Readers should be clear that the ruling discussed here comes from the NRC staff, not the Commission. The NRC has yet to rule.

Point is well taken, however NRC is a rouge-like entity which has been discredited by those who have worked w/in the agency as well as the industry.

They are widely distrusted by the public as well & anything they have to say including their 'rulings' need to be understood in this context.

Given this, anything they say or do cannot be taken seriously.

Thump. Rubber Stamp. Industry insiders scratching each others' backs. They know how the revolving door works from industry to regulator and back again.

Why would anyone listen to northstardust who is the author of such trash as the following:

That's rich coming from the offspring of plant employees. Mommy & daddy send you to do battle w/those bad meany-heads who will make them reduce your allowance? Or, more likely, earn it?

Lots of young ppl work at dept & grocery stores-it's not so bad. Ask mommmy & daddy why they took that drinking well out of service if it's so harmless...

You display the behavior of a demon-possessed child-Exorcist comes to mind. Where ever you are you leave a noxious stench of vomit & filth.

Sad to say, you have never displayed any behavior other than that of a complete loser. Laughing? More like a continual facepalm as you blunder on in total ignorance & blindness, oblivious to your hideousness
Pants around ankles-AGAIN!

Wrong NPP dummy
Hows that steaming pile taste???

Don't you think it's time you stopped pulling on that skinny little string hanging between your legs-we see what slapping it around all day has done for the plant-it's falling apart. Is that all you brave bada*s bigot boys do all day???

But your skanky friend DID recopy an article-it was all a lie! So you don't know what tyour talking about anymore than that other waste of skin.

If you did your damn job & maybe the plant wouldn't be falling apart & none of this would have happened.
You and the dogpilers you cowards must bring along for the ride are as much s c u m b a g s as are you two. Get a room please & take your nasty little creepy 'friend' with you. It should be fun. Don't forget the protection-looks like you'll need it. Hard to believe even Entergy would hire you three to do anything other than scrub the floors & clean the restrooms.

one of many brave bada*s bigot boys, you've come to the right place & managed to conjure up another complete lie. I see you are too cowardly to make these claims unless there is a dogpile. Aren't you brave.

I was not proved wrong-you & your other troll friend was as usual.
I find your high & mighty horsecrap a laugh. If you are going to dish it out, do not cry & whine when it hits the fan & comes flying back in your face-I'd learn to duck if I were you, you big baby.

You have no integrity & are owed nothing. That was no insult-happens to be the truth. When you associate w/trolls, dogpilers, cockroaches & vermin, by association you are one & the same.

Who cares! Do what you do, but oh please, just leave us out of it.

No one cares about your sexuality that you are so proud of you must brag about it constantly but you!

-Oh there is so much more to northstardusts class act folks, but I have a life and leave you to reat the other for yourselves.

*Facepalm*

A big yawn & hearty laugh at your continued childish antics. I stand by every word, and, I'm honored. On another fools errand I see. Desperation is blinding you to your pure folly & making you incoherent.

I don't think the rest of Topix really cares or wishes to become involved in the petty pi&&&ng matches you e-thugs & trolls bring, as well as media reps form Entergy subsidiary & propaganda ministry VTEP, all descended upon VT & Topix for a year now in attempt to silence Entergy critics, including VTEP members & paid lobbyists streaming false & misleading info via op-ed pieces to newspapers.

Since it has been a complete failure & Entergy on the run, apparently blaming the critics when Entergy & their stooges have only themselves to blame & now forced to use grammar school antics as well as dogpiles & bullying.

Your behavior & tactics speak volumes.

Northstardust,

Thanks Northstardust.

Thanks for your time. Thanks for your dedication.Thanks for your attention to detail.

Thanks for letting their obnoxious, insults slide off your back.They think Only their camp can insult people.!

Their insults show their desperation .

They apparently think that they can use any excuse. A pipe is not a pipe !..

A collasping Tower is Only a Partial collaspe !(I consider that a classic ).

Leaks .. hmmm leaks are a good thing ... Blown Fuses another good thing...

When they are questioned ... wow. That's when we get a view of ... A view that shows how little they respect the public.

Blame those Wandering Beret wearing Trust fund Hippies ~!(I bet the public will believe that !)

That's rich coming from you! You have had many temper tantrums, hissy fits & insane meltdowns. Did you take your meds today? I certainly hope so. Just checking.

Since you & most others are not members, we do not know how many yall have w/your many alts.

Since you do not post stories & make no contribution whatsoever w/exception of your e-thuggery & false information, I'm sure this is surprising since you are only here to bash & attempt to silence those dissent.

My, my. An entire year & it still hasn't worked but yet you persist w/your folly.

Relax man. All I am saying is that maybe you need to chill out. Hey, if you think your 5,000 plus postings have gotten you to the place where you want to be in life well then more power to you. Just remember that the world is not out to get you and life is to sort to think that it is. So once again chill out and don't think we are all out to get you. I just read a post by cosmic cowboy and he thinks your doing a bang up job. So guess that just proves that not everyone is out to get you.

Not trying to 'insult ppl', per se, just my French/Irish feisty. However, those who hurl bs might be advised it can also can be hurled back. Rather pitiful to watch them cry, whine & behave like nursery school children when it comes flying back between eyeballs.

