Lazymanandmoney.com Blogger, Brian C. Macfarland, aka Corey Whitlaw, Has a Real Job?

Well, thanks to the post from the author of “Protandim Retort”, we now have the real name of the Lazyman blogger as Brian C. Macfarland.  Doing a little novice detective work, it was quite easy to confirm this from multiple sources and find other information on this bloody low-life, Brian C. Macfarland.  Turns out that Brian had been in Mass. then spent several years in CA, working in Silicone Valley and doing what he does best, sitting in his chair in front of his computer in his Y-fronts spewing lies and hatred from his keyboard for the whole world to see.  But now, Mr. Macfarland has a “respectable job” back in Mass.  He works for a company called uLocate, which runs Where.com (a PayPal company).  Brian is employeed there as a “software engineer.”  Where.com is a mobile app that many of you likely use to locate restaurants and other businesses and services and read reviews about the places of business.  The name of where.com’s CEO is Walter Doyle.  I wonder if Mr. Doyle is aware of what Brian does in his downtime, or perhaps while on the clock at where.com.  I wonder if Mr. Doyle thinks that Brian’s blogging activities send a positive message that Where.com can feel confident in the integrity of the employees working there.  I would be interested in hearing the thoughts of all of you out there.

Here is Walter Doyle’s Mailing Address for those interested in where Brian works:

Since I now know the university Brian attended and the years he was there, I expect additional information to be forthcoming.  Turns out I have acquaintances who attended that college during the years Brian was there.  Hmmmm, I wonder what university life was like for Brian.  Perhaps we will gain an understanding into the psychopathology that I believe has developed in the mind of Brian.  Perhaps the roots of this psychopathology originated at his college.  We will work on that.

Clearly, it would appear to a reasonable person that Brian may indeed suffer from some psychiatric and/or personality disorder.  Why, you ask?  Well in addition to the blogs in which Brian writes about the evils of network marketing and particular companies, and how he slanders and defames respectable hard working individuals, Brian also has a self help blog; http://www.bebetternow.org.  I find this particularly intriguing.  Initially, I thought perhaps Brian was turning over a new leaf, indeed wanting to better himself and others.  This was until I found that the self help blog posts predated many of his most vile and slanderous comments on his Lazyman and other blogs.  Here is an excerpt from his bebetternow.org website:

“Be Better Now a blog that is (quite literally) about improving your life today. Have you said to yourself, “I’m going to lose that weight”, “I’m going to start that business”, or “I’m going to clean the garage”, but then put it off until tomorrow? It’s very cliché, but tomorrow never comes. I have waited for tomorrow my whole life. Even this very website is a string of “tomorrows” covering many months. So I’m laying down the gauntlet and challenging myself to “Be Better Now.” (There’s a 103% chance I’m going to regret this slogan the second my wife reads this.)…

I want to be a better person for my family, my friends, my community, and society in general. However, most of all, I want to be better for me. If I can convince others this is a worthwhile endeavor, inspire them to be better, and guide them to their goals… well, I’m not emotionally capable of finishing that thought. That’s how much it would mean to me…

I’m just an ordinary person like you trying to make positive change in his life and the lives of others (even if that is a bit of a stretch goal). I am not a self-help guru. I don’t have all the answers. I’m not trying to tell someone how to “Be Better Now,” I’m going to explore ways that one could choose to be better. I’m going to make many mistakes along the way, but I will learn from those mistakes. I am not perfect. In the end, all I will have on this website is a lot of words… it’s up to you and me to turn them into actions.”…

Other things you might want to know about me: I was born in the United States where too often I take freedom for granted. My parents raised me well, taught me right from wrong, and helped me get a great education. I have a lovely wife who puts up with more of my crap than I can ever tell. We have a puppy that snuggles with my feet at the end of the bed. I have a dream job of developing web-based businesses. It allows me to work wherever I want to work, when I work, and how much I work. I live in Northern California where the weather is beautiful year round and the business opportunities of Silicon Valley seem unparalleled. In short, I have it pretty good.” –  Brian C. Macfarland aka Corey Whitlaw, aka Lazyman aka The Lazy Moron.  Almost chokes you up doesn’t it – like an oyster caught in your throat!

