STGRB: Closed for business? (Updated)

According to the latest post from Melissa Douthit (aka Athena Parker or Johnny Be Good) the site is officially closed, although it will remain online “for comment”.

The events shown and described in Indie Author Rick Carufel seeks to hire Anonymous hackers to ‘destroy’ his enemies seem to have marked a downward spiral for the hate-filled associates as predicted, especially when Reddit and media sources including the Daily Dot launched their coverage based on the article.

Bryant, Carufel and Douthit (STGRB) never quite recovered from the attention to their illegal, unethical and questionable  activities, with any support for them dwindling to nothing afterward. Reputations utterly ruined, they had very few options: close shop, or make fools of themselves. Below is the final, desperate attempt to create a marketing spin that allows any of them any dignity whatsoever.

A Final Note to Our Readers
Filed Under: News by Johnny Be Good — 1 CommentDecember 3, 2013
It has come to our attention that some of our readers are wondering why we haven’t posted much in the last few weeks.  The reason is because now that Goodreads management has finally admitted that the site has a problem with bullying and has attempted to address this problem and correct it, our mission here at STGRB is accomplished.  The fact is that the bullies have lost their “holy” war.  So, we won’t be blogging about them anymore.  We see no need.  They have been relegated to petty insignificance by the Goodreads management team and by the vast majority of Goodreads users.  In other words, they have lost their power and they won’t be getting it back.
The only regret we have is the fact that it took so long for Goodreads to acknowledge the abuse on their site and do something about it.  It should have been corrected years ago.  Our sympathies extend to those who were victims of the abuse and had no recourse or help at the time of their attack.  If GR had been a respectable and responsible management team, they would have acted.  They didn’t.  To some, this still leaves a bitter taste in their mouths and we fully understand that.  We also understand that many have seen fake ratings and reviews appear on their books as a direct result of GR policy changes and the bullies’ reaction to it (aka, their “Civil Protest”).  We’ve done our best to give you solid evidence of this and to point you in the right direction so that this problem, too, can be addressed and solved.  We feel that at this point, only a lawsuit will force Goodreads/Amazon to crack down on this.  We wish you good luck. We will be leaving our blog up as a record of what occurred and we welcome any of our readers to use it either to communicate with each other, to leave new information, or to publish guests posts (anonymous if necessary) when they wish to share a story or information with the STGRB community.  In other words, the blog is all yours.  Have fun!

Douthit, it seems, has smartly closed shop.

Carroll Bryant, however, continues his tirades and will cobble together a copy-and-paste homemade tattle diary to profit from the fiasco.

His buddy-not buddy-turned buddy again Rick Carufel is using the now-defunct movement to promote himself, his services and sites.

No one believes and not one fuck was given.

