Yours truly, Jason Quinlan aka XXXJay has been officially kicked out of the porn business for possessing a trait which is looked down upon in that industry: Honesty. I don't want to come off as the kind of jerk that keeps blaming his problems on everyone else and this is something I'm going to avoid in the future. Believe it or not, there are people in this world who are thieves, liars and back stabbers. Just this morning, I made the mistake of not locking my motel room door and some guy opened it and stole $15 off my dresser. Who's fault was that? Mine, for not locking the door? Or him walking in and attempting to ransack my room? I think the latter, but the porn crowd seems to love to blame the victim.
Today, I was banned from the GFY forum (it's the big adult Webmaster board), which has been on the decline for quite some time for posting the following:
We had an affiliate manager named Jeff K if there were ever problems with payments he was the guy to talk to. Quite often, webmasters who knew me directly they would come to me and I would help them sort it out. What I notice starting to happen was I was getting way too many complaints.
Sometime around 2006 we were hosting with Navasite. I actually never wanted to go to them because I knew National Net was the better company. There was a period of almost 4 months where are sites when out daily (sometimes days at a time). So JC decided to stop paying them until they got their shit together.
JC assumed that during that 4 months we were getting free hosting and you will have to remember this is when hosting was really expensive. Once they finally had us back up they billed us for $120,000. Meanwhile, JC decided to use this money as his own personal piggy bank and went on a four month bender in Vegas. Sometimes we couldn't get a hold of the “president” of our company for days at a time.
Navisite finally wound up sending us a bill for 120k and we couldn't pay it. They wound up taking us to court and we lost.
After we lost in court, the amount of emails I was getting from affiliates spiked. I figured for every one person that was contacting me, 10 people were contacting Jeff, so when I was out in Vegas I confronted JC about it, who is mailing the checks at the time.
He told me, “There are certain affiliates that always know when they are getting paid and I send out those checks, but there are a ton of other ones I just don't send them and they never ask.” So basically, he was robbing from our affiliates to pay for the money he spent.
This infuriated me because I was the “face” of the company, also a Webmaster, and nobody knew him.
I told him that this shit has got to stop because I opposed this vehemently, if anyone ever figured it out it was all going to come back on me, I throught it was wrong and could kill the company. He said that we HAD do it because we “didn't” have the money.
JC burst into one of his trademark steroid rages and that ended anything beneficial that could've come from that conversation.
Not long after that, JC stopped sending out the checks and turned it over to some accounting firm in Vegas and some CPA named Katie was the main point of contact. I'm sure many reading this thread are familiar with her. This created a buffer between the company and the money. Again, I was only told about his after it happened. Not that I had a real problem with it, because I figured it would stop the shenanigans.
Once they had Katie in place, how it appeared to me, was if someone noticed they haven't been paid they would contact Katie and she would send the money, but I am guessing if you didn't notice, you just didn't get paid. If you do some searches on GFY, you will see what I'm talking about.
Another reason that I know that they don't pay affiliates is because I was one! When I originally joined the company they wanted me to send all of my traffic from my affiliate sites to them for free. I told them that there was no way in hell I was going to do that and I would just promote the competitors. So, they allowed me to be an affiliate, but getting my checks from them was always like pulling teeth.
Lastly, this didn't just apply to affiliates. There were many times when they just wouldn't deposit my salary. Sometimes I wouldn't notice until 2-3 payments.
Which leads me to this:
1. Katie is either the worst accountant in the world
2. Those guys are total crooks
So if you're asking me if I knew it was happening, I suspected by searching the threads on GFY and would always see affiliates complaining about missing payments and then all of a sudden the check would magically show up.
Again, this was me being stupid and naïve. Plus, there was so much money going around I didn't ask many questions about our financial status, but I never had our banking information, access to the accounting firm, and even had trouble getting my own payments both as an affiliate and a partner.
Things may have changed since they are with that other program, so I cannot comment, but I swear on my Jeff Hanneman guitar that every single word that you read above is true!
I knew my post was going to cause a ruckus because my original one was filmed on periscope walking extremely drunk home from a bar. I wanted to chance to respond when I was more lucid and my words could shred like razors.
Just prior to booting me, the new business partner got in the thread and made sure to contribute his $.02, leaving him with the last word. Seeing as I can no longer refute his claims, I will do it here.
This is his response that I broke down:
I’ll be making one post regarding these false claims as this is a direct attack on my business and my partners.
Posting about hosting woes and cash flow issues that plagued the company in 2006 has no bearing on the state of the program or finances in 2016.
They must really suck, because apparently, you have an office full of people. I am one guy, and I was able to produce more traffic then you ever could. The network run under your tenure was nothing short of a straight descent into oblivion.
You were a full partner with an equal share for many years, you were issued a K1 for your tax returns each year
Yes, I was issued a K-1, but it was by Katie, who I trust about as far as I can throw a super-massive black hole.