From the best I can determine, that statement was written in Jan of 2011, while Brian was still living in California – he now live in the Boston area.  Seems as if his foray into “being better” was short lived and he has returned to the dark side.  Indeed, Brian has made many mistakes, but, unfortunately, he has not learned from them.  Brian is a bloody hypocrite!

My recommendation to Brian is to seek professional help, because I believe there are some deep, deep issues going on in that mind.  One can’t write how he wants to better himself and others and then figuratively disembowel individuals on another blog.  I believe Brian is a sick individual in need of intensive psychotherapy.  If he has a personality disorder, though, all bets are off because personality disorders cannot be successfully treated.  His behaviour reminds me of Sybil.  Remember her from the 70′s?

What can we learn about Brian/Corey from these items on his wish list?  The two books that struck me as the most intriguing are the Robert Kiyosaki book and the book on self control and how to get more of it.  Hmmmm…. I think he’s on to something here.  Why would he be reading a book from one of the key advocates of Network Marketing, Robert Kiyosaki?  To learn more of the ins and outs of the business to bash it more, or because he’s beginning to realize this is a viable business model.  The fact that he is needing a book on self control speaks volumes itself and needs no commentary!!  I welcome others assessments of this potpourri of items on Brian’s wish list.  I could go on and on myself but, let’s hear what the rest of you are thinking.

The next post will contain some very concrete information on Brian/Corey regarding specific aspects of his current position.  Keep watching for it.  Waiting for some confirmation of a few items before I post it.  The post is already written as a draft.  I’m sure you all will love it!  Keep watching for more updates!

Lazyman and Money Blogger, Corey Whitlaw is really Brian C. MacFarland

With permission from Dan of the blog “Protandim Retort”, I give you the real identity of Corey Whitlaw, blogger of Lazyman and money

Protandim Retort

Clearing up the Lies Spread by Lazy Man

without comments

The Lazy Man and Money blog is owned and authored by Brian Macfarland (aka Corey Whitlaw, aka Vogal, aka dostoyevsky_1999).  He is also the owner of a Protandim Scams website and a Juice Scam site, and does whatever it takes to promote his website and agenda: to make money.

Several few years ago, Mr Macfarland found if he ran a negative blog on one of the fastest network marketing companies of the time (Monavie), he could make a lot of money with affiliate based advertising.

Affiliate advertising works like this: If you have a heavily trafficked website, a network (like Google) can place ads on your website.  The higher your website is ranked in search results, the more it is seen.  The more ads seen by visitors, the more clicks those ads receive, and the you make money.  Why?  Because the network (Google) passes some of the ad revenue on those clicks to  the affiliate.  Some of the highest ranked web site owners can make tens of thousands of dollars per year and more.

In this manner Mr Macfarland quickly found if he created controversial content regarding Monavie it would lure in Monavie distributors to keep the debate going on his sites, which increased his website ranking on Google and other search engines.  His sites quickly became the top anti-Monavie presence on the Internet.  Since he could control the content as he saw fit, it was very easy to keep the debate going.  This is something Mr Macfarland is very skilled at, telling just enough truth to not be seen as an immediate fraud, but enough distortions and omissions to draw conflict and attention to his website.

When he saw the rise of LifeVantage in 2010, he decided to do the same thing again.  Today he has successfully attached his blog to the success of LifeVantage and Protandim, and it is now one of the highest ranked affiliate pages on the Internet on the subject, and Mr Macfarland is making more money than ever, all the while creating falsehoods and in some cases lies, often repeated on the Internet, as if “Lazy Man” is some sort of expert on the subject.

Here are some important things to know:

  • Brian Macfarland has no scientific background or degree we know of.  He is not an expert on free radical biology, antioxidants or even network marketing.  He is a software engineer.
  • His website content is controlled by him and it is not audited in any fashion, or “peer reviewed” to coin a term often used by the LifeVantage message.  He can edit anything he wants, or hide anything he wants.  He can become any supporting author or contributor on his sites (i.e. Vogal), and can spin and create whatever “facts” he chooses to weave.
  • He invests financially in promoting his websites.  He has created paid for back links to his site, promoting his scam pages as well as spending hundreds of hours creating, editing and manipulating content.
  • He is opposed to all forms of network marketing (for some reason), and thinks they are scams and should be illegal.
  • He goes to great lengths to hide his identity, agenda, qualifications (or lack there of).
  • He has spent a considerable amount of money fighting lawsuits brought against him.  Ask yourself, how is he funding his defense? It’s very important to him to keep his website going, and his income coming.
If you would like to add any supporting information or comments, please feel free to leave a comment.  Please feel free to link to this website, to help let people know who this guy really is and what his agenda really is.

