There has been so much talk about John Colby lately I'm wondering if the negative publicity has elevated him to some sort of celebrity status.

He first became well known after he wrote a series of hard hitting investigative articles for Indybay, and people really listened to what he was saying. He has shed light on how poorly the homeless can be treated in our area, and what an injustice that is.

Now that there has also been such a negative reaction to those articles, mostly by local bigots, we wonder if the resulting polarization in the community has catapulted Colby to fame?

I was walking downtown today and a friend asked me, "You read a lot about local politics, who is this John Colby??????"

I laughed and explained he has certainly raised a lot of feathers here locally, especially with some of his pieces on police accountability.

I believe he is a real celebrity now. Keep spreading his name, a legend has been born!

Spamming to yourself and blithering on Indycrap doesn't make you A celebrity. So stop with the delusions of grandeur.

It means you have replaced Becky Whackjob as the biggest pile of roadkill in the history of the information superhighway.

And it doesn't change the fact that you're a miserable, unemployable section-8 loser, and a career parasite.

P.S. You can add "homeless advocate" to your mile-high pile of failures.

John Colby has become a celebrity with his Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requests carbon copied to U.S. senate subcommittees. His name is well known in Washington DC ask HUD.

They put your jibberish into the paper shredder, and after a good laugh said, "There's no shortage of KOOKS in Santa Cruz!!!".

Keep on repeating his name and making him famous! Not.

You've named yourself after him, can't you see the significance of that?

Gee, I wish ColbyLoon would hijack my name like he did to DBS and Buzz. It's so fitting as it defines him.

More examples of Colby worship! Colby's name has become a meme for the struggle to overcome cyberbullying.

Anyone worried about the "hijacking" of names, as you call it, can register their desired names with Topix. Those two you refer to (DBS and BUZZ) do not register their names because they make so many threats in these forums that they would be banned immediately and it would just be a waste of time for them. If you look at other threads, they talk about using internet routers to cahnge their isps to get around websites blocking them. The posta lot of threats and do a lot of cyberbullying and whatnot. Plus, if they officially register their names, they will have to supply Topix with personal information, and that will further expose them to criminal and civil liability for their actions in these forums.

Oh wait, you are DBS, you already know all of this lol

Interesting viewpoint. Can you similarly explain why John Colby has not registered with Topix? Or why he intentionally misleads readers by posting under the names of other posters with whom he disagrees?

Add racist to the list of words used to describe DBS. He is making racist statements about Native Americans in another thread.

He is 225 pounds, and he insults Becky for her weight.

His children go to Cabrillo, but he acuses other people of aceptng public assistance.

He publicized Becky's home address on Topix, and then went there and vandalized her property, which he has admitted to in other threads.

In other words, DBS is not a person to feel sorry for, he's a scumbag.

As far as I know, no one recently has posted on Topix claiming seriously to be John Colby. I think someone has used his name on here in a spoof, though. Also, it has not been verified in any way that Colby is posting on Topix, it is all speculation. And lastly, John Colby has not complained about his name being used in here, probably because the Topix trolls are making him famous.

John, your wild accusations are as erroneous and and highlight why HUD, the public officials of the city and county of Santa Cruz, as well as JS CO. who manages your section 8 apartment pay no attention to you and have written you off as a mentally ill crackpot. You, like BJ, have been corrected by other posters over and over again, but you rave on. You're certifiably nuts and not at all amusing. Your a sad and effective little man living off the work of others since you can't support yourself. Your envy has destroyed you.

I was surprised you are a racist. I would take back the racist statement and issue an apology to Topix users if I were you.

....and don't get yourself in a fit just because John Colby dominates you on Topix. You took Colby on and you lost. Story over. He handed you your ass to you on a platter. You are so desperate for attention now you have resorted to using racist slurs.

(A)I never posted BJ's information. She posted it on Indycrap, and another poster named Sum Dim reposted it to Topix.

(B)You obviously don't understand the meaning of the word vandalism. That requires property damage that requires repair that costs money.
(C) You have absolutely ZERO evidence that I had ANYTHING to do with the PRANK that cost nothing to repair.
(D) I have ONE(1) child in Cabrillo, and I paid ALL expenses with MY PAYCHECK. Plus I pay for Cabrillo's Bond expenses every time I pay my Property Tax bill. With MY PAYCHECK.
(E)Yes, I weigh 225 Lbs. That's normal for a large framed athletic male who spent many years lifting free weights and using Nautilus equipment. I still have a 33 waist.
(F) Any time you think a pussy like YOU has the sack to call me a scumbag to my face, you just tell me where and when. Consider that a standing offer.
(G) I'm done jousting with a mentally ill parasite like you. I've got much more productive things to be concerned with.

I am not, nor ever have posted as DBS. I agree with most of his posts regarding you and BJ for that matter.

You, John, are still an unemployed section 8 welfare bottom-feeder living off the scraps tossed to you by taxpayers. You make no contribution to society other than serving as a laughingstock that no sane person would wish to emulate.

Spending all day spamming excrement on Topix is no great accomplishment, John. I am happy you found your niche, King of Bovine Feces.

Wow!! This guy Colby sure sounds like a psycho. I would hate to make him mad and have him know where I live. It sounds as if he is living under delusions of adequacy. Is there anyone who cares enough in his life to see that he gets medical attention?
