Miss Wisconsin Scholarship Pageant
We hate to give attention to a pageant stalker, but thought it would be important to finally share this with everyone. As the Miss Wisconsin pageant draws near, we wanted to take the time to remind everyone, not just titleholders, but directors, contestants' family members, and fans alike, to stay away from a website that is a breeding ground for slander, hatred, and all-around negativity. It's easy to say, "oh, I just want to see if they're talking about me or so-and-so, but I promise I won't let anything hurt my feelings". However, we know that it's hard to not let those negative words, many times by anonymous people who are afraid to put their name to their comment, affect us. Furthermore, this board is run by a man named Jeff Ripp. Many in the pageant world know him or have heard about him. He has been banned from attending several local pageants for his bad behavior and unreasonable thirst for gaining personal information about the young women competing in the Miss Wisconsin Organization. This Voy board that we are warning you about is RUN by Jeff Ripp. Let's not feed into his sickness by visiting it. Let's protect our young titleholders from this internet bullying - and from Jeff Ripp. Let's band together and put an end to this website. If we all agree not to visit the website, then he and the negativity - lose. The Miss Wisconsin and Miss America Organization is a place to raise up young women in our communities; celebrate what makes them beautiful, intelligent, and caring. Let's focus on that in the coming days leading up to the pageant. Let's congratulate these titleholders for all they have accomplished and are yet to accomplish in our communities and state!
Jeff Ripp is the one in the glasses. Jeff is a pageant stalker and admin of a Voy board. He can track everyone that posts comments on his Voy board (http://www.voy.com/136833/). He also calls contestants acting like a reporter to gain information for his files. Jeff keeps huge records on all the girls. Be careful!

Important note: Jeff Ripp's Voy board. He can see everyone's IP address that posts to the board. Jeff can use that IP address to figure out what computer was used to make the post. This makes it easy for him to see if you used your home or work computer. Plus, he can figure out your location. Do not make posts on his board! You're putting information out there for him to track down. Stay off his Voy board: 136833 FYI: This is true for ALL the Voy boards.
