The Gossip Witches

A gossipy look at things! ;)

Archive for the category “LIES”

The lies just keep on comin’!

We three are up in arms about the lies Ravin Babble-on is still telling after being caught out for a multitude of copyright thefts in her books!

To say she tells blatant lies is a massive understatement!

Last night she posted this.

 

 

The website she lifted it from.

 

 

 

But Google also threw up this site ~ note the copyright notice if you will…

 

 

 

She has repeatedly lied.

We cannot stress this enough.

She lies.

 

To say we are disgusted is the understatement of the year… we are incensed!

She gives all us Witches a bad name.

This has gone beyond the realm of gossip ~ we encourage YOU to call her out!

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!

OooH! Me back!

As promised, gas-mask donned, TGW has been digging in the shite this weekend – heh wana see what I dug up?

Lets take that Amazon reviewer Siobhan Whelan who goes by the name Lilane, for a start, the one who leaves loads of reviews and comments in favour of Lady Raven Avalon and Rochelle Moore, who, lets not forget, are supposed to be her (that’s Lilane) pen-names or puppet accounts.

She’s supposed to be a copyright thief, right? So lets get that spade to some of Liane’s Amazon reviews and see if what we’ve heard and read is right or not… it didn’t take long to come up with yet more shite and confirmation that this dude is just full of it!

We like Bucky’s Big Blue Book – we’ve had it a good few years now so when we saw ole Lilane had reviewed it of course we had to take a dig.. here’s what she says:

“4.0 out of 5 stars a great addition to a reading collection, September 18, 2010

Raymond Buckland and Llewellyn thought it important to market.While some of the basic premises of Craft practice and such are great, no book, no author, no magickal tool is ever going to take the place of actual hands on practice.

Buckland has done not so much  service to Wicca and the Craft as a viable religious system but rather caused far damage and discord within the Craft in the form of drama and flailing egos as a result of the book’s claims. 

There is good information on candle magick, magickal alphabets and books of shadows, ritual set up, etc. But of course none of this means anything if the reader does not actually get up and do the work. Reading this work is not going to be enough to make you a third degree anything.”

Remember, this person has a reputation for taking others words and using them as her own AND MAKING MONEY OUT OF IT… compare (I’ve made it easy for you) the above with this below – I’m off to rest my back in readiness for more digging :/

3.0 out of 5 stars Inflated Expectations, November 2, 2009
This review is from: Buckland’s Complete Book of Witchcraft (Llewellyn’s Practical Magick) (Paperback)

This book is rather (non)affectionately referred to as “Uncle Bucky’s Big Book O’ Wicca”. For whatever reason, Raymond Buckland and Llewellyn thought it important to market a book that infers that by reading it, yes, you, too can be a Third Degree in Wicca. This claim is pretty absurd – and I have experienced little ones (teenagers) coming up to me and claiming Third Degree credentials. A five minute conversation usually will uncover just how much the self-professed “Initiate” doesn’t know. Buckland has done not so much a service to Wicca and the Craft as a viable religious system but rather caused far damage and discord within the Craft in the form of drama and flailing egos as a result of the book’s claims.

While some of the basic premises of Craft practice and such are great, no book, no author, no magickal tool is ever going to take the place of actual hands on practice. As an herbalist who has spent a lifetime in the study, there is not enough information doeseages or caveats towards health or pre-existing conditions being given in this book for those would be Witches to just start playing around with herbs. For his I would thoroughly reommend the books of Matthew Wood, in particular “The Book of Herbal Wisdom” and also James Greene’s “The Medicine-Maker’s Handbook” and other authors such as Rosemary Gladstar and Susun Weed – who herself is a very accomplished and well published herbalist and Green Witch. There are much better magical treatises on herbs such as Paul V. Beyerl’s Master Book of Herbalism”, which so thorough that it makes Buckland’s little chapter look rather incomplete if not a little absurd. Herbal work really does require oversight by knowledgable teachers in order to avoid calamity, and they are out there. Buckland should have more strongly asserted this in the book. 

There is good information on candle magick, magickal alphabets and books of shadows, ritual set up, etc. But of course none of this means anything if the reader does not actually get up and do the work. Reading this work is not going to be enough to make you a third degree anything other than a fool for buying into the idea that “faith” of any kind without hard work is dead. I give this book three stars mainly because of the misrepresentation of both what it can achieve and how compleat the herbal knowledge consists of.


Crazy Asshat!

WOW!

Well that was quick – no sooner than our posts were up and she goes and changed the goal posts, deleting the book and re-adding it again!

Left me speechless it did! :/

Not only that but she is continuing to bash the reviewers on yet another site and she’s nicked our name! :/

Guess it’s true what they’re saying… this crazy asshat doesn’t have an original idea about her!

 

Remember the 60’s?

Ah…. (puts rose tinted glasses on) the heady halcyon days of the 60’s, when flowers were worn in your hair (and someone sang about them) and the net was something your Granny wore to bed to keep the curlers in her hair!

Peace ‘n’ Love Mann… you get the pic?

So imagine TGW, suitably nostalgic, surfing thro’ Facebook and finding an old picture of a family on a camping trip – sweet memories came flooding back of long hair, wide pants, love beads, gypsy tops, the scent of patchouli oil… (always too much patchouli every where) …Joss-sticks and something the young GW didn’t yet know about, but it smelt good!

But wait… something’s not quite right here… leggin’s???? O.o

The happy memories went right out of the window as the suspicions revved up!

TGW went and dug a bit into the heap that this so called Lady has created around her fake persona – oh yes well fake and busted as many times as she’s made names up to sell her plagiarised books to the Fluffy Bunny brigade!

So, here we have a nice family picture, out on a camping trip do we?

Or is it a fashion shoot for a well known fashion house? (click through the link, scroll back and you’ll see more 60’s inspired photo’s)

A vain attempt to do what?

Lie?

Confuse?

Create a stink?

How stupid?

See that bit of writing under the pic? The bit that say’s “Copyright 2010 by Heyoka Leather.“? That means they own the picture; they paid the models and dressed them; they paid the make-up artists that made them look good; they paid the photographer to take the pic; to dress the scene and direct the models.

!THIS IS NOT YOUR FAMILY ON A CAMPING TRIP BELLADONNA COLE!

I’ve heard rumours about this one being far from the pagan leader of a coven that doesn’t exist; I’ve heard she’s actually Christian, Catholic in fact! But these are just rumours; the truth as they say, is probably far stranger than fiction – oh! Wait… SHE IS FICTION!

Don’t fall for the lies people!
