I couldn't agree more. When I first got on this sight, it was to catch up on what's going on in utica. I figured I'd get a better idea from regular people than from WKTV or O.D. I quickly learned this is not the case. Many people I know have been unfairly slandered or worse just because they are in the public eye. I found myself trying to defend these people that I care about. I also quickly realized all this did was exacerbate the problem by encourageing more negative responses. I know this post probably won't change a thing, but I wish there would be more informational and interesting topics on this site. I'm all for free expression, but this site has degenerated into small town tabloid gossip.

I agree wholeheartedly with everyone. To use this as a public forum to trash people, on some occasions the person posting may not even personally know,is disgraceful.I realize everyone has a right to free speech, but it is amazing to discover how many ignorant, and misinformed folks there are who have nothing better to do than sit in front of their computer and slam people. All the while doing this under the veil of anonymity.Some of the psotings can be quie amusing on occasion as people make complete fools of themselves without even realizing it.

from this area? It's been a backstabbing city since I can remember. So nothing here should be different.
Instead of promoting the area, people must read this and shake their head and never would want to step a foot into this city.
But it is nice to see that the ones that post all the negative are the ones with the most in their closet.
Only 3 more years here in upstate NY....can't wait....imagine leaving all this behind, it will be like a breath of fresh air.

true, but maybe they should find a different venue in which to defame people, their character and their families. I am all for calling someone out on something if it is deserved and needs to be brought to the people's attention.

However personal attacks are a different matter entirely. I think there should be legal ramifications. Freedom of speech? Of course. Defamation of character? Slander, libel? Those are criminal offenses and should be treated as such. Period. Someone needs to regulate and monitor these boards. People have gone WAY over the line to the point of it affecting people's children. That is just morally repugnant and well, WRONG!!!!

Who's kids....and how are they affected if the parents moniter their web time like they should. Or are you talking about families who let the TV and computer be the babysitters? Or allow the children around when adult conversations are taking place. I don't see how children are affected if the parents are doing their jobs and watchin their kids.

You are a dumbass... seriously. Think about it for a second, if your brain can hold it together for that long.

People want to come here and air what ever vendettas they may have over someone who, for whatever reason, pissed them off. With me so far? So, you start naming names, telling stories writhe with anymosity. You make up stories, as is the case on the board more frequently than not. You start slandering people BY NAME. So now here come innocent children (still with me?) who may be online doing homework, or looking up their family history, or whatever. They type in their last name, or some other pertinent detail, and up pops this garbage. HELLO? Get a grip and deal with the every day occurrences of life, will you please? No child wants to the shit spewn across this board about their parents. And, furthermore, shame on YOU for blaming this crap on the people to whom the shit is being slung. Are you really THAT dense?

and since I understand what your original point was, I won't point out the obvious grammatical andc spelling errors that made your post almost incomprehensible to get through. I do get that a lot of parents don't monitor their children, but that is, in no way, what I was talking about, or referring to. I think it has just gone way beyond the realm of reasonable, healthy, ADULT topics of conversation. Grow up, and for Christ's sake, act like the adults you pretend to be, or at least the way you attempt to portray yourselves to others when outside the safety of your computers.
thank you

Funny I only hear the scumbags complaining. I'm glad I'm not a corrupt judge cop or congressman or something this is like open season and as bad as it is utica needs this!!!
Pretty soon well only have officeholders who haven't made a lifes work at screwing people or putting people behind bars for headlines. People who CAN stand having their names spoken in all circles without a rehash of what a douchebag they are. Times are a changin!

Oh Robinhood you are the people's hero.

Thank you for protecting the people by promoting falsehood and cowardice, personal attacks and innuendo, and most importantly, name calling and insult.

I know now that all of the people that you attack are considering leaving public life because they are afraid of you.

Demented and delusional like the rest of your band of merry (wo)men.

My goodness I am really eloquent and ascerbic. If only some of you meant something or actuially were noticeable in our community, then I could really disembowel you with my rapier wit and sharp tongue. You really don't want to ever F**K with me.

I read these post with much amusement. In fact, I laughed so hard at some, my big belly shook. I'm still wiping the tears from my eyes. What humor!