UPDATE December 5, 2013 2:02 PM PST by AreaFiveLA

It didn’t take Carroll Bryant long to make this all about him. Then again, it never does. After all, he’s subscribed to our blog so he can stalk it easier. Most unattractive. 
To the right is a screen shot of his reactionary post. I realize it is difficult to read. Right click (yes Cheryl, I said right click) on the screen shot to save it to your desktop. It can be opened in any viewer. Depending on the viewer you use, you may need to use the zoom feature. For Windows users, you can see it very clearly in Paint. 
Of interest: We changed the colors on the blog three hours after we posted the article. As you can see, the colors represented in his deftly-snipped screen shots are not the current colors on the blog. This means Carroll Bryant wrote his missive within three hours of Gen’s article going live. I would just like to point out that if this isn’t blog stalking, I’m not sure what would qualify. 
I proceed by showing you what he’s entered into the public domain. 
Please note the following: 
  • He opens with an attack on Gen, complete with referring to her as a monkey, knowing well she is a proud black woman. This is not the first time he has used racist slurs in retaliation. You can find more of them in his comments on our blog articles. He calls Gen names, from monkey to bully, bullying and harassing her throughout his post. 
  • He never acknowledges the fact that her August article spelled the downward spiral of STGRB and associates when several media sources contacted her and covered the story, making it go viral. 
  • He does not use proper screen shots of this blog. He purposely cuts them as to not show the actual information provided here. He has done this all along on his blog. This is how he attempts to manipulate the gullible. 
  • He never cites evidence. He does not link or show any links for reference. You’re simply supposed to take his word for it, even when it’s proven that he doctors his screen shots to manipulate others and at best takes part in “yellow journalism”. 
  • He attempts to refute the fact that those involved with STGRB (including him) participate in “unethical, illegal and questionable activity”. Even though the evidence of it is clearly shown throughout our blog posts here, including the many reports to sites, ISPs, social media and law enforcement. 
  • He cites a blog post he made about someone Gen is not friends with, insisting they are friends that somehow “fell out” because it suits his purpose. (Gen asked for information about Carroll Bryant from a private group because she was being contacted by the media in regard to STGRB and his role in it.) The person who wrote the article he refers to knew this (it was stated in the group) but chose to lie so everyone with sense ignored it. Bryant jumped on it, without fact-checking or referencing, which is usual fare for him. 
  • He desperately tries to discredit Gen, which he does in every post about her, even though more than one blogger has covered STGRB, its associates and their activities. He’s tried to do this all along, including mass attempts to make the public believe that she is other people.
  • He continues the ill-effective tactic of responding to what I’d call “set up” questions from “anonymous” posters. These anonymous comments always seem to praise him, feed his ego or set up a situation in which he can “impart information” in an attempt to scare or frighten other people. Yes, it gets old. 
It is my inevitable opinion that:
  • He knows our blog is popular but we don’t advertise our readership. There is no way for him to know how many views this article has. (For the record, it’s quickly breaking a thousand as I type this and I have no doubt our media contacts are already using the information given in it.) 
  • I have been told by two insider sources that Carroll Bryant monetizes his social media accounts, including his blogs, and one look at who he follows on Twitter seems to confirm the allegation. 
  • He is profiting from his hate because of monetization as well as fostering his quest for internet fame. 
  • He will do anything in his attempt to become some kind of celebrity. This only gives me pause due to his obsession for Gen. 
Without further ado, I invite you to read Carroll Bryant’s post, the text of which is posted below.

