Undressing The GORB

Summary:Finally we get to the bottom of The GORB. Who are the founders of this gossip site? What are they really up to? And can we trust anyone any more (even me)?

Do you believe that most people are good and it's okay not to be perfect?

If so, you've got something in common with the founding management team at THE GORB. Yes, I've found the culprits behind the gossipy Web 2.0 site for gossips which spreads rumors about the moral vices of other people. I received an almost instantaneous email from a reader who chooses to remain anonymous. As she explained: "I have become a (very unwilling) advocate for copyrights, and because of that, I know what it is like to be pilloried by the free culturists, copyright abolitionists, and the opportunistic freeloaders who financially benefit from the economic stress and outright theft of artists' works."

So if you want to pillory anyone, pillory me -- the apotheosis of imperfection. I welcome being pilloried -- especially by free culturists and copyright abolitionists. Please post the very worst things you know about me on The GORB -- the site that promises "to set the truth free". You can tell the whole world about the time that I publicly tore my own clothes off in rage after I couldn't fix my punctured bicycle tire. You can reveal my deepest fears (losing my wallet), my love of Bulgarian men (especially Dimitar Berbatov) or, most revealingly of all, my true history as a Silicon Valley thief.

But back to the GORB. Who are they, these paragons of pillorydom? Let me reveal their names: Jorge L. Barroso, Dr. Irma Becerra-Fernandez, Chris DellaRocas, Antonio Belfort, Bernardo Rodriguez, Joaquin De Soto and Leonard Boord. These are the founding fathers of The GORB, the biggest new thing in truth-telling since Dr Freud's reupholstered his couch. But let's get beyond their names, their academic degrees, their fancy jobs and even fancier professional accomplishments. Who really are these GORBsters? Has Leonard Boord really started 3 successful ventures? Was Antonio Belfort really a senior engagement manager at McKinsey? What kind of doctor really is Irma Becerra-Fernandez? Does Chris DellaRoccas really hold 3 patents (and who stole the hyphen in his name)? Email me the truth about this and more. I promise I'll really publish all your "feedback" so that we can help the GORB founding team become better people. 

Collectively, we'll get to the bottom of The GORB. And, speaking of bottoms, is it really true that Jorge L. Barroso has been known to glance rather longingly at Chris DellaRocas' less than perfect bottom? That's what both Antonio Belfort and Joaquin De Soto tell me (anonymously of course); and they should know -- both are in therapy with Dr Irma Beccera-Fernandez who is herself spending a lot of time alone with Antonio Belfort. Don't trust me on this. You can read all about them on The GORB -- the Internet site that really does reveal the naked (wink-wink) truth about all of our imperfections.
