Well, you seem to care if Methownet locks a thread and bickered about that fact here and there. They do have a no politics policy that you don't seem to respect and questioned their value as a community BB. Did you personally contact Jeff or Maria to seek understanding?. I have, several times.SOulman wrote: ↑Wed Oct 25, 2023 6:50 pm I choose not to be bitter and to try to engage in a respectful public policy debate.
People pointed out to the MVNews publisher that the newspaper misrepresented facts in a lead story. The paper printed a clarification.
I'm OK with the result. It doesn't mean that I agree with everything printed in the newspaper.
If there is a beef with reporting in the local news, bring it up with the publisher/editor.
It appears likely that Proposition 1 will be voted down by local voters. That seems to be the objective shared in this discussion board.
If there is something else in play, please take it somewhere else. I, for one, don't care.
You took exception when you thought the FOP attacked you in a letter to the MVN editor. I didn't read it that way. You didn't take that personal issue 'somewhere else".
How is that any different than me taking exception to a news paper editor who disrespects my community in support of a political issue I oppose.
I just disagree with you about the journalistic integrity of a local newspaper that leads with an attack on community members.
Or don't you have think calling your neighbors 'paranoid" is an attack?
And I wouldn't be so sure about prop 1 failing. We shouldn't pat ourself on the back just yet. They are playing politics very well and had no problem getting 1500 signatures to get this issue to the ballot.
In other words, I'll speak out as I please, where I please and respect when you do the same.
