Janis Hinkle: Corporal James Portolan

So it does appear that poor little cyber criminal, stalker, harasser, and fellow Goodreads bully, Janis Hinkle, decided to report Rick Carufel's blog post as "threatening", to local law enforcement.

What's the matter, Janis? Afraid of an elderly old man on disability? 

You stupid bitch.

Anyhow, I am merely posting this to see if Janis Hinkle is willing to report me. I would LOVE to be contacted by Officer Corporal James Portolan, School Liaison Officer of the South San Francisco Police Department.

It wouldn't be the first time the bullies sent law enforcement to my door. The last time backfired in their stupid bully faces. This one will too.

Anyhow, you know Janis Hinkle by now, I'm sure. She hides under the names of Anna Karenina and runs the blog ".38 Caliber" under the name of "Mahala". The 2nd grade teacher who spends her days online stalking, harassing and bullying people when she should be teaching her class. A woman who loves to get sauced every night with her cats because she's so all alone because no man will touch her skanky ass with a ten foot pole.

Teaching her class? .... I shudder at the thought of young minds in her evil hands. 

Anyhow, I am going to post a screenshot from Rick's blog post which reveals her school information and emails etc. I am only doing this to get the attention of Corporal James Portolan. Once this officer contacts me, I will take this post down. Then and only then. I just don't want to miss the opportunity to talk to Officer Portolan about Janis Hinkle. 

Hey Janis, if you and your bully friends want to go after someone, forget Rick Carufel, he's too old to be of any threat to you. Come after me instead. I love bully bullshit games. I'm not as elderly as you people like to think. 

If you're reading this Corporal James Portolan, my contact information is located up above. Feel free to get a hold of me via email. I can then give you my number and we can chat. We can chat all day about Janis Hinkle and her bully friends. I can send you links and screenshots that will make you see that Janis and her bully friends are the real criminals. They are the ones you need to be investigating. But instead of going after Rick Carufel, how about you grow some balls and come after a real man? Come after me! 

I'm waiting.


If anybody wishes to contact Officer Portolan and tell him about the activities online by one Janis Hinkle, and or the criminal activities of her bully friends, you may contact him at these numbers below.

650-877-8900 (Main)
650-829-7239 (Voice mail)

I will probably call him later next week if he doesn't call me first.

The bullies want to drag law enforcement into this, then let's drag them into it.

"Mystery And Crime Thrillers" Update

So it appears that "Mystery And Crime Thrillers" have taken their book group to Facebook. A place where the Goodreads bullies can not get to them. Obviously, Patrick Brown is helpless to help the bullies with their agenda on Facebook. Hopefully, they will find peace there after they were invaded and attacked by Patrick Brown's thugs.

Jenni did post a message to her members on Facebook and the following is what she wrote: 

" Hi all. Goodreads bullies have started stalking and harassing me. They are taking it out on Jac just because he happened to be the only writer on the moderators list and he is a friend. More than half the bullies are GR librarians. 

Goodreads is helping them because half the bullies are librarian friends and because the news reports I put on the bullying thread showing the truth about Lauren Pippa being bullying is damaging to Goodreads. They are afraid that Readers and publishing professionals on the site knowing about these articles will lose them customers and advertising. They were particularly angry with me about putting up a news report with the evidence screen shots bullying Lauren Pippa, and about the sexual roleplay sites between adults and children on goodreads on that bullying thread.

Jack is the next Lauren Pippa. The bullies are making up a lot of lies about us to cover up the truth in the news reports and to harass. It is not really worth it for me. And I can't just shut up about reports like sexual roleplay with children, and evidence screenshots of GR librarians bullying sweet young girls. If I am there I WILL post them for the members. Our members need to know about the reports to protect themselves and their families. The only way that I can stop posting the news reports is for me to not be there. If I am not there my friends don't want to be either.

They are making up a lot of lies to distract everybody from the news reports of sexual roleplay and Lauren Pippa bullying. Don't believe it.

I started the reading club because electronics is a male dominated field and I loved the girls I met there. I never meet a like minded female friend at work. It took a lot of time, all my free time in fact- 17-20 hours a week- to keep it up. it took money too. The club will die without me. I loved it. I miss the girls terribly. I'm gonna now develop my real life reading group at the local library - potlucks, chocolates, and wine. :^) We already have 7 members, but I have interest from friends I have contacted to take that up to 19 this coming weekend. What fun! :^)"

- Jenni

Everyone here at The Looking Glass, and I'm sure STGRB, wishes you all the best, Jenni. Best of luck to your new FB group, your Library Reading Club, and to all your future endeavors. I'm really sorry that your group got side-swiped like that by the bullies. You and your members didn't deserve the treatment you got from the bullies and from Patrick Brown, Kara Erickson and Emily Finley. What's worse, to know that this same thing could very well happen again to another unsuspecting author, Goodreads member, and GR book group like "Mystery and Crime Thrillers".

Take care.

Amazon Goodreads Bullies Gone Too Far

I just received this screenshot of the bullies now debating if they should go after Rick Carufel and try and somehow get his SSI Disability cut off. Now, first of all, I don't think that will ever happen, and secondly, what normal person would even think about that? How is this not stalking? Harassing? What the hell does this have to do with anything? Now can you see what Mr. Carufel has been going through with these people?

