Exposing The Publisher #7


Hi there.
Have you missed me?  I’ve certainly missed you fine people here at Hollywood: It’s A State of Mind.  The summer proved to be pretty quiet on the blogging front.  A lack of some meaty material combined with a full schedule of work between the store, the consulting and the radio show (not to mention the weather was just mind blowing in the NE this year) made for a “slow news” period, if you will.
I never worried though.  Fellow blogging sensation Mike Balburn, over there at PutnamLIES has kept us updated on the Mark Halburn (Whale) Watch.  Keeping the man in line.  I also know at some point, Mark would poke his head out like one of those gophers on Winnie the Pooh, asking for an “excavation expert.”  God that whistly lisp was annoying!
Now, I wasn’t totally sold on what exactly to do for a coming back party post at first but I knew something would strike me and the ole writing bug would nibble at my fingertips.  I was going to tear apart some of the Publishers recent articles but the Might Balburn beat me to a couple of those and of course, I tip my hat to thee.
::hat tip::
Then the publisher himself embarked on a new post happy opportunity over at Hurricane Topix forums and some of his postings were the nibbling I needed to fire up the next in the installment of Exposing the Publisher series.  Two days later, he gave me something even better with a recent “article” on…you guessed it, us trash bloggers.  Now that the important preamble (much like the declaration of Independence) is over, let us free our minds…
IMPERSONATION PAGES PULLED OFFLINE
Twitter Shuts Down Harassing Fakes
By The Publisher
Online critics of Putnam(Redacted).com are finding it harder to take their cyber cheap shots.
Uh, really?  I don’t find it any harder to do much of anything when it comes to exposing the publishers lies.  The summer has indeed been quiet because Mark has remained pretty quiet.  That was until recently over at the Hurricane Topix threads.  You really think you can pop your head back up like one of those fake moles in Whack-a-Mole?  By the way, what we level upon you are not cheap shots.  The 411 we drop on the lobes of the masses is the plain truth, which you seem devoid of being able to tell.
I think I should take a moment to mention that the publisher added a picture in his post.  Let me give you a peek.
::finger snap::
Oh yeah…this!
In the past week, Twitter, and other online services have shut down several pages impersonating and harassing this publisher of Putnam(Redacted).com.

Ha!  You had one Twitter account shut down.  Any others (if they excisted) were so unused they were shut down by Twitter for non use.  Of course, you like to pad stats and numbers all the time, like you did with your web site numbers.  How is that clicker finger by the way?  Any others that you think you can prove were “shut down” were ones you made to make it look like people cared enough to even “harrass” you.

