Re: Casey Serin

First of all, I am NOT Casey and I an NOT Nigel!

He doth protest.

Study the writing styles and that should be evident, at least to more reasonable minds. (But then, I consider my target audience; thus shant question the tainted mentality of them whom queue otherwise.)

Tad judgemental and inflammatory eh?

Secondly; while I can understand why many of you pick on Casey,

Mind reader and psychologist. Must be fun at parties.

I cannot and do not condone

Guess what God of the Known Universe; you cannot condemn either. Get over yourself.

the utter depravity

Thank you, thank you, we'll be here through the entire trainwreck. Try the veal.

and hypocritical flavor most (but not all) of you demonstrate.

I check the condiments aisle and the spices and even baking products. Couldn't find hypocritical flavor anywhere. Everywhere I looked however, Eau De Troll was on clearance by the gallon.

I have seen this kid (Casey) portrayed as a con, a thief, a mental defective, the single cause for rising property costs, a scam artist, manipulator, an a** and the devil incarnate;

You missed a few. Be sure to leave you name and address at the door and we'll get you the full list.

but never for what he TRULY is…

A scared individual facing a daunting task, recovery from great financial folly of his own making! Nothing more, nothing less. A person facings growing pressure from many and varied sides, which often manifests in poor choices. (But I sense, and pray, he will become a better man for it.)

Now you've done it. You've attempted to humanize our play mouse. He is not anything more than a toy for enjoyment. He cannot feel fear or any other emotion. That's been proven time and again. He does not care, try, strive, act responibly, accept responsibility, empathize, sympathize, prioritize or -ize at all. He is not a man and thus will not emerge a better man.

Thus, enough with the bulling!

Casey Serin is a person in crisis,

Uhhhh yeah. Your point in all this rambling?

one facing overwhelming calamity that would crush the vast majority of peons who so enthusiastically rush to judgment against him; based entirely upon what they read or have read. These same poor souls, the Haterz so coined, arrogantly point fingers of distain toward Serin; all the while coveting their cautious little lives, plagued by no risk. Whereas life without risk is dull, boring, mundane and filled with endless days of gazing at computer screens – geekely wishing for something better. I pity you.

Oh, haterz™ are jealous of Casey's flight from the nest up at the top of the stupid tree, hitting every branch on the way down as he plummets into a pile of sh!tstorm. If only the haterz™ had the wherewithall to juggle chainsaws on a tightrope over alligators with no practice like Casey.

Your breed is not uncommon, you’re a dime a dozen; cheep as blades of grass!

As common as it is these days to describe oneself as a haterz™ I can think of a far more common (in both senses of the word) net denizen; The Anonymous Troll.

In contrast are the risk takers whom enjoy great reward, and yes, often great loss and devastation. Yet these same gamblers, the dicemen, the ones bold enough to pursue their dreams (even in the face of disaster)? These are the achievers, whom overcome not folly but doubt and scorn.

Interesting that you use gambling metaphors. Surely you meant visionary capitaists who contributed to society not the parasites who bled it.

At long last… Cut this kid some slack!

Been there. Done that. He spent the money on Ikea not Cashcall.

Whereas while you’re here to scorn Serin, I’m inclined to return the gestures. So bring it on, Haterz, show what you’re really made of; demonstrate my point by acting stupidly… I have every confidence you’ll do nothing less.

~The Hater Antagonist

Bring it on indeed. Kindly provide contact information as to where to "bring it." Ohhhhhh, all brave behind the bushes. Little child throwing snowballs at the gentleme's and ladies hats. We certainly shant response at the IAFF cesspool where you laid this turd. Please, man up. Become better for it. Accept the hardening the crucible will form for your telling us who you are. Thought not. Yawn.

Uh, fella, there's a whole world of difference between taking a risk and blithely sleep-bouncing to financial suicide.

The Hobbit didn't break new ground or discover a new process for wealth creation, he lied on his loan applications, connived to get cashback, and blew the wad on crap.

But here's the deal, hotshot, if you REALLY think the Flipster Doofus is the dishwasher-safe rubber sex-toy, the why don't YOU underwrite his plans by loaning him YOUR own money?

Yeah...thought not.

Aspeth said...

I'm seeing some similarly stupid comments.

As of yesterday, Casey's pretty fresh out of Little Buddy and currently accepting applications to fill the role.

Of course, that means blatantly ignoring the words of men who have previously traveled that path and wear their battle wounds with exhausted wisdom....

Everything about the comment dawg posted reminds me of the crazy fucks who contact high-profile politicos and gov't agencies...the strange language ("them whom queue otherwise") the blind defense of the criminally stupid, the vague reference to the real topic that drives them ("gamblers, the dicemen, the ones bold enough to pursue their dreams (even in the face of disaster)")

12 pages??? I HATE MY BROWSER!

Man, that will be fun to read tonight.

lawnmower man said...

OK, here's the latest on Casey's hosting. Boy Wonder has the current version of IAFF up on new hosting; but he has left an old version live on the old hosting.

Which one you get depends on whether his most recent DNS change has propagated to you yet.

The old version of IAFF ends at "Foreclosed, Hated, and Down" and resolves to

The new version has the "but I don't really troll much, screw you haters" backpedalling and the beg-a-thon countdown. I was seeing this version from home this morning; the nslookup here suggests that the current IP for is

Eventually all the DNS changes will catch up and we'll all see the same IAFF again; for now, though, we're fragmented.

The same thing happened last time Snowflake moved, when Flailing Forward had a day of fun commenting on IAFF while the rest of us got nothing.

My problem is the media are now Haterz™ too. Media coverage is like leverage it can be a double edged sword, but it’s not like a gray area like speeding, mortage fraud, West Nile virus,tax evasion, breech of contract, corporate embezzlement and tax evasion. At first, when I was doing interviews it was all good, win-win, more traffic, but now the Newz Haterz™ have gone too far and are publishing the truth. How dare them say things about me that are true, this is even worse than Wells Fargo stealing their own money from me. I’m thinking of not doing any more interviews. These Truth Seekerz™ are taking up way too much of my valuable time that could be spent changing crappy web hosting providers. What I need is to find a creative way to make people believe my bullshit again. More on that later…….

By the way, the guy posting that comment obviously has a thesaurus on his favorites, whenever shitheads like that try to appear intelligent with their 'superfluous' use of the english language, my mind just shuts down.

