MOTHER. FUCKING. GAAAAAAAAAH!!!!

Look, here's the thing. I don't want to be known as an "angry" blogger. But everyone keeps pissing me off.

Like these jack-offs at Stop The GR Bullies. Fuck these guys, okay? First of all, I'm going to go on record and say that there is at least one author involved here. I don't know this for a fact, but I know it with my heart, soul, and guts, because only authors can carry a mean, vindictive streak like this out to its inevitable conclusion. Because we're all barely functioning vis-a-vis mental health. And if there isn't an author directly writing these posts? There's an author mobilizing this with a bunch of "poor me, reviewers are so mean" whinging.

I can't even coordinate my thoughts, that's how pissed off I am.

Let's start here: in one post on "Stop The GR Bullies," the fuckwads actually post a GoodReads user's name, the city she lives in, and where she works? What is the point of that? So the next time she steps out of line on GoodReads, someone can try and get her fired. Seriously? This is what constitutes stopping a bully?

In another post, a GoodReads reviewer is accused of being a problem drinker and neglectful mom. Yeah, sure, that's going to solve the problem of "bullying," and mocking the fact that she's writing a novel is TOTALLY going to mean that she gives nicer reviews to YOUR books on GoodReads.

Grow up, book community. You're accusing people of child abuse and trying to get them fired OVER BOOKS. FUCKING BOOKS. THEY ARE MADE UP STORIES ON PAPER OR DIGITAL MEDIA. IF YOU LIKE SOMETHING AND SOMEONE ELSE DOESN'T? FUCKING DEAL WITH IT.
