I got permission to repost this by the author who posted this in a private Facebook group.
Wow! This is unbelievable. As many of you know I post as Grasshopper on the Wordpress blogs. I posted the following this morning knowing it would not be approved:
"So, I'm on to you. Mark Rathbun is not running this blog anymore. I don't know what you did to him and his family, but I will tell you that despite these videos, which remind me of the North Korean propaganda videos from the Korean War, the overwhelming evidence of how corrupt the church is, and the destruction of the tech, will live on. In your case, you can't erase the idiocy of the "Squirrel Busters" hounding Rathbun for months and months, and the idiotic video of the SO execs hounding Rathbun at the airport, etc., etc. I don't know what you did to make Rathbun turn on people who were his friends, but I have to think it is far worse than the squirrel busters caper.
But I'm on to you. You pushed it too far, and now these videos are just evidence of Mark's surrender. Cheers."
Guess what happened? My comment was replaced by a long, long diatribe against Tony O and the Village Voice. It was not me who wrote that. But it's under my ID because they just deleted my text and replaced it with theirs.
Unbelievable! What other proof do you need that Marty is no longer in charge of his blog?
Tony, as you know I have my issues with you, but it wasn't me that posted that shit on Rathbun's blog under my ID. My lord.
He told me the same thing had happened with at least two other posters, too.
EDIT: And the post put under Grasshopper's name was also posted under someone ELSE'S name a couple of entries down.
God, they can't help but fuck everything up.
If Marty is not doing this, and there being as many avenues out here on the net to respond, why hasn't Marty come forward somewhere else to point this out? To quote a line from Shawn Phillips: And more's the same to stand by while it's happening.
