Have you heard from other readers? What are their thoughts on your site?

There have been many e-mails. They've almost all been very supportive, and several have offered links or guidance.

Why did you publish Greenbaum's home address? What good will that do?

His home address is no longer on the site. Please note that his home address is already public knowledge. He publicly blogs at igreenbaum.com and has chosen to leave his domain registration information public, and has chosen to register with his home address and telephone number. This information has never been "private," and anyone who has an expectation of privacy here obviously doesn't understand the Internet. However, I've removed them from the site but point out that they aren't actually private. I know you've already tried to look up similar information about me through my domain name registration, so you see what I mean.

Have you had any contact with the person who supposedly lost his job because of Greenbaum?

No, but I'd like to. I very much want to hear more about what happened. I'd like to improve the factual content on the site.

Come Give Us a Smooch, Jerry
Back when we was a pup, men were men and what happened in the newsroom stayed in the newsroom. That's why Unreal coughed up our morning tequila shot when we read Chad Garrison's scoop about 76-year-old gossip column emeritus Jerry Berger getting banned from the Post-Dispatch premises for allegedly feeling up the male help.

"After a recent newsroom visit, we received several complaints from staff members about inappropriate behavior directed at them from Jerry," says P-D editor Arnie Robbins. "I love Jerry. We're friends. But we cannot tolerate that type of behavior in the newsroom."

Well, here at Riverfront Times, we take pride in our old-school cred. That's right: We not only tolerate "that type of behavior in the newsroom," we openly encourage it.

That's why we hereby invite Jerry Berger to come aboard the USS RFT as Unreal's first-ever gossip intern. The position's unpaid owing to budget constraints, but the perks more than make up for the lack of remuneration. (Funny, that's what our boss said to us when we asked for a raise. Anyhoo.)

We're already planning how to introduce our newest addition to the newsroom: Jerry's First Day on the Job: A Riverfront Times Slideshow.

That's sure to rock out the page views!
