Parrinello: "This whole thing is out of control."


Interview with Rahn's attorney

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

On August 20th, RJ tells YNN : "Yesterday I got 500 hits."

But then tells someone on her own BLOG:

Do NOT shoot the messenger about the discrepancy in BLOG hits.

I'm less concerned with Rebecca's claim than I am with Carters:

"Carter’s the president of NorthGate Neighbors. The association represents nearly 40,000 Greece residents."

40,000??????

What's Jeremy been smokin'!

SCATS said...

To 2:05AM ~~ "Inflation" has hit Greece.

It's scary but I agree with Parinello. It seems like this handcuff thing with Rahn and doing the charges piecemeal is orchestrated by Green and the town. They want Rahn to retire? And we know there are Greece employees that are "cooperating".
Class E felonies are the least punishable as we all know. Why the request for bail. That didn't come out in the news until now did it? The judge let him free on his own with no bail but the news didn't say Green requested 10,000. This sounds political. What will they do after the election and before the new people are sworn in Jan 2010?

Plus, anyone can hit refresh a ga-zillion times.

GreeceBlogger said...

SCATS-Thanks for all the publicity you are giving my blog. At the end of the day on Wednesday I had 512 hits.

Wacky!!!

Anonymous said...

Scats can you please clarify how blog hits are calculated?

Umm you left out that she is also trackin IP addresses of viewers? ( seems a bit scetchy as it is owned by google) So are we to expect that 500 idividuals viewed her site?
to 2:05: that may be the 3rd ward population and to many in the Northgate area they forget there is more to it past Dunkin Donunts :)

SCATS said...

To 9:18AM ~~ I'm thinking that maybe he included all the Charlotte folks in his numbers. As I recall they get included in the Northgate Neighbors group for some reason that I don't quite understand ... other than the fact that the new Walmart will be convenient for them :)

SCATS said...

To 6:24AM ~~ Regarding the request to have Rahn post bail ~~ Apparently, Rahn didn't answer the knocks on his door (the police) at Parrinello's orders (I'm not sure I believe this part, but OK ... )because John was in court. When he was able to get ahold of his son Matt, Parrinello had him turn Rahn in.

Did anyone else notice that Rahn was perfectly attired in his dark and white horizontal striped shirt when he was paraded in handcuffs? lol

SCATS said...

To 9:09AM ~~ I assume she wants us to believe she has a hidden counter on her BLOG. You should ask her to get a definitive answer.

To 9:18AM ~~ Tracking IP addresses through a BLOG site owned by Google would probably be a claim the folks at Google would be interested in.

To RJ ~~ I didn't promote your BLOG site, so I can't and won't take credit for your hit count on Wednesday. You might want to note that the time I posted this BLOG was after 1AM on FRIDAY morning ;) I do have accurate posting times in use on this BLOG.

I notice the number keeps growing ... first 410 ... then 500 .. now it's 512. Reminds me of someone's nose ...

In my mind, the "success" of a BLOG might better be measured by the comments posted. Without participants, there can be no BLOG.

Scats thank you for your last post. It is refreshing to see honesty no matter who it may offend.

First it was "alleged" plagiarism. Now it's questionable blog hit counts and claims of tracking IP addys. What's next RJ? Do you realize people don't want to feel like they're being spied on?

SCATS said...

To 10:50AM ~~ Don't get me wrong. Though we don't always agree, I enjoy RJ's views on many things However, integrity should always trump ego.

SCATS said...

To 10:53AM ~~ I suggest you ask her those questions. I can't help you.

Yes, it is conceivable that RJ would get many hits...and so should YOURS, Scats...as both blog sites were briefly advertised on the regular forums in Greece just recently.

Also--a few hundred emails had been sent out to promote RJ's blog for readers (not just limited to Greece area).

Higher ups in both parties are aware of both of your blogs and keep a watchful eye to see what people are thinking and saying...

so yes...I believe RJ. (Granted, many are return visits to see what's new, to respond, ect..just like you get, Scats).

