Can anyone break it down for me? While I mostly come to Streeteasy for education from the likes of NWT, Front Porch, KeithB, Urbandigs and Inonada, I frequently find myself reading the banter among some of the other regulars for the sheer entertainment of it. What is the history between these folks, and are there alliances among them? E.g., do Aboutready and Alanhart typically agree? Do Huntersburg and Columbia County ever agree? etc.
It's been suggested that Columbia county and Huntersburg are one and the same
I also find NWT to be the most informative
What is it that interests you? Last week inonada said that certain races were prone to being heavier. He hasn't identified those races, but he hasn't backed off of his statement.
How many times have you repeated your nonsensical statement?
>It's been suggested that Columbia county and Huntersburg are one and the same
He is my left big toe.
Jets.... Aka dildo faction.
It started with bull/bear years ago, pretty clear lines... but as numbers came in over the years, and the bulls sorta changed their tunes (for most, without admitting error), this got shattered a bit, with the center sort of turning on the extremes on both sides (stevehjx, stevef, who both left the board, ericho, LICC). And some of these specific rivalries popped up...
and elsewhere, a perma bear with opinions on much, will get hissiest with anyoner who cares to have at him--quite funny was his frequesnt evisceration of plowjop (bj, my personal troll) a while back--i used to be Ubottom, then Wbottom, the U and the W expressing my sense of how RE price charts might evolve--i get along with everyone, including you, despite your inferior pedigree, as advertised earlier
i grew up on 5th ave, springs at the everglades in palm bch, or in hobe sound, summers out east at the stone, hunt in millbrook (fox/bird), Christmas at courchevel or stratton in lean years
bottoms, question for you: if someone is "trolling" you and yet you keep mentioning that person in threads where he/she has not posted, what does that make you?
Also, why the change from bottoms to yikes?
"a perma bear with opinions on much, will get hissiest with anyoner who cares to have at him"
Actually, that describes you perfectly. Except all the slurping you do.
Like I said, I have my very own personal pet troll.
Without lifting a pinky, I have the obsessive attention of another human. It's like having a stalker, but without the negatives; all amusement.
Wow. I've actually tossed my troll 2 bones in one day. She's foaming at this point.
Oh, no answers. Really unlike you, bottoms... All amusement indeed!
sorry, no more bones for my pet troll today--back to your normal state of yearning bonelessness!
Well, to clarify, RE bear, stock bull... though I'm re-evaluating these last few months on both, so not quite sure on the perma- part. But I'll take the opinionated comment, that is fair.
And what's this on pedigree?
Why did you change the name anyway?
pedigree was for the OP, who offered, in another thread, some details which clarified wealth and societal position.
why you so hateful on stevie? you wasted no time joining in the gang-beating.
cue plowjop! (is that a bone of sorts?--albeit a small one)...ok, that's 3 today--she's had a windfall
I've been a positing for about a year but have used SE longer. I don't think RE in NY is a good investment unless you have a long time horizon. I don't have an agenda, but will call out the BShitters that do. Especially if they are wrong. I find this se "talk" informative and entertaining, so I contribute.. a lot of the times, I admit, nonsense., sometimes not.
"I don't have an agenda."
If you believe that, I've got a bridge to sell you. LOL!!
and Wa la-- the dope with an agenda appears.. perfect example..... lol.. really LMFAO!!!
Brooksie, I think the heat is getting to you! LOL!
Now back to the Bronx with you! LOL!
"(is that a bone of sorts?--albeit a small one)...ok, that's 3 today--she's had a windfall"
bottoms ain't just a troll, he's apparently a misogynist too. Yikes is a spot-on name for you.
"why you so hateful on stevie? you wasted no time joining in the gang-beating."
Really cute that you feel the need to ride to his defense all the time.
Yikes: Courcheval - nice; our Christmases were Hobe Sound; but spring break was always Aspen. You do seem like a jovial sort, and I thank you for all responses to posts.
Somewherelse: Thank you for the overview. The specific rivalries are hilarious, except sometimes they go too far.
Brooks2: Your posts do appear sincere, without agenda and not uninformed. I appreciate and thank you for them.
