Shut Down the [IAFF] Blog?

Casey reports: ...shut the blog down. She [G] has had enough and she has very valid points. So I have a very hard decision to make. I will save that for another post.
The Snowflake is looking for a snowstorm within which he can loose himself. We may not be willing to look away but he is unable to crash in silence. Besides the earliest haterz™ told him this was the right thing to do. Can't have them validated.

I've never heard of an $80 server. What's he talking about? Is that $80/month?

Why give up free Zewg hosting for this latest clusterfuque? The world may never know. Or care.

Sprezzatura said...

As I said earlier, given that Casey admitted to CNet that he deliberately posts provocative things on the blog to stir up the haters, odds are very high that this "threat" is just there to get everyone riled up.

Benoit™ said...

We all know he wouldn't dare shut down the blog. Seriously, his current debt situation may not be enough to make him suicidal, but ending the blog might. The whole thing, as usual, is a gigantic troll. How many cards does Gaysey™ have left to play?

1) I'm going to end the blog!! I'll really do it this time, you wait and see!

2) Galina's pregnant.

2a) By another man.

3) I've decided to come out of the closet.

3a) ... and move to Salt Lake City to live with a special someone who shall remain unidentified

4) CashCall repo'ed my stuff

... what else am I missing? :-p

I'm still getting "server error" when I attempt to bring up IAFF.

BTW - Casey did look horrible in those photos by CNET.

The funniest one, however, was of him in the office, on his blue ball, with the murse over his shoulder. Geez, just like the queen of England who carries her purse around the castle!

Question: How was someone able to confirm Casey's mother co-signed for his "corporate credit" account?

Fool said...

Flailing forward,

You can get a dedicated server from GoDaddy for $80/month (less than that actually). I have one & am very happy with it.

Rob Dawg said...

Direct quote from Young Dandelion himself on his latest post.

Understand this is just a lameazz trollz from a desperate unmonetized blogfart squeezing out his last few sour notes.

The Endgame Is Afoot said...

nth! (WTF cares?)

My old provider was taking a loooong time to get the dedicated server provisioned…

It's Heekee's fault!

I just wish we planned this out a little better.

"We"?? He must have a mouse in his pocket.

Benoit™ said...

BTW, R-Boy™, with regards to information about Casey's Mom, "Medusa" Serin, I found my original post from January, back when I was a newbie to this blog --

Her e-mail address is AnnaSerin@grant.k12.ca.us

... and her work phone is:

916-286-5152

The webpage where I got this information is here (it even has her office hours!!)

@ Benoit

Don't forget:

The Utah wrappers are coming to get me!

And you're posting info about slacker boi's mom because...?

Rob Dawg said...

[this is only a joke]

The Utah wrappers are coming to get me!

And all the lawyers and judges and bailiffs and detectives and defendants are named either Smith, Young or Johnson.

Anonymous said...

Oh, there are PLENTY of new topics for Casey to explore:

"I can't make my first "corporate credit" payment and my Mom's mad."

"I found a buyer for the $1.5 billion casion, but they won't work with me."

"I went to a debtor's anonymous meeting - those guys are loosers."

"My murse was stolen."

"I can't pay my speeding ticket - I need $250 or go to jail. Anyone care to donate?"

"I've recalculated my debts, here's the new spreadsheet."

"I borrowed $50 from Galina's purse and now she's steaming made."

"Galina has changed her view on divorce and believes mental abuse is equal to physical abuse."

R-Boy said...

Because my detective hat is getting put on and im gonna see what I can turn up.

Uhhh, yeah. so, anyone notice just how many ads Casey now has?

He has yahoo ads, keyword ads, foreclosure.com ads, two text link ads.

I think its time for us to stop visiting.

Them's alot of links.I dont know how he gets paid for em. Do you have to click on em, or just by pageviews or sumtim? (aside from his 100 buck text links?)

Sprezzatura said...

R-Boy: use Firefox and the Adblocker Plus plug-in. You can blank out better than 95% of all web ads that way.

