Weidner's kind words on our conspiratorial little baby:
Before Matt Taibbi there was GS666. For hardcore conspiracy theorists who think all of our financial woes are the result of a certain investment bank, this is the place to go. GS666 aggregates all things Goldman, drawing the wrath of the bank in a trademark-infringement lawsuit. The case was resolved and the blog now carries a prominent disclaimer. Founded in February 2009 by a Floridian entrepreneur named Mike Morgan, the site has been run since October by Larry Rubinoff, a semi-retired mortgage professional, and other volunteers after Mr. Morgan suffered a heart attack and required bypass surgery.
•The Cause: According to Mr. Rubinoff to "demonstrate how destructive (Goldman's bankers) are to our lives and the hopes and dreams of our children."
•By Nature Asks The Theological Question: Can the devil do "God's work?"
The devil can't do God's work but that's what incendiaries are for.
Speaking on behalf of the entire GoldmanSachs666 team (surely Larry doesn't mind), we're honored to be among the greats like Dealbreaker (sister site of JDA's own Going Concern), Naked Capitalism, and the Reformed Broker.
(for the full story, check out WSJ and head to Jr Deputy Accountant for the appropriate squishy response to this news. Thanks to Mike, Larry, and Robert, the other volunteers, and our loyal readers for making our important work so much fun)
