Time for Mother Calhoun To Spank, Again?

Long time readers will remember the Hideous & Appalling ANONYMOUS person calling himself/herself/itself “Crapkiller,” who regularly posted comments on this blogsite. Before the 218 sewer assessment vote, this Piece of Work threatened to post how citizens voted in the 218 assessment, list their names, how they voted & etc., in some kind of sick neener-neener threat of Be Careful How You Vote, That Vote Is Public And I’ll Let Everyone Know How You Voted. The threat was to real people, real votes, real time, a real threat. At the time, I posted a notice that Crap had crossed the line and I’d be hitting the delete button for all her/his/its postings. Another ANONYMOUS commentor calling himself “Shark Inlet” protested and said I should issue a warning then if real time, real people “threats” were made, I could then start dumping “Crap.” (I gathered that Crap and Inlet were “friends.”) I did so and Crap mercifully went away for a while, maybe. But at least the threats to “out” peoples’ votes before an election stopped.

Some ANONYMOUS person has recently posted information in the comment section professing to “out” some other ANONYMOUS person who posts as “Shark Inlet,” who is apparently a real person with a real name living in Los Osos in real time. I say, apparently, because even though this person called me, I still have no way of verifying who was on the other end of the phone. (This is how seriously nutty a small percentage of people here in Los Osos have gotten about all things sewerish.)

I posted the following warning on the comment section regarding this information, but I think I need to post it here as well. If ANONYMOUS posters start threatening real people in real time in a real town, I will start hitting the delete button on them. If ANONYMOUS posters have real evidence that some crime has been committed, they need to contact the proper authorities. If they wish to call each other names, they’ve already been warned to not get all potty-mouthed or Mother Calhoun will start hitting the delete button on them as well. One ANONYMOUS poster calling another ANONYMOUS poster a liar or unethical or a sleazy doody-head is simply comical, since neither party has any credibility at all. Meanwhile, to all my readers, I re-post my caveat below, the one that I posted on the Oct 13 comment section. You have been warned :


WARNING! WARNING! I need to remind the reader that the above postings were posed ANONYMOUSLY. As I have warned folks before, ANONYMOUS posters on this site and any other site have no credibility, so caveat emptor. If somebody has evidence of an actual "crime" that whoever is supposedly committing, take it to the DA, who, likely will snort through his nose and push the file off his desk. Dirty tricks and anonymous posted lies and spin and other made up stuff, while utterly lacking in ethics, are (alas) common practices by a whole lot of people. There are incredibly powerful financial and political interests at work in this community, so that buys and/or creates a lot of dirty tricks, cover-ups, misdirection and flat out pressure to do whatever certain interests want to see done. The opinions expressed in the main body of this blog are mine -- real person, real name. All comments posted here in the comment section, even if they claim to contain somebody's "real" name, are ANONYMOUS and need to be treated as such.

CSD Candidate Forum Last Night.

About 75 people turned out last night for the League of Women Voter’s Candidate Forum for the CSD Board. Hooray for all the Candidates running. Hooray for the League. Hoory for the folks who turned out to ask and listen to questions of concern to them. Let’s hope the whole community is paying attention and actually gets off its duff and votes.


Appropos of Which, From the Internet. Something to think about as we slog through another election cycle

With the exception of “lobbyists,” I have to agree with much of this. Without campaign reform (money, money, money) the problem of our elected officials needing to raise obscene amounts of money every day for what has turned into a 24/7/365 campaign season, the problem will not be lessened. On the other hand, We The People are also the only ones who can elect officials and or change our constitution or whatever is needed, which can change the rules governing the way our campaigns are run, so it’s back to square one as well.

Subject: The Truth of the Matter is!

Politicians are the only people in the world who create problems and then campaign against them.
Have you ever wondered why, if both the Democrats and the Republicans are against deficits, we have deficits?
Have you ever wondered why, if all the politicians are against inflation and high taxes, we have inflation and high taxes?
You and I don't propose a federal budget,
the President does.Y
ou and I don't have the Constitutional authority to vote on appropriations' the House of Representatives does.
You and I don't write the tax code,
Congress does.You and I don't set fiscal policy,
Congress does.You and I don't control monetary policy,
the Federal Reserve Bank does.
One hundred senators, 435 congressmen, one president, and nine Supreme Court justices 545 human beings out of the 300 million are directly, legally, morally, and individually responsible for the domestic problems that plague this country.
I excluded the members of the Federal Reserve Board because that problem was created by the Congress. In 1913, Congress delegated its Constitutional duty to provide a sound currency to a federally chartered, but private, central bank.
I excluded all the special interests and lobbyists for a sound reason. They have no legal authority. They have no ability to coerce a senator, a congressman, or a president to do one cotton-picking thing. I don't care if they offer a politician $1 million dollars in cash. The politician has the power to accept or reject it. No matter what the lobbyist promises, it is the legislator's responsibility to determine how he votes.
Those 545 human beings spend much of their energy convincing you that what they did is not their fault. They cooperate in this common con regardless of party.
What separates a politician from a normal human being is an excessive amount of gall. No normal human being would have the gall of a Speaker, who stood up and criticized the President for creating deficits.
The President can only propose a budget. He cannot force the Congress to accept it.
The Constitution, which is the supreme law of the land, gives sole responsibility to the House of Representatives for originating and approving appropriations and taxes.
Who is the Speaker of the House? She is the leader of the majority party. She and fellow House members, not the President, can approve any budget they want.
If the President vetoes it, they can pass it over his veto if they agree to.
It seems inconceivable to me that a nation of 300 million cannot replace 545 people who stand convicted -- by present facts -- of incompetence and irresponsibility.
I can't think of a single domestic problem that is not traceable directly to those 545 people.
When you fully grasp the plain truth that 545 people exercise the power of the federal government, then it must follow that what exists is what they want to exist.
If the tax code is unfair, it's because they want it unfair.
If the budget is in the red, it's because they want it in the red.
If the Marines are in IRAQ, it's because they want them in IRAQ.
If they do not receive social security but are on an elite retirement plan not available to the people, it's because they want it that way.
There are no insoluble government problems.
Do not let these 545 people shift the blame to bureaucrats, whom they hire and whose jobs they can abolish; to lobbyists, whose gifts and advice they can reject; to regulators, to whom they give the power to regulate and from whom they can take this power.
Above all, do not let them con you into the belief that there exists disembodied mystical forces like 'the economy╩╝, 'inflation╩╝, or 'politics' that prevent them from doing what they take an oath to do.
Those 545 people, and they alone, are responsible.
They, and they alone, have the power.They, and they alone, should be held accountable by the people who are their bosses provided the voters have the gumption to manage their own employees.
We should vote all of them out of office and clean up their mess!
What you do with this article now that you have read it is up to you, though you appear to have several choices:
1. You can send this to everyone in your address book, and hope they do something about it.
2. You can agree to vote against everyone that is currently in office, knowing that the process will take several years.
3. You can decide to run for office yourself and agree to do the job properly.
4. Lastly, you can sit back and do nothing, or re-elect the current bunch.

