That's awful. I just reported it. I suggest others do the same. What a piece of shiitake.

The FB group is now closed. The hashtag use has increased by 25% overnight though.

Wow. I don't even know what to say about this except I feel so bad for her.

This is so beyond ugly and I hope if VegNews ever re-emerges (preferably, for the better) it sheds the entire name.

They closed it, deleted all of the comments, and then re-opened it with this:

"Due to personal attacks on VegNews employees and their families this support group will no longer accept comments." o rly.

I don't think this is going the way they planned. I guess they thought most of the subscribers were ignorant to the situation and would just be so upset at not getting what they paid for that they'd call every single number and throw a fit.

Also, Joe originally posted Colleen's home phone number, but after complaints changed it to a work number. But you could still see her home number in the edits since that's a facebook feature.

I just wrote Joe a facebook message saying that I don't support his behavior. He wrote back with some BS within 2 minutes. Clearly the guy is out there working hard for the animals and not just being a miserable troll.

I didn't see Colleen's information because I saw it too late but the picture alone and the audacity of the group angered me. The photo is akin to human rights photos.

Ha - Joe sent me the link to the petition. I replied tersely saying that I would not be signing, and he messaged me back (again within two minutes) demanding that I explain to him why I wouldn't sign.

Way to run a business, there, guy.

So he sent you the petition AFTER you sent him a message telling him how displeased you are with his behavior?

I have high hopes that this little stunt is going to screw him in court.

Me three.
Everything about his behavior is SO WRONG.
Meanwhile, Colleen seems to be laying low, keeping private things private - as you do.
I want to send her so much support through the ether.
and I want to kick Joe in the asparagus through the ether.

Just when I think he's reached the lowest of the low, Joe bullheadedly digs deeper. It's astounding.

It doesn't look like you can cancel your subscription online. . .

Sigged.


This guy is such a piece of shiitake. I feel such sorrow for Colleen that his immature antics are causing her to lose professional face and the publication into which she and so many others have poured countless years of their lives. This is ugly and must be awful for her but he is only making himself look bad, and when this ugliness is over, she will be the one to come out with a clear conscience.

If you're one of the many people who have been trying to get a refund for a subscription, and you paid for it with a credit card, you can dispute the charges with you credit card company and they'll go after VN.

So i'm confused, because they posted this BS on the main VegNews facebook page, but in a post right before that someone referenced Colleen in a positive way. So did they just jack the facebook page from them too. or do they both have access?

Luckily, most of the comments are 'this is petty, you are a crasshole, leave us out of this' and so on. Many people are angry at the revelation that Joe knew months ago that they wouldn't be making another issue until now, but kept taking subscriptions. Someone pointed out that this is (could be?) mail fraud, another person suggested everyone dispute the subscription charge with their credit card company.

I don't care who's right or wrong in this very specific instance of releasing the issue, VegNews cannot recover from this. I hope they liquidate, and Colleen takes her half and starts a new magazine.

Is there anything left to liquidate? Isn't that part of the problem?

I don't know! Basically, I hope he gets forked and Colleen can somehow start over.
