District Messes with Texas Bloggermom

Maybe these people read about the antics of the former solicitor in Penn Delco. Maybe they didn't read enough.

Sounds like this mom has a pretty good lawyer.

UPDATE: In Canada the whole school board got in on the action. Yuck!

Mr. Spencer,

Although I give you an "A" for your effort, I must give you an "F" for your disingenuousness.

You must know that you are comparing apples to soccer balls.

As you also must know, Penn Delco's former solicitor sued in his own personal capacity (meaning using his own money and other resources) for defamation on the theory that one or more anonymous posters falsely stated that he was a "thief." He did not sue using district money or other district resources.

As you also must know, First Amendment law clearly holds that maliciously publishing a false accusation that a person is a "thief" is not protected by the First Amendment as an opinion, but instead is actionable as a false and defamatory statement of fact.

But what strikes me the most is your hypocrisy in running to the "authorities" to report that someone has supposedly posted on this blog a comment under your name(which you have claimed in another comment under another post).

Why in your mind is that magically a crime, yet your source John Green's alleged felony ethics violation is, at the same time, as minor as a parket ticket? And why in your mind is the (petty) "theft" of your identity actionable, yet the destruction of an innocent victim's reputation not?

There are few things more distasteful in a journalist than such a blatant double standard.

The authorities? That's a joke, son.

By the way, how that's lawsuit coming? If, by chance, you know?

Why would you assume law prof is a man, you chauvinist slime? Oops, I guess I answered my own question.

Is it possible someone had a few too many, did some irresponsible posting, and is covering some tracks?

Get over that guy. I'm tired of hearing you whine about him.

Mr. Spencer,

"The authorities? That's a joke, son."

Pardon me? "Son"? From my numerous earlier comments on other posts, are you just too dense to realize that I'm a woman and proud of it? Or is that just one more cheap sexist remark? But, of course you'd respond that at least you hadn't insulted me even more by calling me "boy." Yes, Mr. Spencer, I'm proud of my heritage, too.

Truth is, you (or yet another alleged imposter) had written, "You poor pathetic fool. That was some weak, identity-stealing imitator, pretending to be Spencerblog. Authorities are investigating."

If reporting that your accusation of identity theft was under investigation is your idea of a joke, then I must tell you that I could find no crime on the books against impersonating a sexist, racist, mean-spirited blow hard with a very poor sense of humor.

You have now officially become the object of MY obsession, Mr. Spencer.

Why? Because you bring out the worst in people, Gil.

You can't help it, that's just who you are.

Jeremy and Law Prof:

Why are you anonymous? You have such strong opinions, why can't you own up to them? Are you girly man and girly girl? Now you both admit you are osbsessed with Gil, and name call cause Gil brings out the worst in you. WOW!

Whatever happened to being responsible for how you react to others? Is Gil hatred your defense?

By the way, I know Gil, don't always agree with what he says, but I do like and support the fact that he can do what he does as we have a right to free speech and expression. At least he does not tout his opinions anonymously...

Is it Spencerblog that blog that brings out the worst or the lightest mention or criticism of its former solicitor?

Let me try that again.

Is it Spencerblog that brings out the worst in people or the slightest criticism of Mark Sereni's action as Penn Delco solicitor.

November 10, 2007 at 8:48 AM 
Anonymous Jeremy19015 said...

Neither.

It is you, Gil, that brings out the worst in people.

By the way, one of the first signs of a disturbing psychosis is regularly referring to oneself in the third person, as in "Is it Spencerblog...."

It's never too late to get help.

And to the blasphemous ProChrist/ProImplement of Death, I choose to remain (somewhat) anonymous here because I, like others, do not want to become the next target of Gil's crazed attacks.

I presume that your kind, though, chooses the opposite because you want to become the object of Gil's affection. Talk about girly, man.

Jeremy:

I am blasphemous? Do you even know what that means, or is it another pithy adjective that people like you use because you have no ability to engage in a debate? You are a person who is obviously too afraid to engage in an open and honest "intellectual" debate. Instead, you hit and run. That is not very liberal of you. I thought people like you loved and were tolerant of everyone.

Gil, this is why I think people get mad at you when you bring up Penn Delco's former solicitor.