Goodreads Bully Patrick Brown

It has come to my attention that the Goodreads bullies once again, got their way. After their attack on Lauren Howard/Pippa, and wishing her death, rape and sodomy, they then turned their attention on a legitimate book group on Goodreads after one of their members stumbled across the story on lauren and like Lauren, asked a simple question. That was, "Does Goodreads really have bullies?" That group was "Mystery And Crime Thrillers".

Just by asking that question, and the members quietly, and calmly, discussing their opinions among themselves, many of the Goodreads bullies, after catching wind of it, joined the group for no other reason than to start trouble. From my sources, the mods themselves, these bullies used foul language and were extremely rude. Clear violations of how this once peaceful group operated.

When the bullies were warned about their language and behavior, and the rules, repeatedly by the mods, the bullies not only ignored the mods of the group, but fired back at them with more obscenities.

These bullies did not join that group to participate in their book discussions. They went there for one reason and one reason only, to harass the members and mods. To disrupt their peace and harmony and to destroy their group. They invaded these peaceful people's space and tried to take it over.

When they were finally banned from the group for their language and behavior, the bullies vowed to destroy them through their higher up connection on Goodreads. Those connections are paid Goodreads staff members Kara Erickson and Emily Finley.

In my previous post, "Bullies Need Not Apply", I showed you a threat made by .38 Caliber blogger, "Mahala", where she says that all hell will break loose on that group and their mods. She made good on that threat as not only did they attack author Jac Wright, who was one of the mods of the group, but they also attacked a non-author, by the name of Jenni, who was another mod of that group.

Jenni, as it was just reported to me, has been banned from Goodreads completely. Simply because she defended the rules of her group when the bullies invaded their group with nasty language and even worse attitudes.

Now, I just learned that "Mahala", the one behind the hate blog, .38 Caliber, is really Anna Karenina. And as we all know now, thanks to Rick Carufel, that Anna Karenina's real name is Janis Hinkle, a 2nd grade teacher in the Daly City community of California.

Yes, a bully with multiple sock accounts. How many times have heard about this? That these bullies operate under various sock accounts? STGRB has uncovered this kind of thing before with other bullies.

Patrick Brown, you should be ashamed of yourself. So should Kara Erickson and Emily Finley. I will be doing a story on those two shortly. It is already scheduled. I also will doing future stories now on other paid Goodreads employees. I will be giving them all the attention they deserve. But as for Patrick Brown himself, he has proven to the world that he is nothing but a bully himself. A worthless, pussy little coward.

I am calling out for everyone who has a Goodreads account to go in and delete it. Send the message loud and clear that this kind of tolerance for bullying innocent people will no longer be tolerated. Send the message to Patrick Brown and the idiots at Amazon who endorse this kind of cyber-criminal behavior that this kind of thing is not right. Hit them where it hurts, in their membership numbers. Send the message to that other pussy coward, Otis Chandler, that his creation, Goodreads, is no longer a decent place for anyone who loves books.

Don't just abandon your account, delete it! Make that statement! Send that message!

This incident is a clear indication that this issue is not about authors and or reviews. The fact that non-authors are getting banned as well for doing nothing more than trying to preserve the integrity of their book group is atrocious! This incident clearly shows that everyone and anyone is fair game for the bullies. 

Word is getting out there though. Jenni and Jac have been in contact with several major news websites and are in the process of deciding to take their story national. You think the publicity that Lauren's story got attention? You ain't seen nothing yet. This story is going to put hers to shame. There will be no way for Patrick Brown to spin this. Nor the bullies. But I'm sure they will try. Oh yes, I am sure they will try with all of their sock puppets too. 

Keep digging your hole, Patrick Brown, Otis Chandler, The Goodreads Bullies, Kara Erickson, Emily Finley. Now here is my threat to all of you bullies .... you're going down! 

Let the countdown begin ..... 10 - 9 - 8 ..........

I'm Carroll Bryant .... and this is The Looking Glass.

Things We Learned Today:

* This is not about reviews!

* Patrick Brown graduated from bully supporter, to just plain BULLY!

* Goodreads staff members (all of them!) support and endorse bulllying

* Nobody is safe on Goodreads except for the bullies

* Carroll wants everyone to DELETE their Goodreads account

Gen X Strikes Again

And we're back .... to GenX being stupid is as stupid does. I knew she couldn't refrain too much longer from showing her ignorance. (Or should I say, stupidity?) She finally got around to repsonding to Rick Carufel's post "Eye For An Eye, Troll For A Troll" on his blog where he abruptly sends a message to all the bullies who have been stalking him, harassing him, and bullying him for years with threats of getting hackers to find out who they are. (When I say finally responded, I mean it took her hours where I thought it would take her like 30 minutes) You're slipping Gen dear.

In fact, they even doc dropped him, posting his address all over the internet from an article released by a local Minnesota newspaper, showing his arrest record from nearly 20 years ago.

Nice going there, bullies. More on that in later posts due in September and October. Look for them.

Anyhow, I thought I would comment on his post earlier this morning, and bait the "I can't wait to get back into the bully game" GenX. (Amanda Welling) 

But first, a screenshot, and a few words on Rick's post.

You see, Mr. Carufel has been stalked longer, worse, and more times than probably all of us authors put together. He may have suffered the most from these bullies. His frustrations must have been piling up big time. A person can take only so much, so when they finally doc dropped on him, he may have reached his limitations.

Now, on his blog, he clearly indicates that he planned to do a little doc dropping himself. Most notably, on Janis Hinkle, aka, Anna Karenina. And for the better part, he did. He revealed the school where she works at and the principle of the school's email address. 

