Forums Request Line


Too many forums and there's dimunition, too few and confusion. Tentative list:

The Dawgpile for piling on to sites or articles deserving our attention.
Dawggerel showcasing creative talents, song, pictures, etc.
AllThingsCasey nuf said.
Dawgma to discuss the esoteric economics type stuff.
Dawgpounding spotlight on disbelievers.
PaperTraining for newbies to ask questions.

Seems Nigel could get his own or preferably just threads under Dawgpounding.

Suggestions?

GoFetch for Linkages
BadDawg for no holds barred discussion

Dawgsh*t for Nigeyboy.

Rob Dawg said...

I had TastyBones for links but GoFetch is better.

And DogFood to talk about beer and Trader Joes and sushi and stuff.

And if we are gonna have BadDawg for the rough stuff then we can also have GoodDawg for stroking each others egos and telling Steph she's beautiful and stuff.

I'm still tweaking a box on the homepage with "latest topics" so people don't have to click in the seperate areas to see what's happening/new.

Rob Dawg,
Are we going to have to register? I have yet to pick a name, and I don't know if I can because my cheatin' heart can't stay true to myself.

Benoit™ said...

A specific forum to discuss Casey and Nigel's alleged love affair? DAWGGY-STYLE. ;-p

Anonymous said...

Can we insure that the message board does not display IP addresses? Reason for this is that Nigel can't harvest them and cause anymore mischief.

Rob Dawg said...

Homepage and most places require nothing. Some forums need a unverified login, meaning type anything. A few pages are for verified reg only because I intend to pawn off some authority to originate posts. That means, say "r-boy" agrees to bring his ubereconomics brain to the game and initiate threads in Dawgma. The only way to give him that ability is to have him log in which means everyone logs in in some form. No biggie there. Having an active registration makes it possible to "throttle" access when things get out of hand. For instance; if the Dawgpounding goes postal I can simply turn on reg and that is usually enough to disuade the disruptors. This IMO is better than slipping everyone a cookie and using that to control miscreants. I won't do that. So, mostly free click access with a few premium pages that require a non-verified screen name. The only verfiy happens for those who volunteer to manage.

ratlab said...

Parvo should be used as one of the categories. ;)

walt526 said...

Just my two cents, but the "Dawg" theme to forum topics is pretty damn lame. Aside from looking less dopey, having something more descriptive would be more helpful to those new to the forums, IMHO.

Of course it's lame. We're having fun here. You want highbrow CalculatedRisk is so awesome I wouldn't even try. You want wild rants where people talk past each other but never listen housingpanic is your place. Heck, I'm a cat person fer gawdsake. Avatar, personae, extroversion... it's all theatre.

Miguel said...

Talking of loosers...

Casey seems to have set a bad precedent regarding comments. For some reason, he felt they should be “organic” even abusive.

I have no such inclination. You guys make fun of me all day long at EN, but when I turn the tables, you suddenly get upset. I’m just supposed to take your abuse? I don’t think so.

It is no more immoral for me to poke fun at you than it is for you to poke fun of me. I think what really gets you is you feel your anonymity protects you. It’s very one sided that way. Once that anonymity is stripped, you’re just as vulnerable as I am.

Jon here looks like a typical 20 something trying to get established in his life. No shame in that. Where the shame is going to lie is when I review his comments to match up his “righteous indignation” with his financial choices.

For instance, he leased his new car to make it more affordable. That’s similar to first time home buyers using an interest only loan to make the mortgage more affordable. The difference being, at the end of the lease, the car goes back to the dealer and all those affordable monthly payments go down the drain. The homeowner will have saved thousands in taxes, probably seen some appreciation and can now sell or refinance to better their terms.

All of you haters are the same. You’re just regular people.

Rob Dawg said...

Nigel really said this: All of you haters are the same. You’re just regular people.

Yep. Hoist by [his own] own petard. He must be a flaming meteor spiraling in to get this desperate.

Nigel, I converse behind the scenes and would never divulge these discussions but the EN regulars are an amazing bunch. "Regular" doesn't even come close.

