From Stop the GR Bullies:
A GR bully is any member of Goodreads who engages in bullying behaviour.
. . . .
Note: writing an honest, critical review of a book is not considered bullying on this site. Furthermore, we believe there is a difference between an honest, critical review and a bully review. Example. A critical review: “I didn’t care for the main character. I couldn’t relate to her. She lacked character depth and emotion …” A bully review: “My dog shits better than this book! How could this horrible author write such a literary piece of shit?” See the difference?
. . . .
These bullies are under the impression that any reaction to them is about critical reviews, using the argument that they have a right to express their opinions. We are not here to fight against critical reviews. That is not what our campaign is about. It is about their bullying behaviour towards others which is becoming increasingly disturbing. We are here to expose that.

Passive Guy visits Goodreads every 12-18 months, mostly because he thinks it’s one of the worst-designed websites in existence, so he’s in no position to evaluate whether bullying behavior happens there or not.
