"If I thank you, I would be admitting responsibility"



The SLAPP email archives continue to illustrate behind-the-scenes collaboration between Hoboken411 owner and his ghostwriter to influence public opinion on matters of public interest and public concern, and to influence election outcomes.  

One of the site's practices to mold public opinion was censorship.

Banning and/or perpetual moderation  was the fate suffered by advocates of the 'enemy.'

The banning of "assholes" and  "erasing mistakes" for those who "played ball in the past" in the emails below illustrate the gate-keeping of political speech at  Hoboken411.  The  SLAPP emails show that the decision of whom to ban/censor and who was welcome was, according to the emails, often a joint effort.    

GA has a reasonable basis to believe that the SLAPP was an extension of the effort to silence political speech practiced on Hoboken411.com.

  1. Nailed! These guys truly lived in fantasyland: Perry comes off as this weird lonely dude who's always seeking approval and Lane is on this bizarre power trip just because he's able to make edits on a local blog. Crazy.

    How was Ricciardi going to "pay dividends later"??? Never mind. He did.

    1. I recall the mayor's stolen emails were in Lane's AOL inbox which he produced in discovery. Were those dividends?

  4. Perry seems so pathetic in these emails, and Lane seems like his puppet master.

    1. Now here's something we do agree on, Snoopy. ;)

      Actually, we agree on most everything except for the presidential election. All good, to each his own.
