Anyone who posts as an ANON is a wimp

It's so easy to click "other" then type in any name you'd like. You don't have to register, just call yourself something. You can be ANON, just call yourself something....

I allow ANONs, because I think it's important for REIC whistleblowers to be able to have their say without being tracked down by the NAR, but at least make up a user name. MickeyMouse2 is fine. Ilovedavidlereah is cool.

ANON is for wimps. Imhavingdavidlereahslovechild23 is funny, and then we can converse


(UPDATE - THIS THREAD ALSO IS A CONTEST FOR THE FUNNIEST / MOST CREATIVE NAME. I'M THE FINAL JUDGE. WINNER WINS A PACKAGE OF CHICKEN FLAVORED RAMEN - YUMMY!)

Personally, I find it hilarious that posters with a made up handle would ridicule those that choose anon.

Delinquencies up

April 10: CNBC's Steve Liesman reports on new data that show U.S. mortgage delinquencies have hit a new high.

Kerrie Russo kept her New Jersey house but learned a costly lesson after signing up for a 'negative amortization' loan that she says she did not fully understand.

Keith, it really does'nt matter anymore. The blog has sunk below "Ben's boring blog" status. The unrelenting moderation of any contradictory point of view resembles something you would have seen in a Soviet republic.

Look I have a Name said...

Happy Now?

Had Enough? Am I the only guy in this country who's fed up with what's happening? Where the hell is our outrage? We should be screaming bloody murder. We've got a gang of clueless bozos steering our ship of state right over a cliff...

Screw ANONs they are the plight of this blog.

I mean c'mon, Anonymous is like the most famous person in the world. Look how many things Anonymous has built, wrote, and said. Who is as famous and cool a Anonymous? You should be flattered that Anonymous posts at your blog so often.

I have a rash said...

Ok, keith, U got it

fine. I'll post as anonomomo said...

Is this any better, mr. long nose?

Anonymous said...

As long as we have a pea-brained moderator like yourself why should we freaking post as anyone. Too many comments deleted. I wrote them myself. Keith, you're such a freaking moron.

buzz kill said...

The anons post as anons because it bothers you Keith. Don't let the anons get you down.

TheSoreThatWontGoAway said...

Keith,
The problem is that I am er.. was.. a Realtroll and since thinking of a name requires extra energy it just goes against my natural sloth.
If you had a contest with a prize for most creative name I'd get excited and participate. The prize should be something like a free wash and wax for the Jag down at the Elite car wash, or maybe a gift certificate to the day spa.
Since I don't have much to do these days I'll think up something but it's just not the same without a prize.

A name in a message makes it easier to respond to particular posts. This blog doesn't always have reasoned discourse, but at least with some kind of name it's possible to refer to specific messages when responding.

The ARM resets are stressing the pocketbooks of many borrowers. Subprime lenders are failing when borrowers default. There will be many more vitriolic rants and general expressions of unhappiness expressed on this blog and others before this is all over.

A nun said...

I resent that.

Anonymous said...

I'm an anonymous because I do marketing for a mortgage bank, OK? Sure I rent so I guess that makes me some sort of whore ... not a wimp, at least I can feed myself. Shaving not looking in the mirror is a drag by the way.

Frank said...

AGREED!! I hate the anon's, especially since they're usually a bunch of realtwhores, mortgage peddlers, or desperate homedebtors.

Should we change their name to Desperate Bankupters now that it's 2007? LOL

Whatever, dude...

After posting an entry, it's not "the name" that you are interested in, but the opinion. Think of the 'anon' as the 'generic citizen of the world', it's the most democratic way for people to respond without 'exposing' themselves for whatever reason. When I read the responses, I rarely pay any attention to the name.

honica jewinski said...

Why no mention of the criminal mestizo invaders anymore. Hell, even the mainstream media is starting to talk. I flipped over to the foxjews channel the other night and I swear to God Bill Orielly said criminal illegal aliens. He also had a guest on that said criminal mexican invaders kill more Americans each and every year than were killed on 9/11! WTF? They are stealing my thunder! I've been saying this for YEARS!

Never really liked my given name but here goes!!!

AM Fence Sitter said...

Keith,
It is easy to type in a name… On another note: Just go and check the Pre-Foreclosures that have cropped in recently on Realty Trac and Foreclosure.com.. I am right there with the biggest of housing bears but I am truly astounded by the magnitude of this meltdown.

