Deleting my comments

Why does Michael Hull remove the comments he does want on his blog?  I asked him twice if he has brought the name of the person who's vote was disenfranchised to the DA and both times he has removed my comment.  Why would that be?

Perhaps the DA already has it and it is now part of the Criminal investigation and the DA has requested him not to comment?

Second thought....I do nit think the author of a blog has the ability to delete any comments but his own.

The author of a blog can delete anything from it. I only delete comments that have profanity.

http://newcity.patch.com/groups/clarkstown-preservation-society/p/preserverockland-lives Talk about being disenfranchised. Look at what our Election Commissioners tried to do to over 2700 voters! Looks and feels to me like outright corruption by Stavisky and Babcock.

When you add the above to the Absentee Ballot Scheme concocted by Sparaco who calls people who disagree with him "PUNKS", it looks like we have more to do in Clarkstkwn.

And, allegedly, Michael Hull has proof of that absentee ballot scheme. Maybe he did report it to the DA and maybe he didn't. That's why I am asking.

I didn't know you can delete comments under your blog. I thought only Patch could do that but I guess you can.
amy durbin January 04, 2014 at 03:41 PM
I believe you can only do it if it is your blog. I know you can "flag as inappropriate" if it's not your blog but then I think its only for foul language, etc. and the patch takes it off, I believe, if they deem it inappropriate.

Amy Durbin...Do you really think Michael Hull is Clarkstwns biggest problem? The Absentee Ballot system is a scam on taxpayers, perpetrated by a small time, small minded, wanna be big time politician. It is disgraceful. The voters who signed these ballots were not absent. I don't know what is going on between you and Michael Hull but your verbal stalking of him, when you know the problems we face in the Town are much larger, is making you look very foolish.

Watchdog: first of all, blog under your own name. I never said Michel Hull is Clarkstown's biggest problem and there is nothing between us. We both want the same thing for Clarkstown. He has the means to solve one of Clarkstown biggest problems, All he has to do is pick up the phone. I am merely asking if he has done so. That's all. No verbal stalking. Just a question, And you will note that I asked it at around 8 a.m. and still no answer. Just a yes or no. Certainly a man who has the time to write blogs such as his has the time to write yes or no? He stated that he had proof of what you are saying about the Absentee Ballot scam. If it is so disgraceful to you why aren't you asking if Mr. Hull went to the DA. He could put that small time, small minded wanna be big politician in jail. So Michael Hull - which it is -- yes or no.

One other thing Amy, Mr Hull does not report to you or anyone else in this corrupt Town. Concentrate your efforts on the more important things. For background, please re read Michael Hulls blog.
amy durbin January 04, 2014 at 09:25 PM
So he doesn't have to answer any questions? Sounds like every politician in Rockland.
James R January 05, 2014 at 09:41 PM
Mr. Hull thinks this is his personal playground I suppose.
amy durbin January 05, 2014 at 10:14 PM
Suppose so. Still waiting for an answer. Wants everyone to come clean. Guess there is a double standard
Charles Clewsow January 06, 2014 at 09:59 AM
Are you suggesting that those who filed absentee ballots were actually absent? And how did Frank Sparaco whose group collected these ballots seemingly know the results before they were announced by the Board of Elections? Seems like our whole system of voting secretly has been violated along with the need to be absent before filing an absentee ballot. Those appear to me to be the larger issues. The Board if Elections seems to ignore these factors while citing discrepancies for improper page numbering
amy durbin January 06, 2014 at 10:18 AM
I am not suggesting anything. Mr. Hull said he interviewed a gentleman who told him that he had signed an absentee ballot allegedly by duress and then went to vote and was told he could not vote because he had already signed an absentee ballot. Mr. Hull said he would not divulge the name (and rightly so) on the Patch. Said he would give it to the DA. Just trying to find out if he did. By the way, I asked the same question on his new blog and, remarkably, my comment was deleted.
Charles Clewsow January 06, 2014 at 04:05 PM
Perhaps I do not understand why your question is so important particularly since it may be a legal matter if he indeed did talk to the DA who may have requested him to remain quiet. In that sense, it would appear that harping on this question seems a bit unfair to Michael Hull. The issues of violating secret ballots and obfuscating the Absentee Ballot process would be the more important issue.
amy durbin January 06, 2014 at 04:47 PM
All he has to say is yes or no. Or he could simply say "I cannot speak about this". Or he could say nothing at all. My question is why is he deleting my comment all together. You are correct the issues of violating secret ballots and obfuscating the absentee ballot process is an important issue. that is why I wanted to know if Michael called the DA about the evidence he had (that obviously wasn't brought out at trial and could be the nail in someone's coffin). I was not the one that brought this up. As a comment in Mr. Hull's blog (Belgium Blocks and Absentee Ballots) he stated that he knew this gentleman and had interviewed him. I would think that assuming this is true, he would have called the DA since in that same comment he said the DA was welcome to call him.

Amy I appreciate your tenacityI wish others were as concerned as you are about Town issues but getting any answer may in fact violate the confidence of those who may be involved. I know nothing about what you are trying to uncover but I do know that Michael Hull is doing a lot for taxpayers and deserves the respect of us all.
amy durbin January 06, 2014 at 07:22 PM
Mr. Clewsow: I hate to sound like a broken record, but I do not think I am disrespecting Mr. Hull by asking a question. If he doesn't want to answer it (even by saying I can't answer that) that is fine. I believe he is disrespecting me by deleting my comments. And I appreciate your commenting on several blogs and cutting to the heart of the matter.
