I am an independent reviewer & your comment is defamatory and has been reported to amazon. Readers if you look at my original review it explains what a fluffy bunnie is and if the shoe fits-wear it!
“My review
“Fluffy bunny is a fake wiccan, usully in their teens, with little or no information about the religion. Tend too make noise about their path. It is used as a derogatory term for someone who is ignorant, wilfully ignorant and/or disrespectful towards Wicca yet claims to be Wicca.”Here is the link that I saw for myself and proved that you Lesley are a flufy bunny administrator with all the others mentioned in this childish anti-wiccan group. I am writing to amazon about this defamatory comment.
Proof of my statement:
The link to your group on FB – The Coven of the Fluffie Bunnies IV The Sparkilee Editun
http://www.facebook.com/FluffsIV –

A fluffy bunnie is: “It is used as a derogatory term for someone who is ignorant, wilfully ignorant and/or disrespectful towards Wicca yet claims to be Wicca.”

Lesley Jackson Administrator
Boudica Foster Administrator
Diana Jones Administrator
Angel Pellegrin Administrator
Aelwyn Daeira Administrator
Shullie H Porter Administrator
& a few more “wilfully ignorant and/or disrespectful towards Wicca yet claims to be Wicca” members. When i looked into your fluffy bunnie group I saw you had a terrible stab at me for being fake which is exactly the opposite I am possibly one of the only real reviewers here!
This information may be of interest to witchy nexus and indeed amazon you are the epitomy of the meaning of fluffy bunnies for which most pagans have no respect; myself included.

http://www.facebook.com/FluffsIV – Here you boost one of your own administrators books namely Boudica Foster 5 stars all the way this is unethical and against amazon’s policy for posting reviews.

If you had taken the time to look at my page you would have seen my website and not posted such blithering rubbish! I love this book and I do not respect fluffy bunnies especially those who post fake reviews so I did, follow other fans links wich has proven to me that you are fluffy bunnies who post fake reviews on each others books etc and all of you are listed in the link as administrators of a fluffy bunny group. No respect for any of you.”

We are aware that Shullie, Boudica, Lesley, Linus etc are constantly on their computers especially in amazon posting childish words such as “badly edited” and a lot worse however, dont take the bait as they are doing a fine job of making themselves look like “fluffy bunnies” and as Lesley Jackson backed this up herself leave them to it. What is very hard to understand is why another writer would spend her entire day posting “badly edited” etc??? Perhaps Boudica foster will give us an answer and not a fluffy bunnie one. Who knows stranger things have happened. The book is selling thank you for those buying it and coming to us asking relevant questions.

“5 OUT OF 5 WANDS- Excellent book! The Holy…” a review of: GUIDEBOOK FOR THE NEW WITCH …
Hawksquill says: 5 OUT OF 5 WANDS- Excellent book! The Holy Grail for New Pagans with everything you need to know in this one reference book! “Everything you want to know about paganism/wicca in the one place at last!”, I read on another review of this book and that is exactly what…” <-end quote
Rather rich considering recent events dontcha think?
Mr Hawsquill turns out to be an old profile of Ms Whelans with just a name change – remember you need to give your financial details when you open an Amazon account and if you only have two ways of payment then you can only have two accounts and so on.Further more Mr Hawsquill gives a website, which when you go to it is a blog which has been closed down…
Recent chats with certain people have lead me to chase down a few things and it would seem that Ms Whelan has the habit of using  out of date products to recycle in her game of life – old blogs and websites which have have not been updated for a while (years) are utilised by her. Parts of them appear in her books, or names (yes Identities) are taken and used by her as fake accounts to make it seem as if she has a fan base.
People – it’s all just her!
She talks to herself!
How very very sad!
We The Gossip Witches DONOT feel one ounce of empathy for her… she deserves every thing she gets and no doubt will – sooner rather than later!

The latest in Author Etiquette – if You don’t like the reviews, bash the reviewers!

