Disaster Strikes In Threes! Sandy Sucking The Life Out of Connecticut? #humor

When disaster visits, it often arrives in sets of 3.

The State of Connecticut hit the perverse lottery with Hurricane Sandy, Sandy Hook and Sandy Pants.

Woe upon the people of Connecticut for the ill tides which included a hurricane,  the eternally lame Constitionally maimed and brain drained, and a mass shooting.

If you listen closely you can hear the sucking of life from the greater Northeast into Greenwich where a madman cackles with glee.

It’s kind of like the Ghostbusters like that.




Addressing Scandalous And Malicious Lies On @Twitter CC: @jack @policy @support @sfdaoffice

It pains me to do  this, however I feel I must.

@Koustave is one of my oldest friends online and is always supportive and is a great person.

Due to sheer volume of the malicious lies by men such as Keith Gill and Chris Sandys, I must address the following lie.

I have no idea where this lie originates from, however the sheer volume of the attack, with seemingly over 100 (I haven’t counted) tweets received compels me to address it.


I do not, nor have I ever run any social media account for @koustave.

I have not cyber harassed anyone.

Lies like these are told by malicious individuals seeking to compel silence on truth, a silence they cannot accomplish through traditional legal remedies or good faith discussion of pertinent facts.

People like this have no ethics, morals, business sense, logical argument or ability to apply reason.

They seem to exist for one reason and one reason alone.  To do damage to others by any means neceesary, including through application of “superior force.”

I am voluntarily removing my “mentorship” of Koustave from my bio and Linked.in and any other post or profile.

However me and @koustave remain best buddies.

I suggest you avoid people who act maliciously in bad faith to damage others reputations.

It’s strange that Twitter will moderate the truth, but will allow scandalous lies to be tweeted in incredible volume with absolutely malicious intent.

I will be contemplating what further course of action to take in the new year.

I wish everyone a Merry Christmas.


Why didn’t “Support Group” of #Celebrity Nancy Abt Seek Appropriate Medical Care for Her?

Celebrity Nancy Abt, sister of TV Attorney Jay Abt was housebound and needed appropriate medical care.

She had recently come into contact with what she later described as her “support group”.

These people included Keith Gill, AKA @Digitalkeith and Chris Sandys, @usafa_93.

Why didn’t this so called “support group” seek appropriate medical attention for this person who clearly needed help when advised she was housebound?

What kind of “support group” acts so.

Here Nancy Abt tweets her displeasure to the men, but they fail to respond with appropriate compassion, kindness or care.

It seems a clear case of abuse to me.

Cant leave house

What If Everything Was Like #Klout? Former Klout Score Evangelist Changes Mind About #Klout?

“Social Sales” rock star, leader of EmpireKred (now owned by Kred),  and former Klout score gaming evangelist Keith Gill, AKA #DigitalKeith, knows this.

Keith Gill, AKA Digital Keith is a corporate marketing manager for @avisolve.

Klout is a tool for measuring your social media presence and influence.

Like Kred, it’s just a tool, it’s not an end to itself or the end all be all of measuring your social media presence.


Apparently Nance Larson, former team leader at Empire Avenue, and now staff at EmpireKred (owned by Kred), feels their competitor Kout,  “is no fun.”



You never know who you are interacting with that has tremendous influence in social media or beyond.

But what if all social media interactions were like Klout tweets or Kred tweets where people give and get thanks for telling others how much influence they have?

Even on personal matters not related to their professional conduct online?






Would this level of social interaction improve your presence?  Improve your dating life?

Or would you consider such interaction and discussion an invasion of your privacy, and such people who do so as socially deviant?





#ChrisSandys, The Communal Jihadi Leader of #EmpireKred #Eav #socialmedia

Why does EmpireKred have an inherited “goon squad” of vicious evangelists that are willing to use threats against other customers in order to keep a long record of abuse of customers “off the record”?

What kind of company not only bullies their own customers, refuses to act to stop bullying by leaders and then attempts to silence the reporting of that bullying to other consumers so they can be informed about what may happen to them if they spend money at Empire Avenue (now EmpireKred)?


It’s strange that Chris Sandys, leader of EmpireKred would transmit a message that the bullying and attacks on customers should be “off the record” rather than deal forthrightly with the bullying by Gareth Davies and others of other customers.

However that’s exactly what Chris Sandys has done.

