Well, as long as we're correcting others' written English... "mouthes" should be spelled "mouths"; you need a question mark after the second sentence; "democratic" (here) is a proper adjective, so you should capitalize it; and "what say" is colloquial, so I want to let it go, but really you should have written "What do you say?"

Also, do you have a job?

What? A teacher was assaulted? An administrator was beaten up? Someone had a gun at school??? How has this stuff not made the news?

It matters if they are suggesting that they are educators or in positions of influence in the field of education, which some of these guys have done. And the other thing is this: this seems to be really important. It sounds like bad stuff is going down and a school is in trouble. If these posters are telling the truth-- that there is corruption going on in the halls and offices of this school-- then I hope the situation is managed, and that it happens before the students are back in the building. But the more ridiculous these posts get, the worse their arguments look. I was excited to watch this thing play out at first-- this is precedent setting stuff, potentially-- but then these commenters just started getting so hyper-emotional and it stopped sounding cool and started sounding like a thread on Myspace from waaay back in the day. What do you want to bet the couple in question are not saying one word on here-- I'd bet that they're staying totally silent, waiting for y'all to talk yourselves into something that they can actually take to court. Be mad at me if you want-- you don't know me and it doesn't matter-- but at least consider it. This is bigger than an anonymous forum spat. Don't you get that? These guys were talking about calling WSB and CNN at first-- do you really think this thing your comments have devolved into would be taken seriously by them? You say "it's not that serious"-- there are people whose lives and careers are at stake, and one judge in one little town might make a future ruling that will decide whether or not you can post as Personalsavior and say whatever the heck you want. That sounds kind of serious to me.

Ha! You didn't understand anything I said. And it's kind of funny... it's totally cool for you guys to voice your opinion in this forum, but as soon as someone dares to criticize you (really, I'm just saying that the more you comment, the more off-balance you sound-- not saying you didn't start off with a good argument), they're a hypocrite. That's rich. And I didn't tell you not to use aliases-- I don't even know you! I don't care about your aliases, and it doesn't matter what I care about!! What I said was that the circus you're creating is taking away from your argument! Make up twenty aliases-- it doesn't matter-- but YOU are the one dropping big hints about who you are and what meetings you're sitting in on and your connection to "big leaks" like it matters a lot to you-- and it sounds like you might be in a position of influence. Exercise your rights to free speech, but don't make a mockery of those rights by being silly just because you're angry.

This is turning into a future Cohen Brothers film. A few of you guys have created multiple screen names (who knows who anyone is-- there are probably just five people with ten screen names each on this whole conversation) and are getting the biggest kick out of getting "famous"-- um, y'all, this is small time stuff. It's Newton County. Litttttle tiny place. Dropping hints about who you work for or what meeting you're sitting in on and what you know and how it will all be "out" sooner or later... you're playing to the same crowd over and over. Aside from a [probably] frivolous lawsuit, who cares who y'all are? In fact, a few of you might seriously want to try to maintain anonymity, especially if you work in education. You're not very good writers. You refuse to use punctuation. Your sentences are often a jumbled mess (especially the ones written by most of the Shannons) of thoughts that sound like they're being frantically pounded out on a desperately abused keyboard in a dark, lonely room. Satan69 (and all of your other screen names), I get it that you want us to believe that you have a job at the county level (you've made "building level" references more than once). I get it that you seem to have the inside scoop on some stuff. I get it that you and Shannon(s) are either the same person, siblings, married, or best friends-- you use the same expressions ("tee-hee" (really?), "wee hours," etc.)-- but you seem to be getting more and more manic in your commentary, and that's a shame. You had my attention at first, and some respect, but your work here has devolved into something else, something...small. You are hurting your cause with so much of what you're writing lately. You sound bizarre and freaked out.

See, you've hit on something that I'm finding fascinating here: a few of you guys have created multiple screen names and are getting the biggest kick out of getting "famous"-- um, y'all, this is small time stuff. It's Newton County. Litttttle tiny place. Dropping hints about who you work for or what meeting you're (not you, Henrycounselor, I guess-- who knows who anyone is-- there are probably just five people with ten screen names each on this whole conversation) sitting in on and what you know and how it will all be "out" sooner or later... you're playing to the same crowd over and over. Aside from a [probably] frivolous lawsuit, who cares who y'all are? In fact, a few of you might seriously want to try to maintain anonymity, especially if you work in education.

Um... your comments are starting to be kind of weird. It's kind of like you're trying to undermine your own efforts here. I know you're angry and you feel frustrated-- I get it as much as I can, with my own limited understanding of everything that's happening around you guys, but this Satan schtick is creepy and completely distracts from your mission. But maybe you're crazy like a fox... maybe you are one of the bad guys? Maybe the people who have supported you on this anonymous forum and have seen your points have been deceived by you? Maybe we don't know the whole truth and the rest of the truth is that none of your arguments are trustworthy?

So glad to read such sound advice on this page. This situation seems so overwhelming-- this advice makes it seem like there can be a solution.