It brings weeping tears of joy to my heart to read all of the latest happenings to casey.

I have been perusing as much as I could in the last week or so but I have been putting the finishing touches up on a 30 unit apartment complex that closed this morning.

See snowflake I know you read this let me give you some of the juicier tidbits on it.

When I got all of the estoppels back I realized the place was seriously undervalued...and in reviewing the expenses they were way out of wack simply by switching some of the services and some other things.

They had the initial cap rate at the time I was done last night I had it up to 7.2%.

And by the time I bring all of the rents in line in the next 6 months with the rest of the market it will be up to 8.5% (seriously the owners were out of state do not wanters that simply buried their heads in the sand the last 6 years and let a management firm milk them with ever increasing fees almost triple of what others charge). Oh BTW--that firm no longer manages those apartments...

Well sort of...see I dont really want the hassle of 30 renters...renters are just not my cup of I hired a new property manager to take care of all of it for me but you can bet your bottom dollar I will be all up in "their grill" daily for about an hour or so...see I dont want to be bogged down with what I have..I want to accumulate more.

Hell at the rate I am going I will be able to retire at 40 instead of 45 like I was initially planning.

8 Years to go baby, and its shuffleboard and canasta and pants up to my armpits for me.

And casey..I still work a w-2 job too.---I am such a looser.

On the topic of today's excitement lineup, let's not forget that today is also the day that DUI Cote is going to post fake emails about him/her/it getting haterz to hit on him/her/it. I'm going to make a prediction here: Rob Dawg may be one of those haterz. I know, I know, I'm going out on a limb and that's a long shot, but I stand by my prediction. My second prediction is that all of the haterz will have emails that can be gotten off of their blogs.

Here's the link.

If Robert Kiyosaki says “F” the haterz, then I say the same thing.

Robert Kiyosaki is a multi-millionaire, and just recently did a book with a billionaire - Donald Trump.

These are the people you should be listening to, millionaires and billionaires.

The haterz, as you call them, are probably stuck in their own rat race, and will never get out. They’re jealous you’ve accomplished more by the age of 24, than they have their entire lives!

Keep moving forward! Success is just around the corner for you.

And even though I don’t currently have a full-time job I HAVE been making money there and here.
You haven’t had a full time job for over a year. You couldn’t do one anyway as:
1. Your FICO is about 401
2. You’d never get up earlier enough to get there on time
3. You’d still be playing with your PDA blogging when you should be working.
You still don’t get it do you? You don’t have the commitment to the right (necessary?) things in life so you’ll never get round to doing them. Just one example, you’ve been saying “must focus” for about 6 months now, but we’ve yet to see you do it in any worthwhile way.

Declan McCullagh said one of your credit cards is backed by your mother. Would you confirm that?

Especially, during these stressful times I need to stay healthy and put good things into my body
Anyone reading this please check the pictures from the start of this saga and compare them to the recent ones from the CNET article. There was also one recently which showed Casey’s fingernail have a distinct blue hue. Casey you are not healthy. If anything your health has gone downhill over the last few months. Please get it checked out.

The story about the “the crappy GoDaddy dedicated server” is that you chose the package without support features and you are now complaining that they didn’t give you the support you wanted.

As for Kiyosaki, I read one of his books and thought it jumped around a bit and was full of warm words, platitudes and generalisations. When you check on the guy (see John T Reed and others), the guy writes fiction. Also, given that he was taught so well when he was a kid, why did it take him until his late 50s(was it?) before he started to become a success? Most successful people I know of were either well established or retired by their late 50s.

Two final points for you:
What are you doing about the $22k balloon payment due next week?
What will you do if Cashcall or another creditor take action to seize this blog as an “asset” that has some value?

Robert said “Screw the critics?”
Yeah I remember that from your youtube video.
But I also remember that Robert said “You are a greater fool”

Greater fool definition:

Person A buys a messed up property near the appraised price. He didn’t buy it wholesale. He hopes that he can find a fool who will buy the price at this ridiculous price.
Person B buys the messed up property from person A, and person A gets rid of property that will not normally sell for the price that person B paid for.
Person B = greater fool.

The dedicated box donated by is not gonna cut it.

It’s a little better than the semi-dedicated since they don’t shut me down for CPU usage. (and much better than GoDaddy’s crappy servers that don’t even work!!)

But being on the front page of MSN brought the server down to a crawl and caused intermittent downtime all night long. I’ve stayed up trying to keep it going but there is nothing I can do.

So, I just opened up an account with based on a friend’s recommendation.

They have “Grid hosting” for only $20/mo which I’m told is pretty “Digg proof” (MSN proof in my case). It’s actually a cluster of servers that allows any one site to burst without causing the “bad neighbor” effect of traditional shared hosting. It’s also more robust and scalable than a dedicated server (and MUCH cheaper).

I’m closing down the comments (to prevent confusion) and switching DNS for the 3rd time in 48 hours!!

As soon as you see the comments open back up you will know you’re on the new “grid” and things should be very smooth at that point.

People are angry with you because we are all showing up at work every single day to PAY OUR BILLS and rarely get to treat ourselves to anything special (and I make good money). I can’t remember the last time I sprung for a Starbucks coffee but I’m sure it’s been at least a couple of years. Besides, for someone who is putting good things into their body, you’re looking kind of sickly there Casey. Also, stop baiting people - it’s quite boring.

At this time do whatever your wife tells you. Currently you have one mission, and one mission only: Save your marriage.

Debts comes and goes. Opportunities comes and goes as well. Your family is for life. Don’t mess with that.

Close down the blog and go get a job tomorrow. Show your wife that you can break your pattern. Otherwise you’ll soon be without your marriage. Nothing is worth that.

In all trouble in life you need one stable thing. Don’t mess with family. Those foreclosed houses means nothing. The debt means nothing. Everybody fails from time to time. But whatever you do, do not fail your family.

Your wife has drawn the line. Respect that line. It’s not an unfair line. It’s very reasonable.

Get a job, and turn your financial independent project into a spare time hobby for now. You don’t have to stop chasing your dreams. Just do it during the evening instead.

Get a stable job, with a stable income and stable working hours. It is not about the stable income. It is not about paying your debt. It is not about you and your dreams. It is about respecting your wife and saving your marriage. Period.

Dude, I’m an entrepreneur. I know all about dreams, visions and chasing bigger tomorrows. I know how it is when that entrepreneurial spirit is who you are and how normal jobs comes in the way of that. But nothing is bigger than your God and your family. Your dreams are nothing without your God and without your family.

