When I look at social media, anywhere and see a photo or avatar of the person who is posting, along with that person's screen name, it doesn't occur to me to challenge whether the person who has his or her name on a post is ACTUALLY that person. But the question has come up recently about how one of the board member's wives, posts on Facebook with what I consider some pretty vitriolic statements under her own name and with a photo of her. ... OR IS IT?????? Because, you know, women just aren't as good or as smart as men, and cannot possibly write things on their own without men telling them what to do or think, ie, CONTROL!!!! , or better, does Ron Hankins LOGIN on Facebook AS his wife and post AS HER? That would of course mean that Controlling Svengali Hankins would want to deliberately mislead people into thinking opinions that come from him are actually from his passive, puppet wife. A couple of misinformed people in this community believe that happens with a board member whose wife (unelected) posts HERE (me). That despite having DIFFERENT login accounts and CLEARLY showing who is posting as who, it MUST NOT BE THE WIFE but the CONTROLLING HUSBAND!!!! So, the ridiculous opinion is that the wife, not considered a thinking, responsible adult, MUST have her husband use her account to REALLY say what's what because of course she CANNOT HAVE HER OWN OPINION ALL BY HERSELF but be, gasp, CONTROLLED by another. By THAT standard, I think we need to challenge EVERY SINGLE PERSON WHO POSTS on Facebook or any other social media account under his or her own name and question whether that person is REALLY as indicated or an IMPERSONATOR. Has to be EVERYONE, including ALL board members or any other elected officials in any branch of government, right, because we don't want to apply a standard of accusing someone to be a fraud to ONE instance and not to another. Maybe get that ole wife to take an IQ test to prove that it must be a man. And especially, if there is even a WHIFF that 2 married people might have similar opinions, OFF TO THE STOCKS WTIH THEM BOTH!!!!!!!!
Or maybe, because I am being ENTIRELY satirical, if Ron Hankins really is NOT Svengali and impersonating his wife on her Facebook page, it's that SHE is an adult with opinions that we may or may not agree with, but she gets a pass for her opinions as an UNELECTED SPOUSE OF A BOARD MEMBER while others (like ME!) don't and have to listen to BS about how my husband MUST be some kind of Control Freak, with NO evidence of same. Love those double standards.
On a more serious note.

P.S. Thinking people should ask themselves who really are the ones that are concerned with *control* issues?
