Stop letting abuse continue under the disguise of freedom of speech.

The Goodreads website has become a playground for trolls and bullies, because Goodreads will not step in and do anything about it. This had led to reviewers being abused by authors, authors being abused by random people, and in the end EVERYONE gets hurt.
Impose standards of behaviour on your members, Goodreads - otherwise, you're going to start losing them. It's not hard, and it doesn't impinge on freedom of speech. They're few, and they're simple:
- No personal attacks.
- No threats of violence, sexual or physical.
- No disclosure of personal information without the person's consent.
It's time to tell Goodreads that it's NOT ALRIGHT for people to end up angry and scared because they can't use the website as it was intended without a hoard of haters making them afraid for their lives! Goodreads is a business, and a business can lose its hard-earned customers if it doesn't protect them in some way.
Goodreads, if you want to keep us, then listen to our voices.
Amazon, your investment is out of control, and if you don't fix it then it's going to hurt your reputation.