How he gets $ for each ad varies -- the ones he sells directly are flat-fee based, but the Yahoo ads are probably PPC. Dunno about the others, but PPC is generally the standard.

Rob Dawg said...

Anna Serin is reliably reported as being a guarantor of the credit line granted Hammar Investments. Her relationship to the "boi" is not necessarially relevant to the facts of her exposure to a corporation known to be engaging in questionable financial dealings. Think about it in reverse. EN knows the name of the unamed backer of Hammar but won't allow it to be published because it is a relative?

Benoit™ said...

anyone notice just how many ads Casey now has?

Well, maybe we can visit the links (after cutting and pasting them, that the clicks don't come directly from IAFF), and tell the people exactly who they're dealing with... between doing that and Casey's natural bumbling, they'll all be gone soon enough. It worked well enough with Duane, PRLinkBiz, and to some extent, Nigel.

Entitlement and America's Youth

I am a little in shock. I was just flipping through the telly after a long day at the office and settled on MTV Europe.

It was a show following a girl's Sweet 16 Party. In Atlanta. Good Lord. Limo. Major streets closed off. MARCHING band. Dancers. Designer frock. Mega party at a nightclub for the school chums. Several major rap bands. Several wardrobe changes.

Throughout she was whining about wanting a new Mercedes. One of the hired bandmembers looked at her aghast and announced to the camera, "She is 16, has a marching band and wants more for her birthday!"
Yes, even the person paid to be her surprise was so appalled at the excess he stated it on camera.

If anyone cares she got the Merc at the end of the night. Best moment was when someone threw up on her arm.

What happens to a 16 year old who has that sort of attention lavished on her at that age? What does she grow up to become? I hoped they were the end but what of the Serins are the beginning?

Rob Dawg said...

"I borrowed $50 from Galina's purse and now she's steaming made."

Ummmm, isn't that "steaming maid?"" [ducks]

flailing forward said...

Thanks Fool. I just checked out the Go Daddy server package. Anybody have a guesstimate of what kind of bandwidth IAFF goes through a month? The $80 deal comes with 500G.

lawnmower man said...

How many cards does Gaysey™ have left to play?

Oh, I can think of a few:

There's the spiralling-the-drain theme:

* Galina Serin: You're Out!
* Mummy Serin: You're Out!
* Chris Record: You're Out!
* Donation Quest Two: Buy Me a Tent!

or the lender-crackdown theme:

* 22K Balloon Due Tuesday!
* Oops, That $50K Note Was Real!
* CashCall Visits: No More Bittersweet Jetta!
* Will the Uncles Break My Legs?

or the Cosmo-quiz self-diagnosis theme:

* Galina Thinks I'm a Compulsive Risk-Taker
* Galina Thinks I'm a Compulsive Liar
* Looking in the Mirror: Am I a Narcissist?
* In Two Minds: Bipolar or Not?

or the one I'm hoping for:

* Talking Mortgage Fraud with the FBI
* Corporate Veil Pierced, Juice Had
* Sacramento District Attorney: NO DEAL!
* I am Facing Jail Time

That posts reeks of early stuff from the Earth Mission blog....respect other people's privacy, but want to 'brain dump' type stuff. And the early IAFF when his 'associates' called to tell him how fucking stupid it was to post that stuff online, he pulled the plug on the site for a bit, but the inner attention whore won out.

Anyone else think it's telling that Mama Serin signed off on this? What kept Aleskey, the head of the clan, from doing the manly 'handling financial matters' thing?

The problem is I got so many things cooking that I can't afford to be spread thin. I HAVE to pick a focus and stick to it. Unfortunately I wasn't able to monetize IAFF quickly enough and now its nothing but a big pain for me (though I DO get good contacts from it).

I'm thinking of selling IAFF. I've had a couple of offers. One guy
(Nigel) is offering 10K.

Would you still be interested in buying it? Did you take a look at the stats login I sent you?

Agreed. I don't plan to visit IAFF but once a week; keep that

IAFF is all he has now. And he's thinking of shutting it down? Gimme a break. He'll shut it down when the cops come, no sooner. And it will, every day, feature more and more bullshit items like "my name was mentioned in Stern Magazine, but hey! I can't read German!".