Ann,
Powerful and poignant post. I plan to do all but #3 and #4. ;-)

Right when I thought this story couldn't get any better!...

Sounds like Robin Grille f-d up and trusted Steve Rein. BIIIIG mistake, right Gup?:

http://www.ezzotruth.com/robin-grille.html

This stuff is great! Who dug all of this up? OsosChange?

It's excellent. Oh, please tell me it's all true.

I mean, look at this stuff:

"The amount of misrepresentation on Mr. Rein's site is staggering. As such, it is not possible to comment on it all."

and;

"In addition to the many false and misleading postings found on his site, we have personally seen the written documents implicating Mr. Rein in a potentially prosecutable crime against GFI. In 1997 GFI discovered that a password protected area and other back areas of their computer were wrongfully accessed leaving behind an electronic fingerprint."

Great, my stalker is also a hacker... allegedly. Just my luck.

Hey, Gup, sounds like ol' Ez isn't down with "Attachment Parenting." Got any takes on that?

Awesome!

Shark Inlet (a.k.a. Stiv Neener) said...

Ron,

You ask whether it's all true.

Well ... sorry to disappoint, but pretty much none of it is.

I do seem to have a history of poking bullies with a stick and sometimes they play dirty.

If you want to talk about the Ezzos or their teachings, that is fine but more than a bit off-topic for this blog. Yes, Ezzo teaches feeding infants on a schedule instead of when they give hunger cues as recommended by pediatricians.

Please realize that if you adopt a "the enemy of my enemy is my friend" position it might cause you to make some mistakes.


By the way, have you apologized yet for mischaracterizing Maria's position on dissolution?

I would think that a person really concerned with the truth would go out of their way to offer a clarification and apology when they may have inadvertently "reported" something in error that caused people to develop a false impression.

Churadogs said...

Uh, actually, I suppose Ron is asking whether the claim that you left behind electronic fingerprints on somebody else website is true or not. I would presume that's what's of interest since while the Anonymous person who originally posted this info, said he/she/it is willing to remove words implying illegality, but it remains an issue of ethical, proper conduct, all this alleged electronic hacking/sneak/n/peeping & etc.

Shark Inlet (a.k.a. Stiv Neener) said...

Ann ... um ... yes and no.

Lemmie splain.

Anytime you visit a website, you leave behind an electronic fingerprint. After all, when you ask google a question, the computers there need to know which machine on the vast internet is where they should send the answer. In that way, when I visited the GFI website way back when, I left a fingerprint (my IP address, as it were).

The claim that I stole someone's documents or that I had even accessed a password protected area of some computer system is, however, completely wrong.

The fact is that this is all about something over ten year ago and if the police found no reason to prosecute when the complaint was first made and if nothing has happened with the police, FBI or anyone else since the first false charge, I would think that any reasonable person would agree that there was nothing there.

Ron said...

Beautiful... just beautiful. The journalism Gods must like me.

Uh, actually, I don't, because I don't care when parents feed their kids (and, certainly not enough to launch a web site on the subject and post a "staggering" amount of misinformation on it... that some fool then uses as "fact," and then gets sued for it (you should see how hard I'm laughing as I type this), I just wanted to see if you did. And you did. You took the bait, just like a good little fish. Incredible.

So, what are you then? Just some guy that runs around, and, without compensation, deliberately spreads misinformation about people that you don't agree with by posting a "staggering" amount of "false and misleading" information on web sites?

Frankly, that's the creepiest thing I've ever heard.

(And, for the love of god, please don't hack me. I'll save you some time. I'm really boring, so there's nothing to find anyway.)

Hey, Gup, here's a statistic for ya:

5-0, 5-0, 5-0, Three Blocks published, 3-2, 0-5, 0-4-1.

Shark Inlet (a.k.a. Stiv Neener) said...

Ron,

Was there any content in that comment? I didn't notice any ... just some snide remarks.

Oh yeah, have you apologized to Maria yet for deliberately not correcting your misstatements about her when you were first informed that you were wrong and there was video to prove you were wrong?

Ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha!!!!!!!!

ron is saying this to Shark?????

Ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha!!!!!!!! Pardon me while I choke on my disbelief of the gall this took!! Didn't know that came super-sized!

Howie said...

Ron,

What's important here is that people beyond this blog now know that Shark Inlet is Steve Rein.

It's time, as one blogger put out there, for the Shark Inlet era come to an END. And it's come with a whimper.

Rein cries like the victim here: "I do seem to have a history of poking bullies with a stick and sometimes they play dirty."

Disgusting! Rein is obviously unrepentant, doesn't "get it" and never will. So here it is, one more time, for Steve Rein's sake, served up to him on a silver platter.

REIN: YOU ARE THE BULLY, NOT THE VICTIM! YOU PLAY DIRTY, THE DIRTBAG IS YOU!!! Y-O-U!!!

