The clever dissident

Aren't they clever, those who don't like anyone speaking out against their views. These party shills and schmucks for dissent. They don't like pseudonyms, because they like to impress you that the anonymous poster has to be a coward. Now they have no problem using these avatar handles when it suits them, because sometimes they can't bear to express their thoughts under their real name. If you are a regular reader of Patch, which unfortunately are fewer and fewer, you know that this is true. However when an opposition post is so solid, so spot on that the dissident  is left dumbfounded, they will do or say anything to suppress the offending opinion. They will come out of the woodwork trying to discredit this opposing viewpoint. So if you have been following progression of events, starting with a blog and through to this board, hopefully it becomes clear that those who attack are the first to complain when they themselves are attacked in kind!

would someone elaborate on "Luigi"?

On the old patch I think "luigi the original" was outed as the brother of the mayors right hand man ( allegedly). Now someone thinks he is using cajones as a screen name.

Just curious, why is it a poster can author something that spills pure hate towards people from a political party they are at odds with, writes of possible criminal activity of sorts, demeans people in the administration they oppose and thats appears to be OK with people from the loosing party. But as soon as someone writes an opposing view they are attacked themselves. Now it appears there is a head-long attempt to ID a poster using a screen name other then their owm. Why is that? Who cares who is is? Other then people looking to bring personal attacks directly to this opposing person. Everyone has a right to an opinion not just those from one party or the other. Time to end this garbage.

Rich you didn't raise these questions when Capone was in office and Gene was found out to be Josey Wales? Now I hope who I've been told who CAJones is is really not the person suspected. I would think that person needs to focus on healing himself and getting strong instead of attacks on me. Lastly....using a name is very important...

If you remember correctly Dan, I was with you on that quest to see who Josey Wales was. Remember the e-mails I sent you about the comments being an implied threat? What is happening now is different. I don't recall any hate story's about April, at least I didn't author any. But when you do what you do, and someone comments back as is their right, they are attacked by those that defend you or still hold anger for losing the election. Who cares who CAJones is? Who cares who DBCooper is? These personal attacks need to stop. Don't like whats happening in EH, then November 2015 is not that far away. You mentioned healing instead of attacking, well you shouldn't you do the same. Don't you think it goes both ways. Or is it only you that can attack another person by writing a piece? Like I said, this has to stop.
