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.
I could use a beer and a hotdog.
What koolaid has he been drinking?
Kevin Martin is a sleazebag.
Kevin Martin (no relation to our own TrueBlackMan)- wasn’t this the guy caught up in all those pyramid schemes and has all these phony weather websites that are nothing more than fronts to push MLMs and other scams?
Would a guy like that try to extort money from you? Why I never...
“Kind of pointless. There are really only two seasons: Sunny and On fire.
No, no...we have four seasons...you left out “flooding” and “sliding”...
What an imbecile!
I believe this is refered to as “torturous interference”.
BTW, was this sent from a personal email .... or from a company email. If it is the later, you might want to communicate with the owner of the domain and ask to speak with their legal department ... so you can determine if this communicated threat is their official position and if the individual was acting as an agent of that company.
Don't forget about "Storm Watch '09" 24 hour coverage when it drizzles.
Oooooh! Pick me up one of those “We’re #1” foam thingies while you’re getting your pretzel!
And a Pepsi. That’s all I need... a foam thingy and a Pepsi.
And maybe a hot dog. That’s all I need... a foam thingy, a Pepsi and a hot dog.
And some peanuts. A foam thingy, a Pepsi, a hot dog and some peanuts.
Hold it a second. This guy sounds like an expert, no, I mean an EXPERT, at running a “major website” and he can do it for less money? Maybe we need to hire him. I mean, he sounds like a mature, stable sort, right? Web extortion via email and he signs his real name to it? What could possibly go wrong?
I am making a $25 donation bet that this thread hits 1,000 post before the end of the weekend.
Perhaps he's trying to generate traffic to his hole. I refuse to participate.
Is this guy really this nutzo to attempt to grab a piece of the action with an email? Or is it a bunch of trust babies at Berkley U. messing about?
should we all pool our money to pay him off????
Even if you did it for a profit, so what?
He’s a liberal since he thinks profits are un-American.
A real shmuck.
This looney toon for real? LOL!
Maybe I’m not up on the definition of vendor but haven’t seen any around here that I’d call vendors.
Boy, this sure has me skeered..bwahahahaha.. calling Hugh Series!
ALL YOUR BASE ARE BELONG TO US!
