I thought the purpose of STGRB was to fight against the Goodreads / Amazon bullies and trolls? If so, how does attacking Ruck Carufel and myself fighting the bullies and trolls? We are not the ones on Goodreads and Amazon Forum Boards carpet bombing, writing fake and attack reviews. We are not members of the Bully Nation. So why are they seemingly focused on me and Rick?
This recent screenshot has gotten me concerned.
It is a question you will need to ask yourself and perhaps Athena Parker.
This is also the kind of thing that shouldn't be going on. Especially on STGRB. Could it be that STGRB is now picking and choosing for themselves who the bullies and trolls are? Just because they don't like me anymore, or Rick Carufel?
Even to this day, I would not allow anyone to come on here and make such comments against STGRB despite mine and Athena's "falling out". (Unless they were to do so using their online identity.) Even then, there is a limit of what I would allow.
I think we all should turn to Rick Carufel and his plea of assistance that he left on his Facebook page, and try and do something to get STGRB to slow their roll, and refocus on the task at hand where the bullies and trolls are concerned. You know, the ones who are actually attacking authors.
So in this next screenshot, I encourage you all to help support Rick Carufel stand up against this new apparent practice by STGRB and report them to their web host. Thanks.
Why also, have they (STGRB) all of a sudden decided to jump on the Anne Rice bandwagon? Everyone knows that it was Mr. Carufel who first brought our attention to what Ms. Rice was doing on her Amazon thread(s). I also wrote a post regarding her involvement as well. Since then, STGRB has been riding Ms. Rice's coattails on the matter. Does this mean that they are now going to attempt to take credit for Anne Rice and her involvement to standing up to the bullies and trolls? And if so, will they crucify her too if they (STGRB / Athena Parker) and she (Anne Rice) have some kind of falling out in the future?
I guess we need only to stay tuned to find out.
Meanwhile, wouldn't it be nice if STGRB could get back into the game of fighting bullies and trolls instead spending their time attacking victims of the bullies and trolls like Rick and I? I don't know about you, but I sure would like to see that. Then again, STGRB were the ones who declared some kind of victory over the bullies and trolls back around October / November of 2013, when obviously, there was no victory. The problem is still there over on Goodreads and has gotten worse on Booklikes and Leafmarks, or so, that's the information I have been receiving. It's obviously still happening on Amazon Forum Boards, otherwise, why would Anne Rice be getting involved, correct?
I guess we could use that as food for thought.
Come on STGRB, Athena, get it together! You're losing it.