OK, Steve???? Got it NOW??? However, if you STILL DON'T "GET IT," don't hesitate to call Ann again and beg like the weenie you really are behind the mask of "Shark Inlet" ... and maybe, for old time's sake, she will shed a tear for the poor, toothless Shark, and take down those awful truthful words ... especially after the way you have treated her ... and many others who only stopped here for a moment to drink from the well of intelligence and fair play ... and got YOU INSTEAD!!!

Rein really doesn't look so smart anymore, standing naked and exposed, does he? Pathological liar, lobbyist, angry hacker, wimp and whiner, now laughingstock -- someone only Richard and Gordon could love because they, too, like Rein, are common criminals killing time awaiting justice.

Steve Rein now joins his cheap, low-life "heroes" in the Los Osos Hall of Shame. No wonder he defends them like one of his own!

No reasonable person should ever be naive here ever again and engage Rein without first understanding you are attempting to communicate with someone who is basically CERTIFIABLY INSANE for what he believes in. There is no sense in trying to find a way in to his one-note brain. Rein lives in a perpetual state of denial. Make no mistake about it. Steve Rein is a dangerous, even potentially violent person (like several other Dreamers) who could snap at any moment. Because of all the bad things he has said in the past to people as "Shark Inlet," because he lives in a bubble world that is bursting all over him, and because he knows better than anyone what he's said and done to people over the years as "Shark Inlet," outing Rein makes him very explosive. No one knows how far he might go. We now know how far he went and, regardless of any lame philosophical reason he might cough up, WHAT HE DID WAS ALREADY WAY TOO EXTREME!!!

Rein says he hasn't practiced hackery for 10 years ago and it's all in the past, but here he is in Los Osos doing exactly the same thing in did at VCU because, guess what, folks, STEVE REIN HASN'T CHANGED ONE IOTA!!! HE'S STILL THE SAME ROTTEN COWARD HE ALWAYS WAS!!!

Can you believe the guy responsible for all this 24/7 hate blogging is a Cal Poly Professor??? It boggles the mind. Shame on Cal Poly!!! SHAME ON CAL POLY!!!

Since Rein himself brought up his parenting philosophies as justification for his viciousness toward fellow Christians, I think it's only fair to question his parenting practices based on his blogging activities:

He blogs all days, blogs all nights, blogs at home, blogs at work ... has a wife, four kids, and a cute little dog ... is a professor of statistics (???) at Cal Poly ... does bits of work for CalTrans and DWR ... and STILL has tons of FREE TIME ... time to blog ... time to attack ... time to hate ... time to hack. Whatever his parenting philosophy is or isn't, I could care less, but his Internet obsessions are inexplicable ... and DOWNRIGHT CREEPY.

Rein, as a good Christian, must have missed the Sunday School Lesson that went something like: "WHATEVER YOU REAP, SO SHALL YE SOW"!

That Sunday he must have been blogging.

Billy Dunne said...

If you haven't seen a move called "Dazed and Confused," I highly recommend it. It's absolutely spot on hilarious if you grew up in the 60's and 70's. In the movie, Matthew McConaughey plays a character who's 20 something but still hangs around his high school and all the, well, high schoolers. I'm sure we all knew someone like that....someone unable to grow up and put his high school years behind him. I think of 'ol Ron every time I see the McConaughey character in that movie. He leaves town, but just can't leave the Los Osos years behind him. He still holds an obsessive grudge for some of his mean old teachers, like Pandora Nash Karner, and is still looking for the bullies who made his freshman year miserable, like Shark. And even tho he's grown up and hopefully moved on, he still brags about a term paper he wrote in Mrs. Smith's class years and years ago.

I'll tell you, to me, THAT's creepy.

Ron, are you still making those bongs in wood shop?

And Howie, I would have thought after your embarrassment in the Morro Bay city council race you would have found some other community to haunt. Guess not.

Shark Inlet (a.k.a. Stiv Neener) said...

Okay Howie ...

You say that I've been a bully and that I don't get it.

Would you be so kind as to explain the ways in which I've been bullying here? Will you tell me things that I've written here which have been incorrect so that I can either clarify or correct what I might have written?

I would love the opportunity to understand what I should have done differently. Help me out here.


Now on the matter of what I called Ann about (how you happen to know I called her is curious and troubling to say the least) ... you've got to admit that OsosChange threatened to and claimed to report me to Social Services, asking them to investigate me. If that isn't out of line, I don't know what is. Ann chose to warn folks here that threats are out of line. Do you disagree?

Your suggestion that I am dangerous and potentially violent is laughable ... you don't know me at all and so have no idea about what you write. Explosive? Hahaha.

To correct one of the many things you say in your comment, I claim that I have never practiced hacking, not just not in the last 10 years.

Your suggestion that as a Cal Poly employee means I cannot voice an opinion is simply shameful. Who else do you wanna silence? All CalTrans employees?


As to the question of creepy ... I've never mentioned a "cute little dog" here and I don't believe I've mentioned here that I've got four kids. That you would even know these is really creepy.

Now ... to the question at hand ... how does any of this stuff you seem to care deeply about ... my past and my family life ... how does it have anything to do with the Los Osos election or what sewer system is best for our town? If you can explain any relation between the two it would be great.

Howie said...

Good, Steven ...

As I clearly mentioned earlier, I don't talk to fools, unless you have some positive redeeming social value like being able to play the piano very well, so I'll keep this brief.

I could hold your hand all night, but, knowing you as little as I do, I don't really think it would make much of a difference. You don't care to be any more (or less) or a human being than you already are. You stopped living and started existing long ago. You are an insensitive lout, I can see by reading your rather weak-kneed bleatings on your behalf. In the end, your paltry defense makes you look like a pretty bad guy!

Steve, you are just a naturally irritating guy! And it's not because you're smart or educated or "reasonable" or anything like that, for sure. It's simply the hard blogging time you put in, TOTAL HOURS BLOGGED, compared to the average blogger, and the disdain you've shown toward anyone who doesn't agree with you. How many YEARS of this now???

