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:
77 N Washington St, 3rd Floor
Boston, MA 02114
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?
