Delusions of Grandeur or Delusions of Slander?


  • Has society made you pre judge those with certain political beliefs?
    Below is a conversation with a reader on facebook. It seems our blog has taken on mythical status and we are responsible everything perceived negative in Middletown.  Must be that damn Insider blog!!
    Some of our readers are experiencing un-explainable paranoid delusions ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ChrisTopher Polack
    It comes to my attention that your website slandered me and my volunteer activities with Midnight on Main. If you really like making up stuff, come see our improv comedy show this Friday.
    Seriously, your site is really funny.
  • Middle Town
    Explain this slander?
  • ChrisTopher Polack
    I volunteered for Middnight on Main. I received no compensation I don't even know why my name was dragged into the blog post.
  • Middle Town
    Type a link to what was specifically said that was incorrect.
    Did you get paid by the Chamber? Which post? Was it a comment?
  • Middle Town
    Did you get paid for any media related to Midd on Main by the Chamber or another source? You are welcome to write a letter to the editor if your accusation of slander is serious. You can clear up who did or did not pay you if you like. Please cite the specific example and where it was posted by us in a blog post. We cannot find anywhere were WE wrote that. We do not screen and are not responsible for what anonymous commentors post. middletowninsider@gmail.com subject : letter to the editor
  • ChrisTopher Polack
    I did not get paid for any media by Middnight on Main or the Chamber for my volunteering for Middnight on Main.
    You know, I do a search on your site and I can't find any link to my name. So, either it's not there now or or perhaps it was an anonymous comment?
    I blame the liberal media.
  • Middle Town
    So you are accusing us of slander- a serious allegation and without ANY proof or merit at all??? SO you are basing your accusation on??? Hearsay? It is not very nice to make random accusations when there is no truth. We too research our facts very well.
  • ChrisTopher Polack
    You're right, slander is a strong word. It's not a random accusation. YOu seem familiar with this topic by citing the Chamber. Did you say anything about me? Y/N?
  • Middle Town
    NO! You are active in the community and we know that from your facebook postings. If there were comments on other blogs or websites like the Press etc would you accuse them too?The Chamber, CHC, and City all worked together to promote Midd on Main. There was a combination of paid and unpaid workers used.
  • ChrisTopher Polack
    Okay, thanks for clearing that up. I don't know where people are getting their info from.
  • Middle Town
    We don't even know what people! Thanks for making us the scapegoat. Have a good night!
  • ChrisTopher Polack
    Hey, sorry we started on the wrong foot, anonymous blogger..Come see some comedy Friday and have a good laugh.
  • Middle Town
    Thank you! We might post this if you don't mind- its a good laugh- Check under the bed tonight- just to make sure none of our staffers are lurking there  Good night