RENY - You also seem good natured, except for whatever is going on with Brooks2; I likewise appreciate your posts and thank you for them.
bjw2103 - Obviously some history with bottoms; perfect example of type of relationship that is a mystery to newcomers such as myself.
>You do seem like a jovial sort,
Are you for real? This is a guy you want nowhere near women or children.
I haven't seen any of that; as noted, I am a relative newcomer and can only go by what I've read.
Right here on this thread, he calls bjw (who is male), a female. Is it ok to you that being called a female is deemed insulting?
Don't pretend to be so naive. You created this thread, you knew what you were doing. You've acknowledged at least 3 posting names and have used streeteasy forums for your personal vendettas.
Oh my - I really was just curious. How am I supposed to know that bjw is a male and that Yikes knew that bjw is male and intended to insult him by calling him a her? Really? Again, this is exactly the type of inside baseball stuff that I was hoping someone would explain so that I could better understand the odd interactions that I observe. Agree that having 3 names was not top form, but I am totally comfortable with totality of information conveyed; not a personal vendetta, but rather simply information that I would have liked to have had about the building when I first came to New York. If conveying accurate information is a personal vendetta, then guilty as charged. I hate bullies and can only imagine how many people that individual/organization has taken advantage of. Disgusting. Indeed, the staff of the building was cheering me on in the confrontations. My conscience is clean in terms of using SE forums for their intended purpose. As for purpose of this thread, there are greyed out posters whose posts ring true to me, and I was trying to figure out whom to credit by virtue of whether they follow any of those posters I have identified that make sense to me.
So SE is like Bachelor Pad, Survivor, or Big Brother? We have secret alliances? Am I the villian then? I love it.
I think people agree with some people more than others but never with everyone always.
It's paranoid bitter renters who have been waiting for a market crash for 30 years running, and accusing anyone who owns their property to be a shill realtor. It's them vs. the sane people of the world.
NYCNovice, well I did point out bottoms/yikes' misogyny, but that's ok, it's not immediately obvious how much of a troll he is until you read a bit more of his drivel. Worth pointing out as well that he switched from bottoms to yikes because StreetEasy admin put him under troll control (ie: his posts were greyed out), because, well, he trolls. And as a troll will do, he deflects from these facts by pretending others are trolls. Pretty textbook stuff actually.
Dealturd. W67 likes tulips. W67 likes pearls. W67 likes Real estate. w67 likes sports cars, mclarens especially.
W67 likes having cash the most. W67 has found cash to be the hardest thing to come by.
Only one thing amongst the items listed above is NOT fairly priced.
The fact some 80yo bag lady sold you a $350k walk up studio at peak 2007 prices after having bought it for $1k and a blowjob 40 yrs ago makes it a ruinous blowjob for you.
SE is no different from a H.S. lunchroom. aboutready and alanfart have an unusual relationship, overall, they are both unusual. The most normal posters to SE are: somewhereelse and Truth. bjw2103 is an incredible liar, who does not know the what principal is.
>And as a troll will do, he deflects from these facts by pretending others are trolls. Pretty textbook stuff actually.
Speaking of textbooks, bjw thought that you'd get a tax deduction from early paydown of principal in a mortgage.
He thinks he's a numbers guy but doesn't know basics of principal and interest.
His condo does have energy efficient lightbulbs though.
>So SE is like Bachelor Pad, Survivor, or Big Brother? We have secret alliances? Am I the villian then? I love it.
You are the out of place Californian idiot with greater anger issues than even columbiacounty. Plus you keep insisting that the worst neighborhoods in Manhattan are somehow the best, further evidencing how out of place you truly are.
Angry he is; I don't understand why he continually call people names. I'm certain jason would not like it if people called him names.
"It's paranoid bitter renters who have been waiting for a market crash for 30 years running,"
The market DID crash in 2007, or did you not notice?
Well, to be fair, steve is very quick to start with the insults... including some pretty offensive nicknames... all while being the first to complain to streeteasy about the things he himself is (more) guilty of.
>Well, to be fair
"The most normal posters .... are ... and truth."
Good call dumbo. That was before her historic and histrionic meltdown involving bigoted comments about the sex lives of minors and horrifically nasty comments about the absolutely irrelevant alleged sex life of another poster.
