Sudsy Wants You to Join the Oregon Commentator

Let’s Get Something Straight

My mother just received a menacing call from a woman, asking for “the Niedermeyer who works for the Commentator.” This charming female then issued a long stream of invective and obscenity directed at myself with no actual criticism or complaint. This is completely unacceptable to me. If you have somthing to say about what you read in the Commentator or on this blog, please post it on this blog or send it to ocomment[at] If your message absoloutly has to be delivered verbally, look up my number on the student directory or, but do not– I repeat, do not– call my family about me or my work for the Commentator, as any such further menacing will be an invitation to criminal prosecution. I understand that my contributions and editorial stance may be controversial at times, and I accept responsibility for that, but my family has no control over my actions in regard to this publication. Therefore, please direct your criticism, hate and rage to me and me only.

Thank you.

    The woman, she needs the therapy.

  2. Niedermeyer says:

    Looks like it was Deb after all… according to my mom, she called me a pissant, which I have never heard anyone use before other than Deb. I guess someone was “stalking” her on craigslist, she thought it was me and went through the phone book looking for me. This is what was on her mind that sunday… it’s enough to convince me. Time to lawyer up again, Debby!

    Niedermeyer you home yet?

  4. Timothy says:

    Only took me like an hour.

  5. Niedermeyer says:

    I’m guessing it was some kind of “pick up the phonebook, start dialing all the Niedermeyers” thing. It’s flattering actually… imagine how long it takes to get through that list.

    “Going after you via your mom seems very adolecent.”

    Bruce Miller stylee.

    PS Daylight savings time is rediculous. It should be boycotted and I feel that the OC is just the group to take on this pressing issue.

  8. Erica says:

    I’m sorry your mom got that disturbing phonecall. You have the right to publish and say whatever you like, and people should respect that. If they dont like what your saying then they should write you a ‘letter to the editor’. Going after you via your mom seems very adolecent.

  9. Dustin says:

    By the way are we protesting daylight savings?

  10. Dustin says:

    TED call me if you get this before 11:30 about work tommorrow or your dear old mom is going to get a nasty call about her disgraceful “editor” in chief.

  11. Ian says:

    Jesus Christ. OC editors are frequently harassed in person and through email, but I haven’t heard of something like this happening before. Fucking disgusting.

    You should definitely contact EPD.

  12. Doomscheissah says:

    File some sort of a complaint. If the number is able to be gleaned from phone records, get them. Do everything you can to destroy this evil person.

  13. Timothy says:

    File a complaint with the EPD.

  14. Blaser says:

    Do you think Deb is off her meds again?

  15. Dustin says:

    Only in your dreams are you controversial Niedermeyer. This chick must be CRAZY!

  16. Andy says:

    What low pieces of shit. Seems commonplace for people at this University though. Freedom of speech is reserved only for those on the socialist team here. I hope the assholes who read this recognize what hypocrites their movement has produced.
