Hello and welcome to my profile.

Where do I begin?

Well, let’s start by talking about a self-important little group called the “LU” shall we?

Their “co-leader” is “Ever Heard of a Dictionary” who is a REAL piece of work, let me tell you!

Let me let her speak for herself, because truthfully, she digs her own grave:

I need to make something clear for everyone. If anyone PMs me about going to regret my actions later on, save it. I do not repent for the reviews and reports I have submitted. I will not repent for the reviews and reports I have submitted. And I am not repentant for the reviews and reports I have submitted. My reviews and reports have been submitted upon my own thinking and I am proud enough to not insult myself for regretting my own decisions.

She THINKS? She actually believes she THINKS?? Uh, no. You know what's hysterical? When a person is leaving a review for the sole purpose of telling someone they can't read or write and then they say GUT WRETCHING proving that they indeed CANNOT SPELL OR WRITE! Unlike Alanis Morisette's song, this does, in fact, contain irony!! More irony? They have the word "dictionary" IN THEIR NAME!

Can't...breathe...am holding my stomach because I'm laughing so hard it HURTS.

"Dictionary and George are the two leaders of the Literate Union. One is a flamer, the other a concritter. Dictionary is funny, flirty, witty, chatty, and probably the friendlier of the two. Though she is sweet, she's brutally honest, so sometimes she seems meaner than she actually is. She considers her friends' feelings above all else, but also does not open up to anyone except those she is closest to. George, like Dictionary, is quite flirty. However, he prefers a more perverted method than most and finds it highly amusing when the unprepared become quite flustered. As a wise man once said, 'Asking George not to be mean is about as good as asking a cow to bark.' George lives for Teh Lulz and he doesn't care if you're friend or foe: irritate him and he'll let you know about it in the bluntest possible way. Both leaders split duties between them. Dictionary handles most of the noob/member hunting, flame hunting, and mass emailing. George meanwhile fixes up all tech requirements, such as our email and the multi-email settings. He updates the blog, the FH wiki page, and does various behind-the-scenes jobs, as well as running the forum."

What in the HELL? This has got to be a spoof, right? Something funny? No? Damn. For a minute I thought I was wrong and these self-important idiots actually had a sense of humor. TOO BAD.

ZEES ARE ZEE RULES AND YOU VILL FOLLOW ZEE RULES OR YOU VILL BE PUNISHED! I VILL REPORT YOU AND IT EES NOT MY FAULT IF YOUR STORY IS REMOVED! ZEES ARE ZEE RULES!

I would just laugh off this self-aggrandizing, self-important, delusional, small-minded little twit if she wasn’t running around with her minions terrorizing authors into removing or “revising” their stories.

She and her merry band of little snitches run around like the morality police black plague, gleefully informing authors that they’ve REPORTED THEM.

They say “all the authors have to do is remove the smut!”

Where have I heard that before?

Oh yeah. Book-burning a-holes throughout history. Examples will be given below.

Their belief? The ToS is the HOLY BIBLE!

Really?

YES, REALLY! I could NOT make this stuff up if I tried!

If only all of us could be this simple-minded. This black and white. To believe that what one small group feels is good, should just be what is good for EVERYONE.

Alas, I am a critical complicated thinker who ACTUALLY has a mind of her own, unlike Dictionary and her dead-above-the-neck minions.

What do they say?

It’s FOR THE CHILDREN!

No.

If they were REALLY concerned, they would work WITH the websites in changing the rules to PROTECT THEM! They would work WITH authors to get the rules changed so they could continue to post their stories in peace and tranquility. All the morality police do is stop people from reading the stories on ff! They ALL follow the author to the other fifty different websites where they’ve posted and continue reading.

Maybe they want to get ff taken down?

So you’ve gotta ask: Is it really for the children?

No.

