PSA: Website currently down due to Spammers

You might have noticed that my website is currently down with a "500 error". This is due to moronic spammers hitting my contact form dozens of times per second, which made my host hit the kill switch. I hope that my site will be back online within the next couple days, and I'm sorry for any inconvenience this may cause.

EDIT: This problem is now fixed.

Guest Post: Beckster and Chris Adams Bootcamp Review

When it rains, it pours, it seems. Shorty after getting an email on Roosh, 'shizzle' sent me a review of a bootcamp he attended some years ago. While one might ask why it took that person years to come forward with his story, it's nonetheless laudable since many victims of PUA gurus, after having gotten scammed of sometimes thousands of dollars, rather don't talk about this at all, due to shame. In fact, the combined voices of many scammed men eventually led to the success of the now defunct forum PUA Hate. As far as the PUA industry is concerned, it apparently is no longer the case that there's a sucker born every minute.

Guest Post: Roosh spends $6,500 per Lay

It's been a while since I spent time writing on alleged pickup gurus, and I don't think I'm going to spill any more ink on that topic. However, I recently received an email by a disgruntled follower of Roosh who did some back-of-the-envelope calculations and questioned what that guy actually writes. This reminded me of when I pointed out that "Style" was teaching game before he was even getting laid using Mystery Method and when some morons asked me for a source, I told them that it he says so himself in his book. Anyway, here is Exposer with a note on Roosh.

 Pick-up Guru Roosh Seduces Five Women Per Year

When Roosh wrote his self-proclaimed "game bible" Bang, he made $60,000 per year, which is a good salary for a 27-year-old biologist. After taxes, he's got around $45,000 left. After saving $13,000 to travel, he spent $32,000. He calculated his "True Cost Per Notch" as $6,500.  That means he slept with only five women that year. If that sounds unimpressive, realize that Bang concludes "an average player ... will get 3-8 notches in a year" and "will score a one-night stand once in a blue moon." By his own reckoning, Roosh was pretty average.
