Re: Let it go !!!!!!

One more thing.

Thanks for posting, not so much as to defend Michael but to show there are normal people from Montvale. This page has gotten 485 page loads so far this month,(as of today)not that many posts. Most people will not waste their time with such nonsense, just blow it off and be gone.

Thanks again for having the courage to speak up and use your name.

Mike and the entire Bauer family were great people!

January 27 2006, 10:14 PM 

Well said Mary, I am outraged by the comments made on this board. What amazes me is the posts are made by "grown adults?!?!?!?" Come on people.....

As far back as Memorial School and right through to PHHS I was friendly with Mike. He was and I'm sure still is a great person. Evidently all of you anonymous people never took the time to know him or his name would not have been mentioned!! To Mike and the entire Bauer family I hope this post finds you all well and this is the end of the nonsense about you and your family on this board. Peace - Kim

Thank You Kim! I didn’t know Mike, but your courage helps balance this place out.

I am posting to explain a few things. You may see a lot of posts missing, and edited. I got mail from one of the people edited and will tell what happened. She was tired of all the crap being spread anonymously around this forum. Everything from her beating up kids, to getting knocked up. Not true, and no way to clear her name. She asked that the forums remove anonymous references to her, citing a new law. The new law is meant to prevent cyber harassment, much like the phone harassment laws. You can read about it here (link will open in a new window) That is not to say you can’t post, if you spout off stupid crap about naming people the board can be held liable for not putting in place some sort of registration system. They log ip addresses, but do not require e-mail, or verification.

They wrote back and said they were far too busy to maintain the forums, and just went ahead and deleted all of her posts. Kinda like having a kid and abandoning it and refusing to pay child support. That is how the forums have gotten so out of control. Her posts were ones supporting Montvale and Pascack Hills. Her goals were to reconnect with long lost classmates and talk about our happy childhoods.

I’ll admit I have extremely harsh on the boards, but without supervision, this place was nothing but innuendo and lies. Like her, I have been saying Montvale was not that bad. That is the whole point. We enjoyed growing up in Montvale as did most of the children from there.

Ray...

There are a few good software packages for hosting a meesage board like this one, and most all of them have modes that require registration and confirmation in order to use them, as well as spell checkers, "smilies", the ability to edit posts after you've submitted them, and the ever-so-important "ignore user" feature, which allows a user to block posts and responses from annoying or offensive posters.

The master administrator of the message board (in this case, Staline Films) can then assign moderators to specific sub-grouped thread topics. You, TC and others who were here from the beginning could have been assigned moderator status for specific areas of the board, which would allow you to edit or delete others posts, block or ban users for violating forum rules, etc.

In other words, there are ways to control and maintain a public forum and ensure that it meets whatever standards the owner/administrator/moderators define in the forum mission statement.

It wouldn't take much to put that into place here - it is probably already built-in to the feature set of the software Starline is using, just not implemented fully.

While I disagree with some of the sentiments you;ve expressed here, it is obvious that you care about Montvale above and beyond the De La Roche film (as evidenced by your thread about setting up a reunion site) and I think you would make a good moderator.

FuseTalk (http://www.fusetalk.com/), JiveSoftware (http://www.jivesoftware.com/products/forums/), JelSoft's vBulletin (http://www.vbulletin.com/) all make great front-ends to a messsage board like this one.

Re: Montvale: Under the Pretty - Not So Nice !

You beat each other with pipes and chains, a teacher pissed on Harry, a kid signaled out for abuse is labeled "a loser" Tom quits school because his testicles were mangled (sounds like a smart move), locking kids in a freezer, not stopping the harrasement of a fellow student, natural selection? both my girls were born way under weight. Do you suggest that I should have let them die? Forget Montvale. No wonder the rest of the country thinks NJ is a toxic waste hole. You should be the ambassador.

How much does this ambassador job pay? Is it enough to live comfortably in Montvale?
Ok you made me break out a cliché. I’ve tried science and logic, that don’t work on Americans, so I’m breaking out the multimedia, enjoy! (clicks may be offensive, mp3's will open in a new window)

I guess hills didn’t have a debate team either. I can see why you people had such a hard time, man you are just asking for it. In 30 years you would have thought you would learn not to set yourself up for a fall. I don’t like making fun of people I don’t know, but if I wanted to hurt you, there is a multitude of responses that would send you through the roof. (didn’t learn anything from Mr Kotter didja) In forum terms you are known as an accidental troll, you don’t mean to, but you are primed to be crucified. I am not pointing out specific people, yet I come under attack for relaying truths. I have illustrated that I was not involved in any of this abuse, I mention it happens everywhere, in every town in every country. There are biological reasons for all this behavior, just as there reasons that girls go for jocks, even thought they know they are idiots. Matt Groening has a great bully story in one of his comics, but I’m not going to scan it. WOW there were bullies in Oregon too?????? You can keep your head in the sand, you can go on tormented by events 30 years old, but to think you are unique and anyone should care about you is ludicrous. I WISH!

