GreatGlavinsGhost: Gah! It's near the end of the last official GJTB thread.


I managed to find the link, I was searching the Farkives for GJTB, when it was actually spelled out in the headline. As it stands I control+f'd RichieLaw and gave up in disgust because he was responding to so many people and had a bunch of parallel debates open. I'll just go with if anyone cares they can search it. I tried control finding for holiday, contact, thank you, but failed to spot the post. If someone else can up with a better term or wants to wade through all 97 RichieLaw results, go for it.

doubled99: I bet it will be just as funny as the whole "buy him a bird" thing.


That wasn't intended to be funny, at least not the cause. If mocking an existing meme is what it took to get a few bucks to worthy charities, than that's what we'll continue to do.

I don't think there has been proof shown that money was actually donated to charities, though. I sure hope it was, but there hasn't been an update

It was never "an existing meme". It still isn't.

Of course no proof showed up.  What the hell did you think was going to happen?  Farkers just got played for $14,000+ and there ain't a goddamn thing anyone can do about it.  It is about time this shiat happened, too.  This place has gotten too pansified, with people throwing BAWWW money every time a thread pops up with a reasonably good-sounding cause or a fun-sounding idea.  Some days it feels like the Jerry Lewis Labor Day Telethon in here rather than a fun website.  Screw that...if you want to donate money to charity do that.  If you want to give money to a fallen Farker or their family, do it through the channels listed in their obituary.  Don't do it here though.  Fark itself is not an appropriate place for panhandling or other financial deals like that.  Honestly, Drew could get into trouble in certain circumstances if things went bad on one of these little efforts, even if it is done with the best intentions.  At the very least this shiatstorm makes Fark look really bad.  Still, I have heard that it is morally wrong to allow a sucker to keep his money, and Fark has apparently got no shortage of them.  So maybe this money-grabbing prick actually did something right for the world just by scamming the dopes.

Yeah, plus it isn't "what it took to get a few bucks to worthy charities" either, is it?  The money never got there.

I am glad that there is at least a little bit of a bright spot in all of this.  Some people in the original thread sent money to the charities directly, most notably <B>Balchinian</b>, who I believe sent a couple thou to each directly.  I'm not going to go looking through the threads to find the exact amount, but it was something like that.  So at least they got something from this whole stupid event.

I need to look into this. Seriously. The Give Joe the Bird bit was dead to me the minute it was over. It seemed like a good thing, but perhaps I was duped. Have not read the outrage threads or any other protests. If it turns out I was duped, its my own fault for believing in something. If ti turns out I was duped, I guess that makes me an AM radio listener.

Here's something you might find interesting. There's a user on reddit called richielaw who posted this thread today:

Investment options for money earmarked for future tax payment.
I will shortly have some funds (about 100k) from a one-shot source of income. I will have to pay Uncle Sam his due. However, this tax money won't be due till 2014.
Are there any incredibly safe investments that anyone can recommend for 20-30k over the next year? I already have a savings account with .95% interest.
Thanks so much for any help you may be able to provide!

You're on Fark. Shouldn't you be busy feeding an orphan or something? For shame.


Really. I mean, I'll never get the several seconds of my life that I spent signing the petition or responding to this thread back.

There's no way for people to get their money back from kickstarter, explaining fraud was committed? or to contact the bank?

I am willing to give him the benefit of the doubt and just assume he's been busy due to the holidays, but it is a bit suspicious that the guy gets ~$15k of donations then just doesn't post again. I mean, if a guy gets that much to give to charity, he should post a few updates about how it is going

Most of us have been ripped off at some point in our lives.

If you fall victim, hopefully you'll be able to say that it didn't make you go broke (or anything close), that the worst part of it was being lied to, learn your lesson, and go on with life.

Considering that reality TV has nothing to do with actual reality, doing such a show about the White House seems strangely appropriate.

Here it is. $3250 to Wounded Warriors and $3250 to Doctors Without Borders. Assuming he actually did it of course.
 
2013-01-06 12:26:19 PM  
I used to work with him, and can tell you that if he said he did it, then he did it.  That sort of thing is very much in his character, and I know he does give that kind of money to charities all the time, so I'd call that a safe assumption.

I'd assume that if you asked him he would say that there was no joke.

If you read the original thread I linked to above, you will see that Balchinian thought that GJTB was stupid, and the wrong reason to be donating in the first place. At the time, the donations were at $6500, so he decided to match the effort but to simply write checks to two of the charities himself. So there was no "joke" per se involved with his donation.

Not sure I agree with his rationale, but he apparently did end up dropping $10,000 (GAHHH!) to charities which have not seen $.01 from GJTB so maybe there was something to what he said after all.

Balchinian: I think you are a big, fat, jerk most of the time, but this was pretty freaking classy. On behalf of the Farkers whose money got taken, I thank you.

2013-01-07 03:02:57 PM  

ha-ha-guy: ExperianScaresCthulhu: Wait, are you for real? :( That's bogus, man.