Save your marriage. Get a job. Close the blog. Be entrepreneur during the evening. Then, when you’ve proven yourself during the evening, and your wife supports you, make it the day time thing again.

I never heard of you until today but, man, did you get yourself in a heap of trouble.

As far as I can tell, you are a compulsive gambler, debtor, and shopper with unusually high self-esteem and a massive impulse control and judgment problem.

At first, reading your blog made me angry. How could someone who made such idiotic, immature, and selfish decisions have the gall to pretend that he was in any position to give advice to others? How could such a person continue to make the same mistakes and not see the error in their ways? As the quote attributed to Einstein goes, “insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.” How could a reasonable adult expect that he should be entitled to a passive income promised by RE con artists?

At the same time, I think I feel bad for you more than anything. I’m the same age as you and have a partner of over five years. I am also in debt, but my debts are consolidated fixed rate federal loans on deferment until I finish my PhD (in like ten years). Like you, I refuse to get a normal job like a normal person. Instead, I earned a fellowship with a stipend and I live on that money. It isn’t a fortune, but I don’t live in the fantasy of getting rich quick. And that is the crucial difference between you and me. You have internalized the notion that you deserve something for nothing RIGHT NOW. And you will pay for that.

I hope you can turn your life around. I recommend you start stocking up on Ramen noodles today, stop spending money on luxuries (and most of the expenses you list are luxuries by any reasonable standard), and learn to be an adult.

Hosting, domain names, servers, etc. are all high paying PPC keyword terms. This post was primarily to get snowtard some good keywords for ContentLink to place high paying ad links on.

Casey, I’m finding it difficult to believe that you would be THAT stoopid so as to tell CNET that you bait and string along your readers. Did you think we wouldn’t read that? Of course, it was already obvious that you were doing just that to begin with.

So, what’s bringing in more dough: Yahoo!, ContentLink, affiliate/CPA ads or text link sponsors? (We’ll assume you’ve secured $200/month from text link sponsors, seeing as there are two. As fragile as your mad biz skillstm are, they probably negotiated you down to $20/quarter…)

I do not believe Casey truely understands the damage he has done to both himself and GALINA.

Ten years from now anyone who wants to search the Internet about Galina Serin or Casey will be served dozens of pages about their liar loans and involvement in the fraud.

As Casey keeps this blog online, he continues to ensure Galina and his reputation is further destroyed for decades to come.

Keep this blog up Casey! There would have been no chance anyone would have looked deeply into your background and posted info about Galina if you hadn’t run this blog.

Thank you for exposing Galina and providing us with the information we all need to make intelligent, well researched decisions.

AdBlock is good.

I don’t run ad blocking software because I do run/work on sites running ads, so I need to be able to see them. But, as long as you don’t click on the ads, you’re generally okay. You’ll run up the impressions, but unless a site owner is getting paid on a CPM (cost per thousand impressions) basis then they don’t get a dime just for seeing an ad. Actually, it makes their eCPM drop.

Also, with CPM ads, unless it’s a really major site with tons of traffic, the chances are pretty good that a couple dozen impressions won’t garner more than a penny or two anyway. CPM is generally used with those annoying banner ads where you have to punch the monkey. (Hmmm… Idea: banner ads for EN where you slap the snowtard…) Those will generally only pay a buck (or less) for 1,000 impressions…

This web advertising lesson has been brought to you by… Well, who the hell cares anyway…

Longtime hater, first time poster. Love your blog. Just to give you a bit of insight into the hater psychology here - what your blog provides is the fulfillment of two basic psychological needs: to see ones self as more successful than ones neighbors and to see the foolish punished for their folly. If your boss yells at you or your wife is a raving b**** , all you have to do is visit and read about Casey’s latest failed exploits and you can instantly feel better about yourself because you’re not hundreds of thousands of dollars in debt and living in your sister-in-laws spare bedroom.

This is gold a gold mine you have. Whatever you do, don’t tamper with a successful formula. If you got a 9 to 5 job, started slowly paying back your debt and started to go to night school for accounting, you traffic would fall to 0. Please keep up the hair-brained investment schemes and luxury item purchases. Seriously. Anyone can work hard and make a few bucks and put them away in an S and P index fund. But none of us will start a highly trafficked blog that makes us an Internet phenomenon. That is a domain of only the few.

Casey, now that you’ve come out and said you’re trolling for comments (and ad revenue), we can dispense with the formalities of the haterz/hateez relationship. Perhaps now we can make this more of a collaborative blog. You can poll us (haterz) as to what are some things that you can do that will really piss us off. Then we can all vote on which is the most irritating, and you can write a post about doing it. Maybe we can even help! Then we’ll all act really mad and do our haterz thing and then look at ads and stuff. Meanwhile, you can sit around and think of new ways to screw up the server.

I don’t know about AdBlock, but AdBlock Plus allows you to define exceptions - e.g. “don’t block ads on this page, or this site”.

Additionally, AdBlock Plus is just generally superior to AdBlock. I highly recommend switching.

unless a site owner is getting paid on a CPM (cost per thousand impressions)

An “M” means “Mega”, which is a million, not a thousand. A thousand would be “CPK”, i.e. “Cost Per Kiloimpression”, not “CPM”, “Cost Per Megaimpression”.

So is it really CPK, not CPM? Or is it really million, not thousand?

Hi Casey,

With that CNET article, I think you’ve just guaranteed yourself special attention from The Man. That FBI agent quoted in the article says they are only going after serious cases of mortgage fraud (if yours doesn’t count as serious, I don’t know what is), and all this publicity you’re ginning up may be perceived as taunting them. You are seriously angering a lot of people who have played by the rules, and many of them are demanding action.

Just saying, Casey. I get the feeling that you still do not understand that you may be facing serious prison time. This isn’t about pushing our buttons to generate ad revenue. Do you understand that you could be going to FEDERAL PRISON?

Hey Kid:

“I don’t mind being foreclosed”

That’s your problem, my little gnomelike metrosexual.
You didn’t “earn” those homes fairly, you didn’t work to occupy or improve them…it was all “easy come and easy go”.

But while you were dickin’ around playing “Tycoon”, there were families that could have been living there and taking pride in those homes…

” “The world’s most hated blogger‿ ”

Don’t get all weepy and melodramatic…it’s unhobbitlike.

