    What did Xyience ever do to you??? You’re crazy, they have a slm dunk case here, rock solid from the look of the court documents you posted.

    Danny, It’s not about what Xyience did to me. It’s what they are doing to the general public and to the MMA community. They are presenting themselves as something they are not and acting in a fraudulent manner. I just received an email yesterday from yet another client of theirs who has not been paid for their services. The company president told me Xyience’s marketing approach is totally inconsistent with sales figures. And as far as their slam dunk case I really had to laugh at that one. Where is the evidence on their part? Really, take a good look at the whole case and you’ll notice there’s absolutely no evidence. They say I made up quotes, but there is no affidavit from the man I supposedly made up quotes from. On my site I have posted all the evidence to show the email posted on my now defunct MySpace site was full of verifiable facts. I also never claimed it was all true and never made any of the conentions within it myself. The author of the email made all those claims, not me. Besides, that information is no longer even available on any of my sites, so it can’t be doing damage anymore. As for the story they included in evidence, all of that information is backed up by factual information and testimony from impeccable witnesses. You will see how slam dunk their case is when it gets thrown out of court.

    I also think that you should remove the material.
    It looks too personal. Against Pike.
    Don’t bring down the whole company. What’s the point?

    If they have interested investors, that means the company can come back in a big way under new managment.

    I would invest if I had anything to spare.
    Xyience is on the mat. Great exposure if you like the UFC.
    You need to move on and just forget about all this drama for your own peace of mind.
    Cheers

    How can I move on when I am being sued for over $25 million? It was never personal to me, and if anything this lawsuit is the only thing that makes it personal, because now I am forced to defend my name and reputation. I did nothing wrong. I am not out to destroy Xyience. I did what I felt was necessary to expose the facts. And Pike is Xyience, no matter how hard they try to separate him from the picture. They have tried time and again to place new leadership at the top, and it hasn’t worked yet. What makes you think it will work now? The point is to explain to people what is really going on so they are not all left shocked when this company dissolves. Their credit is extended to the max, and the exposure they are getting in the UFC can’t repair the bad reputation they have, and they’ve had that bad rap long before I put this investigative report together. I would love to move on and forget this. It’s not the kind of effort I want to be involved in right now. I’d rather be highlighting the finer aspects of the fight game, but now their lawsuit is forcing me into overdrive. Now I’m convinced the only way out of this is to make sure the world knows what happened and that now they are resorting to sicking their high powered lawyers after an innocent man.

    i am a huge mma fan and this is the first i have heard about this. i dont know enough to say but i will not believe the ufc or ecspecially dana white has committed any kind of fraud. i believe that dana white’s only ambition is to help the ufc grow, i respect that man more than ever for bringing back the sport that nearly died, and putting everything he has into giving diehard fans like me the opportunity to watch the best sport ever in a new light by means of mainstream acceptance. so thank you for everything dana white.

    You should ask Xyience what you can do to make this lawsuit go away. You said yourself you cant afford to fight the lawsuit, and the old saying goes: A defendant who acts as their own attorney has a fool for a client… I bet Xyience would drop the suit if you stopped trying to take down Xyience. Rich, sometimes you have to walk away, some things are just not worth pursing… There are many people who have jobs at Xyience besides Mr. Pike, what happens to them???

  7. rich.bergeron
    August 6th, 2007 @ 8:59 pm

    Danny, it’s really easy for you to sit back and suggest what I should do here. The fact you fail to see here is that I AM NOT OUT TO GET OR OUT TO DESTROY XYIENCE. For one they are doing a perfectly good job of destroying themselves. Secondly, my blog stories are not what’s really at the heart of their problems. The fact is I wrote the full and accurate truth, and I put hours upon hours into finding the truth about what got this company started. Their problems arise from their own actions, and with or without my stories exposing what they’ve done, they would still be in trouble right now. Read this document from February: XYIENCE CONNECTION TO SEC’S CASE AGAINST AA CAPITAL’S PRESIDENT AND CEO JOHN ORECCHIO and you will see it outlines how Xyience relies on regular multi-million dollar infusions of capital just to survive. I did not drive them to that point. The story at the center of their lawsuit wasn’t even conceived yet at the point when that court document was filed. I realize they have messed it up for innocent people by driving the company into the ground, but don’t blame me for what they did. As for coming to them on my hands and knees begging for them to back off, it’s not going to happen. They have had plenty of opportunities to set the record straight and provide me with interviews, but they’ve instead chosen to hide from it all in the hopes that it will just go away. It’s like pleading the fifth, and it just about screams of their guilt. What good does it do to look the other way when you know about corruption? When you know something is wrong and you look away and don’t say anything or tell anyone, that makes you a coward in my book. My honor and integrity is in question now because of this lawsuit, and I’ve done nothing but tell the truth. And besides, I’m going to prove that old saying wrong.

    “The fact is I wrote the full and accurate truth, and I put hours upon hours into finding the truth about what got this company started”

    There was never an SEC investigation… how was this the truth? You did not look deeper into the AA capital situation. If you had you would have seen further documentation that revealed that AA capital was attempting a hostil takeover and the sale of stocks where BLOCKED.

  9. rich.bergeron
    August 7th, 2007 @ 2:29 pm

    The sale of the AA Capital Stock was not blocked. Xyience attempted to block it but did not succeed. You obviously haven’t read the documents. Also, AA Capital was under investigation by the SEC, and Xyience STOCK factored HEAVILY in the investigation.

    Ok, all i’m going to say is xyience supp. SUCK!!!!! And the way i see it is they know they suck & that you have a point on the whole thing & are leting people know, so now they have thier little pantys in a wad & are going to try & sue you. People, go into any GMC & ask any employee or customer who is realy into Training what they think about Xyience supp. They will tell you it SUCKS!!!!!!!

  11. Greg
    August 7th, 2007 @ 3:53 pm

    I’m a little lost. What may help is a timeline. Also, does Xyience have double-blind research to back their claims as far as supplement(s) potentency, purity, and delivery?

    So far, the only company I know of that does is Apex Fitness Group, owned by Neil Spruce.

    A corrupt company get exposed, and everybody looks the other way……. the one man who doesn’t gets hit with a 25mil suit. The absolute worst of America right here. How can one man possibly cause 25 million worth of damage to the company, huh? I’d like to know that.

  13. Danny
    August 7th, 2007 @ 10:14 pm

    Rich,
    the fact that “Xyience relies on regular multi-million dollar infusions of capital just to survive,” proves nothing… Guess you didn’t pay attention to that course in high school… btw, this is not an insult to you by any means… most people dont know that most business lose money the first 3 years…This is how losses work:

    First, your business loss reduces your total income. On Form 1040, your total income is calculated on Line 22. The loss also reduces your Adjusted Gross Income (Line 36), and Taxable Income (Line 42). As such, your business loss reduces your income tax. If you have a day job (on a W-2), this means you will get a bigger refund compared to someone who earned the same amount of wages but did not have a freelance gig side business.

    Reducing your taxes in this way is an excellent tax strategy. In fact, many tax professionals have encouraged people with high incomes to convert their hobbies into “businesses” so they can have a loss to reduce their income. Not surprisingly, the IRS has caught on to this strategy.

    There’s no hard-and-fast method for distinguishing between a hobby and a real business just based on the tax return. After all, the tax return is just a piece of paper, and so there’s no way to tell a legitimate business from a hobby apart except by using a rule of thumb.

    Hobby Loss Rule of Thumb.
    If a business reports a net profit in at least 3 out of 5 years, it is presumed to be a for-profit business. If a business reports a net loss in more than 2 out of 5 years, it is presumed to be a not-for-profit hobby.

    This rule of thumb makes places a huge burden of proof on young businesses. On the one hand, the IRS expects new businesses to incur a loss. It is normal for a business to have a year or two of losses before becoming profitable. On the other hand, it is likely that a business could have several years of losses before ever making a profit. In fact, several such cases have been sent to the Tax Court.

    If you cannot meet the 3-out-of-5 year rule (3 years of profits in a 5-year period), you can still prove your profit motive using the following nine factors:

    You carry on the activity in a businesslike manner,
    The time and effort you put into the activity indicate you intend to make it profitable,
    You depend on income from the activity for your livelihood,
    Your losses are due to circumstances beyond your control (or are normal in the start-up phase of your type of business),
    You change your methods of operation in an attempt to improve profitability,
    You, or your advisors, have the knowledge needed to carry on the activity as a successful business,
    You were successful in making a profit in similar activities in the past,
    The activity makes a profit in some years, and how much profit it makes, and
    You can expect to make a future profit from the appreciation of the assets used in the activity.
    This list is found in IRS Publication 535 Business Expenses.

    An audit to defend your business losses can be a very expensive audit. If you lose, the IRS will disallow the loss. Your business expenses will be limited only to the extent of business income (which means zero profit). And you will have to re-calculate your tax liability, often meaning that you will have to repay some of your income tax, plus penalties and interest. The audit may also be a waste of time and money, since you will have to spend time fighting the IRS and paying an accountant, instead of focusing on making money.

    Nonetheless, defending your business loss is in your best interest, because creative professionals have succeeded in demonstrating a profit motive despite years and years of losses. First and foremost, you must carry on your freelance work in a very businesslike manner. This means keeping good records, keeping a business diary showing meetings with clients, deadlines, and projects, having business cards and a web site that promotes your business, and keeping a log of freelance gigs you apply for, and so forth. If you arrive at your audit armed with a daily planner showing all this information, it will be harder for the IRS to prove that you were just a hobbyist.

    August 7th, 2007 @ 10:20 pm

    In general, if your business activity is expected to generate losses for the foreseeable future, I recommend forming a partnership or an S-Corporation. Current losses will reduce current income on your 1040. Future profits, if any, will not be reduced by previous losses. In order to form a partnership, you will need at least two shareholders. This could be a spouse, significant other, or really any other person. And it doesn’t need to be 50-50. Your partner could own as little as 1% of the partnership.

  15. Danny
    August 7th, 2007 @ 10:21 pm

    Partnerships and S-Corps cannot retain their own profits or losses, and so the profit in year 3 cannot be reduced. That’s because the losses were already distributed to the shareholders. There is one significant audit risk with a partnership or S-Corp. It is assumed that the shareholder works for the S-Corp or partnership, and so the IRS expects part of the shareholder’s income will be taxable wages, and part will be profits from the business. In order to avoid an audit, Mary would have to pay herself a reasonable salary, and pay tax on the salary, even though the business isn’t making any money.

    August 7th, 2007 @ 10:24 pm

    Seems like you’ve got quite a bit of financial experience there. Are you auditioning to be my accountant or defending a particular point? Is Xyience a hobby now? I was just trying to show that Xyience was losing money long before I came along.

  17. Danny
    August 7th, 2007 @ 10:28 pm

    It is a very, very good thing that they are still losing money… that was my point… nothing bad about them losing 56 million last year

  18. Danny
    August 7th, 2007 @ 10:38 pm

    “Early marketing success is attributable to Xyience’s strategic partnerships with the UFC, Spike TV, MTV, VH1, The Fight Network, and several trade magazines worldwide. These brand alliances have allowed Xyience to quickly become one of the most sought after brands in the world today.”
    I guess that was what the 56 million was spent on… you have to spend money to make money… They taught me that in college.

  19. Danny
    August 7th, 2007 @ 10:54 pm

    The only reason I took the trouble to post on your blog is because you kept making it a point to make sure everyone was aware that Xyience lost 56 million, and “relies on regular multi-million dollar infusions of capital just to survive.” Again, please do research and post your finding on business profit and loss strategy… There is no conspiracy that I can see, 56 million is a lot of money, but all the same, Xyience is a big company… it comes with the territory.

  20. Danny
    August 7th, 2007 @ 10:56 pm

    To put it in proper prospective, Xyience losing 56 million, is like you or I losing a few bucks…

  21. rich.bergeron
    August 7th, 2007 @ 11:10 pm

    OK, so then by your logic $25 million is like a few pennies, so why are they trying to make a big deal out of me somehow causing them to lose that much if it’s so OK for them to lose money?

  22. rich.bergeron
    August 7th, 2007 @ 11:13 pm

    Also, the conspiracy is not just the fact that they lost money. You have to look at the whole series I’ve written. There’s a lot going on behind the scenes, a lot of overselling of Pre-IPO stock, and a ton of problems with the product itself. You seem to be harping on a point I only made to show that they lost money before my series was in print. I didn’t point that fact out because that’s my only evidence that there’s corruption going on.

  23. Danny
    August 8th, 2007 @ 9:34 am

    See Rich, there is a big difference in the loss… The money they claim you cost them is reputation and lost investment dollars… The loss I’m saying is good is the marketing loss, the 56 million… I am in no way saying the loss you caused them is a good thing. The loss they are claiming in the cause of auction that is presently before the bar, that loss is very, very bad for a company… And once a criminal always a criminal is what I’ve gathered from this series… Mr. Pike was a criminal back in the old days, so he must be a criminal today… that’s your logic, and Rich, to be quite honest, it hardly seems fair to me.

    August 8th, 2007 @ 3:56 pm

    If my logic were that loose I would not have written this series. I have presented direct evidence that Russell Pike formed Xyience after swindling John Scott out of his supplement company, and he didn’t even wait until he was off probation to set those wheels in motion. And I don’t know what you consider the old days. It’s not as if Pike went to jail 20 years ago and has had a clean record ever since. He has multiple bankruptcy cases on file along with two significant criminal cases in the last ten years. Besides that, Xyience and Pike have been involved in multiple recent lawsuits. Here are the official court papers to prove I have not misjudged this man:

    Pike’s 1999 Plea Deal for Money Laundering

    1997 ARRAIGNMENT PAPERS FOR CHECK FRAUD CHARGES

    PIKE AND XYIENCE LITIGATION HISTORY

    Anyone who looks at that track record would tell you there is a high likelihood that Russell Pike is not a reformed man.

  26. Danny
    August 8th, 2007 @ 4:51 pm

    August 8th, 2007 @ 7:39 pm

    What is this an MMA match, they’re going to put me in a rear naked choke? I don’t think so. I am not going to show up at any hearing until my motion is heard, and the motion itself qualifies as a special appearance. Interesting that you singled out the oldest record I presented of Pike’s criminal past. What about all those lawsuits?

  29. Danny
    August 8th, 2007 @ 10:01 pm

    You should show up and make your case… I agree with some of what you’re saying, but think you may be going about things the wrong way… you can’t win your case if you fail to show up for court. Xyience is guaranteed victory.

  30. Danny
    August 8th, 2007 @ 10:09 pm

    About those lawsuits… Remember, anybody can sue anyone for any reason… now winning is a different story. Mr. Pike has a great big target on his back; rich people get sued all the time… The latest get rich quick scheme: Lawyer up and sue someone… I’m sure the majority of those lawsuits against Mr. Pike are bogus, and or settled in Mr. Pike’s favor.

  31. rich.bergeron
    August 8th, 2007 @ 10:36 pm

    Danny, my latest motion to dismiss qualifies as a special appearance, because it is basically arguing it would be a significant financial burden on my part to expect me to go to Nevada to defend this suit. That means I don’t have to appear until at least after the motion has been heard, and only then if my motion is denied. If I appear in Nevada before that motion is heard, I am basically submitting to their jurisdiction, which I don’t plan to do. As for the suits against Xyience and Pike, maybe one or two lawsuits wouldn’t raise an eyebrow, but when you’re being sued by big corporations as well as individuals, you have to believe there’s a great deal of validity to those claims. Especially when Xyience has settled out of court in some cases already and actually had their lawyers resign in the Phoenix Labs case.

