Once again, Maria Denise Cudequest came forth to weigh in and repeat her warnings of impending doom with regards to pending business operations at the property at 1A Croton Point Avenue, owned by Greentree Realty. And in concert with her side-kick Richard Pellicci (see: “In His Own Mind, Richard Pellicci is the Judge of a Civilized Community” & “An Out-of-Control Richard Pellicci Rages Over ‘Listening Session’”), they both made sure to also issue a warning to residents who dare read the Crotonblog, or as referred to by Ms. Cudequest as “a local Internet chat room.”
As she indignantly took pleasure from the podium in making this publication sound as inviting as a venereal disease, Ms. Cudequest went to on cite several examples of alleged promiscuous behavior that have taken place on this very weblog. She described such activities that include a place, “where residents have been threatened, and accused of racism by default, to the theft of Dr. Pepper, often anonymously.”
Such are strong words to make in public while being captured on videotape. We therefore hope that the apparent charges brought forth in public by Ms. Cudequest do not compel our readers to seek restitution, an order of protection or probation against Crotonblog.
Ironically enough, as Ms. Cudequest encourages Croton residents to get their information through traditional sources, she fails to remember and mention her past experience as one of Croton’s most prolific bloggers. Early on in our history, it was Ms. Cudequest that immediately recognized the transparency that blogging affords readers and quickly capitalized on its ability to foster two-way communication by posting 109 comments and subsequently became a top user. In fact, she saw right through the transparency and used it as a way to hide six different “writers’ ” identities. It was those very six identities that caused Ms. Cudequest to be exposed by fellow bloggers and ultimately become the first person(s) to have their commenting privileges permanently revoked from Crotonblog (see: “A Penal Process Known as Banishment… Explained”).
And finally, contrary to Ms. Cudequest’s assertions that our articles “were sent to her by a resident” to give to her beloved Mayor Dr. Gregory Schmidt, our server log files tell a different story altogether. In fact, the IP address that corresponds to Ms. Cudequest’s Internet connection shows that “someone” has viewed a staggering total of 516 pages from July 1, 2006 to July 11, 2006, thus qualifying her or whoever she lives with as a top Crotonblog reader!
So, Crotonblog thanks Ms. Cudequest for her loyal and voracious readership. But curiously enough, one must wonder why a Crotonblogging power user like Ms. Cudequest would never mention this publication by name at a village board meeting or in their “his and hers” printed Letters to the Editor which appear in The Gazette?
Hey Maria, where’s the props yo? How ‘bout some love?
Maria Denise Cudequest: “And finally I’d like to bring someone, something rather to the board’s attention. Particularly yours Mr. Mayor as well as the publics. Um, this was sent to me by a resident. It was posted sometime in June as quote and editorial in a local Internet chat room (see: “Metro Enviro: Stay or Change the Course?”). A chat room where residents have been threatened, accused of racism by default to the theft of Dr. Pepper, often anonymously.
This editorial makes some representations about what was offered by Metro Enviro in terms of money in 2004. Ditto for what we could have allegedly got out of Metro at that time. Northeast as well as Buffalo Southern that are disturbingly inaccurate if not downright hysterical. In fact this editorial represents a fundamental change in the viewing of reality—giving the records that are available. I am passing it along because it points to the importance of obtaining ones information from traditional sources as we do. From the media that is at least held accountable for the things that it prints or from the village’s own records or the village’s website as opposed to chat rooms where it seems from this editorial anything goes.”
Mayor Dr. Gregory Schmidt: “Maria, I think hat what you are trying to get to is that we, the public really needs to do its diligence and try—“
Maria Denise Cudequest: “Absolutely.”
Mayor Dr. Gregory Schmidt: “—to seek the most appropriate information and ah—“
Maria Denise Cudequest: “As possible.”
Mayor Dr. Gregory Schmidt: “I don’t want you to belabor the point—“
Maria Denise Cudequest: “Absolutely not.”
Mayor Dr. Gregory Schmidt: “Just, its just the public does need to ask questions—“
Maria Denise Cudequest: “Absolutely. Absolutely.”
Mayor Dr. Gregory Schmidt: “And ask questions of us who can answer those questions—“
Maria Denise Cudequest: “Ask questions and go to traditional sources for their information. And finally, I thought you should also know that an entry has been posted in the same chat room which purports to be from you. It has, it is entitled “From the Desk of Dr. Mayor Schmidt. (see: “From the desk of Mayor Dr. Greg Schmidt: The buck doesn’t stop here”)” Clearly this is not from you but clearly you should know that this representation has been made publicly anyway and I have a copy for you. So, thank you everyone. I look forward to working with you as we move forward.
Mayor Dr. Gregory Schmidt: “Thank you. Anyone else at this time?”
