Villa regularly hijacks blog threads to make off topic remarks or to attack people on his growing enemies' list. He uses his name, but also posts anonymously and uses sock puppets like Hogan, Broadway Jim, Joshua T, foo foo, etc. What's even worse is that he misappropriates the names of others who post here. Lately, he's assumed the identity of a Catholic priest. He posted as a cleric on his wife's blog and at The Morning Call readers' forum.
None of this is really worth a post here. I'm telling you about it anyway because of something else - a startling accusation Villa made tonight on his wife's blog, Lehigh Valley Somebody. (A link is at the left sidebar). Villa's daughter, Sheena, was tragically killed two years ago while riding as a passenger in a car driven by a person who was drunk. Villa accuses three bloggers, including me, of impersonating his deceased daughter. Here's the claim, in all its glory.
O'Hare is a sellout of the lowest order.This is sad. Of course, it's false and disgustingly reckless. I might add that I've never seen a comment anywhere that purported to be from Sheena Villa. I also know Michael Molovinsky and Dave Najarian Najarian well enough to know they would never even think such a thing. Reading that vile statement really upsets me, and I have to deny Villa's claim publicly.
And a muzzler of opinions that threaten his ambitions.
That's why O'Hare and Molovinsky and Najarian moderate comments at their blogs.
To muzzle people in advance.
We moderate comments here to block these 3 stooges from commenting anonymously as my deceased daughter Sheena "writing from hell."
Now let me tell you the real reason Villa enabled comment moderation. He did so in in August. It had nothing to do with his daughter. When he was in the middle of hijacking this blog, I decided to take his OT comments and put them back on his wife's blog. Villa was forced to delete his own comments and moderate ... himself.
Villa currently faces a criminal harassment prosecution.