Over the past year or so we have been entertained by a certain witch author.  Most of the history is available on the Official Chops Blog.  The material for her books is taken from other copyrighted authors books and from websites all over the web.  It is well documented on Chops. No, we don’t make things up – we don’t have to.  All the evidence stands.

What is interesting is she has now taken to bashing reviewers.  She uses the comments area for each of the reviewers to bash these reviewers in public.  Talk about looking desperate.  After all, it is the reviewers who sussed out her latest book as being a remake of her older and still plagiarized material.  She does claim she has “updated” the volume, however inspection of the available “Look Inside” feature shows that while the book may be formatted a bit better than the last volume, all that appears to be changed are the credits to this woman.  To quote one of the reviewers:

“…the introductions are exactly the same… except for some formatting. Oh, wait, it says in the first book, issued in 2011 – “It has evolved over thirty five years of experience of practical Magick which is primarily based on first hand experience.” The new version says “It has evolved over fifty years of experience of practical Magick which is primarily based on first hand experience.” You got fifteen more years of experience since last year? Now that’s magick!”

The reviewer admits that she has the first book.  However, she has only compared the content of the first book to the material available in the “Look Inside” feature of the second book.  To her credit, she only comments on what she can see.  Quite frankly, I don’t blame her.  I would not want to be accused of purchasing a book that contains mostly stolen copyrighted material from other authors.

The second reviewer took some heat as well.  After a very distasteful comment from the author, the reviewer writes some passages from the book, along with citing the sources – a book by Eileen Holland, a Llewellyn publication that is still under copyright.

The author replies:

“sites included and cited during a new witches journey incude The Wicca Handbook by Eileen Holland, Aleister Crowley: Wicca for the Rest of Us, Aleister Crowley The Book of the Law.
13 Goals of a Witch by Scott Cunningham, Wicca for the Solitary Practitioner by Scott Cunningham
“The Inner Temple of Witchcraft” by Christopher Penczac, The 13 Wiccan Principles Council of American Witches, in April and several other recognised witches”

Please pardon the spelling issues and formatting.  That is copied and pasted directly from the woman’s public comment.  Yes, I can quote public content without copyright issues, as it is “public” and she is a “well known” author.

The fact that the author has copied entire paragraphs, and/or complete works of these authors, all of which are still under copyright by said authors and/or publishers, does not seem to sink into her head.  According to American Copyright laws, you need permissions from the publisher to include actual material from said works.  And knowing the Llewellyn Publisher and their recent work on behalf of some of their authors regarding a website offering their books as give aways, I am sure the permissions for the material in question has not been asked for, nor given.

 Click on the image to enlarge it.

By the way, I have to say, I feel sorry for her proofreader.  If this is how this author writes, her proofreader must have a really tough job.

And on the other hand, apparently she is splitting copyright hairs by calling her book a “guidebook” now, so she can get around the copyright violations.  Interesting; did her solicitor advise her to do this?

She has a string of reviews that point out her book as being less than spectacular.  These reviewers point out pretty much the same thing.  It is a rehash of her other book, seems she has yet again changed her name, and the title and the cover.  I say yet again, because it seems this book, and the author, have gone through some interesting name changes and titles over the past couple of years.  But that is another blog posting, most of which can be found on the Official Chops Blog.  But, to keep your attention – look for another post to our blog here to see who is really who – certain evidence has come to the surface – stay tuned!

But back to the reviewers.  Reading the postings by the author, she seems to be throwing out whatever she can to cover her arse.  She accuses the reviewers of all being the same person!  Well, interesting, because a second poster appears in the comments.  And what she says is even more interesting.

Remember this name:  Lillane “Devlin” – it becomes very clear shortly who this person is.  But that is not my story.  What is interesting is what she says.  The first reviewer posts the following:

“You seem to be fond of taking reviews from the Irish Times and using them to promote your own work. I know they are going to be rather upset at that. After all, their reviews are copyrighted as well. Yes, we found the book review you cut and pasted from for the review on your book. Sad, you can’t even write your own reviews.”

