If you’ve been visiting this site for a little while, you’ll know that Stop the GR Bullies populates their posts with lies and half-truths. If you’re an accused “bully” you’ll know how it feels to be the victim of these lies. My concern, and one of the reasons I started this site, was that people who are new to Goodreads or book blogging would come across STGRB and think they were telling the truth. Which is why I’m really glad that some wonderful person has established a site that tells the truth about Stop the GR Bullies once and for all. It’s called Readers Have Rights, and the tagline is “What Stop the GR Bullies is really all about”. Love it!
When STGRB first appeared, I was outraged.
I was shocked that someone could be so nasty, vicious and vile. Over book reviews.
The personal attacks made me feel sick.
People suffered real life consequences.
Several left Goodreads and shut down their book blogs because it just wasn’t a fun place to be any more.
Meanwhile, STGRB continued to post half-lies and outright lies.
I got mad again.
I started this blog to try and balance STGRB’s lies with some truth.
STGRB wrote more lies.
They became focused on conspiracy theories.
It was actually kind of funny.
They got stupider. And stupider.
It had always been difficult to follow their faulty logic and long, rambling posts, which were poorly written and showcased on an atrociously-designed site. But somehow, they got worse. They made less and less sense.
And they were just plain boring.
Post after post was so boring I couldn’t even read through them, let alone critique them.
I realised that anyone not suffering from Speshul Snowflake Syndrome knows that STGRB are liars and hypocrites, driven by the revenge fantasy of one very petty, sick woman.
My care factor dropped to zero. I’m not even mad about STGRB any more. Their stupidity isn’t even amusing. It’s just boring.
So I probably won’t be updating this blog any more. I might, if I feel like I have something to say, but at the moment there’s not a lot.
Stay cool, book community.
Let’s go back to reading and talking about books and forgetting that Melissa Douthit and her cronies exist, ‘kay?