The incompetence and greed of my former business partners and this CPA was best summed up by one of our subcontractors:
Invoice #1100 is over a month late again and I really have zero interest in following up on every single invoice I submit to you. I imagine your client has given you a directive to not pay these on time; there is absolutely no way you can be this bad at what you do. I have attached my latest invoice (#1122) which reflects a 10% late fee. Please be aware that I will increase that fee considerably the next time an invoice is one day late. The terms are, and always have been, Net 15 — I assume you know what that means. All work has been halted until I receive payment for both of these invoices. If that is the case, this would be second time the check “mysteriously” disappeared. The mail is bad, but not that bad.
Or there is this “mysterious” missing payment to our biggest affiliate Freeones:
to say you were left in the dark about company finances is absurd. All partners receive a P&L by the 10th of the following month
Were you there Kenny? I never received a P&L statement EVER! Not on the 10th! Not quarterly, not fucking ever. The only time JC would ever bring out those P&L statements is when he was trying to sell the company and inflate the value on paper.
this was in place when I entered the company close to 3 years ago; there’s is no lack of transparency regarding finances.
I beg to differ. Just go search GFY, you'll see the threads I'm talking about.
When I buy or buy into any company one of the first things I verify during my due diligence is that all affiliates are paid and current.
That's hilarious; I know affiliates right now, that I can log into their accounts and see money that hasn't been paid to them. One time Katie tried to stiff freeones for nearly $5000. Claiming it was another “mistake.” That's when I started to suggest that we fire her, but JC was dead set against it. They were obviously in cahoots. Trust me, buddy, there's “history” and there's “his story”. Just speaking from personal experience, don't be naïve.
Anytime a program isn’t paying their affiliates it doesn’t take long before threads are started and word spreads, by actual affiliates not disgruntle ex-partners 3 years after they’ve left the company.
That is because they skimmed cash like a well-oiled machine. I never received any of it. I think you can take a guess at who was pocketing it and all of a sudden showing up with brand-new $60,000 watches and new cars every few months.
OCCash was one of the largest interracial and black programs out there. Your racist social media antics, hate websites such as nignogs hosted on company servers and use of the N word all over
See, you don't know me. I probably have more black friends than white friends. As true is that was in LA it's even truer here in Atlanta. We would call each other all kinds of nasty racial epithets, BUT IT WAS ALL IN GOOD FUN! I'm sure there a lot of people who did not understand it and in hindsight, we probably shouldn't have been doing it. The old password to the WIFI at the OC modeling office was ‘IHATENIGGERS‘. I wasn't the one who chose that, it was Sandra. I didn't set it up either.
industry forms caused TTBoy your content partner to cut all ties with the company
Ironically, just before you came on board JC and Morgan wanted to ditch TTboy and use all of Brian Pumpers content. Ironically, I was the sole dissenting voice, saying that we should stay loyal to TT.
and drove the business into the ground.
No, buddy, don't put your failings on me. On the day those idiots let me go the was same day Google Penguin hit, which I at least had the brains to see coming and got those morons to get all of the links they were selling on every page on all of our sites off. Some of them got banned for a brief time, but I was able to be Capt. save a hoe and fix-it. And as far as TT goes, as the years went on his content and and just got worse and worse. Selling that crap was harder than selling fire in hell!
Having the face of the company dressing up in black face isn’t the image anyone wants for their business.
It's a Holloween costume. And every time I did it I would go out with my black friends, Just to ensure nobody got their panties in a bunch
I’m sure your very public abuse of drugs and alcohol didn’t help matters, but it wasn’t the main reason for your partners buying you out.
For one, those douche bags knew precisely who was when they chose to get in business withme and two out of the for were bigger drug addicts than I could ever imagine being. If JC's nose fell off Columbia would go out of business!
As for the personal attacks, false claims
There were no false claims, just big buckets of truth soup. If you want to lay down with dogs, you are going to wake up with fleas. You will learn soon enough.
and physical threats;
There were no physical threats. Sandra and Nick both had the gall to take me to court and lost both times. If you knew me, I'm not a violent person.
those who know JC, Morgan, Nick, CJ and Sandra know you’re spouting hate and lies.
Your constant barrage of accusations are unfounded making you look bitter and unstable.
“Bitter,” sure. I will take that. The unstable part came when they killed the goose that laid the golden egg and without which they wouldn't exist and I sacrificed everything to ensure those programs will succeed. Trust me, the brains behind those programs aren't you're stuck with, it was me. When I first started with those guys didn't even know what crosssale was
I’m not sure what you plan to accomplish with these type of threads, it’s been almost three years since you were bought out. I hope you get your life together, take responsibility for your actions and can move on and find some level of happiness and success.
Yeah, whatever — Go fuck yourself.
And lastly, since when did the porn business turned into a motherfucking moral majority? Jesus, this is all stupider beyond belief.
Feel free to leave comments, opinions, death threats or whatever you want I will approve them and respond to them accordingly!
