I cannot describe how predictable it is that there is always one fucking douche who thinks he's edgy by calling out the guy in control and making a huge deal out of something that nobody except him gives a shit about. Cool story, bro, now gtfo.

You did. By calling the dude it when it was unnecessary. And sorry, bitch, the "u mad" copout doesn't play with me. I'm still calling you out for being a fuck.

if you think it was because he was simply "talking about success"... you clearly have not read through this thread.

You're a true revolutionary, fucky. Let me guess, you drink fair trade coffee, smell like ganja, turds and body odor, and have a favorite tye-dye shirt? Obviously, this all puts you in the same category as Marx, Paine, and Jefferson.

Onward and upward,

Ken DeLeon



Could someone explain how the post in general, and the bolded are connected? TLS is a great resource, so thanks for creating it ken. You posted the same NYT article in an earlier thread... To be honest, it seems like you're just subtle advertising, trying to grow your personal brand - which is fine - but it just seems disingenuious to say you ONLY wrote this post because you're "thankful"


Perhaps, but I think this may be a more accurate paraphrase:

"The fact that all of you made TLS such a widely used resource gave me more confidence in my own career endeavors, and I hope that my success does the same for the many talented, bright TLS'ers who post on the site."

Also, in general, the more successful people that post on the site, the more helpful, credible it becomes as a resource. As the site becomes more widely known as a good resource, it's foreseeable that more people will use it, which will presumably increase the number of successful people on the site. It's cyclical, so Ken is not so much building his own brand as he is that of the site as a whole. Or at the very least that's the broader effect if not also the intention, though his substantial contributions lend weight to the latter.

You guys do realize that the guy would stop posting if you stopped giving him things to reply to, right?

Everyone saying i have assburgers/am a revolutionary/hipster - my mystique is obviously growing, but I am confused why... I mean people get called out for being disingenuous all the time on TLS. People get called out for using the wrong words, or for misspelling. People certainly get called out for subtle bragging - the point is WRITE WHAT YOU MEAN and MEAN WHAT YOU WRITE, don't try and hide your motivations because TLS will see through it - kens original post was bullshit. if the guy had different intentions, he should have written and titled the post differently. if it was a mistake he should have said as much, accepted the fact that what he wrote and what his stated purpose was did not match - If the user name was not KDL, none of you would react this way - you wouldn't be wearing the blinders - you more than likely would have simply agreed with what I said in the beginning, and none of this would have escalated.


Instead, you all seem to be in agreement that because the dude created this website, he should not be judged for being so arrogant. "why do bad things happen to sexy people" really? what kind of person titles their memoir like that? the same kind of person that writes the OP.

What other person at the top of their PROFESSION, acts like this? and gets on and banters (calling me fucky, really? - im anonymous guy, you are not) back and forth with forum users? Ken is supposed to be the TOP REAL ESTATE agent in the country... how can you all act like this is respectable behavior?

Ah, so that's what this is about. Someone gave you a hard time when you first came here and now you want everybody to endure your heartbreak?

And generally I think people shouldn't be judged for being arrogant when the source of their arrogance is indisputable. For example, Ken is the top agent in the country...that gives him the right to be arrogant...but usually we don't call it arrogance. Just stating facts. You've never been in a position where you are the best at anything (except maybe masturbating 7 times before rolling out of bed?) so you can't understand this. So I don't blame you for being the fuckwad most people here think you are. I chalk it up to your inability to understand due to your overall failure of life.

Oh really... Is that what you think? I think self absorbed braggarts, justified or not, should be called out. Why does America hate Lebron James but not Michael Jordan? Donald trump, but not warren buffet?