As far as these several “pages” you have had shut down?  That is a big fat ZERO.  He  can’t get shit pulled because they are either parody sites or sites that have only revealed the truth.  If he tries to  claim he  shut down Cryptic Bullshit.com, that’s misleading.  Lee let his subscription run out months ago. Everyone else that he has  had an issue with, is still blogging.  They  just aren’t saying shit about him  anymore.  But he keeps opening these doors and he’ll see what he gets.
In addition, several other sites are in the process of being pulled offline.
Bold faced lie.  I can’t even explain this any other way, this is a lie.
Putnam(Redacted).com is the only web site operated by this publisher. Any other sites using the publisher’s name or the name of Putnam(Redacted).com are fakes.
His  web site isn’t even a web site.  It’s where real news goes to get distorted and treated like a whore by it’s publisher.  Links to others work is the majority of the “news” on this “news web site”.  The news “articles” or breaking stories written by the publisher are so one sided and full of diatribe, they do not constitute news.  One other deed of trickery is how these “articles” are reused with slight changes to fit the needs of the publisher when something crawls up his ass for the day.  No dates!  Things are rehashed all the time and because of this singular fixation of the publisher, having no dates allows him to the trickery.
While trash blogs and other online sites irresponsibly allow anonymous comments that libel people, here at Putnam(Redacted).com we limit comments to verifiable Letters to the Publisher as part of civil discussion. In addition, the publisher of Putnam(Redacted).com does not participate in trash blogs and forums.
White trash.  I laugh in this guys face.  If anyone is the epitome of white trash, it’s this guy.  First off, his house and yard scream of white trash.  They are both a mess yet he has the audacity to complain about a salvage yard next door.  Then take a look at his wife and kid.  I’ve been to the back water town race nights for wannabe NASCAR drivers and in the stands I have seen folks that are less white trash than this guys wife and kid.  Not to mention that the publisher himself is a 300 pound, half balding, loose fitting short, croc wearing waddler.  If that isn’t white trash I don’t know what is.
Addressing the limiting of comments.  The publisher likes to say he is protecting the “readers” (ie: his index finger) from vulgar language and/or disparaging remarks or as he puts it, “libelous” statements.  Let me first state that he is the biggest opponent of free speech as I have ever seen.  The reason he won’t allow any posts or comments on his sites is because he knows for a fact that he will get caught in a lie and confronted.  So he hides behind being selective as the reason for barring comments.  He is afraid of open discussion, much like our current, socialist administration.  By the by, his verifiable letters?  They are just stolen from other news services and posted as “Letters To The Publisher.”  With this guys track record, I totally believe that Governor Manchin and his wife write him letters all the time.
::coughsbullshitcoughs::
As Flipper, the editing bottle nose pointed out, these letters are columns send to newspapers and the publisher scabs them from other places to make it look like he is on this list of reputable news sites.
And excuse me a moment.  I have to change my britches.  I just sharted when I read this line.
“In addition, the publisher of Putnam(Redacted).com does not participate in trash blogs and forums.”
Hahahahahahahahahahaha! ::pfffftb:: Damnit!  I did it again.
This has got to be one of the biggest, bold faced, out in the open, no way to prove otherwise lies he has ever told.  Lets see, he have posted at WebBrodcasting.net, Medialine.com, HuntingtonNews.net, broll.net and a host of other places as himself and with fake names.  We “trash bloggers’ have proven it time and again.  He has even created fake names to argue with himself or to defend himself.  This is very typical tactic of an internet argument seeker.  He even does it in the same posts.  Here is an example from the newest forums he has been posting at.  Hurricane Topix.
This past Sunday (October 10th), the Publisher posted the following as Mark from Nitro (Nitro was listed because that was the IP the site collected when he was online.  Like my IP can be from Burlington, Essex or Montpelier, it all depends on what connection I make.) over at the Hurricane, WV Topix comment forums.  It was in response for a guy named Eddie who posted a question about moving to Hurricane…in 2006 I might add.  Douchenozzle decides to answer him.
Eddie:
I used to live and work in Oceanside.(Crouch Street and Oceanside Schools). Welcome to West Virginia. The surf sucks, but the people (not the politicians) are rather nice! You’ll miss the fish tacos but will adopt Tudor’s.
Please send me an email to News@PutnamLIVE.com and I will fill you in on how things are in Putnam County.
BTW, we have some great schools here.
That is a classic publisher comment.  One, he is trying to “make friends” with Eddie in the hope of getting him on his side.  Two, it’s 4 years after the fact which again proves just how far the publisher goes and three, shows his obvious relevance.  Now the funny thing in all this is how the publisher has tried to post under a few names to hinder and help his cause.  he has used this tactic in several places until he gets caught and outted.  Once that happened, he posted this as The Real Mark Hallburn;
For the record, I am the REAL MARK HALLBURN!! There has been several “imposters” on this website pretending to be me and who are supporters of people Scott Edwards and Joe Haynes who want to cover up the TRUTH!!!!
“Mike” who runs a libelous website about me, “Lee” from Ohio who seemingly has an obsession with me, and countless others. All of you are ordered to CEASE AND DESIST ALL LIBELOUS POSTS ABOUT ME IMMEDIATELY OR FACE LEGAL ACTION!!!! I have consulted my personal attorney on this matter and he did advise me I have a case if this type of behavior continues.