It’s about Dictionary’s need for power and control. If anybody thinks that after gaining this much power and amassing other like-minded book-burning Fascist brain-dead minions while saying things like “WE’RE SAVING FF BECAUSE THEY MIGHT BE SUED” and they all nod and spew this drivel to other brain-dead people who nod their heads and take up the “cause,”…think again.

“Amberlighted” sigh.

The M rating is the only one allowed on this site and that means any graphic descriptions of sex are not allowed. If you are visiting my profile because I've reported your story you should know it isn't personal. I have a life and I'm not a kid. I report every story that I find in violation of the TOS. If you haven't violated them then you have nothing to worry about but the excuse that everyone is doing it doesn't cut it. You got caught this time. Move your story to a site that allows graphic adult content.

Look how proud she is of her ignorance! Her brain has been washed clean. She is left without an original thought in her head. Maybe it was empty before and Dictionary filled it up with her mindless Fascist drivel. Wow. Check out how PROUD she is of herself!! She has a life? Really? So then what is she doing running around pretending that she's saving children? Man, someone needs a lobotomy. Stat. The chip the size of a boulder is sitting there on her shoulder. The self-rightous rant? Check and double-check.

Apparently some members of this group don't understand the difference between "German People" and "Nazi". I'm not surprised, since they understand NOTHING about history! Let me school you, oh brainwashed ones:

German person: A person who was born in Germany.

Nazi Party:

A fascist party, requiring from its members supreme devotion to the German government — the Third Reich (see fascism and socialism). The Nazis rose to power by promising the people that Germany, which had been humiliated after World War I, would become powerful again.

The Nazis opposed communism and free intellectual inquiry. Desiring to form a master race that would rule the world, they fought the influence in Germany of peoples not of “pure” descent. Their power was particularly directed at controlling Jews in Germany and in the countries that Germany conquered in war. After depriving Jews of their property and confining them in concentration camps, the Nazis employed the Final Solution of killing them in large numbers; an estimated six million Jews lost their lives (see Holocaust). Also marked for extermination were the mentally and physically handicapped and “enemies of the Reich” such as Slavs, communists, Gypsies, homosexuals, Christians who resisted the government, and defenders of intellectual freedom. The Nazis fought World War II to spread their principles worldwide but were defeated. Twenty-two of their leaders were convicted of war crimes at the Nuremberg trials.

EVEN JUST BEING A MEMBER OF THE NAZI PARTY MEANS YOU AGREE WITH THEIR TACTICS!

I just found more stuff! Saw this posted in a review and thought it was AWESOME!

Lord Kelvin – Moderator for the Literate Union

Example of his self-important, high-minded but says ABSOLUTELY NOTHING review:

Pronoun addiction syndrome.

Fix your title and summary to depict an actual story, not a smut drama. The administrator might assume you have copied it off an adult site. M is not MA, you get limits.

Have a nice, abuse-free day.

Could he GET more jerky? More full of himself? OH YES HE CAN! Goodness, but these people really talk and talk and TALK but say ABSOLUTELY NOTHING.

I would assume they came together because nobody else would listen to their self important blahblahblahblahblah.

Ever heard of a dictionary – Co-Founder of the Literate Union

Posting non-story chapters is illegal on FFN. You are ripping off your readers by providing them no content, but still wishing to generate review traffic.That's comparable to getting a candy wrapper instead of candy.All of you novices can squirm as much as you wish, but this story was supposed to be rated MA. MA was forbidden on this site for years, so I wish the poster and the public a good trip to adult fan fiction dot net. They host such uploads and offer plenty of competition for an aspiring senseless smut uploader. There, you won't need to mask your story as something friendly to underage individuals. Consider redirecting your complaints to Georgasaurus in the Literate Union forum.Have a nice, abuse-free day."

SEE? TALKTALKTALK but says NOTHING. All he's saying is this:

I believe in censorship. Book burning is good. I hate people who don't do exactly what I personally feel is right.

I am a self-important a-hole.

