Talk about it
Voice your opinion to make Buffalo a better place. Keep it civil or you'll be booted
This is the "TOS" on the opening page of SUWNY blog. Has the mission changed? The prevailing tone now is "partyUpWNY" . . . or "Personal-Attack WNY" . . . or "Friends&FamilyWNY"
My efforts to promote civic dialogue about important Bflo issues have repeatedly been sabotagued by a handfull of heavy posters who routinely bully those they dislike.
A dramatic example is "BigPoppaPuff", a repeatedly-announced "close friend" of Roberto Quintana, the dirtiest cop-councilman I have met, who I helped push out of office (after initially campaigning for him to be my councilman & first Hispanic elected offcial in Bflo) upon discovering how deeply corrupt he & his "crime family" is.
I had repeatedly asked "BPP" to stop trolling serious posts, urging him to stick to 'fun&games' posts, which he clearly preferred. When he refused, I googled his "anonymous name", distressed to see his public statement on a cigar smokers blog, from which he had been banned, that he had early onset alzheimers.
I then PM'ed his Harlem cop son (on SUWNY soley to "play" with his father) that something had to be done about his father's destructive posts, perhaps related to his tragic illness. I got no response from "Harlem" as destructive posts continued.
Now "Harlem" is demanding an apology for referring him to a post his father made for the entire world to see.
Am I to apologize for trying to keep an important resource to "make Buffalo a better place" from sinking into another destructive & embarassing black mark on Bflo? The Bflo News just focused how destructive local blogs, particularly focusing on SUWNY, can be.
Or has the mission of SUWNY changed?
Is there anybody left on SUWNY who wants "to make Buffalo a better place"?
I know Michele Johnson, my longtime ally in fighting an epidemic of Bflo housing scams, is one such person . . . who else?
