DeafRead is an important aggregator that has some guidelines that it does not follow.
On May 8 (the day before Mother’s day) Barry Sewell’s entry in his Holism blog was entitled “When Narcissists looks like one but is not.” (I know I know bad English but that is not what irks me) was run by DeafRead and is still listed there despite numerous complaints to DeafRead’s owner and operator, Tayler Mayer. Tayler and his team of editors have ruled that it is to remain listed. Go figure.
In this blog entry Barry Sewell (B.S.) who spins in the v/blogsphere under various alias (Buckaroo, Oh Buckaroo, Dr. Hocokan or Hococan (he’s not a dr.), Gurusays, Berry Tadodaho, etc) attacked a Deaf psychotherapist and her Deaf daughter after the psychotherapist made a vlog “When Narcissists Use Children.”
B.S. erroneously attributed the psychotherapist’s vlog to be about him and his son (ohBuckaroo jr.) It ain’t always about you babe. It’s interesting and a wee bit telling that he attributed it to be about himself and his offspring. The vlog is pretty clear about talking about narcassists and the using of children generally. Even offers some examples not relating to the b/vlogsphere.
The vlog did happen to come out after Barry Sewell had attacked another vlogger by spreading untruths about this vlogger’s daugther. (see Holism blog “Cheap & Dirty Shots by Nikki” which ran on May 2, 2010 or view it in DVTV.
In his “When Narcissists looks like one but is not.” he also attacks any parent who might encourage their children to be involved in social justice activism via any Deaf groups that he has been attacking over the past few years (AFA, DBC, Deafhood, NAD I guess too if someone brought their kids to NAD event..). B.S. then goes on to offer the worst and most twisted and irrational display of his lack of knowledge and common sense – the most … yet to date to find their way to the printed page. He usually saves his really kooky stuff for vlogs and video comments. But i have faith that it is only gonna get twistier soon.
The b.s. in the “When Narcissists looks like one but is not.” entry gets better in the comments section when Joe Riolo (a
Hearing Deaf father of a Deaf son) shows up and gives a link for filing a complaint with the licensing board because… “there are some circumstantial or subtle hints in her vlog that made me doubt her altruistic motivation behind her vlog. Also, the timing of her vlog after your son’s vlog is very eerie. Yet, I must resist the temptation to turn these unreliable evidences into facts.”
Oh Joseph – I love ya but that was very grade school of ya man. Talk about eerie my friend – the psychotherapist was not even talking about Barry Sewell’s son and his little copyright violations video.
2nd to last comment is from theHolism (aka B.S. himself) saying that he still has to burn a DVD of the pyschotherapist’s vlog and send to the “licensure” board and there is a bit of chit chat about the psychotherapist having altered her vlog – which she hasn’t at all. Just more b.s. folks – from the master with a little help from his friends.
I will dissect his entry in detail soon but i want to keep this blog entry’s focus on the INAPPROPRIATENESS & and INJUSTICE of DeafRead running that blog and leaving it listed. As well as them publishing his “Cheap Shot” vlog attacking a different Deaf mother and her Deaf daughter in DVTV. I know they can not control the comments but they can control what they decide to publish and they are aware that when they run something they are giving it more visibility and traffic and lowering the bar on our civil discourse to the point of attacks and character defamation.
this is nothing new and its a BIG BIG BIG pity. DR and DVTV – u had so much positive potential! Painful to watch the goodness get sucked out of it due to all the pollution and liter they choose to post and list. Would that they hold true to their own guidelines and give “to bigotry, no sanction, to persecution no assistance.”
Seems the paradigm can only shift so far when you keep letting all these nasty lies be spun and hung all over ur aggregator and website. Exercise a bit of wisdom please and don’t run this sh#$ if you are truly interested in seeing a shift that u can take a bit of credit for materializing.
Careful careful – more than just innocent bystanders and Deaf mom’s and their Deaf daughters are gonna get cut up in that web – you Deafread and DVTV owner/operator and Human Editors and all the good folks who subscribe and submit their b/vlogs are gonna get caught up too while the spider gets fat and happy.
First they came for…
And PURPLE might wake up and say – hmmmmm bad PR
But most of all – stop running that crap cuz its the right thing to do – u know “the better angels of our nature…”
Note: 5/19/2010 – this post was modified to remove the first name of Tayler Mayer because someone said that using his first name is a “brutal attack” against him so i have revised accordingly.