  32. Danny
    August 8th, 2007 @ 10:40 pm

    Do you know why their lawyers resigned?

  33. rich.bergeron
    August 8th, 2007 @ 10:49 pm

    Well, some employees also resigned right around the time they were supposed to be deposed. It was a very strange set of circumstances in that case. I’m sure you know why they resigned, so why don’t you tell us.

    Come on Danny, you are totally toeing the company line here. You obviously act like you think Xyience and Russell Pike are the greatest thing sinced sliced bread. Might you have a connection somewhere? Maybe you are a significant shareholder or employee, and either way if you don’t know why those lawyers packed their briefcases and went home, you should do some research. I’m a very objective person who looks at things beyond their face value and respects the facts. You better believe that when I present a point I have the particular evidence to back it up. You come on here and spout Xyience propoganda betraying your unquestioning allegiance to them. I’ll be the first to admit that Xyience once had some great potential and their affiliation with the UFC and support of fighters has always been admirable, but that does not excuse the corruption behind the scenes. I know the truth hurts, but you are going to have to swallow it eventually, so you ought to take the pill now and get it over with.

  36. Peter Pike
    August 9th, 2007 @ 8:26 am

    For those of you who are defending Xyience in your comments above it is obvious that you are connected to Xyience.. There is an on going investigation with Federal Authorities. I have personally spoken to them, why? Because they have contacted me. The State of California is going after the “PIKE”. He is going down and there will be no plea deals this time. Russell is trying to clean up what he has done, however that will not matter this time. He has violated his agreements with the Judicial Authorities. I will visit hime when he is in prison. I hope all of you do!!!! Good luck Russell…. Rich you will prevail.. Hang in there…

  37. Danny
    August 9th, 2007 @ 8:47 am

    “Federal Authorities”… sounds serious. I’m not toeing any company line, just think Rich is being one sided here. I am a firm believer in innocent until proven guilty in a court of law, not the court of public opinion… hence my comment: Rich you should show up and defend your case in Nevada. If all this crap is true about Xyience and Mr. Pike, I will be the first in line to swallow the bitter pill, but until then I must wait until all this stuff winds through the courts.

  38. Danny
    August 9th, 2007 @ 8:51 am

    Oh, Danny boy, or should I called you Ronald McDonald? You are in line for the roller coaster but not tall enough to ride. Every time you think you are jabbing home a point you are only digging yourself deeper into a hole. I checked that link and surprise, surprise!! Yet another plaintiff filed suit against Xyience today. Also, I looked into the Bardo Equities case and found some great reading in the minutes. Turns out Xyience has failed to pay the structured settlement in that matter and the plaintiff has filed a motion to enforce the settlement. Are your sure the company you are up to bat for is going to have enough legal reps to come after me at full bore for much longer? I mean, to me it seems like they have quite a busy August. They’re making a call to the bullpen and nobody’s even warmed up. But seriously, don’t you have investors to recruit to get your 10% kickback? I don’t see how you have all this time to come on and rant and rave about how Xyience is going to overcome this little speed bump in their exalted history. Do you honestly expect anyone to believe you’re just some uninvolved party coming on here to post 12 times a day for the heck of it? When you come back to reality let me know. And remember, a thief by any other name is still a thief.

    Why don’t you fact check the post made by “Peter Pike”???? “Judicial Authorities??????” “Federal Authorities???” Sounds like he pulled that out of his ass… I went to google and found no record of a current investigation by “The State of California,” “Judicial Authorities,” or “Federal Authorities.” And is his real name Peter Pike??? I think we have a case of slander here… Everything I post can be verified on google.com… cant say the same for Peter Pike. Rich, please verify Peter’s outrageous claims.

  44. Danny
    August 9th, 2007 @ 3:20 pm

    Trace Peter’s IP address while you can, you may have to prove that it wasn’t you who posted that stuff. I would demand some kind of proof from Peter, as he has made some very serious statements, passing them off as factual and true…

    Danny, your intelligence must be limited to financial matters. What makes you think the government posts it on Google when they are doing an investigation? That would be pretty silly if all someone had to do to find out if they were being investigated is do a Google search. All your information is completely generic, so of course you can find it on Google. And you of all people shouldn’t talk about using fake names.

    Rich, your intelligence must be limited to wedding photography. You don’t seem very adept when it comes to legal matters… Do you really think you are going to beat Xyience in a court room??? The only place you could win is the court of public opinion, and anyone would look bad if they were getting the press coverage you give… really fair and balanced man…

  51. rich.bergeron
    August 9th, 2007 @ 9:41 pm

    Danny, I will beat Xyience without ever stepping into a courtroom. I am very adept at legal matters. I have been studying case files regarding Xyience for months now. I have also been involved in several other First Amendment case coverage while working for newspapers. And the fact that Xyience looks bad has less to do with my reporting and more to do with the reality of their position. I have had several people tell me over and over again that even GNC badmouths Xyience on a constant basis, and they have a business relationship going with Xyience. I think I have been more than fair in my reporting, as I have given Xyience officials numerous chances to be interviewed. Pete Rinato was the only one who came forward. Russell Pike repeatedly refused. I’ve called the other CEOs, too and received no response. The turnover in that position is ridiculous this year. How come they can’t find someone to stay on the job?

    For starters I tell the truth. I also Edit, write, and design this site. On the side I do other freelance writing and photography, which does include some weddings. I think it’s really funny how you try and use that as an insult as if wedding photography is a lowly, second-rate occupation. I do what I can and keep myself busy. There’s nothing wrong with that.

    OK, Ronald, that’s pretty funny coming from the master of giving himself away. Nobody ever claimed I ever worked at Xyience, and I don’t see how the fact that I never did gives you any more credibility. I bet you can legally say the same thing since you were just one of their many “consultants.”

    I found the following information at the National Burea of Economic Research Web-site:

    “What external control mechanisms are most effective in detecting corporate fraud? To address this question we study in depth all reported cases of corporate fraud in companies with more than 750 million dollars in assets between 1996 and 2004. We find that fraud detection does not rely on one single mechanism, but on a wide range of, often improbable, actors. Only 6% of the frauds are revealed by the SEC and 14% by the auditors. More important monitors are media (14%), industry regulators (16%), and employees (19%).”

    Danny, does it really matter how much money is involved? Isn’t corruption all the same no matter how deep it runs and how much money the culprit gets away with? Oh, and for the Interested Party, Danny is more than just Danny and David. He’s logged almost 60 comment posts on all the different stories under about 7 different names. But I’m the one who’s not telling the truth, right?

    Interesting BOYS??? Danny i.e. David you have some footing with Xyience to be in such a FRENZY over this! I’ve counted 29 comments from somebody that say’s he has nothing to do with Xyience. Innocent bystanders don’t take such an interest in such things, unless they have something to lose. Karma…its a @@tch! I guess the old saying is true, what comes around goes around. I believe Pike is chasing his tail! Truth always rises to the surface boys!

    August 10th, 2007 @ 1:18 pm

    The Mystery of Danny Boy is solved. Danny is indeed toeing the company line, which is more like walking a tightrope or a plank these days. Look at this previous post from him left on another story:

    “Rich, please stop this blog. I bought a lot of Xyience stock, over 500,000 shares, and I would like Xyience to go public so I can get my money back- and then some. Please don’t damage my chance of recovery because some guy came to you with a sob story and convinced you to write the article. Xyience has been very good to me, and others who benefited the good of the company.”

  73. rich.bergeron
    August 10th, 2007 @ 1:34 pm

    Here’s another interesting quotable from Friends of Chuck on Sherdog talking about how his own company bites the big one. Would you really want this guy in charge of a company you were invested in:

    “NO SHIT, IT SUCKS! I am one of the original founders of Xyience, and yes it sucks. WE grew too fast, that’s it in a nutshell…The sales were great, but if you can’t service the sales accounts properly, it’s a problem…The good thing is we fixed what was wrong and things are looking up! We are hitting profitability and our Xenergy drinks are the fasting growing energy drinks in the US…You know nobody cares about how much you lost your first big year if you make it all back within 2 years! That’s business my friend! Look at the UFC, they were getting killed too, now they are bank, they make more than Fort Knox in a year, so that’s how it works! Never easy, I’ve learned…

    Check out our Xenergy girls it’s unf’nbelievable!!!!!!”

    Someone should tell the head honcho that he’s supposed to be selling supplements, not spokesmodels.

  74. rich.bergeron
    August 10th, 2007 @ 1:40 pm

    I’d ask Mr. Pike to clarify what he means by “hitting profitability.” Since when does not paying bills and sinking the company in voluminous debt qualify as turning a profit? Since they have sued me claiming I alone have lost them $25 million, either this guy is totally lying or the lawsuit itself is making completely fraudulent claims. Either way, in Pike’s own words, “IT SUCKS.”

    I’ll be next in line to sue if my shares fail to go public, and it can somehow be traced to this blog. Rich, whats 1,225,000.00 x $20.00 ??? add that up, and post it. Remember that sum, those are the damages I will be seeking… The Xyience suit is just a warm up…

  78. David James

  79. Rich Bergeron
    August 11th, 2007 @ 7:51 am

    Oh, OK, so I’ve got you all wrong but you’re admitting now to being a major shareholder and hiding your identity? I fail to see how you could press a case while you are clearly lying through your teeth in all these previous comments claiming you’re just an outside party. Meanwhile I stand by everything I’ve written and put my real name on all of it. And if Xyience does not go public it will have nothing to do with this blog and everything to do with the activities of those on the inside who have destroyed whatever good name the company once had. If the company you invested in is so squeaky clean and on the up and up, why wouldn’t you shout from the rooftops and let everyone know who you really are? Why would you have to hide behind all these fake names and email addresses? Why would you be so afraid to admit you are an investor until after I discovered that fact on my own? Everyone seems to want to point the finger at me for their own problems. It’s not my fault you didn’t research the company you invested in properly, and it’s not my fault that the guy who built this thing has a criminal past and a history of corruption. If you want to sue someone, sue whoever sold you the stock.

  80. David James
    August 11th, 2007 @ 12:18 pm

    My stock is good, I have no problem with it, my problem is with a guy named Rich Bergeron. I have been talking to my lawyer, you are lucky so far. I’m not going to sue until if and when my name pops up in your blog. When it does, automatic lawsuit. I told you what my damages will be; you seem to think this is a big joke. If the share fail to go public as planned, I will also sue. You will need to take out a mortgage on your trailer, do a lot of weddings to pay for your legal bills. I will renew the judgments every year until the day I die. You will never own anther bank account or trailer, as long as I renew the judgments. There are more people than just me who stand to lose their life savings. The only class action lawsuit I see coming, is Xyience share holders against Rich Bergeron.

  84. Rich Bergeron
    August 11th, 2007 @ 1:11 pm

    I left off those comments, because I know who interested party is, and it’s not Bryant Rayford. You tend to spout off about things you have no knowledge of. For one, what makes you think I live in a trailer or even own any property? I have no money for you to try and come after. I have what most middle class Americans deal with on a daily basis: debt. That’s it. If you want to waste your time like Xyience and sue me, go right ahead. You can have your very own piece of my nothing. As I said before I do what I need to get by and don’t live any kind of lavish lifestyle. Remember whatever you do, it is you who have proven right here in front of everybody here at my site that you practice the art of deception and hide from the truth at every turn. On the other hand, I am the one hunting the truth down with every fiber of my being. Each and every day people try and come after me for doing my job and bringing facts to light they seem to get more and more caught up in their lies and their corrupt activities. Call it Karma or call it a case of what goes around comes around, but either way it’s all a matter of that old mantra “The truth will set you free.” I challenge you to find even one instance where I publicly state or write of any personal or malicious motivation to do damage in this case or fabricate the facts. That is what you will need to prove defamation. I’m sorry you feel the need to paint me as the enemy. Maybe that is just a reflection of your own personal weaknesses as a human being, but whatever your motivation I can clearly demonstrate that it stems from a wholly personal connection to Xyience that I can trace through your comments here. I have no reason to go after Xyience and no motive other than my duty to inform the public, which carries with it multiple protections up to and including the First Amendment of the U.S. Constitution. You are acting like a child here with your empty threats and baseless attacks. I am a professional and have vast amounts of experience in my field. I know what I’m doing, and I have compiled and collected all the facts and presented them. It’s funny how back when I started this series Xyience officials wanted to fly me out to their headquarters and shower me with connections and access in order to get me to obscure the real truth. Months went by and there was no mention of suing me until lo and behold the chance came along to get another $15 million infusion of capital which could only be guaranteed by the truth being stifled. For your own good, before you post your rants on here again find a fact or two to prove anything I’ve written is false, and maybe then someone might give you credit. Until then people will see you for what you really are: a whiner who can’t confront the truth, suck it up like a man, and move on admitting he made a mistake.

    Rich your delusions of grandeur and self aggrandizement throughout these articles and responses is hilarious. You’re not a journalist, and no credible print organization would ever buy a word of this, if for no other reason than the writing is amateurish. I know you believe in this cause greatly, and who knows you might even be right that some of the people involved have shady records and are involved in wrong doing, but you come across as crusading and single-minded and really should give this a rest before it consumes you.

    In the end, Mr. Pike has been caught before and imprisoned. If the lawsuits are as numerous as you maintain then the truth of all of this will come out in court and Mr. Pike will go back to jail, but nothing you write here is going to make any difference in those cases. What started out in the first article sounding like it might be some interesting facts about the people behind Xyience, has fallen apart into what sounds like the repetitive ramblings of someone on the verge of madness.

    Take a step back.

    I think my four aces beats your one of each kind there, bub

    So, you must imagine you are quite the sleuth. You have really found me out there. WOW!! You should work for the Central Intelligence Agency. You have pulled the sword from the stone, Arthur!! You may win a pulitzer prize for bringing up that link to my completely shady history. YOU FOUND OUT I AM A PAINTER IN ADDITION TO BEING A WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER AND A JOURNALIST??

    THIS IS YOUR EVIDENCE? And I suppose this makes me the ultimate liar that I can manage to learn the trades of painting, photography, writing, and, yeah, I even once worked as a SUBSTITUTE TEACHER!! Is everybody gasping in amazement yet? Is everybody shocked that I would attempt to write an investigative report about corporate fraud when I have such a horrible, nasty, illicit, and malicious history of WORKING FOR A DAMN LIVING??

    Yes, I am connected to that unsavory occupation of being a private contractor and applying primer and finish coat to about a hundred houses in my history, very devious behavior indeed. Shit, I think I even did sanding and powerwashing all over Cape Cod for a few summers. I am such a damn scam artist for engaging in such labor that people paid for. I feel so guilty I need to confess. I think the FBI needs to come in on this one.

    You are correct sir. Bravo. I bow to your superiority for discovering my ultimate, fatal flaw.

    May I remind you that, on the other hand, YOU are admittedly “linked” to what’s going on. You know all about it and still try to conceal it and protect it from seeing the light of day and being accepted for what it really is. Because you want to make MONEY. Meanwhile, Xyience’s own court paperwork makes the ominous assumption that my site makes absolutely no revenue. Thanks for the audit, Xyience. Can I bring your proof of that to the IRS?