Genxpose: Still Pimping Lies
No one makes a better living at lying to her readers more than GenX herself. This girl of garbage has more hate running through her veins than a caged monkey in a zoo has fecal matter to throw at the tourists walking by.
And for all of those who actually believe GenX when she makes the butt-hurt claim that she only responds to those who post about her first, then let this be yet another piece of evidence that even those words are still her number one BS lie.
All semi quiet on the front, and STGRB announcing yet again that they have accomplished what they set out to accomplish, with no mention of GenX at all, leave it to GenX to smear her own brand of fecal matter across her worthless blog, and at her few readers, insulting their intelligence to the fullest.
Even in her latest post, she contradicts just about everything she says. She provides her very own proof that she is a liar and a bully. To start with, she writes about STGRB and me with absolutely no provocation what-so-ever. She clearly demonstrates her need to be relevant.
She starts off by claiming that STGRB and myself engaged in illegal, unethical and questionable activities. As always, her claims comes without any proof or evidence to support her claims. This is a long time practice by the queen of lies, and spin city. Is it any wonder she has dropped off the map where respectability is concerned?
(snipped screen shot used here) 
In fact, not once has she ever presented any evidence that I or STGRB has ever done anything illegal, unethical, and questionable. Not once have I or STGRB ever accused anyone falsely of being a pedophile like she and her fellow bullies have done religiously against me. Nor have we ever sent her unwanted emails like she has sent to us, again, unprovoked.
Nor has she ever presented evidence that I or STGRB ever doc dropped anyone like we have shown her to do, and you can see for yourself right here on this blog and on STGRB.
Then she goes on to lie to her readers saying that my book, “Goodreads: Meet Your Next Stalker”, which I am currently working on, will be sold to make a profit.
(snipped screen shot used here) 
I never once stated that I was going to sell it. In fact, I said I still was unsure how I was going to present it, and distribute it. I have other things going on at the moment and clearly said I had not even begun to figure out what I was going to do with the book until after December, when I could finally focus on it more. However, if I did decide to “profit” from the fiasco, who could blame me? After what she and her bully friends did to try and end my career, it would only be justice if I were to profit from their illegal activities, unethical practices, and questionable behavior, and their lies.
Still, the truth remains that I never once said I was intending to “sell” the book, but rather, make it available for promotional purposes and give-aways as GenX herself posts in the article she lied in. See for yourself. This screenshot was taken from her blog.
(snipped screen shot used here) 
See, nowhere do I mention “selling” the book. This also proves that she is still stalking my blog where just recently, in one of her posts, she claims she doesn’t do. She even writes threatening letters to herself and passes them off as if others are sending them to her.
(screen shot used here) 
Then she adds onto the lies by saying that author Rick Carufel is my “buddy-not buddy-turned buddy again”. Well, this is news to me. When has Rick ever been my “not buddy”? He and I have always been friends. Sure, we have disagreements at times, and do things differently, but we never stopped being friends at any point.
(snipped screen shot used here) 
You see, unlike the bullies, and GenX, some of us can hold different opinions with each other and still remain friends. It’s called “mutual respect” for other people’s opinions. Something GenX and her bully friends know nothing about. They hate anyone and everyone who doesn’t think and do and believe as they do. They are the ones who are always fighting amongst themselves and ending friendships when they can’t see eye to eye with each other. Us normal people don’t do that.
Remember .38 Caliber, GenX?
Then she accuses me of using the “now defunct” movement to promote myself, my services, and my sites.
Well, duh to the sites. I am an author and songwriter so I have always been promoting myself, my work and my sites. Every person with a talent to promote does this. Perhaps if GenX actually had any talent, she would know this too.
As for the “now defunct” movement? What movement? Fighting cyber bullying and bullies like her is not, and never was a movement. My posts have slowed down because Goodreads has at least made it appear as if they are taking a stand finally against the bullies. They are the ones now crying about being “bullied” or “censored” by Goodreads.
Perhaps GenX should learn the meaning of “movement” before she puts her foot in her mouth. A movement starts at one point and moves to another point then stops. The fight against cyber bullying hasn’t stopped. At least, not for me. It is my cause, and GenX has herself to thank for that. My stance began when she started “stalking”, “harassing”, and “bullying” me.
And I’m pretty sure that STGRB would pick back up if the bullies continue to attack authors the way they used to, unfortunately for them, they are now forbidden to carry on their attacks like they did in the past by Goodreads. This was always the goal of STGRB, to get those attacks to stop. Since they have stopped, STGRB sees no more reason to keep going. They did what they set out to do, which was, to bring attention to the problem and get it to stop. All they wanted was GR to police their site and enforce their ToS equally and fairly. They appear satisfied at GR’s effort.
Then she ends her rant with: “No one believes and not one fuck was given.”
(snipped screen shot used here) 
You lie again, GenX, there was one fuck given. It was given by you when you posted this article. 
 I’m Carroll Bryant …. and this is The Looking Glass.
Things We Learned Today:
* GenX insults her readers intelligence
* GenX lies
* GenX doesn’t need to be provoked
* GenX still can’t provide evidence to support any of her claims
 * GenX throws fecal matter around like a monkey
* The only “movement” that occurs is GenX’s bowels (and it ends up on her blog)
* GenX is trying desperately to be relevant
* GenX has no talent outside of hate
 * GenX is the one who uses her friends for her own selfish gain (Check out my .38 Caliber post)

It seems to me this Gen person needs to seek out some professional help regardless of who she is. I’ve read your posts and nowhere on there have you declared you were going to sell your story. I can’t help but to be flabbergasted at Gen’s assumption that authors who do sell their books are somehow doing something wrong. If that’s the only bad thing she can say about you Carroll, then I doubt you have anything to worry about. She has been proven a long time ago that she is a stalker and a bully as well as a proven liar. She has no merit to speak of or any credibility. That .38 Caliber post speaks volumes of her personality. She is a user of people and many have distanced themselves from her because of that .38 Caliber post. She isn’t fighting for any cause like you are, she’s just going around stalking you and stgrb continuing to pick fights.

She says a lot of bad things about me, she just never presents any evidence to back up her words. Why she continues to say bad things about me is a mystery. I never did anything to her to make her come after me in the first place.
She’s just a nut without a squirrel.

