Hi Lady Gray,
I know you are not questioning the phrase but 'telling someone where the dog is buried' is a saying that is as old as dirt. It means the same as telling someone to go hell, go screw yourself, eat you know what and die, etc, etc.
Interestingly, I've yet to meet a dog I didn't genuinely like but I can't say that about people, especially a few on this forum.
When I began posting on this forum Alden called me Elsie and I let him know that I didn't appreciate the endearment, I didn't like him, and I didn't trust him. That's what I was referencing in that particular post you were quoting.
Maybe this is purely my opinion but I deemed the below paragraph a verbal attack against Helena considering she was the moderator of MMM. A lot was being said about MMM by Alden and others that was not kind and I openly told Helena how sorry I was while the MMM forum was still up and running. She replied by letting me know she appreciated how I felt.
The particular post below was one that I couldn't help but take personally as well.
Like I said, I've yet to meet a dog I didn't genuinely like. Can't say that for people though.
"It is well known that many people who might have information about a crime hesitate to go to the police. However, they often will develop confidence in coming forward by viewing and testing the tone and conduct of a forum like the MMM board. There is no other board on the internet officially endorsed and operated by the Murray family. The MMM board occupies a unique position in the flow of public discourse and therefore assumes a public responsibility.
Because the MMM board and the Murray family’s private investigator, Frank Kelly, are so inter-related and virtually indistinguishable to the public, his recent post on the MMM board (“and I have gun”) can be viewed as an attempt to intimidate the general public and therefore to disrupt the normal flow of assistance from the public to law enforcement.
The MMM board does not appear to be merely lazy, uninformed, unorganized, or intolerant. Its behavior in discouraging public discourse appears to have been sufficiently concerted and uniform over such a length of time that a reasonable case can be made that they are trying to interfere with an official investigation by law enforcement.
If the MMM board, masquerading as a public forum, actually represents a true attempt to undermine or discourage the genuine assistance normally provided by the public to law enforcement, then those responsible for maintaining the site, including its moderators, come dangerously close to obstructing justice.
The New Hampshire Attorney General should review the MMM board’s public postings and private message archives in order to determine whether or not their conduct is either illegal or meets the standard for a civil action.
If the Murray family’s private investigators have, for past three years now, relentlessly harassed and interfered with, for no good reason, the private life of an utterly innocent individual, if they have engaged in “covert alteration” of his environment, if they have sacked his business, if they have spread the most malicious and false rumors imaginable about him, then there can be no complaint about any scrutiny given the MMM discussion board."

Thank you. I knew there was something I was missing. I appreciate this post. This board is absolutely incredulous. I sit here and think why do I find myself actually in the position of responding to these posts? I do so because I want to protect whatever integrity there is on the case of Maura Murray.
Interestingly enough, in reference to Alden's bizarre accusations and suggestions that NH's AG should check the MMM forum and PM archives for illegal activity, that's some of the information that was released under FIOA, so that FRED could have access to them.
So much for Alden's conspiracy theories.