    And therefore, I think your deuces should have ended up in the dealer’s hands long before you pressed this little pissing contest. Almost 80 posts after you started here, your weak stream is not looking very impressive to anyone and is actually losing you more respect to the point where you would have been better off not trying to make a point at all. You should have just kept your piece in your pants on this one, bub.

    Haven’t you ever heard that Kenny Rogers song? I think it goes a little sumthin’ like this:

    “Ev’ry gambler knows that the secret to survivin’
    Is knowin’ what to throw away and knowing what to keep.
    ‘Cause ev’ry hand’s a winner and ev’ry hand’s a loser,
    And the best that you can hope for is to die in your sleep.”

    When he’d finished speakin’, he turned back towards the window,
    Crushed out his cigarette and faded off to sleep.
    And somewhere in the darkness the gambler, he broke even.
    But in his final words I found an ace that I could keep.

    You got to know when to hold ‘em, know when to fold ‘em,
    Know when to walk away and know when to run.
    You never count your money when you’re sittin’ at the table.
    There’ll be time enough for countin’ when the dealin’s done.
    chorus x3″

    Boy that chorus sure does sound like a metaphor. You hold onto those cards you’ve got there. They may be worth something someday.

All you can come up with is crap. I have presented the facts, and I have not even attempted to sell this to any magazine or publisher of any kind. I don’t need to. Enough of the educated public and MMA fan base can see it here, so change will follow. And if I am on the verge of madness then you must be on the verge of brain dead.

    Rich, David James is an idiot. The only thing he CAN do with his Xyience shares of worthless stock is wipe himself, after he plays with himself. I can’t believe that Xyience would even want to be associated with a LOSER like him…I forgot they did get tired of his ass and told him to find an office somewhere else. I just had dinner with David and Jackie Siegel in Florida. They told me that Jackie was once married to a nut ball that sounds just like this guy! Jacqueline said it was the biggest mistake of her life. Maybe “David James” can start a Las Vegas most beautiful people business, so he can take advantage of stupid girls from Pennsylvania, who think he is somebody important and will sleep with him, that is the only way he can get any girls. All that money and he doesn’t have any friends. How miserable he must be…why do you think he spends all his time on this site, because he is a LOSER and nobody likes him! David, I saw your blonde bimbo “girlfriend” last week and guess what? She was kissingand ear pulling on some guy and it wasn’t you! Your being used and as she as shee is done with your sorry ass, is dumping you. I bet you haven’t gotten any from her in awhile have you? Loser get a life and while you are at it..buy yourself a new blow up doll, your old one must be getting pretty dirty by now.

    Rich, keep on trucking man…you got Xyience exposed BIGTIME! They will never go public with all of the corruption, and investigations.

    David, Danny, or whoever you are. You have obviously no grasp on reality. When the smoke clears, I will still be standing. What you don’t realize and fail to even acknowledge is that Xyience’s lawsuit against me only further elucidates my story. When I come out on top after presenting the evidence and showing their lawyer misrepresented every bit of their own “evidence” I will be in a much better position to write a full length non-fiction book on the whole experience. Why don’t you do Google searches on “Xyience” and “Xyience, Inc.” Before the lawsuit emerged, my stories were in much lower positions in the rankings. Now they are creeping up to the top. Your own commenting here multiple times per day actually helps this story gain higher search engine ranking. This is why I mentioned in the above story that there is a certain reward to investigative journalism in that when you know you have the truth and are in a position to inform the masses, those who try to hide that truth will play right into your search to find it. By trying to defend themselves, Xyience is hurting themselves, because they have no legitimate defense. Their lawsuit is garbage. Since the lawsuit has been filed I have obtained more proof of their slanderous attacks on ME, and I have uncovered much more evidence to present to the judge handling this case that will completely exonerate me. Furthermore, I am now at a point where I have no real interest in simply writing about this whole mess. No, it’s much too late for that to be useful anymore. At this stage it is really time for government agencies to step in and do their jobs. In my next motion I am going to suggest that the case be graduated to the criminal court system and that Xyience be put under the microscope of the justice system. I will submit all my evidence to the proper authorities including IP addresses, hundreds of hours of recorded conversations, court documents, notes, applicable links and emails, and anything else I have compiled so that it is used to inspire what I have always set out to do in this series: clean up the corruption in this sport. Obviously since you are now repeating yourself, I think we are done here.

    I still don’t see any PROOF. Mancino, weren’t you the one claiming you had nothing to do with Xyience a while back, just a neutral party you claimed. Now you know all the principles. Funny how a little $25 million bogus lawsuit brings all the scum out to play. You guys just don’t get it, do you? Just when you think folks can’t get any dumber. Keep it up, chumps. Maybe we can get this bad boy up to 200 comments by the end of the week.

    Richy boy,
    I do see the proof: your sources are crooks, just like those you accuse. Lawrence aka (NEIBER) likes to violate restraining orders stating he must stay at least 1000 yards from a person. He comes on this blog, admits to a crime, and you still let him post and you continue to give him street cred. Got (NEIBER) on tape AGAIN.

    August 13th, 2007 @ 11:08 am

    You bring out the best in everyone Rich– you got my attention when you insulted me from day one. Suggesting I had some bullshit relation with Neiber’s ex wife. Chump? You’re the two pump chump here. From what I heard your motion was rejected. It appears that jurisdiction is in Nevada. So, I guess you will get your day in court finally!? This is what you have been wanting, right. But now it is poor Rich, “I don’t have anything; I am a poor struggling artist…” Is that artist like painting houses or taking pictures? No? Maybe artist meaning: lame bleeding heart poetry. What will be your next profession?

  128. Jason Mancino

    August 13th, 2007 @ 11:23 am

    My motion was not rejected. It is up for hearing on September 6. Keep guessing on my sources. You haven’t got one right yet. It’s funny how you guys think a couple insulting, baseless comments are going to erase months worst of investigating on my part. It’s even funnier how you try to discredit me by telling everyone how many jobs I have. That’s cool, make fun of me because I work for a living and earn an honest wage. Sorry I’m not like the cool kids who support criminal enterprises and make money by sitting on their asses. I actually lift a finger to make a paycheck.

  131. Jason Mancino
    August 13th, 2007 @ 12:09 pm

    No attempt to discredit anything, just a comment on what a joke you are. You and your life are a joke. Where did I mention a source?? You sure are protective about that. I just know when Neiber puts a comment here. He is just dumb to the point of not knowing that people have their eyes on him as he is the ACTIVE criminal here. You are just right behind him because you ignore the fact of who and what he has and is doing. If you wanted to have any credit you would have at the least researched this person since he keeps coming up ANYWAY. Interesting that you do not want to or at the least act like you do not want to know anything about him. Even though you keep CLAIMING that he is not a source of yours when he clearly has provided you with a lot of “bullshit,” including pictures, name and email addresses. Even IF it was done under a factious name or email you still should have took the time to know all of the players in your “story.”

    You keep harping on the fact of the “criminals,” but you fail to do your own investigation on one of the most wildly mentioned participants in this… WAIT!!! What if this makes sense!! No, you wouldn’t even bother to acknowledge the fact that there might even be a person who is deemed “worse,” than Pike himself.

    Last I checked a person is innocent until proven guilty. Well, what will you write when the court convicts Neiber on extortion?? EXTORTION of the same company that he attempted to sue. You discredit your self by not covering all sides of this story and by denying a connection or knowledge of this person. No Rich, you do this all on your own.

  132. rich.bergeron
    August 13th, 2007 @ 2:27 pm

    Jayson, there you go again with no proof. You can claim all you want, speculate as much as you want, dance around the facts however you can, paint someone else as the real culprit. The fact remains that all I used in my story series that had any minute connection to Neiber was his lawsuit, and even in presenting that I included Xyience’s responses among the documentation I posted. I have not quoted him in any of my stories, because I have not talked to him. Even so, it seems like everyone is on a mission to smear the guy and connect him to me, even to the point of trying to publish blogs that say he and I are gay lovers. I have never stooped to that level of calling people cocksuckers, because I operate in the scope of having to prove what I write or face a legitimate lawsuit. How the heck am I gonna prove you’re a cocksucker if I wanna call you one? I know the laws of libel, I know the laws of slander, and I took great care to make sure I reported the facts. I PUT MY NAME ON IT ALL. Don’t you think I knew someone could sue me if I wasn’t telling the truth? I am way ahead of all of you. I knew someone would eventually try to sue, and when that was first threatened at the beginning I told your pals to GO AHEAD AND SUE ME. I have never been happier to be sued. This gives me a chance to prove in an official court of law that there is absolutely nothing anyone can bring forward to show I have done a single thing wrong in this case.

    I gave the officials at Xyience multiple chances to clear their names. The revolving door kept spinning and nobody was even there long enough to respond, even if they wanted to. Pike himself just ignored me or brushed me off. Then he decided to try to bribe me. Any reporter in that scenario would have realized there was something worth looking into. You guys keep thinking you know who I’ve talked to, that you’ve figured it all out, but you have yet to mention the names of the real people behind this, people you would never expect in a million years. These people are in the best position to know what’s going on and have the most impeccable credentials, which is why I have not been able to reveal their names. In addition to wanting to keep their positions within the inner circles of it all, they are also worried about the legitimate death threats going around. Just about every source who has gone on the record with me has been threatened. The way you are acting here, trying to defend yourself by questioning my credibility and ignoring the facts I’ve presented, is the way an animal backed into a corner acts. I know this because I’ve been there before with other crooked people watching them do the same things all of you are doing right now. It’s called damage control, and people who rush to do it always make mistakes. I knew by writing this story you would all be clamoring to get a word in. You would all reveal your true intentions along with your IP addresses. I knew you would all fill up the comment section with crap, proving to the general public that you’re a bunch of amateur bullshit artists who never had any evidence in the first place. You thought you could manufacture some or have a high-powered lawyer draw it up to look like there was some actual evidence when there ain’t a fiber of it.

    Make the person trying to expose you for what you really are look like something he’s really not, that was always your main tactic. That’s all you’re doing, and it’s lame, because you’re clearly grasping for any little fact you can find to try and twist in your favor. Each and every time I tell you to prove it, you just come back with more insults and uneducated, assinine comments like “Yeah, well, you write poetry.”

    The fact is you cannot find one tiny little shred of evidence that I ever had anything personal against Xyience or that I maliciously targeted anyone, or even that I did anything wrong. You all thought you could make me spend more money than I had by sicking a lawyer after me. Little did you know I’ve read enough court documents in my day to easily defend myself in a court of law. Maybe you’re trying to get me to stoop to your level, make me fly off the handle and call you names so you can prove I’ve slandered you. It’s not going to happen. All I can report is that you and your buddies on here have continuously represented yourselves as neutral parties and then when the shit hits the fan you’re on here admitting you’re connected to the company I’m investigating. How much do you stand to gain? How many stock options have you been promised? I suspected from the very beginning you were connected, and you basically just admitted you are. Your friends have done everything from threaten to have me arrested to trying to offering to fly me out there so they could get the whole thing swept under the rug. Pete Rinato was the only one among you who had the balls to submit to an interview.

    You just keep continuing to lie, and I’ll keep catching you in them. I can play this game all day. You lie about stuff that can be easily checked and proven to be a lie. Then you point at me and say I’m lying when there’s nothing you have or anyone else has that can prove it. It’s completely and utterly foolish, and you just make it worse with every post. This is exactly what I was talking about in the above story. I TOLD you what would happen and what you guys would do in the heat of the moment, and instead of heeding the warning or getting a clue, you just did what I said you would do. In fact, you’re still doing it. You can’t get enough of continuously incriminating yourselves and making your position worse with every post. Give me more. Get it all out. I know you’ve got more than that. Let me have it! Say whatever’s on your mind. my comment section is your comment section. Make yourselves at home and stay as long as you like, because this stuff is so good it’s like you’re paying me rent to squat here on my story.

  133. Jason Mancino
    August 13th, 2007 @ 3:30 pm

    No stock options here… I was not suggesting or attempting to supply any proof. I just dont like you. Simple as that. Bottom feeding is your special gift. You suggested things to me that where untrue and that is my motivation. By the way, one second you are suggesting that you will never end up in court and you never where going to and then you say you have always wanted this and are ready for it?? So, what will it be.

  134. rich.bergeron
    August 13th, 2007 @ 3:46 pm

    Xyience can bring the case to me in Massachusetts any time they want, but since it looks like there’s been a quick decision in the case, I am inclined to believe that favors me and a lack of jursidiction in Nevada. Next time they are going to have to try a little harder.

  135. rich.bergeron
    August 13th, 2007 @ 4:03 pm

    Hey Mancino, that’s pretty funny you calling me a bottom feeder. Last time I checked I wrote the story at the top of this page, and you were commenting on the bottom of it.

  136. Jason Mancino
    August 13th, 2007 @ 4:12 pm

    Two things- As far as I heard the decision from last week kept the case here??! Second- you did not really just write that “bottom,” comment!? That has to be the weakest joke I have ever read. See, you are a joke. Above is not a “story,” it is a personal statment of “oh big bad company picks on lil ol me.”

  137. rich.bergeron
    August 13th, 2007 @ 4:23 pm

    Yeah, well, you certainly seem to be pretty damn concerned about the whole thing to keep posting. And I don’t know how you could have heard anything, because the decision is not yet published. And as far as what you’ve got in the quotes at the end there, that’s the most accurate statement you’ve made yet. Give yourself a pat on the back for that one. See, you can tell the truth if you try hard enough.

    Hey boogeron,
    It will be proven, you ever heard of an IP trace??? I know you have, you keep threatening everyone who posts on this blog… Were you smart enough to use a proxy??? Oops, you just committed an “aww shit.”

  150. David James
    August 14th, 2007 @ 7:59 pm

    boogeron,
    I’m going to give you an education on this matter:

    IP traceback is a name given to any method for reliably determining the origin of a packet on the Internet. The datagram nature of the Internet makes it difficult to determine the originating host of a packet – the source id supplied in an IP packet can be falsified (Internet protocol spoofing) allowing for Denial Of Service attacks (DoS) or one-way attacks (where the response from the victim host is so well known that return packets need not be received to continue the attack). The problem of finding the source of a packet is called the IP traceback problem. IP Traceback is a critical ability for identifying sources of attacks and instituting protection measures for the Internet. Most existing approaches to this problem have been tailored toward DoS attack detection. Such solutions require high numbers of packets (tens of thousands) to converge on the attack path(s). By nature, a solution requiring large packet volume is specifically targeted toward DoS attacks and tend to be probablistic in nature.

    A brute force solution to traceback can be obtained by having every router mark every packet as it passes through it. An alternative brute force solution requires every router to keep a record of every packet that passes through it. Such solutions are infeasible because: (1) they require a large and unbounded space in each packet (or router); (2) they require a large overhead at every router. Thus, most existing approaches to traceback attempt to reduce the above two effects.

    IP Traceback was first suggested by Savage et al and later added to by many others.

    Of the approaches described, some are probabilistic, and a few are deterministic. Some try to store information about packets in routers along the way, and some try to store information in the packet in either the fragment id field or the options field.

  151. David James
    August 14th, 2007 @ 8:07 pm

    ATTN anyone from Xyience who dares to stand up to Boogeron, and post on this blog: Use a proxy. Boogeron is going to turn over your IP address to the authorities… He is getting very desperate, also vowing to trace all IP address of anyone posting on this blog. The best way to thwart Boogeron’s efforts is to use a proxy server before you post:
    Anonymizing proxy server
    A proxy server that removes identifying information from the client’s requests for the purpose of anonymity is called an anonymizing proxy server or anonymizer.

