Walking Away

So everybody thinks that my offer was some kind of Black mail or threat or .... I don't know, so ... to KILL those asinine idea's, I am just going to do this. I am going to get rid of mine first and say to everyone else, you do what the hell you want to do. As far as I am concened, if you want to keep your shit up and make me more famous, then great. If you want to show the world that you are a bitter little whatever, then great, show them, as for me ... I am getting rid of all of mine and you monsters can do whatever you want to.

As for Cupcake and a Latte, thank you for taking your post down. I am now taking my stuff down too. And I apologize to you for allowing everything get so ridiculous. But I still maintain that I have every right to blog about bloggers just like bloggers have every right to blog about authors. What's good for one side is good for the other.

So, in conclusion, do what you want. I don't care. I am walking away from it as of today. You haters keep on hating but just know this, if you think for one moment you are "killing" my career, think again. I just got my numbers for the past week and trust me, you did more good than harm.

Just remember, I am the one who is walking away first. If you continue doing what you are doing, you will have become what you most despise. Sometimes, that happens. Don't let your hate turn you into the very bully you claim me to be. Because if you hold onto that bitterness for too long, you will turn into what you think I am. And let's face it, do you rerally want that to happen?

I have a life to go live. Got to do some traveling before the summer slips away from me. Go out and play and drink in some sunshine. Have a great life, and thanks for the memories.

  1. For the record, I am only apologizing directly to Cupcake and a Latte because she was the only one who was kind enough to take down her post. I will not apologize for defending myself but I will apologize for allowing this mess to get to the point of its insanity. I should have just walked away earlier. I shouldn't have allowed other people's trangressions get to me.

    I think we all need to get some mental help. Me, all of you, every last one of us. LOL

  2. I want to thank Bookish for taking down her post. I appreciate that. Everybody else, if / when you take yours down, feel free to let me know and I will give you a pubic apology too. Even though I know I won't get the same considerations in return.

  3. Jenny just emailed me, saying that she deleted her account earlier so, she is walking away from it too. The rest of you have no more war to fight except that within yourselves.

  4. But you're apologizing to A Cupcake and a Latte for the wrong reasons. It's not because it got out of hand that you should be apologizing but for falsely accusing her with no proof.

    ReplyDelete
  5. Like I was accused of things without any proof? Like being called a stalker, or a pedophile? Both of which were blatant lies. How am I supposed to be a stalker of a girl whom I haven't even communicated with for weeks and weeks? Not since she "used" my friend to get access to "our" blog without "my" knowledge and or consent? You mean that kind of "stalker". Or dating someone 18 years and older means I am a pedophile? (Because I don't date them any younger than that)

    Sure, you people ask for proof from me. Fine, show me proof that I am a pedophile or that I am a stalker and I will be gladly to show you proof of whatever you want. (And don't say that awful email I sent is proof of stalking, because it isn't) That was part of a conversation she and I was having that more or less, escalated into an "E-mail" argument. And trust me, the email prior to that in which she sent me was just as awful. So why not ask her to show that one? Oh, that's right, because then my email would be more understandable and you guys are just siding with your friend regardless of the truth. And I can understand that. But notice my friends didn't join in. That's because unlike many, I don't go out and recruit them to fight my battles.

    Thanks for the comment, 'Just'. You brought up a very good issue.

  6. Carroll... I don't know about these comments saying you're a pedophile, but I have seen plenty of "proof" of other things circling the web. The worst of which is that you lied about your age and your profile picture was taken from a male model named Michael. I have no idea if you're a pedophile or a stalker because I don't know you, but there are links pointing to a page that claims you're 42 and some people found the male model you used as your picture.

    That's besides the point... you nicely skirted the issue. Instead of just saying that A Cupcake and a Latte was not part of it, just ignored the request. That is not fair to her. A Cupcake and a Latte (Wendy) was not in ANY of the discussions about you, she never commented on any of the posts on Goodreads and she never commented on this blog except once when she was defending herself because she DIDN'T EVEN KNOW WHO YOU WERE.

