I was a member of WIN- Writer's Investigative Network. Someone posted a link to one of my Amazon reviews as the 'start' and evidence of a planned 'attack' on a writer.
I spoke up. It was not an 'attack', nor was it plan or 'evidence' of a plan to harass that writer. It was my opinion. I informed them of this.
I thought that was the end of it. Nope. I was removed.
Well... ya know what? I had sat on the fence about STGRB and WIN, and other 'groups', and backed away, especially when it started being more rage-filled ranting and bullying- basically the very thing it was supposedly started to prevent and all and I tried not to take sides... but you know... these asshats have pushed me right out of neutrality.
I took a list of the members and have placed each and every one of them on my 'do not purchase' list. They want to pass judgement by association, so will I.
