City Hall puts one Web site off limits

Web site's owner: Why ban just me?

By JARRETT RENSHAW
JOURNAL STAFF WRITER

Jersey City City Hall borrowed a page out of the Chinese government's playbook when it restricted employees' access to a local Internet message board known for its anonymous, biting commentary on the administration.

Mayoral aide Dominick Pandalfo said City Hall blocked access to the Web site getnj.com more than three months ago after he consulted with Mayor Jerramiah

Healy, who along with members of his administration are often targets of the Internet pundits.

The restriction was limited to getnj.com and was not extended to other sites like NJ.com, which officials say deletes "inappropriate" material. NJ.com and The Jersey Journal are both owned by Advance Publications.

"It's just anonymous garbage and political gossip," said Pandalfo. "It didn't have anything to do with productivity, it was about the content."

The site, registered to Jersey City resident Anthony Olszewski, features a Hudson County political forum, where users can select odd nicknames.

One message posted on getnj.com Monday by the fictitious "you bet he can" featured a headline, "Can Porky Pig (U.S. Senator Bob) Menendez Be Bought."

Olszewski did not return phone calls.

Internet War waged against Hal Turner, New Jersey hate monger

Menendez's campaign was like a tiger or a lion, supple and strong in action and reaction.
The Kean response resembled a skinny alley cat rummaging through a garbage can.

“Next was the poundin’ and thumpin’ of the goon squad runnin’ upa coupla’ flights of metal stairs -- sorta like jungle drums in some old timey movie.”