Lazy Moron, Corey Whitlaw and MonaVie

So you may be asking yourself what it is that prompted this computer programmer and linguist by the name of “Corey Whitlaw” to pursue a life of trying to tear down reputable companies like MonaVie and the individuals associated with them?  Mona Vie makes excellent products, some of which I have used, but I have no vested interest in the MonaVie company.  Nonetheless, I do have friends who are MonaVie distributors.  Some have done very well in this company, others have not done as well.  In a network marketing company, whether an individual distributor does well or not isn’t a reflection on the company itself.  The company may have all the right attributes to allow distributors to be successful, but if the distributor isn’t successful in their personal business, it is usually because that person didn’t do things according to the plan in place by the company to insure their success. That said, I do know many individuals who have worked very hard to build a business, seemingly doing all the right things, but despite that they are not successful.  I get that.  Unfortunately, that is the nature of business – any business.  Certainly, there is a bit of luck involved in most businesses, but usually it boils done to good old-fashioned hard work.  Those who consistently do that work and don’t quit will have the greatest likelihood of success.

Enter Corey Whitlaw.  I’m not sure what type of relationship Corey has with his wife, but I’m sure they went through a tough time when his wife enrolled in MonaVie.  I can picture it in my mind’s eye.  I’m sure it went something like this… Corey’s wife went to a MonaVie tasting party ITS – invite, taste, share.  She heard the presentation and thought this sounded like a great product that she wanted to try.  She enrolled as a distributor.  She came home with enthusiasm about this great new product and shared it with her loving husband, Corey.  Corey heard the story and probably said something like, “You stupid, ignorant @#$%&!!!  How could you fall for such a stupid scam?  Don’t you know that it’s an illegal pyramid scheme selling over priced juice!”  (But, I’m sure he said it in a very loving manner.)  So now, with that type of support, Mrs. Whitlaw goes about trying to build a successful network marketing business.  Obviously, out of the blocks, there is a big problem – her unsupportive, closed minded bonehead of a husband, Corey.  I’ve certainly seen this scenario before, but most husbands would be supportive enough to allow their spouse to at least try their hand at a new business.  (Corey was probably pulling in the big bucks though, sitting in his underwear in front of the computer playing video games, so he probably had a good financial position from which to scorn his wife for her new business venture!) ;-)  Time passes.  Corey continues to harass his wife, calling her all sorts of expletives, and saying, “See, I told you this was a stupid thing for you to get involved with!”  Her confidence dwindles, she throws in the towel and puts up the white flag.  What do you think the likelihood of her success was in this scenario?  Absolutely zero!  Corey views this as a major victory and justification that he can proceed with reckless abandon to personally try to destroy MonaVie and every other company that sells health related products through the network marketing channel.  You see, really, what I think is going on in this scenario is that Corey likely knew of some people who were indeed successful in network marketing and he, being a slob in his underwear sitting in front of the computer all day, mouse in one hand…, couldn’t stand the fact that anyone could be successful in this industry.  So, it became a personal vendetta to try to destroy every company like this that he could all for the altruistic purpose of trying to keep others from making the same mistake his wife did.  And, he probably thought, “Gee, I can make money doing it too!”

What Corey must realize is that in America – remember this is indeed America and not China – people are allowed to make decisions about their health and business for themselves.  If a person hears a presentation, doesn’t like it, they can say ‘no’ and walk away.  We are adults after all.  Corey is not the keeper of the ‘secret knowledge’ which must be imparted on every person.  I certainly don’t care for a number of occupations, but I don’t go about trying to destroy them.   The two companies which Corey is working hardest to discredit right now are MonaVie and Protandim.  I know individuals involved with each company.  None of the individuals I know are monsters out spreading lies about these companies as Lazymoron would have you believe.  These companies have integrity.  Lazymoron does not.  Remember, his blog is designed to make money.  He himself profits from curious people clicking on his site and visiting the companies that advertise on it.  I find it interesting that many of the ads on his site are for nutritional supplements.  Hmmmm….  Lazymoron is indeed the biggest hypocrite in this whole story.  How is it that a person can bash other nutritional supplements, some of which have published peer reviewed research studies, and sell supplements on his own website that have absolutely no scientific research behind them?  Do you see a conflict of interest there?  I surely do.

