Springfield Civic Association election results

Brent Mickum
The Springfield Civic Association elected new officers last night in Bethesda. Brent Mickum, who supports the lawsuit against Montgomery County regarding the Westbard sector plan, is the association's new President. Cynthia Green was elected 1st Vice-President. All other candidates on the ballot won easily, as they were unopposed. Springfield is the community most-directly affected by the planned redevelopment of Westbard Avenue and Ridgefield Road by developer Regency Centers.

Is this your neighborhood, Mr. Dyer?

Shouldn't you disclose that?

a win for the living residents!

Did the Westbard Cemetery precinct not run a candidate? I've heard about the power of cemetery precincts at the polls so much on this blog.

Dyer deletes anything he doesn’t agree with. He’s a child. Why is it such an awful thing if we praise a sitting Councilman? Is it because you have zero chance of beating them, much less a chance of even being competitive and not embarrassed again?

7:22 AM There's plenty of debate here. Dyer is providing a safe, well lit environment for us to discuss issues.

Readers are happy he removes offensive comments.

Robert please remove 7:49 i find their comment offensive that my comment was offensive.
I just want a safe, well lit environment to discuss issues.

Also does anyone know how to increase laptop brightness? this blog is a little poorly lit at the moment, makes it hard to read and debate.

Dyer hasn't "threatened" anyone- that's a lie. Debate the issues, not making up this false stuff.

And, who knows who will win anything? Particularly this cycle.

I, and many others, gave Hogan no chance of winning. He won and has done a good job.

Can't wait for Anna's running list of dyer's actual threats on this blog to be posted in response to 8:46

We must come from very, very different places when someone says they will bodyslam someone through a coffee table or punch them (was it a five finger death punch or using brass knuckles-can’t remember the exact wording but I think a few have the screen shot)...that’s a threat. How is it not?

8:51am more fiction. You want to attack, not debate the actual issues.

Here's what the police told me about being assaulted.

"If they say they have a weapon, believe them."
"If they threaten something, believe them."
"If they do it once, they'll do it again."

It's a smart way to think.

Tim said...

9:26am If Dyer is as bad as you say, apparently the worst person in the world, why are you here all day, consuming his content and posting weird comments?

Anna said...

I'm not here all day. I check in a few times, just like I do with several other sites Some days I don't read at all. I didn't read for months and months, unless hubby linked an article to me.

Where did I ever say the kind of nasty things to Dyer that he said to me or to others? I haven't. Ever.

You have a lot of nerve to come at me for being honest. You who are too embarrassed/scared/immature to let anyone know how you treat others.

Remember, I was a shill once. It happened to me. It could happen to you.

Tim said...

If Dyer is so bad, apparently the worst person in the world, why keep coming back multiple times a day?

You reply within minutes usually- you're refreshing Dyer's site throughout the day.

It doesn't add up. I'm sorry.

Anna said...

I explained myself to you.
If it doens't meet your expectations, you'll just have to deal with it.

You post at all times during the day and reply within minutes. Even with Dyer only posting once article a day, you are here scolding others ALL DAY LONG. You never veer from Dyer's viewpoint, yet you hide behind anonymity.

If you're looking for something suspicious, start there.

Tim said...

10:07am I'm sorry, I just don't believe you. You've said you post under various names here. You're always negative about Robert. You're always firmly for the Westbard Plan to desecrate the cemetery. Do you live in Bethesda?

You're sensitive yet I've never seen you complain when there's an "Anonymous" comment claiming Dyer is "retarded", a criminal, etc. I believe you post many if not all of those inflammatory comments.
I've never seen you comment on other local sites.

I like Dyer's sites. I just don't understand why you're here all day if you hate them.

Andy Van Slyke said...

Anna, you are not worth fighting with. All you do is cite past grievances. You aren't going to change anyone's opinion. I am not Robert's friend, but I am a Bethesda citizen who knows this council is corrupt and the developers want to destroy the community I live in. Robert is a great citizen for what he brings to light.

Anna said...

Andy, Andy, Andy...Considering that you made up that name to insult me, also provable, why should anyone give any weight to what you say?

I don't post anything I wouldn't say to one's face. Integrity. Look it up. Not used much anymore.

If I'm "not worth fighting with" then stop doing it. Sheesh.

