We did start this group as a way to help people, and it turned into a source of income for some. I would shut the thing down in a minute but a lot of people have put a lot of time into getting their stuff ready and posting it on here, and I respect their time and effort. Yes, I said stuff on the site that I shouldn't have. The thing is I know an apology is not going to help at all, because if I apologized it wouldn't be good enough or the words wouldn't be the exact words that I was expected to say, and I would be expected to add to it and post it on regular FB, and the yard sale site and the wall of everyone in the group and so on and so forth. The point is what's done is done. If anyone want's to press any charges that's up to them. I myself have checked on slander charges, and I think I have a case. My livelihood was questioned. That is a line that shouldn't be crossed, especially by someone who works with the public themselves. It could come back to bite you. I just want this to die down, but with the parties involved that won't happen soon. The fact that it was even put on Topix says tells a lot about the drama that people thrive on. And the term CEO makes me laugh, especially since this term has been thrown at me before. Last time I checked CEO's got a paycheck and benefits, and had the power to fire people. I don't have or want any of that, I just want the drama mongers to shut up. I am using my real name because I have NEVER hid behind a screen. I guess that's one thing that sets me apart from the crowd. I am a big girl and I will answer for my actions. I won't like about things I may or may not do. If I say something you can take that as a promise that it is what I have done.

i think this has went to far, however greg millie and a kid were cussing equally as bad as the whiteheads. they were not deleted from the yardsale page and the whiteheads were. that is not fair to the people involved in this or to the people who had to read all of it. anything like that should not be allowed. no matter if it is a cousin niece or boyfriend. if somebody talked to my kid that way i would kick there ass. the private messaging thing was not even like they all were saying. the girl only private messaged to let them no on the things she wants she will put want on the things her mom wants she would put her initals. nothing to do with getting something first or for a better deal. all somebody had to do was ask not start accusing and cause all this drama. it's a yardsale page not a place to flirt or tell somebody you love them and stuff. there is way to much of that going on. that stuff is personal

why can't you come out from behind your computer and stop hiding behind a screen name. I know for a fact Lisa or Millie, or any of them would say any of this to your face just tell them when and where.

I didn't even know about any of these latest developments when I put my post on here. This is an opinion post and I exercised my right and voiced my opinion. But this is my point exactly....I don't need nor do I want any of the cry baby b.s. that goes along with that site. And just for the record I'm not a member currently, and never have bought anything from anyone. I was a member at the very start for about a month and I saw all of the high school non-sense unfolding so I politely bowed out. Just like I will here. Like I said this is an opinion site and I've had mine!! Like one of the other post said, the yard sale sites are for yard sale items and not a personals column. Another good point made by one of the other posts.....It is so ridiculous to go to calling and threatening with THE LAW!!!! Hell if the law worked on sorting out peoples personal pathetic bullshit they'd never get to work anything else. I say they're busy enough w/o a bunch of gossiping, whinny ass women that treat a yard sale site like it was life or death..I'm afraid of what'll end up taking place especially now that some "men" feel the need to lower themself to this nit picking, hen pecking craziness!!!Some don't handle that kinda stuff with talk and posts. Most "men" around here handle threats and aggression towards their family with physical retaliation! With that being said-I'm outta here....I'm sure you all will do a good job tongue beating each other to death w/o my continued opinion..I do hope no one ends up getting hurt over this foolishness!!!Grow up-and again like I said in my initial post(w/o calling any names), you all know who this applies to and if you're not guilty you'll think nothing of this post-Will you?(**I GOTTA LOL)!

