Subprime Blogger Casey Serin Returns

From Wikipedia: Casey Konstantin Serin (born September 10, 1982) is a former real estate speculator and blogger. In a newspaper article, USA Today called him the "poster child for everything that went wrong in the real estate boom".[1] Born in Tashkent, Uzbekistan, Serin immigrated to the United States in 1994. After graduating from high school, Serin bounced from job to job, generally working in website design. In his early twenties, however, Serin decided to quit working full-time in order to pursue house flipping as a means of generating income. Beginning in October 2005 and continuing through the following year, Serin purchased eight houses in four southwest U.S. states, and then began blogging about the foreclosure[2] process on the properties he was unable to resell. In time, five of the eight properties foreclosed.[3] The dubious nature of Serin’s real estate transactions, coupled with his subsequent blogging about the affair, have led to Serin’s name becoming strongly associated with the subprime mortgage crisis.

On 8/16/2009, Serin launched The goal of is to get people to pay to join a community and advertise on that community under the promise of being allowed to live on an island that Serin intends to purchase.

So in your opinion what real steps should be taken towards the long restoration road to Casey getting better?  Here are a few issues right off the bat.  No matter what you tell Casey, his automatic response every time is “Well… Im sorry you feel that way” Or “I value your opinion and will take it into consideration”  In other words, I really dont care what you have to say unless what you are saying is parallel with what I want to do.  See posting online is simple because he simply does not approve anything, but trying to talk to the guy in person is so frustrating you dont even know !

Oh and by the way, according to Casey he still does not have his money yet, therefor he has not spent it yet.
