How do YOU get to know your neighbors and neighborhood?

Do you walk around the neighborhood looking into the windows of their homes? And then, do you take photographs of their homes, their porches, Front doors, their mailboxes, their yards, their gardens, flowerbeds, swings, outbuildings, and other belongings and then post them on the internet with the locations and even at times the neighbors name.... WITHOUT the neighbor even being aware of this?

Would you want a neighbor like this in your neighborhood? And, if you already had one, how would you handle this situation if it happened to you? If your private life, your sanctuary were now seen from the eyes of a voyeur, would you feel violated or excited that you were one of the chosen one's?

What would your main concern over this be, or would you even have one? Could there be the "benefit" of having your privacy exposed in this manner and what would it be?

I do somewhat agree with you, with the whole keep drawing attention to her. But, I really do wonder how you would react, should you ever been at the other side of her wrath, trespassing, name-calling, etc.

And honestly, you popping into every thread and rebutting everyone is also, in fact, egging her on well.

I really feel like you are the child on the playground, who observes other kids being bullied and has the attitude of "who cares, it doesn't affect me".

Sure, we should just all leave it all alone, but leaving it alone makes it feel like everything she is saying and doing is ok and acceptable. Call it stupidity, call it stubborness, call it what you want...just like you, we all have the right to voice our opinions and if you don't like, then don't respond. We get your point already.

Red and Latrobean: here's what I see. I think Red hopes we can move past it, which we have in other posts, and is tired of having it unearthed. In saying that, I agree wholeheartedly with you Latrobean. In having my family and I been the crux of her cruelness, lies and viciousness, I can tell you, it won't be left alone in my book, because, unlike my husband, I don't forgive and forget. I will bide my time until she truly gives me a solid case to have several of my attorneys handle her. Red, I'm certain you are tired of it, but so is everyone else. People are frustrated. You, obviously, have never had to bear the brunt of her, as alot of us have. It's especially difficult when you are more known in the community. Her credibility speaks for itself, but it still is upsetting. Latrobean, thanks for understanding!!! Ted, when your privacy is invaded, it's quite an upsetting feeling for not just one person, but the entire family....

I'll just toss a good thought out here! It's taken a bit of time but, most friendships start out with that type of aquaintanceship (is that a word -- doesn't look right! lol) and build from there.

I've meet two good people this week whom I'd have never known had we not found the fellowship of injustice from Topix and its resident trouble-maker. We may or may not end up bff's but, I now have a few more people to smile at, greet, and swap a few words with if I run into them out about town, and THAT is a good thing!

The point is in the old cliche: There's a silver lining in every cloud!!! Sometimes you just have to look for it a bit!

And Redneck, why are you so upset? Are other people not allowed to open a thread to voice their take on an issue, especially given so many threads have been removed wherein this person COULD have responded without opening a new thread!

I'm not sure I understand why you're stance is so righteous when, with other issues, I've seen 5 or 6 threads started about the same topic for the simple purpose of Renee having such a strong need for her screen name to show up more often than any others and to bump her viewpoints to the top of the list, stuffing them down OUR throats for the kajillionth time in repetition, as if we didn't read them the first time!-- So very ridiculous to have a life's goal of having the most open threads going at the top of the Topix site! lmfao I've not seen you post "you just can't..." and call that person an idiot! Why now with this thread??? And don't you think there's more than plenty of name-calling on this site surrounding the toxic one without calling other posters an "idiot"???

Just sayin'...

I can understand your frustration and contempt for her, but do you think this Topix forum is the place to settle the problem?

All the infringements and infractions that you listed should/could be handled away from this venue. Carrying on the fight in here just seems to make things worse for you (and others) and better for her.

I'm not demeaning you or your concerns, but you only have yourself to blame for more of the same by rehashing it in here...over and over and over and over. And after all of it...your nemesis gets more satisfaction than you. You have an end pont that needs to be reached for closure...she just needs to play the game and keep it going. Who in here doesn't know of her and her reputation? As far as the schoolyard bully analogy...if you keep throwing stones at him/her, then you're going to get more of the same back at you. Who then is more the instigator?

You (and others) are enabling her.

Sometimes one has to write it out, share it, in order to see it, and grasp the concept of it all.

Redneck, may I ask....how WOULD you feel if you had a neighbor like this, and YOUR privacy, or the even the privacy of your unsuspecting friends or neighbors, was being invaded over and over and over again? Even though you tried to approach the subject and ask kindly that you not be involved in the so called "project?" It was like you were talking to a wall? No respect for you at all.
How would you honestly feel and how would you deal with it?

and one more thing Redneck...you may think that by not seeing it in here (Topix) that it has, or could just disappear. To the contrary...actually just gotten worse, but no way to limit the behavior there.
What is especially disturbing to me are the unsuspecting "likes" of the other page, whom have now placed their identity wide open to her. Certainly a helpless feeling of concern from me, to all of them, after what was witnessed here for months on end.

