"James Gagne commented on the post using an expletive, saying "... WindWise ... clean energy is good."

His post, which was sent to The Standard-Times by a group member, was deleted by the WindWise group administrator, who then posted on Facebook explaining that Gagne has written "a vile post" that "has since been deleted."

Gagne could not be reached for comment. His Facebook profile does not list the pro-turbine "Friends of Fairhaven Wind" as one of his "likes," but in its post the WindWise administrator (the group has three or four administrators) characterized him as a member of Friends of Fairhaven Wind and also mentioned Gagne is a member of the band Shipyard Wreck."

"WindWise member Kenneth Pottel said the group is looking into filing a complaint with the state's attorney general's office and Ethics Commission against Freitas for a breach of confidentiality. He also alleged that Freitas could have received his information from DeTerra in an effort to undermine those complaining of health impacts and sleep disruption from the turbines.

This week, Freitas was also banned from Facebook for 12 hours after WindWise members filed a complaint with the social networking site."
