Remember that moronic article that Dan Valenti wrote? Oh, right. I have to be more specific.

Valenti wrote an article about the alleged (and event "alleged" is a strong word in this regard)$2 million Golden Parachute received by Angelo Stracuzzi after resigning from Greylock FCU. Valenti, the upstanding journalist that he is (I puked in my mouth saying that!) used as his "source" an anonymous posting from Topix - a typical troll just making stuff up to goad other posters into a fury.

Sparing Valenti the insult of being a bad journalist and a liar, he was ignorant enough to believe this source and ran with it as actual claim from a credible source. Then Valenti treated this information as corroborated, as a respectable journalist (i.e. not Valenti) would do.

I spoke with two high-ups at the Eagle today (at lunch over our recent advertising campaign) and, while in addition to other considerations, that was the proverbial straw that broke the camel's back.

Dan Valenti Killed Topix. And I thank him for doing so!

I am Adam Smith.

This is funny. I spoke to my friends at the Eagle today and Dan Valenti has been calling for quotes regarding his "power" to shake up the C-level employees at the Berkshire Eagle.

Valenti is so full of himself. I am going to have to find a free copy of the Gazette (I wouldn't pay for that garbage) just to see how seriously he takes himself regarding this matter.

There's a reason no one has replied in this thread.
I bet you can't think of it.
The only reason I replied was to get you thinking about it.

I replied yesterday backing Valenti but alas it did not make the cut for some reason. Is someone still selecting what posts will hit the screen?

Because Valenti is COMPLETELY ARROGANT and you don't want to feed into his massive ego.

You know what, you are right. Now I feel bad for giving that narcisist something to feed off of.

Oh, I get it! You are using irony to be funny. You had not responded to this thread because I am correct - Topix is dead.

It's like a futuristic barren post-war wasteland where the only survivors are zombies shuffling through their miserable existence in desperate need for brains (you, Valenti, Gleason, other unmannered troglodytes), and the hero that exterminates you vermin (me).

Good one!

It helps if you aren't retarded. It's not difficult to post a comment. You are excellent evidence that even with enough practice even a 12-year old hermaphradyte with Down's Syndrome and and syphillictic brain can participate.

Way to not give up!

I am sorry I offended you sir. and yes I do have Down's syndrome and I apologize to you for that as well. I hate myself for making you angry with me.

word on everything. with an "end" to BE topix I thought we might finaly be done with that egotisticle/egotesticle maniacal critical offensive Mr.Smith, "I've got to have the last word on everything topix" and The end of BE topix is the best thing that ever happened." but, I see I was wrong.

Absolutely no person is disgusting enough to even think of that.

....unless they do it themselves. Is this Jimmy Gleason?

With the BE topix dead, threads like this make eating brains seem like a worthy cause. Although stroking ones own ego seems more selve serving than eating anothers brains. If they read the Eagle only perhaps the brain would be more tender.

Dang, I hit a nerve. Sorry.

Where are all these jobs that Mayor Roberto promised the people of Pittsfield in the last three elections?

Dan Valenti, given your newfound power for absolute and total destruction, what would it take for you to do a number on senior management at The Berkshire Eagle?
Let us know if you need help.
Any idea yet why Eagle publisher Andrew Mick won't publish the facts surrounding Angelo Stracuzzi's hasty departure from Pittsfield's business and political scene?