I can’t believe she said that! You have never spoken one bad word against Mr. Carufel and he never said one bad word against you. It must be nice to live in the world Gen does where you can make things up and pass it off as a truth. Then again, she is a democrat.

I don’t see what being a democrat has to do with lying, republicans aren’t that much better at telling the truth either. I like to look at it as an individual thing. You’re either a good person or you’re not. You’re either honest or you’re not. 
GenX is neither.

Don’t worry, everyone around here knows exactly what GenX is. That girl is so stupid she doesn’t even know she’s stupid. LOL (And that’s a lot of stupid)

UPDATE 8:10 AM GMT 6 December 2013 by StLouisKiss

Yesterday, Bryant stated on his blog (screen shot and text above) “Then she [Gen] adds onto the lies by saying that author Rick Carufel is my “buddy-not buddy-turned buddy again”. Well, this is news to me. When has Rick ever been my “not buddy”? He and I have always been friends. Sure, we have disagreements at times, and do things differently, but we never stopped being friends at any point.”
Now it’s my turn for an update, and Carufel I’m doing you a favour so I hope you’re paying keen attention. 
Bryant removed Rick Carufel from his blog on 30 October 2013 after Melissa Douthit not only kicked Carufel to the curb but displayed notification on STGRB that he was a dangerous troll not to be trusted in his own box on the sidebar. 
You can see in earlier screen shots that Carufel’s blog was proudly listed on Bryant’s own. After the final denouncement on the STGRB site, it disappeared as shown in the screen shot below. It was later re-added to the blog roll shortly before Bryant made the announcement that he would be seeking to profit from the events with Goodreads by making his tattle book, which Carufel designed the cover for. 
Carroll Bryant, amongst a host of other repugnant things, you are a pathological liar. Here is more proof for you to deny explain away. 
Look at you. You’re even a twat to people you claim are your friends and you outright lie about it. 
You dumped Carufel when he weighed you down, just like Melissa Douthit did on STGRB, but you managed to pick him up again when you thought he’d be useful to you. Need a new partner in crime now that Douthit’s bowed out? Did he design the cover for free? You’re a lying, manipulative little chav and if Carufel has any self respect he’ll dump you like rubbish and serve you your bullocks for breakfast. 
For the record, my name is Max. I’m that bloke who lives in London. That’s in England in case that confuses you. I’ve already been treated to how easily gender and names confuse you when attempting to attack others so get the information right when you mention me in your fancy new tattler — the one that attempts to profit from the misery that you’ve needlessly caused so many others.  
The internet despises you and you have yourself to thank for it.

  1. I can only imagine, now that so many people have such qualifying evidence, that hiding anything will become not only difficult but rather futile now. To close shop and run really was the best option but for how long? Who could be certain.

  2. Thank you for the second update to the article above, Max. Maybe I just have pity in my heart for crazy old men but I hope Carufel wakes up when he sees the evidence that Carroll Bryant is lying and using him. It's rather irrefutable and I suppose these rebuttals are what Bryant gets for lying about so many things so often.

  3. Betrayed again. Wow. Carufel should serve Bryant up like a stuffed pig. What a two-faced, lying, user of a backstabber Carroll Bryant is. Never thought I'd hear myself say it but I was on Rick's side when Douthit through him under a bus on STGRB and I'm on his side in this one, too. Kick him Rick!

    As an FYI, she updated her post. There is a lot more to it now directly replying to what you wrote here.

    Carroll BryantDecember 6, 2013 at 5:07 AM
    Oh goody, I can't wait to read it. LOL Thanks.

    She did not update her post, Brian. Two other people with admin rights did. Stop getting up at four something in the morning to blog stalk so you can lie about it at five am.

  5. In a dreary apartment above a pizza shop located well off the main drag of a gritty, shabby Ohio suburb, a 40-something year old loser has hurled his steak-and-cheese grinder against the wall and cursed the day he was born. It's all mom and dad's fault.

  6. “Please note: I said “Niagara” mouth, as in my earlier reference to Niagara Falls, and not “Nigger”. But we're all pretty sure that her post about me will include the lie that I called her a nigger.”

