When I first joined Facebook in 2010 I knew nothing about it. One of the first things I noticed was the eagerness of group owners to kick people from groups. Seemed like they were just looking to kick people from groups for imagined reasons, all part of the delusional mindset that the internet grants nobodies importance, superiority, expertise and authority. It grants none of these things. What it does do is allow sociopathic delusions to express themselves thereby revealing who the sociopaths are. Their behavior tags them as such.
When called on this they go into a rage. The easiest way to spot these sociopathic trolls is they always blame their victims, as all psychopaths do, for any attacks. The victim is always the blame and they deserve any personal attack because they had the audacity to go online. They wouldn't get attacked online if they didn't use the internet would they? So anything that happens is their fault for being online, or so the sociopathic logic goes.
I joined a bunch of groups and discovered that for some groups it was all about control. The owners of the groups want nothing but to control every post and comment by members. If something is said they don't approve of you can suddenly not find the group or the Admins to ask why you were kicked These piss-ants on power trips not only will kick you from a group for the flimsiest of reasons but they will also block you from the group , unfriend you and block you there too. They effectively try to completely isolate and ostracize people for the sole reason of exercising their power to do so. They feel emboldened by this ability to fuck with people this way.
Just recently I was the victim of this type of petty attack once again. This time it was in a Facebook group called Stephen King Lovers. This was a complete ambush by trolls. When I first joined the group I asked if I could sell my King as Pennywise prints in the group and was told yes by the founder of the group. I made a post and it dissapeared the next day. I also notice one of the admins, Ric Mason has taken my print and made it his pic. So not only did Mason remove my post but he stole my art. I contacted the founder and she over-ruled Mason and I put the post back up.
As with all internet trolls Mason wasn't happy at all about his authority to censor as he pleased challenged and his actions overturned. This happened in August.
Just recently I started a new project KingCon, a Stephen King Horror Convention. I was once again granted permission to use the SKL group to organize it. This was clearly too much for Mason, his tiny troll mind saw this as a personal affront of his delusions authority, importance, and superiority.
So he gets his buddy Trevor McCrea to come into the group and call my plans for a convention a scam. That basically, as I see it, is calling me a liar, a thief and a fraud. I say I will not stand for such personal attacks on my character from trolls. I ask if he is willing to defend the statement my project is a scam in court in a defamation and libel lawsuit. I subsequently am kicked from the group for threatening legal action for his public defamation and libel.
They block me so I cannot see the group and all the admins, in unison unfriended me and block me too.
Not one word from the admins about Trevor accusing me of running a scam, I am the bad guy for calling him on it. This shows a few things about the group.
First members and admins are in cahoots to fuck with people.
Second it is clearly OK to call someone a liar, thief and fraud, but not OK to defend oneself when attacked in that way.
Third they have a routine of completely isolating anyone they target so they clearly do this regularly to people.
All this adds up to a group with the admins who envision themselves as in complete control of 50k members and they will target, attack and eliminate anyone who they feel challenges their delusional powers.
I have screen shots of Trevor McCrea accusing me of running a scam and the admins supporting his attack. I may have to file a lawsuit just to show the FB trolls there are repercussion to fucking with people for sport. I can file a lawsuit and let them pay for attorneys to fight it. Then they won't be so smug and cocksure.
If you are a member of that group, leave it, and join the group called Stephen King. It does not have these problems with admins and many of the same people are in both groups.
As usual the trolls hate to see people try and do good things and do their damnedest to make everyone as miserable as they are. I guess the delusion of power is better than no power at all.
In my next post I will give the details about KingCon.