    At this point, it's you who's being unfair.

    1. I think everyone is being unfair. Myself included. You are right about one thing though, in hindsight, I should have gathered my evidence up and posted it with the blog.

      As for 'Latte', I mentioned in a comment during all hoopla that I was going to go back and review the emails and check to see that I didn't make a mistake where she was concerned. I haven't had time to do so yet, but will tonight. If I find that I made a mistake, I will gladly apologize for that.

  7. If you weren't stalking anyone, then why did Good Reads manager, Patrick Brown ban you? I saw so many people who responded to your blog and posting foul language left and right. Almost all of those people violated the Good Reads TOS in their comments to you. If he were a fair man, he would have banned just about all of them. I think he's just a frustrated little prick. Then again, if my life consisted of nothing more than on-line babysitting for a lousy ten dollars an hour, I would be a bit frustrated myself. You have more supporters than you think, Mr. Bryant. You really do. I, and several of my friends, have removed our support for many of those bloggers who bullied you. God bless.

    1. Maybe he was still bitter over my Goodreads post on my blog or something and was just looking for anything to ban me for. Who knows? I can say that being fair isn't one of his strongest qualities because he never once asked me for my side of it.

      You're right about the hundreds and hundreds of TOS violations that occured on that post. Many with repeated violations. Maybe those people were his friends. Just because somebody posts something that you don't like doesn't mean you should go out and get him banned. And if my being banned was the result of any stalking or bullying then I sure would like to know how that could be when I haven't even communicated with the girl for weeks. Like I stated earlier the last time she and I spoke, it was over the fact that she made freinds with my friend and asked her to not say anything to me then went on to weasel her way onto our blog as an admin under the guise of creating a new design or whatever, without consulting with me first.

      I just found that a bit suspicious is all. Outside of that, it had been 8 weeks since we spoke.

  8. Actually, you were banned because someone sent the community manager (Patrick) a direct email with a screen shot of you telling another user to come to your house so you could fight him (presumably because you misinterpreted something he said to you). "Jennifer" was deleted for threatening to slap other users. That was the TOS violation that got you banned- incitation to violence. End of story. Period. That is all. And if you actually read the TOS, "foul language" isn't a violation at all, with the exception of racism or pro-Nazi statements.

    1. Taken from the Goodreads TOS: (Please note the "emotional distress" ... I didn't suffer emotional distress by the overwhelming amount of "haters" that swarmed me from Friday, July 20th, 2012 and lasted to July 22nd, 2012? Mr Brown needs glasses and a memory.)

    2. Then, the bullies violated most of those rules...

  9. Actually, he didn't tell me that it was a copy of a an email that he posted, at the time, I thought he was telling that I should just go and kill myself. Once I discovered that he wasn't saying it to me, I spologized to him. Like a man. But excuse me if I refuse to get into a keyboard fight. All i was telling him, when I thought he was saying that to me was, if you want me to die, why not come to me and try anmd do it himself because I took his words as a direct threat to me. Notice, however, that I didn't screen-shoot it and take it to the principle because. "Johnny is being mean to me." Whaaa, whaaa.

    And if mass bullying isn't a violation of the TOS, maybe it should be. Whaaa, whaaa. But I didn't threaten him, I simply told him that if he wanted me dead than he could come to me and do it himself. Like a Man. Once I discovered he wasn't telling me that but it was an excerpt from an email, I apologized. Lke a man! Too bad he and Patrick couldn't have been men about it.

    2. Oh, hi Jewel. I don't know. I got banned from Goodreads, and people hate me now because they are not really sure how old I am or what I really look like. LOL I know, right?

      But not to worry, I am still here. I am having the time of my life and waiting for the police to come and arrest me. LOL Just kidding, the police don't care about a bum like me. Haha But I am getting all kinds of tabloid publicity. I feel like a true celebrity now. Like one of the Doxie Chicks or something.