Very few people hate you. What’s hated is the waste and the defctive system that allowed someone as callow and lazy as you to abuse it.

At worst, you’re detested…and have you noticed that the closer someone is to you, the more they seem to despise you?

“but being down really REALLY sucks!”

Hmmm, you spent $80.00 (that you don’t have),for a new hosting service for the blog that you might now close?

You’re a hobbit, kiddo, not a troll…stop playing one on the interwebs.

” She 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. ”

Interesting turn of phrase you used to end that with.

A lot of us were hoping you’d get a clue in time to resurrect something of your mess of a life.

Any hope I had for you; any goodwill just went out the window. It was bad enough when you shamelessly begged for money here to pay bills, then spent it on God-knows-WHAT (probably another fun trip) but the CNET article is just another instance of you giving your readers the finger. By admitting you troll us and push our buttons to drive up the comments……you are just slapping us in the face ONE MORE TIME.
That is it for me. I am leaving this site, never to return. I hope you get arrested and do the time you so richly deserve, in a federal prison, with a 265# cellmate named Bubba drooling over your skinny white azz. You have stolen, lied, begged, stolen some more, and claim you are going to pay all your creditors back. Yet you still continue to borrow money to live on with NO clue that you need to go out and actually WORK for a living. Somehow, you believe you are too good, too above work. We common folk that go to our jobs every day took pity on you and some actually sent you money. Did you appreciate that? HELL NO. You believe you are ENTITLED to every thing. You make me ill.
This is the last straw. I was rooting for you to overcome all this but you have made it abundantly clear you are nothing but a lazy, manipulative liar and a crook.

I hope your readers leave you in droves. This blog won’t matter then. There will be no “haterz” to click on your ads. No one wants any advice from you anyway. You make more of a mess of your life every day, what makes you think you could actually help anyone else?

You are seriously delusional and need to be on medication.

Casey remember when you said this back 4 months ago?

My one goal this year:

$5,000 monthly passive income from real estate by age 25 on September 10th, 2007… 8 months from today. That’s 5K/mo net positive cashflow after property expenses, management and debt service. (Too aggressive??)


1) no lying (For Sure!)
2) no money down (?)
3) work part-time (?)

First order of business: put up a blog at tomorrow to track my progress. (Blog is up… still considering title, content, update frequency, search engine strategy, how much time to dedicate to it, etc)

Next: get out of my current mess as quickly as possible and eliminate all distractions. (Bankruptcy? Repay all debt? Settle Debt? How? Still considering…)

At the same time: start building my team of advisors and professionals so I can start analyzing deals and financing options as soon as possible. (Started talking to people about my goal… there is progress)

UPDATE Jan 13th:

As you can see here and from the comments, the 2007 goal is still in planning stage. I made the goal and then as I started talking about it here and with other people, different issues and concerns started coming up.

This morning I spent several hours talking to my wife about goals. Her 2007 goals/intentions for me and/or us:

1. Save her credit - no late marks and no BK!!
2. Pay off her 27K of debt ASAP
3. Have 12K set aside for a year of school at UC Davis which she will transfer to in the summer
4. Stable income - what I have right now doesn’t feel stable to her

I’m glad we talked. Our communication hasn’t been the best lately about all this stuff. She did appreciate me making a detailed financial statement and sharing it with her this morning.

She very much did not appreciate being unaware of the 50K Countrywide note, the 22K personal note and the other 5K personal note. That’s my fault because I have been running around like crazy trying to fix this mess so that she doesn’t have to worry about a thing and neglected to discuss some of this stuff with her. However, not discussing important financial decisions really hurts our marriage. Better communication should be my goal for 2007 too!

You’re half way to September, so how about a breakdown on your goals and your % of success?

More questions:

a. Did Nigel really offer you $10K for this site? If so why in the world would you not jump on it?

b. Why did you blow Duane off when he offered to help?

oh my God….

The EN haterz are now congratulating one another for being mentioned in an article ABOUT CASEY. You know their sad little ego’s have little boners over being mentioned in a real live article.

Something tells me that the overwhelming majority of the readers will look at the obsession of these haterz as pretty pathetic. Right in the article Casey admits that he is playing them for suckers, and they are dumb enough to keep coming back. Sad little lives. No wonder Robert Cote got a DUI. I’d drink too if I was reduced to basking in the reflected glory of a 24 year old failed real estate investor, that bought 8 homes, lost 7 of them in foreclosure and is looking at hundreds of thousands in unsecured debt.

60. dm
May 15th, 2007 at 8:05 pm
Okay, I’m going to play devil’s advocate here for a minute. Keep in mind: once a hater™, always a hater™.

Everybody keeps telling Casey to get a job and I agree. He doesn’t need to be working for himself. He doesn’t have the drive, motivation, positive ambition, etc. All he has are pipe dreams of “sweet deals”, wheatgrass fields and Macaroni Grill meals.

But, last I checked, this blog has had about 14,000 visitors today alone. If he can manage to keep the server up, that’s a pretty nice bit of traffic. And, if, say, 50% of those visitors are haters (how do we know, really?) that will never in their life click on an ad supporting fliptard here, that still leaves 7,000 visitors in one day to click ads.

Let’s say that he has a 0.5% CTR (click-through-rate) (on a visitor basis, not an ad impression basis). That’s 35 clicks in a day. Now let’s say that he gets, on average, $0.50 per click, which is not unreasonable. That gives him $17.50 per day or a bit over $500 per month. This is, of course, all hypothetical. I’m imagining that our favorite fragile fliptard will fill us in on his earnings at some point in the near future. He won’t be able to resist…

Add that $500 to the $200 he might possibly be getting for the text ads and you’ve got $700.

(Keep in mind, though, he’s probably not getting the full $100 per link. Lots of downtime lately and the more comments that are placed, the less likely it is that a search engine will read far enough to get to the links. That’s the primary value of the paid links, really, is for search engine placement, not necessarily for anyone here to click on. If he were smart, he’d move the code for the links to the top of his document and position it with CSS. If…)

Now, what does he do for that $700? Not much. He trolls and haterbaits™ a few times a week at best. How many hours does he spend? Honestly, more than he probably should, or has to, even. It’s very damn near passive. (And my personal philosophy is that there is no such thing as passive income. It’s a non-existent dream that Robert Kiyosucky et al dreamed up to help sell their own imaginations of what wealth is and should be. Something must always be done to receive any sort of income from any source.)