Perhaps SE will feel that my comment is trollish, but given the history and circumstances I can't SE how.
>Perhaps SE will feel that my comment is trollish
Oh, who are they to judge?
sometimes brooks2 is my alias, sometimes i m his
what about Al_assad or str33teasie?
Alliances advance common goals and interests. Factions are groups of people in a larger organization that have a common interest. Except here there are no goals or interests except creating spew and chaos and hurting the Street easy brand.
Is that a confession, Riversider?
>Except here there are no goals or interests except creating spew and chaos and hurting the Street easy brand.
How are you hurting the streeteasy brand? I think it's actually helpful for the average reader to see that other readers aren't so bright, this way they aren't intimidated when they consider participating in the forums.
>what about Al_assad or str33teasie?
How come they haven't been used lately?
Dont know? Maybe same reason why Columbia county has not been around?
You really haven't seen columbiacounty around? Nice try.
Shoot meant to post under caonima
Another hypocritical comment by RS.
I am pleased to say that I COMPLETELY disagree with you, aboutready.
I'll take that hypocritical comment any day over RS's usual totally off-topic posts about financial markets, government policies, macroeconomics, the Cream Cheese Index (TM), and the rest of his completely disruptive posts ... a mind-boggling 12,451 for that one handle alone. Imagine what the total comes to.
He's just trying to improve the "Easy Street" brand.
Your pleasure must be great, completely being in all caps.
Uh oh, fraction in the faction?
That's like, insane in the brain.
With, like, awesome sauce.
Fraction in the faction somehow brings back memories of conjunction junction. I know, not at all relevant, but word associations and all that.
What kind of sauce would that be? Sweet and sour?
Get over it, seriously! The story is old. I'm at a loss-for-words.
The "factions and alliances" was reference to Federalist Paper No. 10; very distressed that somehow it was associated with Big Brother. In any event, after two weeks of study, I think I've pretty much figured them out, though for the life of me, the vitriol continues to mystify me.
How many names do you now post under?
Do you know Charlie?
kinder young, kinder now
"after two weeks of study" LMAO.
from 2006 article (name of publication withheld by me)
Mystery Flack Likes to Slime
So just who is ##### ###### * ? The self-identified music publicist’s name is suddenly turning up in a lot of places, first for throwing mud at the memory of Billy Preston, and now for casting aspersions on Heather Mills-McCartney.
The trouble is, no one in the music biz seems to know a ###### ######s. Her name doesn’t appear in searches of the Billboard, Variety or Hollywood Reporter archives. Cursory Web searches also turn up nothing.…
* = SE's Truth
ph41, you just had to go there. although I'll confess I've been tempted for a long, long time.
Oh, there you go again ph41 ... taking something about a hateful, nasty empty nothing of an individual and just *assuming* that that something is about the nothing trUth.
Anyway, I happen to know that trUth's real name is not ##### ######.
Any similarities between the two self-identified self-aggrandizing self-medicated aged groupies is purely coincidental.
ph41 is here with her detective skills.
My name never has needed to appear in searches of Billboard...
Until Richard Johnson of Page Six called me to ask about the Billy Preston story, my name didn't appear in any publication.
Only my clients' names. That's the job.
and aboutready has been tempted for a long, long time...
Where, anywhere does aboutready's real name appear in the Press? Go back to 2006. Go back to any year.
ph41 and alkieaboutready: a match made in drunken heaven.
ph41:the new recruit to the bully gang.
Also can't hold her drinking.
ph41 just roasted that splattered black swan.
She's going to serve it for dinner in her penthouse tonight.
I feel so wounded.
Apply the drink in your hand to your wound.
Your stomach won't miss it.
TrUth, enough with the racism! I know you grew up in all-white Rego Park, and chose to live in and summer in an unbroken chain of lily-white areas since that long-ago time, and that you like to drag a busful of black people from East New York through the east end for the shock value of it whenever you can, but this roasting a black swan crap must stop. cease. desist.
alkieaboutready, alkiealanhart and alkieph41:
three drunken peas in a pod.