    Why is it that you guys are so knowledgeable about how to HIDE things? I mean, IP address or not, you are still just making a fool of yourself by proving you know how to launch attacks from the shadows and are even proud of it. I don’t care who you are. All I know is I can tell every comment you made on here from the IP address you used from the very beginning, before you knew you needed a proxy. That’s how I know you used 7 different names. So, use whatever address you want. I’ve already got what I need to send to the authorities, and why warn everybody about me sending things to the authorities if nobody at Xyience has done anything wrong? That sounds a little paranoid coming from a guy who maintains he’s the innocent one and I’m the crook. How come I can use my own name and you can’t if you’re such a golden boy? And as for the cartoon, think what you want, it’s really not me. And if it was, I bet you would think that is your smoking gun since you can’t find anything to legitimately challenge anything I’ve written. You are really only digging the hole deeper for yourself.

    Ha ha. Sounds like someone’s a bit nervous. For one, if I report your IP address to the authorities, you will never know about it. For another, your threats just prove you’ve got something to hide, which we knew already.

    I agree with Alfredo. You need to get on with your life Rich.

    If Pike is not with Xyience anymore and if new investors want to get in, then Xyience will succeed.

    They are hooked up with the UFC and that is a big plus for future marketing.

    You should drop this rant. You are really starting to sound childish.

    August 15th, 2007 @ 8:59 pm

    You already posted a warning for me. And as far as privacy, if you wanted privacy you wouldn’t have posted so many times on a public blog.

    Then you know I have the resources to sue you.

  194. rich.bergeron
    August 15th, 2007 @ 9:46 pm

    Money can’t buy truth, Dude, and I have truth on my side. What are you going to sue me for? Even if you do sue me, I can submit this blog as evidence and prove that you continuously lied about your connection to Xyience and tried to hide your identity. You have already demonstrated that the only evidence you can come up with about me is that I’ve got more than one job. You gonna sue me for being gainfully employed?

    David James is sure full of himself. In his egoic mind, seems to be where considerable dysfunction has set in. I see someone who is frightened, insecure and trying desperately to have people believe that he is important. Rich, you should feel sorry for David, he probably has no real friends and the only ones he does have, only put up with his disguise because he has some money. What a shallow existence of a human being. Could you imagine being married to a LOSER like him and have to wake up every morning listening to his narcassistic bullshit. If he does have a wife, she must be more dysfunctional than he is to marry someone like that. She is probably just in it for the money, either way she has to sleep with him and that alone must be humiliating in itself. Could you imagine how disgusting that is!

    “Ed Says:

    June 24th, 2007 at 10:03 pm
    This is the same Mark Neiber I knew, he was a drug dealer in San Diego. He’s a big guy, on drugs all the time and totally full of himself. Ten years ago, he as abusing and cheating on his wife and she left. When she did, he went off the deep end. As Reggie says, he called up a guy she new and said he’d kill him, all because he thought he guy was helping his poor wife. Mark even called all her customers and told them that she had AIDS and not to come to her shop. After that Mark Neiber attacked another guy in a bar with a glass and beat him over and over in the face. They sent Mark to prison for that. I heard that when he got out he went both ways, moved to a gay section back in San Diego and started doing drugs again and cheating and using other people. Now he got arrested again. He deserves to be in prison. That’s where an animal like Mark Neiber should be, away form normal good people.”

    Check out what others are saying about Boogeron:
    http://fightzoo.com/index.php?cmd=/public/blog/view/id_56/
    I think it is an oversimplification to label Bergeron as “crazy” as this implies to many that he is also stupid or inferior in some way. In fact, he is very dangerous to the people he dislikes. It should be fairly easy to show that Bergeron’s behavior is one of an obsessive person who feels no compassion for anyone, will use any trick or dirty tactic, shows no remorse or feeling for his victims, feels justified in his campaign, will spend an unbelievable amount of time and energy (unpaid) devoted to destroying anyone that gets in his way; he won’t give up ever, unless he is made to, and his unbelievable attention and energy directed at someone else or made to by the court system or the law. He is clever, devious, and will use every trick in the book to reach his goal, which is constantly morphing. His personality/psychological problems are consistent with his aggressive ranting and raving actions. This is consistent with his personality problems, which allow him to take a inch and get a mile, so to speak, with a cause he decides to go all in on, and fight to the bitter end. He self-justifies his behavior and is clearly paranoid and defiant of societies norms…He absurdly refers to himself as a “journalist” seeking the truth, exposing wrongs. This is simply a smokescreen for what his real goals are to destroy his “enemies” and the other wronged parties, all for his personal satisfaction, his delusions.
    Ok, so the fact that he attended the Air Force Academy in Virginia shows he is very intelligent, but not necessarily sane or able to get along with others or society…In fact, in my personal experiences, I have found that many men that were in the military were unable to mix into normal society because many tend to be “hardcore”, rigid, ritualistic, “standoffish”, defiant, power-hungry, unsociable around normal people, unable to take orders from those they didn’t see as a “superior”, at times outcasts, pure and utter failures at getting along with others not of their ilk…Now, this may be a generalization, but it is consistent with his personality as I see it. He feels he is an outsider, and doesn’t get the respect he deserves, so he takes what he feels is his, and he is clearly very aggressive and enjoys a “good fight” (he mentions so much many times, in fact, challenging parties involved to a fight anytime he says, as he is a fighter in training he says. In other words, his people skills are those of a thug, and in my opinion, he has become increasingly distant from society and more hardcore and violent, less of a “journalist” with ethics as he has thrown those out the window to get what he wants, self-recognition in his own little world where he is very important (in his imagination)…
    One of his MMA sites is the following, just showing how strange this guy is, he created a huge website as a profile on a fight site. This site URL is: http://fightclubonline.com/profile.php?sub_section=username &id=Boxer_47
    This is must reading, as he shows many pictures and a lot about himself. This is interestingly only one of his several profiled sites. He interestingly enough hasn’t even logged into this site in almost 6 months, He has abandoned this site for a newer site MySpace site which is much more hardcore, and is clogged with so much junk that you can hardly navigate it: http://www.myspace.com/BUCKNAKED47, adding to a picture of an obsessed person.
    THIS WAS TAKEN FROM HIS SITE. Bergeron just happens (of all things!) to be a clever and devious webmaster, a frustrated writer, has a bone to pick with a lot of people or society in general, is obviously mentally ill to a point (to be determined), and is very clever and resourceful! He has spent I figure at least between 600 to 1000 hours in his campaign against us, spent in chatrooms, calling his “sources” whom he networks with, thru phone and email communications; he recruits sources from those who hate us, disgruntled ex-workers, those in lawsuits, ex-partners and ex-business associates who have a bone to pick; spies he recruits; email blasts of company rosters and others obtained from within his networks; “sources” he offers anonymity so they can get their 10 cents in, or anonymously attack us, even though their identities are usually obvious as Bergeron can’t help himself by letting it out; designing websites against us; threading chatrooms and fight sites with his ideas and advertising his sites for unique hits and to cause overall trouble for Xyience and damaged parties by seeding the clouds, so to speak, with rumor, innuendo, outright lies, slander, etc; using both Google free webmaster tools and free WordPress OS blogging software and plugins; creating and distributing throughout the internet videos of Xyience to defame, make fun of, slander, libel, etc using YouTube, Yahoovideo, Break.com, MySpace, and other sites he can add it to including his threads; creating a radio spot blog which he tried to put all over the place on the net, chat rooms, his website, other places he identified as useful to his campaign against Xyience, Russell Pike …
    If he were to be paid for a “positive PR” campaign on the up and up, at the amount of energy and time for one person to do this, I figure the amount of money he could charge would be 1000 hours X $35 an hour would be $35,000. You can tweak the numbers, but figure Bergeron has spent about between $20,000 and $60,000 of man hours of his own time and energy to engage his campaign of terror against Xyience, Russell Pike , and the other damaged parties…This cannot in any way be considered an act of “journalism” or of normality! And this backs up my assertion that he is doing all of this because of his mental illness clouding his own suspect judgment. I wonder if he was ever sane, however now as he gets older he is clearly getting worse. And he adds a twisted sense of “justice” and self-congratulatory patting himself on the back, for his actions by saying repeatedly that he isn’t getting paid for any of this exhaustive and obsessive “work” and that this proves his “love” for journalism and seeking out the truth and exposing corruption and inequity.
    And for all these reasons, any court should put a stop to this! He cannot hide behind the “first amendment rights” and “freedom of the press” for what he is doing.
    ====>My favorite maxims are: “You can do anything if you put your mind to it” and “Never give up! My goal in life is to help others and be remembered as an honest and giving person.

    He most likely suffers from one or several personality disorders, with some traits of several of the disorders. Personality traits are enduring approaches to the world expressed in how the person thinks, how he feels, and what he does. Traditionally they have been viewed as unconscious processes. When traits become rigid, dysfunctional, and cause distress in self and others they may be diagnosed as a personality disorder.
    I’d say this study into his personality is relevant because this man is not merely an inquisitive reporter who is “trying to dig up the truth” as he likes to say. He started this campaign of terror against us in January or earlier it appears, and has completely been obsessive in spending a huge amount of unpaid time in harassing us, designing sophisticated websites, engaging a campaign of threading and blogging against us, confiding in and working with a known criminal (Mark Neiber) who directs him on what to say and do (which a credible reporter would never let himself fall for, this person is much more than a “source”, he is a mentor, confidant, and partner in this slander.)
    His personality problems are now our problem! His personality problems are not bad enough that he needs to be psychiatrically hospitalized, but clearly is on the borderline of fantasy and reality. He has a paranoid viewpoint. He is too manipulative to be a successful journalist, as evidenced by his lack of stable employment in that industry (his website on Myspace details the multiple newspapers he worked for, moving around from paper to paper for no real justifiable reason, except that he may not be able to get along with others, and this would be typical in the paranoid person). He has been caught lying many times to get information he desires, almost like a detective with a license to say and do whatever to get ahead on his story. He is grandiose. He has been heard by me on a voicemail he thought was going to Andrew Kriechbaumer (I saved it), and he clearly is manipulative in tone, directive, uses pressured speech, sounds self-important, etc. He clearly is menacing in tone as well, threatening not to “expose” Andrew if he calls “and gives his side of the story” otherwise he “will run what he has and this can’t be stopped”. It sounds like a bad detective using license to lie and manipulate in search of the story he wants to hear. Well, it shows that Rich Bergeron is not simply a reporter calling to confirm sources or stories, he is much too rigid, focused, and has strange mannerisms to be a normal reporter. Because of his odd behavior, I bet his work history is filled with conflict, fighting with others at work, rigidity, and unprofessionalism. This has to be a reason he is unemployed and “seeking employment” as a reporter again he says. He tended to work at small non-descript newspapers, and with his iron-grip focus and passion, he could not be able to work around normal people. He may have the skill set to be a news reporter, but his mannerisms and personality traits are dysfunctional, and he has shown to be way too aggressive and demanding to be around normal people, but he fits right in with his dealings with Mark Neiber who is easily tagged as being a sociopath or criminal deviant. The fact that he has blindly taken on Neiber’s cause without considering his negative profile shows his aggressiveness and lack of either ethics or a sense of sanity (I’d say the latter).
    The reason that figuring out his personality profile is so important is to be able to show a court or judge why Bergeron is so dangerous to Xyience and people he has targeted, his overly zealous passion towards his cause has morphed into a tirade against the damaged parties and he clearly shows a pattern of harassment of us, libel, defamation, and stalking. His stories as a set have no use other than to satisfy his urge to destroy us; his “expose” has no real market as a story, he can’t sell it to any reputable journalistic venue (Lord know he has tried!); his articles, postings, and websites are easily identified by his target audience as being SPAM, manipulative, non-journalistic, the rants and raves of a madman (these are all comments he got sent back from real UFC fight fans whom he assumed would latch onto his stories and demand more! Shows he is somewhat delusional and grandiose)…A court must be able to see that Bergeron cannot hide behind “freedom of the press” claims, that his style of “reporting” is a sham and not viable in any way. No normal journalistic venue would ever run this story for fear of libel claims, lack of clear proof, non-validity, non-professionalism, etc. The fact that Bergeron would continue to spend hundreds of hours chasing this story is clearly ridiculous and shows a pattern of delusional or obsessive thinking. His claim on a post that he welcomes a court of law to show the court how bad Xyience (and other damaged parties are) is absolutely ridiculous. He sounds grandiose and egotistical and self-important on that post. He would refuse normal legal counsel as he doesn’t need that, he would use the stage to go into even more sordid details of what he knows he says, and welcomes the opportunity. This shows more paranoid thinking, obsessive thinking, rigid thinking, and other dysfunctional thinking. In any court action he should be considered for an Independent Psychological or Psychiatric Exam to determine his competency and reveal his true reasons (not the weak excuse of being a “journalist” and to expose the story for the world, and to protect potential victims he says) for his smear campaign against Xyience and other damaged parties (Pike, Weldon, Solomon, A. Kriechbaumer, and many others)…
    He perhaps shows “Narcissistic Personality Disorder” in that he “reacts to criticism with feelings of rage, shame, or humiliation (even if not expressed)”…One can see his anger upon being jabbed at on posts to his threads by me and others. He becomes so angry that he fires off very long emotional and angry replies which leaves one almost breathless. He replies in a way which leaves him looking very unprofessional which he doesn’t seem to care about, as he is so anxious to get out his feelings of hostility about being criticized.
    2) He is interpersonally exploitive: takes advantage of others to achieve his own ends: notice the very manipulative voicemail left for Andrew Kriechbaumer. Notice his strange use of friends tools to latch onto anyone that views his stuff or reaches out to him. He then strangely says these people are all his “friends”, using these contacts as manipulation to raise his search engine rankings, showing he is both clever and manipulative. His high level of lack of ethics for his “reporting” is not consistent with a reputable and ethical journalist, another reason his website and blogs should not be considered journalism with its inherent protections against libel claims.
    3) Has a grandiose sense of self-importance, such as exaggeration of achievements and talents, expects to be noticed as “special” without appropriate achievements. This would be evidenced by his unreasonable display of his various short-term newspaper jobs as showing his prowess as a reputable journalist, which he clearly is not!
    4) Has a sense of entitlement: unreasonable expectation of especially favorable treatment. This would be evidenced by Bergeron’s belief that whatever tactics he uses against Xyience are both justified and legal, even if he has caused great damage to the company and its reputation, as well as the damaged parties.
    5) Lack of empathy: inability to recognize and experience how others feel. This would be evidence by his utter lack of concern or feeling about the tremendous damage he has caused Xyience and the damaged parties! He has no guilt or feeling of caution about the things he says and the way he present them, or the damage inflicted, except to express that “(he hopes to) destroy any shareholder value” for a shareholder or employee he sees not as a victim but as part of the enemy, a innocent casualty of war so to speak, collateral damage which is acceptable in his eyes in order to satisfy his prime objective, that of destroying Xyience and the damaged parties, mostly Russell Pike , whom he has a special hatred of (even though he has never actually met or talked with him, and he shows no personal involvement with ever, other than what he perceives in his mind)…This shows some manner of psychopathology.
    6) Is preoccupied with feelings of envy: His diatribe against Xyience, Russell Pike , Dana White, the UFC, and others reveals his inner hatred towards anything he is jealous of, as he clearly shows in his stories a theme of desiring to destroy any successes of these parties. This is not journalistic ethics at all, but a twisted version of journalism that he uses as justification for his smear campaign…this shows his deviousness and obsession with this subject, not defensible as “journalism”.
    The person with a narcissistic personality disorder displays grandiosity about his importance and achievements. This grandiosity is unlike the delusions of grandeur seen in schizophrenia or bipolars…The grandiosity is somewhat based in reality but is distorted, embellished, or convoluted to meet the person’s needs of overvaluation of self-importance. For example, the person may say they were a star football player (or reporter for a newspaper or newspapers in his case), but doesn’t say the truth that he barely made the 2nd string high school team (or piddled around at various small-time newspapers doing nothing of importance and getting fired for reasons such as lack of journalistic credibility or ethics, for example…)
    The narcissistic person over evaluates himself, is arrogant, and seems indifferent to the criticism of others. Those around him are often seen as superior or inferior. The person has difficulty in knowing what is appropriate or inappropriate (or ethical) behavior. They are self-important.
    Mr. Bergeron also shows facets or traits of the following: Antisocial Personality Disorder – The main feature of antisocial is a pattern of the disregard of the rights of others that is usually demonstrated by the repeated violation of others’ rights (ours) in the form of unlawful (or unethical) behaviors, involving aggressive or illegal activities (his smear campaign). People with this disorder may appear to be charming and intellectual (Bergeron is to many charming and sneaky, as well as very clever and intelligent, and he gets what he wants)…They are smooth talkers and rationalize their (unethical or illegal) behavior. They recognize that they create hostility from others due to their behavior.
    (AND) Paranoid Personality Disorder (he questions without justification the loyalty or trustworthiness of his “sources” such as Mark Kriechbaumer & Mark Neiber who both clearly have ulterior motives and are using Bergeron for their own personal gain. Also, he bears grudges and is unforgiving of insults. He is easily slighted and quick to react with anger or to counterattack (note his rambling, profanity-laced, long and angry responses to posts by Ron Solomon, William Pike, John Chadwell, who were in many instances trying to get such a reaction out of Bergeron to have him make a mistake in strategy of disclosing his real sources or his real strategy of his smear and harassment campaign)…
    Persons with paranoid personality disorders are unable to laugh at themselves and are often humorless and serious (this is clearly the way Bergeron acts)…Speech is logical and goal directed, although the bases of arguments are false (enough said!)…They may appear to be cold and usually lack sentimental and tender feelings (this is noticeable as well in our dealings with Bergeron)…
    THESE EXCERPTS TAKEN FROM DSM-III-R mental health diagnostic criterion. I am not a mental health professional, but merely show patterns in Bergeron’s behavior, interactions with others, his rantings and ravings on his websites and blogs, his obsessive attention to details, his intense hatred for Xyience and the damaged parties even though none of us have ever met him or he has no claim to any damages from us. His behavior must be understood to see why he is doing all of this against the parties in the lawsuit.

