddy so that might be an option to report to. If you look up the Whois information for the domain you can see who registered the domain. My guess is that the person used a fake name and address though. If that's the case the domain can be reported for false information. But maybe this person actually exists. I'm not familiar with US addresses so I don't know if it's valid.

Not only that, but Cassandra Clare and Becca Fitzpatrick books are listed there too. I bet they're just trying to figure out the books that aren't too well-liked on GR.


message 17: by Ceilidh (new)

Ceilidh Could someone please screencap the website just in case?


message 18: by Katie (new)

Katie Also, how creepy is it that they are actively trying to find out everyone's names? Don't they have anything better to do than stalk reviewers? Excuse me while I go edit my profile to make sure I stay anonymous.


message 19: by The Holy Terror (new)

The Holy Terror I'm a sexual deviant guys. My name is Shannon and I have a husband named Jesse. And I live in Carlsbad. And I've been to two restaurants in Carlsbad in the last two years. How exciting. I'm pretty sure everyone here knew most of (if not all) of this stuff from posts I've made publicly. Well, not the sexual deviant stuff ... HOW DARE THEY! : \

Excuse me while I don't give a fuck.

Haha, that's exactly what I said to someone on Twitter. Good luck with the spankings your husband should be giving you.

Already done.

The part that baffles me is why they feel the need to know someone's real name, address and martial status. It's very creepy and stalkerish and ugh.


message 30: by Vanessa (new)

Vanessa And Kat Kennedy having a drinking problem! Oh no, an adult who enjoys a tipple now and again and sometimes posts drunk online is a haggard old alcoholic.

Goddamn, these people.

And EVEN IF YOU WERE, who the fuck cares? It's your personal life, and has absolutely nothing to do with your book reviews.

(Just to be clear, I don't think you're a sexual deviant THT.)

Who said anything about sex? According to their comments he should be disciplining you.

I mean, come on, we all know who this is, right?

Just before she and her minions were kicked off, they were talking about how I want to cheat on my husband and that Lucy doesn't show her face because she's obese.

She's obsessed with us, and apparently my marriage as well. Haters gonna hate.

We're going to have to think like Tyrion in s2 of Game of Thrones. (Y'know, where he tests the loyalty of the small council? Anybody? :))

Their comments discuss what I do and do not like during sex. And that I would enjoy being spanked.

I type this while laughing, because it's fucking hilarious. Oh man. The lengths these people go to are insane.

Do you have any links or screencaps to this? I must have missed all this.


message 38: by Brandi (new)

Lol, I know. They were referencing a discussing John and I were having about LKH's book, and they pulled one comment out of context to make it look like I was some sort of deviant for discussing the cervix, clitoris, and orgasms. She didn't want to screencap it because of how disgusting my comment was.


message 40: by Steph (last edited Jul 09, 2012 05:08PM) (new)

Steph I want to laugh but it's so terrible I cannot. I mean, telling people what places to find people at in public? That's psychotic.


message 41: by Lucy (last edited Jul 09, 2012 05:51PM) (new)

Lucy At least they got your location right, THT. I don't know where they got the stuff about Atlanta. I've been pretty open about the fact that I live in NY. The person who said they were coming to 'see' me in their screen cap is not my friend... and that message was deleted before I ever saw it. It's really weird and creepy. They made up stuff to seem like they successfully stalked me?

As for the anti-bullying posters. They're abusing images for real organizations that should be notified. Their site is about bullying, not against it.

The Holy Terror Ceilidh wrote: "Do you have any links or screencaps to this? I must have missed all this."

It was literally the day they were kicked and Lucy didn't screencap it. You can see all the evidence I have of her in the comments of my review with them discussing where I live and kicking Lucy's puppy like a football.

Hahaha, the way I read it he should spank you because you're not 'off getting a job' my brain may have shut down to see the "sexual deviancy" part. Not sure how that's sexually deviant anyway...

I'm still mad about that and now the pictures of my dog. Pop'N'Fresh needs to leave my dog out of it.


message 48: by Lucy (new)

Of all the things to exploit, the anti-bullying movement... that is so sick and fucked up, why would you even do that? (I don't know why I keep asking these rhetorical questions.)

Here you go.

And I reported the site hours ago to godaddy. I am the information-gatherer, after all! I feel like we're playing an RPG here ...