Speaking of dumb...

I read Lawnmower Man's exchange with Nigel where the bald one claims we all are idiots because "we" check CS's flickr account. He says we are being played and the kid is a genius for it.

How's that Nigel? Really, you don't say? How is it we are "ALL" checking dumbass' flickr site regularly? Do you know this for a fact? I surely don't. If I do it's because there are one or two haters who do and post the info here. So fucking what dumbass? So your powers of deduction assume we are all "idiots?"

You sure have a lot of contempt for people...not a good trait for a mortgage broker but then again you are a multi business failure so I guess the contempt is bitterness and jealousy of people like us who are all successful in one way or another.

Fuck you baldy. Your blog sucks and your attitude is worse. Casey has NEVER shown himself to be very smart. ANYBODY can tease and fuck with their readership and THAT is a given. If what you say is true, then Casey's majority readership are haters or why else would he care about a few hundred of us?

You are an awful human being and I hope you fail hard.

SOOOOOOOOOOOOOO the reason for my rant....

I'm gonna hold off on selling it. I'm starting to get pretty good interest in the $100/mo text link ads and my other advertising has been going pretty good. So its producing income.

Speaking of the flickr acct, someone else pointed out that the # of photos on Sercasey's site means that he has a paid acct at something like $25/mo, not the freebie. Anyone know if this is the case?

Rob Dawg said...

The inital suspicions about anyone who tries to be associated with Casey needs to be reevaluated.

IAFF has apparent valueas a url and google search. Even preserving the Casey story as a museum site and commercializing the rest makes sense. That Casey can't do this does not speak ill of those who can.

TK said...

Interesting correspondence with Duane. Typical Casey hemming and hawing, even when it comes to making a phone call the guy can't commit to a realistic timeframe. Selling IAFF would be the one smart thing Casey has done. Which is why he won't do it. He'll drive the site into the ground, all the while selling a text link for $100 every so often (what do you want to bet anyone who's bought a text link from him talked him down to $50/mo. because of the guaranteed downtime?)

Anyway, like all the other haterz - I DARE HIM!

lawnmower man said...

I read Lawnmower Man's exchange with Nigel where the bald one claims we all are idiots because "we" check CS's flickr account.

What little of the exchange still remains. I've been questioning Nigel on the wisdom of associating with DUI Casey and Heekee, but he's deleted all those comments.

But on the "you haters" comment: Nigel's strategy has always been to paint the haters as a single-minded homogeneous group, defined only by their hate. You're either a hater or a supporter, either with him or against him.

Jade said...

wow. Nigel offered to buy IAFF for 10k?

Duane offered to broker a sale and casey backtracked?

Christ that boy is stupid.

NoDebtWhatSoEver™ said...

Rob, I've said it before (here I think), the site has some value, and in the right hands some real potential. I'd put in an offer myself, but it would mean having to deal with fliptard (see mails from Duane), which would be more hassle than creating a new site from scratch.

flailing forward said...

So let me get this straight, Casey contacts Duane about wanting to sell his site. Then he lets Duane do all the legwork of setting up a deal, only to then quit returning Duane's emails and calls. Then he changes his mind about selling because he gets two $100/mo text link ads. He blows Duane off, then a few days later IAFF's decline is pretty much sealed when C|Net reveals that his sole intent is to troll his readers to support ad revenue. Meanwhile his site craps out because he dicked over Heekee, he misses his traffic bonanza, pisses off the two text-linkers, and screws his Mom over on Mother's Day. Good things just keep on coming.

Nigel's Guest Blogger said...

Was that Casey outing Nigel as a 10k bidder for the site or was that Duane's interpretation?

It's funny to see so much effort to try to figure out how to monetize a blog full of critics.

TK said...

I notcied that somebody posted the grudgingly admired Casey's storytelling skills - i.e. how he trolls and keeps haterz hooked. Casey might have a productive future in film. He's just effing krazy enough too. And if he's gonna be in LA as a right hand man for a BH developer, what the hell?

lawnmower man said...

