The Wildumbmar Patch…


Apparently the proprietors/publishers/owners and editors of the Lake Elsinore/Wildomar Patch are in some form of transition of their publishing business model.

However, rather than shutting it down and preparing for a hopefully successful “re-launch,” they have chosen to keep it functioning with a variety of non-local stories, sprinkled with a light smattering of local stories posted by the current “editor,” likely working from her desk.

However, the most active part of the Patch  is the “comments” section, which has turned into a cesspool of  obsessive juvenile characters with anonymous monikers  who are determined to eliminate  any form of constructive dialogue between interested members of the community, who may have a  legitimate point of view.

For the latest example of this form of juvenile obsession,  the following comment thread on a recent  link to a Patch posting:

mountain man! i love you but it don’t take long to surf the WWW to find out the truth about what you dudes is whining about! i don’t need a link to some old whacko blog, what the peeps need is facts not fake scare tactics and accusations that get tossed out like tissue paper no matter the issue! like my pappy says too many cooks spoil the broth, well too many complaints spoil your street cred!

The Editors of the Patch will bear the marketing responsibility for their own degeneration into publishing banality if their inadvertent facilitation of this drivel  creates a local hostility to their eventual re-launch.

In my opinion, they have already negatively surpassed the  “journalistic”  accomplishments of the defunct Wildomar  Gazette.
