“…this comment was not allowed to be posted…”
This is a blog and we set the standards for content. Stand strategy, as evidenced by the list of PRA requests, is to swarm and overwhelm RVC and any places that could be valuable forums for civil discourse. We are not going to let that happen here. Besides, your comments were full of false assumptions.
“You take money from right wing privatizers and collude with high level efforts to break up public systems…”
For the purpose of this post, it’s irrelevant that RVC is a school, not a conspiracy. What is relevant is that we’re not part of RVC and we take money from no one and are also not a conspiracy.
“…your notion of fairness and balance is a farce…”
“PRA requests to RVC are inquiries to a supposed “public” agency in an honest effort to learn more about how it functions. This perfectly (sic) legal.”
This is a disingenuous statement. Multiple requests made in rapid succession is not an “honest effort,” it’s an aggressive assault. We agree that it’s legal, but it’s an assault.
“This page is an attempt to publicly shame people for taking an interest and participating legally in the life of their community.”
This comment contradicts itself. We think this PRA assault is shameful, but if you believe there’s nothing shameful about this “honest effort” then how could listing names and requests be shaming to anyone? It can’t be shameful and an honest effort at the same time.
” It’s a disgusting attempt to shut down the voices of those who RVC disagrees with”
Again, seriously? Stand members have pushed people off NextDoor and Only in Fairfax Facebook page (many posters were not even Fairfax residents) with their vitriol. Their members snarled and shook their signs at a school bus full of children. Stand accosted parents exploring their options. They videotaped children at an RVC picnic. They did a ridiculous vigil at an RVC open house (which we heard backfired because signs weren’t readable, and families thought it was an RVC welcoming effort – but that doesn’t negate the intent). The district picks and chooses how to alter and what correspondence to the board it posts. No more needs to be said.
