Want to Spit Coffee on your Monitor and Beat Your Head Against the Wall? Follow Casey Serin

I blogged about Casey Serin last year when he launched one of his comebacks. Now he's back again. You can read my previous post or any of the 700+ articles at Caseypedia for most of the details rather than me creating a massive link-laden post.

In March of '07, I read an article called "The World's Most Hated Blogger". It got me into a train wreck watching phase that I can't break out of. Casey is about the weirdest Internet denizen I've ever seen. He's alternately open and totally evasive at the same time. I can't figure out if he's lazy, stupid, manic depressive, bi-polar, NPD (narcissistic personality disorder), sociopathic, or just completely brainwashed by Real Estate Guru and MLM (Multi-Level Marketing) and motivational material. All I know is that waiting to see what he'll do or say next for many becomes an obsession. I am no exception.

One commentor on his now-defuct "True Casey" blog (formerly at http://www.truecasey.com ) accused Casey of have a "cargo-cult" mentality over entreprenuership. He seems obsessed with being an Internet marketer, Real Estate Investor, and of course holder of "sweet passive income", but like the cargo cults all he seems to do is shuffle papers around and talk.

If you're looking for a source of free amusement, follow his new blog, Blogger Casey. Don't try to offer him advice though, even if he asks. Casey never follows advice. It only gets you frustrated. It's much more fun to watch other people get angry at Casey for not taking their advice, especially if that advice is tempered by decades in the industry or field from which he's asking for advice.

Also, if you're going to follow Casey, don't correct any spelling thereby revealing yourself as a n00b. Some people have been following Casey since September of 2006 when his I Am Facing Foreclosure blog went live, and some of his famous misspellings have become legend and have entered into the lexicon of those who find themselves both frustrated and amused by Casey. Don't correct words like "looser" and "advise" (especially when used in the context for which "advice" would be correct). Those who use them know what they're doing.