Sorry to be skeptical, but: does anyone feel like emailing Duane to verify that those comments are genuine?

Nigel Swabys Mom said...

Casey can't commit to a deal because he's greedy. The minute an opportunity comes his way, it compels him in his deluded thinking that he can somehow turn it into a better deal. Greed is always the motivation.

The good thing about that is he's always left empty handed.

What kind of idiot has the use of several million dollars, not only doesn't turn a buck but ends up in several hundred thousand dollars in debt with severly trashed credit? And still thinks he can turn a buck?

aaron said...

oooops he's back up and for how long.

Legion said...

@Duane

Thanks for the info, and I apologize for my words way back when...hell, it did appear like you were defending him back then, and jsut being associated with him...well you know.

I think I realize why Casey never follows thru, it actually came to me reading the back and forth emails between Casey and Duane...frankly, by always having pie in the sky ideas about how to make a ton of money...it just gives him hope. By actually working his way towards a goal, it becomes apparent to him that he is not going to make money at all.
"Some day when I have some time I am going to write a best selling novel that will be turned into a blockbuster mo..."

"Casey can't commit to a deal because he's greedy. The minute an opportunity comes his way, it compels him in his deluded thinking that he can somehow turn it into a better deal."

I think that's exactly his problem. Well-stated!

I am unclear how a site like IAFF really has that much value. Would the new owner milk it for ad revenue?

lawnmower man said...

I noticed that somebody posted the grudgingly admired Casey's storytelling skills - i.e. how he trolls and keeps haterz hooked.

Yeah, TK, that was me. Casey's an idiot, but he has been extremely successful at building and feeding a following.

I think he got a bit too cocky about it, though: his comments to C|Net about trolling the haters were almost boastful.

Big mistake, IMHO. There was a lot of suspicion building that he was yanking our strings, but there was also a general willingness to go along with it as long as the show continued to entertain. Revealing the manipulation kills the suspense.

In short ... Casey blew off a real inquiry to sell the site in favor of a bunch of BS possible sales. As usual, the Wrong Decision.

Stephanie J. said...

$10,000 for a built-in readership; that's pretty cheap; without even having to try.

Of course, I'm sure Nigel's 'witty' writing style; and 'panache' for finding riveting content will immediately drain any monetary value the site may have within just a few days.

It would be the equivalent of moving homeless drug-addicts and their many pets into a home.

Jade said...

Aaron - I still don't see it. Would he sell just the name/web address and keep the content?

Also it sounded from Duane's posts like Casey never did work out the deal with the No Limits Ladies. Ha!

Stephanie J. said...

@Sprezz
He's the King of wrong decisions. That's why he's so funny.

Dolph said...

Bemused,

I believe firmly that was Duane and not a troll. Too many things ring true with the post content, posting style and email header info.

I had originally emailed Duane back when CLUSA was in existence. I found him to be down to earth and really nice. He's really a good guy and I believe that really is him posting those email exchanges.

lurker said...

I suspect Casey is afraid of the hole he has already dug. If he was to get $100,000 for IAFF. It would immediately go to pay off debts and he would still be in a hole to big for him to dig out of. At this point he is using incompetance as a security blanket. As long as he has nothing of value they won't come to get him.

Dolph said...

Fellow CS Critics,

Duane just emailed me and confirmed that he is posting here. He wrote that he'd be back tomorrow and post more goodies.

Rob Dawg: Any chance we can start a new entry using Duane's posts? I think the beginning of the end of IAFF is near.

Anonymous said...

"I think he got a bit too cocky about it, though: his comments to C|Net about trolling the haters were almost boastful."


Let him boast all he wants. At the end of the day he's the loser renting a room from his sister-in-law, no real income, no money in the bank, no credit, no assets, and without a clue how hard life is going to get for him.

The guy really has nothing going for him. No talent. No smarts. Nothing to bring to the table at all.

I mean how ironic is it that a guy buys 8 houses and in less than a year lost them all and can't pay the meager rent for a room without borrowing more money? What a looser!