Personally, Steve, I don't like hackers. You fit the profile like a cheap, custom-made suit. You exhibit all the classic hacker symptons -- the obsession, the arrogance, belief in your superiority, that you won't get caught, the contempt for your adversaries -- and always TOTAL DENIAL OF ANYTHING AND EVERYTHING (Bart Simpson?) -- so I wish you would stop playing the "nice" Tony Perkins with me.

You are not a very good person and it's sad for this town that there are other people out there, a lot of them, yes, just like you, just as rotten as you, who are running for the board and/or who want to control this town ... and that has a lot to do with you and this election, the people you support, what the best sewer system is for our community, who the best people are for the community ... and in whose hands we entrust our future.

Since you, obviously, are not one to trust, as your history of duplicity clearly illustrates, who wins our election really shouldn't be anyone like you or who you endorse, Steve, because you are corrupt just like them and we've had enough of that, haven't we?

No, I do not believe in threats. That would be acting just a different shade of you.

And, yes, you certainly are an embarrassment to Cal Poly. No Professor at Cal Poly, no CalTrans employee, lives his life in virtual reality online like you do. I mean, NOBODY! Your behavior pathetic by any standard you may choose. (I know you can't help yourself.)

What's so creepy about knowing about you and your family? It's all over the Internet, you dope. Don't you know? You put it there.

Shark Inlet (a.k.a. Stiv Neener) said...

Howie,

I see that you really didn't list off any examples of bullying or something that I could have done different ... just that I have an opinion that some don't like and that I spend more time than you think I should making comments.

Let's look at what you say about me. In this last comments you've said that I'm a fool, an insensitive lout, irritating, someone who shows disdain towards those who disagree with me, arrogant, superior, contempt for those I disagree with, not a good person, rotten, untrustworthy, duplicitous, corrupt and finally an embarrassment.

That's quite a list. Certainly someone who feels this strongly about another person should have a solid, evidence-based, reason for such feelings. Saying you make too many comments isn't a reason for feelings this strong. Saying you disagree with me about a sewer isn't good enuf.

To call me all those names based on (apparently) only on your subjective belief that I spend too much time commenting is troubling to me.

I would ask you to reconsider your belief about my character if you don't have examples of my contempt, disdain and corruption. Again, if there are examples of this, please let me know so that I can either clarify or correct my words.

Lastly, I don't remember posting information about my dog anywhere on the internet. That you bring up my dog in a knowing way suggests more than you just happened on the information somewhere on the web. It's not there. Heck, even if you were just spending time looking me up on the web seems a bit obsessive to me.

Hey, get back to me on this one ... either your anger has biased you or there really is something that I've done (other than the frequency of my comments) which is offensive. Let me know what it is or have the honestly to admit (at least to yourself) that you've been a bit unfair in your assessment.

That's because the Ezs' have it exactly right:

"... it is not possible to comment on it all."

[You and your hair-trigger demands for apologies... funny. Grow some skin, wuss. (Ooops, am I going to have to apologize for that now, too?)]

Speaking of Maria... since it's election season, and all. Just a reminder:

Maria's the "founder" of WH2O, and WH2O is the " the education and outreach arm of the San Luis Obispo Coastkeeper," and the San Luis Obispo Coastkeeper IS Gordon Henseley. It's just him.

Hilarious. I just can't bring that up enough.

Good luck with that this campaign season, Maria.

Shark Inlet (a.k.a. Stiv Neener) said...

So, when asked can you name a single example of bullying Ron responds with it is not possible to comment on it all.

Funny thing ... no one asked for a complete list.

So, let's toss it out there again. Ron (or anyone), could you provide one example of me being a bully? If you can, I would like to clarify my remarks (so that they don't seem so bullying) or apologize (if they were bullying).

Howie said...

Rein!

I simply don't know what to do with you!!!

Your remarks below say volumes about you, the damage done to you and the damage you've done to others, even better than I could say it myself:

"I don't remember posting information about my dog anywhere on the internet. That you bring up my dog in a knowing way suggests more than you just happened on the information somewhere on the web. It's not there. Heck, even if you were just spending time looking me up on the web seems a bit obsessive to me."

OK, are you ready for the punchline now???

YOU, YOUR DOG, YOUR KIDS, YOUR VACATION ARE ALL UP ON YOUTUBE WHERE YOU PUT THEM, SHARK INLET, YOU DUNDERHEAD!!!

You spend so much time online, your left brain doesn't know what the right brain did 5 minutes ago ... let alone 5 days ago ... 5 weeks ago ... 5 years ago. It's all one big blur to you, isn't it? How quick you are to turn things around ... or at least to try! That is your trademark move, selling your "Sewer To Nowhere."

I pity your students. If their parents only knew they were paying big bucks for their kids to sit in a Cal Poly classroom with an extremist nutjob like you ... And shouldn't you be teaching "Hacking for Fun & Profit" instead of "How To Make Numbers Come Out The Way You Want Them To ... If You Pay Me Enough"?

I also like your liberal use of the "Richard Legros Defense" -- 'I haven't been arrested today, therefore I am innocent of all charges ever made against me by anyone who knows what I did. Just call my friend, the DA, and ask him.'

From now on, Steve, I will call you by your new name:

LITTLE STEVIE BLUNDER

You are that blind to who you actually are ... at age 42.

Wow.

I'm impressed you could survive in the dark that long.

Shark Inlet (a.k.a. Stiv Neener) said...

Let me get this straight, Howie.

You want out of your way to search for "sharkinlet" on youtube of all places?

Googling "steve rein" or "sharkinlet" do not come up with the youtube material in the top several pages of hits (if at all) unless you were to google "sharkinlet youtube".

Certainly I did not put any links online that would cause any normal, non-obsessive person to think stumble on my family vacation photos by accident, even if looking for me or my moniker by name.

