I was just searching around ebay for a spare xbox dvd drive when I come across a description that looked really good. I almost bid on it when something caught my attention "if you have any questions please e-mail me at jonathanmartino@hotmail.com" I was just like WTF then I check the location the user "susanmartino" was from Winfield, PA. I also checked the feedback and one of the negatives listed " User's 12 year-old son made an unathorized listing and backed out". Check it out and tell me if I am jumping to conclusions http://cgi.ebay.com/...&category=20385

Better safe than sorry, don't bother bidding if you're unsure. There's bound to be a better person to bid from later.

No chance of me bidding on it as soon as I saw the three things that I mentioned above I wrote this one off. I don't actually need an xbox dvd drive I just thought if I could find a good deal on one it might be nice to have a working spare.

The few examples that I can think of off the top of my head are: 1. Taking credit for someone else's customized xbox 2. Offered to trade on of our fellow users here an X2 modchip (that was brand new and never used) for a matrix chip. When he got it he posted a pic of something that looked like an old mobo and turned out to be a used Xecutor (1st generation) with a wire soldered to it. 3. Sold a bogus harddrive to someone else on here. If you do a search HSDEMONZ made a whole list on his activities here and elsewhere. Bottom line is he never had a straight deal with anyone.

First ever post... Bumps his own message.. begging for help! For stuff that was easy to find! Never get a direct reply.. guess no one wanted to help a guy too lazy to do a simple search!

Within days of signing up... he then moves on to creating 3 THREADS.. in 2 days.. that have the practically the same post... 2 in the same forum.


http://forums.xbox-s...hl=

http://forums.xbox-s...hl=

http://forums.xbox-s...hl=

He gets 2 replies for his effort!

So... he'd been with us for a week.. maybe two.. and struggling with things like EVOX INSTALL, fucking up his EVOX ands MS Dash's, and trouble burning with a garbage BURNER. He then decide he is now smart enough to handle MODDING the case...


http://forums.xbox-s...l=

Dec 12 2002, MATRIXMAN
“<quote>Just to see if anyone tried this, is'nt it possible to change the dip with a piece of plastic (or something like that) wich is small enough to pass through the ventilation holes? I put a Black "door" type thing on it, i just swing it open and change it wite a tiny headed scredriver. doesn't look too bad and it works, better than always takin the damn thing apart. i could make a tutorial for you guys (if mods want me to), its a lot easier than a switch.”

Now he thinks that after being here for 2 weeks.. he can (or should???) write a tutorial on cutting a HOLDE in the case.. and poking at the modchip with a straw or some other utensil!

A couple more days rolls around.. and guess what… he starts having trouble installing the simplest MODCHIP designed at the time.. the MATRIX!


http://forums.xbox-s...l=

His knowledge of computers shines in this quote… “what is that parelel prot to ECP mean?” http://forums.xbox-s...l=

We learn on DEC 17 he is a pirate.. burning games he clearly doesn’t own… “how big is hunter the wreckoning oops i edited that didn't see that http://forums.xbox-s...l=

On Dec 19… at this point he’d been with us 20 days… has the balls to ask for a TUTORIAL… clearly, after all that time he was still a lazy ass. http://forums.xbox-s...l=

Then… he moves into ASSHOLE mode… After helping people for months... I decide it is now time to pull back.. and only answer questions publicly in the forums… in the hopes that I can reduce the number of hours I spend per week answering the same questions over and over.

I add a single line.. to my sig NO PM’s! So.. guess MATRIXMAN makes up his own rules.. and ignores anthing he wants… so he doesn’t take to kindly to the fact that I expose his PM to the FORUM AUDIENCE!
http://forums.xbox-s...l=

In that thread… he is exposed as a pirate… and as a rule breaker… hitting up anyone who will listen (with PM’s) to get BIOS files he “says” he already had.