And Ms. Lillane replies:

“Yes chops is guilty of putting up a fake review only to even the balance”

If our readers look back a few weeks earlier, there was a “fake chops” page on WordPress, in which people were insulted, harassed and slandered.  WordPress finally took the pages down.  This is evident by the post given by Ms. Lillane with links to a page that WordPress posted stating that said blog was removed for violations of WordPress terms and service.  Talk about self-incrimination.  Is this woman, then, the author of the fake chops page that was so poorly constructed and that butchered the English language?  And is she also the author of the fake reviews for this author’s book?  One would think that comment suggests such!  Looking at the use of grammar and spelling, if you had been unfortunate enough to read the fake chops blog before it was removed; it is not hard to believe that these two people are one in the same!

Tisk, tisk – what has this generation come to, poor English, bad grammar, appalling spelling and ramble on sentences.

But, I digress.  Take a look for yourself, all the wonderful comments that are still left on the book site.  The author did go through this morning and take down many of her raw comments.  Rather smart of her, as her comments were less than stellar.  But more of the same still remains.  She bashes and bashes each of the reviewers, in a less than ladylike manner and, considering her name, only shows how unladylike she is.  And, to be sure, she is not what I would call a “classic example” of an author, or a so called High Priestess of a coven.  Interestingly enough, one of the reviewers mentions that as well.  Where is her coven again?  Seems no one in that area has ever heard of her or her coven.  Well, the answer to that is coming up as well.  Much more has been discovered – so stay tuned!  – Clotho

Dig dig digging!

TGW has some hot gossip for you this weekend!

It’s so good that she can’t keep it to herself!

I don’t want to spoil it but I do want to grab your interest!

Lets say that TGW has come across something that is so crazy that we just have to share 😉

TGW and a few others have been real busy like over the last few evenings following a crazy asshat’s trail and finally nailed the coffin lid shut and the hammer is about to fall!

Wrong!

So we have been noticed – seems we’ve hit a nerve…

Hardly surprising considering the information we’ve found about this person who hails from a very emerald island betwixt the Atlantic Ocean and the Irish Sea.

The next thing you know someone will be posting supposed proof (does she have any?) that TGW is either or all of the names on her hate list!

Ghetto Wicca?

Ghetto Stalker more like!

Which Witch.com

So, which “un-named” witch, with a plagiarized book is getting ready to make a comeback with a new persona for the New Year?

Recent weeks has found her busy creating a new blog to dis all the folks who have pointed out her indiscretion, calling herself Chops, Bustin Chops or Jo Shenga and using poor English, bad spelling, incoherent ramblings and trying desperately (and unsuccessfully I may add) to make herself heard and doing a major fail.

She has, however, become a joke within the community, as she has attempted and failed to post her ramblings about the web and no one has really noticed.

TGW will not so much as mention her site, least she attract some attention, which she desperately craves but which it appears she has been denied.

TGW firmly believes in not feeding trolls. But has included a link (here) to the FB page were all posts (which advertise her new blog posts) are via twitter – TGW can only speculate that FB, in it’s wisdom, has banned the arse offa her IP!

However, be it known that if you do find the site, it is NOT nor has it ever been the real Bustin’ Chops Blog – that can be found here ->

Seems part of her recent scam is to say she was the former Bustin’ Chops but has since repented and reformed. She constantly calls herself Jo. TGW has figured out it is one of the sox named Emma Hummingbird.

But the real Bustin’ Chops Blog is alive and well and taking a well-deserved holiday. If the need arises, Chops will be back I am sure, to take on the challenge of proving plagiarism with concrete proof.

Most of her communications, both in her blog and on FB appear to be from a mobile source, indicating that either she does not have access to a computer or she has been banned from FB by IP. Tisk, tisk.

She has also been blaming her sox for much of what she has done – making it seem that the sox were the so called “Goblin” and have attempted to destroy her on-line coven. It appears more like she is trying to cover her past mistakes and get rid of her old sox while knitting new ones.

