Another proud moment for Patrick Byrne



January 12, 2007 – Comments (3)

Turns out his "director of social media" is guilty as charged, and IS the guy behind the libel-factory, antisocialmedia... He's even finally admitted it, mostly, it seems, because he had no choice.


Byrne, of course, denied knowing anything about who actually ran this slimy website, fairly recently.

That's either a complete lie, or he's not paying very close attention.

Given the number of times he's plugged that website on message boards, I'm guessing he knew exactly who was running it.

The question that matters here is this: is there anyone on Overstock's board with a bit of spine?

Answer: ROFL

Dear Judd:

You are following the art of spinning in my blog my dear friend:

“When you cannot defend your actions or arguments attack the messenger to detract attention from your questionable actions.”

The focus of law enforcement is on Patrick Byrne and those acting in concert with him like you. After all, the SEC did subpoena documents from

Be careful my dear friend. Like I said, “It is not about traffic numbers” on your blog but “who is reading your blog” and “for what purpose.”

So keep it the entertainment coming. You and others acting in concert with you will be held ultimately responsible and accountable for your actions.

You had better hope that as corporate officers Mr. Byrnes’s bizarre actions in concert with you do not constitute any illegal actions.

Is that really you, Sam?

I have enjoyed reading your website and seeing how you did what you did back at Crazy Eddies.

Let's be clear with our comments, however. We don't yet know the nature of the information the SEC has requested from overstock, and a subpeoena is not an indication of guilt (or innocence).

I still think Overstock is a horrible investment, but I would be very surprised if anyone digs up evidence of any financial chicanery of the kind (let alone the magnitude) or that which transpired at Crazy Eddie's.