So, there you have it. He can probably make $500, maybe $1,000 per month on the kind of traffic he’s had today. That’s not too bad. It’s not a living. He still needs to get a job. But, a normal person would very easily be able to hold down a 9-5 making $50k or more plus run the blog in his spare time (30 minutes a night, three or four times a week should cover it, once it’s set up) to pull in an extra $12k or so per year. (Which, btw, does get reported to the IRS on a 1099 so that they can tax the hell out of it, self employment and all.)

So, IF motard was a normal, rational, intelligent and honest carbon based life form, he would currently be working his tail off at a 9-5 pulling a meager $50k to screw up other people’s websites, running his blog either in the morning (remember the early rizer™?) before work or in the evening when he gets home and then take on a couple of web dev contracts making maybe $30-50 an hour for that. (Considering his appalling technical abilities of late and Duane’s recent exposure of Casey’s failure to even return a simple phone call in his own best interest, I’d honestly have to be intoxicated to offer him even that for his “work”.) He could pull $80k or more easily if he were willing to put in some long nights, a bit of elbow grease and a tiny drop of brainpower.

But, he’s not driven, motivated, rational, intelligent, hardworking, honest or any of those other traits that even a fraction of a teaspoon of would help turn his situation around for the better. So, I suppose this is all just conjecture. He’ll never listen to anyone but his gurus.

But it’s fun.

Cough up another $4,000, and you are on a path to becoming if not an owner of this goldmine, but at least a chance to get on the board of directors.

Did you read the article, by the way? Did the phrase “irritainment” appear in there? Some people watch TV, some read books and some surf the ‘net looking for an interesting story. This story is interesting and entertaining. And you know, if Casey turned around and did everything exactly right for the next 12 months and blogged about it here, I’d come here to read about it and I’d personally feel good about seeing someone slowly unscrew their way-beyond-screwed life.

For the newcomers, here’s an IAFF drama summary.

Thanks to Casey’s brilliant decision to go with his $80/mo GoDaddy Econo-Servar instead of the $180/mo server that Heekee (Zewg) is paying for, IAFF was down for most of the weekend and then died just about the time the C|Net story hit. Casey missed out on most of Monday’s traffic and some today. This site is currently hogging 65% of the shared server’s resources and will probably be shut down by tomorrow morning. If it goes down, he misses out on the traffic spike from MSN tonight.

Casey also recently managed to really piss-off his ex-partner from December-January, Duane Legate, by leading him on about purchasing the website. In December, Duane was paying Casey $1500/mo for advertising on IAFF as long as Casey worked on getting his act together. That deal fell apart when Casey refused to get a job or show any progress. Casey recently contacted him about buying the site, let Duane do a bunch of legwork to line things up, played him and Nigel against each other, and then blew Duane off. Duane showed up at Exurban Nation and started telling details of his dealings with Casey. He will be telling those details sequentially starting tomorrow. It will probably be pretty entertaining.

DUI Cote is a buddy of Nigel Swaby (another of Casey’s ex-partners) who has a problem with Exurban Nation and has an attack blog dedicated to trashing Robert Cote, the site’s author. Recently he has resorted to posting sexual remarks about Rob’s 16 year old daughter. Interestingly, now he’s also apparently trolling as a woman trying to get people to hit on him.

This is just today’s drama. I keep waiting for this trainwreck to run out of steam, but it keeps on chugging. And for those who think the whole thing is fake, the real estate losses and fraud are real. Details about his personal matters may or may not be trolling (see the C|Net article.)

This has become a soap on a blog. At this point I just shake my head and wonder what is next. Like I have stated in the past you have a lot of talent, but inability to know how to use it.
I talked to a woman yesterday who had a real hard luck story. She is a 65 year old woman who has a son (her only child) who she lent her life savings to him so he could start a business. She was promised to be paid back in a timely fashion once his business got off the ground. Instead he stiffed her and even had the cops throw her out of his business she helped him pay for. She is facing foreclosure on her only house she has lived in for two years. She has a buyer that she is working on a short sale so she can prevent foreclosure. The funny thing about that is when the usual first response people did not want to help her or work with her, she spent many hours finding the name and address of both the CEO and Chairman of the bank. She wrote them both letters about her situation and presto like magic she got a fast response and almost instant approval. She now has a top executive working on getting her paperwork done so she can close. Not only that but she now has to start over and even though she is self-employed she is ready and willing and looking for jobs to be able to supplement her SS check and her part-time self employed work. She is willing to do what it takes to make it. The sad part is she is 65 and has to start her life all over again now. She has a website of her home put up with the help of her Realtor
I have seen a lot of opportunities here that you have squandered. I do not understand why you are letting your life pass you by on hopes of pipe dreams that are not realistic. Real money takes real work to accomplish that high level you are looking for. I do not believe it can be accomplished doing the 9 to 5, but I do believe you do what is necessary to survive until your break comes.

I do not actually see you as a hater but just frustrated by the lack of understanding for reality our young apprentice has. His last post talks about things he may try and do. I too am frustrated because they are all in front of him to do and yet I believe he refuses to do any of them because it would require a little hard work. I want to see him at least try and make an effort somewhere to get himself in a better situation for all that is involved (family, wife). I can only hope he does someday and stop these ridicules pipe dreams. He has opportunities in front of him that others only wish for and yet I can only see him squandering it all.

@87. lostsite

I agree with your assessment. As has been said by others before, I don’t know that there are that many people here that really, really hate him. There are some, but I think that most are frustrated, as you say.

I suppose my frustration comes from the fact that I work my tail off for a good 80-90 hours per week on several different businesses/projects that are all returning some sort of profit and will grow steadily, but I realize it takes a lot of time and effort and hard work and sleepless nights to build something great that will pay off for the long haul.

At the very same time, this little twerp (who, by the way, is older than me by a good few months), sits back, reads and spews a bunch of BS motivational crap and thinks that there’s a short and easy path to becoming stoopid-rich. It’s really an insult to those of us who consider ourselves true entrepreneurs who have education and experience and the drive, motivation, ambition, etc. to become “financially independent”. (Which, by the way, is another concept I don’t believe in: no man is an island. Everyone’s finances depend on other people, no matter how rich or poor you may be. They are your responsibility, but they are very much affected by others…)

So, I think you nailed it on the head. I am frustrated. But, what can I do? Rant about it, vent a little, have some fun with it and then put my head back down and go back to making bucketloads of money that CS will only ever dream about.

