Leigh Meyers (normally considered to be an "approved" poster on indybay) posted the terms of use and commenting policy, then simply asked why his comment was deleted.

In response, that comment has since been deleted itself.

Indybay's heavy-handed censorship and deletion of comments renders the site as only serving one side of each story instead of being a legitimate venue for objective journalism.

When posters link to indybay articles, intentionally or not, they are effectively steering readers to a place where any dissenting voices are suppressed, threatening freedom of speech and reducing any conversation which does not conform to the approval of the moderators.

Please remind others of this when you see links to such indybay articles.

Gotta love how they censor every post they don't like, while the bellow about THEIR rights to "Free speech".!!!!

And the fastest way to get censored, is to point out that Robert won't spend a single penny of his inherited millions to help the people he pretends to care so much about.

The fact is that Indybay is worse than Topix, in terms of "journalistic integrity" AND in terms of actual being a successful media website.

Let's break it down in the most simplistic terms so that even John Colby can understand it.

On Topix:

People can disagree and not be moderated for pretty much any reason.

On IndyBay:

People can't disagree without being moderated for no apparent reason.

On Topix:

They run lots of ads so they obviously make money. Success.

On Indybay:

They beg for spare change and don't get anything back. Fail.

On Topix:

There is true freedom of speech, for better or worse.

On IndyBay:

There is freedom of speech if certain people agree with it. In other words, there is no freedom of speech.

Don't get me wrong, as a "news" site, Topix is crap. But that makes IndyBay less than crap.

There's no reason to visit either website unless you want a laugh, both are not nearly as important as some believe. If kooks can't handle heckling, they should spread their wings and see how bad other forums can be - gaming forums can be heavily moderated but the heckling is understood for what it is, poking fun at stupid people. There are no threats of legal notice by anonymous failures that think their interpretation of the law is how it works out in the justice system. The best part of that type of threat is: you can't threaten legal action when you do the exact thing you are reporting to the authorities. That's a great way to stick your foot in your mouth, though.

I disagree with you, Sum Dim.

Topix has deleted hundreds of my posts, all by the request of trolls like DBS and Buzz.

DBS had a post of mine deleted that made fun of his manboobs.

Becky Johnson was laughing at him about it in a comment, and minutes later he complained and it was gone.

For further reading about John Colby....

John Colby has a total life time work history of 2.5 years. A 22 year history of mooching off the federal and state governments. He exhibits antisocial and stalking behaviors and placed the so-called "clients" he advocates for at risk due to his negligent actions. He was evicted from Mission Garden Apartments on September 20, 2013. The eviction notice he posted on the internet says he was guilty of:

•Disrupting liveability
•Adversely affecting health, safety and right to quiet enjoyment
•Adverse financial effect on project
•Ongoing harassment of other tenants
•Photographing female caregivers after dark
•False complaints and harassment of staff
•False accusations
•Gathering and publishing personal data
•Publishing personal “genealogical analysis” and “family tree’ of staff and family
•Stalking behavior
•Hostile confrontations
•Aggressive interrogation
•Hostile and inappropriate interactions
•Hang-up phone calls to staff’s home numbers
•Loudly discussing (threatening)“going postal”
•Frightening staff
•Harassment of residents
•Causing multiple unreasonable expenditures
•Making multiple false and baseless complaints
•Require substantial management time and resources

He was evicted from the "Citizens for a Better Santa Cruz" group. In an email to Robert Kahn-Job on November 25, 2013, Steve Pleich stated his reasons for evicting him:

"John consistently attacks those whom he deems to be engaged in some unlawful or secretive enterprise without any foundation in fact whatever. These arguments are always subject to evidence he thinks he will discover through the requests for public records that never seem to yield the substantive proof he needs. By contrast and to be fair, when you criticize or take exception to something, your arguments invariably contain some facts in support or, at least, some scintilla of evidence. I did not create CFAB SC as a forum for John's ceaseless screed about how unfair the world seems to him personally and as a whole; He has two perfectly serviceable facebook pages of his own to publish and pursue that agenda.

By the way, the final "tipping point" for me was John's most recent attack post in which he attributed his facts in support to a "tipster"; his word, not mine."

John Colby REALLY needs help.

You are right, DBS, it couldn't have been you who reported that post, it must have been the same person who bought your house for you, the Tooth Fairy!!!