Perhaps you would be willing to explain how you just happened on my family photos it would cause people here to be less wierded out by an apparent obsession with hunting down all sorts of info about me. I'm not all that private about certain things, but I'll claim that one would not just happen to find that youtube site without really looking hard.

So ... splain it for us.


I would also like it if you would please explain why Gail McPherson hasn't denied being part of a satanic cult that killed 14 homeless drifters in Riverside during the 1980s. If someone were to start a rumor to that effect would it make it true?

How do you come down on the whole "innocent until proven guilty" thing? Are you in favor of dropping that part of our justice system like they did during the Salem witch trials?


Lastly, how is being an "extremist nutjob" to ask people to do a cost/benefit analysis before making a huge decision or to ask for medical evidence before accepting a nonstandard practices as "best" for infant feeding?

Somehow this all seems sort of Alice-in-Wonderlandish to me. Since when is arguing for caution and asking for evidence the definition of extremism?

Howie,

I loved it when Shark/Steve said:

"... I'm a fool, an insensitive lout, irritating, someone who shows disdain towards those who disagree with me, arrogant, superior, contempt for those I disagree with, not a good person, rotten, untrustworthy, duplicitous, corrupt and finally an embarrassment..."

Howie, I think you covered it!

Ooops, you missed that Shark's a "hypocrite" and a "lobbyist" for the County & Dreamer's big fat stinkin' gravity sewer!

The pro-gravity Dreamers on this blog (Lynette, Shark/Steve, Gordon/Mike/Crapkiller/Billy Dunne and Richard) are no engineers -- no sewer experts (I have yet to see one expert that likes their Tri-W gravity sewer) yet they speak as if they are the experts. Perhaps they think they are.

Their aggressive blogging amazes me to no end.

Sewertoons said...

howie, what deity has propped you up to be the judge and jury around here?

You appear to be some weirdo that has an obsession, like ron has with Pandora. You appear to be someone with extreme anger management issues that is trying really hard to persuade us bloggers to take up your point of view. I don't think you've made any sales. You've gotten, like ron, to be really boring.

I still don't get what point you are trying to make, your anger obliterates your message.

When you point the finger at someone, three fingers are pointing back at you.

Howie said...

Rein!

Isn't google wonderful? It took me all of 1 minute to locate you, Mr. Tech Savvy. I see your paranoia is sky high ... but the fact is, you've been caught before and you've been caught again because you have left many pecker tracks leading right up to your door.

One day, after years of reading your, uh, propaganda, followed by sticking my finger down my throat, I thought to myself: "What a community service it would be to flush one of the filthiest rats out of the Dreamer woodpile? How would that be received by all those offended at one time or another by the vile bottom-feeder known as "Shark Inlet"?

I pondered:

Would I be greeted with flowers and kisses ... like Cheney promised us in Irag?

Would the town build a statue of me frozen at my computer, hitting the keystroke that unveiled the false Oz known as "Shark Inlet"?

Or, would I be carried on the backs of a grateful townspeople and swept into office in a far future CSD election? My campaign bio started with: "The town hero who exposed the identity of longtime town jerk, 'Shark Inlet,' Howie was so popular..."

I hadn't heard the rumor you started that Gail McPherson was part of a satanic cult that killed 14 homeless drifters in Riverside during the 1980s, but the way you told the story sent such a chill up my spine that I can believe it!!! She is a very scary lady, and you are a very scary guy. I now pronounce you man and wife. Hacky Halloween, Stevie!

You close: "Somehow this all seems sort of Alice-in-Wonderlandish to me. Since when is arguing for caution and asking for evidence the definition of extremism?"

Steve, there is "arguing for caution" and then there is going too far -- AND YOU'VE GONE TOO FAR ... from coast to coast. You just don't "ask" ... You don't just "argue for caution" ... You twist, spin, lie, distort, change, alter, rearrange, misinform, disinform, insult, push, bully, deny, avoid, elude, run, hack, hate, attack -- each and every day of your life!

That's not just EXTREME, that's SICK. Do you want my assistance?

You eons ago blew passed the boundaries of Internet etiquette and fair play. You don't even notice your behavior, if you ever did. To you, the abnormal is normal. You've been doing it SO LONG, you don't even remember that you don't remember...

I find it disquieting that you are out there blogging, trying to talk to me about a cost/benefit analysis for infant feeding and thinking you are perfectly OK with everything you do ... when obviously you are TOTALLY INSANE!!!

Sewertoons,

I made my points very clearly. Sorry you missed them. You must have been Dreaming.

howie,

"…obviously you are TOTALLY INSANE!!!"

Remember those three fingers pointing back at you that I mentioned earlier?

Yeah, I got those points, you despise Shark.

So?

Shark Inlet (a.k.a. Stiv Neener) said...

Howie,

You write that that I "twist, spin, lie, distort, change, alter, rearrange, misinform, disinform, insult, push, bully, deny, avoid, elude, run, hack, hate, attack -- each and every day of your life!"

Um ... no. And until you can point out an example, we will know that you're reacting based on your emotions and misperception rather than based on reality.


Also ... I will repeat yet again, there is NO WAY anyone would just happen onto my family vacation photos on youtube without going out of their way to in a rather unusual way. Saying "google" is not a defense here. There is no simple google search that would lead you to my family vacation ... even accidentally.

Unless you can explain how you just happened onto my youtube account (in a way that isn't really creepy) I and probably other will have to assume that you went out of your way to hunt down my family photos.

What is odd is that you're saying that I'm the hacker and bully when you're the one who seems to have demonstrated that you know how to hunt down a person on the internet and the person who apparently feels comfortable threatening people by posting what most people would reasonably believe is somewhat private information.

Your "you can google it" argument doesn't add up.

Howie said...

Rein!

Everybody knows about you now, except you, of course. Remain blind. People dig the gist of the Big Beat I'm laying down.

I think Ron covered it best:

You: "I see that you really didn't list off any examples of bullying or something that I could have done different"

Ron: That's because the Ezs' have it exactly right:

"... it is not possible to comment on it all."

