Some people only read the posts--a mistake on their parts. I can kick a topic to life, but the people that are living it may have several different viewpoints on the subject matter. These were generated by the last post:
Tell Todd/Matt that if the blog has lost steam it's because some people are afraid to post lest they lose their jobs. The lawsuit has done more to damage Frank's rep and his business than the other way around!I know what he means...fear is always a factor....
Todd/Matt/whoever this guy is writes (most likely on his company's time):When it comes down to it, they are just trying to blanket all possiblities with the 1-10 thing. Even if it's determined that my comments were not libelous, they can say that the only way to find the 2-10 is through my account. Were it true, that would be one thing. Now, even with the settings set to forward, blogger doesn't and I haven't even a clue when comments are made.
I only check your blog every few weeks anymore.....You have run out of steam, bro'. Looks like despite your best efforts you have been singularly unsuccessful in bringing Essent to its knees.
This may be a good response in your court case.....you haven't caused a whit of damages, so why the h@#$ are they wasting their time and money suing you? "
Do your homework, Toddster- had you read some of the posts and did a little homweork (in between playing solitaire and tetris on your company's computer), you would have read this company is awash in red ink. From a heavily profitable year (50 grand- woofreakinhoo) to the 4.5 million loss recent reported.
Essent doesn't need Frank's help in FUBARing its facilities, swallowing up all that investment money. They're doing just fine all by themselves. All this humble blog is doing is reporting the truth, which in itself is a dangerous weapon. THAT is what Essent has their shorts in a wad over- people are paying attention to the man behind the curtain, and not the smoke-and-mirrors display run by Dud, dick and Duckboy.
Actually, I must give Essent a little credit- they're the perfect model of how NOT to run an allegedly for-profit company.
-The poster NOT known as Frank a/k/a John Doe number any
"According to the latest American Hospital Directory (AHD.COM)data, when you add up the fiscal performance of all Essent hospitals for fiscal 2007, the company lost $4.5 million. Contrast that to fiscal 2006 when the combined operating profit was $55,000. How long are these idiots going to be able to keep their jobs with losses like these?"And, finally:
Waitaminit...........this is a for-profit chain, right? Supposed to make some money, right? If I were pouring millions of dollars into a corporation, I'd expect them to make a little money, right?
This ain't a for-profit anything- it's a massive tax write-off, a money pit. Pouring good money after bad is not what I call a sound investment.
Matt/Todd/whatever the h___ his name is this week mocks this blog for "not bringing Essent to its knees". I'd say Essent and it's carload of circus clowns are doing a nice job of wrecking this company all by itself- what could this little ol' blog from Texas do, other than report on the train wreck taking place in Nashville, Paris, Ayer, Sharon and SW Pennsylvania.
