Angela added a status update
I think Vanity may be back under the guise of 'Jenny' due to a comment on why I put her book on my 'avoid author' shelf. Ignoring her as I think that's the best policy instead of opening up that can of worms again. Also blocked.

P. You don't know her though, do you? How can she say - or know, that the author was nice to you?

That's creepy...

Precisely why I'm ignoring it. I don't know her AT ALL.

I also find it odd that she's made an appearance after all this shit with Ms. Hamilton recently, and both accounts are set to 'private'.

message 4: by Angela (new)

Angela Yeah ok, creepy as there are now three of them now all with private profiles and impersonal/cartoon profile pictures.

message 5: by P. (new)

P. Omg, delete them. All of them. This is insane. It's none of their business.

message 6: by P. (new)

P. Or her business.

message 7: by Angela (last edited Apr 05, 2012 12:09PM) (new)

Angela I'm on it, they're all getting blocked.

Apparently, according to the last comment, we're all part of a 'mob'!

Needless to say, they all rated the book 5 stars.

message 8: by P. (new)

P. Should I comment? If you want them to be ignored, I'll ignore them. But this just makes me mad.

message 9: by Angela (last edited Apr 06, 2012 02:08AM) (new)

Angela Do what you want. I think they/her are wanting a response which is why I'm ignoring her, but that doesn't mean anyone else has to.
We already know she cannot argue eloquently and it's fun car crash-esque viewing.

The only time I have conversed with her was on my review for Lissa's book The Edge of Darkness and she offered to send me a link to download her book as I said I would be quite interested in reading it, little does she know that I feel uncomfortable commenting on a book I've not actually read and wanted to give her (writing) the benefit of the doubt. I'm not going to bother at all now.

John Egbert Why? WHYYY? Why is it any of their business who you decide to avoid?! And how is it a mob mentality?!?!?!?! asdfghjklzxcvbnmkklqfoihiuavwegb

I know, it's fucking ridiculous!
(view spoiler)

message 12: by P. (new)

P. Hey - if someone else comments again (probably her), then I'll comment. Otherwise, I think it's best to ignore people like that.

message 14: by Angela (new)

Angela Precisely Skyla. People like this are only looking for the drama.

message 15: by Angela (new)

Angela Surprise surprise that Hamilton has marked this book as 5 stars also.

message 16: by Shannon (new)

Shannon Nooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo

Sigh ... I knew it was too good to be true that she was gone for good.

Private profile? Check. Impersonal avatar? Check. Rated Vanity's book 5 stars? Check. Less than 50 books shelved and 0-3 reviews? Check.

BLOCK THEM ALL. Then delete that shit. These people are fucking cockroaches. Good LORD they need lives.

message 17: by Shannon (last edited Apr 05, 2012 09:49PM) (new)

Shannon Also, I suggest everyone here block all of these people as well.

message 18: by Shannon (new)

Shannon Archer, has there been any activity on Lissa's books? They ALL have the criteria of being Vanity's sock puppets. Every last one of them.

message 19: by Shannon (new)

Shannon And guess who posted on her blog?

message 20: by Shannon (new)

Shannon Archer, whatever you and Lissa did, I think you need to do it again. The fake accounts all started to come back around the 23rd of last month. GR needs to investigate this again, definitely.

This is just sad.

message 22: by Shannon (new)

Shannon Also, block everyone here as well.

message 23: by Shannon (new)

Shannon And my comment about them wanting to kick the puppy in my profile pic and calling them out for being sock puppets was deleted. They're such awful people.

message 24: by Kat Kennedy (new)

Kat Kennedy Somebody report it to GR. This author was asked to leave GR and I am sure they have her IP on record.

message 25: by Steph (new)

Steph Sinclair Wow. There are so many people in my blocked list now.

Lol, they're on to you. They're being creepy little stalkers - looking at my profile pics and monitoring this update.

And Kat, I'm sure GR has the IPs of all the people who were kicked off the first time, so I'm hoping this "new" group disappears as well. And by group I mean the one person who is talking to herself.

message 27: by Angela (new)

Angela I've screencapped their comments. Will work my way through those links now, thanks THT (and everyone else!)

message 28: by Lucy (new)

Lucy *sigh* Someone's off her medication again and talking to herself madly in a dark corner of the internet. I'm flagging the reviews and comments.

message 29: by Steph (new)

Steph Sinclair Shadow and Bone!

message 30: by John (new)

John Egbert Why are there so many people I have to block?!

It shouldn't be this way. IT SHOULDN'T BE THIS WAYYYYEEEE. ;A;

I gave it 5 stars. I loved it. I think it has the potential to heal your brain.

Jessie  (Ageless Pages Reviews) I gave it 5 stars, too, Paige. It's pretty refreshing and fun.

message 33: by Shannon (new)

Shannon So, all of their reviews have been deleted. It's a step in the right direction, at least.

message 34: by [deleted user] (new)

Hi everyone. I saw this status update through Lucy, and added it to my shelf. And I have my very own shark bait:

I just want to know how to handle this. I am not upset, I just want these accounts deleted since it is a poison to the site, and I do not want the younger reviewers targeted.

Thanks :)

message 35: by Kat Kennedy (new)

Kat Kennedy Lyn, I would just politely thank him for his opinion but direct him to share it from his own shelves and reviews.

message 36: by [deleted user] (new)

Thank you. Will do.

message 37: by Kat Kennedy (new)

Kat Kennedy At this point, Lyn, I would suggest blocking the accounts if they continue to bully you. You are doing very well at being composed. Excellent job.

message 38: by [deleted user] (new)

Day of the Trolls. WOW.

message 39: by [deleted user] (new)

Thank you. They're wanting a fight. Good thing I know rule #1 about the internet: Never talk about the internet.
I meant, never feed the trolls.

message 40: by Angela (new)

Angela Lyn you've behaved admirably in how you have dealt with them. I chose to completely ignore them as I had a feeling they were looking for an argument and to feed the flames for their behaviour, which, judging by your link you shared, I'm sorry to see that I was correct.

message 41: by Amanda (new)

Amanda The Book Slayer Oh Holy Crap! Who is the Lissa we are blocking?

Thanks for the heads up guys.

message 42: by Steph (new)

Steph Sinclair I'd just block and delete. They aren't insterested in meaningful conversation, just to stir shit up.

No, Lissa is awesome! Unless there is another Lissa joining the trolls that I'm not aware of.

message 44: by Amanda (new)

Amanda The Book Slayer Oh thanks. Sorry really confused. It happens often. Thanks.

message 45: by Angela (new)

Angela I'm on my phone and cuts off regularly but when I get to a computer I'll pm you about what happened last time. Unless someone else on this thread would like to do so?

message 46: by Amanda (new)

Amanda The Book Slayer Thanks Angela.

Thanks for the support. I find this beyond amazing that this is considered acceptable.
I was thinking today about the whole thing. I was at work, so I applied this whole situation to my career. If I acted like this, I would be FIRED. And rightfully so. I wish the authors would realize that the readers are "firing" them for their unacceptable behaviors.

message 48: by Amanda (new)

Amanda The Book Slayer I'm not. Lol got confused.

message 49: by Shannon (last edited Apr 07, 2012 04:30PM) (new)

Shannon The best thing to do is to block anyone who has given her book 5 stars and has a private profile. Trust me on this one. This newest one, especially. That one is very obviously Divers since he used the same profile picture. He was the main instigated and was one of the ones kicked off the last time. Everyone, block him. Nothing good will come of him having access to your profiles or reviews.

message 50: by Amanda (new)

Amanda The Book Slayer Thanks