I think you should load this thingy up with more ads! Popups! video ads, sounds. Do paid blog postings.
Casey — This IS your job. **F** the haters. Even let them post more, it can stir up more traffic. Just keep the worst of the worse out (profanity, racisim, etc) With your traffic, I think you can get a high clickthru if you load up with ads. Make this a link farm! You’re giving way too much for free, and you wasted months. If you really love this girl, at least auction the domain to the highest bidder. I think you can get at least 50k-100k. Also, consider filing BK. Your credit cant get much worse, and your in deep enough as it is. I dont think it can hurt. If you get busted, when you get bailed out, flee to russia. They won’t look for you there.

Hater Antagonist,
Pardon me if I’m not particularly impressed with your noble one-man crusade to stop the evil haterz by impersonating women in blog comments. (I’m assuming you’re also DUI Cote, which therefore also makes you Casey, Nigel, Brian S. Nick, and Nigel’s a**-kicking forensic accountant.)

I’ve taken risks and lost money on investments before. The lesson I learned is that I didn’t know as much as I thought I did and didn’t do my homework. It’s people like yourself who sit around going “Well at least I had the courage to try” (wait, I mean “was bold enough to pursue my dreams”) who make the same mistakes next time around. The real investors either got out of RE by early ‘05 or at least got rid of their riskiest properties. The gamblers and the noobz are now being washed out of the market, some more spectacularly than others.

The haterz are here because Casey created them through his lack of action. Casey could turn a saint into a haterz with the stuff he pulls on a daily basis. He can get rid of the majority of the haterz simply by getting a job. And C|Net showed that he’s made his peace with us.

I’m just here for the entertainment. And you, as the local pontificating wacko, are part of that whether you like it or not.

The server really is slow as hell, but that might be because your traffic is way up. It’s already matched last Tuesday’s traffic and we’re only 4.5 hours into the day. You made it onto MSN. (Repeat of the C|Net article.) The influx of new visitors is going to be huge, but if you don’t do something spectacularly stupid or annoying in the next couple of days, they’re going to drift off.

Ok.. it happened DAWG as i told you it would..

One of the reasons why i have been on the sidelines so long was the links Casey was providing to 2 of my websites... say what you want about him, but google loves his out bound links.. they lifted us up nicely in some areas for natural search..

OK.. I go ballistic yesterday and begin to out some of Caseys ways.. YEP first thing he did this am was pull down my links...

but it didnt matter becasue the links were already devalued... lemme explain...

all search engines.. ESPECIALLY google penalize link buying to build back links and page rankings.. they are VERY dilligent in spotting this...

SO>>> the other day when Snowflake posted the links for sale for 100... 2 days later after his site was crawled, my lift from IAFF was gone...

I didnt matter if he pulled them, they are already devalued in googles eyes because google knows he is selling, their bots just cant tell which ones... even if he pulls down the links for sale for 100 dollars text.. google will still know and penalize...

SO>>>> as a link "buyer" what are you getting??

Search engine boost? NOPE
Back Links? Yes, not usable though
Potential flag of the site BUYING links..? YEP YEP YEP YEP

ok from a traffic standpoint.. I am here to tell you after Casey annoucned our sponsorship... after he did a writeup for REI.TV... after many months of having my links on his side bar...

I have had 4 people needing to sell their house... thats in how many months??? 6 ish??

That site DOESNOT have actionable traffic...

Watch for the link turnover to happen... his passive income will fizzle...

On to Plan V, or is it Plan W??

Rob Dawg said...

What delete do you want?

flailing forward said...

I always wondered if anybody was seriously clicking on his ads and links. Plan W I think is generate money from PPC ads, and Plan X is PPM is nobody clicks on the PPC ads. Then Plan Y is Monkeydance II, and of course Plan Z is mom&dad.

Good points. You are saying what a lot of the critics (including myself in the past) have been arguing with Nigel for the last few months. You aren't getting any real business because Casey's site is a mixed-majority of critics and trainwreck watchers.

I am so glad you've decided to post your insight of this drama here. What you just stated kills every argument Nigel has about who visits IAFF. This kind of info also backs up what a fake that guy is. I've personally had enough with that guy and his heavy handed insults.

I've challenged him, but I'm not expecting a coherent answer.

To be fair to Nigel, I can understand why he - and only he - might get the impression that EN is just a seething, festering cauldron of bile, but it really isn't.

Aside from Tim MBA's spectacular meltdown (which was entirely self-inflicted) I really can't think of any significant flamage aimed at anyone other than Casey, Nigel or the occasional anonymous troll.

What a sad little tosser Nigel really is. Just look at what he's said:

The title is " Duane LeGate Full of Hate?"
Later Nigel says "I don't wish Duane any ill will".
So why suggest he's full of hate?

Nigel: "If you recall, Duane is the one who originally contacted me. Once he "solved" his problem, his interest in me vanished. I called him back a few times as he requested, but the messages went unanswered."
I wonder why. Maybe you couldn't bring anything more to the table. Or maybe you were just looking for web traffic. Where would you get $10k for IAFF and what did you propose doing with it to bring in revenue?

Nigel "He's admitted he's unfamiliar with the goings on of the Internet"
Funny, his explanation of the situation with ad revenue, back links and Google was quite informative.

I think I should start a sweep on the number of deleted comments that thread will get. I'll start with 10.

I'll also see how many people think it should have been titled "Nigel Swaby - Full of Jealousy?"

Nigels says "they eat their own", but of course doesn't back up that assertion with facts.

Nigel would do well to remember that most haterz started out by offering real-world advice (from their own experiences) to Casey over and over again in the spirit of help. Casey, of course, ignored that advice, then was snarky to those who got frustrated after weeks & months of trying to help him. We're now gathered here to talk among ourselves and watch the show unfold just as we told him it would if he didn't take productive action.

Miguel's right. Tim MBA is the only one who melted down. And if I recall correctly, some people were still sympathetic to him. Even the offended seemed to realize something must have been seriously wrong at that point.

Let's see...there were multiple, anonymous suggestions that Our Hero "off himself" & the EN community rallied against that sort of behaviour.

Steph's awesome rack can't really be blamed for Lucky's death.

Nigel, lets not bend here...