That "abuse-free" crap and they ALL TALK THE SAME with their "concrits" and like they get together in their little brain-washing cult and come up with words from what I can only assume is Sookie Stackhouse's "Word a Day" calendar.

The Magic Flying Walrus
2010-02-02 . chapter 1

"Tell me, Shannon, how's your son doing? Does he know you can't write for crap? Oh, the shame he'll feel when he realizes his mother is so bad at writing, she has to write cheap smut that has no excitement factor at all. It's as if a large, invisible hand has picked up your characters and started smacking them together, like a child playing house with her favorite dolls."

The forums that these people hide under are just masks for their work against the authors and stories that the people in the Literate Union deem unworthy. They take it upon themselves to police the site and look for stories that they think are unacceptable in terms of spelling, grammar, plot, or content.

Then, the Literate Union sends mass emails to their members and post links in their forums so that the other members and non-member people who hang out in their forums can click on the link and report the stories numerous times. They even have members as young as 13 who are asked to click on links to M rated stories and report them. M rated stories are only appropriate for ages 16 and up. By asking these young members to visit M rated stories they are engaging in the act of Contributing to the Delinquency of a Minor.

The excuse of the Literate Union is that the content on should be acceptable for any age and that anyone will click on the stories. May I present this information?

Stated in section 5F: "You understand that when using the Website, you will be exposed to User Submissions from a variety of sources, and that is not responsible for the accuracy, usefulness, safety, or intellectual property rights of or relating to such User Submissions. You further understand and acknowledge that you may be exposed to User Submissions that are inaccurate, offensive, indecent, or objectionable, and you agree to waive, and hereby do waive, any legal or equitable rights or remedies you have or may have against with respect thereto, and agree to indemnify and hold , its Owners/Operators, affiliates, and/or licensors, harmless to the fullest extent allowed by law regarding all matters related to your use of the site."

The Literate Union argues that the material in the stories that they oppose and object to is offensive, indecent, and objectionable. Yet, fanfiction’s TOS state that each person may be exposed to that kind of material and they waive any rights. These people have no right to police the stories on fanfiction and report them numerous times in one day just because the information was offensive, indecent, and/or objectionable.

The icing on the cake of this group is that they consider themselves above the rules and regulations that they attempt to enforce. The co-founder, Georgeasaurus, has a swastika on his profile which falls in with the hate crimes.

These people, these self proclaimed literate people, need to be stopped and their actions ceased. They have targeted a number of fanfiction authors and are attacking them through organized mass emails to the members asking them to contact the author and leave mean comments on their reviews and in private messages, and they repeatedly report the stories they deem unacceptable. One member even admitted to reporting a story over 25 times in a few days. That is harassment and stalking and should not be acknowledged or allowed.

This book-burning group needs to be stopped. If you think they’re not dangerous, let me point out people throughout history who had the same views. Others thought they were just crazy and nobody would listen to them. They were wrong:

BOOK BURNING

Book burning is the practice of destroying, often ceremoniously, one or more copies of a book or other written material. In modern times, other forms of media, such as phonograph records, video tapes, and CDs have also been ceremoniously burned, torched, or shredded. The practice, usually carried out in public, is generally motivated by moral, religious, or political objections to the material.

Some particular cases of book burning are long and traumatically remembered - because the books destroyed were irreplaceable and their loss constituted a severe damage to cultural heritage, and/or because this instance of book burning has become emblematic of a harsh and oppressive regime. Such were the destruction of the Library of Alexandria, the burning of books and burying of scholars under China's Qin Dynasty, the destruction of Mayan codices by Spanish conquistadors and priests, and in more recent times, Nazi book burnings and the destruction of the Sarajevo National Library.

Thus, heretical texts do not turn up as palimpsests, washed clean and overwritten, as pagan ones do; many early Christian texts have been as thoroughly "lost" as if they had been publicly burnt.

