A reader (whose email I unfortunately deleted so I can’t remember her name … Laurie maybe?) informed me of a local media forum that she thought I would find of interest.
There has been a discussion going on about Wendy’s comment to the Burgh Blog (scroll to the “Wendy Bell Defends Herself” thread).
Some of that discussion centers on whether Wendy really wrote that comment, as she has denied to Rob Owen that it was her.
Readers? Based on the email address it came from (and no, I did not give Rob Owen the email address. I will NEVER share a commenter’s email … unless like the mob comes after me for it or something, then I’m pretty sure my sense of self-preservation will kick in), and based on the writing style, I am 100% positive that comment came from Wendy … and she then had poster’s remorse and denied sending it.
The comment that jumped out at me the most was this one by a guy who calls himself Burgher (how original, says the girl who dubbed herself PittGirl):
Some random observations:
“I don’t have enough time to shave my legs, for Christ’s sake.”
“I don’t like petty. I don’t have time for petty.”
Let’s see, no time to shave legs and no time for petty, but she manages to carve out some time to respond to minimally-read local blogs. I wonder if this could have been someone impersonating her. If it is truly Ms. Bell, it makes her look insecure and unprofessional. It seems to me that the general public liked her much better when she was dressing up like an old lady and advertising Comcast.
“Minimally-read local blog”?!?!
