I think this is much ado about nothing.

If one wants to challenge the contents of a press release; go for it. But to issue, what is essentially, a press release to complain about press releases is asking to be "mocked".

Personally, and as a rural resident, I find the DiIanni campaign's not-so-transparent attempt to stage this election as a battle between the old city versus the suburbs disgusting, but it's got nothing to do with press releases.(see DiIanni's LRT release)

I find Mr. Butani's general references to various people's intellect to be quite insulting. My experience has been that most of the posters on RTH, and especially those who are registered, put forward well-written and thoughtful positions. The chirps from various trolls really don't count and they're almost invariably "anti-RTH" in any event.

As to the stadium debate, I applaud RTH for standing up to those who would see Hamilton become/remain a "company town" at the cost of taxpayers. On balance, when considering the general quality of life in the city, the value to taxpayers and, yes, even the benefit to the Tiger-Cats, I've yet to see a compelling, factually-based demonstration that there's a better sight for a stadium than the West Harbour. No one would even be discussung this if it weren't for Bob Young's last minute double-cross.

Keep up the good work RTH.