    Oh no he didn't.

  7. Somewhere a village is missing its idiot. Does he really expect anyone to believe that he can't tell the difference between Gen and several other people who openly sign their names? Or that people can't tell he's lied to them when they see the actual posts and comments on this blog? Get real.

  8. Personally, I like his harried explanation for why he removed Rick's blog from his blog roll, and the admission that he did it more than once. Removed for doc-dropping my ass. Look at all the real life names and information Bryant doc-drops on his own blog. Like anyone would believe that's the reason he dropped Rick so many times. His pants aren't on fire, they exploded he's such a liar.

  9. Hi “Carroll”

    I just wanted to let you know I'm one of those insiders who's been leaking information from your camp.

    You've probably been wondering where those great scoops come from or how they always seem to be a step ahead of you. It's me! Bet you can't guess who I am. Want a hint? You and Melissa both lied to me. I asked you twice and you both still lied. Little did you know I had the proof in my hands while you did it. That's when I knew all of you were full of shit.

    Did I mention I'm still in the group?

    All your FBI talk, acting like you got law enforcement in your back pocket. You're totally full of shit. You ran nobody off the internet. if you were so well connected you could have helped Rick when he begged for help but instead you lied again.

    I finally met Gen last night. She's terrific and we really get along great. Jealous?

    See you in the group!

  10. Oh wow! Poor widdle Carroll Bryant aka Brian “Sonny” is so crazy mad he's frothing like a rabid one-eyed three-legged raccoon with syphilis. Watch his head spin! He can't even remember which person he is pretending to be because he speaks about himself in third person at times. Double wow. I am really enjoying watching him self explode. It is sooo hard for him to keep all his lies straight. Great going, all! =))

  11. Hey Melissa, remember when you kicked Rick out of the group? It should have been me. I'm the one who spilled those beans. Have a nice day!

  12. What would you do if I told you I'm not a 17 year old girl but a 49 year old man? I saved everything and I gave it to Carlos Rodriguez.

  13. They're probably reading these comments and asking why. (Remember that thing about the IP address? So do I.)

  14. Hi “Athena” I just wanted you to know that I'm the one who fucked you over because you fucked Rick over after he did what you wanted him to do. Turn about's fair play, right?

  15. Love how Bryant shows where Gen's contacting him for confirmation on STGRB on the very first article she ever wrote. He just made her entire argument for her. She's a fact-checker. Try it sometime. ROFL Does he mention where he come over to this blog and went insane because she mentioned his PSA about the site being gone? Nope. YELLOW.

  16. I'm the guy who left the scathing review of his shitty book cover.

    I am not Gen. But it's cool that he thinks I am. I laughed so hard at him when I read that I couldn't breathe.

  17. Speaking of “non-profit” and such, is there any requirement for the publication of the accounts for public scrutiny pertaining to any site that are taking “donations” for the betterment of other people (not the blog or website's owners)? STGRB has had their donate button on there but how is anyone to know where the monies were donated?

    Just curious…

  18. Another update for you: 1/2

    Goodreads: Or Good Pedophilia? (The Book)
    I have been reading some bully comments lately that have been posted on Booklikes and Goodresds as well as other places, like the bully blogs and such. Much of their discussions revolved around the question of, “Whi is going to give a shit about me being stalked? And author attacks on Goodreads? Carpet bombing, fraudulent API and the like?

    That was a very good question. Who will give a shit? Probably not too many.

    This is when I began to realize that I had to turn the focus away from me and turn it to another direction. But what direction? Then it dawned on me that there are far more important issues that I could focus on, one of which is the sexually explicit role play groups involving adults and minors on Goodreads. I mean, I still have plenty more screenshots on file that I never used for my articles covering that issue. I could use some of those shots for the book. I could also tell my personal story within the book, and still mention all of the other things going on, but only reveal those things as a secondary backdrop to the real problem. The real issue. The most important story of them all. The dangers that children face on Goodreads to online child predators. I could even use the Karl Jones story as a prime example to my point.

    And so, I have decided to change the title (and the focus) of my book from “Goodreads: Meet Your Next Stalker”, to, “Goodreads: Or Good Pedophilia?”.

