A #Cyberbully Called Me A “Troll” On #Twitter. #cybersecurity #socialmedia @jack @safety @policy @support

Gareth Davies, (@me_Gareth) leader of EmpireKred and well known cyberbully (suspended by Twitter for tweeting my private information, and violent threats, warned yet again for violent threats) called me a troll.

This really breaks my heart.

Of course anyone can simply call anyone a troll.

But with the multiple suspensions, and his long history of rampaging around twitter, one has to wonder why a guy that cannot be blocked on Twitter, thus negating a key safety feature, remains welcome on Twitter at all.

StatusPeople.com has an excellent article on “Trolling” and the chilling effect on free speech and how to define a “troll”.

This is causing us to throw around the term Troll carelessly and in the case of Brenda Leyland tragically. It is time we put trolling into perspective. Social Networks are generally a very good place to be — dynamic, constructive and friendly — we should remember that. A more sensible definition of a Troll would be based around two points…

  1. They are directly rude.
  2. They make direct personal threats.

This would clearly seperate cases like Brenda Leyland from the likes of Peter Nunn who are actual Trolls. In addition the authorities should only involve themselves if point 2 is breached.

 

By this definition, that seeks to protect free speech will stopping harm, only one of us is a troll.  And it ain’t me.

Troll just can’t get enough commentary, news and parody coverage I guess.

I’m still astonished @kred and @peoplebrowsr allow @eav_support to not control this predator of their customers.

Dissecting A Conversation With #Troll And #EmpireKred Leader #GarethDavies

One way trolls operate is simply to ignore everything you say, drop context, go off on tangents and proceed without any available evidence, logic or ability to comprehend available evidence.

According to Michael Q. Todd, also a leader of EmpireKred, Gareth Davies (@me_gareth) is one such troll.

Gareth Davies 3 years - Copy

(I cannot explain Michael Q. Todd’s willingness to put up with attacks by Gareth Davies for 3 years or so, nor can I explain his complete inability to think about the public safety and welfare that exposing such people as Gareth Davies helps.)

A sparkling example of this is well known cyberbully, troll and leader of EmpireKred, Gareth Davies.

The day started off as I was minding my own business, having noted the day before or so that people had maliciously bought me twitter followers.

I blogged about the fake followers suddenly appearing on 10/24/2015.

And tweeted to Twitter to advise them.

This is a pathetic, but well known type of petty harassment that trolls and bullies use to try to damage reputations.

It remains viable on Twitter because of the sheer number of fake accounts Twitter allows, along with spam accounts like Keith’s.

And Along came Troll!

Right on time!

This troll happens to have a sax soloist accompanying him.

And tried to launch a vicious trollio attack!

Gareth tries to be trolly, but his lies and silly lack of reason just make it sad.

Needless to say my blogs about him are as truthful as I can make them.

It’s sad that a man that has been suspended by twitter for doxing and violent threats remains able to tweet on twitter, but he does so.

So he lies, blusters, and generally waves his hands about angrily with no real effect.

His well known troll friend Keith Gill, AKA DigitalKeith joined in, but soon left since he had no idea what was going on (a usual state of affairs for Mr. Gill, I believe).

This last tweet from this blowhard is actually a very, very good question.

Why?

Why can a person who exhibits no rational ability to hold a conversation to me blunder about Twitter harassing people?

Keith Gill is also a troll, and has been moderated by Instagram for cyberbullying.

The Espoused Concept of “Superior Force” Requires Warning Consumers About #EmpireKred

When @trollhunterbob tweeted to Yvonne about “superior force” of all things, (sounded suspiciously like Chris Sandys) I knew that I just had to stay with this blogging about Empire Avenue.

That a company is willing to use “superior force” to try to silence legitimate content about its company is atrocious.

Of course we are talking about a company that according to Chris Voss of The Chris Voss Show, has a “goon squad.”

Shortly after this and other amazingly horrible tweets, I realized that Twitter was at best slow to do anything.

I involved the CA DoJ and San Francisco DA’s office that has jurisdiction over twitter.

This “force” and threats and doxing by Gareth Davies, et al, who are leader of EmpireKred to this day, is more than enough reason to continue to write about EmpireKred.

Trollhunterbob - Copy

Two points.

  1.  Yvonne Roga is her own person.
  2. She’s not “complicit” in anything.   No laws broken here.

Whoever was on this account (probably Chris Sandys, I think), is astonishingly abusive and should be removed from EmpireKred immediately.

