Sara W (sarawesq) | 2153 comments Do NOT try to spam this group. I will delete your topic. Messages that somehow relate to the group's theme will be tolerated, but topics such as tarot card readings WILL NOT BE TOLERATED. I will delete you as a member of the group, and you will be blocked from rejoining.

Sara W (sarawesq) | 2153 comments Regular members don't need to worry about this! Some new person came in to post a topic strictly to get people to go to their tarot card reading website or some nonsense. We're getting kind of big, so it's not surprising that people may try to do this. I won't delete or block any regularly participating member. I'm just trying to protect the group!

Yup, that's the same thing I had. At first I thought the person was just really, really enthusiastic about the group, lol! At least this hasn't happened that often (at least not in this group).

I had insomnia so I flagged them pretty much as they were posted. Whether GR has noticed or gotten to it yet, who knows? They're a bit busy just now. (Sigh.)

I would rather they spend their time going after spammers than what they're working on now :/

What are they working on now?


Susanna - Censored by GoodReads (susannag) | 378 comments They have changed TOS without a general site-wide alert (just a thread in Feedback that is truly, seriously enormous), and are busy deleting reviews and shelves that are not now, but were when created, against the new TOS.

Many of us, affected or otherwise, think this is censorship, and are very unhappy campers.

For the Feedback thread, if you want to weed through it: http://www.goodreads.com/topic/show/1... .

I wouldn't have Kara's job right now for anything.

I am very unhappy with this, especially the way they dumped and ran on a Friday afternoon with no warning. That said, I'm pretty sure Kara is just doing what she's told to do, and I wouldn't want her job either.


Susanna - Censored by GoodReads (susannag) | 378 comments Kara's not saying much there, because I suspect there's not much she is allowed to say. No, I'm angry, but it's not directed at Kara.

Same here. She is getting a beating from some quarters, unfortunately. I've been on the firing line from ticked off customers when I'm just doing my job (collecting money), so it isn't always fun.

Hmmm, very interesting, I'll have to check it out.

Thank you Sara. I have flagged a couple as recent as last night!
