Okay, a thread of threads, hopefully, in chronological order.

I've lost track of EXACTLY how things started, but sums things up well enough, I THINK.

I first stumbled across this after I saw a RT'd thread from @BSommerland.
a POC reader was getting harassed for standing up against some ugly racist rheotoric and she and her friends were the only ones dealing with it AND there were some authors piling in.

I asked for info & what a mess.


Some those were my initial thoughts.
I spent probably 4 hrs screenshotting, reading twitter feeds.

A *lot* of bile came from one author who piled on a queer WOC blogger @authorkayn who told a BLACK WOMAN 'please speak proper english'.

KN and co joined in... suggesting she get a GED, etc.

@authorkayn People pointed out her racism. She deflects like she breathes, oh, and she can't be racists because she's not white, and I'm not going to get into that whole mess, but if you're curious.

@authorkayn These are newer writers, for the most part, and I tried to give them the benefit of the doubt in SOME fashion, because clearly they were worked up over negative reviews.


And *established* authors, we know it's not the end of the world.
@authorkayn But one decides to play victim-by-proxy. After 'a few rough days on the internet' a friend had depression.

Which is bullshit. A couple of rough days doesn't set off a chemical imbalance. This was another attempt to guilt people/silence them.


As if the above crap wasn't bad enough.

Doxxing threats started.

@authorkayn They didn't just threatened to *DOXX*.

@authorkayn ANOTHER author was threatened with doxxing, one who had been being denigrated by the group for months, and harassment *there* increased exponentially, freaking the author out.
@authorkayn trolls out of the woodwork start doing shit like this.

See the references to the dog?

That's a veiled threat to @ease_dropper who has been one of the targets in this for a long while.
@authorkayn @ease_dropper that account has been particularly vile, all in support of an author, @SharaGodwinson

See the thread here, where this reader details some of the malice.

Seriously, with support like that... YOU DO NOT NEED ENEMIES.

@authorkayn @ease_dropper @sharagodwinson I've seen screenshots of messages. I've read through a chat they *desperately* want kept offline.

Yes, we all say things in private with friends, but there's a rule of thumb... if you would be embarrassed if it came out in public? Maybe don't put it in writing.
