for me learning for next time, is how to uncover this information in searches etc. before investing. i did the requisite search but found nothing but gildwulf suggested he got this info in 30 seconds. taking that at face value, i want to understand how so next time im looking into xyz i look for all the relevant data as i clearly missed the obv if gildwulf could find this in so short of time
Search for all threads started by HIV by typing HIV in the upper right corner and changing the bar to 'all threads' and clicking search. Should be pretty much the minimum prerequisite before giving a guy thousands of dollars. If you wanted to do a more thorough combing (I would suggest this for next time), I would search all posts so you can get an idea of what someone is like. There are at least 6 other posts in that search that indicate huge amounts of degeneracy.
For instance, right after he writes this post
he makes this thread
in BBV about how he dumps all his money at 200 400.
Or the time he played me hu and lost most of his bankroll after the Sunday Million and owed a LOT of people money, including Grimmstarr for 5-10k in Chinese poker money
and never paid him back
He has done this type of thing probably a dozen times over 4 years and it is well-documented on 2p2.
re: nose "investing in unknowns"...what makes this so funny/sad/very funny is he is a very obviously known degenerate/scumbag/terrible with other people's money to anyone who has been posting on 2p2 for more than 2 years and people in this thread. This include Fitzcat, who very sketchily pimps out his friend HIV even though he knows very well this history, posted in most of my hiv grudge match threads, and does not disclose anything (if you are going to get pissy at someone, get pissy at him). The rest of the older posters in this thread have either forgotten or just ignored it to wait for the impending trainwreck. I mean, come on, his trainwreck threads in BBV which is the most widely read forum on 2p2 have 60,000+ hits and are in the bbv STICKY for god's sake.
