Harrisburg Happening

Who is blocked and who is not?

As of now, I am still able to post on PennLive, but others including GastonStreet (by the way, is that a reference to Gaston Street in Savannah?) and Jones123etc. I have posted complaining about it.

It's sooo going to get taken down.

But thanks for backing us up now that we have been muted.

Yeah, Thanks for the mention. And, yes again, you are right, GastonStreet in Savannah, where I lived back in the 80's while attending the Savannah College of Art and Design. Something we have in common....our mutual love of all things Savannah!

You are a SCAD grad? I love that place. You must have been there at the beginnings of SCAD. We go to Savannah at least once or twice a year. I just love the downtown, and Tybee island.

Yeah, class of 83'. First graduating class, lots of memories, but Savannah has changed....no longer a small town, and they have come a long way in the rehab of the buildings downtown. What a difference 23 years makes!

Some of the lofts are amazing, such a great commercial and residential mix. It's what I hope we can do here in Harrisburg, if I don't move to Savannah instead of waiting.

What I find frustrating is the constant announcements about new plans, before any are in fact finalized. I wrote a spoof press release once about that and sent it to the Patriot as commentary- announcing my plans for redevelopment. They rejected it. Maybe I will post it here someday.

Ok, I snuck back in but I'm not posting the name here. Let them figure it out and ban me on their own.

I don't know if you ever saw Savannah before SCAD came along, it was just as slow and befuddled as Harrisburg. Mayor Reed really should re-evaluate his economic developement agenda and consider the revenue returns of higher education. Savannah BOOMED when SCAD moved into town. I was back for a visit a couple of years ago and hardly recognized the place! I would love to see an Art an Architecture School here!

but doesn't milton report to someone who has the ability to tell him that he can't just delete anything he feels like deleting? there have to be rules. doesn't everyone who gets a paycheck have to abide by some rules? that's the way it's always worked for me anyway.

GastonStreet - how about suggesting to the powers that be down at SCAD that they need a branch here. I've been thinking about that idea for a while. Just seed it all through like in Savannah. I was down there six months ago, and they even have begun renovating the mid-century modern motels!

I just checked out PennLive, HA,HA,HA, there is no one left that has not been blocked or deleted...way to go, at this rate their advertising revenue will reflect the lack of activity on the forum and someone will start to check out the censorship...Look out Milton, your job is on the block! Yeah, and by the way...WHO THE HELL IS MILTON??

Milton is the loser from the movie Office Space - the one with the red SwingLine stapler, who never gets any birthday cake and whose office was moved to the basement because his job was eliminated a year ago but due to a problem in payroll, he's still getting a paycheck and wasn't told to hit the pike.

Milton also farts at his desk and picks his nose. A lot.

If you don't like the way PennLive.com treats you, why do you hang out there? They have just as much right to police their forums in a manner that they consider to be appropriate as you do to ask (or order) an unwelcome guest to leave your house.