Looks like the bullies can't take their own medicine. 

But leave it to Beaver, or in this case, GenX, to go author hunting and as expected, to take the side of the bullies in this manner. She did a story on her hate blog today. Check it out. 

Yes, Mr. Carufel had finally had enough. He decided to go after the bullies like they go after him. He finally rolled up his sleeves and dropped into the bully gutter. That was his decision. He threatened to hire some hackers and get personal information on the very people who have criminally stalked and harassed him for years. He probably decided this because he wasn't getting any results the traditional, more lawful way. We all know when it comes to justice, the wheels spin at a snails pace. 

So Mr. Carufel finally reached his breaking point, or so it would appear. Big deal. We all have our breaking points and for Rick to have held out for this long, is testimony to his toughness. I mean, all of us who have been bullied have our own unique and personal attacker. Mine is Jude Henderson. But Rick has had many personal attackers. From Anna Karenina (Janis Hinkle) to Miranda Koryluk, who has stalked and harassed him relentlessly on Twitter. (You will be able to read about that in September in my "Miranda Koryluk: Cyber Criminal" post) 

But after finally giving up on harassing me, GenX of Genxpose blog, took to pretending that her blog was legitimate by posting a swarm of boring posts about things that mattered despite the fact that she herself, and her blog, simply don't matter in the scheme of things. Her blog was started as a hate blog towards myself and STGRB and that is all it ever will be, a hate blog. A bully blog. 

And in her "holier than thou" chair in which she sits so proudly upon, GenX (Amanda Welling) condemns Mr. Carufel for finally going down the road that she herself has traveled. And her bully friends. He sunk to her (and their) level. I guess it was a matter of time. 

But wait! It gets better. Check out this screenshot of me commenting on Rick's blog. 

You see, all I said was: "Go get them Dexter." And how does the queen cunt bully herself, GenX (Amanda Welling) take that as? Well, check it out for yourself.

 Yes, she sees that as me endorsing doc dropping. Well, here is a newsflash GenX, I don't endorse it. And I have already discussed Rick's post with him, and told him I don't endorse doc dropping. Not like you do, and certainly not like your bully friends who doc dropped Rick Carufel. 

My comment was to support him in his decision to deal with your bully friends the way that is right for him. And if Rick wants to do unto those who have done the same thing unto him, and as you done unto others, GenX, then so be it. He is on his own in that regard and he knows it. Do I like it that he has chosen this path? No! Do I condone it? No! Do I endorse it? No! And this is why, unlike you GenX, I don't do it. Nor does STGRB as you claim in your bully article. You have no evidence to prove that STGRB or I ever doc dropped anyone. But do I understand him finally coming to this decision? Yes! I do understand that. 

But wait! Here is GenX making the claim that she doesn't partake in such things like doc dropping people. Check it out. 

Did you read that? Good! And for the record, she never shut her blog down. Nobody doc dropped me. Just saying. She is lying there just like she lies about her not partaking or condoning such activity. Take a look for yourself. This next screenshot is GenX doc dropping Athena Parker and Melissa Douthit. 

Yes, that's GenX doc dropping on her blog, Genxpose. You can also see it on the post "Sad Times At GenX High". 

Even more stupid, she then drags STGRB and Athena Parker into by "assuming" that she and STGRB condones what Rick is doing. (Notice how she loves to bring them up even when they aren't even mentioned?) 

And nowhere on the internet will you find Athena or STGRB supporting Rick's decision to doc drop Janis Hinkle. (aka Anna Karenina) In fact, I talked earlier this morning to Athena about it on Facebook and she has left one of Rick's Facebook groups because of it. She is very disappointed in Rick for that post of his. I will go on record also to say that I am disappointed in him, too. But he is a grown man. And the bullies have put him through more hell than any of us. And like I mentioned earlier, for a lot longer time. But am I going to "abandon" him? No. I am not like that with people. Because where Rick Carufel is concerned, I understand completely why he has decided to take this road. I'm not happy that he chose this road, but again, I understand. A person can only take so much. 

But at least to this point, Rick has just threatened to doc drop Janis Hinkle. As of this posting, he hasn't actually gone through with it. I hope he doesn't go through with it. But it is his choice to make.  Posting someone's address and phone number is a serious thing. People can hurt from it. In more ways than one. Children could be involved, and that is not cool. Just because GenX and her bully friends do it, still isn't a good enough reason for him to do it.

But the GenX stupidity doesn't end there. Check this next shot out in her hate post on her hate blog. 

She says we (Myself and STGRB) keeps telling the truth even though, we can't prove it. Didn't I just prove that she, GenX, doc dropped? But has she yet showed any evidence that STGRB does this? That I do this? .... No! And she never will either. Because she can't. Because the proof isn't there. It would appear that GenX needs to learn the difference from running her hate-whore mouth and backing it up with proof. In fact, I'll also give anyone a thousand dollars if they can show that I practice this behavior or condone it. (And no, GenX, spinning a comment I made isn't proof, you twit. You twat. What ever. Saying to someone to "go get them" isn't proof.) Geesh. You would think at some point she would just go visit the Wizard of Oz and get that damn brain.

And she also needs to learn that I never said in my comment on Rick's blog post that I endorse his decision to doc drop Janis Hinkle. That is just her way of spinning words to fit her own bully agenda. End of story. 

But we all know this already about GenX. My "GenX Says" series shows exactly what kind of a bully she and her friends are. It's not our fault that she (and they) are too damn stupid to understand this. 

