Remember that author pal of Ms. Vidal's, who joined in to attempt to get the attention of a reviewer's employer and making accusations against him?
If you don't, you can read about it here: Another Author Joins in the Fun.
Well, I am pleased to report that particular author as of today is no longer a GoodReads Author.
It had been noticed a few days ago that the offending comment of hers posted to Ms. Vidal's blog and FB page had been removed. Presumably she'd gotten an inkling it had gotten her into some hot water. Just as Vidal had deleted her blog post targeting reviewers right before she also lost her GR Author status.
A third author has joined in the fun, harassing Ms. M. on one of her reviews. After careful research it's been determined this author has been rating/reviewing the same books from two different GoodReads accounts. Most are his own books, but a couple are books written by his pals. He also has posted ratings of some of his books under more than one format.
This all has been reported to GoodReads. Hopefully they'll get that mess cleaned up soon as well.