Then, unable to silence the blogging, he, Nance Larson, Keith Gill and Gareth Davies have engaged in continued bullying to include doxing, violent threats and non violent threats, fabrications and false allegations to try to exert pressure to silence the perfectly valid content being generated.


An example of Chris Sandys lies.

I haven’t been banned from EK.  In fact, the “support” desk indicates I have no relationship with the company and am not a customer.

That’s ok.  That’s perfect, that’s just how I like it now.

It leaves me free to write exactly what happens at EmpireKred without worrying about their Terms of Service that they don’t apply to the vicious acts of Chris Sandys, et al, but do apply if you report false advertising by Keith Gill…

Imagine, being suspended for being worried about false advertising being run through Empire Avenue’s social media promotions system.

Even as Robby Ball, admin failed to act to stop the falsehoods as they were being reported directly to him on Facebook.

Want to be abused by a company that won’t act to stop abuse by Chris Sandys, Keith Gill, Nance Larson and Gareth Davies?

Give EmpireKred a try with your limited ad budget.

With a long history of attacking customers (Stretching back years) , you simply never know when you will be attacked by them.  They’ve done it before, can do it again.

PS:  My side is clear.  It’s the US.  Chris Sandys side is the non Constitution acknowledging or knowledable of side.

Chris Sandys remains one of the worst liars I have ever encountered.  Strangely the other “worst liars” are these same people from EmpireKred…

Chris Sandys has been warned by twitter for non violent threats for his part in the conduct that led to a CA DOJ inquiry of Twitter’s behavior in all this.  (Much of the abuse by Empire Avenue, now EmpireKred leaders has taken place openly on Twitter.)




Hobbled By #SocialMedia Beggars Trying to Steal Your Sunshine?

To many so called “social media experts” and “social sales rock stars” are social media dingleberry klingons trying to rub off some of your shine into their shaded area.

Don’t be fooled by their chatter amongst themselves.

Just watch what they do.

For instance Keith Gill, AKA DigitalKeith buys tweets on fiverr, spams and trolls celebrities, and engages in cyberbullying to try to control what other people write about, even if it’s perfectly valid subject matter.

These people simply should be avoided, blocked and left to their own devices.

Say no to Social Media beggars and klingons!

(Not coincidentally these people are Leaders at EmpireKred.)

Leave them to their shaded playground, and move into the light where the organic goodness grows!

Protect your community from the wild uncouth weeds of social media.



Why Does #EmpireKred, A #Socialmedia Company, Have Anti-social Leaders?

According to one well placed source at EmpireKred ( A leader),

These animals are driving average user away surely

With perhaps,

I think 150-200 unique users a day max

Of course another 200-300 run buys on avenue.io but that could hardly be described as “active”

Why does a gaming company, whose leaders activities on twitter triggered a CA DoJ investigation into Twitter (and the SF DA’s office twice opened files) not take responsiblity for the obvious assault on their own customers, which violates their own Terms of Service, at least, and resulting loss of business to themselves?




No, EmpireKred doesn’t direct social media posts by other players, but they can and should enforce their Terms of Service to protect customers attacked by these vicious “goon squad” types, Chris Sandys, Gareth Davies, Nance Larson and Keith Gill.

From EmpireKred’s Terms of Service:




As a current customer of Kred’s, which owns EmpireKred, I am subject to continued harassment and abuse by DigitalKeith, who seems to think he can bully me out of consumer affairs blogging.

Keith Gill is a direct affront to freedom of speech and American values.  I’m surprised he’s welcome at EmpireKred.


Obviously when a company sells a product that allows customers to run the company, that is simply not a “player”.

They become what Empire Avenue sold, Leaders who help run the company.

EmpireKred can deny any association with the prior company, however what the customers bought prior to EmpireKred taking over is clear.

Personally I think it’s Lynn O’Connell on the “support” desk in any case.

Or whoever it is is just a mindless parrot shoveling the same drivel that’s been said since they sold “Leaders” then tried to state the leadership isn’t what they sold in the EAV Leaders community (Richard Townsend, Brand Manager Admin, approximately 5/2014 in a thread opened by Chris Voss.)

Why anyone would want to be a customer of a company with a “goon squad” that disregards their own Terms of Service and allows some customers (and after 4/2014, Leaders) to viciously attack other customers with threats, doxing, harassment and intimidation is quite beyond me.

Chris Sandys *@usafa_93) is exemplary of the “goon squad.”

Given to false accusations (seemingly hysterical) in order to try to keep the abuse of customers “off the record”, it’s clear he damages EmpireKred’s potential future business.