But I knew if I left that comment on Rick's blog post, that there was a better than average chance that she was going to jump in on it. And sure as shit, she did. I played that wet-fart bitch once again like my personal violin. Hateful, stupid people like her are easy to predict. And honestly, I kind of missed the bitch. I missed all the many different ways she spins everything, and lies out of her 250 pound ass. I missed how she makes herself the idiot with little to no encouragement from me. I missed her stalking me. I missed her harassing me. I missed the way she opens her mouth against doc dropping and I, to go and post the proof that she does / has practiced that art. I just missed it. 

Oh, I'm sorry, did I offend you again with a weight joke, GenX? I guess it's okay for you to do it to others but not to be done with you, right? Well, get your stoner husband to kiss the boo-boo. He might be getting the munchies right about now anyway. A big healthy pork chop might just hit the spot.

But she responded and .... the missing is gone. Now she's back to her little pimple on the ass self. All is right again in the bully universe. She makes a post. She drags STGRB into it. She makes claims without providing evidence. I respond in defense. I provide evidence. Yep, everything is back to normal. She's an idiot. Nothing has changed. Damn, I just wish she was relevant. It would be more fun if she were. 

As for Rick, he's an adult. He knows how to fight his battles in a manner that is right for him. And if by chance he does actually doc drop, I will lose some major respect for him. But I won't abandon him. He has to do what is right for himself. He doesn't represent me or STGRB. Not like the bullies represent each other. But if doc dropping is Rick's way of dealing with the bullies, then so be it. The point is, I don't do it. It has never been proven that I have done it. Nor shall I ever practice it. Not like the bullies do and most certainly, not like I just proved that GenX (Amanda Welling) from Genxpose blog does. Nope, I just won't do it. I will reveal real names of the bullies if I discover them, as I find it pointless to hide behind fake names like GenX does, and like most of the bullies do. And no, GenX never "defended" me from being doc dropped. That's just her lying out of her anus again as she likes to do. She doesn't have to defend me. My shit is public record already. Under my real name, Carroll Bryant. You don't have to look very hard to find it either. I'm not hiding from anyone. Nor have I anything to hide. 

Sorry GenX, you lose again. But hey, welcome back to bullying! Now, go away again. You're just stinking up the place with your lies. Sure, I missed you .... but not that much. 

I'm Carroll Bryant .... and this is The Looking Glass.

* GenX is still a bully

* A zebra can't change her stripes

* Carroll doesn't support Rick's decision to doc drop Janis Hinkle. But he does undertand it

* Carroll hopes Rick will change his mind about doc dropping that bitch Janis

* GenX is a wet-fart dripping down the leg of humanity

* Carroll missed GenX .... but not that much

* Carroll proved that GenX doc drops (again!) 

* GenX never protected Carroll from being doc dropped

* GenX never shut down her hate blog, Genxpose

* GenX likes to pretend she is relevant

* GenX always has to drag STGRB into everything

* GenX is stupid. No, I mean it, she really is dumb as shit

* GenX still hides behind a fake name

The Attack On Jac Wright

Well, it didn't take the bullies long to make good on their threat. My previous post, "Bullies Need Not Apply" featured a GR book group, "Crime And Mystery Thrillers" that stood up to the bullies. In the post, I showed you a screenshot of .38 Caliber blog where the owner of the hate blog, "Mahala" made a threat at the end of her post and started her countdown.

Well, she and her bully friends finally made it to "blast-off".

They have taken to Amazon (their bully hangout) and started attacking author, Jac Wright, a mod of the group "Mystery And Crime Thrillers" that banned the bullies when they tried to overtake their group with vile language and a nasty attitude. If you go to his Amazon page, you will see this.

Where Anna Karenina, real name Janis Hinkle, the 2nd grade teacher in Daly City, California, not only attacks Jac Wright with comments, but sends a message to Jenni, another mod of the group "Crime And Mystery Thrillers". 

You see, it didn't take them long to attack this once peaceful group who did nothing but post a question in it asking if there were bullies on Goodreads. Well, that question is answered now, isn't it? But wait, there's more. "CathyR" says something very telling in this next shot. 

Did you see it? She said: "And had all her posts deleted after TPTB (The Power That Be) purged her account."

But who is TPTB? .... Kara Erickson? .... Emily Finley? .... Patrick Brown? .... A GR librarian?

Then Jane says this.

No Jane, you are the cockroaches. You and your bully gang. 

If you want to go and see what is going on for yourself, CLICK HERE 

Then they went to his author page on Goodreads. 

See any familiar names?

You can see it all for yourself if you CLICK HERE 

This is what Jac said to me in an email: " My GR Author page is my biggest problem. I have to find a good Librarian who is not part of the bully gang who will connect me to my author page. Yesterday my profile purged out of goodreads.  I have managed to create a new profile because all my books are there.  But they have so far ignored my request to connect to my author page."

Do you see this? They (a Goodreads librarian?) purged his profile out of Goodreads! And for what? Standing up against dirty language and kicking these bullies out of their group when THEY INVADED THE GROUP'S SPACE? 

You see, this has absolutely nothing at all to do with reviews! These bullies invaded the space of a peaceful group on Gooodreads and started throwing their shit around and when they got banned for violating the rules of the group, this is what they do for revenge. 


