This is a remark on another currently infamous thread which I refuse to post on any more because it then gets, in a back handed way, my support:
The Iraqi Information Ministe...errr..Marion has already tried to put her spin on things, but it's too late.
These people give me the creeps. I wish though to look them in the eye and tell them that. It's breathtaking to me that they could ever think I would listen to them when they make such gutter-inspired remarks as the one above. (Come on- equating some worker from Burning man to the Iraqi Information Minister -the guy in charge of covering up that the Kurds were gassed? Is that really how they think? )
How can the Reno Gazette Reporter even give these people the time of day? Alas, perhaps our enthusiastic response probably helped indirectly.
We were, after all, a little test bed and we gave them exactly the attention they wanted -me included- so we were a perfect little case study-a little proof of concept that they could stir something up) I'm sure that the reporter was pointed to our threads as background even though they werent cited in the final article. I think I should refrain from posting on those threads as it just acknowledges some legitmiacy to that Neon club's efforts to paint itself as an environmental organization .
My other wish is that people who are intending to respond to the Reno Gazette piece contact the Reno Gazette reporter directly and write proper, level headed-even tempered- refutations point by point - in hard copy, sending pictures posted from the neon site etc (I know you all have screen shots) and other things surfaced about these so-called environmentalists, AND that they also point out that statements like those above are the kind of rhetoric that members of this so called 'organization' use to describe their opponents. I hope the Reno Gazette is urged to consider their sources of info.
I often heard the sorrel nag (who always loved me) crying out, ..."Take care of thyself, gentle Yahoo."
