My name is Jerry Taylor, and I am really getting a kick out of most of these replies.

Some of you guys are very good at making it sound like you know what you are talking about.

But trust me.... You don't.

I think you just want to make yourself sound smart, when in reality you don't know what you are talking about.

This is how bad info gets passed around.

If you dont know about the topic....Don't make yourself sound like you do. Because I have 22 years experience in years in computer systems engineering and operation

Cuz some people believe anything they read on Fark

/sorry :-p

All that Interweb stuff... pornography!!! Child Molestion!!! and now Terrorists set to strike right here at the heart of our fair city!!

Sure it's bullying. It's also exactly what this amazing asshat deserves.

Were E-Systems managers really that bad? I have a couple of friends who worked for E-Systems in Falls Church in the mid-to-late 90s -- they never mentioned that sort of thing in my recollection, but maybe it was before their time. I've seen at least two people mention this old-time E-Systems tendency to yell and scream in relation to this story.

ProfessorTomoe: immyjackfunk: That all depends if the city manager is already in hot water for something else of asshatriness(sic). If that is the case, that newspaper would run the story until the cows come home, which this being rural Oklahoma, you never know, that could be anytime.

I see no problem with this. The guy needs to apologize. He doesn't even think he did anything wrong, as far as I can tell. He could use a great deal of attidute readjustment right now.

Despite the invitation on his City of Tuttle bio page to send him an email...

"My door is always open and I answer all calls. Click on my name to send an email. "

The link has been removed. Of course, Google still knows...

so first he threatens an open source developer with the FBI.

Now he threatens the internet for using the 1st ammendment?

What a giant douche.

IMHO someone at CentOS should just send him a bill. And add on a "shiathead fee".

This isn't news.

At the call center I work at, we've had people threaten to call the FBI, the CIA, the secretary of the treasury.
2006-03-28 12:05:17 PM  
I wonder what he would think about fark.
2006-03-28 12:21:15 PM  
I imediatly thought of Brazil when I saw the headline.

Question: What does Hawkeye have to do with this?

"2: Elected officials are, by and large, complete tards."

City managers are generally hired, not elected.

(One of the best eps of M*A*S*H, in my opinion!)

Mr.Tuttle hires a kid with a Toro mower to mow his lawn. Little Jimmy does a half-assed job and goes home. Mr. Tuttle sees this and becomes angery. So he calls the Toro company and threatens to call the FBI if they don't mow his lawn.
2006-03-28 02:44:56 PM  
What an absolute cock.

All Taylor had to do was let the guy he e-mailed do what Taylor wanted him to do - in his second e-mail, no less - and he would have been fine. Instead, he acted like every other government offical. PANIC!

Maybe he'll resign, like the puke from Florida.
2006-03-28 03:40:12 PM  
It appears his email address has been taken offline...

Fortunatly it appears it still shows in google's cache for thoes of you still interested in emailing him.

Of course by posting this link I wonder if he'll tell me to take google off the internet...​n​dex.asp% 3FType%3DB_BASIC%26SEC%3D%257BCC5DEFB6-1B2A-4783-A5F8-A92275C95081%257​D

This and the previous thread of the same story was a long but entertaining read.


TF only? I'd like to check the comments on that, but can't find it...
2006-03-28 06:46:58 PM  
sometimes when i read threads on Fark, i get the impression that i was wrong to assume that all the people who watched M*A*S*H and made it one of the most popular shows ever had died out and i was the only person in my generation who liked it.

Looks like the City of Tuttle has a large problem(pops) with their mayor too.

I love the M*A*S*H reference.

Nothing like confusing the hell out of people by spouting out random computer speak. Especially when they pretend to know what they're talking about. Then it just becomes too hilarious for words.
2006-03-30 04:40:50 PM  
If by the smallest chance Mr. Tuttle reads this forum, I've only got one thing to say.

Just salvage what little face you have left and apologize for misunderstanding the situation as a hack. Admit you made a mistake and went overboard on it. Laugh at yourself or others will do it for you.

Anything less, and you will be considered a complete tard by anyone who hears about this, no matter how much you try to shake this off. In fact, the more you try to deny it or shake it off, the more publicity you get as a tard.

If you won't admit it was a mistake, just shut up for now and forever and hope people forget.

Potentially, thinking it was a hack was something many people could have made. Calling out the fbi is something they still could have done. Not seeing your mistake and admitting it, and instead trying to fight it is what makes you look like a complete tard.

These are things I've learned by reading flame boards. It's funnier if the flamee gets mad and tries to fight. They usually end up making themselves look far worse. Even better, their continuing to argue makes the flaming last longer. If they just shut up, it would die out quickly and only seen by a few people.

Unfortunately, I doubt if Mr. Tuttle will ever see this forum, much less read this post. He will likely continue to provide humor for the rest of us for years.
