I am so happy for you. I think I will be deleting mine too. I just want to get all my reviews set and formatted first. I am definitely not using it. Basically I am trying to break up with Goodreads but it is hard to say goodbye. I want the ugly out of my life too though. Once my profile is gone, those fuckers can't call me a Goodreads bully cuz I am not there anymore. :D

Honestly? I don't give a flying fuck if they call me a bully anymore. It's all horse shit anyhow. I was just sick of all the two-faced, schoolyard bullshit. Getting the email to say my shelf supports stgrb and due to author had been deleted when all I did on those was catalogue books I had no interest in reading because of those reasons, was the straw that broke the camels back. I'd all but stopped using GR as anything but a way to keep in touch with people anyway. The fun had gone from it.

Glad you and Lyn are here and on FB though. Aside from Kat, Steph and a few other people I didn'te really interact with anyone else on a regular basis on there any way lol. And most of them are on here now too.

Yup, same. Everyone I care about is either here or on Facebook or Twitter. I don't need Goodreads. The only thing it is good for is publishing dates and publishers.
Therapeutic and relaxing. I had no idea you had shelves deleted, dude.

Yeah two shelves and about 6 reviews that literally said "my reasons are my own"
I am feeling better about this move, now that I understand the site. I sent a Tweet drectly to Goodreads, pointing out that they forgot to remove my Author is a Bully shelf. Suck on it.

I deleted my entire account after I downloaded my database. One less user for them to quote in numbers.

LOL @ Lyn for tweeting Goodreads that. Glad you are both here.

This is the only real option. Shelfari is crammed full of bba's promoting their shit and playing the victim. Librarything has a library cap of 200 books before you need to pay... At least here it can be a somewhat open forum and can be used as a micro logging platform to boot.