Do you now see what I and STGRB have been telling you all along? This whole thing has nothing to do with reading, reviews or anyone going into the spaces of these Goodreads bullies, but rather, them invading everybody's spaces, and attacking them when they are met with resistance. They go where they are not wanted and when they don't get their way, they go to their protectors, Kara Erickson and Emily Finley to hand out their revenge. They just can't let things be. They are nasty little bitches and bastards with absolutely no heart, no soul and no human decency whatsoever! 

They have started to now destroy a whole Goodreads book group that was simply minding their own business and doing their own thing. Then came the bullies and now, the destruction. They are worst than Al Qaeda!  (In my book)

Bullies Need Not Apply

Looking for a Goodreads group to join? Sure you are! However, if you are a Goodreads bully, there's one group out there in which bullies need not apply. Of course I am talking about "Mysteries And Crime Thrillers" group.

Coming into 2013, it appeared that the Goodreads bullies were quite the fad. People were really buying into the whole, "We're being bullied by authors for our bad reviews" whine. Fast forward to now. A lot has transpired between January 2013 and August 2013. Things like, oh, I don't know, evidence?

Riding the heels of the Lauren Howard/Pippa attack, the Goodreads bullies have been under tremendous scrutiny. Their once proud gang of thugs and supporters has shrunk to almost nothing these days, with just the hard-core bullies still hanging on to a lie. That they are the ones getting bullied and pushed around. With no evidence to support any of their claims, and so much evidence popping up all over the net, including this blog and STGRB, the once mighty Bully Nation is hanging on for dear life like a raindrop on the edge of old man Johnson's barn's rooftop.

The members of "Mysteries And Crime Thrillers" started a thread asking the question if there was bullies on Goodreads after reading about the attack on Lauren Howard/Pippa. Like so many others, they were shocked to learn of the brutal treatment she received by the Goodreads bullies. Here is some of what they had to say.

A bunch of smart people in that group, wouldn't you say? You see, they get it. These people are the best example of what Goodreads should be about. Like so many others, they can't see the point in rating books that they never read. These people are true readers and lovers of books. They completely understand the difference between real reviews and fake/bully reviews.

So why am I posting about them? Because of what happened recently in their group. You see, once they started discussing this issue, about there being bullies on Goodreads, the Goodreads bullies came storming in to try and "set these people straight". From what I hear, the GR bullies were getting pretty nasty too. While that doesn't surprise any of us, it completely shocked these people. But did these members engage in a war of words with the bullies? .... Hell no! The mods quickly began blocking those butt-wipes immediately!

Yes, you heard correctly, the bullies got SLAMMED!

Kudos to the mods of this group, who clearly protected the integrity of their group, by getting rid of the bad element that is the Goodreads bullies. 

I wish I had screenshots to show you but because the mods acted so swiftly in deleting their nasty comments, and banning them from the group, there wasn't time to take any screenshots. 

And this is how it should be. No group that is dedicated to the written word should have to put up with bully nonsense. And they surely didn't. They know bad seeds when they see them. They saw that the Goodreads bullies came there to infest their group with their hate disease, and they weren't going to stand for it. 

Here are a few more of their comments. 

So, you see everyone, there is good news to report. And it's really nice to know that word is finally getting out and spreading about the Goodreads bullies. The members of "Mysteries And Crime Thrillers" obviously enjoy the love of reading, and reviewing, and sharing books. Not bullying authors! 

I couldn't be any happier about it too.

We need more people like these people on Goodreads. And we need more people to stand up to these bullies like this group did. We also need to get the message out about them too. The more people learn about what is going on, the quicker these bullies will go the way of the dinosaurs. And ultimately, the better Goodreads will be for every book-lover on GR.

Patrick Brown should be taking notes.

So if you want Goodreads to survive and thrive, all you have to do is the right thing. All you have to do is just say no to the bullies. Let them know that they are not welcomed. Because all they do is spread their hate around and turn everything they touch into filth. 

Great job "Mysteries And Crime Thrillers". Looks like you solved this mystery quickly.

 I'm going to post a few more of their comments. We could use a little more sunshine around here.

So when it comes to legitimate book groups on Goodreads, bullies need not apply. They don't want you, and I can't blame them.

Now, if you go to the new BBA group on Amazon Forum Boards, you'll see the bullies crying in their butt-hurt over it. It would seem that 2nd grade teacher (Yeah, I know, right? Kind of scary) Anna Karenina sounds very hurt that she got blocked by them. Check it out.

Yes Karenina, there group says they are public and anyone can join, but their rules are clear that they do not tolerate cussing and mean people in general. Had you not gone in there spewing your hate and cussing up a storm, they wouldn't have blocked you, I'm sure. And by the way, you lied, they didn't block everyone on the STGRB list of badly behaving Goodreader's, just the ones who had nasty bully book shelves. Get your facts straight, idiot. (and you're a 2nd grade teacher? God help us all!)

She ends her boo-hoo rant with: "Kind of reminds me of people who were blacklisted in the late 40's by those who saw communists around every corner."

Hey Karenina, you mean kind of like this? (Just some people blacklisting me and my books)

I feel ya, bitch. LOL 

Then "Doctor Rocky" chimes in with similar sentiments.

And "Book World"

Then Anna Karenina again.

Can we see a little bit hypocrisy here? I think you do. Everything they whine about being done to them, is exactly what they do to authors they deem "badly behaving". What a bunch of fucktard clowns.  

I'm Carroll Bryant .... and this is The Looking Glass.

