Anonymous hate posts running amok among public
servants, campaign coordinator, trial critic?
RANTS of the worst kind to hateful, local anonymous web writers, who get their jollies being bullies, spinning often
completely false or highly, highly exaggerated tales, or telling nasty rumors or sociopathic-like, venomous, horribly
unkind and irrational opinion of, or representation of a situation or individual.
For consideration, please consider the hypocrisy and realities of these anonymous sources behind these three
writers and publishers of the site,
"Masontown Renaissance," for going
too far and not realizing it.
Rants&Raves certainly understands
frustration some may have
everywhere with public servants
stealing time, playing online, misusing
public computers for non-work-related,
In fact, Rants&Raves on a few
occasions, sent about a hundred
pages of reader IP and reader traffic
logs to county commissioners
because county workers seemed to
live on this site way too often.
That much, we do understand.
RANTS, though, to the anonymous
minds behind Renaissance for
publishing absolutely crazy social
media comments from seemingly real
town folk, mixed in with some from
anonymous and, supposedly, fake
social media names and accounts in
heated, ridiculous volley debate.
At its worst, Renaissance makes it
difficult to have a solid leg to stand on
debating with racists that White Trash
is always a racially offensive term
when heard by those who do not use
Unless a town floozy and her spouse
are molesting kids, seducing animals,
raping incapacitated seniors or
persons with limited intellectual
abilities who can not say no or defend
themselves, why would any sane
person compose fake profiles to catch
the kinky couple arranging meetings
with what sounds to be anything that
walks, from a public-owned computer
on work time?
RANTS, at best, that the anonymous
blogger(s) caught a public servant
seeking online sex partners for his
wife and himself on borough work
time, but no quorum of council
members cared that the public-funded
staff or his wife used the borough
computer to coordinate their online
RANTS, at the very least, the wife -- if
her claim of defense for him is correct
that she used his police work
computer to find sexual partners for
him and her -- using a police computer
may have compromised police
evidence in some way or breached
If we call ten police forces right now,
we would expect to hear ten
resounding "No!" replies if we ask to
drop by and use the government
computer to create a sexually explicit
profile with pictures on a meat market
One in 11, however, apparently,
would appear to allow it.
ignoring all that real borough business
and for allowing this stupid, crazy
drama to continue to divide a council
RANTS, since council easily could
have had and should have had a
computer hard drive examined to
determine just how much or how little
time borough public-paid employees
spent online playing on all recreational
Then, the council needs to seriously
consider why veteran, long-time police
officers did not know what first-time
viewers of any cop tv show know -- to
check out a suspect's alibi or
statement before declaring him guilty
and jailing him nearly two years
awaiting trial without bail.
RANTS that anonymous posts on faywest.
com, since the Shellhammer acquittal
verdict, falsely reported that jurors were
intimidated or threatened by the
defendant's supporters in the courtroom.
The comments eluded to a possibility or
probability that a verdict would be
challenged and set aside due to jury
intimidation or tampering.
Meanwhile, no credible source backs this
twisted anonymous claim.
Rants&Raves so hopes that Judge
Wagner, who presided over the four-day
trial earlier this month, will insist to county
detectives that the 22.214.171.124
(HegUs mask) computer IP be pulled and
the anonymous, hateful writer be found.
No, not just found.
The guilty poster so deserves to be
brought nervous and sweating to
Wagner's court, for a friendly chat about
reality versus fiction and how concerning
the online comments are.
insult to the performance and integrity of
Wagner and all of his court staff who
monitored courtroom spectators,
witnesses and the jury.
upon the miserable, hateful soul writing
hateful anonymous online buzz that
nobody, absolutely nobody, tampered with
his jury in his court.
RAVES of hope that the judge gives the go
ahead for the order to be written, to find
the anonymous bully paying for an IP
masking service to post his or her
anonymous false comments meant with
malice to hurt the integrity of Wagner's
court and harass the former defendant and
accused, jailed for 22 months without bail
before the acquittal.
Readers here are strongly urged to copy
this column and send to the courts to beg
Wagner to pull the IP and talk to the
political sign thieves of the night and
unidentified sources that Fayette County
Commissioner Vince Vicites claims is
slurring him in alleged robo calls and
unidentified social media sites.
RANTS because his keeping a recent
audit under raps until after the election
gives him reason enough to draw
legitimate criticism from election
challengers or just the public in general
who pays his salary.
Nobody should have to take cheap,
personal jabs to try to discredit Vicites, in
While Rants&Raves has yet to locate a
single voter who actually received a robo
call slurring Vicites to learn what
supposedly was said in the recorded
phone messages, we'll take the word of
Kelly Cheripko Mercier, Vicites' Campaign
Coordinator, that unkind things are being
written, when she said online:
witnessed some of the nastiest,
most slanderous, untrue, malicious,
evil comments stated about him
both politically and personally..
Adult bullies...how pathetic.."
Though we're not quite sure what was
said or written, we'll take Mercier's word
for it when she says the unspecified
trashings that she discussed on Vicites'
commissioner campaign web page were
"some of the nastiest" she had seen or
Believe us, the recent attacks must have
been pretty darned nasty if they were
"some of the nastiest," that the
commissioner's re-election campaign
coordinator has seen, because, well, this
is a woman, who, in anonymous
newspaper reader comments of her own,
proved she or someone using her
newspaper sign in nic and
password, knows what nasty really
does mean, with comments from
someone known as jim31563,
directed directly to Commissioner Angela
Zimmerlink, last February.
a reason you always find it
necessary to verbally attack people
and try to one up them with, half the
time, inaccurate information?
"Maybe you should take up a hobby
or two (like cross stitching) in your
retirement. Maybe it will take you
out of your self-loathing, miserable
mindset. Happy Trails!"
That all said, RANTS that sign thieves
have no lives and RAVES if video really
does exist showing the theft of Vicites'
signs from private property. We so hope
someone is charged.
RANTS, though, if someone anonymous
more recently was more spiteful, more
childish and genuinely a nastier type of
anonymous bully, as was the one who
wrote the above quote eight months ago
using Vicites' Campaign Coordinator's
newspaper subscription sign in nic.
We thought that one took the cake.