    Hey Boogeron,
    is this really your myspace page?

    “One of Boogeron’s MMA sites is the following, just showing how strange this guy is, he created a huge website as a profile on a fight site. This site URL is: http://fightclubonline.com/profile.php?sub_section=username &id=Boxer_47
    This is must reading, as he shows many pictures and a lot about himself. This is interestingly only one of his several profiled sites. He interestingly enough hasn’t even logged into this site in almost 6 months, He has abandoned this site for a newer site MySpace site which is much more hardcore, and is clogged with so much junk that you can hardly navigate it: http://www.myspace.com/BUCKNAKED47, adding to a picture of an obsessed person.”

    “figure Bergeron has spent about between $20,000 and $60,000 of man hours of his own time and energy to engage his campaign of terror against Xyience, Russell Pike , and the other damaged parties…This cannot in any way be considered an act of “journalism” or of normality!”

    “I think it is an oversimplification to label Bergeron as “crazy” as this implies to many that he is also stupid or inferior in some way. In fact, he is very dangerous to the people he dislikes. It should be fairly easy to show that Bergeron’s behavior is one of an obsessive person who feels no compassion for anyone, will use any trick or dirty tactic, shows no remorse or feeling for his victims, feels justified in his campaign, will spend an unbelievable amount of time and energy (unpaid) devoted to destroying anyone that gets in his way; he won’t give up ever, unless he is made to, and his unbelievable attention and energy directed at someone else or made to by the court system or the law. He is clever, devious, and will use every trick in the book to reach his goal, which is constantly morphing. His personality/psychological problems are consistent with his aggressive ranting and raving actions. This is consistent with his personality problems, which allow him to take a inch and get a mile, so to speak, with a cause he decides to go all in on, and fight to the bitter end. He self-justifies his behavior and is clearly paranoid and defiant of societies norms…He absurdly refers to himself as a “journalist” seeking the truth, exposing wrongs. This is simply a smokescreen for what his real goals are to destroy his “enemies” and the other wronged parties, all for his personal satisfaction, his delusions.
    Ok, so the fact that he attended the Air Force Academy in Virginia shows he is very intelligent, but not necessarily sane or able to get along with others or society…In fact, in my personal experiences, I have found that many men that were in the military were unable to mix into normal society because many tend to be “hardcore”, rigid, ritualistic, “standoffish”, defiant, power-hungry, unsociable around normal people, unable to take orders from those they didn’t see as a “superior”, at times outcasts, pure and utter failures at getting along with others not of their ilk…Now, this may be a generalization, but it is consistent with his personality as I see it. He feels he is an outsider, and doesn’t get the respect he deserves, so he takes what he feels is his, and he is clearly very aggressive and enjoys a “good fight” (he mentions so much many times, in fact, challenging parties involved to a fight anytime he says, as he is a fighter in training he says. In other words, his people skills are those of a thug, and in my opinion, he has become increasingly distant from society and more hardcore and violent, less of a “journalist” with ethics as he has thrown those out the window to get what he wants, self-recognition in his own little world where he is very important (in his imagination)…
    One of his MMA sites is the following, just showing how strange this guy is, he created a huge website as a profile on a fight site. This site URL is: http://fightclubonline.com/profile.php?sub_section=username &id=Boxer_47
    This is must reading, as he shows many pictures and a lot about himself. This is interestingly only one of his several profiled sites.

    THIS WAS TAKEN FROM HIS SITE. Bergeron just happens (of all things!) to be a clever and devious webmaster, a frustrated writer, has a bone to pick with a lot of people or society in general, is obviously mentally ill to a point (to be determined), and is very clever and resourceful! He has spent I figure at least between 600 to 1000 hours in his campaign against us, spent in chatrooms, calling his “sources” whom he networks with, thru phone and email communications; he recruits sources from those who hate us, disgruntled ex-workers, those in lawsuits, ex-partners and ex-business associates who have a bone to pick; spies he recruits; email blasts of company rosters and others obtained from within his networks; “sources” he offers anonymity so they can get their 10 cents in, or anonymously attack us, even though their identities are usually obvious as Bergeron can’t help himself by letting it out; designing websites against us; threading chatrooms and fight sites with his ideas and advertising his sites for unique hits and to cause overall trouble for Xyience and damaged parties by seeding the clouds, so to speak, with rumor, innuendo, outright lies, slander, etc; using both Google free webmaster tools and free WordPress OS blogging software and plugins; creating and distributing throughout the internet videos of Xyience to defame, make fun of, slander, libel, etc using YouTube, Yahoovideo, Break.com, MySpace, and other sites he can add it to including his threads; creating a radio spot blog which he tried to put all over the place on the net, chat rooms, his website, other places he identified as useful to his campaign against Xyience, Russell Pike …
    If he were to be paid for a “positive PR” campaign on the up and up, at the amount of energy and time for one person to do this, I figure the amount of money he could charge would be 1000 hours X $35 an hour would be $35,000. You can tweak the numbers, but figure Bergeron has spent about between $20,000 and $60,000 of man hours of his own time and energy to engage his campaign of terror against Xyience, Russell Pike , and the other damaged parties…This cannot in any way be considered an act of “journalism” or of normality! And this backs up my assertion that he is doing all of this because of his mental illness clouding his own suspect judgment. I wonder if he was ever sane, however now as he gets older he is clearly getting worse. And he adds a twisted sense of “justice” and self-congratulatory patting himself on the back, for his actions by saying repeatedly that he isn’t getting paid for any of this exhaustive and obsessive “work” and that this proves his “love” for journalism and seeking out the truth and exposing corruption and inequity.
    And for all these reasons, any court should put a stop to this! He cannot hide behind the “first amendment rights” and “freedom of the press” for what he is doing.

    He most likely suffers from one or several personality disorders, with some traits of several of the disorders. Personality traits are enduring approaches to the world expressed in how the person thinks, how he feels, and what he does. Traditionally they have been viewed as unconscious processes. When traits become rigid, dysfunctional, and cause distress in self and others they may be diagnosed as a personality disorder.
    I’d say this study into his personality is relevant because this man is not merely an inquisitive reporter who is “trying to dig up the truth” as he likes to say. He started this campaign of terror against us in January or earlier it appears, and has completely been obsessive in spending a huge amount of unpaid time in harassing us, designing sophisticated websites, engaging a campaign of threading and blogging against us, confiding in and working with a known criminal (Mark Neiber) who directs him on what to say and do (which a credible reporter would never let himself fall for, this person is much more than a “source”, he is a mentor, confidant, and partner in this slander.)
    His personality problems are now our problem! His personality problems are not bad enough that he needs to be psychiatrically hospitalized, but clearly is on the borderline of fantasy and reality. He has a paranoid viewpoint. He is too manipulative to be a successful journalist, as evidenced by his lack of stable employment in that industry (his website on Myspace details the multiple newspapers he worked for, moving around from paper to paper for no real justifiable reason, except that he may not be able to get along with others, and this would be typical in the paranoid person). He has been caught lying many times to get information he desires, almost like a detective with a license to say and do whatever to get ahead on his story. He is grandiose. He has been heard by me on a voicemail he thought was going to Andrew Kriechbaumer (I saved it), and he clearly is manipulative in tone, directive, uses pressured speech, sounds self-important, etc. He clearly is menacing in tone as well, threatening not to “expose” Andrew if he calls “and gives his side of the story” otherwise he “will run what he has and this can’t be stopped”. It sounds like a bad detective using license to lie and manipulate in search of the story he wants to hear. Well, it shows that Rich Bergeron is not simply a reporter calling to confirm sources or stories, he is much too rigid, focused, and has strange mannerisms to be a normal reporter. Because of his odd behavior, I bet his work history is filled with conflict, fighting with others at work, rigidity, and unprofessionalism. This has to be a reason he is unemployed and “seeking employment” as a reporter again he says. He tended to work at small non-descript newspapers, and with his iron-grip focus and passion, he could not be able to work around normal people. He may have the skill set to be a news reporter, but his mannerisms and personality traits are dysfunctional, and he has shown to be way too aggressive and demanding to be around normal people, but he fits right in with his dealings with Mark Neiber who is easily tagged as being a sociopath or criminal deviant. The fact that he has blindly taken on Neiber’s cause without considering his negative profile shows his aggressiveness and lack of either ethics or a sense of sanity (I’d say the latter).
    The reason that figuring out his personality profile is so important is to be able to show a court or judge why Bergeron is so dangerous to Xyience and people he has targeted, his overly zealous passion towards his cause has morphed into a tirade against the damaged parties and he clearly shows a pattern of harassment of us, libel, defamation, and stalking. His stories as a set have no use other than to satisfy his urge to destroy us; his “expose” has no real market as a story, he can’t sell it to any reputable journalistic venue (Lord know he has tried!); his articles, postings, and websites are easily identified by his target audience as being SPAM, manipulative, non-journalistic, the rants and raves of a madman (these are all comments he got sent back from real UFC fight fans whom he assumed would latch onto his stories and demand more! Shows he is somewhat delusional and grandiose)…A court must be able to see that Bergeron cannot hide behind “freedom of the press” claims, that his style of “reporting” is a sham and not viable in any way. No normal journalistic venue would ever run this story for fear of libel claims, lack of clear proof, non-validity, non-professionalism, etc. The fact that Bergeron would continue to spend hundreds of hours chasing this story is clearly ridiculous and shows a pattern of delusional or obsessive thinking.

    Mr. Bergeron, I have not responded to any of your slanderous, libelous and criminal statements,nor have I responded to any of your “reliable convicted criminal sourses” slanderous, libelous and criminal comments since my comment #35 to your slanderous, libelous and criminal “THIS JUST IN…” arcticle of June 2, 2006. In my comment #35 I stated: “It is obvious that your lack of knowledge of corporate structure and finance extends even further to your lack of knowledge of civil and criminal law. You’re about to get an education.” Rich “I aviod service of legal documents” Bergeron, the fact that you stated that you had verified as authentic the fraudulent “John Miller” document concerning FBI and SEC investiagtions of a corporation and disseminated this document as verified and authentic is slander and libel. Your statement on 1/31/07 at 10:47 PST concerning this document: “I have verified both the Nevada district attorney the message was sent to and that John Miller and that agency does exist” and your statement on 12/10/2006: “The following message was sent to a Nevada District Attorney. We verified the email address and will be doing some research into the docket number in the days to come to find out more about this case” are both criminal acts at the State and Federal level.

    The only people commiting any slander are all you Vegas co-conspirators who would like what happens in Vegas to stay in Vegas. I’ve just filed over 100 pages of documented evidence of all your childish bull that includes no evidence whatsoever of me doing anything wrong. David, it’s good to see you are finally being honest by admitting that crap is slander, and I know you didn’t type it. That was William Pike, Russell’s brother. If I was as cruel as you guys I could come up with some rotten things to say about him, but I’m above that kind of assinine behavior. Keep leaving comments though. As long as this case against me stays in the system, I can always update my evidence. Both of you (if you are even two people) are leaving Las Vegas IP addresses, so it’s pretty obvious why you’re out to get me.

