Lewis Slams Anons

Our very own Steve Lewis takes a shot at anonymous bloggers and commentors in today's Eureka Reporter. I still have to wonder, as I've mentioned before, just how many people visit blogs or are even aware of what they are.

Hey, Steven actually wrote somthing I agree with! He even managed to (barely) resist the temptation to blame only those who are on the opposite side from him on whatever issue. Good job, Steven! I really mean that, btw.

Name-calling and verbal abuse comes from anons on all sides of the social and political debate, and is not unique to any ideology.

(Of course I recognize the irony in posting this anonymously, but I am not being abusive!)

It's a lot like driving a car- you can do and say things to strangers that wouldn't be possible face to face. It is what it is, and I see no reason to change it. It's easy enough to disregard the kooks.

Who IS Humboldt Resident?? At first I thought it was Steve due to all the anti-zionist stuff. However, its not because HR makes Steve look downright Ghandiesque.

I ask again. Who is Humboldt Resident??

Oh yeah, and who's this Heraldo person?

Hey Sloth, where is Captain Chunk?

 
At 12:18 PM, Blogger Nick Bravo said...

I'll post this here because no one ever goes to HR's blog. Thanx to Fred for the forum.

HR, if I am as emotionally disturbed as you say then how disturbed are you for continually attacking me and my character? Seems to me that if you were trully the warm hearted, compassionate, enlightened liberal that you claim to be you would be trying to reason with me and encourage me rather than continuously tear me down.

Nick "SLOTH" Bravo: HAY Youuuu MUSLIIIMMS!!

Anon 12:18. I'm not dumb enough to go fight some dude I never met in a seedy bar late at night.

BACK ON TOPIC!

I agree with steve. The minute people meet face to face the civility is a whole lot deeper, more honest, and more meaningful. When people can type out anything under the cover of darkness it does indeed resemble hooligans up to no good.

 
At 12:22 PM, Anonymous Anonymous said...

And the topic is you ugly demented face Sloth

 
At 12:24 PM, Blogger Nick Bravo said...

No the topic is "Lewis slams anon".

Please work on your reading comprehension skills.

P.S. I'm not taking your bait.

Bye bye now!
Love you longtime!

*YAWN*

Anon 12:26-28. Untill you can say those words to my face you will forever remain a coward in my mind.

Bye bye now!
Love you long time!

I told you where and when you and I can have our showdown Sloth. I am still waiting, you are still making excuses. I know you are afraid to show your face in an establishment with horny women, but don't you want to know who I am?

HR or Humboldt Resident is a sad example of ....... a mis-guided activist? He too blasts the anonymous blogger but what the heck is he? And I'm not comparing him to Steve Lewis.

HR, and his "What's happening" blog is nothing more than him linking to other extremist activist web sites. He does not have an original thought or opinion. If he responds it is usually just very immature rant.

The HR's main theme is 911 was a right wing conpsiracy, jews are evil, Israel is evil, and all U.S. military personnel are murderers and worse.

I think many anonymous bloggers post anonymously to say anything about anyone and be insulting but many others also remain anonymous because of their job or who they are and don't insult anyone and at times even post inside news that probably would never be posted if their name was attached.

Buhne Tribune has not been posting lately. Now that we know who that is I wondered what has happened. Does Eureka want him to stop?? I don't think he posted any "insider knowledge" re City of Eureka but may have gotten good insider tips as at times he was ahead of the newspapers in posting something.

 
At 3:15 PM, Anonymous Anonymous said...

That a newspaper finds opinion pieces about anonymity online in this day and age says a lot about the dinosaurs in charge over there. This is so 1995.

 
At 5:36 PM, Anonymous Anonymous said...

Steve Lewis has been grinding this same old ax for a long time. But the truth is that he has been posting anonymously quite a lot and is the master of a double standard regarding this issue and others. But, as long as he can find someone else to point and shout at he will feel comfortable living with his own short comings, I suppose.

 
At 6:39 PM, Blogger Fred said...

I have no idea what you're talking about, 5:36.

I suspect, as usual, you're upset that someone's saying something you don't agree with, or don't want to hear.

 
At 6:40 PM, Anonymous Steve Lewis said...

Anon, you wouldn't know truth if it bit you. I post with my name visible because I believe we have a right to know who we are dealing with, especially those who are using blog anonymity to carry on libelous attacks that would otherwise land the anonymous liar in court in short order.

 
At 6:57 PM, Anonymous Anonymous said...

That's a red herring Steve. If someone libels you "anonymously" on this blog, you could through the court system have a very good chance of identifying the individual. So libel isn't an issue with anonymity.