"Here's the true revelation though folks. Duane was paying Casey for several months after the whole NLL deal went down. They simply said the deal was dead, but Casey kept the links up and Duane kept paying. Haterz interference is what caused Duane to turn on "silent running" mode so I am quite shocked Duane would now resurface spill his guts(z?) to the EN world."

You will see everything... you are partially correct.. but mostly incorrect... he did get paid by me after I broke the sponsorship, there was a reason.. and its not what you think... also the reason you had stated in the past about why I quit because of the Haterz is inaccurate.. there was a tency bit of truth.. again it will come out..

As far as having a problem solved... you and I were in contact as I recall twice... once when IAFF was down... i only remembered a few names your being one to let everyone know why... and the 2nd was to compare notes on a person that I thoguht had crossed the line. We chatted, I didnt want to continue with any relationship... you didnt solve any problem for me...

The reason I said "watch Nigel" is simply this... I think your a traffic whore. Why does this site exist if not to suck traffic off the back of Serin? You add no compelling value. In my mind you self grandize (spelling?)

I think it is fanfuckintastic all of the shit coming out about casey in the last couple of days.

It couldnt have happened to a nicer guy. All of the traffic he misses because he is inept at programming..(mad skillz there casey).

And with Duane coming out and outing this little turd and zewg too.

Now onto our favorite blogger with award Mr. Nigel "drop to his knees to suck snowflakes man juice directly from the tap" poo.

His preemptive entry to duane is just fucking pathetic. Nigel your a disgusting human being that should be dragged out behind the woodshed and beaten.

That Nigel would even group himself in with the haterz(TM) is just further proof that he will blow (litteraly) whichever way the wind decides to go.

Nigel you still have caseys back and that you would try and out Duane for disclosing his dealings with snowflake after you did exactly the same thing is hypocritical.

Nigel your not only follicaly challenged, but your also a failed- blogger, Mortgage broker, human being, and casey nut extractor.

You got bitchslapped by casey and decided to get all butthurt and try and buy his blog, then go and start a blog about his blog after you critisize everyone else for blogging about his blog.

I would love to see someone that lives near you to punch you in your smug queer face.

SO stop your bullshit with DHC...get your own media attention and build your own way to infamy without trying to buy casey's site to sell your olympic pins.

Now I must go mow my lawn and wash my truck..problably change the oil in it too....

Well, Brian S Nick is a very good case in point - he popped up here, made various pompous comments, and got his ass handed to him on a plate. So he retired to his own blog, censored all incoming comments, and gave up blogging altogether a couple of weeks later.

But he was never remotely one of our own, so he doesn't count.

This is all around the most conflict-free, and really quite supportive community of 'Haterz'; and the only time we get into verbal jousts with anyone is when someone is trolling under the name of regulars or as anonymous visitors who come here solely to flame threads.

Tim from MB went around and called some of us gals 'cunt' and told people to die, and such; but he had the common decency to recuse himself from further participation, seeing his problem, and has remained pretty much quiet since... which is more than I can say for Nigel.

I am deeply amused by the "Duane LeGate Full of Hate?" title. I nearly choked on my water, laughing. What a total dork.

I really like his puffed-up exaggerations on DHC; he takes something that is fairly benign and blows it up into some crazy accusation. It reminds me of those super-defensive tweekers you run into at stores yelling at employees because they've been asked not to eat from the bulk containers; they're all confrontational and defensive; and will blow anything you say out of proportion.

Why does this site exist if not to suck traffic off the back of Serin?

First of all, I talked to Casey about this site before starting it. The purpose of this site was simply to move Serin talk away from my main site, much like you didn't do your "Casey outing" on your own site. The haterz are bad news.

To Flailing Forward and others with love,

When I tell Nigel to go off himself I say it with Love.

(Disclaimer for the EN community)..When I speak I speak for myself and myself alone unless otherwise noted)

Everyone on here that even remotely feels they know me --well they know that I shoot from the hip (allot like duane--which is why I loved reading his replies on IAFF when he was bitchslapping people that bitchslapped him).

Whether it is for Nigel to choke on his AX body spray (woman speak) or telling him to simply go off himself (guy speak--not coded) is all the same result.

So in retrospect I retract my earlier comment to Nigel to go off himself and add in it's place the following:

Go OD on fred flinstone vitamins and
Please do not go mistep and slip out in front of a bus--the world would be at a great loss with your death. that I have been browbeaten into woman speak..I am going to take my effeminate self out to get a new murse and a wine spritzer and possibly a scone.

PSS..for the time being I have dropped my new name (intervivos) and retreated back to CHJTS because another chapter of I think a few more just opened in this saga.

@Akubi 12:15...there's a copy-and-paste to CI, where someone posted some galina photos.

I can't find it because of the scroll wheel-busting troll insert. (that was the post I was talking about, Rob Dawg.)

If she intended to return them, why not go to Nordstrom rather than some discount shoe store?

Why? He's not interested in promoting the site or the amount of traffic. Duh!

Somewhat OT, but my boss is going to help herd the humpback whales stuck in Port of Sacramento back to sea. Wish I could go.

For a condensed version of Casey Serin's real estate transactions see this article from when his site was first launched.

I'm back. Wardrobe crisis solved. ::repeating to self, one pair of jeans that don't close does not make one fat. one pair of ...:

NIGEL - you sad, pathetic, uninspiring excuse for a blogger.
Whenever I think your insipidness can sink no lower, you find a newer chamber.

I am slowly reassessing you. Perhaps instead of being a Serin Syncophant (wiki it) you are really a closeted and hetero masochist.
I can't think why ANYONE would put themselves in a position of such abuse. A few times you tried to mimic the EN crowd (yes. you did.) and the interest in you was minimal. So you swung the other direction and made jackass postings & tried to take on the big boys. THAT got you a modicum of interest, battered and THAT is what brought you back for more.

I am now voting masochist. And also an unintelligent masochist who really can't fathom he has been outclassed on every level by almost every poster on this blog. Every troll of yours has failed. Every statement of yours has been refuted. Every EN member you Outed remained prolific. Unfortunately you have gone from bemusing to just - sad.

THanks for posting on my behalf.. but lets keep butterfly here...

He had to come HERE to cut and paste the stuff for the article...

He came here.. did a cut and paste.. ran back to his blog... tried to turn the story to him...

If he wants to debate... I will... and I will win.. however.. I will do it here...