New sox and new sites have appeared, as per her usual. They are attempting to reorganize her following, they being her 6 major accomplices who are all family related. She is hoping no one has noticed…  😉

As a real witch, I can foretell that this attempt will be as unsuccessful as her past attempts. The fact that she never changes her books will always leave a trail of breadcrumbs to follow. And that she seems to be so completely unstable makes her easy to spot. One has to wonder just how her multiple sox personalities are related to her real mental condition. TGW would like to address this concern by suggesting she seek professional help.

She has pulled three too many scams that were quickly discovered by the pagan community. It has become a running joke within the pagan community.

What is she going to try next?

How will she try to cover her past this time?

We know her next plan is already in play but are waiting to see how much of a joke it becomes within the pagan community, because it is for certain that this party can quickly kill itself with stupidity before they even get out of the gate. It is worth the laughs it will get to see how far she will try to play it before it eventually kills itself, as her last attempt has done.

Why do these people seek to become the laughing stock of the pagan community?

There is nothing like watching a situation implode on itself. And this serves to educate the community on how scammers should not try to fool the pagan community.

The pagan community is not stupid. Don’t think that for a minute.

Well, let’s see how far the scam will travel this time. Being as how she has already done a fail in the Christian community, and is falling flat on her face in the pagan community, it should be interesting to see if she and her pack go through with it this time or if they decide to wander off to another type of community and try to scam them there. I suggest that they give up trying to be con artists, as they fail miserably at it. Try getting a real job.

You might be better off. 🙂

Mrs.B’s problem.

We all know and love Mrs.B, whether it’s for her excellent blog or her fight against the Christian hypocrisy, earlier this year; but that’s old news… what is hot, hot as coals as it can be, is the continued edition of her very good self into a matter that really, really, does not really, involve her!

TGW has it, that a certain rambling idiot insists in dragging the poor Mrs.B into what can only be called sheer madness; a certain type of insanity that frankly leaves even this Witch, so used to the gossip of the internet, speechless…

Mrs.B has tried repeatedly to ask, nicely, as she does do, for her involvement to be removed:

Kris Bradley

Despite your email that says my information was “retracted” from your blog, both my name and the link to my blog are still included in this post: http://shenga.wordpress.com/2011/12/18/if-the-shoe-fits-wear-it-amberlady-and-gang-revolting-schemes-busted/

Once again, this post is NOT about who you’ve stated it is about, and I would appreciate my name and information REMOVED from your blog. An actual retraction, in which you state your mistake and that the information was actually untrue would be quite nice as well.”

:/

 

As one such ‘reader’ a Steph Webweaver say’s:

“well this behavior is getting boring…

The TGW has to investigate as to why… watch this space!

People for the Un-Ethical Treatment of Asshats (love it!)

Does one *have* to have one of those Blogroll thingies?

I read quite a few Blogs but really, is it worth adding them here, I ask myself?

Up until now, the answer has been no – but then I found this:

Dueces Ninjas and the New Ghetto Wicca

I’ve met a few like this; FB’s full of them!

So LadyLaLa (love the name darling!) you’re Blog is going on my Blogroll thingie! 🙂

Christian Wicca – REALLY!!??

Oh my, hot gossip this one – let me ask you a question … did you know?

WAAAAT! I hear you say… well let me tell ya, it’s true, seems the tomtom drums did not lie this time… Christian Wicca actually does exsist… one example includes the words buy me!

http://www.christianwicca.org/

I mean REALLY?????

Made me laugh so hard a little wee came out… 😉

But then my brain engaged and I thought how? How does a Wicca, who’s path is one of religious worship of the Goddess and not of the Son of God actually become a Christian Wiccan… it’s not possible!

So that’s the glorious hot gossip for today Witchy-poos! Bitch about it all you can; to me it just aint worth bothering with… but I just might gossip about it next time I’m in Church 😉