Because they can't duck as fast not our fault!

And the crazy continues! Entergy once again buried the second 'tritium near a drinking water well' story & pushed continuing debacle to their convenient Friday slot.
http://greenmountaindaily.com/diary/7187/how-...
http://greenmountaindaily.com/diary/7186/trih...

And 'officials' claimed re the 500,000 pCi/L in the water,'this is 'positive news'. Funny, VDH finds it 'alarming' & even complicit Irwin thinks it needs to be pumped.

Shay Totten:
One thing is clear: Contaminated groundwater is still making its way to the Connecticut River, and potentially into the bedrock.

According to test results provided to the Vermont Department of Health, tritium levels near the banks of the Connecticut River are more than 400,000 picocuries per liter — 20 times the limit set by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency; the highest readings on the site have topped 750,000 picocuries per liter.

Gundersen:
“What goes up won’t go down, and if they pull it up, it won’t go down into the bedrock.”

What will go down if Entergy keeps pumping out tritium? The price it can fetch for VY.
http://www.7dvt.com/2010lets-make-deal

Pictures of VY w/water pumping equipment everywhere doesn't look good.

Continued news as well as online 'commentary' isn't helping either, which explains the sudden stepping up of their continuing assaults & now sending sending in a new e-thug rom NY to dogpile, attack & more attempts to silence as the usual suspects obey like the flying m o n k e y s in Wizard of Oz:

*Facepalm*. Sheesh...

Your hysterics, histrionics & 'investigation'-priceless. Many thanks for the laughs! It was getting way too ho-hum.

Umm, that's not a real badge. Uh, no I'm not going anywhere w/you. Yes, this is really a can of Mace & yes, that would be a 'hatpin'. Yes, it IS very sharp.

At it again, I Vote Vermont Yankee? Hate to break this to you but you've wandered off the reservation again, you know, you're 'off the rails'? Iow you've lost it again, Mr. Magoo. Yes, I believe you had it, but, you lost it.

Hey, you already tried a witch hunt. It didn't work-remember? FYI: They became unpopular a few centuries ago.

Tsk, tsk.

Uh, no, the world isn't flat. Well, you can always look it up w/your computer, have you heard of 'Google'? Yes, you can find it there.

Yes, uh huh, thank you. I will be saving that dossier & your missives for the discovery phase of my trial.

None of your acres of evidence have proved criminal behavior btw Sherlock, so I wouldn't give up your post @ VTEP just yet. Wait until I'm safely behind bars.

You need a better hobby.

Really. I'm very relaxed, it's your tighty-whities that are in a knot, b/c this *is* your life, a nuclear lobbyist sent on a mission to the wilds of VT to save the besieged nuclear plant & shill for Entergy.

In your comic-book fantasy world, you're saving the planet from the planet-killers in your caped crusade.

Looking at the assorted nuts & squirrels who are so concerned for my mental health I would encourage you to look in the mirror. The parade & cast of crazies is quite interesting. Wish I had some weed so I could enjoy the show.

Your attempts to silence me aren't working-five shots couldn't drop me, I took it & smiled...
Many thanks. Bulletproof.

@Northstardust,

Wow hey thanks. You really think that I could be lobbyist for the nuclear industry. Though I know you have your own opinions I think that would be a great job. Thanks for the vote of confidence. Seriously I really mean it, thanks man.

But enough about me. I do have to say my friend I just finished reading your posts and I think you might have to agree with me you seem a bit on edge. Let me assure you again that no one is out to get you. So why not relax? Do you really have to attack everybody all the time? Now listen my friend all I am saying is if you feel that your purpose in life is to respond to every slight that you ever received through postings about Vermont Yankee then more power to you. I am sure you will find the same satisfaction in your next 5,000 post as you did with your first 5,000 posts. Honestly, I myself would rather be listening to some bootleg Dead Live at U of Vermont on April of 83. I always thought they did one of their best performances of better “Eyes of the World.”@ Patrick Gymnasium.

But any who once again I got let you know that not everyone is out to get you so relax. It is not up to one person to crucify every one. In fact I think if it was one would loose their levity towards life. And as I am sure you know without levity one looses their grasp on good mental health.

So let me just end by once again wishing you some good mental health,

John Farmer

Though we focus on youth, we have had an increasing number of adults who call and email us asking for help regarding their own cyberbullying victimization experiences. Some of the stories we hear are extremely tragic and horribly malicious. Many times, we are at a loss for words that might help based on the fact that Internet Service Providers and Content Service Providers historically have not turned over subscriber (perpetrator) records in response to complaints from targets. This recent article, though, may portend an encouraging change. Specifically, a New York attorney (Steven Wagner) last year specifically argued that a model who was anonymously defamed online deserved to know the identity behind those insults so that he or she could be sued for defamation. A Manhattan judge agreed and ordered Google to turn over that information so that the plaintiff and victim could proceed with a civil claim. Following this ruling, victims of online harassment and defamation of character seem to have new hope that the legal system will help them uncover those who bully under the cloak of anonymity or pseudonymity in cyberspace. It will be interesting to see how this plays out in other cases….
