Suing Paypal[edit]

Did Carreon actually go after Paypal? He filed a request for a temporary restraining order to stop Indiegogo from releasing their funds to Inman/the charities... at the very last minute to engineer a false emergency when he had two full weeks before the fundraiser even closed to raise an objection with the court. In fact, he had been personally told by Indiegogo's legal counsel that Indiegogo's terms of service stated that the money would be transferred within five business days. Carreon waited until day two of the five-day "the money is going to leave the building" window, and the day before the transfer was actually scheduled to go through.

But I don't think he actually had the cojones to try and drag Paypal into court on top of everyone else. Ochtonaprincepsnot a pokémon 09:31, 10 July 2012 (UTC)

It's on the list for brevity, I've re-worded slightly to remove any ambiguity he sued PayPal and left it at the injunction. If you're still unsure, feel free to scrub it up. Scarlet A.pnggnostic 08:43, 10 July 2012 (UTC)
Like I said on your talk page, I'll tackle that tomorrow if it's still dangling. I'll make some popcorn, too, because no way is this the last we hear of Carreon on this. Ochtonaprincepsnot a pokémon 09:31, 10 July 2012 (UTC) case[edit]

I would object to the "First Amendment champion", as there were no first amendment grounds at all in the case. The domain was stolen from the original owner by means of a fraudulent letter sent to Network Solutions. Carreon was the lawyer that won it back, so that the owner could later resell it for several million dollars. There were never any censorship issues with the case or the site.

Agreed, I think a separate section on the case would be good for some extra background info. Osaka Sun (talk) 00:29, 18 July 2012 (UTC)


I'm undecided whether we should add Carreon's politics into the mix. He and his wife are Nader's Raiders, some articles have placed heavy emphasis on it during the Oatmeal Wars, but I doubt ideology had a play in all this. Opinions? Osaka Sun (talk) 00:29, 18 July 2012 (UTC)


Can 'butthurt nutcake' be reworked slightly - to make it clearer that a 'reverse Ouroboros' is intended (ie the dragon has 'its head up its tail' - which would provide the requisite discomfort). (talk) 10:40, 27 March 2017 (UTC)