I can not believe Nigel is condeming someone for Leasing a car but is willing to forgive Casey's sins.

Nigel, Even if Jon is flushing money down the draine with the lease it is HIS money. Casey took someone else's money and flushed it down the draine

Rob Dawg said...

Leasing a car -can- make sense. Dealerships extending luxo leases are getting big time butt reamed because they were behind this curve. I'd hate to be on the hook for an '04 Lexus or MB coupe right now. For years "resale" value was an artifact of dealers propping up values and unsustainable demand. Face it. SLK 320's are good for my lovely wife and a few thousand other beautiful, rich, productive upper management types with a travel budget but there are TENS of thousands of these models re-entering the market.

Right now a 0.9% loan on an '03 economical sedan type is gold.

Anonymous said...

So we now can conclude the following:

Nigel can't take criticism.

Nigel can't handle the truth.

Nigel gets upset when others call him on his relationship with Casey.

Nigel thinks said criticism means he can go after anybody he wants in the most childish fashion? He apparently picked Jon/Aelfscine based on the quick google search results and decided it was only fair based on his "indignation" towards Casey's crimes. Nigel thinks it's perfectly fine that Casey has bilked lenders out of money and helped speed the decline of his neighbor's home values. Nigel then uses Aelfscine's disgust of Casey's behavior as a reason to tear apart this guy's life?

Why is it okay that Casey stole from his lenders?

Why is it okay for Nigel to judge another person for leasing a car? What is wrong with a Scion anyway? BMWs suck.

Why does Nigel feel that he is being attacked? So what? He chose to be a transparent RE blogger and disclose his life story. Had he not gotten involved with Casey in such an intimate way, he would never be the target of this scorn. Too bad he is so myopic as to not notice this.

Stanley said...

Forum time....forum time...forum time.....

OK, enough being annoying.

T/Nacho has a new cult following after Snowflake posted the transcript...ROFL. She's a Goddess, but if he does another show, how will she slip by Casey's security (Nigel)?

Inquiring minds want to know.

Oh yeah, when I had my Corp....I leased cars for years because it fit my corp's financial/tax needs. If Nigel had a fucking clue, he would know people lease for any number of GOOD reasons; not because they don't have the stroke to purchase. Dumbass.....

R-Boy said...

Okay Nigel, I will bite. I asked that question because , I am an economist. I am not a mortgage broker. I do not know the law on such matters. So when I do not know an answer, I ask a question.

Here's your problem. You set the ground rules for this place, and then you violate those rules.

I don't care for you, or about you, as a person. I care because you spout about economics when you understand it about as well as Dr. Levitt does. By that, I mean, you have a non-neutral agenda. My particular role is to be a neutral party, and to see both sides, and that's mainly because I work with lawyers hired experts on a daily basis as we prepare for trials and settlements.

So, instead of intellectually attacking my ideas, you attack my own persona. You extrapolate on one comment. You're supposed to extrapolate from a pattern.

Nice try holmes. You'll be irrelevant next year. Want to hit hard? You've been a licensed broker for a year? A year? And we're supposed to consider you an expert.

I may be young, but with 8 years of schooling about 5-6 years of actual practice, I know experience.

Casey takes our abuse because its linkage, traffic, and attention. That's his goal for his site. Your goal for your site is to polish your professional resume.

I don't think this Blog helps you in this regard.

So Nigel, cast the rest of the haters aside. If you want to bring it, bring it to me intellectually.

R-Boy said...

I can't say more than this, but my efforts to communicate with folks about Mr. Serin's felonious behavior is yielding fruit.

You've failed at that as well Rboy. I've seen what you've written about me at EN. I would never call that neutral.

You've been a licensed broker for a year? A year? And we're supposed to consider you an expert.

The licencing is new. If you search that database, you won't find a single broker licensed for more than 4 years. Does that mean that's their only experience? No. And neither does mine.

And going back to your original question about whether you have to pay your mortgage if the lender goes out of business, that's just plain old common sense, something I wouldn't expect a government economist to have.

Anonymous said...

