GOODBYE!

Kenneth M. O’Brien


After six months of attempting to provide a forum for intelligent discussion of issues, I’m calling it quits.

There is no such thing as intelligent debate out there.

There are only personal attacks, beliefs without evidence to support those beliefs, abject ignorance and just plain stupidity.

Go find a chatroom somewhere else to massage each other’s egos and insecurities.

I am through wasting my time.

  4. Ken,

    Too bad as I said before you were providing a valuable service and wether or not you agreed with a particular point of a poster is truly besides the point. The point is to talk about an issue pro and con. Sorry you are leaving as Southbridge has a need for a voice to get the issues out that the newspapers (an oxymoron if I ever heard one) fail or refuse to touch. Best of luck.

  5. That's too bad. This has been one of the better blogs that I've seen.

  6. Also, a suggestion even if you are the only reader. When I turned off anonymous commenting I stopped getting the negative comments. There's something about having to tag a real identity and email address that changes the tone of people.

  8. I feel your frustration, Mr. O'Brien. Thank you for your time and insight put forward towards bettering Southbridge. Originally from there and having experienced Southbridge in it's heyday, it's concerning hearing the commentary from those in the Town Hall in charge of rebuilding infrastructure.

  10. I no longer live in Southbridge, but it seemed like a good thing you were doing. Sorry to see you stop.
