There is not enough popcorn in the WORLD for watching this dude go down in flames.

I didn't know they had drive-thru law schools.

Charles Carreon

Truly a dick among peckers.
 
2012-06-18 07:15:36 AM
It's interesting to watch a man with his dick in a hornet's nest try to solve the problem by tossing his balls in as well.

Indeed. Who needs reality TV when you have this kind of stuff to entertain us?

Anyone got a pool started on when this guy gets disbarred for misconduct?

So here's a nice twist to the whole Oatmeal saga: the FunnyJunk lawyer who has been aggrieved by the Internet is now suing the National Cancer Society and the National Wildlife Federation.

Who the hell is the National Cancer Society?

He's not just doubling down, he's tripling down.

I'm going to pull a Romero and predict this will not end well for him.

I can't wait to see his actual complaint that he filed in court. Hopefully it'll show up on PACER today so someone with access can get a copy to pass around. I soooo want to read it.

How quickly we forget Jack Thompson(disbarred). Yes, there are people who are this impossibly stupid.

So Carreon doubled down on his previous double down of derp? Are we at a double-double-double-double?

A troll. From the article two days ago:
Carreon then detailed a few of the incidents that he has had to deal with this week.

His website was hacked and the password taken (which he was able to recover before any damage could be done). Someone also created a twitter account posing as him, which Carreon claimed constituted trademark infringement (due to his name being trademarked).

While the complaint isn't yet available, this was in that article two days ago:
My first question for Mr. Carreon was about his attempt to shut down the The Oatmel's fundraiser. I didn't understand why he wouldn't instead just say that raising money for cancer and wildlife preservation was great, but it did not affect the damages that were owed to his client. The move seemed to cause more bad PR for himself and FunnyJunk rather than help his case.

Carreon replied that under California law, you must be properly registered to conduct a fundraiser, something he is certain that Mathew Inman (operator of The Oatmeal) and IndieGoGo (the crowdfunding site being used The Oatmeal) are not.

"You might think of it as the 'Pseudo Santa' law," he explained. "Anybody can get a Santa suit. Then around Christmas time, you can probably make pretty good money wearing one outside of Macy's, ringing a bell, and saying you'll give the money to the Salvation Army. But you can't do that."

Carreon went on to say that he had been in contact with the American Cancer Society and the National Wildlife Federation and confirmed that Indiegogo had not executed the proper fundraiser paperwork. He explained that this missing documentation gives a sponsoring organization the power to shut down a campaign that may bring a charity itself into disrepute or injure its goodwill...or might be "using a charity as a human shield for a slander campaign inciting people to cyber vandalism," Carreon added.


Now, my guess is that he's suing the ACS and NWF to force them to shut down the campaign, so it's not as if he's going after them for damages, just an injunction.

Well then, that explains it. He's an attention whore.

Sadly he's doing better than you, I mean your boobies are probably nicer (I've never seen his, I can't judge) but he has a train wreck that is entertaining.

No, some of us suspect an ulterior motive with the rampant flaunting of your feminine wiles, also.

To be fair, however, you'd probably not oppose being in a compromising sort of position for a charitable cause.

This one was a gem:
"The author did work on the sex.com case. However his work was a very, very small part of it. He stretched to create 320 pages. The very interested thing is that I read an analysis of the book in which it is described that Charles Carreon has sever parental issues. Particularly stemming from his mother being a prostitute. He found this out at a young age. It is believe he father an avid hunter forced her to participate in beastiality with bears while he watched. Charles Carreon was in grade school and still grieves for his mother "Trixie" who was ravingly sodomized by a bear because she was so fat and hairy the bear thought she was a fellow Grizzly. He had to choose between joining in the horrible act or becoming an internet lawyer... so begins the Sex.com Chronicles! "

LOL

He's still an idiot. You can't force a charity to turn down voluntary donations, no matter what the intention behind them is. The case should get tossed, and he should be forced to pay the charities' costs and attorney fees.

Here is a bit of advice to our lawyer friend from an old Scottish proverb

"when you find yourself in a hole the first thing to do is stop digging"
 
2012-06-18 09:40:54 AM
Carry on my douchebag son
There'll be no peace till you are done
Lay your 15 minutes to rest
Don't you sue no more

Once you sued for just the lulz and confusion
Just to keep up appearances and delusion
You were douching ever higher
But you douched too high

Though my eyes could see you weren't a real kind man
Though my mind could think I was going real mad man
I hear the voices when I'm dreaming
I can hear them say

{Refrain

Masquerading as a man with a reason
Suing all with no regard for the season
And if you claim to be a wise man, well
It surely means that you don't know

On a stormy sea of internet persecution
Tossing off at the thought of retribution
You set a course for winds of fortune
But I hear the voices say

{Refrain
No!

Carry on, you will always be laughed at
Carry on, nothing equals this ass hat
The center lights around your vanity
But surely tardom waits for you

Carry on my douchebag son
There'll be no peace till you are done
Lay your 15 minutes to rest
Don't you sue no more(don't you sue no more)

Haha, oh wow he's gone the pro se route, has he? So much for the leeway he could get in just representing his client's interests.

And what in the fark is he suing the charities for? What the fark did they do? What are they supposed to do, turn down a legitimate donation?
 
2012-06-18 09:41:09 AM
Oh, wait - what if lawyer Carreon has a personality disorder that makes him do these self-destructive acts? We should pity him, perhaps send him notes similar to the ones I sent my ex when she wants more money or attention.

Those notes are along the lines of EABOD and DIAF.

yours, in hopes of everyone getting along

If the law says that a charity can shut down a fundraiser, then yes, they can.

The case should get tossed, and he should be forced to pay the charities' costs and attorney fees.

On what grounds? Because you don't like him? While I agree, that's not really a valid legal reason that a judge can hang an order on.

I think you missed the part where he said "You can't force a charity to turn down voluntary donations" and replied instead to what wasn't said.