Things We Learned Today:

* Goodreads bullies are not welcomed in legitimate book groups on GR

* There is hope after all


Since I put this post together, I uncovered new developments from STGRB. One of the hate blogs out there called ".38 Caliber Reviews" started by one of the Goodreads bullies named "Mahala", made a post about the "Mystery And Crime Thrillers" group claiming that they had over 8,800 members. However, this is a lie! 

The truth is, just recently, as reported by STGRB, the group celebrated reaching the 4,000 membership mark. Well short of the 8,800 that Mahala claims. 

The reason Mahala is posting these lies is because she is pissed off that the group blocked an estimated 210 people, mostly the bullies. But the reason this group blocked them was because, of course, when they joined their group, the bullies violated the groups rules from the word go. Their rules are specific, no cussing and no fighting, or trying to cause trouble, etc. 

You see, the bullies are not used to being stood up to in such a way. And when this group started blocking and banning these bullies from their group, what did the butt-hurt Goodreads bullies do? They went crying to their protectors, Kara Erickson and Emily Finley, boohooing for them to intervene. So they did, and they asked the mods of "Mystery And Crime Thrillers" what their deal was. The mods responded with the truth, that the bullies joined the group and started disrupting the group and violating the rules, thus, the end result, now the group has gone semi-private. You have to be recommended / invited now in order to become a member.

Now the bullies are nursing their butt-hurt wounds and crying because they didn't get their way. One of those cries is the post by Mahala on her hate blog. But here is an interesting tidbit, in her butt-hurt whine post, where she claims the group lost over 4,000 members because of their actions of standing up to the bullies, she posts a screen shot. Ironically, and keeping up with the bully M.O. of NOT ever showing evidence to support their claims, the screenshot Mahala posts does not show the members list. Take a look below. 


And yes, her post is called "If You Shut Up Truth" and yet, she lies right from the start about the 4,800 members that "allegedly" left the group due to them standing up to the bullies. Which is the reason why that if you read any of these bullies hate blogs, you just simply can't trust them for the truth. And whenever these bullies can't get their way, or if somebody stands up to them, they go off running to their leaders and protectors on Goodreads to "kiss the boo-boo", and make things all better.

In Mahala's post, she claims that the reason why the mods blocked the bullies was because they simply didn't agree with the groups position about the Lauren Howard / Pippa attack that occurred recently. This is not the case! It was because the bullies violated the rules! Plain and simple.

The mods of "Mystery And Crime Thrillers" only have commonsense rules they expect their members to abide by, and those rules request readers not to use bad language in their book reviews, or list books under dirty or nasty book shelves, etc. In short, they don't want bullies in their group, they want READERS! Period.

The group just simply wants their members to love reading, not attacking authors. Seems reasonable enough, right? So why is Mahala so angry and spewing lies on her hate blog about them? Because this is a GR group where BULLIES NEED NOT APPLY!

And they can't stand it!

So now their response is to attack this group for having high moral standards, and commonsense decency that the bullies severely lack. 

Then, at the end of her post, she more or less threatens the mods and their group. Don't believe me? Then see for yourself.


Did you see the end there? She says: "You are only delaying a possibly painful, maybe humiliating, and definitely messy situation in your probably not too distant future." And then she begins her countdown, saying: "You have buried the truth, but it's growing. 10-9-8 ..."

Makes me wonder what the bullies are planning to do to this group and it's mods/members. But are we surprised at this behavior here? Hell no! We have seen all too well how the bullies exact revenge when people don't agree with them. 

Rest assured I and STGRB will be keeping tabs on this situation. I'm sure the bullies will be working with their bully GR staff friends, Kara Erickson and Emily Finley to try and do something to this group, like maybe, deleting it or something. 

Typical bully behavior!

Legitimate reading groups do not want you bullies infesting their peace harmony with your hate disease. If you don't like it, then don't join. But for Pete's sake, quit your goddamn butt-hurt crying about it. Because when it comes to legitimate reading groups on Goodreads, like "Mystery And Crime Thrillers", bullies need not apply.

Reviews Versus Bullying

Recently, I did a post on author Pete Morin called, "Pete Morin: Moans And Groans". The intent of the post was to showcase the common beef these bullies seem to have, claiming that the authors they attack, they do so because the authors had complained about a bad review.

The truth is, the authors these bullies attack do not complain about bad reviews, but rather, bully reviews. So today I thought I would offer up actual evidence that contradicts the Goodreads bullies claims.

But first, this post was inspired by a readers comments on the Pete Morin post.

Thanks for the inspiration, anon. 

Okay, so let's begin with Pete Morin himself here. Now, Petey claims that he used to be a trial lawyer, so all of this evidence I present here in this post should be obvious to him why he is incorrect with his assumption that bullies are actual readers/reviewers. That there is no such thing as a bully review. And later in this post, I will debunk his theory (and that of Bully Nation) that authors complain about bad reviews and that the bullies (Pete Morin and his friends) do not give bully reviews. In fact, everything that Pete Morin, and his fellow bully pals claim, will be debunked in this post. 

In one of Pete Morin's Goodreads blog posts, he talks about the bad reviews he has received, and pretty much boasts about the fact that he didn't complain about them like all these authors he and his friends attack for allegedly that reason. Not realizing that there is a difference between an actual reader who gives an honest one star rating/bad review of a book they read compared to bully reviews that attack an author on a personal basis or rating/reviewing a book they never even read. In this first screenshot, we will see where Petey talks about a few of his reviews and what was said in those reviews. 

