As many of you are aware, this book the bullies collaborated on mentioned several authors and painted them in a negative light, being somewhat accusatory and demeaning, and was riddled with inconsistencies if not, outright lies. After a barrage of complaints regarding its questionable content, it was finally removed.
This is the kind of action we all need to take when the situation calls for it. The bullies continue to attack many people, most notably, authors. They have gotten away with it for so long on Goodreads and have now taken their hate to "Bullylikes", that perhaps they thought they could write a hate book to boot, but the plan they put together was thwarted by the active participation of those who stand against internet cyber bullying, and for that, many thanks goes out to all of you involved, most notably, author Rick Carufel who spearheaded this campaign.
I am also very impressed with Lulu's decisive response once they realized what the bullies had done. I appreciate them taking the time to listen to those who responded, and hope they actually read the book for themselves to get a better understanding of what these bullies did, and continue to try and do to indie authors, which is of course, to ruin their reputations for the sole purpose of ruining their book sales and careers.
Strike one up for the good guys!