Sprezzatura said...

@lurker -- good point. As things stand, he's currently more or less judgement-proof. Selling IAFF for big bucks might invite more attention.

Plus, there's no way he can sell it for enough $ to cancel out all his outstanding financial obligations. So if he sold it, he'd be without his only real asset and still facing debt. Why bother?

Aspeth said...

@C-corp and Steph J...that could be it. Or is it that he's so fucking self-absorbed he can't take the windfall, because he knows the creditors would be on it immediately?

Many of them read IAFF and the Hater sites with shocking regularity. If IAFF were to trade hands, I think they'd be knocking one another over to get judgements.

Just a thought.

Aspeth said...

whoops...didn't see lurker's post.

Thanks for confirming, dolph.

Zewg said...

The Duane posts are definitely legit, those emails have Casey written all over them.

I have an inbox full of similar exchanges.

Sprezzatura said...

We've been blessed with a visit from HeeKee?

mejustme said...

If he's got a domain that's worth a possible $10K, that's an asset that should be sold to pay his creditors, if they don't confiscate it first. (Are you listening, CashCall?)

Actually, I don't think the domain is worth much without the train wreck. It's Casey and his cautionary tale that attracts the media, which attracts fresh eyeballs. To turn it into a foreclosure resource, well, I suppose you could scrape some ad revenue from it every month, but without regular media attention and fresh incoming links, it wouldn't be worth very much. 10K hits per month drop to nothing when there's nothing to see (ask Jennifer Ringley).

While we're off the subject, a couple of people posted about a $22K note being due next week. Can you please refresh my memory about what he borrowed that money for, and from whom? Thx!

Anonymous said...

I guess we all scooped dickhead Nigel today eh? Now he can close that dumb ass DHC blog.

Nigel is going to be VEWY VEWY MAD once he sees what Duane has posted here. These posts make Casey look dumb and Nigel look like a manipulative fuck. Fuck Nigel. He is suck a fucking asshole looser.

Anonymous said...

Mejustme- Maybe Casey can work for Cashcall the way Gary Coleman does. He can also turn the IAFF site into a living cashcall ad and discuss how people can get 96% interest loans!

Anonymous said...

Interesting,

So this reporter fellow, Declan, is also the photographer. Viewing all six of his photos in the Casey gallery, two strike me:

The Jetta:
Why include it? As an object it is not beautiful nor unique. As a photograph, it is at first very interesting, but if I may offer this analysis:

You see, the nose of the vehicle is in shadow, while the rear is in light. This could be a metaphor to mean that Casey is heading towards darker times. Second, the rear is almost out of focus, while the front shows every last nick and defect. That might be symbolic of Casey's history rewriting- describing a time in the past with so much promise, yet vague in details, while in the present and future, his situation is more clearly poor and challenging.

View the portrait of him, perhaps the first proper one we've seen. I think back to that photo of the darker multicolored shirt with him smiling broadly and his head tilted, and compare it to this one. Is this the same person? Importantly, one is a photo chosen by him to be featured, a second one is not chosen by him. And in this more recent one, there is sadness. His hair should be trimmed, his shirt is not quite pressed, his face has a weariness that is genuine. Let's remember, this is a person who, having admitted to a) lying about occupancy, b) failing to disclose cash back, c) arranging closings to conceal from different lenders, protested that he shouldn't have to be incarcerated for his 'financial stress' had already been a great enough punishment!

Zewg said...

Sprezzatura,

Its me, I check in here a lot.

I always love a good laugh :)

flailing forward said...

Heekee, don't take that fliptard back. Leave him out in the cold with his $80 hamster server.

Jade said...

Heekee - tell us how it went down! I want a story!

lurker said...

No that we are determining IAFF has some value. Cashcall could sue asking for it or for it to be sold to repay their debt

Sprezzatura said...

Seriously, heekee. IAFF is a sinking ship, why not just let it go down?

Zewg said...

Well it all started back a few months ago when his server was down for like two days because he was overloading his free host so I offered to migrat the blog and host his account.