  19. 2/2

    Basically, it's the same book telling the same story only, with a much more enticing title for all of those who still haven't heard about the sexual role plays on Goodreads. I figure anyone who stumbles across that title would be more inclined to read the book than if it was just a book about internet stalkers and bullies. Not to mention, it would also bring more interested and concerned readers to my article of the same title. Pretty clever, huh?

    So I am sending out my thanks to the Goodreads / Amazon / Booklikes “Bully Nation” for giving me something to think about. I totally agree with you in that no one is really going to care about me being stalked or bullied or any other author for that matter. But people just might be interested in the dangers children face from online child predators that are lurking on Goodreads in sexual role play groups. It is, after all, way more important than everything else that is going on. Wouldn't you agree?

    I also believe that the ads and promotion I will be putting behind this book when it is released will draw much more interest too. Thanks again bullies, I knew I could count on you to steer me in the right direction. Well done.

    I'm Carroll Bryant …. and this is The Looking Glass.

    Thanks guys. I’ll do my best to make you proud. But I think we all can agree that fighting this battle on the internet has pretty much run its course. It’s time to take it to the streets with television, radio, newspapers, fund raisers, rallies, fliers, door to door petitions, you name it. The word will get out and there is nothing GR or Amazon can do about it.
    If Goodreads and Amazon do not want to clean up their act, enforce their ToS, and do the right thing then my goal will be to shut them down. If the bullies themselves do not want to stop with the carpet bombs, bookshelves, fake ratings and reviews, stalking, harassing, and Goodreads / Amazon does not want to hold the bullies accountable for their actions, then why bother writing anymore books? I might as well spend my time doing something else, and this is what I have decided to do with that spare time. After this sci-fi books gets released, the only books I will be publishing will be the books that focus on Amazon / Goodreads and the bullies. They want books to hate, then by God I will give them books to hate.
    But this internet “blog” wars is ending for me in 2014. Now I will be fighting back in the real world and through real media. Maybe my destiny in life isn’t to be an author or songwriter, maybe it was meant for me to take on Amazon / Goodreads and the criminal activity taking place on their sites. And I will do it right from the start by focusing on the sexual role plays that puts minors at risk to online pedophiles. I will start in Chjillicothe and let it spread out from there. I will start with the Chillicothe elite, doctors, lawyers, business owners, and politicians. The rest will follow.
    I hope to hold my first rally no later than August 2014 in Yoctangee Park. Earlier if possible. And it will be a rally protesting Goodreads. My goal is to let all authors know that Goodreads and Amazon forums are nothing more than graveyards for their books and their careers. The message will get out. And again, there will be nothing Amazon or GR can do to stop it.

    We received another request to post the following screenshots of Anne Rice on the Amazon Fora. She makes some rather insightful remarks about the disdain and condescension with which authors are treated in one of the world’s largest bookstores:…

  22. Let him try to hold “rallies.” Most people have busy lives and carefully choose worthwhile things to rally for. Like world hunger, animal rights, marriage equality, etc. Most people barely read one book a year so they are not going to get off their tuckus to rally for whiny authors demanding book review rights.

    Let him solicit donations and run fund raisers. Most people are not interested in giving money to conceited authors who are whining that someone does not like their book.

    Let him waste money (hopefully all of his own) on TV, radio, and newspaper ads. If he slanders Amazon / Goodreads with his sexual role playing nonsense, they will slaughter him.

    Let him go to the Chillicothe elite. I live in Ohio and I do not pay attention to anything anyone in Chillicothe says. No one else in the country will have the slightest interest. The Chillicothe elite will probably be bored out of their minds anyways.

    Let him waste his pathetic little life. Maybe he'll be too busy running around in self-important circles to harass innocent readers and reviewers.

  23. Havi is there any way we can get the recent comments feature back on the blog? Not to sound like a comments stalker but I look forward to reading what you and Gen have to say. xx Rita

  24. He is a pathetic worm.
    His universe has only one occupant: himself.
    He imagines he is being stalked because he believes he is soooo special that everyone must stalk him just to be close to his glorious self.

    When actually we just keep an eye on him to make sure he does not pee on our roses.
