    Angry Another Shill at Platinum?

    For those who don't read TBD anymore, it seems Platinum is having shilling problems, this time in the form of PeterPlatinum/RollyPolly. My postion on this is pretty clear i.e that RollyPolly=PeterPlatinum, I'll let the rest of you decide. See SHILL??!!

    Peter, Rollypolly, etc....

    Several posters on this board have suspected for months that Peter also posts as RollyPolly and other handles. I didn't think it was that big of a secret until now.

    Guess I'm going to have to play the role of the ignorant poster. I have suspected some link between RollyPolly and Platinum for quite some time based on RollyPolly's overly positive posts that contained a surprisingly abundant amount of current information on Exxxclusive, Cashmere and Platinum. But until now I wasn't entirely sure and have been unable to verify that relationship; as such, I have not been willing to accuse anyone w/o more concrete proof.

    Till yesterday, PeterPlatinum felt safe enough to post under his other handle, RollyPolly on both boards, in fact so safe that he actually got careless. Thus, he has clearly felt no pressure from those members in the know and even thought that he had enough supporters to defend himself on TBD.

    Therefore, my question is if several members had known about this, WHY haven't they brought it to the attention of the board? Also what are the other handles that Peter is posting under?

    Like you I only had suspicions and no concrete evidence until the exposure of cookies on TBD. I have exposed shills here and on TBD, but I have also on occasion overreacted to a dumb post by a newbie, so I have tried to pick my spots and only pick on the posters who become a real problem. I think that is a prudent policy because we don't want to scare away legitimate newbies or inexperienced posters who may become stellar contributors down the road.
    EB,

    I totally agree with you on the need for restraint and concrete evidence before declaring someone a shill and that it's not always easy exposing shills especially the more internet savvy and well-written shills.

    My previous questions were to clarify the posts by JustaJohn and Man911.

    I'll clarify my previous post to this (and i'll edit it):

    "Several posters on this board have 'suspected' for months that Peter also posts as RollyPolly and other handles. I didn't think it was that big of a secret until now."

    Like you guys (EB & DB), i didn't have concrete proof of this, so i didn't mention it. Frankly, i didn't care. If Peter is indeed posting under other handles, i'm certain he wouldn't be the first agency owner/espy to do so. All it shows, if true, is the fact he's seeing espys from other agencies. Now, should we begin to wonder why he's doing this? Business, or pleasure?? Maybe a case of both.

    JAJ,

    Thanks for the clarification. As for PeterPlatinum's seeing of other agency escorts, that's probably for pleasure as well as business i.e. see what the competition has and judging from his lack of integrity, probably the active poaching of escorts from other agencies. I feel bad for one of his new recruits, Rebekka. Having met her while she was at SatinDreamz and finding her to be a very nice person, it sure sucks that she chose to work for one of the escort industry's scumbags.

    It seems that RollyPolly/PeterPlatinum is still trying to defend himself on TBD, he really thinks that he can still rat his way out of this. I hope the moderator there bans his ass from that board. While RollyPolly/PeterPlatinum did his screw up on TBD, does anyone know if Fred Zed will consider banning him from MERB?

    I don't know Peter, nor have i ever spoken to him. However, i always found it odd that a popular espy such as Marie-Eve would leave his $300 or so per hour stable and go back to Asservissante at $160.

    As for Rebekka leaving SD for Platinum....well, what can i say? From what i gathered from this board, i suppose Peter must also be a regular customer of SD's.

    With reference to your "Life is a ballgame" story, one possible reason could have been that her regulars decided to give Marie-Eve the big sayonara when she left Asservissante to play triple A ball and with a crappy team at that.

    Apart from Platinum's nice web site and fancy photos, the level of support that Platinum gives to it's escorts is suspect. I recall E B Samaritano commenting in a earlier post that Platinum's only proven escort, Crystelle, was handling her own email; PeterPlatinum must have been too busy posing as RollyPolly to help. It's good to know that Marie-Eve is back with Asservissante, my guess is that she finally got tired of all those broken promises.

    I totally agree with your comment that PeterPlatinum has little respect for us, hobbyists. Apart from his shilling, the ridiculous prices at Platinum are also symptomatic of that lack of respect. He probably thinks we're all too dumb to figure out that there are clearly far better deals out there. Unfortunately, PeterPlatinum will continue to get business from ignorant tourists who haven't bothered to do their research and who still think they're in the US; it's hard to help those who don't want to be helped.

    I'm going to avoid Exxxclusive, Cashmere and Platinum not only out of principle but also because giving these dishonest agency owners an opportunity to screw me just woudn't be smart. Also, these people will eventually have to face the consequences of their dishonesty and when it happens, I do not want to be caught in the middle of it.