Even though you succeeded in helping to get him fired from that job, you now seem to be just looking for something new to say about him all the time, when there is nothing new to say. You're really just scraping the barrel for any excuse to mention him.

It's one thing when you go after a political leader or someone seeking a political seat. They can or should at least expect such scrutiny. But a school district's lawyer who isn't even their lawyer anymore?

My opinion is that you have some kind of personal vendetta against him and you are abusing your position as one who has access to the public to further it. You have become unnecessarily nasty, and people root for the underdog. What more do you want from him?

Also, I think a lot of PDSD residents are tired of you pushing this into the spotlight. It's over, and they have other and bigger problems to deal with.

Actually, I think it is Sereni and/or his supporters that have a personal vendetta against Spencer. I believe Sereni and/or his supporters continue to meddle, however subversively, to perpetuate the mistrust in Penn-Delco. Sereni's presence at school board meetings after he was fired is arrogant. Sereni did intimate that legal action may be taken against individual board members who supported his firing. Maybe if Sereni would leave the situation in Penn-Delco alone and move on with his career, there would be no more mention of him in relation to Penn-Delco. Many in Penn-Delco are quite aware of who's associating with whom, however covertly, and until Sereni and/or his supporters stop meddling/stirring up/trying to influence issues in Penn-Delco, I suppose he will stay in the limelight.

Dear Anonymous,

I am neither a "Sereni supporter" nor a Sereni detractor. All I can tell you about him is that he has an excellent reputation in the legal community.

But I AM a Gil Spencer detractor.

Mr. Spencer and you share the same "blame the victim" mentality.

And Mr. Spencer and you share the the same fault of trying to blame the victim so lamely.

Don't you know that it is Mr. Sereni's statutory right under the Pennsylvania Sunshine Act - a law which Mr. Spencer should cherish, not denigrate - to attend any and all Pennsylvania governmental agencies' public meetings which he so chooses?

Or don't you care?

So what is motivating me to speak out against Mr. Spencer? I, for one, will never forget (nor forgive) Mr. Spencer's labeling an African-American female attorney who had filed an EEOC-approved lawsuit for racial discrimination, in essence, "a natural-born plaintiff."

Enjoy your day.

Well then why not speak to your issue and leave Sereni out of it. BTW, as you may know, Mr. Sereni does not have an excellent reputation outside of your legal community. Although he has a 'right' to attend Penn-Delco mtgs., it is arrogant of him to do so. I do not think Sereni is a victim. He was fired by his 'employer' because they did not like the job he was doing for them.

Dear Anonymous,

There you go again.

"Mr. Sereni does not have an excellent reputation outside of your legal community," you say to me?

To which "legal community" of mine did you intend to refer? The Delaware County and surrounding counties' legal community, as I did? Or were you instead referring in a racist manner to the African-American community?

Forgive me, you probably think I'm acting too "uppity" in challenging you.

For the same reason why closed-minder fools like yourself and your dear friend Mr. Spencer must think that Rosa Parks was "arrogant" to sit in the front of the bus even though she had the God-given right to.

I will not lower myself to respond to you again. Good day, and good riddance.

However, Mr. Spencer, you will not get off so easily.

People who see bigotry in the use of my word 'your', are people who promote racism. Let me rephrase clearly: Mr. Sereni does not have a good reputation outside of THE legal community. And I guess you are 'uppity' if you think you must 'lower yourself' to respond to me and that you have some sort of upperhand in that you won't let Spencer 'get off so easily'. Good night and good luck to you too.

The irony is that while Spencer is obviously trying to ruin this guy's entire career for whatever reason, he is making him even more famous. And so is the guy who makes the negative comments about him. I would bet Sereni is the one laughing.

people if you don't see Gil for who or what he is then you are blind. He is no good and uses people to get stories. He then hides behind "sources" but reveals those sources to other "sources" to get more information. I have been on that side of his venom a while back. He is just a person who lives life and doesn't care who he hurts. Volunteering at the special olympics doesn't give you a free pass Gil. You are a horrible person and you will cost the Daily Times a nice some of money one day. That much I can assure you.

He may report on "real" events, but his comments about those events are based on corrupt anonymous sources who may or may not lie and/or are based on his own incredible stretch of the truth (and that's being nice). He's a dirtbag.
