OB Rag cofounder, medical marijuana proponent, and social justice activist Frank Gormlie sent out an email recently to friends and acquaintances, warning them that someone is "apparently [and] deliberately impersonating me and my email address."

According to Gormlie, the unknown trickster "is sending out stupid, even racist BS with an email address that is so close to mine, that it looks like the real McCoy."

Gormlie's email address is just a letter or two off of the one that the perpetrator is using to deliver incendiary remarks and bigoted posts on numerous websites.

Gormlie is pleading with his friends and fellow activists to "please let me know if you have received any of this bogus correspondence."

Shame on whatever moron is doing this to Frank Gormlie. He is a fine person and one of the best DUI attorneys who serves it to you straight up. Yeah, maybe he went a little overboard with all that Occupy stuff, but there is not a stronger advocate around for the little guy. He is not afraid to take a stand against idiot politicians, who shall remain nameless for now.

Frank Gormlie has been through the fire, so to speak, and for some dirty scoundrel to mess with him like this is an outrage! Whoever is impersonating him better watch out! Frank Gormlie is not a person to be trifled with!

Frank Gormlie is true OB all the way. The OB Rag reminds us all of happier times when the beaches, bars, and George's Shoe Hospital seemed immortal, with no hint of redevelopment, mixed-use Newport Avenue on the horizon.

Maybe the hackers will put some useful articles on the Lemon Grove Rag (See: OB Rag) and publish at least a few comments that challenge the imperialistic ideals of these old timer, wanna be Internet savvy kooks.

Also, stick to local news and keep your global opinions to your hand drum circle pow-pows and the people that are needy enough to attend them.