I provide a service to the people of Putnam County by providing them with the news and facts they deserve. I’m sickened the “powers-that-be” in this county want to hide the truth. I pledge to give the good people of Putnam County what they deserve!!!!
He’s even denied he is the Mark (who is obviously the publisher by the way he comments) is not him.  So in actuality, he is threatening himself with legal action!  By the way, proof that The Real Mark Halburn is indeed Mark?  He posted this (as Mark from Nitro) to another thread after he posted his “I’m the Real Mark Hallburn” temper tantrum.
Dawn:
This is Mark Hallburn from PutnamLIVE.com and I said “Why would you care about the sexual orientation of a mini-mart clerk?” I am not homophobic as indicated by this statement. There are other people on this board impersonating me who are posting things that I don’t stand for.
Lee, you have nothing to sue me for. However, I have copies of all of your Cryptic BS blog as well as that other blog that you write. It’s a long list of libelous stuff.
He then caught himself and posted as The Real Mark Hallburn again, blaming Lee, Mike and myself of course.
One final note on his statement.  The reason he hasn’t been participating on any forums or web pages?  He’s been banned by all of them!  Including this one.  But I will be lifting said ban so that he can grab his shovel and continue to dig his own grave.  Wow, that segment was a little long winded.  Shall we move on?  A show of hands?
::raises hand::
Ok!  That’s good enough.
Meanwhile, we are gathering online evidence of harassment, stalking, and altered photographs that have been used to cyber bully Putnam(Redacted).com’s publisher, his family members, and sponsors of Putnam(Redacted).com. That evidence will be used in court against the cyber bullies, impersonators, and those that have funded and contributed to those sites.
Ah yes.  Leave it up to the publisher to jump on the current bandwagon of the bullying topic.  If people like the publisher Mark Halburn, Tyler Clemente (the gay student who jumped off a bridge for being outted) or Rigoberto Ruelas (5th grade teacher that killed himself because of a bad review) grew some god damn hair then non of this would be an issue.  The easiest way to deal with a bully is to stand up to him.  Not to get on some bandwagon and waggle a finger at them.  Fucking people like this are pussies.  Maybe it’s Mother Natures way of thinning the herd.
The publisher should be one to talk about being a bully.  It’s all he does to people that interact with him.  From physically pushing an elected official, to the 20 something year old female manager at the local pool to confronting the SWAT team that was practicing at another.  He’s the worst kind of bully and masks it by calling everyone else a bully.
It should be noted that this entire idea of the publisher collecting stuff as evidence of bullying is also a lie.  Oh sure, no doubt he is collecting stuff but it’ll be tossed right back at him when he tries to bring this to some public court system.  I remember the last time he tried to collect stuff, storing it on a web site.  I got it pulled because all he was doing was copy and pasting our work of parody.  He had no right.  Still doesn’t.  Maybe he has wised up and just started some sort of text file but it still won’t hold any water in any court.  Good luck with that Mr. Publisher.  I’ll be sure to be on the list of witnesses against you when it comes to your bullying and destroy any credibility you have.  Speaking of which, I have a call to make.
Be right back.
*beep beep boop beep boop*
If you know of any such sites, or the identity of those operating and funding those sites, please email that information to News@Putnam(Redacted).com. The information will be turned over to our lawyer.
Dear readers and dear listeners (for I will be covering this on my show for the pure entertainment this is) I implore you to report back to me on any copy and pasting the Publisher has done in his efforts to collect information.  He most likely is not reporting it as such and I can have his stuff removed, defeating him once again.
Rest assured, Putnam(Redacted).com will not be deterred from presenting hard-hitting news to our readers, no matter how much the cyber bullies waster their time. Our advice to them: Do something productive with your time!
I guess we can wrap this epic blog posting up by saying that no matter what the publisher likes to call us, be it trash bloggers, figments of ones imaginations or cyber bullies, it is not us that will deter the publisher from presenting hard hitting news to his readers.  It’ll be his own ignorance and self applause that will do it for him.
Oh and I almost forgot.  Did you happen to see how much of a love fest that article was?  I mean, the publisher mentioned putnam(redacted).com a total of 8 times (once in title, 7 times in body) and his email once (in body) in that 8 paragraph curtain puller.  That was so much self love that I have no doubt his crank is a little raw to the touch and the paper towel rolls are empty.  Dode’s gonna be pissed.
::long stretch and sniff::
It’s good to be back.  Thank you and… GOODNIGHT DETROIT!
::crowd roars::

  1. I noticed that Mcdonald’s is hiring in Winfield. Perhaps he can get a job “with benefits” there, and all the McRib sammiches he can stuff down his gorge!

  2. LOL, if I recall correctly one of the most insane lawyers in Charleston FIRED HalLburn. So who is this crack team of attorneys working on his internet libel case?

    Man, I hope to see that suit. Let’s review- legal principle: the truth is always a defense to libel/defamation. Is he a porker? Yes. Is he a bully? Yes. Does he cheat B&O taxes? Yes. Does he plagiarize? Yes. Has he been fired from 10+ jobs? Yes.

    I rest my case. Defense verdict.