      I wouldn't be a bit surprised if all these mean people are going out and buying my E-book on their E-reader and burning it. LOL Only to realize afterwards, "Hey, I just burned my Kindle." Haha

      How have you been?

    3. Haha - I said Doxie Chicks. I mean, Dixie Chicks. LOL

  10. Just when I apologized to Bookish for taking her posts down about me, she goes out and posts a new one. So I retract my apology. (Oh, and here is proof) See the kind of adolescents I have to put up with? LOL Not to mention, liars. And Bookish, you are a liar and a bully. Get over it already children, geesh. In second thought, keep doing it, the book sales are awesome and I have youguys to thank.

    By the way, you guys do realise that only your circle of people are the only ones who care about it, right? I mean, people don;t really care about my age or what I look like. LOL They really don't. All of your petty little antics is just making you guys look exactly like bullies.

    Here is the link to her blog. She is promoting me so I will promote her and her childish behavior. Take a look everyone, he's 35. No, he is 36. No, he is 42. No, he is 48. LOL Who cares? Hahahaha (You may have to scroll down the page)

    The strange case of Carroll Bryant) LOL That's me everyone! :D

  11. Okay, why the heck do they doubt your age and say you're 42? o_O
    And who's that Michael anyway? Bah...
    I'm really lost here...
    I feel like I'm missing so much these days... o_O

    1. Pick a number. 35, 36, 42, 48
      Michael? I do not know him.
      Me too
      I feel like I am missing too little. LOL

    2. Don't know, someone said in a comment or somewhere that your picture was from a certain model named Michael. O_o
      Now, that's starting to get ridiculous. First they say Jennifer 's pictures were of a model from don't know where in the world. Then say the same about you. Kinda repetitive if they think they're that good at making things up. My bulldog would do much better than them.

      Delete
    3. Jennifer was a child model. That's how she paid for her college. Unfortunately, the company she modeled for closed down when she was 17. I'm sure her pictures from those days found their way to somewhere. The site they were discovered on was from Poland, I think. Can't recall off hand. But there was only about a dozen or less on that site.

      Interestingly enough, they had no answer for the recent pics she had posted on Goodreads. Like th eone when she was in the car with her pink hat on. Or the one I took of her sitting her wicker chair watching TV.

      I even posted a video of her and another model right here on my blog for about a week last month where clearly, you could hear her talk with her Southern Mississippi accent. But all of that still wasn't "proof" for them. The point being, you could show them a bunny and they would still insist that it was a lion.

      Moral of the story? It's like Ira says in the comment section on her post, (The Strange Case Of Carroll Bryant), "One way or the other, none of you are happy."

      Keeping in mind that these people, who have absolutely never met her or talked to her before until all of this broke out, keep on trying to tell her what is best for her. And we're talking complete strangers. This is how warped their minds are. They were not out to just "stop" a post from an author about bad bloggers, they were out to destroy me for writing a blog that made their "hobby" look bad. But it was okay for when a blogger named "Lucy" wrote about an author that supposedly stalked her, and yet she never provided any proof of it.

      I always find it funny how it's okay for them to "speak their mind" and give "their opinion" and be protected by free speech laws, and yet, I wasn't given the same consideration or rights.

      But that's how bullies operate.

      I still do not know who Michael is.

      I think that bulldog is adorable. LOL

    4. Yeah i know about Jennifer's modeling when younger and that some of those pics were on that site. And I find it very weird and repetitive that they said that your picture is of an unknown model too. No better imagination?
      I don't know all the details and I don't know the truth since I'm neither you or Jenny or (thanks God! ) Jude. But still, for what i know you've always been nice to me and whoever I know and are our mutual friends. You've never harassed me or others to read and review your books. You've never stalked me or people i know. I don't see how they could say (or have any evidence) that you're a pedophile.
      And that Patrick Whatever that banned you from GR without interviewing you and actually find out the truth is just an idiot.

    5. And yes, my bulldog is adorable :D will upload some new vids on YouTube as soon as I can connect from my computer.