It still comes down to I don’t think Montvale sucked, nor do I believe that getting your ass kicked is a bad thing. You are supposed to learn from failure, not continue to fail. If you would like to keep up the name calling please use my mail, I will be happy to go into detail about everything that is wrong with the human race.

what is wrong with you? are you so hate filled that you think children from the special olympics can not contribute to our society. I would not call anyone retarded. Parents care about and love their children no matter where they fall on the athletic or IQ scale. You seem to have some issues with your own life. Did you go to college? Do you have your own childeren or are you impotent? If you are impotent, have you considered being a foster parent? What are you doing to make the the United States better for our youth? Do you have a lover or not? Are you homophopic? Do you believe in Darwin or creation? How often do you eat at a fast food restaurant? Do you speak French or Latin? Do you think posting pictures of retarded chidren is funny? If I killed my grandmother by pushing her down a flight of steps would you think that is just setting one up for a fall? F**k you and the horse you rode in on.

OMG!!11!!!1 It is horrible someone made a tasteless joke! Isn’t that what school was about? Geez I wonder where all these mutant children that get made fun of come from?

Where do you get hate from? Your delusional world of bon bon’s and soap operas? I present facts and figures and they are misrepresented as hate and homo bashing. Nice try at spinning, I don’t care much for the human race as group, I’m not prejudice against any one of them. Here is a quote from my mentor: “Some scientists claim that hydrogen, because it is so plentiful, is the basic building block of the universe. I dispute that. There is more stupidity than hydrogen in the universe, and it has a longer shelf life.”
You may not know this but there are a lot of homo’s in the entertainment business. Realy it is true, you can look it up. I was in this industry for many years and was tech director for a ballet company. The fru fru’s I worked with would not like you calling me a gay basher. (it did kinda creep me out when they talked about the boys locker room) you know they get make fun of people and get drunk like normal guys? Go figure! As mentioned above I’m not going to waste time going in to the other stupid remarks. But I keep being attacked so I have to respond. I was being nice too, and still am.

So for the people who still have a sense of humor, here is a slide show of work a friend of mine did for fark. The other 2 pics above are also from friends. This is tasteless humor, impeccably done. Enjoy! Have a happy friday!!!

You are right, I was wrong. I have made other mistakes in life also. When you say only the strong survive, this is true. Your pictures are funny. Being wrong is not the worse thing in the world. Learning from one's mistakes is a good thing. I am not fond of Montvale. I even think it sucks, but that is my own opinion. Your arguments were strong. Good luck. I am most humble now. LET'S TALK ABOUT WHAT WAS GOOD IN MONTVALE.

What's Good? Life's Good!

December 2 2005, 12:37 PM 

What was Good in Montvale?
Abes
(had the greatest selection of Rock magazines on earth)
7-11 (still the greatest work of art on this grey earth)
Food Town
The deli next to Abes
All the woods near the RR tracks
Dairy Queen
The farm
Huffs
Garden State (Remember the chocolate milk in glass bottles and the donuts?)
The park on Christmas Eve
Halloween
The brook that ran/runs into the Electric Light pond
Montvale pon
The old school across from 711


Now think of Abes and the Deli and how it was then. The character.
Wasn't it so much better than the plastic Ridgewood-esque monolith that stands there now? Complete with nail salon and sushi bar and more Realators -yay! just what the fuck we need: Nice nails and assholes selling every available piece of land.

I still like it though. It was and is home.

Oh yeah also another great thing about Montvale was the Brady drunk / methadone-addicted guy standing on the corner of Grand ave and Kinderkamack drinking out of a paper bag and puking all over as he stumbled up Grand ave...another fond memory.

All the folks mentioned as bullies .... they were and probably still are scumbags today, if they're still alive. If they are alive they're probably shot mentally and physically and hopefully someone is giving them some payback.... their wife, kid, maybe some (other, equivalent) scumbag.

Step back a minute Chickadee...

December 24 2005, 12:59 AM 

"Like I have said before it is natural selection for the weak to be picked on and eliminated. American culture is about winning, is it any wonder that losers like harry got tormented?"

"...nor do I believe that getting your ass kicked is a bad thing. You are supposed to learn from failure, not continue to fail."

What gives you or any one else the right to decide what personal attributes exhibited by an individual merit an ass-kicking? The person who posted here about getting their head flushed in the toilet - you're saying they somehow DESERVED that kind of treatment at the hands of some psychotic bully? To teach them a lesson about failure? Huh?

I think you need to step back a minute and listen to what some of these people are saying. Sure, as a percentageof the total graduating class of 1976 there were more good folks than bad, but that does not change the fact that there was an inordinate amount of bad.

There is already a concensus here - Ray Janovic, Mike Bauer, Flip Acapinti (SP?) and the Frassetto's and Higgins' were Bad Asses. Jon Felz had some anti-social belief systems. The list goes on (although I don't see Ray Ciccarello on it) which should show you that the level of abuse at Hills was not statistically trivial in the '70s. For you to dismiss it as "whiny crap" is a diservice to those who were truly traumatized by their experience, and more than a little insensitive. The fact that "[you were] never a target, nor an aggressor" means you don't get a vote, although I guess you are entitled to your opinion however callous it may be.

And by the way, enough with the cutesy MP3 files from Frank Zappa, John Lennon, and Robin Williams. If they knew you were putting their words in your mouth to defend your indefensible position, they would send you cease and desist letters.