To be honest I felt bad for the guy, his blog was really the only successfull thing he had going for him and I thought that I could host his site on a shared server with minimum cost.

Unfortunately the blog is so big it consumes a lot of CPU cycles so I moved him to a semi-dedicated server where he would be guaranteed 20% of the CPU. Unfortunately with the large comment pages the blog started eating up the majority of the server and the people who own the server have an automated program that disables accounts that use too much of the CPU (its only fair to the other people on the box who are also guaranteed 20%).

I didnt want to back out on my commitment to host him so I ordered a dedicated box, unfortunately the data center I lease them from take like 7 business days to commission one and I am still waiting for a couple issues to be worked out.

Currently his site is using 67% of this "shared" box and will probably be shut down within 24 hours.

Unfortunately I am in Europe on real business at the moment so I only have limited access to the internet to help him migrate.

flailing forward said...

I don't know what Casey is doing, but his stats are way up. Few comments (16 posted and 28 in queue) and the site's been down half of the day. Not sure what's going on. IAFF stats

Zewg said...

Sprezzatura,

It is a sinking ship, thats why everyone keeps going back there.

I enjoy the site as much as the rest of you do, just doing my part. ;)

Stephanie J. said...

@HeeKee
Have some fries with mayo and some mussels for me while you're in Belgie. Please. :(... <--me being homesick

Zewg said...

Sure thing Stephanie,
I leave for Brussels tomorrow, and I love mayo on my fries :)

Aspeth said...

I didnt want to back out on my commitment to host him so I ordered a dedicated box

The irony of the fact that everyone in KC's radius lives up to their obligations, while he continues to pick and choose what part of life he'd like to engage today is just strange.

@Steph J....there's nothing like belgian mayo, that's for damn sure.

flailing forward said...

How funny will it be if IAFF gets yanked right before he's featured on MSN? (Midnight - 9 AM tonight)

Say what you want, but Casey's fails with style. He's a failure artiste. He's got the failure razzmatazz.

Aspeth said...

@anon 3:01...but even though the hair is grown out and shaggy, it's still bleached and highlighted. Check the colour difference. So the pauper has been to the malon

Aspeth said...

Heekee...so what's the deal-- Do you have anything to do with RCS?

flailing forward said...

Also this is the first time in the history of EN where the newest post didn't immediately become the most active thread.

Zewg said...

Aspeth,

What is RCS?

Anon1 said...

@lurker
If Casey did sell IAFF for 10K, there is no way he would apply that money to his debt. He would try to leverage it and fail miserably.

BTW, Casey looks like sh!t in those pictures. His hair is greasy looking and he needs a cut. And he's ghastly pale.

Thanks for answering these questions, Heekee. It *is* appreciated.

Aspeth,
I am not really involved with the Nigel and Casey beyond helping with the IAFF site.

I have talked to Nigel a few times since he was going to be helping Casey with IAFF. He seems like a nice guy from talking to him, I never followed, or got involved with any of the blog drama however.

Anonymous said...

Zweg-

I think a part is missing from your history. Can you tell us in your own words about the events surrounding the removal or his wifes pictures on zweg and the addition of a zweg search area on IAFF? Did you insist on this search area to comply with his request? Etc.

Aspeth said...

Heekee...I do appreciate your willingness to answer the questions, but I kind of feel like you're dancing on this one.

Do you know who writes RCS? A simple yes or no would do.

flailing forward said...

I kind of miss the Galina gallery. A lot of the comments were over the top, but a lot were funny as hell.

C-Corp Man said...

Heekee: A person can be nice on the phone but be a complete dick behind their back. The most obvious proof that Nigel is an asshole is in his DHC posts. He ***SAYS*** Nacho/T is a nice person YET he outs her.

He calls others assholes, idiots and lumps anybody who disagrees with him into the "hater" camp. I am sorry but I know very "NICE" people who are great on the phone but when you talk to others you find they are duplicitous pricks.

Nigel deserves nothing.

Anonymous said...

Casey now has advertisers, apparently paying $100 each for links.

I have written to each of them, telling them that Casey is an admitted and unrepentant criminal, and that as long as they continue supporting him, I will not even consider doing business with them.