Ted: Adding to the comment, the blatent disregard and purpose-filled methods of going way out of the way to cause such grief, for example, her posting her yard sale flyer on my door last Sunday! I'm sitting in my house WATCHING this creature come up and tape it to my storm door after having told her so very many times to NEVER trespass on my property!!! Since she's posted my first name and directions to my home and since she clearly knows we're all aware of this yard sale, WHY the need to do that other than to taunt and goad and create little tornados and ill-will with people in the neighborhood.

Even if one tries to leave her alone, she just won't allow it!!! So Redneck, if responding in Topix is our only avenue to vent about the frustration of it all, I suspect it's better than someone going to jail for murder, don't you think? I'm sure the thought has crossed several minds but she's not worth the jail time so we'll continue to use this site so we DON'T go postal!!!

You'll have to find a way to cope with that, Redneck! For myself though, I will apologize once again that I'm guilty of your charges against us. I'm sure none of us really enjoy it anymore than you do!

After all this time, it isn't you or your family that has to defend or promote yourselves. Especially at the accusations of one who has established a less than credible reputation. What started out as a questionable concern regarding a new buisness has degraded and morphed into a ten-headed monster. Through the months of conversations that have festered and taken on lives of their own, credibiltiy and integrity has been established among the different factions.

You and/or your husband's reputation have not suffered from her accusations, at least in my opinion (and I'm sure most others). The true acid test will be made known years from now after the new city manager has a chance to prove himself. We will see how far he gets in transforming Latrobe into a better place.

The Lattanzio family has proven itself over the years as being good people and good businessmen. It would take someone of much greater esteem to disparage that family's reputation, and that of your immediate family.

Don't become your own worst enemy by thinking that no one else can see through the antagonistic bullshit. IMHO regarding responding to her taunts from this point on...less is more.

To be perfectly honest, I thouight you were FWR taking on another identity and tact to bring up the same stuff again. Her taking on the persona of a victim is not so far-fetched.

That was the reason for my first reply to you.

I can't say for sure how I would handle all the situations you described. Maybe I wouldn't want to say it in here because if all legal and proper channels were exhausted without resolution, then other means might be used...but I would not rely on any resolve being avhieved in here. This is more of an incubator of trouble than a cure.

I think it is just best for everyone to go on as if Renee doesn't exist on here. Honestly, she has tried (and succeeded) to turn this forum into a tome about her. Just let it go.

And as far as anyone being concerned about the people who have friended her on that other site and now have someone peeking into every aspect of their online lives, they made that choice, just as I did and came to regret it. They will, as I have, live and learn.

Now, to the topic at hand, I talk to people. I talk to my waiters/waitresses, cashiers, fast food workers, people who walk by my house. I engage people in conversations whenever possible. And, it doesn't hurt that my house has pear trees and people were coming to my door last fall to ask if they could pick some.

I totally see your point Andrea and I agree to a point. When it's YOUR decision to choose WHO to share your life with, isn't that what it's all about? When someone ELSE is making that decision for you, this is when it's total BULL and disrespectful, especially involving those whom are COMPLETELY unaware of it. TOTAL INVASION of a person's PRIVACY!

I guess I just have too much respect for others and try to treat others the way I would want to be treated.

Rick always says ignore it. So does Logan. I think we were all enjoying actually talking about assorted topics, maybe that's the route I should go... Ignore it. Although I did respond on another post, as my temper went from 0-60... Ughhh

I am with you Mindy...I will take the higher road, and simply 'attack when attacked'. We all know the Stadlers and Lattanzios as good, solid people and well, her, as a nut - so really no need to give her any credence anymore.

My point is pretty simple... She isn't forcing anyone to friend her on that other site. Now, if they make the decision to friend a page not knowing the owner of said page and their information is used against them, then buyer beware, Right?

Were you elected the defender of all? Should you point out to someone that their informations, house's image and whatever else is being put out there on the internet? Absolutely. Should you scream to the heavens on a message board and make it all about her bad behavior? No.

I have always likened her ( go back and read the posts) to a 3 year old that wants attention and doesn't care if they have to break a vase to get it. Should she attack people, no. Should people keep harping on it? No. Just ignore it, honestly. Her credibility is nil. Respect levels for her are next to nothing. Her existence on this board can become null and void if people would just let it go.
