Kimmer Plays it Cool

3 10 2007

This morning, after KTLA’s segment last night, featuring Kimkins as an ‘internet scam’, Kimmer (Heidi Diaz) is downplaying the significance of the broadcast and remains calm and cool to members.

With no remorse or explanation about the broadcast, Kimmer is posting away in an attempt to quiet any questioning, and banning members who dare speak up.

On the thread ‘Ask Kimmer’ a member wrote:

Just want to publicly throw in my two cents about all the controversy swirling around us. I know you would get a lot of flack if you did this, Kimmer, but–I wouldn’t care a bit if you took out all the negative stuff. I think the time for reaction to and self-_expression_ regarding all the people leaving, the lawsuit, etc. needs to have run its course. Those of us who are trying to focus on the program keep running into all that “stuff” on just about every thread we turn to. Enough is enough!

Kimmer replied:

I know. We’re doing our best to keep it off the site. People who enjoy reading it can find it at 1,001 other places. Meanwhile, stay focused, do your work, let your body show you what it can do!

On another thread, Kimmer wrote:

Maybe I can shed some light?

The point of this website — the entire reason it exists — is to help people lose weight. When there’s interference with that intent, we take action. Whether that is banning troublemakers or removing elements that distract from our purpose, we do it.

Personally I don’t like negativity on this site. I’ve said it a thousand times and I still mean it. If anyone is unhappy or disillusioned, there are a ton of other websites to vent your feelings. Or, start an anti-Kimmer blog like the “popular kids”. Sorry, bad humor. Everyone is 100% to their opinion. Absolutely. Just take the negative opinions elsewhere.

Or, you could just lose weight?

Those of you who have been members since the website started have seen regular changes to the front page. I think we are on #5 “facelift”? Our graphic guys get bored and every few months they get an urge to make changes. Unfortunately, this change was stopped midway. The brother of our lead graphic person is having open heart surgery and the balance of the design changes have been postponed a few days.

They’ve got ideas for another front page change a few months from now. It’s the nature of the beast.

And on yet another thread, inquiring about the removal of success stories from the site, Kimmer wrote:

I’m right here!

We are renovating the front page. We needed more space on the top menu bar so some elements were removed. Success stories are still there in photo form on the right side and expanded to show 5 at a time. We’ll be adding 3 new success stories this week!

The naysayers would love for me to chat on … so I won’t. We’ve got some new support resources for members coming up, too! Keep an eye out!

Keep Digging Tippytoes, Keep Digging

28 09 2007

Tippytoes (Jeannie Baitinger) continues to enlighten Kimkins members about her theory on Ducky, theTRUTH and why Low Carb Friends is unAmerican too!

SUBJECT: Re:Question for Tippy

Tippytoes wrote:

Well, Netrition does allow it’s BB to be used to help destroy our home here. They allow members to speak freely and very unkindly, make fun of and threaten people who follow Kimkins. They even allow this hostility towards their own members who follow Kimkins. They are aware their chat admins are Ducky and The Truth and they are aware of the slander being written and promoted. They have made no efforts to discourage this behavior and in fact appear to be in favor of promoting it. They allow their members to make fun of overweight people yet they call themselves a diet support site. They still keep all Kimkins threads available for use. The “we can do what we want and you better not question it” is unreasonable and unAmerican at best. If you want to do business with this company you certainly may and you have every right to do so. But I want the truth known so others can make their own choices too.

*****

It’s clear Tippytoes has now entered into the realm of what can only be considered libel against Low Carb Friends and their admins; in addition she’s now fully within the boundaries of a lawsuit should Low Carb Friends or those admins she’s accusing decide to take the next step.

Oh, and Tippytoes, slander isn’t written, it’s verbal.





SingingLass Kissing Ass Again!

Yes, there is still more to report today. Hard to believe, isn’t it?

Over at theTRUTH, we learn of more admin private messages that discuss the bannings, paypal refund requests and more.

Hi, looks like scoble banned her ownself in her departure….her public reason for leaving was a bit snarky, so I changed it to ” Voluntary” to simplify it….thought I would let you know on the chance you would like it to read tos violation instead.

I keep checking in, things have been pretty quiet on the boards the last 24 hours it seems….but that could be a good thing too.

Oh, you most likely already know, but just in case you do not …heads up. Ducky is sending people instructions now on attacking through Paypal.

Kimmer wrote:

You are really on your toes! Paypal automatically denies any claim more than 12 weeks old. We saw 12 auto-declines and couldnt’ figure out why. Now I know!

Hopefully things will quiet down at least for the members. Some get really upset by the hoopla.
Thanks for being here!

It clear the person scrambling around online isn’t Kimmer (Heidi Diaz), it’s SingingLass.

We know Kimmer lacks any moral compass from all we’ve read, seen and heard.

But

We wonder, how morally bankrupt one must be to not only be one of Kimmer’s minions, up day and night running around online trying to find something to report back with, but never question what you’re out here reading day in day out?

And, by the way, how can SingingLass not understand her weight loss isn’t going anywhere lately because she’s sitting on her ass all day long doing nothing but kissing Kimmer’s ass?
