I have to say, as a trained investigator myself, that the writers behind the Not Another Dime (For Ken Whitman)
blog are doing some amazing digging. The great thing about the internet is that it is much like the proverbial elephant - "it never forgets."
Looking for a timeline of Ken's projects with paydays and updates mapped out? It's all there.
Wants some behind the scenes info of Ken's Rapid POD
fiasco? There's some tantalizing nuggets.
How about projects that Ken was the mover and shaker behind the scenes, took his share of the cash and never did the work he was paid for? Yep, it's there.
Ken has set the high water mark for how low one can go in abusing Kickstarter and Not Another Dime
is doing an excellent job in highlighting Ken's misdeeds.
I do like the way NAD(FKW)
presents facts and postings it's discovered on the net. Although the goal is obvious - to keep Ken from continually screwing others, the excellent support material makes it difficult to dispute the facts that are presented.
So, put aside 30 minutes or so and read a good investigative site on the Ken Whitman drama. It will be time well spent, and knowledge is power.
Fool me once shame on me, fool me twice shame on you. Fool me for years, you must be Ken Whitman.ReplyDelete

Much of Ken Whitman's perennial ability to continue scamming money out of gamers and finding new industry vets to coat tail ride after each prior project crash has stemmed from a very old-fashioned combination of bullshit artistry and unflagging distortion of his rep and actual achievements. He only recovered from the last big go around c.2006 because we didn't have social media at that time and all the spotlights thrown on his predatory business practices happened in gamer forums and boards. Welcome to 2015, Ken. Enjoy the many fruits of your *cough* labors.
So why aren't people simply reversing the charges on there credit cards to get their money back? It's pretty easy.ReplyDelete
Scam artist or not, he released Tony Lee's Extreme Vengeance RPG in '97 and for that I will be forever grateful !ReplyDelete