It’s astounding that they continue to be openly abusive.

Right now someone is kind enough to buy me fake followers as a strange form of reputation attack.

Stay away from EmpireKred at all costs.

This is their own customer they are doing this to to try to keep abuse of customers stretching back years “off the record.”

Trollhunterbob suspended

 

That a current member of staff, Nance Larson participates rather than stop this atrocious abuse is quite sad.

You just have to wonder why no one at EmpireKred is stopping this, it seems the “goon squad” mentality that preexisted Kred’s purchase of Empire Avenue still exists.

Imagine reporting cyberbullying of other customers to the company you’re a customer of and then being bullied for over a year.

I have to disagree with Alan Blaze, I think EmpireKred/Empire Avenue has the worst customer support in the social media world.

#EmpireKred #Leadership #GarethDavies Admits to Threatening Customer #EaV #socialmedia

“Rampage” Gareth Davies, (@me_gareth) has now admitted to threatening a customer of Empire Avenue’s (now EmpireKred.)

If you are a customer of EmpireKred’s you never know when this man will show up on a “rampage” and attack you for whatever contrived reason he decides.

A tweet, an email, who knows.

Keith Gill Thanks - Copy

 

Gareth has attacked customers for years, and has been suspended by Twitter for doxing and violent threats.

Here he admits to it.  Simple question, simple answer.

 

Threatening Customers

 

Obviously the purpose of continuing to blog about EmpireKred is partially due to Gareth’s continued presence in leadership.

How can a legitimate company keep a person in leadership that admits to attacking their own customers?

It is a shame, Team leader Nance Larson.

Why would Gareth Davies threaten customers?

Just doing consumer affairs blogging here.

 

What Is The “Gareth The Cannibal On A Rampage At #EmpireKred” Hypothesis? #EaV #SocialMedia

Gareth Davies (@me_gareth) is a leader at EmpireKred.

Gareth Davies Leadership At Empire Avenue

 

Gareth Davies has an extensive history of attacking customers of EmpireKred’s (formerly Empire Avenue) with violent threats and doxing in addition to other trolling and nefarious deeds.

Gareth Davies has been suspended by Twitter for doxing and violent threats, and additionally warned yet again for violent threats to my knowledge.

Keith Gill, AKA DigitalKeith, also a leader at EmpireKred was moderated by Instagram for cyberbullying for posting this picture which depicts a cannibalistic Gareth barbecuing a human leg.

Leaders paid or were gifted (in Nance Larson’s case) to run the company starting in late March, 2014 or so.

Some were promoted over that to Team Leaders or Brand Manager/Admins.

 

 

According to Yoriko Todd they (the Todd’s) offered $100,000 for Empire Avenue while they held out for $300,000.

Yoriko believes that Empire Avenue was losing $15,000 to $20,000 a month around August of 2014.

According to Yoriko, the admins wanted to keep Empire Avenue small, about 1000 accounts.

Dups himself said this on another Empire Avenue players blog,

I’m not too worried that our audience is small, we purposefully have controlled access to Empire Avenue so that we can get all the changes in place, it’s hard to make the kind of changes we want to do while having a giant audience, once we start scaling, our opportunities to change will become limited and more challenging.

We’re getting close internally and we are now making critical hires to get us to the next level.

Their social media game game is anti-social in the extreme and that’s the way Team Leader Nance Larson and whoever the herd of people that think alike seems to want it.

Charles P. Garcia himself posted this on Paul Steinbreuck’s blog shortly after being appointed as Chairman of the Board.

Many players openly noted player retention and recruitment problems and questioned the direction of the game.

Gareth Davies modus operandi of attacks includes ostracization, violent threats and doxing customers.

How does having a person that is openly cyberbullying other players as a Leader help accomplish Charles Garcia’s goals?

I suspect it doesn’t.

Other customers of Empire Avenue openly speculated whether Empire Avenue had implemented a “Negative Growth Strategy” noting losses of active players stretching back over 18 months.

Examples of Gareth’s attacks on players:

Block and unfollow

 

Ethically and morally right

 

Gareth was largely uncaring of other players.

 

And tweeted vaguely threatening tweets.

He also carried on a 3 year vendetta against Michael Q. Todd.

For the record, What I inquired about  was why some customers were being abused and Chris Sandys made false allegations against me to try to keep that abuse “off the record.”

