The FPR new comment system encountered its first flock of Seagulls.
They flapped in, squawked, flapped about and crapped all over, until the site shut down comments on Chris Welch's staffing selection.

Oddly enough, the same species of seagull that contends that anonymous comments shouldn't have a forum seem to have no problem posting barrages of anonymized comments using what they think are clever screen names.

We've had a few new sign-ups this week that mirror a few of the names popping up in the FPR comments. Despite using aliased email addresses from disposable accounts, they'll get their opportunity to post here until they abuse the privilege.

Is that edict policy about village employees/internet use still in effect? Does that mean that all of the postings were approved by MATC?

Yeah, but it was fun while it lasted. Stupid people don't get that they're being stupid. 

Btw, "anonymized comments"? You getting all uppity on us, Watcher?
Don' make me get out my dict'nary now.

over 1/3rd of the comments were posted from one (1), One! did ya hear me, ONE! IP address. and they were the truly nasty ones.
yeah, yeah, you guys are hardened cynics/realists and this is everyday news (it's not), and i'm flabbergasted...

do you think someone was paid to do this or was the destruction/deception a freebie from 'my argument sucks so lets cheat/rig the game?'

Maybe it's just giving another questionable resume' a second chance? Compensation comes in many forms. When you operate on an inside/outside premise, some people will do just about anything to be on the inside.

Kool-aid could be involved?

It's not about making a coherent, reasoned, informed, detailed argument, addressing issues and refuting criticism with facts.
It's about shooting down and shouting down opposition, muddying up opponents' reputations and generally making dialogue so unpleasant the average person opts out in disgust.
And always, always painting the other side as the ones who started the nastiness. 
What you do is repeat again and again the canard that the other guys are wrong, uninformed, don't know what they're talking about, but never, not once offer actual facts in opposition. 
They don't for one simple reason- they can't. The facts don't support them.
The Proviso Township, Forest Park-Melrose Park ethos doesn't value persuasion, it values coercion. They offer only reward or punishment, not overarching values.

They must have taken a page out of your play book, JtF.

Guess, you just don't believe in 2nd chances:)

Once again, the specific versus the generalized.

Tell that to Mike Murphy and his family, logic. He's banned from ever serving as a cop again. No second chance. Just "go find another line of work." Is that unfair? Because he agreed to it in his plea agreement. Didn't fight it.
