A little post-mortem on the whole Forest Park Turd Squid saga, which ended with the vermin behind it running off to hide and the Forest Park Review getting recognized for it's excellent investigative efforts. 

In March, 2013 I did a bit of amateur digging into the site, and darned if I didn't find something. But as I said, I'm an amateur on the web, so that's as far as it went. 

http://forestparkforums.com/forum_posts.asp?TID=4688&title=is-tom-mannix-the-fp-truth-squad

Enter the oft-malaigned Forest Park Review and its over-worked staff, aka Jean Lotus. She teamed up with the Wednesday Journal Inc. IP wizards, and they came up with a link between village commissioner Tom Mannix and the Truth Squid. 

http://www.forestparkreview.com/News/Articles/3-7-2013/Forest-Park-commissioner-linked-to-anonymous-website/

In the slithery way we've come to expect of village powers that be apologists, they denied culpability and quickly shut down the operation. Anonymous cowards do that when you shine a light on their behavior. 

As I told Lotus at the time, it's like I made a pick on the website's feeble smear attempts, and Lotus, et al rammed the ball in for the touchdown.

I couldn't be prouder of the fact the Lotus took 2nd place in the prestigious Knight Investigative award competition "for stories about Forest Park Commissioner Tom Mannix's connection to an anonymous 'dirty laundry' political blog." 

"The kind of reporting that needs to be done in the digital world," IPA judges said.

You can expect the usual anonymous carping from the semi-literate PTB apologists. It's already started. 

If I were Lotus and her colleagues at FPR, I'd just smile. I sure am.

And just remember, folks. This whole thing started because Tommy Boy Mannix and another pathetic excuse for an attack dog saw fit to try to smear a private citizen anonymously. Said private citizen who is a friend of mine. 

Now they're my hobby. And all they can do in response is bleat impotently in anonymous website posts.

I seem to recall that village employees (wouldn't our council members be considered such) signed some sort of forms that they wouldn't be out on the internet doing naughty things. Would the turd squad have fallen into that category?

They've come a long way from dropping their turgid swill in the comments on TFYATDT'S website and other obscure litter boxes. They've managed to start a Facebook group (though they deleted the bulk of their nasty rantings), several fake websites, a couple of blogs too. I guess that's evolution?

Key to it all is that they maintain their impeccable journalistic standards! Anonymously attacking anonymous postings? Check. Fact-free
ad hominem? Check. Carrying on seemingly scripted "conversations" with themselves? Check. Sending threads/topics/comments careening into pig-wallowing slop? Check!

You know they have a new turd squid somewhere. No way they can keep that much guano to themselves. They need to share! It's only a matter of time before it surfaces again.

I just hope they get the widest possible audience for their excrement and that their audience recognizes it for the truly demented, arrogant, nasty crap that it is. Their TRUE colors!

Watcher, probably not, as a lot of their followers are also Fox news lovers as well. Therefore, they believe rumor and innuendo!

To translate from the mayor's researched comment, he's accusing his critics of engaging in "a large or excessive amount of allusive or oblique remarks or hints, typically suggestive or disparaging ones." 

Don't know about the "large or excessive" part, but the "allusive or oblique" part is nonsense. The numerous criticisms of Tony Calderone, while often disparaging, have been quite direct and detailed, not allusive. But to admit that his critics are well documented means that Calderone must admit that his critics are factual and accurate. 

So instead Tony runs to the dictionary to learn a few words he didn't bother learning in high school. What he really needs to do is look up "honesty," and try utilizing the concept in his public comments and actions.
