Whither VTCommons? (Update)

Second Vermont Republic's sister organization and publication, "Vermont Commons" has over the past weekend finally edited out the erroneous information on the website that said, four months after being dumped from it's distribution deal by Seven Days, it was being distrubuted quarterly in the Burlington Vermont weekly.   Nice catch, Rob!   Was that because you read about it here on Friday?   Or was that merely a result of your vaunted strengths as Vermont's "media educator and reformer?"

Sorry Rob, but after seeing you being quoted as some kind of "expert" last week in both Seven Days and on the FreePress website, I couldn't resist pointing out such an obvious editing error, if not a blatant, "mistakenly" left in bit of puffery that suggested a much wider distribution of what is clearly now nothing more than a very thin e-newsletter.

I'm also curious about that reference to you as a reformer.   Since you appear to be reading this blog, perhaps you'd care to post in comments what "reforms" you've brought about or have been a part of in Vermont or elsewhere, 'cause, hell, if it all comes from producing a thin newsletter or linking to other writer's work, then you might as well call me an expert, eh?

On August 19 a comment was left by an apparent SVR supporter.

It has been my practice to permit comments both pro and con (the sole exception being another SVR supporter who would not answer questions and only engaged in flaming).

The SVR supporter's IP address was later involved in a act of vandalism at another website on August 19. The type of vandalism engaged in was of a form much used by secession supporters and is a reason why this blog is anonymous.

The IP has been reported and the comment is deleted.

I think the fact that you ARE anonymous is the reason ALLEGEDLY someone is messing with you. The real reason of course is that you are a paid agent of one of the organizations you link to: SLPC, ADL, AIPAC, CIA, FBI, NSA, who knows which. Your lack of honesty in saying who you are makes people think you are some agent of a govt, domestic or foreign. If you are a real citizen, with real concerns, then it is time to out yourself.
