GAY BASHER EXPOSED!!!!!
I am not gay, but have friends who are. Here in Ashtabula, Ohio, there is an individual by the name of Doug Herndon who uses his Facebook forum, Ashtabula OPEN Forum, to repeatedly bash gays, and others from the community, in his name, or by using one of the over-60 fake Facebook profiles he has. In some of his posts he has alluded to harming Gays, and sometimes made veiled threats by posting along the lines that it is time to break out the guns. Though he leaves most posts up permanently, there are some he deletes. The sad part of this story is that a few local public officials are members of Ashtabula OPEN Forum, yet have taken no actions against this disturbed individual. If needed, I can give anyone who contacts me the contact information for over 15 others who are angry about Herndon's incessant attacks on Gays, some who have Gay friends or relations. Several of us have reported this forum and Herndon's fake profiles to Facebook, but nothing done. What is it going to take...a mass boycott of Facebook advertisers to run this individual off of the internet for good? Contact me, if you will, at voccanicholas@yahoo.com Thanks, Nick
