Back to this thread I really hope it works out for you guys and I truly was just taking another angle on this as I thought it may be helpful to have 1 voice going against the grain. Erick's twitter hasn't slowed down as he played LAPC I noticed... maybe he is actually financially fine as I've heard mentioned and really just wont pay. GL all
Disagree with decisions not to pay back the guy he owes when he can but I don't think his points should be completely ignored as lots of people consider principle > than $, especially if they're wealthy.
Regardless, what captured my interest most is the book he mentioned bc of personal relevance. My grandfather who is a very successful, well respected & extremely honest businessman that started from nothing recommended it to me a few years ago as the most important book he's ever read in his life. I immaturely didn't follow up but seeing this mentioned reminded it to me & I'm going to.
2+2's standard operating procedure for going after scummy people is very effective & worthwhile, especially in this day & age of the internet, but there are bound to be instances where it backfires bc someone wants to be a jerk to make a point. I'll also say that being a jerk to make a point can backfire really ***** hard.
Edog's situation is an extraordinarily extreme case & obv a lot of people could have been saved if this **** was put out in the open earlier. Thankfully it is, otherwise it'd continue. Having said that, alot of the people who didn't out Edog did so for selfish reasons to keep the fish in action & took a calculated risk that's probably going to backfire.
