I guess if he's putting wannabe in the name, you're probably right. Either way, ignoring is the way to go.

OK here's the corporate board of CSFB, and here is their online contact link

http://www.credit-suisse.com/en/contact/triage_1.html

Should be fun to inform CSFB what their masters of the universe are doing when they aren't defrauding foreign governments. And it shouldn't be hard to figure out the email format. I think after I get off at wal-mart I'll give it a try. Enjoy your weekend all.

Brady Dougan Chief Executive Officer of CSFB

I still like your style, but I don't want to make you angry. We wouldn't like you when you're angry. ;) Actully, you give good rants when you're angry, so I guess I have to take that back.

The funny thing is that a company like CSFB would take this crap very seriously, and given the IP address, which I saved, they could easily find this asshole and my guess is that the talking to wouldn't be nice. I call using work servers to spew shit online the mark of someone who wishes to lose quite a bit. So foolish to take such a risk for nothing. Oh well, the mark of the world we live in.

My husband works in the corporate world, and I've heard of guys getting fired for ignoring warnings about objectionable emails. Big companies take this stuff very seriously.

Yes, yes they do. And given all the personal information this troll has given out, boastfull ego-filled asshole he is, shouldn't be hard for Credit Suisse to track him down.

Making 400K a year, 400K
Losing your job because you are a shallow ego-filled troll, priceless.

FIRST DRAFT

Dear (Insert name here),

I am an active participant of an online housing bubble blog. There are regular posters to this site and generally we have a wonderful online community developing. One where people’s diverse opinions are welcome, and wanted. We tolerate all sorts of behavior, provided you contribute and are not personal in your attacks or abusive. Most people abide by this simple code. The reason I am writing you is that a Credit Suisse First Boston employee, with the IP address XXX.XX.XXX.XX has been posting rather rude, profanity filled, comments. I feel that it is a huge waist of your corporate resources not to mention a stain on CSFB's good name. Could you kindly wash their mouth out with soap and educate your employees on good manners?

Sincerely,

Surfer-X

Surfer-X, I'm never gonna be able to think of downward dog the same way again, LOL. and RE the board of CSFB, you've got great style.

Making a ton of money and still having enough time to offend, insult, and bother people online. Not to mention the quality of character issues.

My husband's company defines objectionable as lewd, profane, sexist, pornographic-- that kind of stuff. They actually are fairly tolerant as I have seen some emails that poke fun at political figures that are kind of risque. But if they warn an employee, they expect to be listened to. If not, the employee can be fired.

I also have to say, your posts are a hoot. I don't think you get enough credit.

The only TV show I would consider is something like "Tastes of the World".

That's what annoys me the most, is that the posts here are for the large part, great. And why would you want to pee in the pool here? What purpose does it serve when just about everyone's opinions are respected? I mean come on, look at the battles between ScottC/RandyH/Allah, not to mention the classic Tsusiat/Stanman battles, epic.

Aside from the fact that in cases of “investment” and vacation properties homeowners do not reside in their properties, only a small fraction of homeowners need sell to cause prices to collapse. As home values are a function of comparable sales, even if most ride out the decline, those few who do not, in many cases due to foreclosure or other forced sales, will determine prices for the entire market. It also seems the height of folly to deny that prices that have doubled in less than three years could not drop just as significantly in half the time.

This caught my attention, as well as the case for stagflation.

As Wall Street comes to grips with the realities of higher inflation, and the recessionary implications of the bursting of the real estate bubble, the stagflation scenario is gaining creditability. As all of this unfolds in the ominous month of October, a stock market crash not only seems possible, but a fitting end to Greenspan’s tenure, which may well end on the same note it rang in on. Perhaps the Chairman will not make it out of Dodge after all.

Aw, shucks. ;-) Thank you. I love your posts. Oh, wait, we'd better be careful or someone is going to accuse us of being the same person. LOL.

For the record: I'm not SactoQT, have never been to Sacramento, but would most certainly like to visit someday. I actually like hot weather.

Someone (HZ maybe) pointed out that Fed leadership changes are often correlated to stock market corrections and recessions.

Regardless, I think that the possibility for stagflation has only been rising over the past year-18 months. I don't see anything that is limiting or precluding a stagflation cycle. Let's all hope this doesn't happen. Stagflation really really really sucks, for just about everybody, RE owners or not.

I told him that you could rent a room for $500 in a million dollar home. Why would anyone pay $500 for a room in East San jose.

Very true indeed. Looks like the Plan B of many people is not that solid.

Just FYI ScottC, I'm not an academic and never have been one. I do real-world financial modeling and strategic scenario analysis, which requires that I keep up on a lot of finance and economic theory. The results of my work are heavily tested by real events, and when I'm wrong it costs very real $ (potentially lots of very real $) for the companies I advise. If I were wrong too often, I'd be looking for work. So, maybe you can love me even a little bit more; I live in the same real world you do.

It is now morning, five hours since Peter P’s above post, and still no media thread. I had the laptop set to open at about the 30th post in media thread, and all I got was a sign from Patrick’s saying “search found no thread by that title”….

Strange indeed.