    1. Check out what others are saying about Boogeron:
    http://fightzoo.com/index.php?cmd=/public/blog/view/id_56/
    I think it is an oversimplification to label Bergeron as “crazy” as this implies to many that he is also stupid or inferior in some way. In fact, he is very dangerous to the people he dislikes. It should be fairly easy to show that Bergeron’s behavior is one of an obsessive person who feels no compassion for anyone, will use any trick or dirty tactic, shows no remorse or feeling for his victims, feels justified in his campaign, will spend an unbelievable amount of time and energy (unpaid) devoted to destroying anyone that gets in his way; he won’t give up ever, unless he is made to, and his unbelievable attention and energy directed at someone else or made to by the court system or the law. He is clever, devious, and will use every trick in the book to reach his goal, which is constantly morphing. His personality/psychological problems are consistent with his aggressive ranting and raving actions. This is consistent with his personality problems, which allow him to take a inch and get a mile, so to speak, with a cause he decides to go all in on, and fight to the bitter end. He self-justifies his behavior and is clearly paranoid and defiant of societies norms…He absurdly refers to himself as a “journalist” seeking the truth, exposing wrongs. This is simply a smokescreen for what his real goals are to destroy his “enemies” and the other wronged parties, all for his personal satisfaction, his delusions.
    Ok, so the fact that he attended the Air Force Academy in Virginia shows he is very intelligent, but not necessarily sane or able to get along with others or society…In fact, in my personal experiences, I have found that many men that were in the military were unable to mix into normal society because many tend to be “hardcore”, rigid, ritualistic, “standoffish”, defiant, power-hungry, unsociable around normal people, unable to take orders from those they didn’t see as a “superior”, at times outcasts, pure and utter failures at getting along with others not of their ilk…Now, this may be a generalization, but it is consistent with his personality as I see it. He feels he is an outsider, and doesn’t get the respect he deserves, so he takes what he feels is his, and he is clearly very aggressive and enjoys a “good fight” (he mentions so much many times, in fact, challenging parties involved to a fight anytime he says, as he is a fighter in training he says. In other words, his people skills are those of a thug, and in my opinion, he has become increasingly distant from society and more hardcore and violent, less of a “journalist” with ethics as he has thrown those out the window to get what he wants, self-recognition in his own little world where he is very important (in his imagination)…
    One of his MMA sites is the following, just showing how strange this guy is, he created a huge website as a profile on a fight site. This site URL is: http://fightclubonline.com/profile.php?sub_section=username &id=Boxer_47
    This is must reading, as he shows many pictures and a lot about himself. This is interestingly only one of his several profiled sites. He interestingly enough hasn’t even logged into this site in almost 6 months, He has abandoned this site for a newer site MySpace site which is much more hardcore, and is clogged with so much junk that you can hardly navigate it: http://www.myspace.com/BUCKNAKED47, adding to a picture of an obsessed person.
    THIS WAS TAKEN FROM HIS SITE. Bergeron just happens (of all things!) to be a clever and devious webmaster, a frustrated writer, has a bone to pick with a lot of people or society in general, is obviously mentally ill to a point (to be determined), and is very clever and resourceful! He has spent I figure at least between 600 to 1000 hours in his campaign against us, spent in chatrooms, calling his “sources” whom he networks with, thru phone and email communications; he recruits sources from those who hate us, disgruntled ex-workers, those in lawsuits, ex-partners and ex-business associates who have a bone to pick; spies he recruits; email blasts of company rosters and others obtained from within his networks; “sources” he offers anonymity so they can get their 10 cents in, or anonymously attack us, even though their identities are usually obvious as Bergeron can’t help himself by letting it out; designing websites against us; threading chatrooms and fight sites with his ideas and advertising his sites for unique hits and to cause overall trouble for Xyience and damaged parties by seeding the clouds, so to speak, with rumor, innuendo, outright lies, slander, etc; using both Google free webmaster tools and free WordPress OS blogging software and plugins; creating and distributing throughout the internet videos of Xyience to defame, make fun of, slander, libel, etc using YouTube, Yahoovideo, Break.com, MySpace, and other sites he can add it to including his threads; creating a radio spot blog which he tried to put all over the place on the net, chat rooms, his website, other places he identified as useful to his campaign against Xyience, Russell Pike …
    If he were to be paid for a “positive PR” campaign on the up and up, at the amount of energy and time for one person to do this, I figure the amount of money he could charge would be 1000 hours X $35 an hour would be $35,000. You can tweak the numbers, but figure Bergeron has spent about between $20,000 and $60,000 of man hours of his own time and energy to engage his campaign of terror against Xyience, Russell Pike , and the other damaged parties…This cannot in any way be considered an act of “journalism” or of normality! And this backs up my assertion that he is doing all of this because of his mental illness clouding his own suspect judgment. I wonder if he was ever sane, however now as he gets older he is clearly getting worse. And he adds a twisted sense of “justice” and self-congratulatory patting himself on the back, for his actions by saying repeatedly that he isn’t getting paid for any of this exhaustive and obsessive “work” and that this proves his “love” for journalism and seeking out the truth and exposing corruption and inequity.
    And for all these reasons, any court should put a stop to this! He cannot hide behind the “first amendment rights” and “freedom of the press” for what he is doing.

    He most likely suffers from one or several personality disorders, with some traits of several of the disorders. Personality traits are enduring approaches to the world expressed in how the person thinks, how he feels, and what he does. Traditionally they have been viewed as unconscious processes. When traits become rigid, dysfunctional, and cause distress in self and others they may be diagnosed as a personality disorder.
    I’d say this study into his personality is relevant because this man is not merely an inquisitive reporter who is “trying to dig up the truth” as he likes to say. He started this campaign of terror against us in January or earlier it appears, and has completely been obsessive in spending a huge amount of unpaid time in harassing us, designing sophisticated websites, engaging a campaign of threading and blogging against us, confiding in and working with a known criminal (Mark Neiber) who directs him on what to say and do (which a credible reporter would never let himself fall for, this person is much more than a “source”, he is a mentor, confidant, and partner in this slander.)
    His personality problems are now our problem! His personality problems are not bad enough that he needs to be psychiatrically hospitalized, but clearly is on the borderline of fantasy and reality. He has a paranoid viewpoint. He is too manipulative to be a successful journalist, as evidenced by his lack of stable employment in that industry (his website on Myspace details the multiple newspapers he worked for, moving around from paper to paper for no real justifiable reason, except that he may not be able to get along with others, and this would be typical in the paranoid person). He has been caught lying many times to get information he desires, almost like a detective with a license to say and do whatever to get ahead on his story. He is grandiose. He has been heard by me on a voicemail he thought was going to Andrew Kriechbaumer (I saved it), and he clearly is manipulative in tone, directive, uses pressured speech, sounds self-important, etc. He clearly is menacing in tone as well, threatening not to “expose” Andrew if he calls “and gives his side of the story” otherwise he “will run what he has and this can’t be stopped”. It sounds like a bad detective using license to lie and manipulate in search of the story he wants to hear. Well, it shows that Rich Bergeron is not simply a reporter calling to confirm sources or stories, he is much too rigid, focused, and has strange mannerisms to be a normal reporter. Because of his odd behavior, I bet his work history is filled with conflict, fighting with others at work, rigidity, and unprofessionalism. This has to be a reason he is unemployed and “seeking employment” as a reporter again he says. He tended to work at small non-descript newspapers, and with his iron-grip focus and passion, he could not be able to work around normal people. He may have the skill set to be a news reporter, but his mannerisms and personality traits are dysfunctional, and he has shown to be way too aggressive and demanding to be around normal people, but he fits right in with his dealings with Mark Neiber who is easily tagged as being a sociopath or criminal deviant. The fact that he has blindly taken on Neiber’s cause without considering his negative profile shows his aggressiveness and lack of either ethics or a sense of sanity (I’d say the latter).
    The reason that figuring out his personality profile is so important is to be able to show a court or judge why Bergeron is so dangerous to Xyience and people he has targeted, his overly zealous passion towards his cause has morphed into a tirade against the damaged parties and he clearly shows a pattern of harassment of us, libel, defamation, and stalking. His stories as a set have no use other than to satisfy his urge to destroy us; his “expose” has no real market as a story, he can’t sell it to any reputable journalistic venue (Lord know he has tried!); his articles, postings, and websites are easily identified by his target audience as being SPAM, manipulative, non-journalistic, the rants and raves of a madman (these are all comments he got sent back from real UFC fight fans whom he assumed would latch onto his stories and demand more! Shows he is somewhat delusional and grandiose)…A court must be able to see that Bergeron cannot hide behind “freedom of the press” claims, that his style of “reporting” is a sham and not viable in any way. No normal journalistic venue would ever run this story for fear of libel claims, lack of clear proof, non-validity, non-professionalism, etc. The fact that Bergeron would continue to spend hundreds of hours chasing this story is clearly ridiculous and shows a pattern of delusional or obsessive thinking. His claim on a post that he welcomes a court of law to show the court how bad Xyience (and other damaged parties are) is absolutely ridiculous. He sounds grandiose and egotistical and self-important on that post. He would refuse normal legal counsel as he doesn’t need that, he would use the stage to go into even more sordid details of what he knows he says, and welcomes the opportunity. This shows more paranoid thinking, obsessive thinking, rigid thinking, and other dysfunctional thinking. In any court action he should be considered for an Independent Psychological or Psychiatric Exam to determine his competency and reveal his true reasons (not the weak excuse of being a “journalist” and to expose the story for the world, and to protect potential victims he says) for his smear campaign against Xyience and other damaged parties (Pike, Weldon, Solomon, A. Kriechbaumer, and many others)…
    He perhaps shows “Narcissistic Personality Disorder” in that he “reacts to criticism with feelings of rage, shame, or humiliation (even if not expressed)”…One can see his anger upon being jabbed at on posts to his threads by me and others. He becomes so angry that he fires off very long emotional and angry replies which leaves one almost breathless. He replies in a way which leaves him looking very unprofessional which he doesn’t seem to care about, as he is so anxious to get out his feelings of hostility about being criticized.
    2) He is interpersonally exploitive: takes advantage of others to achieve his own ends: notice the very manipulative voicemail left for Andrew Kriechbaumer. Notice his strange use of friends tools to latch onto anyone that views his stuff or reaches out to him. He then strangely says these people are all his “friends”, using these contacts as manipulation to raise his search engine rankings, showing he is both clever and manipulative. His high level of lack of ethics for his “reporting” is not consistent with a reputable and ethical journalist, another reason his website and blogs should not be considered journalism with its inherent protections against libel claims.
    3) Has a grandiose sense of self-importance, such as exaggeration of achievements and talents, expects to be noticed as “special” without appropriate achievements. This would be evidenced by his unreasonable display of his various short-term newspaper jobs as showing his prowess as a reputable journalist, which he clearly is not!
    4) Has a sense of entitlement: unreasonable expectation of especially favorable treatment. This would be evidenced by Bergeron’s belief that whatever tactics he uses against Xyience are both justified and legal, even if he has caused great damage to the company and its reputation, as well as the damaged parties.
    5) Lack of empathy: inability to recognize and experience how others feel. This would be evidence by his utter lack of concern or feeling about the tremendous damage he has caused Xyience and the damaged parties! He has no guilt or feeling of caution about the things he says and the way he present them, or the damage inflicted, except to express that “(he hopes to) destroy any shareholder value” for a shareholder or employee he sees not as a victim but as part of the enemy, a innocent casualty of war so to speak, collateral damage which is acceptable in his eyes in order to satisfy his prime objective, that of destroying Xyience and the damaged parties, mostly Russell Pike , whom he has a special hatred of (even though he has never actually met or talked with him, and he shows no personal involvement with ever, other than what he perceives in his mind)…This shows some manner of psychopathology.
    6) Is preoccupied with feelings of envy: His diatribe against Xyience, Russell Pike , Dana White, the UFC, and others reveals his inner hatred towards anything he is jealous of, as he clearly shows in his stories a theme of desiring to destroy any successes of these parties. This is not journalistic ethics at all, but a twisted version of journalism that he uses as justification for his smear campaign…this shows his deviousness and obsession with this subject, not defensible as “journalism”.
    The person with a narcissistic personality disorder displays grandiosity about his importance and achievements. This grandiosity is unlike the delusions of grandeur seen in schizophrenia or bipolars…The grandiosity is somewhat based in reality but is distorted, embellished, or convoluted to meet the person’s needs of overvaluation of self-importance. For example, the person may say they were a star football player (or reporter for a newspaper or newspapers in his case), but doesn’t say the truth that he barely made the 2nd string high school team (or piddled around at various small-time newspapers doing nothing of importance and getting fired for reasons such as lack of journalistic credibility or ethics, for example…)
    The narcissistic person over evaluates himself, is arrogant, and seems indifferent to the criticism of others. Those around him are often seen as superior or inferior. The person has difficulty in knowing what is appropriate or inappropriate (or ethical) behavior. They are self-important.
    Mr. Bergeron also shows facets or traits of the following: Antisocial Personality Disorder – The main feature of antisocial is a pattern of the disregard of the rights of others that is usually demonstrated by the repeated violation of others’ rights (ours) in the form of unlawful (or unethical) behaviors, involving aggressive or illegal activities (his smear campaign). People with this disorder may appear to be charming and intellectual (Bergeron is to many charming and sneaky, as well as very clever and intelligent, and he gets what he wants)…They are smooth talkers and rationalize their (unethical or illegal) behavior. They recognize that they create hostility from others due to their behavior.
    (AND) Paranoid Personality Disorder (he questions without justification the loyalty or trustworthiness of his “sources” such as Mark Kriechbaumer & Mark Neiber who both clearly have ulterior motives and are using Bergeron for their own personal gain. Also, he bears grudges and is unforgiving of insults. He is easily slighted and quick to react with anger or to counterattack (note his rambling, profanity-laced, long and angry responses to posts by Ron Solomon, William Pike, John Chadwell, who were in many instances trying to get such a reaction out of Bergeron to have him make a mistake in strategy of disclosing his real sources or his real strategy of his smear and harassment campaign)…
    Persons with paranoid personality disorders are unable to laugh at themselves and are often humorless and serious (this is clearly the way Bergeron acts)…Speech is logical and goal directed, although the bases of arguments are false (enough said!)…They may appear to be cold and usually lack sentimental and tender feelings (this is noticeable as well in our dealings with Bergeron)…
    THESE EXCERPTS TAKEN FROM DSM-III-R mental health diagnostic criterion. I am not a mental health professional, but merely show patterns in Bergeron’s behavior, interactions with others, his rantings and ravings on his websites and blogs, his obsessive attention to details, his intense hatred for Xyience and the damaged parties even though none of us have ever met him or he has no claim to any damages from us. His behavior must be understood to see why he is doing all of this against the parties in the lawsuit.

    August 21st, 2007 @ 12:23 pm

    I heard Xyience will be laying off another round of employees by year end. They will retain core, vital upper management and operate on a skeleton crew. It will be a far cry from their heyday when they had so much funding they had to think of ways to spend it. Please look into their funding problems. They say the next round of layoffs are because of a change in company vision. Is this true?

    Today Judge Williams signed the injunction against Rich Bergeron and Fight News Unlimited. Just as I predicted. Eight months ago, I told you that John Miller and his Agency did nit exist, and they didn’t. I told you that it was impossible for you to have verified their existence with the dictrict attorney, you hadn’t. That the violent convicted felon Mark Neiber’s lawsuits were fraudulent, they were. That Neiber was not the principal of Launch Marketing Concepts, he wasn’t. That you were about to get a lesson in civil law. You are. That the Judge would sign the injunction, he did. That in addition to an education in civil law, you would get an education in criminal law. Which batting average would you bet on Mr. “Journalist,” yours or mine?

    Good luck recruiting “a whole team of lawyers” to take on your case. Last time I check those “public advocacy groups” are crap, there is a reason those lawyers are free. You get what you pay for. Good luck with your appellate case, you’re going to need it.

    September 7th, 2007 @ 8:12 am

    Jaysen, the “team of lawyers” the “journalist” and his “reliable sources” better include a section of criminal attorneys, because consriracy, extortion, impersonation of law enforcement officials and forgery are serious felony offenses. And by the way Mr. “investgative reporter” look up this law in the United States Code: Title 18, Part I, Chapter 47, 1038. Your “reliable source” the convicted felon Mark Neiber already has a criminal attorney and mark my words, shortly he’ll need more, why don’t you share costs with him? Just the fact that I am able to poat a comment on this site shows that in addition you are in contempt of court.