And Scats: didn't you notice how your own poll took a "big jump" in its tally? They didn't just roll over to your blog "accidentally"...you also benefited from RJ's blog-so I wouldn't complain.

She's doing a great job.

I know of others who have blogs who have a "stats" counter to see how many times there blog was visited..it's easy to do.

And I would think that naturally people would want to return to see new comments or replies, or if there's a new blog topic up. Same could be said for you, Scats.

Business cards were printed to introduce her blog to residents also, so that may have contributed to the high count, as well as bloggers informing their contacts as to the new location for RJ.

Now that her website was promoted on YNN (News 9) and the blog site was clearly visible..she's liable to receive even more! It's all in the marketing ;).

SCATS said...

To 11:25AM ~~ You missed the point. The number of hits she got on WEDNESDAY can NOT continue to grow from 410 THROUGH THE DAY ON THURSDAY to 500 on the news at dinner time AND INTO THE DAY ON FRIDAY with 510 being claimed by RJ on here this morning. That's not possible. Something is wrong.

I'm not sure what you mean by SCATS being advertised on "the regular forums in Greece just recently." What the heck is a regular forum? Is SCATS regular or irregular?? What is the difference between them?

Getting 500 actual hits would be a wonderful achievement on any given day. Without accompanying numbers of comments, hits are not very meaningful.

I'd like to know how you can "know" and "measure" any claimed benefit SCATS got from RJ's BLOG. You don't have access to this account, do you?

Since this BLOG has been around for 3.5 years, I think it's fairly safe to say that SCATS has a "steady base" of followers. When it comes to number of hits, I have no idea and I don't really care to know. I will continue to BLOG as long as it interests and is "fun" for me :)

SCATS said...

To 11:42AM ~~ ARE YOU SERIOUS? BUSINESS CARDS!? LOL !!!

You mention how RJ's BLOG was "promoted" on the news and that "marketing" is important. If she's going to make this into a business, I suggest she get some of those nice Google ads posted ASAP so she can start to make money off all those hits! She might be able to retire by year's end :)

it is hard to claim integrity when you take someone`s post on grief and paste it as yours and leave it in the 1st person like it is your experience. Fudging website hits is not surprising after that. I also agree with RJ`s views in general but actions like that make it hard for me to rally behind her specifically.

SCATS:

We love your blog. Don't worry about competition.
let a thousand blogs bloom

SCATS said...

To 11:56AM ~~ I missed most of that drama, thankfully. Her remark to YNN caught my attention because I saw her morning posting about 410 hits ...

Anything more about RJ should be taken up directly with her. (That's a hint!) I can't explain her numbers. Hopefully she can. Let's focus on Parrinello.

Are you worried you are irregular SCATS? They have fiber supplements for that you know.

SCATS said...

To 12:13PM ~~ I'm only worried if I'm irregular and didn't even know I was! :D

Parrinello is right. Things in Greece are totally out of control. From town hall to the pd to the schools, it's all like one big cesspool of trouble. I'm looking to move out of here as soon as we can afford to change houses. Pittsford is in my future. No sacrifice is too great to get my family away from this corruption.

Auberger is our hero. I know because he says so.

Anonymous said...

I have to laugh, RJ thinks you are promoting her, her sidekick thinks you are mocking her and thinks I am intersexed. I am only Coffee and like my morning or anytime joe with a good dose of SCATS!

I really don't get those that think the only reason many of the GPD are "leaving" is due to a which hunt? That would imply they are not guilty of any wrong doing right? Maybe Auberger hasn't gotten his yet, but to minimize the ehtical/legal problems that quite a few have had, insults those that remain in the GPD that are GOOD cops.

SCATS said...

To 6:44PM ~~ It sounds more like they are promoting me! I guess that's why I don't need business cards ;)

Thanks for the kudos :)
