Well, unfortunately, the attack on Nathan Bransford continues. After he shut down the comments on his blog post, the bullies started going after him on Twitter. We managed to get some screenshots of a few of our Biggest Offenders who berated him for stating his opinion on his own blog. We think you will find their tweets to be very telling. We’ll start first with Jane-the-master-bully-Litte first, showing you her angry tweets scolding Nathan as if he’s a little boy. Notice her condescending tone:
What kind of “disturbing repercussions” are those, Jane? You mean you and your band of merry bullies would actually have to start acting like decent human beings? Omg! Heaven forbid! How horrible! You might actually have to start being nice to people. That’s so… so… disturbing!!!
This coming from the queen bully herself. Oh, the irony!
We noticed that two of the reviews Nathan cited were written by bullies on our BBG list, Blythe Harris and Stephanie Sinclair. Don’t you love how Jane describes these two bullies as “passionate readers”? Don’t forget that it was Blythe who’s an eighth grade teacher and who together with Adam Archer Pring, cursed out a 14 year-old girl on GR, telling her f*** off. And it was Stephanie Sinclair who humiliated another GR reviewer and then blamed an author, claiming the author had made a sock. If you want to see the author’s real story about how she was bullied by Stephanie, click here.
Anyhow, the point is, these women ARE bullies! They are NOT passionate readers.
Then, another bully jumps in and calls Nathan “a privileged male telling a mostly female community to shut up and be nice girls.”
Of course, when we (meaning STGRB) criticize their bullying behavior, we are suddenly the hateful bullies who “stalk them and put them in danger”, which is bullshit.
Here’s the thing. When these bullies are put on the spot, they will use any ad hominem attack they can find against whoever is telling them that their behavior is out of line. And that’s the bottom line. That’s what it boils down to.
Refreshingly, someone else who was like-minded jumped in and agreed:
And just when Nathan thought it was over, another attack came from Cuddlebuggery. By reading the tweets, you can tell that at that point, Nathan was getting frustrated:
And that’s it, folks! Those are the screenshots we took.
So… our message to Jane, Kat, Steph & co.:
Whoever you think you are, girls, you have NO RIGHT to berate Nathan for stating his OPINION on his OWN BLOG. Nathan is a good guy and he made a valid point. And he has a right to state his opinion. Okay? So it’s time for all of you girls to shut your gaping holes and leave him alone! No one wants to listen to your whiny bullshit anymore. Unlike Nathan, who is so patient and nice, we WILL tell you to shut the hell up, because it’s about time someone did.
Our message to Nathan:
Now, we hope you can appreciate why we placed these people on our Biggest Offenders list. It’s because they think that they own the literary world and that they can dictate the “rules” (their rules) to everyone else. They think that everyone MUST follow them or else. And that else is that the people who don’t follow their rules will be stalked and bullied and their books shred to pieces until they give in and cry uncle. This is why we call them bullies. They have no right to tell you, Nathan, what you can and can’t write on your own blog. And they have no right to tell you that your opinion is wrong. If they bother you again on Twitter, just block and report them. That’s all you have to do. Works like a charm.
One last thought before we go. Remember what we said about Mike Mullin being a bully kiss-up? Well, this ought to make you vomit:
Sorry if that made you sick. We just wanted to show you the lengths people like him and Stacia Kane will go to just so they can sell books. They debase themselves. They have absolutely no dignity. Sorry, but we have ZERO respect for that.
In the next few days, we will be making a HUGE announcement about GR and why it is they keep protecting the bullies.
Until then, have a great, bully-free day!