R-Boy, challenge Nigel to back up his claims on what you've written about him. I bet he doesn't have bubkuss.

R-Boy said...

Nigel,

You're trolling. Stop it.

Yes, I am not neutral when I talk about your lack of economic education. I can admit that. I was neutral initially. In fact, initially I thought you had the right idea about Casey. My question was not about whether I have to pay the mortgage, but pertaining to whether the mortgage could be called early. Thanks for assuming.

Now Nigel, let's talk. Why have you not posted ONE comment that I have made on your SLC blog? I'd love to know why you censor me out.

Let's go back to neutral party issues. I can safely say that, my position has nothing to do with the mortgage industry, lending practices, etc. I'm not involved there. So I don't have a job-stake in this debate. I do have a home-stake, but I imagine pretty much everyone on these blogs does. You're a mortgage broker. You do not have a neutral stake. Your job is dependent on the housing industry.

But hey, I'm not the only one who's stated that you don't have a conflict of interest. Pat Regnier over at CNN Money I believe called you on it several weeks ago.

But seriously, why are you censoring me?

And finally, haven't you heard that lowering yourself to other folks always leaves a bad impression. I'm no saint, but I adbide by the terms of the blogs I write on

R-Boy said...

Consider the glove thrown. I've debated guys who definitely were more challenging.

You guys keep up the fight. I have a 9PM conference call for work.

Dumbfounded said...

I don't get why you guys even bother reading Nigel's blog let alone posting on it. I bet you add up to at least half of his monthly traffic.

My suggestion is to just boycott it altogether. Anything else just gives some sort of validation to his useless screed.

Hopefully in our new forum era (P.S. I’d like to see a DawgPaddle and Dawgawumpus category) we can separate Nigel commentary from everything else. He’s simply too tiresome, intellectually challenged, physically unattractive and all around pathetic to bother with after a long day at the office.

Don't get me wrong...I see the poetic justice here. But it's still freakish and pathetic.

Anyone else notice how adamantly Nigel , I mean I, try to point out that G-money on the Utah trip is not Gary? I figure I say it enough times it will come true. Homey mentioned Gary once, and Nigel has mentioned it everytime he talks about Casey's visit with his hard money lender G, (Not Gary). Apparently G is another ass Nigel wants to kiss, mainly because he has money, power or something else that Nigel covets... Maybe a full head of hair?

Sac RE Agent said...

And now Nigel is clarifying Casey's tax situation for everyone. Atleast he puts a disclaimer up at the end of his post on his new thread.

It reads as follows:


There's been a lot of speculation of Casey's possible tax problems. People have inaccurately stated he owes tens of thousands of dollars because of his real estate losses. This really isn't true. Let's examine why.

First of all, look at his income. In 2006, he had a month's worth of income from Pride Industries. His proper taxes were taken out of that.

Some people have looked at his cash back at close as income. It's not. While it put money in his pocket for a short while, it's not taxable. Why? Because that money was a loan. All cash back at close, seller paid closing costs and seller incentives are borrowed money. Therefore not taxable.

How about short sale money that counts as income? Yes that's true. To date, Casey hasn't had a short sale happen yet. He's had three foreclosures and two more scheduled for tomorrow. So no tax event.

It doesn't look to me like he'll have a tax problem at all. He won't be free and clear though. All those 2nd position lenders that are getting pushed out because of the foreclosures can file deficiency judgments against him which will eliminate Casey from holding title to real estate. He'll also have a lot of negotiating to do with his unsecured lenders for the very same reasons. But as far as huge tax debts go, it's just not going to happen.

For an intelligent discussion on this topic, see this thread at SDCIA.

Please don't interpret this post as advice. It is simply my opinion. If you have tax questions please consult an attorney or accountant.

Nigel Rocks said...

And I've never heard of a 1099 so Casey won't be affected by that either.

Legion said...

Nigel said "Some people have looked at his cash back at close as income."

Actually cottonhead, the only one who looked at is as income is Casey.

