About this site

Hated blogger leaves U.S., threatens lawsuits

I admit I was hoping this was going to be about someone else, but in retrospect, this story is insane:
A failed real estate speculator who created a popular Web site touting his exploits has begun threatening to sue his critics and claims to be in hiding in Australia.

Casey Serin, arguably the world's most-hated blogger, rocketed to Internet stardom after disclosing his pending foreclosures, marital strife and unwillingness to find a job. But the 24-year-old's online fame was hardly flattering: it arose from legions of readers who call themselves "haterz" and frequent his blog to ridicule his financial missteps and urge Serin to pay back up to $420,000 he is said to owe creditors.
