I would really like to see the basis for attorney Jeff Lell and realtor Stacy Reno's statements in this 2014 exchange. I'm writing on resistance in gentrifying and inverting neighborhoods and I'd really like to get Mr. Lell and Ms. Reno's side of the story. Mr. Lell, you're an especially interesting case and like your friends Ms. Wynne and Mr. Kell, please consider this an invitation to answer some questions about various things you've written since March 2012. My interpretation of events is that you were upset because you felt that I had revealed your identity on the DM site (I didn't; I referred to you as "attorney Jeff L."). It appears from various writings you have produced since 2012 and the extensive browsing data you left on my website (until I blocked your home IP address in May 2013) from various devices that you have had what may be described as an "obsessive interest" in me. I think it's because you were pissed about the DM situation and because you are vehemently opposed to any additional land use regulation in Decatur that you feel would infringe upon your private property rights as a homeowner. That's my take and that's what I'll be writing unless you think I'm incorrect.

Decatur, Ga., isn't the most racist town in the USA but it's the one I'm most familiar with.

Decatur City Commission votes to protect trees, not people, amid pleas from African American homeowner to "have our backs." Commissioners side with developers and cave to neoliberal pressure. 3-2 vote against teardown moratorium demonstrates lack of compassion. Developers and residents comment on how much better the new neighbors are who buy McMansions built at teardown sites than the old neighbors and old homes.