Just go type in zip codes from FL, AZ, CA, NV etc. etc. Big towns, small towns, rural urban every freaking where!. It’s not just the volume that’s ever growing but the fact that there are so many owners of multiple homes in the same or neighboring zip. Lots of Casey’s out there.

honica jewinski said...

Keith,
I just want to apologize for all the bad things I’ve posted on this site.
I am very sorry.
I hope your readers will forgive me.
Again I am soo sorry if I’ve offended anyone.

How can people talk on this blog anyway when you're always gone gallivanting around smelly old Europe and only update comments thrice a fortnight?

My day is made by finding out there is a web site called scottsdale-sucks. Bee-yoo-tee-full.

My ex-landlord (lives in Scottsdale) is trying to live like a millionaire, but he doesn't have two nickels to rub together.

He is a royally F'd Buyer. More royally than he knows.

keith said...

Aw come on I update all the time

Moderation was forced on the blog - the REIC put HP under attack (especially one foul-mouthed ass from Phoenix). Plus we were getting spammed left and right. I hate it, but reality in today's world

User names will help - keeps it organized and you can still chat although it's not in real time like the good old days

And HP rules: don't post full articles, don't swear, no racism or sexism, and don't threadjack

Other than that, anarchy is appreciated

Ok, I've selected this handle just for the contest. I will revert to anon just to piss off Richard, and enjoy every moment of it.

Nobody's going to win any chicken ramen. We had a "housing crash song" contest and no winner was ever announced from that. Boo hoo hoo.

If I made up a moniker it would be "lereah and greenspan sitting in a tree". Frickin' housing whores.

mcstinker said...

Why don't you appoint a couple people to monitor the site...they can delete or approve comments.

Then it would run faster.

honica takes it in the bum said...

Is this name appropriate or do you think it is too offensive?

Phoenix is for losers said...

Keith,
Any more war stories from ground central Phoenix?

unrealtor(tm) said...

Not sure if I just made that name up or if I remembered it from someone else. If there is someone else who normally uses this name, I apologize, I am not him/her.

The point of using a name, any name, is so that others can respond to your posts. So we can have like a multi-party, asynchronous conversation.

This is important even if you only make one post. Sure, if you say something stupid people will make fun of you but noone actually knows who you are so who cares.

If you post as anon it shows that you don't understand this important point. And for this you should be ridiculed.

Anonymous said...

Stay on point Keith. This post is just "fluff" and there is way too much $h!t hitting the fan regarding to waste blog sphere space with it.

Make it happen or shut this down so we can all go to a blog that stays on point and to which we can share info regarding the bubble, e.g.:

I never knew how to post another way. I just signed up for a goggle account and now I will no longer post ANON. By the way all my ANON post you allowed so I do not know what those people are talking about.

Casey Serin's Conscience said...

I would say that posting as anon is more lazy than wimpy. However, it does make a comments thread confusing and awkward to follow. So, really, it's just rude.

I would counsel Casey against doing it, but he hasn't listened to me for years.

Sub-prime crisis could spread to other markets, IMF warns

By Jane Padgham

Published: 11 April 2007
The International Monetary Fund sent shudders through financial markets yesterday, warning that America's sub-prime mortgage crisis could deepen and spread to other markets.

In its biannual Global Financial Stability Report, the Washington-based lender identified the sub-prime market, which specialises in lending to borrowers with patchy credit records, as one of the main threats to an otherwise sturdy financial outlook. Other risks included debt-laden private-equity buyouts, risky capital inflows to emerging markets and persistent global economic imbalances.

"The deterioration in the US sub-prime market has been more rapid than expected at this point in the cycle, and the fallout... could yet spread to other market segments," the report said. In particular, the IMF said the looser credit standards may have gone beyond the sub-prime sector into portions of the so-called "Alt-A" mortgages, the next riskiest area. And there could be losses in other consumer credit markets, including credit card and sub-prime auto loans, held by a variety of global investors, it said.

I saw an old poor man pounding in a "For Sale By Owner" sign today in his front yard near Muskegon, Michigan. Despite the great american depression part II, I smiled today when I read an article about Bush and Cheney being impeached and investigated for fraud and corruption charges.

Nah, you block anons and there will be too few posting to justify the existence of this blog. Just try. Indeed, you'll get Honica and Short Dick spitting hatred nonstop, what a company.

For the most part Keith, you let most post through, but I think an update in the morning and afternoon would be good - I look forward to your pics and commentary they make me laugh. BTW you are not over the edge or over the top at all. Other just don't want to hear the truth.
