Hello Copley, we see you’re back online. We’re getting letters to Ed and phone calls about the News site.
“This site has been taken down at the request of the Copley and Districts Progress Association.”
Is everything ok over there? What’s the story with pulling the plug? Readers want and deserve an explanation.
You can’t unplug the News guys, it’s not China! And it isn’t progress.
We had the ABC on the phone yesterday…What do you want, prime time NATIONAL NEWS? Silencing a community is not done in this country and you can’t hide this even in Copley. We are going to notice!
If you guys don’t like different, then come over here. We have 43 nationalities and they are all different. But you have to appreciate differences. You can’t have it one way… Go for a holiday…get a break..come back fresh. Noone OWNS Copley. People share. People are fair. People care. Have you lost your sense of community?
You cannot justify this. A violation has occured in a position of trust. A community service has been pulled with no notice and no explanation.
Will the Editor or “progress” please get back to us with some answers for regional readers? “In writing”. Deadline is next Wednesday 5 pm.
Unfortunately you have been progressed right across the country for this little stunt. If I pick up my phone one more time and it’s about Copley, it will be reported to our Federal MP for investigation.