If you noticed, nowhere in those reviews he showcases does any of the reviewers attack him on a personal level. Nowhere do they call him a rapist, or pedophile or whatever. They keep their review of the book strictly targeted at THE BOOK! 

Speaking for myself, I have no problem with those book reviews. I'm pretty sure STGRB, their supporters and my supporters have absolutely no problem with those reviews. But now, let's just take  a peek at one of my reviews, shall we? You know, just to get this ball rolling. 

Do you see the difference? This review that "Nicole" gives is quite different than the ones Pete Morin describes. Now, I have posted in the past more horrible one star reviews of my books than this of "Nicole" and so many of you may be wondering why I chose to showcase this review. Well, to be quite honest here, it is for a couple very good reasons. First, "Nicole" (if that's her real name) obviously either didn't read the book or she is bullying me with lies. And how do I know this? very simple, she states in her bully review that ... "Gushy prose of 12 year old girl falls flat." ..... And guess what? The girl in the book is NOT 12 years old. She starts out at 15 years old and turns 16 in the book. So that right there tells me that "Nicole" either didn't really read the book, or is lying, and bullying me and my book in her review. 

Now for the second reason I used this review instead of one of the more nastier ones. Because "Nicole" isn't really "Nicole". You see, "Nicole" is a Jude Henderson sock puppet account. I know this because on the day that her and Bully Nation attacked me, Nicole suddenly appeared. The account was made the day of my attack. And "Nicole" made some comments at me and said some things that only Jude Henderson would have known at that time. I wish I could have captured those comments, but so it goes, while you may hold out reservations on my claim, I know for myself, and my own records, that "Nicole" IS Jude Henderson.

Jude Henderson knows this too.

Back to the point, that her review is not a "bad" one star review, but rather a "bully" review. And if Pete Morin really was a trial lawyer at one time, he would see evidence like this and know the difference. Unless he was a lawyer who defended child molesters and rapists and murderer's and got them off, sending them back on the streets to hurt more people. Then there is a chance he could have just sucked at being a lawyer. And another possibility could be that he lies about even being a lawyer. One of those options has to be the truth. 

Going through Petey's one star reviews, I also stumbled onto this one. It was made by someone called "Trina". And perhaps the worst of Petey's one star reviews. 

Again, "Trina" did not attack him in the review. She kept it aimed at the book.

Are we seeing the difference here? An honest bad review targets the book and only the book. A bully review targets the author and sometimes, the book and author together. Still, any review that targets the author in the process is a "bully" review, not a "bad" review. And any so called reader who does this and in the process, can't even get the age of one of the main character right, has either not truly read the book or is purposely lying just to bully the author. But I'm not the only one who recognizes this. In the "Nicole" review, I mean, Jude's bully review, there was a comment left by someone named "Squa". At the bottom of this next shot, you will see what she says. Check it out. 

You are correct, "Squa", it is a personal attack. Thanks for being so adroit.

Are we getting the picture here? Well, in the event that we're not, let's take a look at another "bully" review. This one coming from "Don Insixty".

Now, "Don Insixty" leaves a review of my book, "Year Of The Cat". However, "Don Insixty" didn't even read the book! And how do I KNOW this? Well, let's take a look at a portion of his or her novel long review, shall we?

On the surface, one would think that "Don Insixty" actually read the book, however, some key give-aways indicate otherwise. One of those would be, this review covers only the FIRST chapter! Which, by the way, is free to read as a sampler on Kindle / Amazon. In fact, not one thing said in this review covers anything else in the book. But let's slow down here and let's give him or her benefit of the doubt, shall we? because there is another thing of importance that stands out and tells me that "Don Insixty" didn't read the book he or she reviewed. Let's take a look at it and see if you can catch it, okay?

Did you see it? .... No? .... Well allow me to tell you. if you notice, "Don Insixty" mentions, ... "Finally, let's take a look at the cover. Remember, this is a book about a detective." .....

Still didn't catch it? .... Okay, you waited long enough, Here is the dead-giveaway that "Don Insixty" didn't read the book. It wasn't about THE DETECTIVE! .... It was about the mysterious girl he met. The whole concept of the story was about the GIRL! 

You would have to read the ENTIRE book to see this.

Yes, the detective is the leading male character and is told from his perspective, but the storyline and everything involved in it revolves around the mysterious girl. 

So you see, this review by "Don Insixty" is a fake review. It is also a "bully" review because he or she starts it out by saying, "Carroll Bryant is a boy." - A book review that attacks the author. (And to think, calling me a boy when these bullies go aorund claiming I'm a hundred and fifty year old elderly man.) LOL Get your lies straight! Am I a boy or an elderly man? Geesh.

So, at this point, I ask you, can anyone see the difference now between an honest bad review from a reader to a "bully" or "fake" review? 

Good! I knew you people would see it. It doesn't take a third grade education to know the difference. Which leads me to yet another question, did the bullies, including Pete Morin, ever make it past the 3rd grade level? ... Perhaps a question to be answered another day.

Oh, for shits and giggles, here is another "Nicole" rating, I mean, Jude Henderson rating on one of my other books. In fact, you'll see her rating all my books one star, but try finding any other rating on her GR account of other books. Here is a hint: You won't. (But maybe now you will after this post.) LOL  Gotcha, Jude! ..... Dumbass. 

