The general consensus among the people who have visciously attacked me is that this is all about getting back at a girl. Keeping in mind, of course, that my orignal list did not include her blog. I had already done a blog about her ethics as a blogger so re-hashing it would have been redundant. However, when she sent her gang of bullies after me, I changed my mind.
Then they say that I am disgruntled over a bad review. Here is the kicker, I haven't had a bad review of my books for over a year. The only bad review I had was the first one, which brought to light about a mistake that I made and I thanked the reviewer for it and as a reward, sent her a copy of my second book.
So, those two theories are shot.
That all aside, my attackers are many. Let's just say about a hundred perhaps. Maybe more. And even after they got what they wanted, me banned from Goodreads, they continue to talk about me on their blogs, websites and the entire internet period. So much so that I now have two websites supporting me, STGR and Goodreads Follies. I have been contacted today by two other websites who want to pick up this story and I will be sending them all the information they need, including the true story of my relationship with the girl who started this all. That will be presented by itself. So I doubt this thing will go away soon. The truth is, I don't want it to go away. Because like one person said in one of my comments, I am the flavor of the week, people will forget about me when they move on to their next victim. My hope is, that there will be no more victims of these internet terrorists. So I am keeping this alive for that purpose. That and the fact that they have now forced a 17 year old girl to close down her blog because they got bored with me and needed someone else to go and harass.
The funny thing is, to show how ignorant these terrorists are, they think she and I are either the same person or that there is some romantic connection. I suppose in their world, the concept of friendship and people helping people doesn't resonate in their reasoning. They just want to take every little thing, every little word and twist it around until they can make something from it that they want it to be. Then they start talking about where this 17 year old lives. Really?
Then they say she and I have known each other for years. The truth is, one of my mods in my group on Goodreads suggested she would be a pretty good mod and that is how she and I started actually talking and becoming friends. But you can't reason with ignorant internet terrorists. Not a single one of them knows me or her. I have never spoken to any of them at anytime that I can recall. Nor has Ira. yet, they seem to know an awful lot of details about my relationship with JH after she turned 18. All the details except for .... well, I am not telling here, you will have to just read it when the story comes out.
Then I am told I am doing this for attention. Okay, let's just think about that for a moment. If I knew somebody was posting a blog about something and I was "personally offended" like these terrorists are because they are bloggers too, and I thought for a moment that the person writing the blog was seeking attention, then why would you give that person the attention they seek? Why play into it? I think the best course of action would be to ignore that person and NOT give them that attention.
Bu there's the thing, all of those reasons above are not any of their reasons. Just their excuses that enables them to terrorize people at will. And for them to know that they have the support and personal backing of Patrick Brown, the manager of Goodreads, to cover for them. But like another comment mentioned, maybe he is just frustrated that his life consists of internet baby-sitting for ten dollars an hour. I don't know. Certainly something to ponder.
Then they also have to talk about my engagments like they know what the hell they are talking about. And they don't. And then they start saying that just because I am bi-polar, that I am some kind of mental patient. That kind of talk just shows their ignorance and how uncompassionate they are towards people who may be suffering from mental illness. But that's bullies for you. They attack at all angles. They don't care about any of that stuff, they just won't be staisfied until they destroy someone. That's their job in life. That is their only purpose. To be internet terrorists. This coming from someone who served in the military. Yes, I am a veteran. My ex manager is retired military. And this is what I get for risking my life for my country? Eh, whatever. I can deal. Of course now I just gave them something more to slosh around. They will attack me about it and say I am lying about being in the military. But if they really have been reading all of my old posts in Goodreads, they will see that part of my life is very well documented and spoken about. But they will twist it around to fit their world. That's bullies for you. That's what internet terrorists do.
Another documented illness or addiction is alcahol. They take pot-shots at me and my drinking. They claim that I am trying to get people to feel sorry for me because I have a drinking problem. Well here is the newsflash, I don't have a drinking problem. I haven't had a drink in almost two months. I do sometimes go on binges, but those last for about a week or two and then I am good. But these people whom I have never spoken to before seem to know me better than I know myself or my friends know me. The fact that they do not know me clearly shows the ignorance of these internet terrorists as they continue to talk all over the net about a person they do not know, a relationship they know nothing about, and a situation where knowledge thereof eludes them.
The only reason they are attacking me is because this is their character. This is their job in life. This is their purpose. This is who they are. Internet Terrorists. They do it because they can, and Patrick Brown gives them that opportunity. They do it because it gets them off in their boring lives. And why are their lives so boring? I don't know. I really can't say. I can only speculate and with that I would guess, maybe it has something to do with the decay of daytime drama TV. Maybe they are upset that "Days Of Our Lives" got cancelled or something. I honstly can't say. But it wouldn't be too difficult to make the connection.
This next shot is of a friend of mine. She was one of my first friends when I got on Goodreads. We had a religious debate of sorts and by the end of it, we were friends. Here, she brings up a good point.
Of course, when someone of logic and reason enters the picture, these terorrists have to sound like they know me more than someone who actually knows me. I find this amusing. But this is how these people are. They have somehow convinced themselves that they know me more than the people whom I have been associating with for over a year. It fascinates me how these lunatics operate inside their warped mind.
So here is a person telling a friend of mine to either stop reading my posts of lies or shut up. None of these people talking bad about me even know me. They never did and they never will. They only know what their friends know and their friend knows only what they think they do. However, the girl who was told this has been a friend of mine for over a year. See the ignorance here?
Here is another example of someone who has never messaged with me, tells a friend of mine of over a year that she knows me better than my friend. This is proof of ignorance in action. The ignorant one is Kaia.
Like I also said earlier, coming after me wasn't enough. Now they start to spread lies about Ira. Here, an ignorant person lies about what Ira said. Ira never said that she knew me for years. Because we haven't even known each other for a year yet. More like about 10 months. And only through my group as she was a mod of it is why we even communicate with each other. She is a wonderful young lady with a passion for poetry who also helps me on my blog because I knew nothing about it going in. She has been a big help to me and oh, I got the first invite to her wedding when she gets married. She's a sweet kid whom these terrorists are trying to manipulate into hating me like they do.
It all led to one thing for poor Ira. She didn't want anything to do with this. It was for her that I took down my list post and others because she thought by doing so, they would leave me alone. But she saw it didn't. She posted a "rant" and these people wanted to make it into something else. They have in essence caused Ira to suspend her blog that she loves so much because these people won't leave her alone, me alone, they just won't stop it. And I only post what they are posting. Like another good comment on one of my posts said, if they stop talking about it, I wouldn't have anything to post. But now I see, because they admitted that they would find someone else after I am done being the flavor of the week, and I don't want anyone else to have to go through this ordeal because for others, this could shake them or break them where as I actually get a big kick out of their ignorance and perhaps stupidity, shall continue to stand and defend and try and keep their attention on me because after all, I am the drama queen. LOL Anyhow, this is what these internet terrorists did to a 17 year old girl and her blogging dreams because they simply can't let her be.
Ira went so far as to reach out to JH to appear on her and my blog as a guest author to ask her friends and these bully internet terrorists to just back down and leave it alone. To basically try and restore order. But JH refused. She said no. So it is obvious to me, this is what she wanted right from the start. And all of Ira's efforts and my efforts to try and calm things down have gone in vain. Our attempts to have the leader of this terrorist group come on and make a plea of peace, has failed. Soon, there will be four websites covering this debacle. I will try to incorporate as many more as I can. And any website who comes to me wanting the story, I shall accomodate. Hey, my book sales have tripled since this whole thing began. I'd be a fool now to want it to go away. LOL
