The absolute last thing I’ve felt like doing over the past couple of weeks is writing reviews. Recently, the online romance community has been in turmoil over an attempt by some anonymous people to stop GoodReads bullies (for more information just Google stop the GR bullies or check out this Dear Author post - http://dearauthor.com/features/letters-of-opinion/something-is-very-wrong-with-us-and-its-not-bad-reviews/ ). I tried to stay as far away from the entire situation as I could, but eventually got sucked into reading some of the posts/comments/sites/etc on the issue. Unfortunately, the whole thing turned my stomach. The behavior involved by many is so disheartening and frightening (the revealing of personal information online especially). People have an insane need to to think they know best and to believe that they have the right to tell others how to behave "properly."
I’m not a fan of conflict and will actively do almost anything I can to avoid it. Yes, this means that I often allow people who are in the wrong to get away with what they are doing. After all, I have to worry more about my mental sanity than their need to be right. But, I still worry and obsess (and get stressed) over the situation. So, I wasn’t terribly surprised when the nastiness and the vitriol directed at reviewers sucked away my will to review or to be online.
