If you were reading along in Gary Weiss' blog, you'd have seen where Bagley, not identifying himself, tries to smear a reporter on a porno message board. One alias doing this is enough, but it does raise the other serious issue of how much more widespread this might be.

On Yahoo today Judd pipped in and said that that wasnt him. At least I think it was Judd who said that.

Mr. Patch:

Lee, any commentary on Floyd using multiple aliases on Yahoo at the same time to create the appearance of a larger opinion than exists?

No, I do not have any commentary on the allegation regarding Floyd Schneider using multiple aliases, which you seem rather eager to pass off as damning proven fact.

Floyd has not denied doing so.

If I had any pressing concern about the absence of a denial, I would simply give Mr. Schneider a call and ask for an explanation.

Mr. Patch:

Sure Lee, just take a look at all the lies and misdirections he claimed regarding the Global Links fails to deliver problem.

No, I am not going to spend time searching.

You have repeatedly claimed that Floyd Schneider engages in misdirections, lies and false innuendo. As far as I am concerned, the onus is on you to provide the support for your claims, not wave vaguely in the direction of a Global Links discussion or some tiff about your brokerage account.

Good grief.

A Dave Patch dare is of no significance to me, but thanks for the links. Mr. Patch sent me an e-mail with some additional information.

I had a quick look at Global Links early on, but I think I was following some other company or companies at the time and never did pursue the matter. Perhaps I will take another look at some point.

At the moment, I am more interested in the apparent Overstock-related attack campaign against Floyd Schneider and Gary Weiss, which has now expanded to include Mr. Weiss's wife.

This Judd Bagley character looks like quite a piece of work.

Lee, apparently you were on planet mars when Weiss began the attacks as is illustrated in 90% of his blogs.

Based on your responses, I would guess that you are most likely unqualified to understand the Global Links data I sent you so don't bother.

As for floyd, funny how he touts himself and yet according to past and present SEC attorney's, he was/is a nuisance despite what he himself believes. Purge apparently was a good description of his work.

Oh, and when you dig through those Global Links messages that Jeff submitted for your perusal, please take note that links are either unrelated to the event or unsupported innuendo.

Don't bother responding I can see your desire to angle and the skew you have. I am more interested in the apparent Overstock-related attack campaign against Floyd Schneider and Gary Weiss and yet ironically Floyd and Weiss' repeated public attacks passed by your vision these past 18 months. LMAO

More 'Strategic Messaging' From Judd Bagley

An Internet sleuth has tracked down's Judd Bagley early foray into "strategic messaging" -- skills that he has since put at the disposal of his money-losing employers.

Follow the links here, if you have a strong stomach, to see Bagley digging for dirt on a Florida investigative reporter who had written negative stories about his then-boss, Cynthia Henderson, who was the controversial (to put it mildly) head of Florida's Department of Business and Professional Affairs.

Here's an Internet post from 2000 that, as you can see from the links, have been traced directly to Bagley:

"The word in Tallahassee is that the Tampa Tribune fired M--- P---...the reporter whose writing has provided them with the lion's share of their editorial fodder.

They say it happened because she physically struck J--- W---, her bureau chief."

Mind you, this smear was being spread after this reporter had already been fired and was no longer a danger to Bagley's employer.

Some months before this happened, Bagley went to an Internet newsgroup to heap abuse on this reporter. Then an anonymous email address engaged in an Internet smear campaign against this same reporter. A coincidence, I presume.

The mentality at work in this unrestrained smearing can be found in a Bagley Internet post in 2002, in which Bagley says that libel "only applies to reporters." An amazingly ignorant, and telling, comment. And then there's this one, in which he shared his homicidal fantasies concerning a hedge fund manager who fell afoul of Patrick Byrne.

I'd say Overstock shareholders are getting their money's worth in the "strategic messaging" department. Too bad Overstock can't devote the same energy to turning a profit.

UPDATE: Bagley later materialized on a Yahoo message board and, with characteristic malice, slimed that same reporter again. In the best "strategic messaging" tradition, he left out some minor details -- that the reporting was fair and accurate, and that the Florida pol in question was reassigned under fire and was later the subject of an unflattering Vanity Fair article.

Former Hedge-Fund Manager
To Pay $110,000
January 5, 2007

WASHINGTON -- A former New York hedge-fund manager will pay $110,000 to settle charges of fraudulent trading in three so-called PIPE deals, private investments in public equity.

Joseph Spiegel, a former manager for New York-based Spinner Asset Management LLC, settled with the Securities and Exchange Commission without admitting or denying the SEC's allegations. In addition to paying a fine, Mr. Spiegel, 35 years old, agreed to a three-year ban on working in the investment-advisory business.

Spinner advised the Spinner Global Technology Fund, which reached its own settlement with the SEC last year regarding the PIPE deals with Tripath Technology Inc., Hypercom Corp. and Novatel Wireless Inc. The SEC said after the hedge fund agreed to invest in three PIPE deals, Mr. Spiegel sold those stocks short using "naked" short sales in Canada, and covered the short positions with shares obtained through the PIPE offering. Short selling involves sales of borrowed stock in hopes they can be replaced with cheaper shares. So-called naked short sellers don't borrow shares before selling.

The SEC said Mr. Spiegel should have known that it was illegal to cover Spinner's short position with shares it obtained from the PIPE offering. While short selling is legal, the hedge fund had promised the PIPE issuers that it wouldn't sell or transfer shares it received. Mr. Spiegel's attorney, Niki Warin, declined to comment on the matter.