  249. I TOLD YOU SO
    September 7th, 2007 @ 12:16 pm

    Mr. Bergeron,
    A few months ago I wrote on this site, that the relationship between Xyience and GNC was waivering. 3 weeks ago, upper management at GNC headquarters, decided to discontinue over 80% of the Xyience products available at GNC stores.

    This decision was made after numerous complaints from their store owners, that the shelf space mandated by corporate for the display of Xyience products, was a waste of space because the demand for Xyience products was so low.

    The few Xyience products that GNC stores will still carry, are going to be reviewed in 90 days and if sales do not improve, the remaining products apparently will also be discontinued.

    The contributing factors in the decision to discontinue Xyience products, was not only because of a slow turn rate, but because Xyience mislead and exaggerated the Xyience Marketing Plan and Sales Data to GNC, and also because Underhill and Hall quickly exited and washed their hands of their dealings with Xyience.

    Reggie, if you had access to the official order you would know that the hearing is recorded as taking place on September 9th. You would also know that there are only three claims within my reporting I am not allowed to make, and there is absolutely no indication of any sort that I am liable for any criminal charges. The order is a “preliminary injunction” which means it is only in place until the case goes through the process. Whether it was an honest mistake or not, I have until Sunday to make the proper changes to my stories in order to meet the judge’s demands.

    Rich,

    If you honestly believe for one second that this ‘Danny’ is anything more than a 15 year old who likes the spotlight your the delusional one. What do you think you are doing? Making the next James Bond? Life isn’t that complicated, no way would someone who could afford to buy that many shares of stock attack you on a public forum, and sound so uneducated and stupid. You only make yourself look bad by playing into it like you’re unraveling some huge conspiracy. And to be fair, regardless of how highly you think of your ‘one man’ against the corporation, good luck defending legal specifics against people who have studied the art for years. I don’t care if you are right or wrong, if they want to end you they can do so in a second.

    September 13th, 2007 @ 3:07 pm

    Senior District Judge Brennan maade to following decision today regarding ownership of Launch Marketing Concepts Inc.

    This case, A520896 Mark Neiber v. Patricia Weldon, came before this Court
    for hearing of Neiber’s Motion to Reconsider the partial Granting of Summary
    Judgment heard on July 17, 2007. This Court then placed the Reconsideration
    on its in chambers decision calendar for September 10, 2007.

    After reviewing the motion, the opposition, all attached exhibits, the
    record, and all other relevant filings, this Court now renders its decision.

    It is clear that in this case, based upon the arguments, exhibits, and
    records that were before the Court at that time, that partial summary
    judgment should NOT have been granted. Specifically referring to the
    Granting of Weldon as having been and now remaining the sole director, it
    was clear error to Grant such a motion as that conclusion is not
    conclusively supported by the corporate exhibits nor Court
    filings—especially under a Summary Judgment standard. Therefore, there are
    genuine issues of material fact in this case regarding the directorship.

    Therefore, COURT ORDERS, Neiber’s Motion to Reconsider is hereby GRANTED.
    The previous order entered on or about July 18, 2007 naming Weldon as sole
    director is hereby VACATED. Defendant Weldon is NOT to hold herself out as
    sole director for any purpose nor act as such.

    September 13th, 2007 @ 8:09 pm

    Wow, Neiber is defending the case all by himself without an attorney and he won a huge ruling. I guess Weldon’s attorney must be a real dump truck. Perhaps, her new husband has gotten cheap and doesn’t want to spend his “many resources” on good representation for the love of his life. Maybe the “Odd Couple” title really does fit. Or perhaps Neiber has (assistance) by attorney’s appointed by government agencies, that plan on closing in on the criminals soon and need Neiber to stay active in his cases until the HAMMER comes down hard. I would bet it would the later. KARMA can be a real Bitch if you screw people over and over. I think Mr. Consultant has caused more harm than his money can be worth. If I were an honest employee and I wasn’t getting my sales commissions after busting my balls, then find out all the consultants and contractors that caused all the problems were still getting paid $50.000.00 or more per month, plus huge stock option from the company that tells me they can’t pay me my commissions. I WOULD BE PISSED OFF!

    September 18th, 2007 @ 12:06 pm

    Rich,

    I have read through most of your posts on Xyience and would like to express a little journalistic criticism, if I may.

    It is abundantly clear to me that much of what you offer under the pretence of journalism has some basis and much or all of it “could” be true but, the loose references that you attest to being fact which come from conversation, hearsay and innuendo not only discredit your credibility, cumulatively they weigh in heavily to the context of slander. In my own opinion, you have caused immeasurable damage to Xyience and as far as I can tell it is the company’s founder that you have personal grievance with.

    I appreciate that there are insiders, shareholders, consultants or employees that have chosen foolishly to joust with you in your own editorial but from a journalistic perspective, there seems little objectivity in your column beyond provoked animosity.

    If you are at any point in future to rely upon pro-bono representation for constitutional justification, you should consider carefully that a law firm will only represent you if you have not committed slander by definition against the company or individuals. If counsel’s opinion is that you are guilty of charges made against you, any firm or organization would be unlikely to represent you at their expense. You are going to have a lot of difficulty turning this into a First Amendment case. Your editorial began as a piece of relevant investigative journalism but it is no longer about that.

    There are millions of Russel Pikes out there, and worse. How about OJ? Or Skilling? Or all the scam artists preying on the savings of elderly retirees? Your point here, as one sided as it is, has been made and for some untold reason and you seem to be willing to let it become the best of you. Beyond what you have clearly voiced in your opinion, what is it that you have so vehemently against Mr. Pike and the company which survives him? Somewhere in your writings you purported to be trying to stick up for the shareholders, the little guys. If anything, you are adding salt to their wounds by insinuating that he and Xyience are still one and the same, which I understand is not the case at all, and your rhetoric only stands to harm the shareholders. Corporations by charter survive any individual and this company deserves any and every opportunity to put elements of its past behind it. I’m not sure that you have anything to gain here but to further injure the shareholders and create a worsening set of circumstances for yourself.

    I’m sorry that you have yourself become victimized and am surprised by the lack of maturity of those leveling slander against you but unless and until you realize the gravity of the potential for legal recourse against you, you will be fighting from an indefensible position. I think Xyience would have been wise to have offered to pay for your counsel for at their own expense from the onset. At least then you would have had reasonable guidance between the definitions of free speech and slander and perhaps all sides of this argument would be in a better state of affairs.

    My guess is that if you contacted Xyience you could work out some sort of settlement and understanding to the benefit of all parties. No one wants to go to court if they don’t have to but considering your statements through the course of your narratives, I can’t see that you left them any other option. Hopefully, the little guys whose savings are invested in this company can be the ultimate beneficiaries of your wisdom and not the victims of your penmanship.

  258. rich.bergeron
    September 19th, 2007 @ 8:37 am

    First of all, Xyience already offered me a settlement. Secondly, if you were really a “bystander” you would not have any qualms about leaving your real name. Why is it that everybody who seems to go out of their way to stick up for this company has to hide their identity? I respect your point of view, and I think you attempt to make some good points, but then again you do not have the evidence I now have in my possession that proves Russell Pike is actively involved in this company along with his inner circle of associates. They are actively poisoning Xyience from within. Also, I find it pretty peculiar that you are calling the shareholders the little guys. I’m inclined to think you are wrong there. It is the everyday employee at Xyience who believes he is working toward something genuine, that’s the little guy. If those employees get hoodwinked, and if they are made party to corruption unwittingly, they are the ones being victimized. What you have right now is everyone who’s trying to pump this company up claiming that the company founder has nothing to do with the company. That’s bogus. He has everything to do with the company, he just bought out all the co-founder’s shares, and he’s actively going around trying to secure loans for himself through a representative of the company who is also seeking new investor funds. I have decided not to write anything further in this series and will be contributing all future evidence I receive to the federal authorities. I have compiled new evidence and documentation to show the story runs deeper than what I’ve written. Though I may be enjoined from saying Xyience is actively defrauding investors, I can definitely say that Russell Pike is using Xyience to defraud investors. That is the gist of this suit, anyway, that I am taking what Russell Pike has done and applying it to the whole company. Some might think that is wrong, but it depends on how much you know about Russell Pike. The problem is he has an iron grip and is not letting go. Each time there is a leadership vaccuum when another CEO steps down, Pike takes hold again. He may no longer be the face of Xyience like Bill Gates is for Microsoft, but Xyience is his company and has been since the beginning. He’s got his life dumped into this company, and he’s not letting go. Just because there’s no label to his official capacity and no lettering on his office door proclaiming him as CEO does not mean Pike is not doing the same old moving and shaking that left him under suspicion in the first place. His company is Xyience and Xyience is his company. There is no separating the two as far as I’m concerned and can see, and even when Pike goes to jail again for his offenses I imagine he will still try to rule over his baby. Either way, in the end everyone will see Xyience has no case against me. They never did have one, and they never will. Whether I have representation or not, I will make that fact well known in due time.

    September 19th, 2007 @ 7:56 pm

    Rich, guess who was wearing a wire when an obnoxious roper was bragging that he lent Pike a six figure sum of money at 10% return every month and then said “he is looking for more money at that return” That my freind in this State of Nevada called LOAN SHARKING and RACKETTERING. Guess, who feel right into the trap set-up by the FED’S. I guess Mr. Consultant and all his money will finnally bring the company down after all. GREED and Money gets them all in the end!! Hold On, Rich the Calvery is coming soon. The more Mr. Consultant opens his big-mouth the more people he brings down. I have been promised for all the bullshit I have had to endure to be there when the arrests are made. HAW HAW HE HE Guess who will be laughing then!!

  260. Tap Out
    September 20th, 2007 @ 7:04 am

    We have been following this saga with great interest. Doesn’t Xyience understand that if you have a dark side or skeleton’s in your closet, you should not get involved in any legal issues as either a Plaintiff or as a Defendant, because then you also open yourself up to scrutiny? If they really are trying to go public, which looks highly unlikely, they should settle all the outstanding litigation. Whoever is the legal stratigist at the company should know this fact. Xyience should know better than to sue anyone at this point, let alone a member of the press. If I were a potential investor I would look at all the pending litgation for and against the company and decide it is not a good investment. Plus, if I did invest in the company and I was never told about all the litigation involving the company, that in itself is deceptive business. Xyience should pick their dirty laundry, stop all the litigation and not sue anyone else if they want to survive in the game. Anyone who has ever been sued knows the legal system cuts both ways.

    Rich,

    Your “conclusive” speculation is the tool that you are using to dig your own grave in your arguments against whom I imagine to be worthy counsel that are suing you. I am a bystander yet because it doesent suit your argument you spew rhetoric to the contrary with some hope that it will stick to something.

    Anyone who would leave their “real name” in your column would be a fool. Credit me for not being that. I am only a friend of an ex related party to the company who has their own opinions but who was fully paid for their services and who has no personal vendetta, no stock, no options, nothing.

    I could spend a few minutes and detail the contradictions in your own statements throughout your journalistic tryst but you don’t listen to anybody else in this column but yourself so there would be no point, would there?

    “The Little Guys” I referred to earlier are the many small shareholders, some that you allude to in your column as victimized and defrauded, who genuinely would like to at the very least have something to show for their investment. As you point out, some have fallen on hard times which for some may have been avoidable. Any reasonable person would conclude that the way that you are attempting to report this story is harmful to their prospects. The employees on the other hand are being paid. If they don’t like it they can leave but to say that you are sticking up for the employees is nonsense. If you want to be a hero, stick up for the people who have invested their savings in the company (if your accusations are correct) and do what you can to help them get their money back. I’m sure there are large investors in the company also but they can more likely afford to lose their money but until you can articulate the number and status of the small investors, your comments towards them are irrelevant anyway.

    And this story of yours is for what? Sure, there is a story here but you have written it poorly. You are trying to be the David in a Goliath story but you are inadequately armed, with both pen and counsel. Your website traffic is meager and your ad revenue checks from that wouldn’t pay the garbage bill. The admission that you are going to someday make to yourself if you are ever going to move on is that you have not been objective in your journalistic efforts, at all. The only person you are representing in your arguments is yourself and then you go on to submit press releases that it is you that is the poor little guy being treated unfairly. The outcome that you have been fighting for is making you look like either a jerk or a fool. You are nobody’s advocate. You are uber defensive and any comment that has been objectively made in response to your journalistic adventure is met with some over-defensive entirely speculative rant or attack.

    I don’t know if the directors of the company have any fiduciary compulsion to the shareholders or not but assuming for a moment that they do, they would have been liable not to have filed suit against you. To ignore the damage to the company caused by your escapades would have been irresponsible.

    You say that they offered you a “settlement” but if that was to grant you the interview that you had asked for and some sort of personal interview with someone in the sport, I think it would be a stretch to call that a settlement. For you, now, there are 25 million other things that you can benefit from in a settlement to start with and if I could accurately figure out exactly what it is you are seeking I might be able to give you a few more suggestions but as it is, your not defending the shareholders, it is laughable to say that you are defending the employees, the most harm to the sport through this pissing contest comes from you, not Xyience. Your hopes for journalistic achievement were crushed by your lack of objectivity long ago.

    As I stated in my first post, everything that you have written could be true but the more you write the more you have to defend yourself and you have already set yourself up for a slander case that has as much iron in it as the OJ complaint. If you can take yourself out of the journalism and be an advocate for someone other than yourself then perhaps you can turn your argument into something objectively useful.

    Please don’t bother to post a rebuttal. You have your views and I have mine. I don’t care if you think I’m right or wrong. I don’t care if you win or lose but there are some things that the betting office would place high odds on; that you will get your ass handed to you in the slander suit and the probability of achieving representation by an advocacy group are next to nothing. Those are the things that you should be concerned about. If you want to be a journalist, start writing like one and stop being such a cry baby.

    And no, contrary to what you would like to believe I do not have any interest in the company and I only know one person who used to work for them. My fascination comes in large part from the spectacle that you have made of it and the irreverence with which you continue to do it. Now were I a professor of journalism, your efforts here would make great material as would they if I were a law professor. At least for those contributions you can be applauded.

    Bystander, you have no reason not to leave your name if you are making an honest and unbiased assessment. As for me not being objective, where is there proof of that? You want to know why I wrote this series, and it’s a very simple answer. Justice. These shareholders you speak of who are only getting hurt by my stories according to you are going to get hurt worse without my stories. Without the spotlight on those seeking to pillage this company into the ground, they would be free to do more damage. Since the lawsuit I have provided federal agencies with enough information to fully investigate those people who continue to poison Xyience. Any IPO with those folks still in place will be tainted. All lawsuits have to be settled before any IPO takes place anyway, so my stories are not the only impediment for those shareholdes to worry about. I have always announced publicly that my motive is to help clean things up. That has not changed at all. As far as the settlement, that was offered last week. Xyience is not in any position to keep this charade going against me, and they realize the fact that their case is weak and that it will not stand up on any appeal. I know my information comes from inside sources with in-depth knowledge of how the company operates. I know what’s going on almost 3,000 miles away almost as soon as it happens. I know those pushing this case against me are making fools of themselves by proving my claims true through their behavior. The justice system will catch up with all of them soon through both the court system and the investigative arms of the federal government. It’s called law and order. Some people may not see the value of what I’m doing, but they are not in my position. They do not know who I deal with on a daily basis to get my information. They do not realize the extent of the ongoing questionable behavior at this company. I am not some random person without a lick of journalistic experience trying to take on something I can’t handle. I have worked for newspapers and written for magazines. I know a good story when I see one, a story that doesn’t need the facts to be manipulated to make it that good. This is that story, and I have no need, desire, or motivation to do anything less than present the truth. That’s what I have done and will continue to do. The only thing that’s changed is that before the lawsuit I was trying to inspire change through public awareness. Now, I’m going the more direct route and giving the authorities what they need to sort things out. As long as I am being put in the position of the villain for doing something to promote justice, I have to defend myself, so whether or not I get any legal help, I’ll fight for as long as I have to. I don’t have $25 million to lose, and I’m not interested in selling out with a settlement offer that Xyience will probably never pay anyway. My only choice is to fight for as long as it takes, with every fiber of my being, and that’s what I’ll do. Those who come after me and try to take on the same big money interests corrupting the system will have my example to look to when the smoke clears.

