    Gene loves to watch the paracast fourms. the post that questions is gone.
    he monitors private messages. I have little idea how a fourm is set up so Gene can do this.

    I was a little bit active on the Paracast forums back in 2007, 2008, then stayed away until probably this year. I think just about anything I've commented on this year, my comment has later been deleted. I haven't been banned but what's the point of having an account there with that level of thought policing in effect?

    Someone messaged me there awhile back asking about a comment of mine that had disappeared. I responded to him and was somewhat surprised when he never replied. The final time I checked for a reply I realized his account was gone.

    Not a healthy environment.

    He's on the forums so much that it makes it patently impossible for him to be driving for Uber/Lyft like he still wants us to believe.

    That or he is one seriously unsafe driver. I've imagined him suddenly pulling the car over, the passenger asking what's up and Gene explaining he has to quickly delete some posts and ban a user on his online forum....

    (I'm kidding Gene, relax!)

    It's an extremely tenuous claim at best. He has apparently written a few magazine articles. He probably claims his how-to books among his "journalism" and maybe he thinks as a "radio personality" he has been involved in some exposés of charlatans in the paranormal field, which is pretty rich. He worked for Moseley in some capacity, though that was probably more like "gofer in a hoax mill" by any objective standard. I know others who do not consider themselves journalists who have more skill and credibility as reporters. If he is a legitimate journalist then I am a rocket scientist.

    What about the associates of Gene who know about his behavior and ignore it because it benefits them in some way.
    Don Ecker and others on his forum.

    I checked in a while back and noticed there is no evidence that I've been banned. Obviously the asshole values the content I have posted there more than his own integrity. I couldn't log in if I wanted to but my account is still there, with all the lights on. As I recall, the greater part of my participation there involved trying to reason with nitwits, which I have given up, and the odd link to something interesting but those are probably dead by now. Man, you talk about a website that has become an empty shell!

    You should pose those questions to Ecker, Greg Bishop, Walter Bosley and the others who are “friends” of the show. See if they will give you an honest answer as to why they turn a blind eye to Steinberg’s antics.

    You have to question the rationale of Steinberg and Murphy. On one hand they state that they are trying to drum up business and add more members to The Paracast. Yet anyone posing questions they dislike, they delete those posts or worse, they ban those members.

    You aren’t going to attract many people to your website with those tactics. It’s so true. The Paracast is quieter than a graveyard these days. All the silly explanations by Murphy only make things worse.

    If he can find a way to ask them I can predict that they will either:

    1) Ignore the question.
    2) Pretend they don't know.
    3) Pretend that the stories are all exaggerations and Gene is a victim.
    4) Or like RPJ say that they are aware of the situation but owe Gene and the Paracast for their "success" and then refuse to discuss it further.
    5) Some combination of the above.

    In my head Greg Bishop just expects "UFO people" to be eccentrics and is accustomed to tolerating their ways. I'm making excuses for GB here I guess, since in Gene's case i don't know how he rationalizes that Gene seems to have done actual real damage to others, including his own family, as well as to himself.

    I don't really care what Don Ecker thinks, but might feel differently if I knew the man. There I am guessing he thinks he's helping Gene out and maybe hasn't paid attention to the details of the complaints against Gene.

    I can't even pretend to understand or explain anything at all related to Walter Bosley.

    Well gosh, this is one of three "paranormal" forums I post at. They all seem to be doing fine. UFO Casebook Forum had to move abruptly when their software went away, and they are pretty much back to where they were a year ago, near as I can tell. I know of a few others that aren't full of tumbleweeds and cobwebs (just loonies). Schorrberg and Mini Me are comically delusional.

    ok the advantage rate of a uber is $2.00 a mile. Gene takes one person 5 miles. $10 00.
    6 5 mile trips later he has $60
    most trips are more than 5 miles. a cab from my old work place to home was 13.00.
    Gene can make hundreds in 8 to 10 hours. Sorry Gene but you are NOT doing your share. 8 hours behind the wheel is enough for ONE night. Food and other small bills.
    no begging required.

    nothing makes any sense. Gene should have been able to afford the Desert marage.
    socal security check
    uber
    ads.
    the truth is clear
    1. Gene blows his cash
    or
    2. he is liar and a fraud.

    Maybe Bab's should drive if Gene cant get off his arse. Imagine her after ten cups of coffee and a whole night in front of Fox! Wide-eyed and at the wheel! The sticker on her car would be "Im Bab's and I'm Coming To Get Ya!"

    If you look up the Irish insult Gobshite,my dealings with Ecker and Bosley leads me to believe it applies to them.

    Personally I think he is guilty of both 1 and 2 not either, or.

    Maybe Bab's will have to leave Gene and move on to more stable environs.