Also, was it tied to the soup kitchen fundraiser (which did produce a 'thanks, guys' pat on the back thread) or not?

There were common organizers in both fundraisers. However I don't think they were directly joined. In the last thread the highlights where.

1. One farker who donated 1k pulled his donation out because RichieLaw (the guys whose bank account the kickstarter was ending up in) wasn't being responsive.


No, he pulled out because of doubts raised by other Farkers. He had my email address and we had previously corresponded if he needed additional information.

2. Richie, again the guy whose bank account was set to get the money from KS, came in and posted something about forgetting about the fundraiser and being unsure about the tax liability.

I diaried the wrong ending of the fundraiser and did not get to do a last minute push for more donations. It was not forgotten. I had this thing called life and family to deal with. In addition, any attempt to do ANYTHING with this fundraiser was met with an incredible amount of vitriol and speciousness on Fark. Myself, and the other people who organized this thing, honestly got tired of all the hate. In retrospect, any attempt to do anything more with this project on this site would have been met with derision and idiocy. There was no point to continue at the risk of my mental health.

3. Various arguing by Fark Lawyers/Accountants over the tax issues.
4. Complaints about the transparency of the fundraiser.
5. Eventual full on trolling by parties on both sides, complete with threats to leave for reddit by one organizer and other crap in that vein.

So yeah, it was a clusterfark compared to the SVDP one.


Can't disagree with the above.

If anyone would have read any of my farking comments they would have known that the goal to get rewards out is Feb. 1. If you would have donated and left your email on the indiegogo site you would have received an email from me asking for shirt sizes and confirmation of addresses.

I stopped posting because of shiat like this thread. I've been in touch with unfreakable and others regarding this. EVERY SINGLE TIME I would post anything I was met with allegations of fraud and embezzlement when I have done nothing but do what I said I was going to do. Why am I going to continue to update people who want to do nothing but deride me and the entire project? I'll send out updates to people who's emails I have and the indiegogo site. I will not be submitting anything further to Fark.
 
2013-01-07 03:19:17 PM  
If anyone wants to discuss my activities on this you can email me at joebidenstransam at the gmail.com. If you donated and want proof of the funds still being available I'd be more than happy to give it to you, they are sitting in an interest bearing account waiting for the reward purchase and then dispersal.

In all fairness, RichieLaw, because this is the forum in which you began asking for money, I think you owe it to us, despite our vitriol, to explain this here, publically, in front of the people whose money you are holding:

http://www.reddit.com/r/investing/comments/15xsod/

Was your intention to scam off with the money until you were told that it may put Fark at legal risk and that they would point their finger at you in a NY second if shiat went down?

Please note that I am asking, not implying one way or another.
 
2013-01-07 11:04:50 PM  
Also, once the payments are made and confirmation is available, I also think it is proper to post verification of that here on Fark. You don't have to comment, or read comments, just post it so that people can see that it actually happened.

No, I did not ask for anyone to donate money. I made the error of volunteering to run the indiegogo site. There is a huge discussion. And no, I do not owe people secondary or tertiary explanations for my actions regarding this campaign. I have said over and over again if you have any questions you can email me. Instead I get aspersions cast my way.

Did you donate to the campaign? Because if you did and you qualified for a reward you would have received an email fro me. If you didn't donate to the campaign then I'm wondering what your angle is here?

Was your intention to scam off with the money until you were told that it may put Fark at legal risk and that they would point their finger at you in a NY second if shiat went down?

Please note that I am asking, not implying one way or another.


So you accuse me of scamming people and then say, "I am asking, not implying...." God, you are exactly the reason why I've stopped posting updates on this site.

And apparently, I am also a mother farking investment genius as I turned about 13k into a 100k.

That post has nothing to do with GJTB and I meant to delete it days ago. It has to do with my occupation and personal life. I will not be disclosing that information to you on the basis of your unfounded accusations. There is no further explanation.

Cottage Cheesecake: Also, once the payments are made and confirmation is available, I also think it is proper to post verification of that here on Fark. You don't have to comment, or read comments, just post it so that people can see that it actually happened.

No. I will not be posting any more of this on Fark. I've already reached an agreement with unfreakable to post the copies of checks and things sent once it is completed.

Actually, fark it. I'm tired of dealing with this shiat. If anyone who is a contributor wants further clarification or to see a copy of my effing bank account with the funds you can shoot me an email.

Everyone else can wait until the rewards are sent out and checks mailed to see proof posted on here. I'm done. I've spent way too much of my day thinking about this and I just do not have the time or wherewithal do get into this all over again.

Good day.

Copies of checks is nice, but I think we'd rather see receipts from the charities, as that seems to be the precedent set above. (Just because I wrote a check doesn't mean I sent it, after all.) I do feel bad about how you have been treated, but seeing as this is Fark it shouldn't have really come as much of a surprise to you.