That attempt by Chris Sandys failed miserably, I suppose.

So what is the “Gareth The Cannibal” Hypothesis?

Gareth goes on a “rampage” attacks players and word of mouth advertising gets around and destroys Empire Avenue’s chances to be a successful business.

Who in their right mind announces their intent to cyberbully their own customer?

Gareth Davies does…  And thppptttt.  Into the toilet went Empire Avenue.

Hmm…

Gareth has for years been attacking other players of Empire Avenue.

Gareth’s very presence at Empire Avenue distorted the market in such a way that he drove off players from Empire Avenue to the point that Charles P. Garcia’s reported $500,000 investment in Empire Avenue is a complete waste if one’s goal is to run a successful, profitable business.

Empire Avenue fell procipitiously in popularity in October 2014 according to Alexa.

I have no idea why Empire Avenue ran itself as a business that would attack or allow to be attacked it’s own customers, but I’d absolutely recommend staying away from there until it’s fumigated.

Chris Voss of the Chris Voss show first stated it that I can see,

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.

 

and Admin Robby Ball confirmed it basically.

Gareth Davies has been suspended by Twitter for doxing a customer of Empire Avenue’s and violent threats.

Additionally he was warned for violent threats.

Did Gareth Davies almost singlehandedly drive away customers to the point people worried about it they’d be online when they’d log in?

Did Gareth’s antisocial ways doom Empire Avenue to selling out after burning through startup funds?

Do a review of Gareth’s timeline, and be the judge.

___________________________________________________________________________

The hypocrisy and bad faith evident in Empire Avenue (now EmpireKred) is made complete by the continued presence of abusive spammer, former Team Leader  (Now identified as “Staff” Nance Larson.

The invasion of privacy feels almost complete as Nance Larson discusses what a PI has even as Empire Avenue had zero reasonable reason to hire a PI.

Avoid EmpireKred until they clean up their leadership.

Apparently feeling beholden to no law, ethics or morals, Nance references a PI in regard to myself, a customer of Empire Avenue’s and customer of PeopleBrowsr, which owns .dotkred of which EmpireKred is owned by.

Strangely enough, by trying to lie about her position of authority on Twitter, they hope to slide by and do I don’t know what.

Empire Avenue leadership

 

Nance Larson will lie repeatedly about her and others authority in game as she seeks to be as abusive as possible in a passive aggressive and conniving stance.

She’s truly an abusive personality, and best avoided if you give EmpireKred any business at all.

You never know when the rest of the “goon squad” will pop up and take away paid for benefits unilaterally or conduct other abusive business practices that no legitimate business would ever engage in.

She’s a threat to customers of EmpireKred’s.

She has simply lied to many times to believe a word out of her mouth at this point.

Basically this is the most abusive company I have ever run into.

 

Avoid anything Nance Larson does, because she is one of the most abusive people imaginable.

 

It’s truly astonishing because Empire Avenue, at the time in Edmonton, is now in CA.

Alberta PIPA (privacy regulations) only allow businesses to do what is reasonable to meet its obligations.

I assure you that being falsely accused by a leader who denies his own leadership and others is not reasonable.

At no time did Empire Avenue support ask me for my name or identity, unlike Twitter, The CA DoJ and San Francisco DA’s office which did so.

This is par for the course for this lying, abusive Team Leader and Empire Avenue, now EmpireKred.

The “someone” is Gareth Davies, Chris Sandys and Nance Larson, who in an attempt to keep the abuse of customers “off the record” launched into a furious assault on Twitter.

To the point that I had to involve the CA DoJ and San Francisco DA’s office.

Imagine reporting cyberbullying and being bullied and accused of maliciousness for reporting the bullying.

These people are so incredibly abusive that I have no words to describe it.

 

Blogging…  Social media…

 

Try to remember there’s a framework of laws in place that we commonly refer to as western civilization…

 

Chris Sandys is a leader.  Empire Avenue support lies about a product they sold as “run by members for the members”.

 

Thanks for protecting your customers.  Oh Nance Larson didn’t.  She’s ignored doxing and threats and participated in them.

Gareth Davies tweeted his intent to bully me 2 days before Empire Avenue support once again acknowledged I’m a customer.

I cannot recommend anyone spend a dime at EmpireKred until they clean up the leadership.

They found their own customer.  Well played…

Then doxed him, and made violent and non violent threats.  And false allegations.

