LowEndBox - Cheap VPS, Hosting and Dedicated Server Deals

The Saga Continues, Now With Police Records! (This Offer Writeup Didn't Go the Way I Planned, Part II)

Austin Ayers
Thanks to Don. J Carpenter of roguejournalist.org for his coverage of Austin Ayers.  Click here to enter the madness.

Yesterday we posted an offer drenched in disclaimers and warnings from Rackifi, aka GameHostDirect, aka Mad Gigabit, aka Austin Ayers.   Who is also aka TheTraumaDoc.  And it looks like we’ve stumbled into some kind of crazy Johnny Nguyen-level drama.

Offer details in the previous post have been removed.

Where to start with this one…

In 2018, Austin Ayers was arrested for soliciting a kid to shoot up someone’s house with a BB gun (and the kid carried this out).  When he was arrested, Austin was apparently carrying a stun gun, which was a misdemeanor for him because of offenses prior to 2018.  He pled guilty and got two years probation/community service.

Apparently this is due to a previous fist fight in a mall.  (Side note: kids still get into fist fights in malls in 2018?  Or is this part of Pennsylvania in some kind of 40-year time warp to the past?)

He has various news sites such the Butler Dispatch which he’s claimed at various times to have been a news aggregator and at other times a hard-hitting investigative journalism enterprise and everything in between.  When I looked at it was some kind of robo-spinning content site, harvesting content from other sites.  (Holy crap, I was right!  That was just my impression but an analysis was done.  100% plagiarized content.)

Also in 2018, a Facebook group called “Stop Fake News in Butler PA” sprang up, which includes some gems like these:

These are the nicest things.  Some of his interactions with people asking him questions including such clever ripostes as “suck another cock you slut” and “message them yourself with your fat STD infested cunt you bloody twat”.  He has the vocabulary of @Nekki without the wit.

Last year he was in court on charges of “impersonating a public servant” and then also later fraud, theft, and tampering with public records.  He claimed to be a licensed EMT but the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania disagrees, and in fact arrested him when he tried to buy a license plate for an emergency vehicle.

He is definitely not good with a solder iron.  At age 15 he was already claiming to be a CEO, and I’ll link to the same URL in twice in one sentence because he also faked a letter from the FBI to a site that posted an article critical of him, in which the government purportedly demanded the page be removed.  The site owner was neither impressed nor amused.

It’s no surprise he’s been a dick in many other ways.

And by the way, he was just sentenced in July to two years of probation and community service.

That’s pretty much the last 7 years of Austin’s life.  We can only imagine what the next 7 holds.




  1. Can confirm.
    Austin Ayers is a scammet

    Will say you could have chosen a better source than one who is being hosted offshore after being banned from dozens of US hosts for fraud, malware, and defamation. Hence the Orange Website IP of Rogue Journalist, and why zero actual news sources reported on said.

    But I disgress.

    ButlerDispatch.com was sold in 2018 on Flippa and has changed hands several times since then, hence why it is a PBN site now to some dude in India.

    As far as charges, 80% was dropped including the fraud, theft, etc…

    In addition, no fist fight at a mall ever occurred. And there was no charges pre-2018, which can easily be found online.

    I’d suggest doing a but more “investigative research” prior to slamming someone. Especially posting links to a guy’s website who doxxed a 16-year-old rape victim and stalked/harassed several minor females. Who also happened to be a police and FDNY impersonator….

    May want to vet your sources next time.

      Why weren’t 100% of the charges dropped?

        It’s called taking a plea deal to get $60,000 worth of equipment back is what he did.

        Not to mention his docket is fully squeaky clean.

          Means he’s a criminal, reason to avoid him xd

          Pretty much just reinforces what raindog posted.

            I mean if he’s a criminal, so is every single politician ever.

            Every single major company has paid off someone.

            Look at Kyle Busch sentenced to 3 years yesterday but he doesn’t have to serve a single day.

            They only care if the case is worth millions of dollars. Look at ARIN fraud. They only cared when it was $20 mil.

    Donald Carpenter is not a journalist and “Rogue Journalist” is not a reliable source for information. Just the title of the blog should be enough to infer that much information. Donald is well established in the City of Pittsburgh (particularly Dormont) for being a lunatic, stalker, psychopath, sycophant, narcissist, habitual liar and all-around bullshitter. Locals do not give him high regard and classify him as a city menace. His reputation is justifiably sour and it gets him into trouble more often than he cares to admit. So much so in fact, that he had to recently relocate to Clairton for his own safety. I can only imagine that his insufferable demeanor will ruin another great neighborhood.

    Rouge Journalist is for all intents and purposes, a hate blog. I dare to say that it has a similar structure to infoWars. It consists of the claw marks of a bunch of loosely-connected, similarly terrible people who ad-lib a bunch of incoherent and immature rants into a single, barely cohesive work of fiction and spin it as news. There is no reliable objective information to be found in his account of Austin Ayers and there is nothing of note that is original on the website. Any other piece of work on the site is pretty much either plagiarized or aggregated.

    In all, Donald is as he claims Ayers to be. By making these claims, Donald intends to defer his own reputation onto Ayers. I have been studying this quarrel for years; back when Justin Casilyn was the sole distributor of this nonsense. I can assure you from a position on the outside that all is not what it seems. A lot of lying, hearsay, blame, rhetoric, name-calling, backblast and all other filth has devolved this snowball into a mudball. Take heed, this is not something you want wrapped up in. Given the comments I see above, it seems to be too late.

    You do not need to stoop to this level just because you use the moniker “LowEndBox”. LowEnd is not intended to be taken to heart, but this kind of rhetoric makes me believe that money might not be spent well here. If I were a customer of yours, reading this objectively, i would demand to be refunded. This brand has established itself to be much better than this. This conduct is unbecoming of a professional data handling service and equipment lending provider. This article hurts your brand substantially and it makes you just as foolish as Donald himself.

    If you value your time and have the intent to be honest with your customers, this is counterintuitive and destroys your own merit. Do not look through Donald’s lens. Not only is it warped, but it is putrid. There is nothing of value to be seen through it if anything at all.