i agree the drama is terrible, but its no all the "CEO" fault. The some of the rules are silly, but i know she meant well and was trying to be fair. Plus she only made the rules because members of the "club" were complaining. I think if some people in roan mountain didnt expecet special treatment this problem wouldn't have happend. Plus if Rhonda and Savannah would keep thier loud mouths shut. I don't think it was right Savannah got called a bitch, but what ya do? She was asking for it.
By the way rhonda, its hilarious that you hide behind the carter county sheriffs department. HAHA like they will do anything. I bet they know you when you call. hahahaha AND after that blow up, You and Savannah were continuing to complain on regular facebook. Lisa hadn't said anything. So we see who started it and continued to complain and threat. Does the ROAN MOUNTAIN ONLINE YARDSALE really mean that much to you???
I did not continue to complain on regular facebook go ahead an look an see. I have not posted anything since late Thursday night. And look I am posting my real name because unlike you I am not afraid to post my name on here nor do I hide behind a computer screen like you apparently do. I did not start this drama on Topix nor did I start it on the yard sale site. You are not worth explaining things to anyways. Things were settled with the little disagreement Lisa Potter said ok an Thank you it was over then Millie Gardner had to start an that then led to Greg Williams starting his mouth an yes the entire time they were talking to my 17 year old daughter not me. and who said i was hiding behind anyone you are the one hiding i am out in plain view for the world to know my name. I don't have to hide behind the sheriffs dept they are hiding behind us all. Do you really think these sites go unmonitored? Little do you know then. An by the way have you seen where I have posted someones name an posted a threat to that person no you have not what you have seen is that I am following the proper channels so why don't you stop being the inmature person you are an come out from behind your computer screen an show us all your pretty little face

My say, you are a freakin' circus side show. I have been on here since the start too, and I know the drama you have caused. You and your daughter are two of the trashiest skanks that RM has ever had the misfortune of knowing. I thought you had a son too but maybe I am mistaken. Oh well, since you are not going to flap your tongue on here anymore you won't see this. I did however notice that you put a few posts on your daughter's Face Book, so I guess you are not good at withdrawls, which I don't fully understand since this site is full of teen drama and childish nonsense. Are you needing a drama fix?? Oh well I have never participated in the famed yard sale,although I have been a member since Feb. but I might. All this publicity has intrigued me. Thanks for the info on a cool site.
I am not the person who started this first post on topix i am not hiding behind a computer screen as you are. How can we be trashy skanks when we don't get out an whore around an wear skany trashy clothes. Yes I do have a son if that is any of your concern.Why would I be going through withdrawls from my daughter when I have always been a good parent an my children have always lived with me? You are apparently the one needing a drama fix cause well you made this post. By all means participate in the yard sale site I could care less I hope you get lots of great deals. Its a good place to find great items at a great price. Your more than welcome for the info an the site is really a good place to find items. Happy Shopping

If you think I am the person who was commenting towards you I was not. Unlike other ppl on here I am posting my real name I have no need to hide behind a screen name. I will say that yes sometimes the law does need to come into play when there are being threats thrown out there. As I posted time an time again me nor anyone in my house hold have threatened to kill or shot or do anything of that nature to anyone. I however am concerned about the out come of all of this if it does not stop. you ppl sit behind your computer screens stirring up shit an not having to pay the consequences that goes along with it.I guess you could say you add fuel to the fire because thats what you thrive on doing or well you would not have started this thread. I however would like for ppl to shut the hell up about it an move on with their lives. It is point less but I will not sit back an not say a word when ppl continue to run their mouths about me or anyone in my family so please if you have something to say to me come to my house come to my face an get out from behind your computer an we can work things out other wise keep your thoughts to your self because you apparently don't know the entire story

