    Thanks for posting that article Lynnie D. This whole CDAN thing has me questioning some things. The latest blinds esp. The Secret Keeper seems to ring true to me. I have long suspected Sandra B as being gay. So for that there is a little bit of credibility to me. However in that article about questioning who CDAN is, I believe that he probably did send some nutty receipt and false information. But the article seemed to me to be planted by a publicist who has a mission to discredit the blog and the author helped in achieving this goal by publishing this article. It's a He Said/She Said type thing. The author uses anonymous sources who discredit the blog but why would they have more credibility than CDAN? The author tells us that the sources are "high powered " and "veteran" and we just have to take the author's word for it. That's the same logic we are faulted for following by believing that ENTY is a "dialed-in entertainment lawyer" since ENTY says he is.I also think it's interesting that in the instance of the HUNGER GAMES blind did the reporter question Jennifer Lawrence to find out about the rumors? Why bring it up and not follow up with the supposed source? I do think ENTY is usually full of shit but this article seemed to me to be an strategic publicity move to discredit the blog in mainstream media as a place where lies are spread as well as positioning anyone who believes any of the rumors as not very credible and gullible. To me this is a move done by someone that feels that ENTY got a little too close for comfort and may stand to lose something they value greatly. Kirk Douglas PR team anyone? I found myself asking "What was the purpose/objective of this article?" "Who benefits from this article?" and "What is the author POV towards the subject?". Maybe I am overanalyzing but this is article is an opening salve on the war to discredit a source rather than looking at what the source is saying and seeing if what the source is saying may be true. Just my two cents!

    I had just started reading CDaN when he started that money raising campaign to pay for the photos on his site. If you donated $50 or more he promised to send an autographed copy of Amber Tamblyn's new book. A lot of people called foul and pointed out that Enty didn't pay for most of his photographs and no photo agency charged the astronomical sum that Enty claimed was needed. Enty never responded to the skeptics and people who donated large sums of money never got their books.

    Despite that, he tried to raise funds again for his short lived radio show. I haven't been personally effected by any of this and most of his blinds (even the current juicy ones) are things that have been rumored for a long time or are common knowledge within the industry. I only bring this up, because while I agree, it's in the best interest of a few PR hacks to discredit Enty, he also really does have a history of being pretty sketchy.

There are some obvious giveaways, and it reads like a very poor attempt to disguise someone's writing style and identity. There are some specifics that point to Himmmm which I'll detail later, but first I'm actually curious to hear what others make of it.
    When I click on your link it just takes me to the top of the page and there's no "The head" comment. I guess it was removed. What was it about?

    Hi Lynnie D and others !!The NY Post article was hilarious, I think the NY Post writer should have given credit to all us doubters for doing her research! Quoting the article: "Enty, it turns out, handles wills and probate.Oh, and the person most likely to be Himmm, according to Enty? Someone who tells the Post he’s shocked to hear it — absolutely not true; he lives in Virginia and has retained a lawyer.
    It all indicates that Hollywood and the media have been punked — duped by a soft-spoken probate lawyer with delusions of grandeur."

    This Talley Griffith guy sounds like he in the throes of Munchausen by Internet. Instead of getting attention for illness, he's using the gossip and drama. When I read this on Wiki I thought it matched Hmmmm perfectly.

    Münchausen by Internet - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia


    Münchausen by Internet is a pattern of behavior in which Internet users seek attention by feigning illnesses in online venues such as chat rooms, message boards, and Internet Relay Chat (IRC). It has been described in medical literature as a manifestation of factitious disorder or factitious disorder by proxy.[1] Reports of users who deceive Internet forum participants by portraying themselves as gravely ill or as victims of violence first appeared in the 1990s due to the relative newness of Internet communications. The pattern was identified in 1998 by psychiatrist Marc Feldman, who created the term "Münchausen by Internet" in 2000. It is not included in the fourth revision of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM-IV-TR).



    People who demonstrate factitious disorders often claim to have physical ailments or be recovering from the consequences of stalking, victimization, harassment, and sexual abuse. Several behaviors present themselves to suggest factors beyond genuine problems. After studying 21 cases of deception, Feldman listed the following common behavior patterns in people who exhibited Münchausen by Internet:
    Medical literature from websites or textbooks is often duplicated or discussed in great detail.
    The length and severity of purported physical ailments conflicts with user behavior. Feldman uses the example of someone posting in considerable detail about being in septic shock, when such a possibility is extremely unlikely.
    Symptoms of ailments may be exaggerated as they correspond to a user's misunderstanding of the nature of an illness.
    Grave situations and increasingly critical prognoses are interspersed with "miraculous" recoveries.
    A user's posts eventually reveal contradictory information or claims that are implausible: for example, other users of a forum may find that a user has been divulging contradictory information about occurrence or length of hospital visits.
    When attention and sympathy decreases to focus on other members of the group, a user may announce that other dire events have transpired, including the illness or death of a close family member.
    When faced with insufficient expressions of attention or sympathy, a forum member claims this as a cause that symptoms worsen or do not improve.
    A user resists contact beyond the Internet, by telephone or personal visit, often claiming bizarre reasons for not being able to accept such contact.
    Further emergencies are described with inappropriate happiness, designed to garner immediate reactions.
    Other forum members post on behalf of a user, exhibiting identical writing styles, spelling errors, and language idiosyncrasies, suggesting that the user has created fictitious identities to move the conversation in their direction.[1]

    This is very true. If you wanna be a whistleblower you better make sure there is nothing the PTB can use to discredit you, and Enty's history of sketchy blinds and inconsistencies fills the bill. He made it all too easy, even if some of his current stuff is perfectly true.

    Wonder if Enty will address ANY of this on the site? I mean....people must be asking him about it right? Longtime posters perhaps? Lurkers like us?

    The NY Post article actually made me even more confused, because I thought he said he had been married 5 or 6 times, not 3. These little things are tripping me up haha! I cannot deal w/all of this info and crap.

    But I appreciate everyone else's thoughts and comments---makes for a very interesting outcome, if there ever is one. Keep up the good work!

    To all :
    This is who is running the CDaN site and why things are different, I caught this today when the new ads were coming up on CDAN and was able to see the domain that was coordinating the changes and easily trace it.Bottom line: So there is money in pedophiliac and rape gossip ,which, combined with the fake RDJ /Himmm posts to drum up media attention can make you rich ! How sad . Even sadder, some of it was probably true. I feel bad for the victims of that .I do not post on CDAN, so feel free to share this info, edit it, do it better, ignore it etc. But do be the first ! Stay true to your instincts !

    Ciao.
    On another forum (a mommy blog), I watched the outing of several paid commenters who were trying to stir up increased traffic. The publicity company, which was cleverly discovered, offered to keep the sites they represented updated in the form of writing posts themselves in the style of the site owner.

    The mommy blogs are replete with commentary, twits and posts from one publicity company handling their traffic. Wouldn't surprise me if that type of service was rampant throughout the gossip sites, too.