As for taxes, Casey had one or two foreclosures in 2006, not sure which, cuz frankly, don't give a shit. Despite what Nigel may have read in his ggogling of tax laws, or maybe advice from his secret agent accountant friend, if the bank takes a loss on the foreclosure sale, and Casey owes more, that is considered income...ie, Casey owes 300K, bank forcloses for 217, Casey gets a 1099 for 83K as income..and yeah, the IRS is gonna want their share. I really wish the credit card companies can see Nigels posts and yank all his credit, I'm sure the IRS would love to audit his dumb ass as well.
R-boy can you get that done?

Anonymous said...

"Please don't interpret this post as advice. It is simply my opinion. If you have tax questions please consult an attorney or accountant."

Impossible because he makes the case for Casey and sells his point of view as fact. We all beg to differ, so the post IS advice and by law I can easily report this guy to the proper authorities.

Buh Bye Nigel.

Hey Nigel, you screwed up due to your arrogance on every issue. You are right and everyone else is wrong, so guess what? Your post IS legally advice and God forbid if ANYONE uses it.

Suck it up Mr. Know-it-all Swaby. The state of Utah will be getting a screenshot of your post. I am sure your license will not allow you to hide behind a lame disclaimer.

Nigel is not worth engaging. Save your energy for the real war.

Anonymous said...

Oh and

Anyone thinking of doing business with Nigel Swaby should think twice

Nigel Swaby is unethical

Nigel Swaby is motivated by his hatred of people who speak the tryth

Nigel Swaby is a censorship freak and anti-free speech jerkoff

Nigel Swaby believes we should all own a home whether we can afford it or not and that mortgage brokers should be allowed to do whatever they need to do to get people into houses.

Seems I found something interesting about Nigel and KC's relationship:

Go to Zewg guy's Campidiot.com site:

http://www.campidiot.com/cgi-bin/bbs/index.cgi?board=HEEKEE;action=display;num=1174959075;start=4#4

Here are two very interesting posts:

Are you running the KC's website now? Are you responsible for marketing and content and all that stuff?


No im just hosting it and doing the technical stuff.

I think Nigel is who you are thinking of.

Has he paid his bill or will you foreclose his website?

Huh? So Casey promised Zewg guy money now? What about the comment about Nigel running things. No wonder he's all worked up about us.

Folks, we've found the real puppetmaster.

Does the real Integrity First Financial (accounting firm) know that Nigel stole their name to use for his lame LLC?

Maybe they need to know so they can sue him?

Good find! Looks like the Swabinator is bird dogging some of the first dealz to hit the NEW IAFF. (AKA IAFF-Lite)

So here's the deal, Nigel is paying Casey Macaroni Grill/Ski Trip/Payless shoes for G/Rent to Yulia in exchange for IAFF after a period of time when he's able to scrounge up some sweet deal he found on a website for a So-Cal INVESTORS CLUB?

This is even more unprofessional, more rinky-dink than I'd first imagined.

Hey Nigey, planning to lay out some bird-dogging fees to the mailman as well?

R-Boy said...

Legion,

I forward information on. I am not in the arena of tax law or mortgage law. I know folks, so I hound them when I have free time.

Note that Nigel won't let me through on his main site because "He doesn't like me"

Newsflash Nigel: Just because you don't like someone doesn't mean they don't have a good angle or thought process. I've had to work with alot of folks that I do not particularly like, and I'm working with folks on a economics textbook who have very opposing viewpoints than I. But I repect well-articulated opposing viewpoints, I embrace the challenge, and I don't censor people because I don't like them. Censoring should only be done for incorrect analysis.

He ran a sales meeting for PINS?

...OK team, let's do our checklist:

1)Right pocket full of pins...check
2)Current price list in shirt pocket...check
3)Change in left pocket...check

Today's quota is $12.47 so let's get out there and sell those pins!

I thought he had an award winning blog. Since his blog is an award winning blog, he shouldn't have to troll other boards to drum up more traffic for his award winning blog.

Miguel said...

And remember that Rob's, like Aelfscine's, is a "non-award-winning blog".

Sorry, Rob, I know it must hurt.

