Bullying tactics not necessary

Where have the socially responsible, honest community members gone?

I am writing today to express my disappointment in the residents of Tanner Ridge and their recent behavior regarding Foundation Organics.

I visited the website they created and found it full of slanderous bullying tactics, manipulated scenarios, dishonest information and letters written with the explicit intent to drive Foundation Organics out of business.

Where have the socially responsible, honest community members gone?

I get that it smells, I have smelled it too, but the residents have always, since day one, made it loud and clear that under any circumstances, odour or not, it is never welcome in their backyard.

I hope the public and the residents of Tanner Ridge can see through these schemes and give Foundation Organics the proper chance it deserves to deal with these complaints.

I also want to point out that sitting around obsessively smelling the air will cause the best of us to have light headed feelings, dizziness, rapid heartbeat and even nausea.
