Theo Speaks!

Theo Rossi finally came out of hiding and published this in our comments section today:

I don’t care what you write about me as a person within reason, but you 
can’t use my copyrighted images and script. So, please remove it. Anyone 
in this business knows you can not use copyrighted images and text without 
written permission.Obviously you have no clue.The reason we have closed 
websites because of assholes like you, who has no respect for material 
created by others. It was a good decison. Dude, the burden of proof is 
on YOU to prove your audience that you’re correct what you’re saying is 
true about me. Until then, you’re just a blowing smoke through your ass. 
That’s the way it works in the court, if you accuse someone, you better 
be right and have proof. You have none. Evidently you have a problem 
with people who made it in this business and well off financially 
as I am. So, be it, and let your petty, vindictive personality 
show the world how you really are. I could care less. But be 
careful with your post(s) when you’re trying to destroy my 
reputation and business. That, my friend, is a no-no. Google 
the recent tweet by someone badmouthing a person in business and 
they had to pay $450,000 in damages for that ‘freedom of speech’ 
kind of thing. I assume you haven’t a pot to piss in, so I 
can’t sue you and it would be waste of my time, but I have 
other recources/options at my disposal and may use it if you 
continue.Being desperate and trying to use anyone and anything 
to get attention to your blog is showing. Attacking Calvin, a pastor
who is very decent person, because he is my friend is uncalled 
for. This is the first and last message I’ll leave here and never 
come back. If my copyrighted work is not taken down, I’ll report 
you to wordpress and let them deal with you. Just in case you are 
deleting this message, I’ll post it on the ‘real’ auditorz site as well. 
Unlike a fake one as yours, who couldn’t come up with an original 
name and had to steal that one due to lack of imagination. 
I’ll have someone check on this site if have complied with 
my request to remove copyrighted works belongs to me.
Theo

Petty? Vindictive? Isn’t that the pot calling the kettle black, Theo?

You spend nearly everyday on an attack blog. You rag on Amazon – which we can understandBut you also rag on other writers – which we don’t. You’re unyielding and positively vapid. You tear apart their work, mercilessly. Your basis for doing so is a claim of “expertise” and all we’re saying (in our smart-ass way) is we’d like to see your credentials.

We searched a number of industry recognized resources and could not find your name anywhere. We found no credits for you. We found no press releases with your name. We found no listing for you in the writers, directors or producers guilds. For someone “who made it in the business” and is as “financially well-off” as you claim you are, we think that’s strange. 

Even stranger, the one writing sample we did find for you wasn’t very good. Everything about it – format, content, tone, grammar – all suggested that you were not an accomplished writer, but rather, an amateur.

In the United States, when someone claims that something written about them is false (libel), the burden is on THEM to prove it. Not the other way around. We want to be fair to you, Theo. A single verifiable credit from you would completely destroy the tiny shred of credibility we have and win you a complete, total, apology.

We don’t censor our boards, so you can publicly post it here. If you want to keep your real identity private, send the credit to us, let us verify it, and we’ll agree not to publish the details. If you don’t trust us, let the other auditorz verify it and send us their blessing. 

Otherwise, our original posts stands. You’ve been called out, and spanked, for being an asshole. Happens to the best of us.

  1. Prove them wrong Theo. It should be easy. Easier than writing a long-winded weeping pity response.

  2. Calvin Monty Keeling

    A Word From The Hillbilly Rev.

    First, you should apologize for the typo of iding the picture of the fat guy as Theo when it really is of me.

    Second, gossip is when you go behind someone’s back. It is also information, often questionable, designed to hurt a person. If you read the gospels you will notice that Jesus smacked folks all the time. Being Christian, a retired pastor, and a pacifist, doesn’t prevent me from expressing my opinion. (After all that’s what pastor’s are paid for in the first place!). My goal in life is to love everyone and live for the good of others. Yes I fail a lot at that goal, but I really try. Offending folks doesn’t mean you don’t love them.

    Thirdly, success in one person’s eyes may not be success in another’s. Theo had made his mark, and some cash, in other business ventures and later in life as decided to be an independent film producer. I know he’s not in it to make money. He’s in it to make films. Which he has done. I, for one, value his opinion. And sometimes, even yours.

    • Calvin, gossip is defined as “casual or unconstrained conversation or reports about other people, typically involving details that are not confirmed as being true.”

      We respectfully ask that you go back and look at some of your posts – mainly in the comments section of “the other guys” site. We believe that many of them meet this definition.

      And that’s fine… you’re entitled. Lord knows we do. It’s just that when you go from that to being the pious preacher that we have to call you out.

      We like you, though. You’ve got humility. You’ve never lied or claimed to be anything other than a retired preacher (which is true). Plus, you’ve posted your work (which we actually like).

      That’s more than we can say about your friend, Theo.

  3. Theo now says he has 2 scripts on AS. Where are they?

  4. I leave for one week and all hell breaks loose. Now both sites have turned into pools of teenage angst.