Anonymous said...

When a troll talks to himself using different pseudonyms :)

Anna said...

Aw, Tim. Good memory! I said that once. Almost 6 months ago. I gave those up to use Anna on this site. If I hit the anonymous button by mistake, I comment again to claim my post. I'm not the one hiding, "Tim" or whatever your real name is.

Tim said...

12:07pm I'm sorry, I just don't believe you. Your obsession with Robert is creepy. You never say why you continue to visit here multiple times a day.

Anna said...

12:17PM You never say why it's any of your business what sites I visit or what sites I post on.
You never say why you care how often or what time of day I post?

It seems "Tim" is under the impression that calling me a liar nullifies what I said. It actually just raises suspicion about him.

Tim said...

It's illogical to belittle Robert and complain about how bad he is but continue to visit multiple times a day.

It's would be like following someone you dislike on Facebook or Instagram and continually tell them how bad you think they are. It's childish at best.

Anonymous said...

Perhaps the funniest/most deranged comment that Dyer made on the "Tastee Is Closing!" thread back in April, was that the staff of Bethesda Magazine "owe their jobs to me."

Anonymous said...

"Tim", I'm sorry, I just don't believe you. Your obsession with Anna is creepy. You never say why you continue to visit her multiple times a day, typically responding to her comments just a few minutes after she posts them.

It's illogical to belittle Anna and complain about how bad she is, but continue to hit the F5 key until you see the newest comment from her.

Anna said...

You're an "anonymous" commenter on a comment board who is keeping track of what another person comments, times they comment, content of their comments, making incorrect statements about what they've said about whom and you tell me *I* have a creepy obsession?

Hubby says you're trying to make me leave again because I just said that I chose to leave before because it became all about me defending myself from lies and false accusations instead of the usual Commentville banter.

Anyway. Why do you care? It's weird and kinda unnerving.

Tim said...

3:13 you never say why you continue to visit Robert's network of local news sites if you think they are so terrible. Not just consuming Dyer's content, but visiting multiple times a day.

Have a good night. I'm sure you'll respond tonight and insult me. And I'm sure you'll be back early tomorrow morning.
You never left, you continue to post under different names.

Robert Dyer said...

9:23: Are you admitting that you are the stalker who claimed you had given me a tip about the tailor closing simply so you could watch me go there from a nearby window? Defending one's self from a deranged stalker is never a "threat," just common sense, and 100% legal. #StandYourGround

Do you even know what the word "figuratively" means?

2:56: They do owe their jobs to me, since the small-and-slightly-failing magazine relied on freelancers, until my digital site started cleaning their clock. They then decided to clone my site in the form of Bethesda Beat, and had to hire full-time reporters to compete. They do indeed owe their jobs to me.

Anna said...

I just post my opinion.

YOU make all the suppositions and accusations.

Go ahead and work yourselves up into some outlandish conspiracy theory.

Meanwhile, I'll just continue to be a normal person, posting my opinions on a little local blog's comment section.

"Tim" please stop making things up about me. If you want to know, ask. What's this "consuming Dyer's content" BS. It's a public blog. You talk like readers are stealing something by reading here. Get over yourselves.

Hey anna, if you spam enough times, he eventually locks all comments. Its actually really funny.

Robert Dyer said...

5:49: I'm not frightened of my words, just sick and tired of you threatening and stalking me, and then only printing my response out of context. Problem is, you made those threats, and claims that you were watching me from a window, without using the name you are using now. You slipped up and revealed yourself, kind of like the frustrated sports blogger who made a Freudian slip again on here recently. You make threats, and then you try to use the response to defame.

Shameful.

Anna said...

Please get this through your head....
I AM NOT THE ONE THREATENING YOU AND STALKING YOU.

I just post my opinions on a blog. Why are you vilifying me?

You just keep up with your convoluted conspiracy theories.
I never said you posted all those things to me. I said you posted them to *readers.* Then you said trolls aren't readers, then I said of course they are readers, then you said they weren't, then I said they'd have to read to reply as they do, then you accused me of "knowing too much."

You said those things, I posted links to your actual words, then you attack me. What kind of scooby-dooian games azre you playing?

The only one looking bad here is you.

Anna said...

What are you going to say when I walk up to you one day, put my hand out, introduce myself and call you an ass to your face?

