Goodreads Fail



And this is why you don't accept random invites on GoodReads. Idiotic tweenies ruining the Internet, filling it with dumb questions and comments. (Sorry for the crappy screenshots. Windows is dumb at resizing. Click on the images for true size)

Hope you don't think it's spammy for me to leave a note. I'm the LibraryThing guy. Compare and contrast?

Not that we don't get the sort of thing, occasionally. For some reason some tweens are very fond of creating "random" groups, where they swap nearly meaningless phrases with each other. We banned such groups. Members also seem to enjoy finding where a tween has mentioned they're not 13—the minimum age for LT and most social networks, for legal reasons—and forwarding them to us for deletion...