You to me: "Unless you can explain how you just happened onto my youtube account (in a way that isn't really creepy) I and probably other will have to assume that you went out of your way to hunt down my family photos."

"I and probably other..."???

You got that right! You and Sewertoons. Two Taxpayer Watch gravity knuckleheads doesn't even add up to a quorum.

You'll have to go to the cemetery and dig up three more bodies to agree with you.

I'm sure that's where most of Taxpayers Watch "members" call home.

Keep on hackin'!

Howie

Sewertoons said...

howie, you really think it's just the two of us?

Shark Inlet (a.k.a. Stiv Neener) said...

Howie,

Don't you think that you are creeping lots of people out by your desire to hunt down my family photos (in a really odd place that NO ONE WOULD EVER FIND without trying REALLY REALLY HARD to find) and tell others about my family?

Again, if you are comfortable putting yourself out there as the creepy internet hacker guy who will hunt you down online if you disagree with them ... that is fine by me ... but you've gotta realize how this is playing to the Joe the Plumber and not just folks who are sewer fundamentalists and Calhoun junkies already on your own side.

Sewertoons said...

I heard of a new and interesting group that is reading this blog just today. People you don't know and wouldn't even think of. Is this YOUR 15 minutes of fame? Pretty sad.

Churadogs said...

Inlet sez:"Certainly I did not put any links online that would cause any normal, non-obsessive person to think stumble on my family vacation photos by accident, even if looking for me or my moniker by name.

"Perhaps you would be willing to explain how you just happened on my family photos it would cause people here to be less wierded out by an apparent obsession with hunting down all sorts of info about me. I'm not all that private about certain things, but I'll claim that one would not just happen to find that youtube site without really looking hard.

So ... splain it for us."

Uh, I'm missing something here. Isn't the internet a PUBLIC place? And when you post anything in a PUBLIC place you can't expect it to remain private, especially not when one of the key, amazing thing about the internet is the Google! and other search engines that do all the work for you.

Also, puzzling, when you put stuff on U TUBE, isn't that totally PUBLIC? And if you've posted family photos on a site that isn't encrypted, isn't that also PUBLIC? (And if it is encrypted and somebody hacked it, shouldn't you report that to the Feds?)

So if you've got PUBLIC stuff out in PUBLIC, it seems silly to cry foul when some anonymous PUBLIC person uses the Mighty Google and other powerful search engines devised for such things, to track down all your PUBLIC stuff.(Remember Crapkiller threatening to comb through the assessment records to "out" how people voted. That vote was PUBLIC, so she/he/it doing so was perfectly "legal." The question for me was ethical, which is why I 86/ed her/him/it, and if you remember Inlet, you defended him/her/it and asked for another chance. So it seems silly for you to go boo-hooing when somebody is doing exactly what your buddy threatened to do and you defended.)

And if you don't want your stuff in PUBLIC, you don't put it out there. Or, as my Mommy told me years ago, don't write anything down you don't want read back to you in a court of law. (Personally, I rather like the Iron Duke's reply when faced with blackmail: "Published and BE DAMNED")

Plus, sadly, it's getting harder and harder for anyone to have a private life anymore, such is our invasive technology. Take a look at good old Joe the Plumber, his public tax records are public and now blatted nationwide. Poor Joe.

Shark Inlet (a.k.a. Stiv Neener) said...

Ann,

I am not crying foul but saying that when Howie tells us that he just happened on my photos it was easy or by chance. He had to really go out of his way to find my youtube stuff. Lemmie splain. If you typed "sharkinlet" into google, the first twelve pages of links served up do not contain links to my youtube videos ... that's when I gave up. Maybe somewhere further down the list there is a link.

The fact is that Howie went out of his way to find that information and he's now being coy about how he got the info. One wonders if it is because he is embarrassed to admit that his actions are no better than what he accuses me of.

No one is boo-hoo-ing here ... I'm asking Howie to explain how he got there. If he can explain this without creeping us all out, I'll be surprised.

Sewertoons said...

So will the rest of us!

Sewertoons said...

The question remains - WHY did howie do this? It all seems so personal to HIM - why blurt his obsession out here? Like we care about Shark's personal life in relation to what goes on in this blog? No offense Shark, but I don't know you, and for me, your personal stuff is just that - personal to you!

I don't think there is a non-creepy answer, and I personally doubt we'll hear an answer from howie - much like ron when confronted.

Howie said...

Little Stevie Blunder!!!

"Again, if you are comfortable putting yourself out there as the creepy internet hacker guy who will hunt you down online if you disagree with them ... that is fine by me."

Laughing at you!~!~!~!!!

Your favorite tune must be Chubby Checker's "The Twist." That's all you've got left in your dwindling arsenal of weak rebuttals to defend the indefensible. You should never serve as your own lawyer. You remain guilty here as charged. Very guilty.

I don't think I've run across anyone as messed up as you for a long time ... not since the last psychotic hacker I busted.

May I add that your silly sttempt to turn things around on me and make people think I'm YOU tells me that you are rather uncomfortable wearing the yoke of the extremist. But then that's what you are, Rein. If the shoe fits, wear it, and it fits you like Cinderella's slipper.

"No one is boo-hoo-ing here ... I'm asking Howie to explain how he got there. If he can explain this without creeping us all out, I'll be surprised."

Who is this "ALL" you keep referring to? There is no one on this island to cheer you on except you, sweet, mindless Sewertoons and the usual multiple-ID suspects.

You are completely alone in your hackery.

Your pathology has been laid out here quite clearly through the history of your bloggings. Anyone can go back and read them. You should, too. They speak for themselves -- they form the diary of a bigot and extremist and tells the sick tale of a 42-year-old misanthrope who only feels POWER when he puts on the costume of the Internet predator "Shark Inlet"

Unfortunately, you have chosen to waste a lifetime living in a tiny box incubating extremist notions that don't fly in the real world. Too bad you find it so difficult existing as the puny "Steve Rein." At this late date I seriously doubt there is such a person as "Steve Rein" anymore, just the hollow shell of a hacker queen waiting for the end.

