I was sickened after reading the latest edition of Norman Alderman's rag The Pocahontas Commentator. He and his buddies went on and on about how etater was hijacked and how "trolls" are misusing his online forum. Hurting people and spreading gossip. Well, I say that Norman is a hypocrite. He and his Moderators are guilty of doing everything they accused others of doing. Norman has called people rude names and ridiculed people for their opinions. New Moderator has ridiculed people and hurt peoples feelings for voicing their opinions. I think they enjoy stirring up the pot and then sitting back to enjoy the trouble that brews out. It is utterly disgusting. The people of Pocahontas County took a stand against Norman on election day and put someone in office that has dignity and RESPECT for our county and its citizens....something that Norman lacks.
By the way Norman, did all 15,000 relatives of the deceased give you permission to post photos of their loved ones tombstone (head stone is the correct term) on the internet?

Of course, they all gave their permission. Most people appreciate it that someone took the time to go all over this county and take pictures of their loved ones tombstones. This is a labor of love.

I feel kind of sorry (in a way) for the old guy because he and his "groupies" just can't accept the idea that West Virginia is overflowing with very intelligent and savvy people...and that a huge percentage of residents have actually entered into the 21st century.
For those of you who haven't ever looked at etater...here is one of Norman's favorite postings: ATTENTION MODERATORS:SOME ONE HAS POSTED PORN IN MY NAME! PLEASE REMOVE IT IMMEDIATELY! That will give you some idea of what etater is all about.
Keep stirring up trouble, Norman...you seem to very adept at it. If you didn't have to spend so much time stirring up trouble in that big gossip pot, you may have more free time to actually do something GOOD for Pocahontas County!

I do not recall you asking ME permission to put pictures of my loved ones tombstones on the internet, so don't say you asked EVERYONE! And what kind of fruitcake, besides you, would traipse around the county to take pictures of tombstones????? A labor of love? It is more like someone with tooooooo much time on their hands.
Mr. Alderman, you really should get yourself a job and put all that creative energy you have into doing something CONSTRUCTIVE for a change.

Yes, and you are also childish, immature and a few frys short of a happy meal. I hope it drives a few more bats out of your belfrey that residents of Pocahontas County can speak out in this forum; and you can't have your Moderators go in the system and delete any threads that you don't like...the way you do in etater.

Norman is a very cruel person. He refers to himself as a Christian. I have never seen a Christian display the hatred he has for fellow humans.

He is full of anger and loves to spew his rath on innocent bystanders. As long as he is getting attention, he doesn't care about the damages to others.

He willfully allowed lies and untrue rumors to be spread about someone very close to me. He did nothing to stop it. Even when he was presented with evidence to contradict the lies, he allowed it to continue.

Someday God will judge Norman for his actions!!!

What Normie has it isn't hatred...it is misguided righteousness. He believes himself some sort of moral compass for Pocahontas County Citizens, and he will go to great lengths. The reason I used the word righteousness is because he believes himself to be free of any sin, and has an outraged sense that he is rendering justice to anyone and everyone who he thinks has done him wrong.
So, Norman thinks he is RIGHTEOUS. What everyone else thinks is that he is a VIGILANTE. Myself included. He has etater set up to be a forum for spreading dissent. That rag he publishes depict West Virginians as dumb, ignorant Hillbillies...and he does exactly what Sammy Joe claims, allows lies and untruths to be printed and circulated around the County.
This is just my opinion, but Norman seems to have the classic symptoms of narcissism; he really needs to seek psychiatric care.

Thank you Deb for the fine comments. Yes, no one else chose to take up for old man Martin. He had to go it alone. I do think that it has made the town think twice about harassing him again.

Hey Norman!!! STOP USING PEOPLE'S REAL NAMES ON THIS FORUM! You and your moderators jumped all over ME on etater for using people's real names and gave me this big old long winded speach about how YOU could be sued if YOU USED NAMES. Why is it all right and just fine and dandy if YOU DO IT??? And your New Moderator made a snide comment to me about "hurting my feelings because I got my hands slapped". Then you go and whine about how your are losing a moderator because HER feelings got hurt, and you are going to miss getting a womans point of view on etater. Well, she must have got her hands slapped the same way I did when I tried to give MY womans point of view. Now she knows what she made ME feel like when I tried to get involved in your trashy old etater.
You are about the most hypocritical person on the planet, and you don't give a crap about Mr. Martin or anyone else in Pocahontas County. With the exception of yourself of course.

Thank you Larry. I appreciate your perspective. Ringo and Swift are mere neophytes. They obviously haven't taken the time to see what is really going on in Pocahontas County.

This comment is to Etator fan, from another state as you posted on Etator. So, we are idiots for ******ing about Etator? Well, you are an idiot for making a rash decision about something you don't know jack sh** about! If you are a newcomer to Etator, and would really like to start your own forum, then probably the first thing I should tell you is that Etator won't allow names to be posted because it stirs up some BIG trouble. Not with lawyers, but with the people in this county who still have an "eye for an eye" mentality. Not to mention that some of the postings that use names are nothing but mean and evil LIES. For example, someone the other day made a posting about the Animal Control Officer, and used their name, and claimed that the person was giving out a recipe for HOME MADE POISON to kill dogs! Thankfully the posting was deleted by the moderator, but only after it was posted for a very long time and goodness only knows how many people read it. And believed it, even though it was an out and out lie.
A lot of the beef that myself and other people have about Etator is that it does nothing but cause a lot of heartache and TROUBLE among people who have to live in a close proximity to each other. Norman Alderman and his group of regulars do their utmost to keep the turmoil going, and it causes a lot of angst.
People have tried to explain to Norman that his Etator is causing trouble, but since he is motivated by pumping up his own self esteem, he ignores how much people are being hurt.
If you start your own forum, are you going to allow certain people to say what they want and not delete out threads as long as they agree with your point of view? Norman doesn't. If you disagree with him, the moderators will delete your posting...OR delete certain things you said to take it out of context. If they don't like what you said, they may leave it up and claim that you are a "troll" who is trying to cause problems. Read Norman's Commentator. By their definition, YOU are a troll for being up in IL and honing in on a County forum.
You can think we are idiots, it is your right. But you don't have to live in this county. You can sit up there and enjoy all the bigfoot sighting postings, and laugh your ass off about the dumb (not to mention crazy) hillbillies down here in Pocahontas County, WV. It is exactly what you are expected to do- being on the outside looking in. Please do start your own forum up in Hennepin, IL...just make sure all your locals know about it so they can start stirring up trouble among neighbors.

The truth is never trouble. All we present is the truth! Etater allows local citizens a voice that they otherwise don't have. Sorry if the truth offends you!

IF that is NORMAN who posted that last comment, of which I am suspicious because Norman would have no reason to be using a RENICK server, you wouldn't know the TRUTH if it came up and bit you on the BEHIND!

Norman is a dirty, dirty man. He was always making off-color comments to the girls. I know one girl that swears he had a problem keeping his hands to himself. I sure am glad he is no longer in contact with students.
