I thought it was hilarious, though, when you told them your real name is Sandy!
See you at the next Parents Group meeting!
Told who? And what assumed name was she supposedly using? Any why would anyone care what her 'real' name is?
You're going off the rails, John.

Ed Natol was questioning her on topix and trying to find out more info about her.

He's just another TBSC stalker as far as I'm concerned.

Where was I asking about information on her? All I asked was when was this meeting where everybody in TBSC hurt her feelings so badly that she logged into topix to go "nyah nyah nyah, I quit take back today."

I doubt there was any such meeting and I doubt there's any such "Sandy". Why would I try to stalk a person that I don't even believe exists?

https://www.indybay.org/newsitems/2013/08/29/... [/QUOTE]

You are really melting down psycho loon. The 10 days until your eviction and no place to go has you peeing in your Depends(generic)!
But a quick review of your history makes it clearer.

John E Colby who frequently posts as Reality Check and also has been known to post as DBS, Buzz, Check on Reality, Donny B, endless bummer, hijacked these names from posters who have offended him by commenting on his crackpot posts. He prefers Reality Check because it is the opposite of the dope/fueled, delusional world that he inhabits.

In his real life, John is an angry, whiny, unemployed, delusional paranoid psychotic who lives with his morbidly obese sister Pat and two incontinent cats in the Mission Gardens section 8 housing on Grandview in Santa Cruz.

John possesses an enormous, but totally unjustified ego. He claims to have a PhD from UCSC, but lives on public assistance. All the above is verifiable from letters written to IndyBay, Metro Santa Cruz, Topix, the Santa Cruz Sentinel and the San Jose Mercury News. He started on a tirade about meth. He brought meth into almost every thread he posted til it became ludicrous, and he still kept going. MAYBE this is why he's such a mess today.

John's "job" is trying to control all the Topix threads with time outs where he barrages city and county leaders with demands--none of which get serious consideration. He's sent out many complaints to HUD about his section 8 housing and has an ongoing war with JS Co who manages his complex. He's complained for over 3 years, but there he stays. Over 30 of his neighbors signed a petition to have him evicted, alleging he was a threat to children. Unfortunately, John is in a protected class and his neighbors are stuck living next to a ticking time bomb (my opinion).

John also loves to accuse his critics (people he doesn't know except for their posting names which he hijacks) of using meth, being on welfare, being unemployed and doing criminal acts of which there is no evidence. What's the term for someone who projects all his failings on to someone else?

Because you are in the habit of making rude comments like this.

She quit Take Back Santa Cruz, but that doesn't mean she deserves your insults or your flame posts directed at her.

Frankly, I doubt you even live in the area, Ed, but I do know your heavy handed questioning of prospective TBSC members appears to weed out the more compassionate of those who try to get involved.

Great Googlie Mooglie, the stupid, it burns.

It's all very noble that you're willing to step up and take the (usually well deserved) beatings for others, but you should look to yourself and make sure that you don't look like a total moron first before covering for somebody else.

Feel no pity for "Sandy", she knew what she was getting into. It's even in her first post in this thread where she thanks you for letting her know what a sewer this place is. But I guess you didn't do a good enough job. What did she and you think was going to happen with an inflammatory post like that. Where you looking, as one poster put it, for a parade? Should we alert the media that a made up person got their feelings hurt? That post is a classic troll. The beat down is the only result that can be expected.

As for your doubts - that implies that you thought about it, and we've already established that when you try to think that it only makes you look rock stupid. Just to clear it up, the house is on the westside, about a block off Western. Paid off, prop 13 taxes and a peek of ocean if I lean out far enough. Wouldn't trade it for the world. But thanks for asking.

As for your last sentence - that's the one that makes me wonder if the time not spent here spamming the board finds you with your head in a sack huffing brake fluid. It's the only explanation as to why you come across as somebody who has a puffball for a brain. Here it is in small words so you can try to keep up. I do not question prospective members. I am not a member of tbsc, although my pardner is. And "Sandy" isn't a prospective member. She is a made up EX member who trolled that her feelings got hurt, remember?. Honestly, I can not believe how fcuking stupid you are.

As a treat, a short excerpt from a song from Jonathan Coulton. It goes out to a certain special someone, and I think you know who you are...

"You set the trap
You lie in wait till someone trips the wire
Then you jump out to get your feelings hurt
And you act surprised
How did that get there?
Why does everybody hate me?

We're all familiar with the tragedy of being you
It's hard to show you any sympathy when all you do is beg for pain
Baby, someone is crazy and it's you
Someone is crazy and it's you
Someone is crazy and it's you"

I'm sorry to say that I dont see anything very substantial to reply to in this, Ed.

Have you responded yet to my question about why there is no predator alert for TBSC member Dylan Greiner on the Take Back Santa Cruz website?

Do you really think Maffei is more dangerous than molester Greiner?

Hasn't Maffei been exonerated in your eyes yet?

Why did TBSC members go to Maffei's court appearance, but not
Greiner's?

That is a nice photo of Take Back Santa Cruz at Maffei's first court appearance. Which one is you, Ed?

Crickets from Mr Natol on these important issues.

I'm guessing he is one of those pictured in the Sentinel photo at the Maffei hearing and he doesnt want to admit how butt stupid he was for going.

Geez dude, give a guy a chance to get home and have some supper. Some of us don't have the free time that you seem to.

I did respond to your question. But since it semms that you missed it, I'll answer it again. Perhaps the reason there is no predator alert is that Greiner poses _zero_ threat to the community. He's not on the street, and I doubt he will be for a long time. We're safe from him.

I'm not sure why you dragged Maffei into this. Honesty, I was giving him about the same ammount of attention as I was to Greiner, that is none. If he thinks he can make a claim against the county, then more power to him. And no, I'm not in that photo. But thanks for playing.

Speaking of crickets, I had some questions to you that you never seem to have gotten around to, but this seems to be a good time.

1- Where have I called you Colby?
2- where have I spammed the sentinel forums?

You say I have, but I can't seem to find it, so please feel free to point it out. I doubt you're be able to, so that either makes you stupid, or a liar. I don't know which one is more pathetic. And as a bonus question...

3- Is OSC or TBSC more effective at effecting change (good or ill) in Santa Cruz?

John fully understands your point that Griener is locked up and no threat to society. If he acknowledged that, he couldn't keep bumping the threads with his "predator alerts". John will never let "facts" interfere with his dope-fueled fantasy agenda.

Don't let him waste your time----you have a life and things to do, he doesn't. He hasn't let his imminent eviction interfere with his trolling.

Your whole life is a guessing game, proof is here on Topix. Who is that? Why did they do that? What should they do? How should they do it? I guess they don't want to be a righteous SOB like me!

Take Back Santa Cruz dragged Maffei into this by posting predator alerts about him on their website and by going to his court appearance as a group.

The SCPD is asking that the public gets the word out about Take Back Santa Cruz member Dylan Greiner so that more families can assess whether their children were victimized by him.

Take Back Santa Cruz so far has refused to honor this request by the Santa Cruz Police Department, and TBSC wont even bother to post a predator alert for him on their website like they did for Maffei, an innocent man.

The rest of your questions are off-topic.

John E. Colby you are a lying shitpile.

Several members of TBSC have made major efforts to help the SCPD, and no-one has refused to cooperate.

But you wouldn't know about it, because you've been booted out of their FB group for being a Whackjob.

Just like MGA.