That's what ticks me off most... people who go online and them scream that the online world should change to meet their own sensibilities. If you want identification, then start your own forum and require people to visit you in person with a legal ID. Don't complain that the rest of the world is wrong and you are right and everyone should lower themselves to satiate your personal curiosity.

 
At 7:47 PM, Anonymous Anonymous said...

Steve Lewis, I know the truth, so you go ahead and bite me. Fred, as usual, you're about half right. You can apply the second sentence of your 6:39 comment to yourself.

 
At 9:54 PM, Anonymous Humboldt resident said...

"HR, if I am as emotionally disturbed as you say then how disturbed are you for continually attacking me and my character?"

You're such a twisted fraud, Nick Bravo. I don't "continually attack" you and your character, as if I'm the aggressor and you're just defending yourself. It is YOU who keep coming to my blog and attacking me, not the other way around. If you don't like what I say, then stop coming to my blog.

Don't you even care that people can check up on your lies?

You come to my blog and leave your creepy, psychopathic comments anonymously or under your own name, such as your jokes about shooting children, and I respond and criticise your sickness.

Under your own name on this blog and others you pretend to be so reasonable and innocent. You're anything but. You're a psychopath. For years you've anonymously left all kinds of nasty, demented comments all over the blogs. Sometimes you even use your own name.

Your "character" is deeply sick, so I tell you the truth about it. Sorry you can't handle it.

"Seems to me that if you were trully the warm hearted, compassionate, enlightened liberal that you claim to be..."

You're a liar. I have never made any such claim anywhere.

"...you would be trying to reason with me and encourage me rather than continuously tear me down."

I HAVE tried to reason with you. It's impossible. Nick Bravo is definitely not interested in reason! You're just a demented troll who is interested only in playing games. You "LOVE fucking with" people, as you put it on my blog.

 
At 10:00 PM, Anonymous Humboldt resident said...

"HR or Humboldt Resident is a sad example of ....... a mis-guided activist? He too blasts the anonymous blogger..."

Your comment is full of lies, 1:41. I don't blast anonymous bloggers for being anonymous, as you deceitfully imply. If I criticize anyone, named or anonymous, it's for what they say, not for being anonymous. Anonymous commenters are some of the best, and I'm all for responsible anonymity.

That definitely leaves out you and Nick Bravo, though. Like him, you're just one of the mindless trolls that visit my blog and never have anything intelligent to say. All you do is maliciously snipe, sometimes with obscene comments -- and now you're deliberately spreading lies on this blog.

"He does not have an original thought or opinion."

Not true. You keep mindlessly saying that on my blog, and I keep proving you wrong, but you're too stupid to notice. It is actually YOU who do not have an original thought or opinion, Level3.net troll, as you prove consistently in your comments on my blog.

"If he responds it is usually just very immature rant."

Another blatant lie, as anyone can see by reading my blog.

"The HR's main theme is 911 was a right wing conpsiracy, jews are evil, Israel is evil, and all U.S. military personnel are murderers and worse."

A series of dirty lies. What are you trying to do, troll, see how many lies you can fit into one comment?

Libel is slander that is published. That you feel protected by anonymity to libel people speaks volumes for the lack of ethics or intestinal fortitude of anonymous bloggers hiding behind in their electronic cloaks no different in morals from their anonymous predecessors in white sheets and hoods.

 
At 11:34 PM, Anonymous Anonymous said...

You're an anonymous blogger hiding behind in your electronic cloak.

 
At 11:52 PM, Anonymous Anonymous said...

So all anonymous bloggers are "no different in morals" from the Ku Klux Klan.

Well anonymous "Stephen," I guess you must have some white sheets and hoods in the closet.

 
At 12:04 AM, Anonymous Anonymous said...

..."bloggers hiding behind in their electronic cloaks no different in morals from their anonymous predecessors in white sheets and hoods."

That's pretty goddam high and mighty moralizing considering that you are the grand wizard troll on Heraldo's blog. I guess in some people's minds being called Ken Miller would be considered slanderous and libel if published, by either or both parties.

It's too damn bad this technology precludes a rightous tar and feathering. I guess you will have to just continue on slandering every anonymous blogger and poster you don't agree with.

 
At 7:37 AM, Anonymous Anonymous said...

Well this has turned ugly now.

 
At 9:23 AM, Anonymous Anonymous said...

turned kind of wierd. but I like the cop out "responsible anonymity"

this is just too much fun reading about the KKK and all.

 
At 10:48 AM, Blogger Stephen said...

Anons turn blogs ugly by using them like kids do empty walls in bathrooms. Many anons do add to the information flow that blogs are good for but in my experience now, unfortunately the majority of anon posters are not really here to contribute to the community's knowledge. Most anon posters are here to try to damage someone's reputation because they can get away with it and not get caught. The situation would change instantly like it did briefly for a few days when anons thought their posts could be traced back to them.

