I grew up in Japan, so I"m a dedicated otaku. Since coming to the States I've enjoyed shows like Danny Phantom, Avatar, and Kim Possible. I was disappointed when they were canceled.
This is a news update about a group called the Eliminator Group that Alisi Thorndyke has informed me about. I'm just passing the word.
Hello everyone! :) From what it appears, the "Eliminator" Group seems to have been making a real pest of themselves lately, but at the same time, a site member by the name of Carnival Nightsteed has made this announcement (someone else beating me to the punch to speak up on the issue lol, but I have contributed my part!) about the fate of the site if they continue their unethical actions and treatment of the authors on this site. While some of the members of this group have pure of heart intentions to keep the authors abiding by the rules, don't get me wrong, a lot of those "mods" have crossed the dividing lines of helping and hurting. Below is his/her message:
I did my research and your the Eliminator group is verging on violating state laws against bullying which states
193-F:3 Definitions. – In this chapter: I. (a) "Bullying'' means a single significant incident or a pattern of incidents involving a written, verbal, or electronic communication, or a physical act or gesture, or any combination thereof, directed at another pupil which: (1) Physically harms a pupil or damages the pupil's property; (2) Causes emotional distress to a pupil; (3) Interferes with a pupil's educational opportunities; (4) Creates a hostile educational environment; or (5) Substantially disrupts the orderly operation of the school. (b) "Bullying'' shall include actions motivated by an imbalance of power based on a pupil's actual or perceived personal characteristics, behaviors, or beliefs, or motivated by the pupil's association with another person and based on the other person's characteristics, behaviors, or beliefs. II. "Cyberbullying'' means conduct defined in paragraph I of this section undertaken through the use of electronic devices. III. "Electronic devices'' include, but are not limited to, telephones, cellular phones, computers, pagers, electronic mail, instant messaging, text messaging, and websites. IV. "Perpetrator'' means a pupil who engages in bullying or cyberbullying. V. "School property'' means all real property and all physical plant and equipment used for school purposes, including public or private school buses or vans. VI. "Victim'' means a pupil against whom bullying or cyberbullying has been perpetrated. Source. 2000, 190:1. 2004, 205:1, eff. June 11, 2004. 2010, 155:2, eff. July 1, 2010. one of your forum members with the pen name Mr. Perfectionist has been known to give reviews that violate these laws for they upset authors who are most likely in high school. and with your ages non disclosed, it might also bridge upon child harassment if any of you are over 18. The above law is from the New Hampshire law book but most states share similar polices. If just one person complains to an official that one of your groups comments upsets their school environment per 193-F:4 Pupil Safety and Violence Prevention. – I. Bullying or cyberbullying shall occur when an action or communication as defined in RSA 193-F:3: (a) Occurs on, or is delivered to, school property or a school-sponsored activity or event on or off school property; or (b) Occurs off of school property or outside of a school-sponsored activity or event, if the conduct interferes with a pupil's educational opportunities or substantially disrupts the orderly operations of the school or school-sponsored activity or event. You all could be sued. Since the site is designed for teens who are probably in high school or younger, your group would be proven guilty in a court of law. The group eliminator and all its members should cease action in critiquing others and insisting they do certain actions, or there is a good chance legal action could be taken by someone. I don't feel that it is really worth the time but someone could. I also don't feel that it is the job of site members to group up and attack writers.
Here is part of, but most important, my original message on the Eliminator forum that I had to address considering the rules that they said they follow, but was full of logical fallacies:
The Flaming application: This shouldn't even be apart of this group as it provides people who love misery to go and make other author's miserable, especially if they are just starting out on the site like so many of them are. Considering I work with people in group therapy sessions, I have heard stories of how these people make others miserable because they have an inner conflict to resolve. Translation: They make others miserable because they are, not only that, it's a self-esteem issue. While this is the internet and mostly anything goes, the person on the other side of that screen have feelings too. If the rules apply to you, then this should be taken down effective immediately! If you like that no flaming has taken place since April that application shouldn't have existed. [This is considered encouraging harassment and spamming, which is also against the site policy. So if the rules here apply to you guys too, then why are you encouraging harassment/spamming? If authors can't do it to other members, then you shouldn't be allowed to do it either! I'm just not believing the amount of loopholes that this group is trying to find to justify their actions] but be more than happy to correct me if I'm wrong on that.
So if this has occurred with any of you, you have options, but before resorting to this, Eliminator forum director Exploding Head will take concerns about your complaints/his mods behavior. If you love posting your fics here, you have options, especially if you don't want to see this site shut down because some members can't control themselves. In a lot of states, the government will do this, especially if the Cyberbullying continues, this site being the cluster for it all, and now a days, that is considered punishable by law considering the many lives lost because of bullying in all forms. In my state, they will do it in a heartbeat. If you are against it and love this site, speak up! Not only will we be out of some place to post our ideas, but also they would be out of quote on quote "work" considering they have nothing else better to do with their lives and themselves.
That is all for now and thanks for your time,
Alisi Thorndyke :)