Anon @ 1:31

Thanks for forwarding that. I had poked around Camp Idiot looking for "clues" but was really turned off by threads there like 'blacksicans: more black or more mexican?'

A link was posted previously to a thread in which user 'The Zewg Guy' - or something similar - posted on Camp Idiot. What I remember was, I believe, his handle/username was bold- perhaps a paying member or even moderator/administrator?

Then I noticed that the font in the top campidiot.com banner is the same one used in the zewg logo.

The zewg search box appeared on Casey's site a week or two (?) after the Galina photos were removed from zewg. Someone posted on EN a conversation - presumably from the camp idiot forum? - of (the zewg guy?) complaining that although he had removed the Galina photos, Casey hadn't held up his end of the deal.

By itself, it seems plausible that that's all there is to it - if you remove these photos of my wife I'll give your site a link. But then, recently, Casey moved his entire site to zewg's servers. This move was embarrassingly obvious due to URL rewrite / addressing exposing the zewg name. Zewg appears to be offering this service in the 3/14 post 'Lets talk about Nigel'.

And, Nigel also has a search box to zewg.com in his sidebar.

Yes, I think more answers may be within camp idiot for those that take time to look....

Jade said...

I read Nigel's very first-ever post.

Did he really blame 9/11 for the fact that he overextended himself on mortgages and lost his job?

Some Guy From Colorado said...

There are no mysteries with Heekee and CampIdiot with the Casey hosting situation. If you have a question for Heekee simply go over there and ask him. He's very open about what is happening.

Oh, and that $10k technical consulting fee thing was a joke. If nothing else Heekee has a sense of humor.

R-Boy said...

Hey look. Nigel is outing me! He knows my scooter was stolen!

The side benefit is that I found my old geocities webpage...cool

I saw that. Any idea how he came up with it?

R-Boy said...

Report Casey to the IRS using this form:

Nigel can see my email address for my blogger account, so he used it

SCOOTER?!? A freakin' scooter. Next, we'll find out you carry a murse. What other skeletons are locked away in the DawgPound?

No worries Anon. I have a Nice RAV4. The scoots just for intra-city traveling. 100 MPG.

Oh well, I shouldn't criticize; at least it's two wheels and an engine and you're not a freakin' cyclist. I hate those people....they dart in and out of traffic so much, it's hard to run them down. At least we can still fake 'em out, from time to time, causing them to hit the sidewalk, ditch, telephone pole, or parked car.

Life is good

r-boy,
I'll be in D.C. next week. Good to hear I'll catch the Cherry Blossoms. I swear I've missed it by a couple weeks my entire life. So, weather? What's a formewr New Englander with blood thinned by a quarter century of California lotus eating supposed to wear for touristy stuff?

bemused guy said...

Legion & R-Boy...
coincidentally I was online with Countrywide when I read your post & Nigel's lame excuse for a post.

I posed them the "hypothetical" about foreclosures & 1099s. Oh yeah - and I told them it was about of their customers so maybe they'll be to embarrassed to answer. But if they do, I'll let you know their response and we can put the tax issue to bed once & for all. Cheers

R-Boy,

Sorry that Nigel likes to cyberstalk people. It's a shame he thinks what he is doing is some kind of payback for questioning his manhood and Casey's business decisions.

What a fracking idiot that guy is.

Jade said...

Rob - it is GORGEOUS here right now. Everything is in bloom (haven't gotten to the cherry blossoms yet, but the other flowering trees by the pentagon are all blooming)

The cherry blossoms are great in the friendship heights area of the district as well as the tidal pool (where the crowds will be).

I think peak date is the 4th.

I forgot how amazing springtime is here. I've been spending the last week planting my garden (one of the small joys of owning an overpriced home in the DC metro area)

sorry rob, forgot your question about what to wear. I've been wearing nice breezy skirts, so if you're into that they'll work well. Otherwise you'll do fine with a short-sleeved shirt and jacket. And pants of course.

Rob Dawg said...

