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! :^)"
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".
I'm Carroll Bryant .... and this is The Looking Glass.