I just want to say I would really appreciate it if people would stop this. I never post on Topix, but was told that there were things on here about the Yard Sale. The only other time I have ever been on here was a few years back when someone said something about one of my daughters, and then, like now I used my real name. If you don't want to be in the Yard Sale you don't have to. Yes, I know some of the rules don't seem to make sense, but they were incorporated as situations arose. I don't like the personal attacks against people. Like I said, I said things that I wish I could take back, but I said them and I can't take them back, but I can apologize and I do apologize. Being tired and frustrated clouded my judgement. I have it stated in the rules that law enforcement does monitor the site, but that's mainly for stolen merchandise, they aren't playground monitors. They have much more important things to do besides breaking up fights over a pair of shoes or a T shirt, and I know they don't care if we call each other names. Like I said I would shut the site down in a minute but the volume on the page is simply too much to let go to waste. People have a lot of time and effort invested. Also, in closing I would like to say that no one should question people's parenting skills. We all love our kids and would do anything for them. Rhonda is no exception. That was a cheap shot against her "Daisy June" and it was uncalled for. Drama is like a monster...If you keep feeding it, it will grow, but if you stop it will die. Thank You

Thank you for seeing exactly what happened on the page that night an that was exactly what happened. My daughter was at work on her phone when she started wanting the items due to time an phone issues she went through an put rw for what she thought I would want yes she did pm the seller which alot of ppl do yes i think it's against the rules the same as cussing trouble making harassing an long list of other things. Yes she was wrong in doing that yes she let it go told the seller to remove my initials an the want that was put on the items an sale them to someone else who needed or wanted them it was worked out Lisa potter said ok an thank you then Millie started so from there it spiraled out of control fast. Because of my daughters sweet nature they assumed the potty mouth they were arguing with was me which was not true. Yes my daughter cussed like a sailor an that display of public stupidity is honestly the first an worst thing she has ever done. She was caught on a really bad day she had literally had a huge argument with a adult an came from that straight to this so this added major fuel to her raging fire an she started blasting back because the argument she had just walked out of she felt she had no choice but to take it an say nothing but when the name calling started she had posted that they were talking to her not me. Adults have no right under any circumstances to speak to minors like that when they were unsure if it was her or me they should have not called her name. The butch comment is the one name that really hurt the most because she is not. She has the reputation of not putting out like so many girls do an most everyone knows that about her so the butch comment made her feel that since she has the not putting out reputation that people would think of her as being a lesbian which she is not. Savannah is
a outstanding young lady. It was a bad day for
her all around.

Rhonda & Savannah are anything but "skanks."
This is the definition of a skank.

Derogatory term for a (usually younger) female, implying trashiness or tackiness, lower-class status, poor hygiene, flakiness, and a scrawny, pockmarked sort of ugliness. May also imply promiscuity, but not necessarily. Can apply to any race, but most commonly used to describe white trash.

I don't recall them being ANY of those!!

This is the most ridiculous argument I've ever witnessed. Lisa, yes, you are a control freak and you take the rules WAY too seriously and too far, it's an online yard sale for God sake, with that said I always liked you and think your a good person, but I'm so tired of seeing you threaten to take down the site. It is cracking me up. Everyone knows you are just huffing and puffing making empty threats so that people will run and cry to the mighty CEO begging to keep the site (because for some poor people they are so little this is all they have)That site is your kingdom, you won't take it down a bit more than you'll poop rainbows. And honestly, I truly hope that the way that Greg talked to a 17 year old serves as a warning to you, to run far and fast from that toothless wonder. The only other thing I have to say is, Rhonda you should be using the word "and" not "an". An is a indefinite article in the English language "and" is a grammatical conjunction, a part of speech that connects two words, phrases, or clauses - the later is the one you should be using. None of this crap is any of my business, but since it seems to be on every computer screen I look at all the time, I thought I'd put my 2 cents in.

See this is my point exactly, you are being very defensive when all I was doing was giving you advice. Wow, I see when people are trying to help you or help you understand the more you post the worse it get's on this thread and here you are getting very defensive and call me a freaking idiot. Thanks appreciate it. I love how classy you can be. Continue on with yourself, do what you want, I was just trying to get you to understand. You are rude and now that you have been very rude and calling me names, I see how you truly are. Good luck with defending yourself and your daughter, you said earlier you wish this thread would die down and you still continue to defend yourself. Go ahead, I don't care what you do.
