On Tuesday morning (21 October) I received many phone calls alerting me to the fact that our local Scandal Rag had published an article about Stephen Pieter Grobelaar and the Grey Teacher Sex Scandal from 27 years ago.
See: Ex Grey High School teacher prohibited from teaching indefinitely (published on MyPE on 5 October) | Stephen Pieter Grobbelaar (published on MyPE on 6 October) | Rape (published on MyPE on 17 October).
Anyway – in the interests of making sure that people were informed – as some were questioning the Scandal Rags motivation in continually attacking the Grey High School – I posted the following comment on Facebook; “See also: http://mype.co.za/new/stephean-pieter-grobelaar/41705/2014/10 and http://mype.co.za/new/rape/42187/2014/10 for letters about this.”
Reason: In support of said Scandal Rags article and to provide corroborating evidence to prove to the naysayers and knee jerkers that this particular front page article was one of substance.
Much to my disgust said Scandal Rag did not view this as support and took mere minutes to delete my comments on Facebook.
Methinks it is time to establish a non censorious forum that allows people to say EXACTLY what they want to.
Let me put my rant another way; “I had hoped to make the said Scandal Rags case better and stronger by providing links to corroborative and supporting evidence on MyPE. Sadly it appears that said Scandal Rag is not interested in and actively works to deny the existence of other citizens in Port Elizabeth who contribute selflessly to the discourse!”
