Should I Stay or Should I Go?

Original thread was located: Gary claimed he'd leave this up for 2 days. It lasted a little over 16 hours. Another lie eh, Gary?

I do apologize in advance. I was not online to screen capture, so these are ones that have been sent to me. They are not complete captures. They focus primarily on the comments for Gary to leave Facebook.

 Dimwits, fools, spiteful. Such supportive people.
 Notice, he keeps poking at the drama.
 Try it. Google A4cwsn scam. You will be amazed.
 Dr. Gary? What is he telling people now?
 Cindy gives the most unbiased comment of the evening. It's great advice Gary really should heed. We know he won't.

 Brett is a long time A4 member. He is now leaving because of the drama and unprofessionalism of Gary. So very sad.
More poking by Gary. Plus, one of his admin, Shay, posts. Shay, he invited anyone to post on this. Maybe you should take it up with Gary if you don't want him doing that.

 Exactly Joellen. If Gary is indeed honest as he claims, it shouldn't be an issue to provide documentation. He refuses. Judith, the supporters do not outweigh the haters. There are about 15 or 20 active people on A4. Mostly you and your friends talking to each other, ignoring everyone else, and spamming Gary's marketing.

I left the poster's name in purple full because she is the writer and creator of Penelope the Purple Pirate. She has been informed of Gary's actions and continue to look the other way. This is not someone who I feel people should support.

Needy SN kids? His money? Both wrong. It might have started out as needy SN kids. Now? The only requirement is to kiss his arse. You don't need to have a SN child. You don't need to have a child period. Nor work with any. You just have to kiss his arse. As for it being his money? It's not. Look up the fundraising done sometime.

This is where my screencaps of this thread end. The post was deleted shortly after.

You are not worthy

This post was located at: Like most all of Gary's inflammatory posts, it has been deleted.

I do not know if I have all of the comments for this thread. I was not online at the time. This is a mishmash of several people's screen captures. The majority of the content of this thread is based around Gary refusing to share a link to a fundraiser for a child after he told the mother he would.

 You can read about the claim that he never left here. A4cwsn survivor blog

 $2000 was more than he could support through the community? He raised that amount in January in 24 hours for a computer for his graphic designer.
Back to the thread:

 You don't entertain anyone's questions. You ignore them. Delete them. Hide them.

From what I understand, this post was deleted at this point. He then posted another thread that will be posted in another blog post.

Yet another one bites the dust

Tonight, a very long time supporter of A4 went out with fireworks. Gary is claiming to be in the UK right now and has left A4 under the care of admin. Only a chosen select few know the identity of these admin. This is an oddity because A4 has always been upfront about who is acting as admin. I will show you her farewell post, then a post from a few days ago leading up to it. Finally, a post showing the true nature of some of his continuing biggest supporters. (Remember, Lynette just left after 2+ years, you will too in the end.) Lynette was banned and removed from A4. Her 2+ years of friendship and support now cease to exist. That is how disposable you are to Gary.

 This is the only post screencap I have of the situation that led to Lynette's choice to leave A4. From what I gather, she merely asked who was in charge while he was gone. This could have been answered by any one of Lynette's "friends" through a PM. It seems she was chastised, bullied, and ridiculed instead.

This is the post from a current supporter. Make sure you read this. This person ADMITS in black and white that Gary does indeed use people's profiles to spy on members and developers. If this doesn't open your eyes, I don't know what will!

Another one bites the dust

Before I begin, I want to reach out to you Kerri. You have a place for support. Where hundreds of people have all been treated the way you were. No one has ulterior motives there. No one is catty or two-faced. I wish you the best Kerri. I hope that you can hold your head high after this. You opened your eyes. Welcome to the light.

Tonight, a loyal supporter of A4, the one I posted about in Congrats? Maybe was the target of Gary's wrath and indifference. She tried for the last several day to still be a member of A4. Tonight, it all came to head over Gary's refusal to simply share a post. Something he does for others.

The original post can be found here: Since Kerri was banned, her comments are now gone. At the time of this writing, his comments and the others' comments remained.

Kerri's posts are all marked with a red dot. This continues throughout all screencaps in this post.

Orange: This is part of an earlier conversation about trying to contact Oprah to get an A4 member an iPad because of how often he talks about Oprah.

This is what Kerri wanted Gary to share. It is linked on my Facebook page. Please take the few minutes and watch this video about this sweet little boy. They take another minute or two and pray for him.
Orange: Happy nice community? Remember her?

Green: You. How can you be that obtuse?

Blue: She didn't feel this way until Gary refused to post a simple prayer request for a special needs boy who's currently in the ICU. His mother is a member of A4.

Typical Gary. Dismiss it. He knows what's going on. Don't think for a minute he doesn't.
Um... first comment. So chilling. Someone wanted to hang her? Wow.

Orange: Two faced people Kerri. A4 is full of them, especially if they are the top people on there. It's something you had to learn the hard way, like so many others did.

Blue: Typical excuse. He never has anything, even though it's posted on his own page several times.

Green: Kerri, you are wrong on this. Jenna is there. Jenna has taken part in the past. Jenna is not sweet. Don't deceive yourself.
Orange: Judith Top Fan again. Earning that iPad. Kerri is not off her rocker. People that see the light and truth about Gary are not crazy.

Green: They are. The Survivors Facebook Page will be there for you when you are ready. Every person on there has been victimized by Gary in their own way. Even those who were once against each other have come together to revel in their statements against Gary. It is truly support.

Congrats? Maybe.

This started off as a post of one member congratulating another member. It soon turns into Gary bullying a mother because she supported a commenter he decided to attack. So very sad to read.