Please do the same.

The first is Joe Cline (info@joecline.com). He is an affiliate of Coldwell Banker, so let him know that you also will not be doing business with Coldwell Banker in general.

Say the same thing to Coldwell Banker: http://www.coldwellbanker.com/home/contact/contact_form.jsp

The second is Nationwide Mortgage (branchmgr@nationwidemortgages.net).

Please be polite but firm.

Thank you.

Zewg said...

I contacted Casey shortly after Google dropped him since the Google search box was no longer working.

I asked if he would be interested in using my search engine instead.

A while passed and he emailed me requesting that I remove photos of his family that showed up on the image dump.

I removed the photos as a courtesy since people were making a lot of mean comments about his mom and his sister.

I didnt make any requests or demand any favors in return.

"
Hello,

Casey Serin, of http://IAmFacingForeclosure.com/, has recently said on his blog that he is getting free hosting from zewg.com, apparently in exchange for a zewg search box that he has placed on his website.

Mr. Serin is an admitted and unrepentant criminal, having defrauded lenders for, literally, millions of dollars. So long as you continue to support Mr. Serin in this way, I will not even consider using zewg.com's services.

Please reconsider your support of this criminal.

Thank you.

Heekee,

I applaud you for wanting to help young Mr. Serin but don't you feel he's taking advantage of you? Charity is a good thing and all but come on.

I do applaud you on your free speech initiatives. I disagree with all the race baiting comments on your board but overall free speech is a wonderful thing. Too bad some people you associate with do not understand this.

Anonymous said...

Mr. Zweg-

It seems contradictory to me that you take down vulgar posts about Casey's wife because they were "mean", but allow, in fact everything short of encourage, the despicable remarks at campidiot--- or do you not find those mean as well?

Zewg said...

Dolph,

He may be taking advantage of me, but a server is a small price to pay for the entertainment of IAFF.


I am a firm believer in free speech, however the influx of hate spam on CI is growing very tiresome.

As soon as we start deleting threads the same gang of idiots squeal about being censored.

In the end it raises the question, is an uncensored and anonymous message board really feasible?

Im really not sure.

flailing forward said...

Dear Mr. Heekee,

It has recently come to my attention that you are supporting one Mr. Casey Serin through your Host A Semi-Vegan Program. However, you may be unaware that Mr. Serin is an admitted murse-wearer and wheatgrass user. Furthermore, it has been conclusively proven that he does indeed fuck sock.

Please consider the damage that your association with Mr. Serin can do to your business, whatever it is. If you continue to support failure enthusiasts like Mr. Serin I assure you I will no longer use your little Zewg search box.

Sincerely,
Flailbert F. Forwardson

"personal information" is one of the few things that a Mod will delete if posted at CI.

While "free speech" is allowed, the type of slander that apparently goes on at RCS will not be tolerated.

lawnmower man said...

Oh yes he is: read again.

Snowflake tried to move the blog from Heekee's hosting to a dedicated server at GoDaddy; failed dismally blaming GoDaddy for not providing support that he hadn't paid for; and is now back on the semi-dedicated hosting provided by Heekee.

Meanwhile, Heekee, feeling some bizarre commitment to Casey, ordered a fully dedicated server for him which is not ready yet but to which Casey will move as soon as it's available.

Beats me why Heekee is actually *paying* Casey's way here, but what do I know?

In a lot of ways Casey's peripatetic web hosting mirrors his real life: latch on for a cheap or free ride for as long as possible, until his welcome is long outstayed and he's kicked out and onto the next enabler.

Yeah, you're going to have to prove Nigel is behind RCS first before you go to the Real Estate Board, otherwise you're setting yourself up for him to come back on you for harassment. And you'll have to identify yourself because they aren't going to take anonymous complaints seriously.

By the way, Byron Goates is Nigel's boss and owner of Integrity First. They're buddies, so you aren't going to get very far complaining to him.

Then again, I have a feeling he may get tired of Nigel bringing in no mortgages and a ton of negative publicity.