 
At 10:49 AM, Anonymous Anonymous said...

Stephen, you've already done an ample job damaging your reputation by signing your name to your posts. You don't need anyone's help.

 
At 8:43 PM, Anonymous Anonymous said...

Stephen,you are an interesting fellow. Don't agree always but you're generally on yarget. Peace.

 
At 8:56 PM, Anonymous Anonymous said...

Ya, mostly on yarget with yer witch burnin' commentary, for sure. Is that part of your knastic christian tradition?

 
At 9:24 PM, Anonymous Anonymous said...

Gnostic?

 
At 11:42 PM, Anonymous Anonymous said...

Knastic. On yarget, y'know.

"Stephen" -- YOU ARE ANONYMOUS.

Have you noticed that?

So why do you keep talking about other anonymous commenters as if you weren't one of us?

 
At 11:49 PM, Anonymous Anonymous said...

Nevertheless, I agree somewhat with your 10:48 comment. I'm not sure most anon posters are troll-like, but certainly many of them are. That is, it seems like there are many trolls, but most likely a huge number of stupid and abusive anonymous comments are from Nick Bravo.

 
At 12:17 AM, Blogger Rose said...

Anonymity is a double-edged sword. As bad as it gets, there is also great good.

 
At 1:40 AM, Anonymous Anonymous said...

Is this anonymous "stephen" -- whose profile is "not available" -- the very "Steve Lewis" who prides himself on being heroically public?

 
At 7:16 AM, Anonymous Anonymous said...

Everyone knows that.

 
At 8:22 AM, Blogger Carol said...

Although I do not always under stand you or agree with you, I will say that yu wrote an excelletn letter, Stephen. Thank you.

 
At 9:37 AM, Blogger Nick Bravo said...

Anon 11:49, I see you're wasting no time in slinging mud from the shadows.

 
At 9:59 AM, Blogger Carol said...

Sorry for my terrible spelling above - lack of rest.

Good letter, Stephen.

 
At 1:24 PM, Blogger Stephen said...

Thank you, Carol. Now if I can only get you guys to unnerstan why the communitarian alternative is the only way to really improve the quality of life for everyone here, we'd be on the same page-a united front of everyone who wants Humboldt to live up to its potential as a model for sustainable community self-support.

 
At 1:38 PM, Anonymous Anonymous said...

Unnerstood.

 
At 5:45 PM, Blogger Carol said...

yep!

 
At 7:17 PM, Anonymous Anonymous said...

Stephen if only I could get you to unnerstan what pompous windbag you are. Who wants to follow you anywhere? You're too egotistical. You're socially dysfunctional. If you are a representative of what is "communitarian" then I want no part of it.

 
At 9:34 PM, Blogger Stephen said...

Wazzamatter, anon 7:17, jealousy blues again 'cause your so unimportant and don't have any blog posting about you? Poor baby..

 
At 7:04 AM, Blogger Carol said...

Hey, Stephen, welcome to the Pompous Windbag Club! We must have our first meeting soon.

 
At 2:02 PM, Anonymous Anonymous said...

Is that the one put on by Citizens for Pompas Grass Removal?

 
At 1:32 PM, Anonymous Steve Lewis said...

I notice Eric is now debating allowing anonymous postings without screening. He claimed that I would be the one of the first to be banned on his blog if he listened to his complaints but this is a ruse for his dislike of my anti-Zionist comments. So he made it as uncomfortable as possible for me as an anti-Zionist commenter on his blog by allowing anonymous Zionists to post pure hate comments, ones that would surely get the posters hauled into court for libel if their identities were known. Such hypocrisy, but typical of your Progressive activist ethics.

 
At 10:06 PM, Anonymous Anonymous said...

Steve Lewis said... "I would be the one of the first to be banned on his blog".

One can only hope.

 
At 10:31 PM, Anonymous Anonymous said...

Are we to unnerstan that the communitarian alternative is a court room where the Honorable Steve presides?

Oh,oh! All Rise.

State your full name and approach the bench for sentencing.

 
At 10:27 AM, Anonymous Steve Lewis said...

Oh, it gets worse than that..

 
At 10:29 AM, Anonymous Steve Lewis said...

You forgot God's on my side too, so there's eternal punishment to consider..

 
At 3:06 PM, Anonymous Anonymous said...

God is on your side and Dubya's too?

 
At 3:10 PM, Anonymous Anonymous said...

I thought gnostics were in touch with the One--a sort of universal intelligence--and the One is neutral.

 
At 3:16 PM, Anonymous Stephen said...

The One is neutral? Then where's first, second and third gear? Not to mention reverse..

 
At 5:45 PM, Anonymous Anonymous said...

With Stephen.