Are you going to come back to this blog and post an apology article? Not in the comments. An actual article apologizing for everything you viciously accused me of saying and doing?

One more time:
You need to step back and find a way to deal with your paranoia. Not everyone who sees things differently or speaks their own views is this mysterious person who you threaten.

If Dyer is so bad, why keep visiting here multiple times a day?

I love how Dyer has no clue what the legal term "hearsay" actually means.

Anonymous said...

Just as he has no understanding of the terms "detained" and "driving without a license", or of the separation of powers between federal, state and local governments, and how it relates to enforcement of immigration laws.

Anna said...

8:35AM - Find one instance of where I said Dyer was bad. Go ahead. Do your little searchy thing and find one. (playing final Jeopardy music) What? There aren't any?
Wow, just like I've said all along.

"Tim" - You're actually demanding another reader justify reading this site more than once a day? if it wasn't so sad, it'd be laughable.

Anonymous said...

I have commented many times at Bethesda Magazine, and none of those times have I been asked to justify my presence there, or to prove that I am not a robot. So insulting. Probably a violation of the Fourth Amendment.

Anna said...

I have commented there a few times too, no matter if "Tim" says I haven't.
Maybe as Whole Grain Goodness?

What I find creepy is his saying I haven't posted on other local sites in any of my names (that I mentioned here only one time.) Why is some anonymous guy who posts as "Tim" be stalking a female reader?

Tim said...

9:10 AM You have an abnormal interest in Robert Dyer. You admit to posting under multiple aliases. You continue to try and bully and threaten the journalist that publishes this site.

You're refreshing a site you believe is terrible several times an hour each day. You respond to comments within minutes. You always have to have the last (always negative) word.

You clearly need to take a break from visiting this site.

Anna said...

As do you Timmy. You've posted here under multiple names too.

Tim said...

9:22am No, sir.


Anna said...

It seems I have an abnormal interest in the Washington Post. I read there many times a day.
Same with IRS.gov. Same with dceaglecam.org Same with politico.com Same with crazydaysandnights.net

Tim, are you angling for an invite to spend the day with me? You can watch me work with at least a dozen windows open, since it seems to be such a foreign concept to you. I can listen to my classes, have a live-cam open watching birds, wait for clients to upload files, and read a blog all at the same time! I know, I know, that's a lot of new info for you to take in all at once.

Anna said...

I don't believe you "Tim." You have said something against me almost every time I've posted. Quit creepin on me.

"You're refreshing a site you believe is terrible several times an hour each day. You respond to comments within minutes. You always have to have the last (always negative) word. " Are you studying my online usage? Tim, why is this important to you?

Are you just creating your own little drama out of pure insecurity?

Tim said...

Anna, you are a nut, you need to stop. You cannot beat Robert and his ground breaking news. Unlike Steve Hull, he cannot be bought by developers and the cartel. Robert is the only unbiased source of news in this area. If you don't have to like the truth, but if you want to deny the truth, go read the news somewhere else.

Tim said...

9:51AM & 12:44PM And now, you are posting as me. I've become one of your aliases!

Tim said...

AHHHHH, stop pretending to be me Anna!

I, for one, think it’s comical that dyer threatens to beat people with brass knuckles. I just can’t imagine a slight and shaky 50-year old doing much damage. I also giggle when I think of Dyer wearing brass knuckles...for some reason I envision him wearing large gold chains and a “grill” in his mouth. Ah, the campaign slogans/commercials Hans could make. Guess bullying isn’t one of Dyer’s platforms.

Tim said...

Obviously I hit a raw nerve when the man behind the "Anna" fake handle is attacking me and posting under my name.

The troll simply won't answer the question why he visits this site multiple times a day if he thinks it is so bad. My conclusion is that he loves it and wants attention from Robert.

Anna said...

Tim, Why is it any of your business?
Is reading a site more than once a day such a big deal to you?
It's certainly obvious to all that it's YOU wanting attention from ME.

Don't get your knickers in such a twist.

One more time (should we make a little song out of it?)
I post my opinions on a little local blog comment section.
I'm female.
I'm open and honest and not afraid of you. That scares you.

It wouldn’t kill you guys to show some humanity on this blog. Robert is a middle-aged guy that loves with his mommy. How could he possibly be harming you?