Butterfly... the reason I posted here and not on my site was to prove the VERY point that I am not trying to suck traffic... thats why I have never posted again about Casey on mine.. its that simple...

Why do you have to turn anything and everything back to you??

I agree with DAWG... you have a "HEY LOOK AT ME" kinda syndrome going.

Please the rest of the evil haters ( i mean haterZ ) ... dont post on butterflys site... make him post here...

Check out the links to the EN comments on the DHC post. Major, major slip-up by Nigel. His sloppy cut-and-paste job reveals that he doesn't visit EN directly; he's using ProxyIndex to hide his IP address.

I wonder why that might be?

I have two minutes left on my lunch hour. I was really hoping to read more about Duane and Casey's failed relationship.....

Please post soon.

Can somebody please post a link to Tim from MBA's blow-up that everybody keeps talking about? I'd love to read it, but I don't even know where to look (I'm new to EN).

ooo ooo ooh

There's a teaser countdown meter at the top right of the latest IAFF that sez there's going to be a begathon Friday 5/18 @ 6PM Pacific Time!

Someone else has dubbed this "MonkeyDance II", and on behalf of the Haterz community I have trademarked that phrase. MonkeyDance II™ s--t be ON!

Deep down inside you all know that some of us are weak and won't be able to resist. Let's be sure we get our money's worth, we can start discussing some possibilities. Learn a lesson from Snowflake, don't overpay, and never pay cash when you can pay on credit and DEFAULT. Casey: what's good for the goose is good for the gander.

I myself am interested in some revealing shots of Durtee Penni wearing nothing except a gold Century 21 jacket and Payless shoes with stickers on the soles, bouncing on a trampoline. I will pay 1 dollar for this at 50% simple interest due in six months.

I am liking you more & more. Makes me a little sad I don't have a failing house I can toss your way. :(

Unlike fliptard & anyone whoever got a Swab Mortgage & is looking to re-fi, my RE is doing well. (Ya hear that boys? It CAN be done with half a brain & a modicum of business instinct.

My only problem is the devalued dollarr has postponed my plans of a studio in Ile de France. :(

Let's not. No one is proud of any of it. I has to wade in a do what I do worst; intervene. Everyone was sorry it happened and guilty parites made ammends. This is a move on moment but Dan, welcome anyway there's more than enough in the coming days to keep you glued to the refresh button.

He needs to realize 'it's over JOHNNY'.

no money. sure you can visit his podcast or whatever its going to be just don't give him money. call in. don't give money. F*CK him.

I completely agree with this. And it says a lot for how highly Tim was regarded that loads of people - very much including myself - bent over backwards to claim that the posts were by an impersonator until Tim himself confessed all.

All you really need to know is that he said a few things that really shouldn't have been said, he apologized profusely to the people in question, and I don't believe he's posted since.

Commented at DHC; I wonder how long this one will stand:

BTW, Nigel, you've slipped up on your cut-and-paste scoop here: the links to the EN comments are very revealing.

You use ProxyIndex to visit EN, hmm?

Websites cannot identify or track you! [...] ProxyIndex hides your IP address.

Very interesting. I wonder why you do that. I wonder what else you use it for.

(Some sterling work by flailing forward on that post also. For someone who views the "haterz" as "obsessive", Nigel sure does spend a lot of time pumping the Casey crank.)

I forgot to bust you on this...

Within your cut and paste breaking story you commented...

Salt Lake Mortgage Guy said...
"We chatted, I didnt want to continue with any relationship" my words...

Butterflys response"

"Then why did you ask me to call you to do an interview?"

This is how he views things... i musta sought him out, with him being an award winning blogger and all... and begged him to do a story on us...

What really happened??

from his SLC blog...

"Update - 2:37 p.m. (MST)

Duane LeGate called me. We had a nice chat. He sounds like a real Southern gentleman. We're going to talk some more next week and I'll may have a profile about his business and how it works."

Ok remember now the only reason i called him was to let him know about casey and why he was down..

so now he may have a profile of my business.... then he responds again today regarding this same subject...

from his cut and paste breaking story -

"I called him back a few times as he requested, but the messages went unanswered. "

So your version of the story is this...

I called you to ask you to interview me on your blog, then I wouldnt call you back??

What does that tell you Butterfly??

You know, I work hard for my income; I'd rather not give a dirty penny of it to someone who refuses to actually earn money by any effort; and instead idles by feeling entitled to it.

Excuse my Fran├žais; but Fuck Casey and his begathon.

I'd rather save it and treat myself to a pedicure.

Miguel said...

Given Casey's current connectivity problems, isn't it a little unwise to have a countdown?

Even if IAFF is working reliably up to then, there'll be a sudden surge when the begathon starts...

...or maybe doesn't.

Actually it's his side job, but maybe he'll provide pictures.

Rob Dawg/lawnmower man,
I was also thinking along those lines when I first read about the direction they were headed;).

How did I know that was coming?

Aspeth said...

Cannot echo the "DON'T FEED THE ANIMALS" sentiment of paying Casey Serin to continue to steal, lie, and commit fraud.

Once again, he's counting on the W-2 loosers having a tough week at work and coming home to relax and imbibe, making them easy marks for his scamarific ways.

I don't understand the sentiment of 'you know you can't resist...' I actually have precisely the opposite reaction. I may have just blown hoards of cash in a rum-fueled frenzy overseas, but I'd sooner gouge out an eye than pay Snowflake to wake up and breathe for one more day.

Dolph said...

"Tim from MB went around and called some of us gals 'cunt' and told people to die, and such; but he had the common decency to recuse himself from further participation, seeing his problem, and has remained pretty much quiet since... which is more than I can say for Nigel."

I remember that. I posted some rebukes to Tim that evening and he harassed me to no end for doing so.

Man, that was trippy.

Dolph said...

Duane, I'd ask Nigel to take down your company's logo. If he has any honor (doubt it) then he will do it.

I know the whales you speak of, but it's the Sacramento River, not Port of Sacramento. If it were the Port of Sacramento, news footage would pan the area and you'd see Yulia's house. ;)

Are you sure those are tags?
Its not uncommon for certain customers to tape the soles of new shoes & return them after being worn.

Oh my goodness, that is an uber-cheap thing to do!

I'd much prefer to think she just put on some two sided tape 'cause she needed the extra traction for when she changes direction suddenly, like wheeling around with her Clipboard™ to harangue a contractor-cum-homeless dude...
