Since you've done what you've done to another reporter of mine when others seem to be allowed to post back to their blog or sites viablogger section, I've taken the liberty to gathering information about your website.
1. I've determined the need for all that money a month is invalid. I run a major website, and do not need that much.
2. You seem to be running the show, not a major building with staff.
3. Donations like this should be going elsewhere, needed, not into YOUR pockets.
4. I am having a press release written on FR, urging citizens to stop wasting their money on you, and to donate for a better cause, elsewhere.
5. I will not stop, unless the price is right. Yes, this is a bribe, because I will not screw you over had you not screwed me over. But it can change with swift talks.
6. You are not a true AMERICA LOVER.
7. Have a nice day, expect your vendors to pull out soon and your donations frozen.
Kevin Martin SCWXA.org Southern California Weather Authority.
Watch his FR statement on video here and see if you think this is a guy capable of satire. Your skepticism is healthy, but in this case we have a delusional, mentally ill borderline personality who appears ready to go fully psycho.
What a jerk...! Boy is HE going to get some mail..!!!!
Is this for real?
This is going to be fun...
wow! don’t take this, Jim.
What is the Southern California Weather Authority?
I knew Martin was a nutcase, but didn’t realize how much of a nutcase. He should stick running his scams instead of trying to spam his spats over the internet.
Hey Mr Martin, Knock yourself out, pal.
“His” website is a piece of CRAP!
This is Hugh!
This is a BRIBE? So...he’s offering to give money to YOU?
This is extortion, and...well, that’s ILLEGAL.
I’ve already donated this time, but I made an additional $20 donation in this @$$hole’s name. Please give him credit. Thanks
Are you trembling in fear yet? What a weenie.
Disgruntled banned former FReeper?
5. I will not stop, unless the price is right. Yes, this is a bribe, because I will not screw you over had you not screwed me over. But it can change with swift talks.IANAL but that statement seems to me to provide the grounds needed for a lawsuit (or possibly even a criminal investigation). Have you talked to your legal-beagles on this?
Kind of pointless. There are really only two seasons: “Sunny” and “On fire.”
