1 November 2010


First let me apologise for the cryptyic message you just received.  Sorry. It was meant to go to me only as check on how the mailing system was working and not to everyone.  Then when you got it, It seems hitting reply didn't work, it should have done. I checked the box for 'replies go to the list owner'.  That's me.  It still doesn't work, I don't know why but I'm working on it. I think I know more about writing and researching than I do about running a mailing list!  If you want to contact me, please use this address:  chestercountynews@gmail.com
  That works to unsubscribe from my list, to subscribe, or whatever.

Well, they got to me.  My email account was seriously hacked. That's why I am trying a different system.  I finished up getting 567 delivery failure notices when I repeatedly tried to send out my last mail. And I got completely lost.  I sent out a large number of emails individually.  In the mess up some people got it more often than once.  Lots more often than once.  Barry Dilibero wrote, and others wrote similarly, "
I have received this email 4 times today.  Thank you for the information but I do not need it that many times." 

Oops again! Sorry about that!  At least Barry, and most others, were polite about it.  Ken Witek wrote " How many times are you going to send this f*****g message??????"  Only it didn't have the stars when he wrote it. Well, he won't be bothered with any more messages from me.  If anyone else doesn't want to continue receive my "f*****messages", all you have to do is tell me and it will be done.   No problem.

I think some people didn't get my last newsletter at all?  The one replying to the email from the township?  Ask, and thou shalt receive.  Write to chestercountynews@gmail.com

And a note to those others.  You won't close me down.  You might cause me inconvenience but you won't shut me up.  If necessary I'll use a webmail service or list provider in Russia.  Just fancy that.  Planning to go to Russia to maintain free speech in the United States of America.  Pull down that flag flying proudly in front of the township building. 

Oh. Did someone say
there isn't one flying there?  Oh-oh.

And some people still ask, why do I wish to remain anonymous?  Well, they - whoever they are, I'll leave you to guess - 
are certainly expert at making life tough for someone who gets in their way.  That's why I'm not sticking my head over the parapet.  No way. I don't want spurious cease and desist orders coming at me from all sides in addition to all those claims that I am sending out spam. And for what?  Telling the truth and making a couple of comments? Call me a chicken if you like.  I've got better things to do with my life.  Hopefully I've now got my head in front again.  I've dumped everyone who I think might have objected to my emails. (40 people)  If there is anyone left who doesn't want to read this stuff, please tell me, you're gone. 

But there are good points with sending out these newsletters.  I received this mail
I have to tell you that each one of your emails have made me chuckle. We don't know who you are but I wish I did so I could thank you. "

and another wrote
Trust me, your efforts are much appreciated!"

and yet another
"As usual, you have a very eloquent way of saying "F**k You! I Won!" Great job!"

And after each email I get a number of requests from people to be added to my list.

Well, rant now over.  Normal service is being resumed.

I see that township meetings are now being videoed. Go to the township web site, click on meetings and minutes, and under the appropriate date you will see 'video link'.  The sound is not brilliant but it's there.  So far it seems that the video link has replaced the written minutes rather than being in addition to.  I guess the minutes will come later when they have been approved. 

Here are some accounts in the Daily Local where the board seemed reluctant to install video.  Please read the comments.

Dispute over which copy of meetings to appear on TV

West Vincent clarifies recording requirements

I don't know why they had such a change of heart but it is to be applauded.

As usual, if you want to be on or off my list, or have some comments or suggestions, please let me know.  Feel free to forward this email on to anyone you think might be interested.  Especially though, if you don't want to continue to receive my mails, please tell me.  Write to chestercountynews@gmail.com
    (Don't just  hit reply because if you do the reply just bounces back to you as undeliverable, and I don't get to see it.)

Best wishes

Cluck Cluck I'm a chicken