Suggested Reading For A Noted Scholar #eav #socialmedia

Gareth Davies (@me_gareth), noted scholar and leader of @empirekred seems a bit confused about what “hate and abuse” is.

I’d like to help clarify that if I may and suggest a reading list for his daily dose of “hate and abuse” as it’s not here on this blog.

 

I’m not scared to answer haters, so here you go:

I hope this helps Gareth as I’m concerned he has a bit of a skewed point of view.

In fact, I’d rather recommend some comic books and young adult reading as I’m not sure of his reading comprehension.

However, I shall persevere and start off with the hate groups listed on the Southern Poverty Law Center.

Just browse and find the appropriate subject matter that fits your desired dose of “hate and abuse” Gareth.

It’s not here, I assure you.

Or, just shake it off, Gareth…  It’s just free speech about a company and their leaders that I’m a customer of that abused me with violent threats and doxing.  (Hint” his name starts with a G.)

Satire

It’s sad that this man is a leader at EmpireKred, and has been attacking customers for quite awhile.

How Not To Hire An Attorney

Gareth Davies (@me_gareth), leader at EmpireKred is still ranting away on twitter about his “solicitors.”

The first hint when hiring a lawyer or a solicitor is not to hire one that uses google to check out the law, regulations and legal precedents.

Outstanding!

 

He’s been ranting about having a solicitor for over a year now.

I kind of find his words as hollow as his head seems to be.

Sorry Gareth, but I don’t reside in Garethstan.  I reside in CA.

Abuse on twitter by Gareth and other leaders of Empire Avenue was a major part of the reason that the CA DoJ opened an inquiry into Twitter.

And the San Francisco DA’s office twice opened files.

People agree to the local rules (CA) when they register with Twitter.

I reside in CA, Twitter is in CA and EmpireKred, of which Gareth is a leader and the only reason I write or know of him is now in CA.

I’m astounded he remains able to tweet on Twitter and remains in leadership at EmpireKred.

How many violent threats is to many?

I think 1 is….

This man tweeted an intent to bully his own customer.  And that’s not even what he was suspended for I don’t think.

Some Random Lies From An Abusive #Troll and #Cyberbully On Twitter.

It’s still astonishing to me that Twitter says they have a commitment to safety and privacy when Gareth Davies (@me_gareth), leader at EmpireKred cannot be blocked.

Watch out if  you use EmpireKred for anything, Gareth attacks people for as little as one tweet.

Gareth even tweets about not being blockable on Twitter, but twitter pretty much does nothing about that.

Not to say that twitter has done absolutely nothing because Gareth, a leader at EmpireKred, has been suspended by Twitter for doxing me, and violent threats.

Additionally he was warned for violent threats.

Twitter says they have rules against creating multiple false or misleading tweets, but I have never seen that enforced either.

Even in cases where the falsehoods were easily checked against public records, as in the case of Nancy Abt, one of the worst liars I have ever met.

Come to think of it, most of the worst liars I have ever met are in Nancy Abt’s “support group” of Nance Larson @nancelarson, Chris Sandys @usafa_93, and Gareth Davies @me_gareth.

I guess people of like minds congregate.

I digress.

Here’s some of Gareth’s obnoxious lies.

 

I don’t buy fake followers and I don’t attack everyone.  In fact I’ve never threatened anyone.  Gareth seems psychotic to me.

 

Since I don’t lie, and I use his image as news, commentary and satire Gareth Davies, leader at EmpireKred who abuses customers can suck a fatty.

 

A not very in depth review reviews tremendous abuse including doxing of customers.

Of course he was suspended by twitter for violent threats and warned yet again.

Gareth seems a very, very dishonest person.  Best avoided.

 

WordPress has never closed me down and he hasn’t proven anything.  Him ranting on twitter isn’t proof of anything but that he’s a very big liar.

 

I told them the day before actually.  Gareth has difficulty with timelines.   Maybe he can’t tell time?

 

I know many methods, I was just hoping twitter had a shortcut actually.

 

I’m not doing anything wrong, so again Gareth can suck a fatty.

 

Didn’t buy any fake followers.

 

I am happily warning other consumers about the remarkably abusive Gareth Davies, still in leadership at Empirekred.

Abuse by Empire Avenue (now EmpireKred) leaders on Twitter caused a CA DoJ inquiry into Twitter (x-ref 615640) and the SF DA’s office twice opened files.