None of my man-skirts match my new murse so pants it is unless Nigel can assure me a new outfit is tax deductible. ;-)

Jade said...

it's all good, rob! Just put it on your credit card and don't pay it off!

aaron said...

rob,
I'd go with some shorts too. Yesterday it got up to 80.

here is the 10 day forecast

http://www.weather.com/weather/tenday/22311?from=36hr_topnav_undeclared

I wear shorts in the 60's. However being from Cali you will probably want pants.

aaron said...

oh and remember...you can't pack heat in DC. now in virginia its another story. in fact you don't need a gun permit to carry if you don't conceal it.

Jade said...

is that true about VA gun laws? I had no idea! I should have brought my holster back from Iraq! A girl's gotta know how to accesorize...

Rob Dawg said...

aaron,
I wear shorts and polo shirt 300 days/yr. I didn't drop off my thesis borrow $200 from my uncle and ride my 400cc motorcycle cross country just to wear some monkey suit. Indeed my favortite employer had a firm policy of no ties and had the CEO of Raytheon's snipped cravat framed in the lobby as proof.

Air Travel: Cargo pants, Hawaiian shirt over Hanes colored Pocket t-shirt. Mackbook, digital camera, analog watch with cloth band. Neck pillow, comb, t-brush, sci-fi paperback, undies, tube socks, pen. mini old spice deodorant stick, $1 sunglasses, gum, baby powder.

With this I figure I can McGyver my way out of anything less than a mid-air collision.

Jade said...

oh dear. hawaiian shirts. it really is tourist season :-)

aaron said...

yes jade it is true. You cannot carry while consuming alcohol or drugs. Of course the cops will probably check your id etc to make sure there are not outstanding warrants etc and that the gun is registered to you. see below

In Virginia, one may carry a handgun in the open with no license. Loaded handguns on the seat or dashboard in plain view while in a vehicle are fine. Carrying concealed in places that serve alcohol is prohibited, even licensed, but open carry there is allowed.

@Bemused guy, that's great, keep us informed

@R-Boy Always respected what you have done here in this blog, thanks

As for everyone's favorite moron, what the guy doesn't seem to understand, is that there are people more dangerous than he is, better at cybersleuthing than he is, have more money at their diposal than he does, have more hair than he does, are tougher than he can ever hope to be, and are meaner than he can imagine. Let him keep danicng in the minefield, he's obviously already starting to lose it, and he is definitely starting to slip. One big mistake and he is history.

Rob, have you read that "book" that Raytheon's CEO puts out for free?

My favorite quote goes something like this....."If your dinner partner is mean to the waitress, they are not a nice person."

Basically when I told them we were discussing "Our Hero" I received a bellyful of laughter. Along with, "I think he'll want to be talking with his CPA." I sensed a tear was being wiped from an eye. Sorry it wasn't the definitive answer we were looking for from CW but take from that what you will.

Oh, wow. Did he make a new post about it or is it tucked into the comments somewhere?

And he should try cyberstalking me. I have quite the checkered past, I was a bad girl in my youth. I, however, have learned from my mistakes and come out on the other side a better (and wiser) person.... unlike some people we know.

That is why I defended Casey when that jackass encouraged him to kill himself. People DO change. I'm living proof.

....that's your job? :)

Dumbfounded said...

Hmmm....

Why do I have a gut feeling Nigel is one of Casey's personal lenders from last fall? Snowflake has mentioned a few times how he got some private sucker to front him more money even as deep in the hole as he was.

As I imagine it...Nigel was not getting paid back from Casey and the cornflake is too vain to admit his mistake. After all, Narcistic Nigel can never admit that he could have been wrong.

So perhaps Nigel's going to all ends defending Casey because he's accepted the IAFF site, or some portion of the clicks or whatever from it in lieu of the money owed. That would explain the Utah trip. Was it to pass the reigns of the blog over and somewhat settle the debt?

I don't know. Maybe I am clairvoyant. Maybe not. Anyhow, it's just my gut feeling on the Nigel/Casey romance.

Miguel said...

....that's your job? :)

LOL!

Actually, YOU'VE been stalking ME, fiendish minx that you are.