In his 1821 play, Almansor, the German writer Heinrich Heine — referring to the burning of the Muslim holy book, the Qur'an, during the Spanish Inquisition — wrote, "Where they burn books, so too will they in the end burn human beings." ("Dort, wo man Bücher verbrennt, verbrennt man auch am Ende Menschen.")

One century later, Heine's books were among the thousands of volumes that were torched by the Nazis in Berlin's Opernplatz.

The advent of the digital age has resulted in an immense collection of written work being catalogued exclusively or primarily in digital form. The intentional deletion or removal of these works has been often referred to as a new form of book burning.

This reference is more closely related to the relationship between book burning and censorship than the systematic and categorical elimination of a particular body of literary work. In general, book burning does not refer to individual censorship, but rather to an act of mass censorship, and the term is applied appropriately only when these types of digital cases are suspected to be epidemic or widespread and systemic.

FASCISM:

Fascists claim that culture is created by collective national society and its state, that cultural ideas are what give individuals identity, and thus rejects individualism. Fascism rejects and resists autonomy of cultural or ethnic groups who are not considered part of the fascists' nation and who refuse to assimilate or are unable to be assimilated. Fascists consider attempts to create such autonomy as an affront and threat to the nation.

WITCH HUNT – McCARTHYISM:

Suspicions were often given credence despite inconclusive or questionable evidence, and the level of threat posed by a person's real or supposed leftist associations or beliefs was often greatly exaggerated. Many people suffered loss of employment, destruction of their careers, and even imprisonment. Most of these punishments came about through trial verdicts later overturned, laws that would be declared unconstitutional, dismissals for reasons later declared illegal or actionable, or extra-legal procedures that would come into general disrepute.

The social costs of what came to be called McCarthyism have yet to be computed. By conferring its prestige on the red hunt, the state did more than bring misery to the lives of hundreds of thousands of Communists, former Communists, fellow travelers, and unlucky liberals. It weakened American culture and it weakened itself.

Sylvia Jarrico, former wife of the blacklisted Paul Jarrico, who was fired from her job as an editor with Hollywood Quarterly because she refused to sign the University of California loyalty oath, says simply,

"We lived with the constant sense of being hunted." There is no knowing what intellectual losses were suffered by the widespread insistence on loyalty oaths, but George Stewart, reporting on the impact of the loyalty oath, wrote that his colleagues exhibited "worry depression, fatigue, fear, insomnia, drinking, headaches, indigestion, failure to function well, worsening of relations to colleagues, suspicion, distrust, loss of self-respect." In May 1952, The New York Times reported intimidation of librarians across the nation by Legionnaires, by Sons and Daughters of the American Revolution, by Minutemen in Texas and California. School texts showing city slums, UNESCO material, all books by such threats to the free world as Howard Fast were purged from school libraries. Even the world of sports was not immune to the terror and the absurd assumptions it bred. The sportscaster Bill Stern observed over the Mutual Broadcasting System as late as October 6, 1958, that the lack of interest in "big time" football at New York University, Chicago, Harvard, and City College "is due to the widespread acceptance of Communism at the universities."

Do you authors feel you are being “hunted”?

Please join me in getting this group wiped from the face of the earth. Maybe wipe the smug smirks right off their faces.

We are smarter, more resourceful and, unlike Dictionary’s minions, actually DO think for ourselves.

I know you authors who got your stories removed don’t want to post again on ff, but wouldn’t it be AWESOME if they went through all this hard work…only to have the stories re-posted?

Their censorship-lovin’ small-thinking book-burnin’ minds would EXPLODE!

Ahhh…it would be like getting prop 8 repealed (that anti gay marriage initiative in California) after so much money was invested to get it passed.

If you see one of their terrorist self-rightous "YOU HAF BEEN REPORTED!" reviews, let me know and they will be listed here. They need to get out from under their rocks and brought into the light! If they're so proud of what they're doing, EVERYONE should know who they are!

In the words of Jerry Maguire: Help me help you.
