Well, it finally happened, I got BANNED!

Freedom of Speech is our First Amendment RIGHT as American Citizens but lots of people don’t give a shit about that. They’re more interested in censorship, bullying, controlling, and championing what they perceive as ‘marginalized’ voices. Such is the case with the FaceBook page Indie Authors and Book Blogs. Whatever. They’re not the first place to ‘ban’ me because I dared rise up and challenge their bullshit. They won’t be the last.
Look, according to their ‘rules’ there are to be “no asshat comments” (Thank you Castile!) on their posts. Yet, time and again, they allow asshat ‘confessions’ from, of course, anonymous confessors all the time. But we as mere commentators are supposed to support those jerkwads or say nothing at all.
If you put your opinion out there—well behind the guise of anonymity– then you NEED to be prepared to take the backlash or…shut the fuck up, you little whiny pussy. You couldn’t even put your NAME on your confession/complaint. And I’m supposed to take you seriously?
I think not.
It is now crystal clear to me that all of their anonymous confessors are free to say whatever they want behind the protective veil of anonymity but those of us, like me, who dare to comment with our full names are unimportant and we, “Nellies’ can kiss their irrelevant ass even as they try to portray themselves as champions of the Indie Community.
Well, the anonymous and ignorant of the First Amendment ‘Indie Community’ that is.
So, it was fun and now its done.
Oh…yeah…’Nellie.’ Someone on one of their posts said: Whoa Nellie.
When I reminded that commentator I was NOT a horse or a mule…that’s when I was banned. But of course, that comment wasn’t considered ‘asshat’ just my reply defending myself.
Like I said: It was fun but now it’s done.
I used to really like participating in their Thursday Confessions until it became over-run with ‘shout outs’ to authors/editors/bloggers that were NAMED. One of the conditions of their Thursday Confessions was that authors/editors/bloggers could NOT be named. Get it?
Yeah, me too.
One ‘confessor’ today posted they were disappointed with the shout-outs and they’d BOUGHT one of the ‘shout-out’ author’s books and found it to be…well, let’s just say….sub-par.
I didn’t blame the confessor. I think those ‘shout-outs’ are a JOKE! Face it, all ‘confessions’ are anonymous so who knows if the author is ‘shouting out’ on behalf of themselves. I think those types of ‘confessions’ should be BANNED. Ignored. Considered Null and Void whenever they come in for posting If that page was honest with themselves they’d consider them the same. But they don’t.
So it was ME someone who truly understand the First Amendment who was banned. Oh yeah and BTW I also understand the ENGLISH LANGUAGE and make no allowances for those who don’t. Let me just say the word the page owner was looking for was ‘totally’ and NOT ‘totes’. Totes are rubber slip ons that go over your shoes to keep them safe for the rain. As for ‘mcgotes’…who the hell knows.
If you want to be an author…show a command of the English language and not slang. Slang is for talking to other people and those who can’t pass English 101. It is NOT for who wish to be taken SERIOUSLY as an author. Neither is short hand like ‘AF’ (As fuck). Grown the hell up. Reach down as far as you can and pull up your Adult Underwear so that it rides somewhere near your waist. Ya know, rather than under your ass then mysteriously wonder; What?
Darling, you’re a douche.
There’s no escaping it. You’re a no balls eunuch with no measurable no spine and top it off with the proverbial cherry; you’re full of douchebags. You’re more concerned with the ity bitty fweelings of cowardly anonymous posters than you are with the legitimate gripes of those of us who post to your FB page with no shield.
If that’s ok with you then live it! Love it! Shout it from the hilltops. But don’t wonder what happened when someone with an IQ over 69 questions you’re scuzzy ass as they very politely exercise their First Amendment Right to question you and call you to task.
If you can’t take the heat stay the fuck out of the kitchen.
For those of you still trickling in here and, more importantly, for those of you whose butt is still aching from the pinky finger that went up it to the first knuckle….here’s my official response to those “butt hurt” “Nellies” out there click here.