  265. Concerned Investor
    September 22nd, 2007 @ 9:42 am

    I am an investor in Xyience. I gave them some money last year. At the time it looked and sounded like a great investment. I am sorry to say that if I would have done my due diligence on the company and Pike, I would have realized that it was a poor investment. I was sent a letter from Xyience for another great opportunity to invest more money with them. Need-less to say I declined that solicitation.

    I also was resently contacted by the same person who conned me into investing last year, and wanted to know if I would join in with other investors to file a slander suit against you and another individual who he said is trying to destroy the reputation of Xyience and that it could hurt the IPO offering. I told him no, I don’t want my name on any lawsuit. Another lawsuit would only open up the gate for a counter-claim and more scrutiny of the company and myself as an investor in Xyience. I made the suggestion, for them to concentrate on marketing the energy drink and to stay out of the business of suing people.

    Looks like they once again, didn’t listen. I hope someday to recover my investment dollars but, I have already resolved the fact that it was a mistake on my part and my money is gone.

    I will not leave my name here, only for the fact that I am still an investor and do not want to be sued by the company I have an investment in. You have my e-mail address, please feel free to contact me and we can discuss this further.

    XYIENCE(R) Announces $12 Million Funding and Signing of Long Term UFC(R) Sponsorship

    LAS VEGAS, Oct. 10 – XYIENCE(R) Inc. (pronounced zy-ince), one of the fastest growing brands in the beverage and nutritional supplements business, today announced that the company has received access to up to $12 million in a strategic funding effort from a group of investors. The company intends to use a significant portion of the investment to expand distribution of its Xenergy brand energy drink. The name Xenergy is a combination of Zen and Energy and is pronounced “Zenergy”.

    In just one year, Xenergy has increased distribution from 4,600 stores to 45,000 and can be found in such national retailers as 7-11, Kroger and GNC as well as in regional grocery and convenience stores around the country.

    XYIENCE recently introduced three new Xenergy flavors, Mango Guava, Pink Lemon and Blu Pom, which join the popular original flavors of Citrus Clear, Cran-Razz and Big Apple. Containing no calories, sugar or carbohydrates, Xenergy is formulated to provide clean, sustainable energy. Scientifically fortified with vitamins, the proprietary blend is designed to prevent the crash ending often associated with other energy drinks.

    XYIENCE also announced that the company’s exclusive sponsorship relationship with the Ultimate Fighting Championship(R) (UFC(R)) has been extended for an additional three years. Xenergy is the official energy drink of the UFC(R), the world’s leading professional mixed martial arts organization.

    “XYIENCE has been a long time sponsor of the UFC(R) and we look forward to our future endeavors together as both of our companies continue their explosive growth,” said Dana White, UFC(R) President.

    “We believe that the combination of new financing and the extension of our UFC(R) relationship firmly positions the company for success as we embark on a worldwide expansion of the XYIENCE and Xenergy brands,” said Adam Frank, XYIENCE CEO.

    About XYIENCE(R)
    XYIENCE, one of the fastest growing brands in the health related category, utilizes advanced science in the development of nutritional products and supplements necessary for maintaining a dynamic lifestyle. XYIENCE offerings, including energy drinks and nutritional supplements, represent an authentic lifestyle that is both functional and fashionable. For more information, visit http://www.xyience.com/.

  271. HERE IS THE TRUTH ABOUT XYIENCE
    October 11th, 2007 @ 6:48 pm

    XYIENCE is also the fastest company to be dropped by all the National Retailers and GNC stores Nationwide. Xyience supplements don’t sell and Xynergy can now be found at the .99 cent stores (2)for .99 cents.

    Xyience is also the fastest Nutritional Supplement company to be investigated for illegal money raising by several State and Federal Agencies. (8 PPM’s are you nuts!!) (Mr. Annoying raising money illegally)

    Xyience is also run by the biggest CON-MAN in Nevada, Russell Craig Pike, who has been sent to prison several times for Bank Fraud, Money Laundering, Grand Theft, Forgery and Aidding and Abetting.

    Xyience is also the fastest company to be sued by investors, employees, contractors, vendors, manufacturers and consumers.

    Xyience is the ONLY supplement company to be issued a Desist and Refrain order by the California Department of Corporations for their fraudulent money raising and lying to investors.

    Xyience is the first Energy Drink Company to blow through the 56 milliom dollara in a matter of months and now will blow through 12 million from the UFC. What are they going to do then??

    Perhaps, Mr. Annoying Consultant and his over priced Sub-Contractor blonde bimbo wife have caused the down fall of Xyience. If Adam Frank was smart, he would get rid of Mr. Annoying A.S.A.P.

    In the words of the former International Sales Director to the Feds,”Xyience has been trying to get rid of Mr. Annoying for sometime” Apparently, Mr. Annoying needs a strong push out the door by Xyience, if they ever plan to have a Fat Lady Sings chance of surviving.

    MORE IS YET TO COME

    P.S. Tell Chadell(Xyience Security/ Weldon Process Server) to look harder next time, what a dork! Are you really paying that loser? Perhaps your bimbo is trading her services out to him!!

    Sean Sherk: “Xyience ripped a bunch of fighters off, including me.”

    “Eric Shapiro: A lot of guys in the UFC including yourself are sponsored by Xyience. Are they still treating you well?

    Sean Sherk: Oh no, I’m not sponsored by them anymore. I used to be but they stiffed me a bunch of money. They stiff everybody. A lot of people are leaving them.”

    Looks like those inflated numbers of Xyience sponsorships were BS cause they never got paid out.

    Have you guys read up on the shady dealings of Xyience?

    The company is run by crooks, I’ve been waiting patiently for some fighters to come forward with these kindss of statements. The guys who run xyience have a long history of stealing investors money and basically cheating everyone they can.

    If I can find the article again, I’ll post it … It’s a very revealing look into the company.

    Xyience just spent a ton of money getting name recognition and putting out bad products.

    but I guarantee that you will find a ton of assholes taking the stuff

    Las Vegas, Nevada—that sprawling city of blinking neon lights, legalized gambling, and various connections to underworld criminal activity—has made a name for itself as “The City of Sin” and runs a television ad campaign that promises, “What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas.” There could never be a more fitting place for Xyience Founder Russell Pike to set up shop with his latest corrupt scheme.

    Pike was indicted in U.S. District Court on July 9, 1997, on charges of bank fraud, money laundering and aiding and abetting. He pleaded guilty to money laundering in June of 1999. He was committed into the minimum-security Federal Prison Camp near Nellis Air Force Base in July of 1999.

    Fight News Unlimited sources report that Pike still harbors a serious gambling problem, yet another reason why he is right at home in Vegas. Over the course of his entire career he’s perfected the art of building up hollow houses of cards and making a quick escape just before they collapse. He has found Las Vegas to be an enterprising environment for his latest business venture, and for a long time he was even able to hide his criminal past from the very investors who helped him launch Xyience.

    Despite the criminal record and his court history revealing several separate bankruptcy cases brought against him, Pike actually served as the CEO of Xyience for a short time. Since he started the company he brokered major sponsorships with the UFC and The World Poker Tour (The WPT has since canceled their sponsorship with Xyience) until he was then replaced by an interim CEO. The next CEO of Xyience was Adam Roseman of ARC Investments. Roseman came in to help bring Xyience public, which is one of ARC Investment’s specialties. The company also provides financing, which it announced plans to help Xyience with. When asked about Roseman’s departure, Xyience General Counsel Pete Rinato said, “I’m not at liberty to discuss his exit.”

    Apparently yet another new CEO came and went: Bill Underhill. Regardless of who runs the company now, Pike reportedly holds millions of shares of Xyience stock. Rinato points out that Pike will likely be among “the top 5-7 shareholders,” but he maintained those holdings won’t give Pike “any authority to do anything.” Rinato also explained that there are plenty of investors and shareholders out there with shady pasts, mentioning Martha Stewart and Michael Milken. Inside sources at Xyience have alleged that Pike will be the controlling partner whenever the stock does finally hit the market.

    At least one man who knows Pike personally believes the day of a Xyience IPO announcement will never come as long as he is associated with the supplement company. “He won’t go public. This is what he always does. He builds companies up and then walks away,” said Attorney David Winterton of Las Vegas, who has worked with Pike in the past as a private and corporate legal representative. “History repeats itself.”

    Winterton established his law firm Winterton and Associates in 1996, and according to their Web-site, “The firm represents clients in various financial matters. Mr. Winterton has been a real estate broker for over 25 years and is also a title officer. He has handled some of the state’s largest real estate transactions.”

    Winterton is currently representing a few clients Pike allegedly burned with crooked investment deals. He knows enough about Pike’s background to explain just how the man operates. “How I ran into Mr. Pike, I had a good friend and a fellow attorney who asked me to file bankruptcy for him. I told him that I never file for anybody until I meet the person and go over it,” said Winterton. “Since I was asked by a friend, I did agree to take the case, and I got all the information from the other attorney. I filed it, and right before we went to court I met him [Pike]. He came in, and we reviewed the documents. That’s where I began to learn about his dealings.”

    Though initially it seemed that Russell Pike was just another bad businessman who couldn’t manage his finances, it soon became clear to Winterton that scandal seemed to follow Pike through his whole life. “I know he was working with real estate investment projects, and he had a product he was marketing, so he lured investors to come in and invest, but it didn’t work out. He ended up having to file bankruptcy,” Winterton reported. “Shortly after he filed bankruptcy, he took off and went back east, and then he was indicted for criminal charges, so I referred him to a criminal attorney since I don’t do criminal work. At the same time he was dealing with an ugly divorce with his wife. Another lady there was claiming she had a child with him, and she wanted child support, plus he was seeing the same lady he is seeing now. That’s what he was doing when I met him.”

    Pike made a home briefly in Florida and began to put the pieces in place to start a new company called Casino Carts & Cabinetry (CCC). The company would specialize in providing specialized gaming carts to casinos. “Some place advanced him 100,000 dollars to purchase some carts, and the same thing happened. He didn’t produce the carts,” said Winterton. “The same thing happened, and the situation got settled. I never really had an explanation.”

    The real culprit in that instance was Jennifer Capri, AKA Jennifer Pike. Winterton said he is almost positive that the two are not married, but he has suspicions that Jennifer had her last name changed to make it appear as if they are. “She changed her name, I heard. I was told they never got married. Legally if you are not married, you don’t have to worry as much about property law,” said Winterton.

    The case of USA vs. Capri charged her with bank fraud and mail fraud, though the bank fraud charge was eventually dropped. Court records reveal that prosecutors filed charges in September of 2001 and the case ended on the last day of July in 2002.

    Her indictment (http://unlimitedfightnews.com/jennif…indictment.pdf) reveals that New Serve, Inc. (the purchasing agent for the Soaring Eagle Casino in Mount Pleasant, Michigan) ordered an assortment of carts from the company totaling $108,368.40 that they paid in advance. The document goes on to explain, “The defendant CAPRI maintained at least two accounts at the Dain Bosworth brokerage firm, one account opened on September 23, 1996, in the name of CCC and the other account opened in her own name prior to the CCC account. The defendant CAPRI deposited the New Serve, Inc., check for $108,368.40 into the CCC account at Dain Bosworth on or about September 23, 1996. After receipt of the funds from New Serve, Inc., the defendant purchased investments, transferred funds to her personal account, and otherwise used the funds received for the purchase of casino equipment for her own personal purposes… The defendant CAPRI never fulfilled the purchase order for New Serve, Inc., or the Soaring Eagle Casino, and those entities were defrauded of the funds diverted and spent by the defendant CAPRI.

    Eric Shapiro: A lot of guys in the UFC including yourself are sponsored by Xyience. Are they still treating you well?

    Sean Sherk: Oh no, I’m not sponsored by them anymore. I used to be but they stiffed me a bunch of money. They stiff everybody. A lot of people are leaving them.”

    Looks like those inflated numbers of Xyience sponsorships were BS cause they never got paid out.

    Looks like the corrupt Xyience Company is finnally getting caught on their supplement fraud. Everyone in the supplement industry knew they were a joke. Now the truth is starting to catch up to them.

    Sherk’s supplements tested positive for steroids – XYIENCE

    Remember all of the geniuses who insisted, in many previous threads, that it would be impossible for a major supplement brand to contain steroids?

    From the front page of Sherdog.com:

    “Seven tests totaling $3,000 were conducted on supplements Sherk took before his bout against Hermes Franca (Pictures). One such product was the Xyience-branded “Xyience Xtreme Joint Formula.” Five capsules were analyzed according to a report supplied by Don H. Catlin, M.D., president and CEO of Anti-Doping Research, Inc.

    “No anabolic steroids were detected in four of the capsules,” Catlin wrote. “In one capsule 1-androstendione was identified.”

    As for the one capsule of “Xyience Xtreme Joint Formula” in which 1-androstendione was identified, the company said it has halted all shipments of the product until it can conduct independent testing by a certified lab.

    “While we are confident that Xyience products do not contain anabolic agents or any illegal substances,” said Susan Wierzbicki, Director of Quality Assurance, Xyience, “we are taking this report very seriously.”

    GNC Corporate has discontinued carrying the Xenergy Drinks in all the GNC stores nationwide. Apparently, the Xyience Con”slut”ant for GNC, isn’t doing a very good job.

  281. HERE IS MORE TRUTH ABOUT XYIENCE
    November 14th, 2007 @ 7:50 pm

    Dave Meltzer reported in this week’s Wrestling Observer that Chuck Liddell, Forrest Griffin, and Rich Franklin are no longer involved with Xyience for a variety of unreported reasons. Liddell ended his relationship after the company failed to pay on his substantial endorsement deal when it experienced its first round of financial trouble. The company’s website still features Griffin and Franklin in its fighters media section along with Anderson Silva, Sean Sherk, Matt Hughes, BJ Penn, Mike Swick, Cung Le, and Josh Koscheck.

    In an interview with Five Ounces of Pain, when asked about his association with the company, Sean Sherk responded: “Oh no, I’m not sponsored by them anymore. I used to be but they stiffed me a bunch of money. They stiff everybody. A lot of people are leaving them.”

    UPDATE – MMAPayout.com has confirmed that Matt Hughes is no longer associated with the company. When asked about the relationship, Hughes business manager Brian Patton said, “Matt is no longer with Xyience and is now with Nutritox. His contract expired on August 15th. He has since signed a long-term deal with Nutritox. He was not happy with [Xyience's] performance.”

    UPDATE 2 – MMAPayout.com has confirmed with Rich Franklin’s business manager, J.T. Stewart, that nonpayment was also the reason Franklin ended his association with Xyience.
