Angry Are there really Villagers that would sink so low - I hope not!

WOW I really find it hard to believe any Villagers would stoop so low as to get tickets just to stop others from going. I can believe that perhaps something came or they didnt fell good or even forgot but just getting tickets to deny others makes no sense to me and if true it has to be a very very small number (I hope they can sleep good at night).

Really? Get on YouTube and watch the golf cart parade from last summer supporting the incumbent. You will see these people standing along the way.

Ummmmm-----1st amendment.

But you are right---if someone is that paralyzed with fear, they need psychiatric help, not mocking.

You heard? Again, the rumor mill. If you want to go, get your tix and dont concern yourself with others and the local gossip group.

A single case of someone insulting you (without threatening some kind of harm) doesn't appear to meet the legal threshold for harassment.

Behavior Must Be Repeated

An isolated incident is not harassment – the behavior must be repetitious. If your ex plants a spider in your mailbox knowing you're terrified of them, he hasn't harassed you. If he does so once or twice a week so you live in fear of thrusting your hand inside, this is harassment. The acts don't have to be identical each time, they can be a series of different events. For example, he might plant the spider on Monday, then call you three times on Tuesday for no good reason, just to threaten you with more spiders or call you names.

Thanks for the information. I didn’t know this about walk-ins allowed after 6 PM. I’m going to check that out and for sure go down to hear some music.

We were in Sumter Town Square 2 nights ago and observed that the square area was not near capacity. Because of this we observed that people without tickets were just waved in. Common sense, love it!!

Wow good to know this I never saw anywhere that said that.

I tried to get tickets for the hooligans online and always said not available. Then at 8.30 a week in advance still not available then 11:30 sold out. The web cams show sparse crowd but sold out.

Wow! You really do not understand why people don’t like seeing super-spreader events. It because they increase the percentage of people who are walking around spreading the disease, which then they might get when they are out and about taking care of necessary chores.

I has absolutely nothing to do with not wanting you to have any fun.