I truly understand why you are so disturbed that your identity has been exposed -- you were SOMEBODY, no matter how vile, as "Shark Inlet," but you are a ZERO as "Steve Rein." When you lost "Shark Inlet" you lost everything you imagined yourself to be.

Obviously you are now feeling a bit itchy now in your natural mouseskin.

Suggestion: Why don't you kill off evil "Shark Inlet" once and for all and work on what's left of the good in "Steve Rein" -- if any -- while you still have a chance?

Let me know if you still need more of my guidance.

Faithfully,

Howie

Sewertoons said...

howie IS back!

Alas, no explanation, but still creeping me out.

Mike said...

...Howie has a surprise coming...

Howie said...

Mike/Crapkiller,

Are you threatening me?

Sewertoons said...

howie,, were you threatening Shark?

Mike said...

Good Heaven No Howie... I think, and this is merely my anonmus opinion, but you sound like a 15 year old bully trying to intimidate the playground... only some us are not going to be intimidated by your childish threats... Me threaten...??? No way... but I guess I can see the fear in your comment...afterall, you are the one throwing around rumor and half truths... see ya again soon...

Shark Inlet (a.k.a. Stiv Neener) said...

Just to make the point clear (and because Howie hasn't replied at all on topic), I challenge anyone to use google to find my youtube account without specifically googling "youtube sharkinlet" or using "youtube" in the search window at all. How easy can it be done? Can it be done at all? How much of a creepy obsessive guy is Howie to take the time to do all sorts of google searches to find my family photos in a place that NO ONE would ever stumble upon without specifically looking.

I gave up after 20 minutes.

Of course the most interesting thing here is that Howie both accuses me of being a hacker and clueless about the internet. Those two seem to not go together at all. Of course, he's never explained that paradox just like he's never explained his other obsessive hacker-like behavior either.

Mike said...

Hi Shark... What amazes me is that Ann Calhoun has permitted this obsessive diversion for so long... Sure even she can see the threats, this is way beyond anything normal and way way off any discussion of the need for or against a sewer or even a literary discussion of a poem...

This is absolutely insane the way Howie, getrealosos and osos change have attacked you... Surely, and God forbid, should any harm come to you or your family, that this entire blog and cast of characters would be supenoed into court...

...and yet Ann refuses to ban those bloggers, a mere slap on the finger only sounds like she knows and backs them... Let's pray nothing serious arises from the extreme obsession and threats of those 3... This country has always moved too slowly, even when this type of strange behaviour is brought to authorities... Columbine comes to mind...hopefully not in Los Osos over a damn sewer....

M said...

Boy, talk about spreading fear. Mike, you're ranking this with Columbine? You think if their not arrested, or put on an restraining order or something that they could go in sharks house and shoot everybody up?

I notice sharkinlet still uses sharkinlet instead of his name. Since his name is now known, which by the way I still don't have a clue who he is, why not use it?

Mike, do you threaten everybody with going to court?

Surely, and God forbid, should any harm come to you or your family, that this entire blog and cast of characters would be supenoed into court...


So what, now do I have to look out for sharks safety or run the risk of being dragged into court?
Sincerely, M

Howie said...

Sewertoons,

You simply don't pay attention, do you?

Me to Sharky: "No, I do not believe in threats. That would be acting just a different shade of you."

Mike/Crapkiller:

... Just as I thought ...

Why am I not surprised at the great lengths extremist cowards like you and Rein will go to suppress anything you don't want to hear or be heard?

You make my point ... over and over and over again.

Which is, that Truth will even grow in a pile of shit, even yours.

Mike said...

Keep it up Howie... you make my point... and yes, I consider you right up there with the Columbine shootings...

I do seriously believe you are so extremely obsessive in your trail to expose Steve, even to go so fas as to publishing his address and saying that you have gone to County Protective Services in some effort to take his children away, that you are a physical threat to Steve and other members of this community...!!!! You have made numerous threats which should be taken very very seriously by law efforcement before you do kill someone...!!!! That's how seriously I take your insane comments...!!!! You have made a believer out of me... You are dangerous....!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Sewertoons said...

howie, what is being suppressed - that is relevant to this discussion, I mean?

Howie said...

Now, Mike, let's get your facts straight ...

*I DID NOT expose Rein's identity. Yes, I did a search on google, which Rein, who thinks he's so smart, can't accept I found so easily while it took him 20 minutes taking the back way to Santa Barbara. Duh! This is the math genius who put his stuff up on YOUTUBE!!!??? What a treasure trove of silliness for ANYONE to access!!!

*I DID NOT publish his address. You're confusing me with another blogger. Seems Rein has pissed off MORE THAN A FEW PEOPLE with his Internet lobbying?

*I NEVER said I would go to CPS about his kids. Again, you are confusing me with another blogger. I wouldn't even THINK of doing such a thing.

*I NEVER made any threat, physical or otherwise to Rein. I NEVER WOULD. TOTAL OPPOSITE.

*The ONLY threat I am to any members of the community is what I SEE about those who are corrupt and aim to do harm to my neighbors through "potentially prosecutable criminal conduct."

The fact that you attribute the comments of OTHERS to me and then threaten to call the police on me kinda makes YOU the dangerous one, don't you think? You are not a very good witness, are you! A little misinformation in a warped brain like yours is not a particular heart-warming thing. I know you're in the 24/7 misinformation business with Rein, but don't get too caught up in believing in your own, ah, flawed "research." If you're not careful about making false charges, you might find yourself on the wrong end of a smokey backfire.

Now, I understand your chagrin regarding the exposing of Rein, but he himself will tell you, as he has already told GetReal here, that "HE ASKED FOR IT." In fact, you will find all but one of my entries here are my RESPONSES to Rein writing me ... and writing me ... and writing me, etc.