Don't you just love how transparent these bullies are? I know I do. Speaking of which, let's take a quick glimpse at another dumbass. Some brainless twat named "Renee". Trying to take a shot at me for being friends with death metal / satanic metal rocker, Vincent Crowley, of the band "Acheron". (Of whom I opened up my "Pete Morin: Moans And Groans" post.)

"Renee" must be a "Christian". None the less, no, "Renee", I don't like Vincent Crowley .... he's my brother from a different mother! I love the guy! LOL ..... Twat.

But enough about me and my "full of myself" ways. LOL let's take a look at another "bully" by the name of Stephanie Sinclair, and her review of one of author Judyann McCole's books, shall we? You see, Judyann McCole was attacked by these bullies too. You can read about it over at STGRB. They just posted the story yesterday, I do believe. I will be covering it too in October. Take a look. 

The reason I call this a "bully" review, is because Stephanie Sinclair makes the assertion that Judyann used a sock-puppet to get Stephy Bitch to read her book. But notice how she fails to provide any evidence to back up this claim. A typical Goodreads bully thing to do. (Or not to do in this case) But hey, I ask you, does Pete Morin's one star reviews look like this? Of course not, which is probably why he is in cahoots with the Goodreads bullies, in so that his books do not get attacked like this. Or should I say, that HE doesn't get attacked like this. makes you wonder sometimes, doesn't it? Not to worry though, Pete's fan base resembles his bully participation. It's small. Which is a common theme among the bullies. Be it fan base, friends, Twitter followers, the most commonly related theme with these people is that nobody seems to follow them. Most of them have small numbers of friends, followers and fans. 

You think they would get a clue. 

Here is a bully rating / shelving of Judyann's book by some cootch stank named "Jordyn"

Now, I want to switch gears a little. Remember when I, and STGRB introduced you to author Sharon Desruisseaux, and the story behind the bullies attacking her? And if so, you recall why she was attacked? .... Her primary personal attacker was the 666 beast herself, Angela Horn. (Who has since been banned for her "badly behaving" ways) 

Well, one of the reasons for her being attacked was because the bullies, as they always do, cried that she "complains about bad reviews."

Well, let me shoot that Goodreads bully butt-hurt whine down right here and now. In this next shot, we see Sharon get an honest "bad" review. And we also get to see evidence that Sharon DOES NOT complain about it! Take a look. 

Did you see that? ... That is what we call in the real world as EVIDENCE!

"Exibit "A" your honor. Now, will trial lawyer, Pete Morin, like to rebuttal?"

(I like jabbing at him.)

Sharon started her response out with, "Thank you for bringing this to my attention." - Doesn't look like an author complaining about a "bad" review to me. Does it to you? So then why did Sharon get attacked? I mean, if these bullies are saying that it's all about authors complaining over bad reviews, where is their so called evidence to back these claims up? I don't get it. So far, all of the evidence suggests that the bullies, not so surprisingly, are nothing but a bunch of prom night dumpster babies crying and lying about nothing. You would think they would pinch their loaf somewhere else instead of Goodreads. 

And how does Sharon's conversation with her honest reader/reviewer go? Well, take a look.

Well, what do you know, it went quite well, didn't it?

You see bullies, this proves that you people are indeed bullies and not legitimate readers / reviewers. Are you taking notes? .... Well, you should. You might actually learn something. 

But I'm confused here. If Sharon wasn't attacked for complaining about bad reviews as Pete Morin would have you believe, and his bully friends, then why was she attacked? And while we're on the subject, why did bully "Susanna" leave this on Sharon's book?

There is no evidence to support that Sharon was "behaving badly". 

And yet, these bullies keep yapping that it's all about us authors complaining over bad reviews. And to this very date, they have failed to produce one shred of evidence which would indicate anyone has ever complained about a bad review. 

Yet more bully ratings and shelving of her books goes on. Here is a somewhat known bully, "Ade" putting in her brainless opinion. 

You all remember "Ade", right? If not, maybe this next screenshot will bring back your memory.

Talk about cootch stank and twats. She invented it.

So do you see the difference now Pete Morin? The difference between honest "bad" reviews and fake "bully" reviews? Wait! Don't answer numb-nuts, let's have the judge decide. "Your honor?"

"In the matter of "bad" reviews versus "bully" reviews, I find that Carroll Bryant has proved his case beyond a shadow of any doubt, and I hereby find Pete Morin, all the above mentioned perpetrators, and all members of the Goodreads Bully nation, guilty on all charges of stalking, harassing, bullying and posting fake reviews of books and their authors." 

 Case closed!

I'm Carroll Bryant .... and this is The Looking Glass.

Update 08/27/2013

The GR account of "Squa", mentioned in this post, was deleted by Goodreads. Just another bully day on Goodreads.

Also, shortly after this post, "Nicole" (I mean, Jude Henderson) took down the review of my book "Year Of The Cat", although, the "Nicole" profile is still there and so are the one star ratings of my other three books. It would seem that Jude Henderson, as it is with all the bullies, can't stand the truth because it hurts too much. LOL Nice try, Jude, but too late. You got busted! Ha-ha.

Things We Learned Today:

* The Goodreads bullies may or may not have made it past the 3rd grade

* Education is power!

 * "Ade" got another fifteen minutes

* Stephanie Sinclair is a liar

* Jude Henderson is "Nicole"

* Carroll said "rebuttal"

* Carroll likes jabbing at Petey Moron

* "Last Flight Out" is about a 15 year old girl turned 16, not a 12 year old
