My love for Goodreads is ruined and I am so sad. This censorship debacle has been so discouraging. I am reading more and more on these awful people that post and trade Goodreader's real names and personal info to then make threats against them. I cannot be a part of something that is a threat to the safety of a person who is just sharing an opinion of a book. This is so insane.... I used to love that place.
I would love to become an active member of this site but my reviews aren't clever or visually interesting. I just like to read and share my opinions with other readers. I want to read books and rate them, and save lists of the stuff I liked, and read other people's lists of what they liked, and why. I will try but frankly this whole debacle has left me feeling over-exposed and vulnerable. I am not a troll and the only author interactions I have had have been very pleasant. I write mostly three and four star reviews. I just don't know that these harmless reviews aren't going to catch the eye of some nut who will then target for not liking their favorite book.... Is it really worth it? Today, I feel like the answer is no.
