I don't understand the random forum newb hate.

1. Howard is a self-serving POS.
2. DF is putting together why.
3. If you have followed every story line since BF, then most will not be new information. If you haven't and someone says #1, then this will likely be a very good reference.
4. Even if there is no revealing info(would be the opposite of what BFChad has said), anything that brings attention to #1 is very good. Just look at how easy Annie Duke was able to move on to her next scam. It's because no one knew/cared how shady she was. Howard can't even sit at a table right now without headphones, and that isn't going away any time soon.

Unless you think 1 isn't true, you can't really hate on DF for much.

Re: Diamond Flush Articles: The Distortion of Truth from the Lederer Files

I lost so much interest and there doesn't seem to be anything exciting from the new parts from DF. I stopped at part 4.

Would be super great if someone did cliffs on everything from DF.

Re: Diamond Flush Articles: The Distortion of Truth from the Lederer Files

Perhaps DF was waiting for this in order to finish her story as well as possible?

Re: Diamond Flush Articles: The Distortion of Truth from the Lederer Files

Is this series still happening or did some recent events change the plan? I have been pretty out of touch lately so it's definitely possible I missed some big news but the last published part did indicate one more article in the works.

Very tough to do cliffs because everything is written and it is a lot to break down.

Druff did a good radio piece with chad ellie that was about 2 hours long. Was a great listen and easy to follow along

I just asked on twitter, reply: "very sorry for delays, some unforeseen personal issues have kept me away for 2 weeks, hope to finish by the end of this week. "

If we look at the numbers, giving the correct weight to every seizure that has happened throughout the existence of the company, every distribution dollar that was paid, every dollar that was stolen by crooked processors, operational expense dollars that were spent for, among other things, marketing, legal etc, including a vast increase in employee numbers, and the e-check backlog of approximately $ 120 million, I find that there should still be approximately $ 200 million in excess cash, possibly more. Unless it’s possible that zero, literally zero, dollars in profit were generated from more than an additional $ 1.2 billion in revenue in the 3 years prior to Black Friday, the numbers don’t add up.
This is never going to end.

DOJ can't find a reason to put him in jail. Two interviews and others tried to find something. The only thing they found was he had a social lunch with a money guy.

I think it's over....

I always wondered about the appearance fees - patches, pad shows, etc - shareholders were getting paid a bunch in excess of distributions, plus shareholders' buddies too, I wonder how much went in 'marketing'

It's been disussed before. If the DOJ wanted him in jail, he would be. The DOJ is going to settle for his assets.

Re: Diamond Flush Articles: The Distortion of Truth from the Lederer Files

Did any of you guys even bother to read DF's summary? Biggest revelations being (IMO), that according to her calculations there is still a very large sum of money unaccounted for, and then the stuff about Howard's resignation/non-resignation in 2008 and the events that subsequently followed. Lots of 'even more shady than previously known' dealings brought out.

DF does it once again....excellent job of analysis and food for thought.

Will continue to stay tuned as this seemingly never ending real life soap opera keeps unfolding, especially because it has touched so many of us here personally, and that so many of those involved are people that are "known" to us in varying degrees.
