This is a whole lot of nothing, I guess will see if the losers hiding behind screen names (AKA the ones not trying to get $$$ out of their fans, have interviews in the press and get famous) got it right. I know what I am hoping. Oh and the reason we retweet messages to you, is because since you don’t know, we like to keep you informed. Wouldn’t want you to fall behind 🙁 For someone who spends no time talking about the boards… that is a lot of time talking about the board in your VBlog… sophienettejc May 11, 2012 at 4:11 AM And BTW, I am speaking for myself here, not on behalf of the board or the amazing sleuthers there. ckellysmith May 11, 2012 at 5:56 AM For someone that spent a good 5 minutes yapping and complaining about the “boards”, obviously you do care and it’s clear it bothers you that they have the final 2. Why not give credit where it’s due? I’m sure in a week or so you’ll claim to have the final two (cough)…you went to the board and copied it. And quit acting like you don’t read the board. We all know you do. ccway May 11, 2012 at 8:10 AM I have to admit, I mostly come to this site to read the comments..they crack me up. I have gotten the feeling that he hasn’t recevied any real information in awhile, as I’ve read spoilers on other sites first, way before he posts them. Either way, I don’t hate. I love coming to read the information and comments. But, karma is a ‘B’. atlchica May 11, 2012 at 2:15 PM I’m amused by the comments here. I come here because RealitySteve condenses all of the spoilers in one place and he has credibility. I don’t have time to spend hours and hours reading the various boards out there. And when I do scour the boards, most of the “spoilers” are people speculating and hoping they get lucky on the guess. RS does his homework — and homework takes time. He’s not always going to be first, because he is relying on actual sources and double checking. But when he says it, I give it more credibility than some Joe Schmo who just cleared the cobwebs from his dartboard. AND I know I’ll get the info quickly, without having to spend hours weeding through “me too” and “first” types of posts. I also suspect that the show’s producers are feeding him some incorrect info, to try to trace his sources as part of their legal case. bigfatwoman May 11, 2012 at 7:59 PM Holy Cow….I tried to watch a few minutes of this, but the whole over-analyzation of the Nate Bakke name and — “this never happened to me before”….yeesh!! timmy May 12, 2012 at 10:50 AM Dear Sophienettejc, You hit the nail on the head: You only take responsibility for yourself. You don’t take responsibility for that message board or everyone else on it. Because NO ONE does and no one can. Steve is ONE person, with a name and a face and he takes FULL responsibility for everything he says and posts. The buck stops with him. Your message board, meanwhile, is nothing more than a ton of nameless/faceless people NOT using their real names or their real identities. There’s ZERO accountability because you guys don’t even identify yourselves. So OF COURSE you have no issue claiming you have the winner then lambasting Steve or sites like Wetpaint when they want to take their time make sure they’re right. If you’re wrong, nobody knows who you are anyway so all YOU have to do is create and another screen name and – presto! – it’s not your responsibility any more. But what do you do in the meantime? Complain – loudly – that credible sites and outlets aren’t giving you’re the proper credit for “spoiling” the winner first. All of you need take a journalism course. NO reporter or outlet in their right mind would EVER work with a source when THEY DON’T KNOW WHO THE SOURCE IS. OK? Even Deep Throat wasn’t completely anonymous. There was a small group of people who knew Deep Throat’s identity and, therefore, understood what position they were in to KNOW the information. You guys seem to think you are above that. You are not. So not only do you refuse to identify yourselves to anyone, your board also has a track record for being wrong – very, very wrong – in the past. Given both of those factors – the refusal to identify yourselves and the imperfect track record – its unfathomable to me why you think anyone should want to work with you or credit you. Compared to Steve, you’re nothing a bunch of bullies and cowards hiding behind the Internet. If you truly want credit for your “sleuthing, ” start by coming out of the closet and using your real names. THAT’S why no one is using Love ME’s info. No one knows who the hell he/she is and how on earth he/she would know anything. Steve uses his real name and his real face and has a proven track record for being right most of the time. You guys do not. And you, personally, need to relax. You didn’t do squat. It’s Love Me’s info, not yours. So stop acting like you’re a part of this. You are not. You are merely jumping on the bandwagon and acting like you have a right to be outraged when you’ve done NOTHING to obtain, verify or report the info. Why? You’ve done no work here! Zero, zilch. In your post, you say you only take responsibility for yourself, not for anyone else on your boards. SO STOP DOING IT. Stop pretending like Love Me’s reporting has ANYTHING to do with you. IT DOESN’T. You took no part in it, so you certainly have no right to complain it’s not being used! Again, your actions just show how badly you misunderstand how real reporting/crediting of sources works. Which points to yet ANOTHER problem with your boards. It’s not one person posting, it’s many – and everyone is unregulated. Last week, one of the users even posted a Wetpaint editor’s cell phone number on the site – which I noticed was quickly taken down. Do you know how dangerous that is? If the editor received harassing phone calls or had to change their number, they could sue the site for serious damages. The people who manage the site must have realized that bc the entire thread with the phone number in it was deleted. But the damage was done and, more importantly, it proves a larger point. You guys go unchecked and unregulated and some of you can’t be trusted to act responsibly. And the loose canons will ruin everything for the whole bunch. If you don’t want to use your real names, then don’t. It’s your choice. But stop bothering everyone else to acknowledge you. You can’t have it both ways. Either come forward and claim responsibility for yourselves or remain anonymous and don’t. But if you choose to remain anonymous, there’s no credible outlet in their right minds that would consider working with you. Period. Long story short, you guys are giving yourselves waaaaay too much unearned credit and importance. ANYONE can say anything when they’re hiding behind a screen name. But as long as you’re all doing so, NO ONE will ever take you seriously. You want credit? Use your real name and BACK UP YOUR CLAIMS. Until you do, you need to celebrate that Examiner mention and enjoy it because its probably one of the only ones you’re going to get. maxi May 12, 2012 at 8:27 PM @Timmy, “long story short”??? That was short? Dear God, I would hate to see the version you consider long. lucky May 12, 2012 at 9:35 PM I was a little frustrated last week when Steve hadn’t posted any new info, so I googled Bachlor/ette spoilers and came across the thread you mentioned with LoveME. I couldn’t agree with you more. After reading 39 pages of posts of ridiculous nonsense, and then after watching Steve’s v-blog, I couldn’t agree withyou more. I am not a patient person, but realize how stupid this show is and that I’d rather wait for credible info from Steve. Is he proud of himself, sure. But, he has earned that right because he does work hard at only putting out credible info. duckquack May 12, 2012 at 11:02 PM hello my friends, out of breath yet? what’s the news? bigfatwoman May 13, 2012 at 5:51 AM @Timmy~ ….you had me and then you lost me. What a long blah, blah, blah waste of typing that was! timmy May 13, 2012 at 6:06 AM You’re all very right I went on way too long. Apologies! But it’s beyond tired that all these people like sophienettejc claim to be part of a “positive” message board then do nothing but tweet and harass Steve and others obnoxious, snotty messages. If they were really the super fans of the shows like they claim, they’d stick to their boards and just ignore Steve and this site entirely. But they’re not. They’re jealous, nasty, bullying, overly-aggressive and attention-starved. But you’re right. It was too long-winded. Again, apologies. Happy Mother’s Day, everyone! JovisMom May 13, 2012 at 1:25 PM @ Timmy – you rock!!! Hope you have a great Mothers Day!!! Besos!
