    This is a hard post to write. But in light of events of the last few months I feel I must. I have been on the paracast forums for sometime now. For 10 years Gene has Begged for money. Let that sink in. 10 years. He has a job at the paracast. Drives for uber. Yet he begs,and begs. For food. Gorcerys rent. You know simple basic stuff. As of late its gotten extremely bad. He clams hacks he claims phishing he claims his bank account was hacked and drained. The claims are coming fast and furious. Since march:

    Back account hacked and drained.

    Evicted

    weeks stay at motel 6

    move in

    server set up.

    Bank hacked again!

    This speaks volumes.

    2. WTF? I've NEVER been "in bed" w/ him. I really resent the implication. I have been woefully underpaid co-host of a popular podcast and more of a victim of Gene's poverty-consciousness than any of you. I really don't appreciate you equating my involvement w/ the show as in any way, shape, or form condoning his panhandling. I should be the one getting thanked and supported, not chastised and have my integrity called into question. In answer to your question, I am no longer co-hosting the show as I have placed my self on indefinite hiatus. Good enough for you? You people really need to get lives... your ugly fascination w/ Steinberg is becoming pathetic. You've made your point, you've tried to ruin him in every way possible, you've slimed me w/ your insinuations and innuendos. You should just let it go already. Why don't you use this same venom and energy to out the real charlatans, hoaxers and liars in the field? Why not go after SDMorton, Wilcock, Goode, Basagio, Eisenhower, Burich, Dames, Weber, Salla, et., al, with the same venom and gusto you're pursuing an old man that can't face up to the fact that he's living beyond his means and has a wife that obviously has him by the short hairs. What is it w/ you guys? WTF already?
    Advertisers are bailing calls are made to GCN to alert them!

    All this because one of two statements are true.

    1.gene is living beyond his means. And gene refuses to get a well paying Job.

    2.Gene is lying and committing fraud. What is the truth?

    Gene is destroying his own radio show! His persistence in begging for money has reached new lows.

    I close by showing all his latest letter

    now how he preys on his readers.

    Hi,

    I hesitated to send another letter about my personal situation to you because I wanted to devote a different newsletter to that subject.

    This one is supposed to be about The Paracast.

    However, the pack of haters that has been stalking me for several years has stepped up their campaign to include attempts to destroy my shows.

    Very recently, they began to urge people to call and make complaints to the network that carries The Paracast and The Tech Night Owl LIVE.

    The network is aware of what’s going on. They are accustomed to such mischief since they carry several controversial shows.

    This is just the latest offensive act from this pack of schoolyard bullies.

    Over a period of several years, they have waged online campaigns urging people not to appear on these shows, not to donate to me and not to advertise on these shows. Add to that ongoing criminal acts from hackers that compromised my Twitter account and two bank accounts, despite the fact that I take precautions recommended by security expects.

    One of the ride hailing services I work for received a bogus complaint about my driving performance, and one of the haters evidently lives in this area. I am not assuming a connection — at least not yet!

    What makes this all so troubling is that most of these people don’t even know me; they are total strangers. A very few disagreed with me about a controversial UFO abduction episode some years back, but that's a strange reason to start a hate campaign.

    In the meantime, I am fighting to stay afloat.

    If you know someone who can provide some legal advice, I’d really appreciate it.

    But it’s really difficult out there. A recent report from the Federal Reserve Board concluded that four in 10 Americans cannot cover an emergency expense of as little as $400 without selling something or getting a loan.

    I've done a lot of research into this since I first heard about it and it's truly sickening what Gene is doing to his members...NO ONE on his forum should be in a position to put food in his mouth and help pay his basic and personal bills, especially after this has been ongoing for up to 10 years...He is a grown man and playing the innocent victim, some of the stories sound made-up sorry to say...

    Irregardless, you never put members of a forum through that kind of nonsense and over a period of years...People don't come to forums to deal with that sort of crap...I mean even how he says everything, the choice of words, he is playing the victim at every turn and I question many of these alleged incidents he claims, again sorry to say...

    At any event, you don't put members of a forum through that sort of drama and bs...That will never happen here and anyone from Paracast is welcome to come here, some people are members of more than one forum anyway and if the lights go off abruptly at Paracast we will be here and always be here, anyone from Paracast is most welcome here...

    Here's another source stating the same thing about Gene...On the link they show a Lon long list of begging for years from his members...

    Gene Steinberg Personal 'Emergency' Cash Solicitations Span Years, Hundreds of Emails

    Gene Steinberg solicited cash donations from an e-list hundreds of times since 2014 and earlier, including 139 emails during 2017, for circumstances framed as financial emergencies. Screenshots of subject lines of many of the emails are posted below. A list of the 2017 emails by subject line and date is provided at the end of this post.

    The dozens of 2017 messages continued what has become an ongoing story of financial destitution narrated for years by the host of The Paracast. The money, according to Steinberg's emails, was needed for such personal expenses as rent, utilities, and groceries, often described as crises and nightmares. The emails contained a PayPal link and instructions for sending funds, as has been the case in years past.

    He claimed his bank account was hacked drained in March.
    Then in May he was hacked and drained again!
    How?

    Problem is he is naming ppl now blaming others by name. This opens him up to many lawsuits. He has no proof.

    Well that's someone who's losing it and blaming others and whom isn't thinking clearly, but then there's the history which is indicative of fractured thinking; my point of the shark attacking a rubber boat is more in tune with the insatiable hunger which cannot ever be filled; so insatiable I'll eat my way through a rubber raft to get to you.

    We need to advise those people there is a safe haven so that they don't end up like we did with some jackass pulling the plug on everyone without any warning: I'm told they have thousands of active members, whereas AH only had a few hundred active members.
