We were going to move on to the post we published on Ridley on July 6, but we have some urgent news. On our new posts, we received these comments:
One from Anon:
And then Gen posts Athena’s and Melissa’s addresses and phone numbers and somehow that’s just fine. Doesn’t put these two women in danger at all, does it?
It is telling that Gen deleted the comment verifying that Athena and Melissa were neighbors. I guess she couldn’t handle information that didn’t fit her theory. I wish I had taken a screenshot of the comment to show you guys.
And one from Observer:
You all remember that loser named GenX you banned from your site a while back? Kudos to you because she just published a douchebag post revealing Melissa Douthit’s private information.
It was bad enough when Lucy Low Life threatened to do it. This wanker actually did. No wonder you banned her. The hypocrisy of these people never ceases to amaze me. Aren’t they the ones who were complaining about putting “women in danger”!?!?
Does Melissa know about this? Maybe someone should tell her. I mean, the information this asshole posted is nothing we haven’t seen except for the fact that she actually lists Melissa’s address and phone number. Melissa should know. Like the other bullies, Gen drew links between Melissa and Athena, but – get this – someone tried to give her information verifying that Melissa and Athena used to be neighbors in California and Gen removed the poster’s comment! I just thought you should know.
Well, if Melissa didn’t know about this, she does now. She just contacted us to let us know that she received a threatening phone call and unlike Lucy’s phantom stalker phone call, this one was actually real. We got her permission to post about this on our blog and are doing everything we can to help her. We won’t repeat what the person said to her but rest assured, they didn’t call to inquire about her well being. The caller’s number had a 503 area code. For those that don’t know, that’s Portland, Oregon. We’re not at liberty to publish the number here and we don’t want people calling this person. I think the caller has enough to worry about anyway because Melissa is taking the number along with links and screenshots of Gen’s blog to the police. All we can say is that this is really serious and it’s a good thing she reported Lucy and Foz to the police back in August. Now she can refer to the police report that was filed to show them that these people are indeed stalking her.
So today, we decided to postpone Ridley’s profile and post More Bully Reviews. This is a post we published on August 27, 2012. We’re doing this to show our new readers the history of Lucy and Foz and the threats they laid against this author.
I know Athena said that the next post would a fun one on writing reviews, but we’ll get to that next. We had to do this one first because we have some very interesting things to show you. Very interesting, indeed.
First, our team has been flagging these reviews brought to our attention by Stop Them, a recent site visitor:
But, there’s a couple we’d like to showcase.
Now, we’ve been told the bullies at Cuddleboogery have never violated GR’s reviewer guidelines. Ahem, cough, cough:
And here we have one from Ridley. We can always count on good ol’ Ridley:
And why is she attacking the author? Because of this:
And here’s the lovely Lucy, as sweet and wonderful as always:
“Fuck her and her career.” Nice!
Speaking of Lucy, we have something very interesting to show you, but before we do, we want to explain something first. We want to explain the difference between public information and what the government calls PII or personal identifiable information (you can ask any government official about this – they take it very seriously.) Now, public information is what you find on public social networking sites like Twitter, GR, Facebook, Yelp, etc. PII, on the other hand, is what identity thieves look for when they want to empty your bank account or set up a credit account in your name and run off to the Bahamas. PII includes but is not limited to someone’s physical address, phone number, social security number, date of birth, credit card and bank numbers, etc. Now, taking public information and publishing it on a blog is not illegal. Digging up someone’s PII and publishing it (or threatening to publish it) with malicious intent is. Threatening someone with their PII is a BIG no-no.
Okay, so everybody got that? Good.
Now, with that said, we want to show you this message we received on our site from Lucy on Thursday. It is addressed to Melissa. If you have any popcorn or wine & cheese or whatever in your hand, we suggest you put it down, because this will shock you:
You see that? Public Property Records! Background check sites! And this is from the woman who claimed that she received threatening phone calls but never actually contacted the police about it and has no one to corroborate her story.
You see the kind of person she is? You see why we don’t trust or believe her?
But wait! There’s more! This is not the only person to send us a threatening message like this addressed to Melissa. We received this from Foz Meadows via our Contact Us page last month:
To which Athena responded:
And then, Foz wrote back:
We cut if off right here because Foz actually lists Melissa’s PII in the email. Then, the email ends with:
Then, Athena said:
Okay, let’s stop here for a second and take a slow, calm breath. This is Foz Meadows. A woman who BERATED us on HuffPo for posting public information on our blog – information published on public social networking sites by the bullies themselves. We never threatened anyone and we never lied about what we did. And we have NEVER published addresses, phone numbers, dates of birth, etc, on our blog. Never. You will not find a single screenshot of us doing that because it NEVER happened. We never even looked that stuff up. As far as we’re concerned, that’s off limits. You don’t even touch that stuff. But these women, not only did they look it up, they threatened her with it. You see how vicious these people are?
Lucy, Foz, you’re busted.
We took screenshots of these messages and have sent them to Melissa. She is taking them to the police, not to press charges, but simply to alert them in case something does happen, the police will know to respond to Melissa’s 911 call immediately. Melissa has also alerted her neighbors, who are keeping on eye on her house for suspicious activity. So she is very protected right now. Also, if something were to happen to Melissa, leaving her incapacitated, we know exactly who to contact in the Utah police department and we know exactly where to point them.
Now, as to the question: did Athena use Melissa’s former address when she started this website? No. She used her own address – same street, different house number. Was Melissa Athena’s neighbor a few years ago? Yes. Do they know each other? Yes. Is Melissa involved in our website? No. She has never been involved in it. She has stayed out of the whole thing, or at least, she’s tried. We’ve tried to keep her out of it, too, but the bullies just won’t have it. They keep dragging her back into this. Why? Because they must have a ‘witch’ to hang for what they consider our crimes against them, that is, exposing their behavior and posting our opinions of it on our blog, which is not a crime at all.
Lucy, Foz, you should never have left those messages on our site. Bad move, girls. REALLY bad move.