Original post was found here:  Like all posts where Gary is misbehaving, it's now gone.

Yes. Tiffany won an iPad from A4. She has now won an iPad from a different site. While I congratulate her on her win, some people are upset about it. This is because they believe that she should have let someone without a device at all win. Ethics and morals means different things to different people.

That being said, the page she won from is owned buy an advertising partner of A4, and administrated by a member of A4. One of Gary's comments later in this thread will throw this whole situation into Fishville. (It's fishy.)
Red: See what I mean? If that isn't a fishy comment about it, I don't know what is.

Yellow: It doesn't matter. Gary doesn't follow his own rules for his contests anyway. It's a giant popularity contest. If Gary doesn't like you, you won't win. If his admin don't like you, you won't win. If Gary sees you've liked a competing page, you won't win. If the wind blows east, instead of west, you won't win. Nothing is fair about Gary's contests.

Orange: Right again. AppAbled, SmartAppsForKids, Tech in (sp) Ed, and many more. What do they have in common? They share each other's contests. Gary's A4 is a special breed. You have to share his contest like a child in a sweatshop, but you aren't allowed to share other contests. He'll never share them either.

Blue/Orange: Make up your mind Gary. In the previous comment you tagged her to tell her how to get her friends to help her, in the next you accuse her of being all over the Survivor page. (She commented, like, twice on there prior to this night).

Purple: This is the victim of the Gary bashing. It's heart breaking. She doesn't pay attention to the drama that surrounds Gary. So, she's honestly sticking up for a valiant supporter of A4. She will be virtually crucified for it.
Red: You are correct. The majority of the community do good things. Unfortunately, the crap will never stop. Gary thrives on drama.

Purple: One of his newest faithful supporters. She desperately wants an iPad for her daughter, so she's now joining the virtual lynch mob. Classy, right? Oh, as to her being spammed. She's posting on every Facebook page she can about A4's app of the month. It stands to reason that a lot of people don't want to see it every single day on a bunch of unrelated pages. Though I admit right here, I've starting spamming you simply because you are whining about it constantly.

Green: Let's! Are you a legit place?  Oh my!

Blue: Kerri, it doesn't matter.The only people that will ever win on A4 are those Gary thinks deserve it. Whether they have an iPad, or 3, already. Or are in need. Or actually have a child, let alone a special needs child. It doesn't matter. His contests are popularity contests, not fair ones.

Gary, her issue is that you are attacking her for supporting a member of A4. It's sick.
Orange: Um. Who cares? No one has said that iPads aren't given out. The issues are: A) Your lack of transparency with donated funds. B) You're complete unprofessional behavior.

Blue: Kerri, there is no such thing as auto-blocking. He made it up as an excuse for why he banned you the first time.

Purple: No, it's not. You are supposed to, as a group, kiss his behind. He really could care less if you get along with anyone else.
Red: Make sure you read that carefully. Gary is telling her flat out that whatever she decides, she's done with A4. That he truly does not care one way or another if she stays or if she goes. Remember, she has done NOTHING against him.
Orange: See. Regardless of what she decides, his mind is already made up. She will NEVER be eligible for anything he ever gives away. At this point, she's been put onto his blacklist. He'll let her stay on A4 (for the time being), but she'll never ever be a part of the page. The top fans will shun her. Gary will be mean to her, or ignore her. It will be like she doesn't exist.

Green: He is being wrong to you. There is no doubt of that. Gary will not block people before they show proof of his lies. He enjoys the drama. NOTE: No one should ever be afraid of someone on the internet. He is a bully and nothing more. There is help for your child(ren) out there. You do not have to jump through all his hoops to get it.

Blue: Again. There is no such thing as auto-blocking. He lied to you.

Green: Our friend Judith again still working hard for her iPad. Tiffany does friend members of A4, maybe she just doesn't like you. Survivor members did not cause drama on this post. A member of A4 simply asked why someone would enter a contest when they already have a device, especially when so many others are waiting who have nothing. The drama was all Gary. Oh, and a little spelling lesson for you. It's naysayer.
Red: They gave their hard earned money to you, Gary. As for it being false and going nowhere, you are incorrect. It went nowhere, why is the AG continuing to investigate. If it was a baseless claim, as you say, they'd have dismissed it. They didn't. You use the community's money to support A4. What have YOU done personally and financially to help others, Gary?

Green: It wasn't getting you anywhere. I'm sorry. It's a hard knock when you realize that it doesn't matter if you follow Gary's rules, as he himself doesn't.

Purple: Top Fan Judith again! Already formed an opinion of these two women based on...? Gary's say so?

Yellow: Incorrect. It's not that simple. To use a phrase from some of the Survivors, if you were standing on a street corner and about to witness someone get hit by a bus, you wouldn't get let it happen. You'd warn them. Same goes here Gary. We are warning people that the bus (you) are barreling down on them.
Green: How is warning someone that you're an inconsiderate jerk equal to harming special needs parents? Can you let the authorities deal with it and move on? No. You have to cause drama, just like you're doing on this thread.

Purple: Twilight zone music? You cannot see that you are being a a jerk? As for saying good night. We shall see. You're goodnight is never truly good night.

Judith: You have't won, but you are sure trying to win by being an ass to anyone you can, because that's what Gary is doing.

Red: Remember this. Gary's response is just assholish.
Green: Notice, after posting good night, he HAD to come back to make sure she knew he wasn't apologizing for his rude behavior.

Orange: I had to point this one simply because it makes me laugh.

Blue: Case closed. He doesn't want to talk about it, so it's over. Sadly, Kerri is the one who will lose. You will see what I mean in my next post.