One pea in a penthouse pod, defending herself against others on se who accuse her of not living in a good enough building.
One pea, who posted a comment on se about how she "knows that Brooklyn is not for her."
and now she owns there. ph41 has posted insults about the aboutready Brooklyn purchase.
But alkies will bond with whoever has the bottle. Even if they don't like each other.
The other drunken pea is living out his retirement in his co-op while posting drunken comments on se.
And one pee in her Depends.
Yes, aboutready needs extra large size adult diapers.
Speaking of that, do they charge you the same for one very very gigantically large cup as they do all their other customers who need two regular-size cups?
They need to let stuff go! SMH.
aboutready 15 years ago? LMAO.
It's the only stuff they have.
truth let's things go all the time.
watch what you say babygirl.
i watch everything i say on SE, as it flows from my thoughts via my fingertips to print.
You sure do, even the racist dreck you spew, big girl. LMAO.
also, btw, paxil is a psychoactive drug, but you probably take abilify now. please, stop talking about class, civility, and gentility, you don't exercise any of those attributes. btw, what is your doctor name and number, you had more than a few series of ill-episodes this summer, something about the summer makes you episodic illy.
moldfungus, you really shouldn't look in trUth's handbag.
You should really look into your own luggage. Guys, seriously, this is getting tired. Initially, the bickering was funny, now its outright stupid.
so why do you continue? after being such a vicious bitchy contributor? now you decide it should end?
fuck no, asshole.
go take some paxil. i'm drug-free and have been for fifteen years. i doubt your friend "truth" can claim the same.
not that there's anything wrong with that. unless there is.
you know i can go on-and-on, I'm taking you up on the offer-of-continuation. LMAO. You unstable itchbay, you have moved abnormally, and entirely too much for a family. You probably moved due to the trouble you start in your building/neighborhood. I don't need paxil or abilify because I'm not depressed unlike yourself. You probably took paxil because Ralph was going to leave you, and you would of have had to maintain employment, as you have never been able to achieve. As I stated before, because you were in the dorm, at Yale, getting high, drunk, and having sex did not mean you were a student there.
Please put the red wine away around those teenagers, we don't want them to turn out like you: dependent of alcohol. They won't be gulping on the sly.
mutombo, you need a writing instructor, and yesterday.
aboutready, you need mental health, and yesterday.
Eight years in PCV? that's some massively abnormal familial movement.
you're f'ng stupid dumbo. this, however, was possibly one of your dumbest posts ever, although bjw should chime in because he has record of some truly awesome ones. i think sometimes one of the brighter inmates at your group home helps you compose a cogent message. but obviously there has been no help today.
oh dumbo, you're projecting on behalf of your self-proclaimed "bff" truth. you make your bed, you lie in it, if you wake up with fleas, so be it.
Where in the heck did you live before the 8 years in PCV? LMAO. Do I need to link your editorial on your love of RE and how frequently-not-infrequently, you moved? LMAO. How dare you talk about cogent, and your BeBe's Kids creative story is a farce to clean up your racist remarks to me on SE. If the blind side adoption was true, I don't think the adoption agency would think highly of you due to your 'plank you' comments. Do the adoption agency know of your abuse of prescription drugs, big girl? Do the adoption agency know of the red wine you leave for easy access to the teens? Continually, calling me dumb and stupid will not get you far, I got you on the short leash, big girl. LMAO. How the hell your adopting a child, and you were a threat to your infant daughter? I would like to know why you can't maintain a job, big girl?
Coming from the bitch who woke up with depression.
There's ar, trying to enlist support for her vicious attacks. Hold your own, you bat-shit-crazy slut.
oh my god dumbo, like anyone would give the smallest credence to your ravings. sad. pathetic.
Coming from you, when you said you would not waste any slights on me. A contradictor you are, but you are consistent in your contradiction. No wonder why you can't maintain employment, but called your supervisor a bitch for not producing what you were hired to do. Ralph has to perform swimmingly and be remunerative since you can't. I'd like to get down to the nitty gritty of your depression, and why you were a threat to your daughter. Up late again, is Ralph in Europe conducting business? LMAO.
Ralph may be book smart, but he is stupid for marrying you. LMAO.
