Hi, I am a developer and I hate your blog. I wanted to build a Fedders house in Elmhurst, but now I'm afraid it will be ridiculed on this blog. And then nobody will want to live there, not even the piss-poor immigrants. But hey, maybe somebody else will be willing to warehouse them somewhere.

Hi I am an elected official. I think I know what is best for your neighborhood.

We need to get the right people in who will think the right things and vote the right way.

So please do not get in my way. I have campaign donations that must be taken care of, and people to be displaced.

So do not dispute what I say. I own the newspapers.

And your friends will not help you.
