This morning I posted a response to Casey’s post titled, “Your tax money wasted by Mario Civera.”
Being that I am a Republican and was offended by what I read, I gave a rebuttal and threw in a few sarcastic comments and a joke, which no doubt hit a nerve.
I know the comment was there, because I reread to check for any spelling errors. I went back a little while later and the comment was gone.
I sent an email to Fran asking him if he deleted the comment and he told me he didn’t and that he would look into it.
Fran called me a few minutes ago and told me that he also saw it and was going to send out a mass email to the contributors here regarding the issue. I asked if it was ok if I just could post about it and then move on, which he agreed to.
First of all, I’d like to address Casey (whether it be Jr or Sr):
This is FRAN’s blog. Not yours. Not mine. Not anyone else’s. I would NEVER stoop so low as to delete a comment in a post that I started because someone hit a raw nerve with me or posted something that I didn’t agree with. A good, healty debate is exactly I was hoping for, instead the comment was deleted.
I didn’t name call. I didn’t mud sling. I just said what I felt was an appropriate response to your post. If you can dig dirt on someone, you better expect the same to happen to you. It’s politics. It happens every day. If you’re that thin-skinned that a little comment got to you, than obviously, you’re in the wrong field.
I may not be a very savvy political person, but I sure am learning. I LIVE IN DELWARE COUNTY and will do what I can for Upper Darby Township to keep it honest and on the right track.
It was very childish for my comment to be deleted. If you had an issue with me, you could have easily emailed me or Fran and I’m sure things could have been resolved and wouldn’t have to come to this.
Remember, we are in Fran’s home. Have respect for him, and have respect for those that contribute here as well.
