I come across some very strange people from time to time but this Russell Rockefeller guy is up there.
I originally banned this guy from posting in the deadbeat Facebook group. The group (which is integrated on this blog) was created to help people get paid and also warn people from affiliate networks and advertisers who did not pay. The admin’s of the group felt Russell never contributed anything useful and was just trolling so he was banned.
He informed us that he is huge on Facebook and that it was a big mistake to ban him. – Gotcha…
But I guess since that (threat?) didn’t work he decided to go on the offense and threaten legal action. I sent him our attorney’s contact information. Still to this day have never heard anything from his legal council… It’s really strange because this guy is HUGE on the internet and his legal threats were very scary.
Then one day I saw this posted to his thousand friends on his Facebook Wall:
I appreciate the hate and the link actually. Its nice having a HUGE guy on the internet like this send his adoring fans your way.
I gotta be honest, I am humbled. Who knew that being a reject who’s only contribution has been “showing off my fat ass in t-shirts” would work out so well. Its amazing how tens of thousands of people come here everyday that are into to that.
That is probably a VERY under monetized niche!
Surprisingly though Russel quickly deleted that and sent me a message saying he had cooled off… but then threatening more legal action… eek!
Sidenote: Why do people always mistake this blog as a “news” website. Its a blog… its my blog… and its my opinions. Also page 10 of the deadbeats section isnt exactly “front page” but hey if your listing it on your resume then I guess you can say “as seen on ShoeMoney.com”
Now I gotta tell you this is impressive. Russell is obviously no joke and nobody should question his credibility. He has discovered a way to build a “strong” case against me for slander – Because I posted, in writing, that he was not allowed to post in the deadbeat area anymore.
Now again I don’t possess the legal mind or experience that Russell has but I always thought that Slander was spoken and Libel was written.
But a reject like me, who’s only contribution to the world is being a fat t-shirt model, shouldn’t question the credibility or knowledge of Russell Rockefeller. Its clear with his thousand Facebook friends that this guy is a force in the affiliate industry.
Now while this really kept me up at night I went back to what I do for a living… eating and sorting through t-shirts to model.
Then all of a sudden started getting messages from my “mass email deployment” friends. Evidently Russell is very well known in the affiliate world… but as I have come to find out, it’s not for the reasons he thinks. People warned me about how he can become infatuated with others.
Just last week Russell, who can’t seem to let go, took time away from his empire to send me another Facebook message:
That is really awesome. I can sleep at night knowing that Russell has finally moved on…
But just hours ago I get a notice on Facebook that he has mentioned me in a comment:
All kidding aside, its one thing to talk smack but its another when someone becomes so infatuated with you that a day does not go by when you have not heard something that the person is doing or plotting with you.
Hopefully Russell is not having visions of raping my naked corpse.