Mr. Sandys has been warned by Twitter for non violent threats and seems to be not concerned at all about tremendous physical abuse by Ray Rice, of his spouse.

Why didn’t Empire Avenue simply stop the abuse of customers by Gareth Davies and others?

  Chris Sandys Off the record

Chris Sandys No More Camping TripsChris Sandys Meat Puppet

I think Chris Sandys has been hitting the sauce a bit hard, or sniffing to much funny powder, perhaps?

The woefully ill prepared Mr. Sandys has now taken to attempting to debate law with an extraordinarily well qualified lawyer on Twitter.

The lawyer won’t engage, as he knows what a Troll is, and teaches others how to avoid them.

Popcorn, anyone?  It’s uneventful theatre, however.


Twitter however isn’t a social media neophyte, like Chris Sandys, and realizes the impact on their bottom line and changed their policy after Dick Costolo, then CEO realized they sucked at preventing abuse.

Why is a neophyte Leader allowed to attack customers?

Twitter General Council Vijaya Gadde penned a Washing Post Op-Ed:

Twitter executive: Here’s how we’re trying to stop abuse while preserving free speech

“Twitter CEO: ‘We suck at dealing with abuse” 


Gareth Davies (@me_gareth) has been suspended by Twitter for tweeting a customer of Empire Avenue’s private information and violent threats.  Additionally he was warned for violent threats.

Gareth Davies has a long history of antisocial attacks on other customers of Empire Avenue’s, that were not stopped by Empire Avenue admins.

In fact, he boasts about being on a “rampage” and being hard to stop in the Empire Avenue forums.



Keith Gill (@digitalkeith) was moderated by Instagram for cyberbullying, and had his twitter account locked.

Nance Larson (@nancelarson), currently identified as “Staff” on the EmpireKred website participated in the doxing of a customer.

It’s clear there is a “goon squad” at EmpireKred, as first reported by Chris Voss, noted social media expert,

Empire Avenue Fail 5 post overview: Over 5 posts on my blogs I documented issues with Empire Avenue, from their rogue volunteers, running a “wall of shame” on Brands, attacking Brands reputations online, not answering complaints, having a “goon squad” of endorsed volunteers attacking customers who complained, refusing to discipline internally thereby encouraging more attacks on Brands, etc. What I witnessed was the worst travesty in the annals of customer service I have ever seen. After a month of private discussions with EA to change things, I went public. Only then did they begin to change, but the attacks on me and others grew by their “goon squad.” In the end, I went to EA’s Angel Investor and EA had to shut down its Chat Room and Chat Mod “goons squad.” EA shamelessly has never apologized or produced it damning chat logs as promised by their CEO. This is one of those posts, you can read the rest by Search in the upper right for ‘Empire.’ Don’t play EA or if you do save your REAL money.

A company is responsible for overseeing its reps and volunteers that are endorsed and sanctioned by the company, in making sure they are in line with a Company code of conduct. Let me ask you something, if you were to go into Walmart or Nordstoms, make a complaint with Customer Service would you expect or allow yourself to continually be attacked and bullied by their Company volunteer staff? Then over a month it continues and gets worse the more you complain? I’m warning everyone with no question to avoid Empire Avenue. If your Brand comes under the ire of one of their rogue Chat Mods, Empire Avenue can’t protect the bashing of your Brand and doesn’t seem to care in my opinion. I’m telling people to run from this company, keep your money or ask for a refund. This is a perfect example of a social media fail everyone should be blogging about and making lesson plans on!


Bullies Changed Policy

Are You A Woman, In #SocialMedia And Want To Potentially Be Abused Online? Try #EmpireKred

Want to place your social media business at risk?  Give EmpireKred a try.

If you are a woman, in socialmedia, and want to be abused by leaders of a company you’re a customer of give EmpireKred a try.

Gareth Davies, Chris Sandys and Keith Gill, leaders at EmpireKred, have an extensive history of abusing women online.

Women have told me they have left Empire Avenue (since purchased by EmpireKred) or greatly reduced their use of Empire Avenue due to attacks by Gareth Davies.

Chris Sandys has a history of attacking female customers, referring to one as an “idiot” and heaping abuse upon her on Facebook.

Amazingly Chris Sandys feels the victim of Ray Rice was at fault for being viciously struck in the face by her professional football playing husband.

