Censorship. Sound Familiar?

Mau Mau

We have been trying to get more information on White Island (Mau Mau) to let our readers know EXACTLY what is going on and we are being ignored by GBCares, who held all of the meetings regarding White Island over the past year or two. After multiple phone calls, emails, face to face requests, a snail mailed request, and a public plea – we have been ignored.

But then we found this uplifting quote:

Some might think that because the newsletter is so good and filled with so much relevant and factual information, these people are using it to learn and inform others. But this is just not true. These people have something to hide, so they don’t want the general public to know the truth so that they can decide what their concerns or opinions might be.

That quote came from a GBCares Newsletter in 1998 referencing the war they had with the Property Owners. What happens when you substitute newsletter with website in that quote?

We cannot help but notice the massive amounts of irony after reading their article (below) and we know some will ask us “Why even release this?”.

Let’s quote GBCares since they said it best, in that 1998 Newsletter.

If you don’t know the truth, you can’t make an informed or educated decision, or even have an intelligent opinion on the issues that affect us all. This has to change and is changing, thanks to the many different people who are fighting the uphill battle to properly express the views of the entire community.

Well Said! We will warn you, you will have to strap in and READ. It should take all of 2 minutes.

Here is what we found:

A full year after the debacle known only as “woodchip-gate”, GBCares continues to blame this site and its visitors for all of its problems. But, the truth is literally in the details.

In an article called “Weekly Community Service Suspended Until Further Notice”, which GBCares released in their newsletter, they outlined their story, starring a jealous city agency, and a “careless weblog attack”.

Strap in kids!