Finally, since you are so worried about my sanity, let me reassure you that you have everything to worry about!

However, it may bring you some temporary relief, like suntan lotion on a bad burn, to know that my aim is strictly pure entertainment for artists, thinkers and circus folk. Nothing more, nothing less.

Thank you for not beating your wife ... tonight ...

Howie

Shark Inlet (a.k.a. Stiv Neener) said...

Howie,

I did not see you respond to the question of how you just happened onto my youtube site by google.

I don't mind that you found it ... but I find it odd that you claim that you found it easily. Perhaps you could explain how you used google to find it. If you specifically searched for "youtube sharkinlet" it is more than a bit creepy. If you somehow happened on it in minutes as you claim, please realize that googling my name or "sharkinlet" doesn't serve up anything of mine on youtube in the top 12 pages. Are you saying that you searched thru 12 full pages of google links in an effort to research me.

Again, I don't care that much but you should realize that you've deliberately avoided my question and that is also making you look like a creepy obsessive hacker guy.

Mike said...

Howie, getrealosos and osos change are very much alike in their excessive obsession and are a serious danger to the community....!!!!

You don't seem to be able to post without some violent threat or outright lie... Rumor is your message... You handle the fact that you couldn't answer Shark's questions, so you embarked on a quest to "out" him... You are so extreme in your obsession to squelch viewpoints that are counter to your own narrow view, that you have to play some sort of amature spy (or are there really 3 of you?)...

It has been like listening to the failed CSD blaming everyone but themselves... There has been no outrage by you 3 toward the financial corruption by the CSD these past 3 years, but instead you go after one of the most level voices on this blog... I don't agree with Steve on several issues, but I, nor would any sane and normal person, go to the extremes you 3 have gone, just to discredit his point of view...

Well howie, getrealosos and osos change, you are threatening and dangerous...!!!!

Howie said...

Little Stevie Blunder!!!

I will never tell you my secret shortcut, Mr. Online. Pay me.

At the same time, allow me to point out that ONLY Sewertoons and Mike have come to your defense here.

Almost everybody in these parts (except for the few snoring, soulless Dreamers) NOW KNOWS that "Shark Inlet" IS the "creepy obsessive hacker guy" STEVE REIN. Everybody loves when the bully gets it.

You've seen the movie ads:

STEVE REIN

IS

"THE CREEPY OBSESSIVE COMPUTER GUY"

Starring

Andy Dick as Stevie

Now playing on a blog near you. A Tri-W Cryptkeeper Production. Directed by Gordon Hemsley and Richard LeGotti for Pandora KickBack Enterprises.


Mike/Crapkiller:

Thank you for your kind words.

You belched: "instead you go after one of the most level voices on this blog."

"Level?" Mike, how much did Rein pay you to say that? I'll double whatever he gave you! One man's "Level" is another man's "Tilt." Were you aware of Rein's hackery at VCU? Do you condone extremism in defense of any cause you believe in? Are you John McCain? Do you have a police record?

Of course you do.

Look at me like your dentist. You and Rein are ... like two bad teeth that need to be pulled yesterday.

I was NEVER on ANY quest to out Shark. It all dropped in my laptop, and I must admit it's been a real hoot giving the town yet another look at one of the Dreamers' secret, so-called "leaders."

Imagine how disappointing it was to find out what Rein did at VCU.
Then to find out it was the SAME guy here on Ann's blog trolling as "Shark Inlet" ...

It's one of those who-done-its where you find out at the end that the guy who-done-it is a college professor with a pathology for doing in Los Osos exactly the same things he did in Richmond, Virginia -- including mounting a voluminous extremist campaign against a Christian parenting organization (what kind of Christian does something like that?), using the Internet as his weapon of choice to steal documents (though it takes him 20 minutes to find his photos he put up on YouTube?). Which is why Rein is so qualified to talk about stolen CSD documents. He was caught red-handed with his electronic fingerprint on the cookie jar at VCU.

But what have we learned about this zealot hypocrite Rein that we didn't already know before he was so gleefully outed?

That he is even more rotten then we knew about, before "Shark Inlet" was spawned after he fled VCU ... and even more rotten than we really care to know (Ezzo was right)?

Is this who "supports" Maria Kelley?

Are you one of her henchman, Mike? How much does she pay you? I'll double it.

Is Professor Steve Rein ("borderline psychotic" according to one student) the best that Cal Poly can offer our children?

PRAY NOT! PRAY NOT!

Sewertoons said...

howie, youre related to the Ezzo's, right?

Shark Inlet (a.k.a. Stiv Neener) said...

It seems pretty clear that Howie doesn't intend to answer certain questions (and I, for one, am still thinking his actions don't match his words ... you know, when he wrote that he just happened to land on my family vacation photos on youtube via a quick google search).

That is fine but I until Howie does reply on this issue, I won't bother interacting with him on any issues he raises that don't relate specifically to Los Osos issues. I would prefer he make the choice to be polite and to participate fully in the discussion on the issues he raised (for example, that I am a hacker, etc.) but a discussion involves back-n-forth and give-n-take and a willingness to engage others on the questions they raise.

Howie raised some good questions about my past and I answered in an appropriate way, considering the facts. While he didn't like my answers, I did address the topic he raised. On the other hand, when I asked him a few questions he's stonewalled me.

That is not a discussion. Howie wants to be able to say stuff about me but is not interested in answering reasonable questions about a few of the somewhat threatening comments he's made. (Honestly, is there any reason to say I know where you live and I hope your little dog doesn't have any accidents and that sort of stuff ... and before anyone goes off on me for misquoting him, no those are not quotes ... give it a rest ... the key point is that there is no purpose for mentioning my kids or dog in any discussion here and to do so could easily be perceived as threatening when the person making the statement hasn't said that he knows me.)

Summary ... if Howie wants to talk, fine ... but otherwise, I see no need to engage with him. He's made a perception on anyone reading here ... whether good or bad. Of course, I reserve the right to remind folks of the key questions Howie refuses to address.
