$142,606 in five fiscal years, a decade later, and the only thing to show for it is a person who spends much of his day posting about "manboobs" and methamphetamine, while believing he has bested his detractors by copying their posts verbatim, transposing his name for theirs?

When is the unimaginative troll going to start a thread titled the "Cost of being DBS/Buzz". He really should have been born a parrot.

Hi, Pat.

I don't blame the funding agencies, as how were they to know that he would turn out the way he did?

How inconsiderate of you, Pat, to think about letters and funding agencies instead of the unfortunate student with disabilities who, had they been given that grant money instead of your brother, would have used their education in a far more effective manner than John is right now, as he seems to have earned that PhD simply for the title alone to stroke his ego rather than to better his (and yours, if he'd let you) living situation.

As a taxpayer, I am 100% behind the work John Colby does as an advocate for the homeless and an investigative journalist.

I was surprised at how fast he came on the scene and how he was able to get the mayor to debate him on television so easily.

I can't wait to see what his FOIA requests yield in the future.

I also love that he makes the Take Back Santa Cruz trolls go nuts lol

And just how do you supposed he does that if you claim you're not him and he doesn't post here? What Take Back Santa Cruz trolls, and how and where is John interacting with them?

I think he probably does post here now, he has been more obvious about it in the last month or so, but there is no proof that is him. It could be any one of you TBSC trolls spoofing him.

How about you show readers a "more obvious" post by John from that last month or so, since you seem to know about it?

Very, very interesting.
I wonder if the loon reported this "income" to HUD, Disability, Foodstamps and any other Agencies he has been ripping off during his "career".

We be thinking we'll send a copy of all the wasted money given to the welfare leech from the funding agency to HUD, and all of the numerous welfare agencies john Colby has criminally ripped off.

He's advocated for one, maybe two, people and he wasn't even validated by the folks he was attempting to persuade with his FOI's , "media blitz", or the single debate where the community is the judge, not himself.

What he's done is spam the same diatribe over and over again, that's what people berate him for. On top of that, not everyone that is a critic of the "workless wonder" is a TBSC member.

Speaking of which, the spam level by you has dropped. Hopefully you have more important issues to attend to than constant defense of a troll.
