During this time registration activity on the Athertonian’s Blog has bee averaging three residents per day for the last three weeks.

> two per day are from Charles Marsala...he moves around a lot.

The blog allows Athertonians to form their own opinions which may not agree with WDM and question how they are spending taxpayer dollars.

> yes, but what about people who may not agree with Didi, Sherman Iii, and Valerie Gardner. Don't they just get kicked out?

To Yeah, but..

Hear is a recent differing opinion that was posted by a Supporter of Measure F and the Athertonians Moderators response:

Dear Fellow Residents:

The Email forwarded by chev46< incorrectly interprets the EIR. The continued fall back to scare tactics by those on the 'No' side of this issue is a travesty to civil political dialogue.

The only abuse we are finding is the uncivil way that you continually describe positions that don't suit you with phrases like "scare tactics" and "travesty to civil political dialogue." Furthermore, there are no "allegations" made by the above post, so your characterization in itself is inflammatory. We happen to consider it a service to the town's ability to weigh the truth to get access to facts that were not in conformance with the majority view, and were withheld from the public.

If you resort to insults and inappropriate characterizations, your comments will be removed.

Thank you for your understanding.

As I said, there is a threat of removal,

Where are the threats to remove the comments attacking "WMD"?

Bunch of hypocrites.

Your earlier point was don't people just get kicked out. Walter Sleeth has not been kicked out. I gave you a specific example.

If you have a specific post, put it up here and let's discuss. The post from Don Way asks the Mayor to answer questions.,

Don't miss out on the discussion!
