A truly arrogant loser calling himself "Pro Powderville" and "Let the Courts Decide" has resorted to trash talk and priesthood meeting talk to denigrate the Powderville victims. The spelling errors below belong to this mental giant:

Lets see. You tried to get your voice heard in commissions so that we could not develop our land as we see fit.
We just laughed, put a big red thumb-tack on your house for future reference, made a couple of phone calls. and had a law passed; we went right around your precious commission.
You then tried to have legal manuevering stop us from the right to develop our own land, and you were symied by the court.
You now appeal that ruling...
In the meantime others are jockeying all over the valley to develop their land as they see fit.
You stoner freaks just dont get it. Big development has come to your little corner of the world. People like the valley, are going to flock there, expoentially.
All the while, even while your little tea pot tempest simmers, my land becomes more valuable because of this. Which is good for me.
Wait until I descide to develop. Best of luck stopping my plans, skippy mc bearded-freak.
Win. Win. Win. and... Win.
Earlier in the thread, Standard Assistant editor Doug Gibson weighed in with this sage comment:

It's a recurring lesson for corporations and groups: When you try to suppress another group's voice, it ultimately becomes a bigger news story than if you had just left well enough alone.
It is time to keep this issue alive. Visit the Standard's message board and weigh in to let Mr. Pro Powderville know how the majority of Ogden Valley residents feel about the developers fascist tactics.
The Voice of Deseret blog also sounded off on the issue in a recent post. Deseret writes about a recent Standard article citing Ogden as a prime place to retire.
Yet the story includes not a single word about the one issue which will change the "low traffic" and "small-town feeling"; namely, the proposed Powder Mountain incorporation plan. Detractors fear an upsurge in vehicular traffic and the complete erosion of that "small town feeling". Eden could easily become another Park City - which might not be a problem, except the people who live there do NOT want it to become another ersatz assembly-line "apres-ski" clone, replete with close-order drill on how to paint one's house, where one can park, how high one's lawn can be cut, whether or not tree houses are allowed, etc.
The forum is now yours. What say ye Ogden Valley?