So, what are the Top Ten conclusions can we draw about Lazymoron, Corey Whitlaw?

10.  He has no scientific background or degrees.  (Anyone who believes the Lazymoron to be a credible expert on anything scientific is indeed misguided.)

9.  He doesn’t like network marketing, he thinks it’s an illegal pyramid scheme.

8.  He doesn’t like people being more successful than he is.  (Clearly some inadequacy issues going on.)

7.  He’s the biggest hypocrite I know selling untested supplements on his website while bashing tested supplements.

6.  He doesn’t know how to read and interpret scientific studies but tries to act as if he does.  (Smart people can see right through his facade.)

5.  He either can’t or won’t get a real job and contribute to society in a productive way.

4.  He won’t allow his wife to be successful.  (Clearly some deeper psychological issues here.)

3.  He thinks everyone is dumber than he is and he must educate them, while the converse is true.

2.  His blog is the National Enquirer of websites.  Anyone who reads it and believes what he says is truly a lazier moron than the Lazymoron himself.

1.  In the end, he’s just plain Lazy!

Corey hard at work!

Lazy Moron #1, Corey Whitlaw

Corey Whitlaw, aka Vogel, is the first lazy moron we would like to highlight. Corey has a very provocative website where he questions everything. (So as not to increase readership of his trash website, I will not name it here. Many of you will be familiar with it by his name alone.) I’ve witnessed him call people incredibly horrible things on his website, that I cannot in good conscience repeat on this site, I’ve seen him defame, slander, lie about persons, products and companies. I’ve seen him try to refute scientific evidence as if he is a physician or scientist. Unfortunately, he is not. He has a degree in computer science and linguistics. Recently, I sent him a comment on one of his posts in which he has slandered countless persons. Corey, unfortunately, chose not to post my comment, so I thought I would share it with you, since he will not.

Corey, Vogel, or whatever alias you are using now,
I would like to know more about your background, education, job (if you have one) so people can decide if you are deserving of any credibility whatsoever. I’m not convinced that degrees in computer science and linguistics qualifies you for anything other than computer science and linguistics. Also, knowing your college GPA will help us decide if you even know anything about these areas. Certainly these degrees do not qualify you to read and accurately interpret scientific studies in medicine. With my background and reading of your naive, and sophomoric comments, and visceral attacks on individuals regarding science, products, companies, etc., it is my belief that you have a self induced retrograde impaction of your amygdala on your ileocecal valve, and are therefore incapable of higher cortical functions such as would be expected in higher vertebrate species like homo sapiens. I would love to enter with you into a scientific debate if you were capable of higher cortical function. Your posts, however, clearly show you are incapable of any higher neurological function than perhaps the medulla. As such, I refuse to match wits with an unarmed individual.
Have a wonderful day!
P.S. I do hope you post this comment in it’s entirety.

Well, Corey responded to me via email but refuses to put my comment on his blog. He states because I “refuse to discuss the matter.” Obviously, Corey is incapable of understanding a joke. He likely didn’t understand the comment about the amygdala and the ileocecal valve either. If he didn’t understand that comment, it just further makes my point that he is totally unqualified to comment on scientific studies and those who are. The only thing I think he is qualified to do is sit in his underwear at his computer and play video games. I still would like to hear him discuss why he thinks, with his degrees, he is somehow qualified to comment on scientific research completely unrelated to his area of study.

Certainly, Corey will make some comment on the pedestrian nature of this blog. It is that way by design. I have a real job, and contribute to the world in a positive way everyday. I don’t sit in front of my computer every day, all day long. Corey, on the other hand, chooses to lead a life of tearing others down. I think there are some deep psychological issues there. Wonder what Freud would say.

Our hats off to Corey Whitlaw, our Lazy Moron #1!
