Okay, we’re back for part two of GR/Amazon Trolls Show Their True Colors. In Part One, we showed you how the trolls caught wind of a thread in the Mysteries & Crime Thriller group (where the group’s members were talking about the bullying on GR) and then jumped in to attack, thus getting blocked by the mods. The thread is here, but unfortunately, now you can’t see it because the group mods had to privatize the group. Even if the group was public, most of the discussion was removed by GR staff anyway (more on this in our next post). On the plus side, however, we managed to get screenshots of the conversation (as much as we could) before GR stepped in and removed the comments (and they claim they don’t censor).
At this point, GR bully Derrolyn Anderson stepped in and insulted the intelligence of the group members and mods (we weren’t able to get a screenshot of her comment before it was removed and she was blocked by the mods). You will remember Derrolyn from the attack on L. Kirstein that was spearheaded by Wendy Darling. Derrolyn was quoted as saying, “The stoopid is strong with this one.” Her involvement in this attack is what earned her a spot on our Badly Behaving Goodreaders list.
On a side note, as you come to learn more about the GR bullies, you will notice that there are two types of bullies. On the one hand, you have your “lower class”, trashy, vulgar bullies like Angela Horn and CoaxialCreature/AllHailGrmilock. And then on the other, you have your “upper class” bullies with their noses in the air like Wendy and Derrolyn, who pretend that they are good, respectable people when in reality they are just as malicious as the “lower class” miscreants (upon whom they look down).
Anyhow, below you will see the MCT member’s response to Derrolyn, saying, “Thank you for showing yourself.”, (i.e. thank you for showing me that STGRB was correct in listing you as a bully):
Now, we will stop here to address the screenshot below where Treeman says that he suspects the whole affair with Lauren Pippa was a publicity stunt. The fact is that it wasn’t a publicity stunt. If Lauren had done it as a publicity stunt, she wouldn’t change the book’s title, cover, and then publish under a pseudonym, which is what she is doing now. She would publish the book as is.
So, that’s it! Those are all the screenshots we managed to get of the conversation before GR staff stepped in and not only deleted comments, but also deleted the accounts of several members and mods of the Mysteries & Crime Thrillers Book Club.
