Comments on: “Larry Bergman”, Overstock’s sock-puppet http://blogs.reuters.com/felix-salmon/2009/12/12/larry-bergman-overstocks-sock-puppet/ A slice of lime in the soda Sun, 26 Oct 2014 19:05:02 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.2.5 By: d_duder http://blogs.reuters.com/felix-salmon/2009/12/12/larry-bergman-overstocks-sock-puppet/comment-page-1/#comment-10055 Tue, 15 Dec 2009 03:27:15 +0000 http://blogs.reuters.com/felix-salmon/2009/12/12/larry-bergman-overstocks-sock-puppet/#comment-10055 It seems a lot of people in the mass media are blindly following the Gary Weiss version of the story without fully understanding what transpired. Gary Weiss just rants repeatedly about how Patrick Byrne “crazy” but everything that I’ve heard and read from the guy seems to make sense and there is a lot of evidence to support him. Gary Weiss on the other hand clearly has a history of trying to push his agenda in the media, on Wikipedia, and with industry insiders. Historically, the bulk of evidence I’ve been able to find on Mr Weiss is that he clearly lives in his own fantasy world where personal attacks instead of facts rule.

Con men need labor saving devices too.

Specifics please. How is he crazy? Is it just his relentless railing against naked short selling? Does he hear voices? What?