The Tooth Fairy gave DBS a house???

Seriously though it was hilarious to see Becky find out for the first time that DBS is obese. He has been calling her "fat" for years in online forums, and she had the last laugh....DBS is nearly twice her weight and he has manboobs!

DBS has stalked Becky Johnson for FOUR YEARS

Background on Buzz.....

DANGEROUS TEACHER IN SCOTTS VALLEY: Click on the following link to read abusive posts by "Buzz", but be prepared, they are very lewd:

Archive for abuse posts/incest allegations by Buzz:

http://www.topix.com/forum/city/santa-cruz-ca...

THIS A WARNING FOR ALL PARENTS, THERE IS A POSSIBLY ABUSIVE TEACHER/PREDATOR IN THE COMMUNITY: Please read this post for important safety information about an individual who says he is a teacher in Scotts Valley. Topix user "Buzz" posts about incest, and incest is no joking matter, it is a sign of abuse in the family. He has been posting these abusive comments by the hundreds as he stalks a well known advocate for homeless people and his sister in the Santa Cruz community. Please distribute this information widely!

Buzz says he has been teaching for 40 years and he is Scotts Valley based. Buzz is his nickname and it refers to the large appetite he had when he was a kid. He claims to have a master's degree and he says he went to UCSC. Buzz is most likely in his early to mid 60s, and he has said he weighs over 225 pounds, and he is over 6'2", but he may have changed his appearance recently.

Buzz says he is retired on pension, Social Security, and investments. He says he owns a home valued at $800,000 and has $500k saved + the equity in that home. He has a wife of 39 years and two successful adult children, large extended family and friends. He has also said, "the letters I receive from UC-Berkeley are addressed to "Dr. Buzz"" which implies he has a doctorate, though he contradicts that when says he has a master's degree.

Buzz's wife graduated from UCSC in 1977.....

"Buzz: My wife, UCSC '77, got her teaching credential at San Jose State the year after graduated from UCSC. It took me also one year postgraduate work for my first credential."

Here is an example of one of his abusive posts:
"What do you call your diddling your big fat sister, John? Your neighbors have complained quite a bit about it, so there is probably something to it. I can easily see why over 30 of your neighbors had signed a position calling for your eviction. You are sure one sick, perverted puppy, John."

What you call "research" is what the rest of the world calls stalking.

Any therapist or psychiatrist who encounters you gets rid of you as quickly as possible. Gives you a prescription for therapy cats and sends you on your way.

Are you happy with your life as a cyberstalker? Or has it caused problems for you?

How do you see you behaviour?

Let's all do the math together (again)

You state that DBS weighs 225 lbs and is "nearly twice" the weight of BJ

225 lbs/2=112.5lbs
112.5x2=225

Are you seriously stating that BJ weighs 112.5 lbs?

On the Infraction that BJ was stupid enough to make public on Indycrap:

It listed her address, DOB and height/weight.

She's 5-1 and weighs 180.

And what about FAT Pat's dimensions?

She's so hideously obese, she ate herself into being disabled.

All at Taxpayer's expense.

190

Remember when BECKY herself posted a photo of her citation on Indybay? The one that included her address ( What kind of moron posts a photo online with their current address clearly displayed so that some disgruntled Indybay anarchist wannabe can go stuff fruit in her tailpipe??). On the citation it gave her weight.

190.

I thought it was 190. But the handwriting was not clear so it could be either.

But in the grand scheme of things 180 and 190 are not that far apart.

Well I see only three important points I need to make here.....

1- DBS is clinically obese, and at 235 pounds he shouldn't be calling anyone else "fat" except himself if he chooses to use that kind of language with himself. I am trying not to call him fat, but its hard when he is such a hypocrite about it.

2- I have no idea what Becky weighs now, but it sure isn't 180 or 190. She's tiny.

3- DBS has all but admitted he was the one who went to Becky's house and vandalized her property. You trolls publicized her address here, and you are the ones who have called her "BJ" and "fat" hundreds of times. You are also the same group who threatens her (and others) with violence in other online forums. This thread starts with Sum Dim talking about cutting people's balls off or some such nonsense, and there are other examples of violent threats made by DBS and others throughout topix.

Tell me when this thread is updated:
