The Marcus Evans Effect

Enemy-of-my-Enemy

Once upon a troubled time :: The Syndicate threatened to sue the fake robot in multiple jurisdictions {although not to my face … natch} … in order overwhelm my ability fight. I wish they would have :: because it would have made me instant famous … and my desire to fight is an infinite loop. But they didn’t … because bitches ain’t shit.

My main man Crystal L. Cox {love and light} OTOH :: had the man balls to actually sort-of-but-not-really do it … like she said here in the comments while having an obsessive spastic public break down which she was sure constituted legit service of process

Just FYI, you don’t have to give me magazines to tell my Gender. I have DDD breasts and a 10 inch Cock. So I am kind of both, a HERMAPHRODITE. a Bat Shit Crazy, Tinfoil Hat wearing HERMAPHRODITE.

… right :: her.

She sort-of-but-not-really sued me :: and much of InternetSanta’s nice list … in enough jurisdictions that counting them up for the sake of accuracy would be too tedious … let’s call it 7+ish.

So far :: I’m fucking undefeated … with Cox’s insanity-inanity complaint tossed again and again and again … without necessitating so much as a boiler plate in response. Here’s Judge Matthew F. Kennelly from the Northern District of Illinois …

Inclusion of these disparate claims against disparate defendants in a single lawsuit renders the suit legally frivolous. Cf. George v. Smith, 507 F.3d 605 (7th Cir. 2007). Among other problems, there is no plausible basis for suing most (and perhaps all) of the defamation defendants in Illinois, and the allegations that all of the defendants – who include, for example, the World Intellectual Property Organization, Forbes, the New York Times, a federal judge, an Oregon sheriff, and several lawyers and law firms – conspired with each other are fantastical and implausible.

To which Cox might argue :: “Gobbly gobbly, gibbery gibber … ex parte pluribus unuM.”

To which I would argue :: “Objection … effing ridiculous!”

Sustained.

Everything’s coming up robot!!!

In Nevada :: where the Trillion Dollar Trial of the Millennium complaint was first faux filed as a response to a suit brought against her by free speech attorney Marc Randazza … Cox has had her ass handed to her 10+ish times … and has lost her electronic filing privileges.

This from her “Motion for Misc Relief In Propria Persona” …

Defendants such as Jason Jones of SaltyDroid, and Defendant Marc Randazza make fun of this legal action and discuss that Defendant Marc Randazza is Defendant Jason Jone’s attorney in this matter, yet in a blatant disrespect of process and the courts these 2 attorneys refuse to acknowledge service in this case and address the very important issues, allegation raised against them …

Sorry for making fun of you persona non grata :: but I took an oath to uphold the Constitution … so I’m legally compelled to mock you. I know there is absolutely no logic or factual basis for that argument :: so I’m hoping it will resonate with you.

I, Plaintiff Crystal L. Cox do not want my pleadings, motions, filings to simply be dismissed and stricken after my time, money energy and rights of due process were exercised, such as my complaint answers and counter complaint in which was dismissed.

In which :: overruled! … such as.

You can read the legal ass handings on Pink Truth author Tracy Coenen’s accounting site :: Sequence Inc … one of the many other websites sort-of-but-not-really sued by puffy ferret brained ignoramus Crystal L. Cox {love and light on Knowledge and Belief}.

Which is just exactly where CoxPorn sees a conspiracy in the fractals :: says she on 7+ish of her stupid SEO spam websites …

“Judge Matthew F. Kennelly of Illinois is protecting Tracy Coenen and Jason Jones of Salty Droid. And the interests and agenda of Marc J. Randazza of Randazza Legal Group…

Marcus Evans, Inc. v. Coenen et al. Marc J. Randazza Attorney, Tracy L. Coenen Defendant accused of Defamation, Libel Slander. Looks like some pattern and history here. Oh and Tracy Coenen and Marc Randazza, hmm, I ALLEGE Civil Conspiracy.”

Wait :: wtf?

I think I get Cox’s “point” :: free speech attorney Randazza represented troublemaker Coenen in an Illinois free speech lawsuit … ipso facto … Civil Conspiracy.

Overruled.

But did I miss a longtime friend of the fake robot blog getting sued for online dissent?

Totally …

… and on my watch {and in my fucking town} and everything :: bad robot!

Crystal Cox ALLEGES a conspiracy where the court is simply a puppet of Marc Randazza and her other “enemies” {“enemies” in that they’ve disagreed with her at least once} :: but an examination of the record shows something else entirely. Tracy Coenen got pestered sued by Marcus Evans for voicing some {very mild by my standards} concern about how the company was operating :: and those posts have been removed from the web in an apparent victory for bullshit injustice … making the court a very poor puppet indeed.

The posts that Marcus Evans wanted taken down :: were submitted to the court by Marcus Evans as part of the case against Tracy Coenen … click the links to read them on my site {where they will now be archived forever}. In the first post Tracy describes a couple of cold calls she received from a Marcus Evans salesperson …

“A week later I got the same call, this time form a man at Marcus Evans, with a nearly identical script. This time, the seller was offering me this “opportunity” because someone had put down a $10,000 deposit and backed out of the event… Meaning that I could reserve a spot not for $49,500, but for the low low price of $39,500. Lucky me!”

Wow :: $40K … that sounds totes reasonable. And it’s really “cool” how this “low price” “opportunity” was made possible by someone else getting screwed out of $10K :: I have no idea what Marcus Evans is supposed to be … but I fucking hate them already.

And this from Tracy’s second post …

“Last week I wrote about a company called Marcus Evans, who got my attention by using dishonest sales tactics and scripted phone calls. That wouldn’t have been unusual or noteworthy, except when I Googled “Marcus Evans complaints,” “Marcus Evans scams,” and “Marcus Evans fraud,” I found tons of websites that were clearly set up by the company to dominate the search engine rankings for those terms.

I can’t confirm what Tracy saw when she searched for “Marcus Evans fraud” that day in 2011 :: but when I do the same search now in an incognito browser … the top five results are all Marcus Evans sites. It’s enough :: all by its lonesome … to make me highly suspicious that Marcus Evans is up to no damn good. Added to highly speech-repressive threats like this one :: and I find my fake robot self all but fucking certain …

In a further effort to resolve this matter amicably, [Marcus Evans Inc.] will agree not to file suit against you and Sequence if you will agree to the following terms:

(1) immediately cease and desist from all comments about and reference to [Marcus Evans Inc.] in your subsequent posting and other communications; and

(2) immediately delete all comments about and reference to [Marcus Evans Inc.] on your website, www.sequenceinc.com, including [Marcus Evans Inc.]’s trademark in your September 19, 2011 post.

Gosh how “amicable” :: all she needs do is surrender her most fundamental of fundamental human rights.

Marcus Evans, welcome to the Streisand Effect.

Said Tracy :: hopefully … in 2011.

The Streisand Effect :: by which any attempt to repress information ends up counter-intuitively ensuring  that the same information is passed far and wide by the Internet … is a totally fake Information Age Chupacabra. Sure :: if Barbara Streisand tries to repress someone’s speech … she’ll end up doing the opposite. But that’s because she’s rich and famous :: and that’s all our click-whore celebrity obsessed media really cares about … normal people writing about important {but not famous things} are no better off now than they ever have been.

The Marcus Evans Effect™ :: whereby companies use SEO tricks and threats of litigation to clear the web of dissenting opinions about something as NOT FUCKING PROTECTED as their commercial speech … is the norm – not the exception. The web is one of the most powerful tools ever created for the powerful to repress and bamboozle the weak and credulous. The fight for free speech on the web hasn’t even started yet … {no} thanks Julian Assange.

It’s within that sad sad environment :: where only the {at least slightly} crazed can hope to survive … that I’ve once again offered my assistance to Crystal L. Cox. I’ve proposed {after involuntarily calling her DumbDumb} that Ms. Cox focus her {not insubstantial} :: call it moxy? … against only those parties who are already engaged in a dubious attempt to manipulate the search engines … cover-up style.

To help her get started undoing The Marcus Evans Effect™ :: I’ve suggested Dan Kennedy style Internet Marketer {now with 100% more karate!} Lloyd Irvin … who would like to confuse the webz regarding his involvement in more than one deplorable rape type situation. If Ms. Cox is anything other than a totally insane fucking hypocrite :: then she’ll know just what to do … it’s never too late to join the good guys.

“Doesn’t an attempted cover-up tend to reasonably imply the presence of wrongdoing?” :: I asked this fake robot site’s kickass free speech attorney Marc Randazza regarding SEO-astroturfing …

“Fuck yes” … says he.

Which I take to mean :: “totally, yes” … no need for vulgarity.

  1. Great expose’ SD!
    I so so appreciate your timely exposure of all these fucking scammer freaks.

    Seems another scammer has caught your sights, seems ALL of your targets are Webster’s definition of a psychopath.

    They are everywhere.

    Thanks for your efforts!

  2. I think my favorite part reads:

    ” I, Plaintiff Crystal L. Cox, move this court to advise me on any “process” that I may be missing.”

    Wow, that’s asking quite a lot, isn’t it Ms.,um..Mr. er..,Hermaphrodite Cox?

    Congratulations to you, Salty Droid!

    1. @Barbara,

      In terms of plain humor, my favorite bit was:

      but I
      took an oath to uphold the
      Constitution … so I’m legally
      compelled to mock you. I know
      there is absolutely no logic or
      factual basis for that argument ::
      so I’m hoping it will resonate
      with you.

      But a little after that the whole thing gets very saltydroid.info-interesting. With Jason offering aid to Cox on the grounds that there’s an actual foe out there to fight.

      That’s cool. It probably won’t work, but it’s cool. Hey, Marcus Evans corporation: IMHO, your company is evil and you’re poopy. Go suck an egg while you and Monsanto are in time out.


      Furry cows moo and decompress.

  3. Had to do 3 double-takes to get this one which now I see is awesomely crafted and totally sad, too:

    “The Marcus Evans Effect™ :: whereby companies use SEO tricks and threats of litigation to clear the web of dissenting opinions about something as NOT FUCKING PROTECTED as their commercial speech … is the norm – not the exception. ”

    1. @Jack,

      The commercial speech notion is messy. And wouldn’t Citizens United come into play?

      Regardless of that though, from the linked wiki article on Commercial Speech there’s this:

      There are those on the Supreme Court that disagree with this “common-sense” distinction, though. Justice Clarence Thomas replied, in 44 Liquormart, Inc. v. Rhode Island (1996), that “I do not see a philosophical or historical basis for asserting that ‘commercial’ speech is of ‘lower value’ than ‘noncommercial’ speech.”

      Yeah, well the Supremes might have invented it, but unlike the very learned-and-probably-smarter-than-me Justice Thomas, I do see a philosophical basis for asserting that ‘commercial’ speech is of ‘lower value’.

      Or if Justice Thomas continues to assert that they are of equal value, then in that case I’ve got a ton of encyclopedias I’d like to peddle at his door. I’ve got oodles of Unsolicited Commercial Email that I’d like to send to him. And–oh yeah–I suppose if Commercial Speech is truly the equal of Free Speech, then I oughta totally be disregarding any and all “No Soliciting” signs.

      There. I dunno if that constitutes a strong argument or not, but I like it.

      I do not think that speech who’s primary purpose is to sell to make a profit should necessarily always be afforded the same level of protection as speech that does not have that purpose. And…

      that really IS a core philosophical principle for me. Ever since I was like 5 or 7 and my mom pointed out that the Scrubbing Bubbles(tm) bath tile cleaning commercial constituted a form of propaganda but that we must make up our own minds.


      Furry cows moo and decompress.

  4. …but the overall inspired brilliance of Crystal Cox joining forces with Salty Droid, is very funny indeed.

    I just love the idea of Mark Evans’s lawyers getting comfortable with Crystal Cox’s MO!

    “…it’s never too late to join the good guys.”

  5. Good expose of Marcus Evans here:

    http://www.ripoffreport.com/r/marcus-evans/new-york-new-york-/marcus-evans-thg-icm-marcus-evans-summits-the-hospitality-group-international-champion-597881

    …same sort of boiler room tactics used by almost all scammers featured on this site. Except they target senior executives, rather than more vulnerable individuals.

    A couple of choice extracts from the expose:

    “Many times it will be Marcus Evans CEO (yes, Chief Executive Officer) Theron Burraway who the rep will transfer the call to!”

    Be interesting to find out more about Theron Burraway. What happened to the original chap called Marcus Evans?

    and…

    “The New York office is run by a master closer / strange, shifty one-interest Egyptian character who spends all of his off time obsessively reading books on sales and sales concepts and how to trick his targets into buying things and how to manipulate his targets emotions so that they do not use logic or cost-analysis or just look at the numbers. The New York office General Manager is most likely your contact if you are a client of the NY office. He favors a small number of his favorite reps out of all of the reps in the NY office and he coaches them side by side while you are on the phone with the rep. If you receive a call from them, you are most likely being listened to by an average of 3 other managers who are telling him what the best things to say are in order to sell you on buying right then and not tomorrow.”

    Looks like they bring Boiler Room Scamming into an art form so that even C-suite executives fall for the lines.

    The principle is the same. A senior executive cannot report on the scam, because they cannot admit to being scammed, out of pride, and loss of credibility…. being put in the same boat as the elderly grand parent, or emotionally or economically vulnerable types, who are more typically the victims of scammers.

    …if only RipOffReport could join the good guys also. After all half the postings on the website are genuine, and not designed for blackmail / extortion / reputation destruction.

    1. @Random stuff, … to answer my question Theron Burraway reports to the chairman, Marcus Evans, who is still in situ.

        1. @Random stuff,

          That’s some weird shit. Theron Burraway is a name right out of science fiction. But he’s real enough:

          “Theron Burraway brings nearly twenty years of experience in the corporate hospitality industry to his position as CEO of marcus evans group. He has been with the company in some capacity since 1990 when he served as a sales manager in the marcus evans UK office. Through his leadership, marcus evans has become a $300 million worldwide leader in providing events, conferences and corporate hospitality programs around the globe. In addition to his professional work, Mr. Burraway serves on the board of directors for Waterside School, a Stamford, Conn.-based facility that provides education opportunities for low income children. “It’s a very special place,” Mr. Burraway says.
          Mr. Burraway is also a member of the Indian Harbor Yacht Club and the Tamarack Country Club.”

          1. @Barbara,

            Theron Burraway is a name right out of science fiction.

            Yeah, agreed. I was thinking that, that name has to be made up. And even now, I still feel like it’s got to be a made-up alias. Show me a birth certificate, then maybe I’ll believe it’s his Real Name. Maybe.

          2. @Barbara, Wierd, as well as criminally scammy. Burraway is visible to a degree – he has a linkedin profile as well.

            His own website has alot of bumpf – http://theronburraway.com – without any pictures of him.

            Both Burraway and Evans are very keen on keeping any images of themselves off the web.

            Curious business approach for ‘leaders’ in the corporate hospitality and events business.

            However Evans also works in the arms trade…

            http://www.telegraph.co.uk/sport/football/teams/ipswich-town/5206957/Roy-Keane-tempted-to-Ipswich-Town-by-Marcus-Evanss-Premier-League-ambitions.html

            …shady and not a savory type.

  6. Marcus Evans in Japan:

    “Marcus Evans (japan) Limited is an Active business incorporated in England & Wales on 8th September 2003. Their business activity is recorded as Other Service Activities N.e.c.. Marcus Evans (japan) Limited is run by 1 current members. and 1 company secretary. 1 shareholders own the total shares within the company. It is also part of a group.

    The latest Annual Accounts submitted to Companies House for the year up to 30/09/2011 reported ‘cash at bank’ of £281,031, ‘liabilities’ worth £1,016,542, ‘net worth’ of £-92,721 and ‘assets’ worth £920,116.”

    It reminds me of the Harry Nilsson song, one evidently is the loneliest number.

  7. This is pretty interesting and on point …

    http://nymag.com/news/features/online-reputation-management-2013-6/

    Part of me sees this brazen shamelessness as just another expression of the privilege of extreme wealth and its certainty that money will heal all wounds—$300,000 is a lot of money to blow on a failed reputation-­management strategy. But it also happens to be the amount Phin was accused of smuggling into this country.

    The persistence of these sites also makes me wonder: Are Phin and Chad the wild optimists about the Internet, or am I? I’d always assumed good information would crowd out bad online and that the arc of progress would bend toward truth. But the Metal Rabbit sites keep piling on, and the original tax-evasion stories are fading into the archives—last week, the fake and the real news items were still struggling for control of that first page of Phin’s search results.

    The rich hide their sins :: and the poor get sued … welcome to the interwebs.

    1. @SD,

      Great article. Interesting that “Xander Fields” unscrambled is “Slander Fixed”.

      I’ve spent the last half hour trying to make Theron Burraway into something, but no luck. “The Raw Burro Nay” makes no sense. “North Aruba Way E.R.” …highly doubtful.

        1. @Jack,

          Graeme Wood, author of the reputation management article that S.D. linked to figured out that anagram. From the article:

          “Pondering that X, I spelled his name with Scrabble tiles and scooted the letters around my kitchen table. The first words I came up with: SLANDER FIXED.”

          That gave me the idea to try Theron Burraway but with no luck. Although his name does contain the word “abhorrent” and the words “what are you”, not to mention “Arthur Ray”.

            1. @MazeMan,

              I didn’t know there were such things. Although I saw abhorrent as a result I can’t believe I overlooked “heartburn” and “bowhunter”. I didn’t see Arthur Ray on that list but I guess there are no proper nouns.

              But there were no results using all of the letters of his name, and isn’t that by definition a proper anagram? This is more of a word search. That being said, I’m off to run several names through that site.

  8. I’ve just discovered your site. It’s fantastic. You’re saying so many things I’ve been feeling about the way the internet is being used to suppress rather than actually promote free speech and in which, the most unscrupulous opportunism is being carried out because laws are 30 years behind the times. In this respect, Crystal Cox is a particularly grating example of this. She extols sympathy from superficial media outlets, who want to frame her as being the silenced lone ranger, when actually she’s a have-a- go mobster who will try and blackmail anyone who calls her out. She protests that her free speech is being violated when in fact, she is undertaking what in the non digital world would be considered a highly criminal act. I am keen to see how similar or different things are presently in the UK.