Chris Sandys Beatdown


Keith Gill apparently feels a woman who has never threatened anyone and who is a daughter of Hollywood and whose niece was recently married in the Nixon library is somehow “creepy.”  (I suspect Keith Gill is actually a mangina.)



According to reports Mr. Davies and Mr. Gill are expert hackers (they claim expertise) and can DM you on EmpireKred despite having them blocked.

Gareth Davies can attack you on facebook chat (now messenger) whether you are friended with him or not.  He simply “pops up” in chat and launches vicious attacks.

EmpireKred is unresponsive to complaints, and denies responsibility for their Leaders actions, despite clear ToS provisions that would seemingly prevent such behavior.

Want to place your social media business at risk?  Give EmpireKred a try.


These are the men of EmpireKred.

Empire Avenue Purchase the “Poison Pill” of “New #Kred’s #SocialMedia Strategy

Should people go to prison for cyberbullying?  People such as Keith Gill who has been moderated by Instagram for cyberbullying?



That’s up to the authorities.

I knew Keith Gill, AKA DigitalKeith, leader of EmpireKred was slow on the uptake after I couldn’t make it clear to him that Twitter wasn’t the key to Klout scores, despite his trolling on my blog and abusive missions he created on Empire Avenue.

I thought that clearly conveying known information would help Keith Gill, but he was clearly defensive of his article on Sales 4 Life and refused to accept true and correct information even after @kloutsupport confirmed that I was indeed correct.

Keith Gill’s difficulty is confirmed when Keith Gill can’t get a simple analogy and blames it on his Aspergers.

Now we know DigitalKeith needs special consideration, people.

He has Aspergers.


How is Empire Avenue potentially the “poison pill” for PeopleBrowsr, AKA Kred?

Through inheritance of Empire Avenue’s abusive leaders and refusal to deal with the inherited reputation that Chris Sandys, Keith Gill, Gareth Davies and Nance Larson helped build, that of having a “goon squad.”

Chris Sandys has been moderated by Twitter for non violent threats.

Gareth Davies was moderated by Twitter for violent threats, tweeting private information (doxing) and warned yet again for violent threats.

Keith Gill had his twitter account locked and was moderated by Instagram for cyberbullying.

Nance Larson participated in doxing of a customer of Empire Avenue’s in conjunction with the above “goon squad” acts.


The “Sharing” Economy And The Law ~ Rules And Regulations For A Digital Age #socialmedia #socialsales #eav

When social media platforms refuse to act, consumers need (and in California have) potential remedies to predatory acts by companies and their “goons” available.

However, the understanding of what is an “Anticompetitive Act” needs to change in relation to the quick changing digital economy.

When companies refuse to reign in their “leaders” and insist that these people are all “players” of which they have no control, despite their own Terms of Services which spells out limits on behavior that can be linked or conducted, again, Regulators need to act.

This action is necessary only because of the predatory and some thing anti-competitive acts of certain actors in the digital economy.

For instance, is this an “Anticompetitive Act” by Gareth Davies as he spent in game currency to cause people to block and unfollow another “player” and customer of Empire Avenue?


Did it damage the business of the other Empire Avenue player? I’m unsure.

However I think most people think spending resources to cause people to unfollow another is anti social at least and potentially harmful to business.

With the “sharing” economy being the future according to Entrepreneur magazine, and costs and risk transferred to the end consumer, that being the typical social media platform user, entrepreneurs and larger businesses need to watch out for predators such as Gareth Davies OR they will lose the trust of consumers who will go onto the next platform that will keep them safe.

This is the problem Twitter currently has, as their moderation was substantially out of step with other larger social media platforms, and consequently Dick Costolo (then CEO) resigned subsequent to a very public “apology” tour (We suck at dealing with abuse”) centered on the abuse they had allowed on their platform, and VIjaya Gadde wrote a WA-PO op ed detailing how their policies were changing and they would be fighting abuse in future while protecting free speech.

If a San Francisco based corporation won’t deal with their abusive leaders, for consumers the next step is the San Francisco DA’s Office and the California DoJ amongst other potential remedies.

And regulators may adapt to the new digital economy and reconsider what is, and is not, an anticompetitive act.

Gareth Davies, a leader at EmpireKred has been suspended by Twitter for violent threats and tweeting the private information of a customer of then Empire Avenue’s.  Empire Avenue refused to act to stop the abuse.

Chris Sandys (@usafa_93), also a “leader” at Empire Avenue wanted that history of abuse “off the record” and has a history of false allegations.