This guys attitude towards online etiquette becomes more evident.. as he bumps his own thread (DEC 22) after only 20 minutes…
http://forums.xbox-scene.com/index.php?act=ST&f=18&t=19412&hl=&#entry120274

Dec 28 rolls around… and MATRIXMAN still hasn’t learned anything.. as he continues to be rude and inconsiderate.. and makes posts.. and bumps them… clearly doing nothing to search for the info… http://forums.xbox-s...l= but XBOXING takes pity on him.. and does the search FOR HIM!

Jan 3rd Rolls around.. and MATRIXMAN continues to show his SMARTS… posting ILLEGAL pointers to files…
http://forums.xbox-s...l= and http://forums.xbox-s...l=

Decides to take a break… and SLAP some other guys around… “you got a lot of posts but no knowledge” http://forums.xbox-s...l=

On JAN 4th.. MATRIXMAN figures he’s been around a month.. so now he can start calling other people NOOBS… he also figures it’s time to start telling people to search.. “do your research then talk n00b” http://forums.xbox-s...l=

Funny how just days after again not doing his own searching.. he thinks he’s a big shot.. and can tell others they should search!

Somewhere around the 4th.. KAZUYA WARUASOBI informed us that MATRIXMAN is a 15 year old… and it turns out that he thinks he OWNS threads… MATRIXMAN
“stay outta my thread with needless posts” http://forums.xbox-s...l=

He decides to continue to harass newbies... citing them for not reading something that was posted 3 times recently... funny how he forgets he posts the same thing 3 times himself! http://forums.xbox-scene.com/index.php?act=ST&f=24&t=22033&hl=&#entry138993

Same day... decides to show more of his smarts… “also its brand new WD shit isn't gunna just fry..dumb ass…” http://forums.xbox-s...l=

Guess he is some sort of HARDWARE GURU.. knows all about PC parts… imagine the shock he’d fine working in a computer shop.. when people returned drives that are either DOA.. or had other issues causing them to pretty much die instantly!

Later.. same day… MATRIXMAN
“cmon i've been helping you guys out a lot haven't asked for help in a month please help” http://forums.xbox-s...l=

Wow... for all of his “hard work” now he want help… funny how hard his “HELP” is to find at times…

Jan 6th.
. “READ the tutorials” http://forums.xbox-s...l= in this post… he makes like he’s been around forever.. even though it was only 6 weeks.. and.. this coming from a guy who really hadn’t read ANYTHING.. or searched for ANYTHING! Also.. from the same guy with 3 weeks of problems with the worlds EASIEST CHIP!

Same day… MATRIXMAN
“IBMS SUCK get the Maxtor” http://forums.xbox-s...l= great advice from a guy who already showed earlier he doesn’t know much about HARD QUALITY issues.. or their longevity!

More shit… then Jan 22 rolls around… and he launches his scummy WEB SITE! Buyer BEWARE! No pointers given to protect members of XBOX-SCENE.COM. He decides that since no one went to his site on that day.. he’d pester us again 3 days later on the 25… this time.. saying it’s a dedicated MATRIX site. This from a guy with weeks of problems just installing it! Funny thing is.. he feels that a dedicated site and tutorial for the MATRIX is necessary… seeing as how it was supposed to be the easiest chip to install. Well..not shocking.. this from a guy that wanted to make a tutorial about cutting a single hole in your XBOX.. so that you can poke around inside!
http://forums.xbox-s...l=

Jan 25… MATRIXMAN “you ask endless questions... just read tutorials” http://forums.xbox-s...l=
Good to see at least he is consistant… still telling others to read tutorials. Someday he may read one. Maybe one of his own at least.

Same day.. one of the few times you’ll catch MATRIXMAN saying anything close to nice..
“good man good man i like these” http://forums.xbox-s...l=

Course.. seeing a half naken chick.. at his age… is something of a rarity. Who are we kidding… he’s lucky if he sees half naked guys!

Jan 29th.. a quote of his… something that kinda exemplifies who he is… MATRIXMAN
“bumpdiddly im bored, i need money” Same day… MATRIXMAN “i've answered this questions around 15 times, search your shit” http://forums.xbox-s...l=

Jan 31st rolls around… and MATRIXMAN is introduced to HACKED BY CHUCKLES SITE by Scorpion! http://forums.xbox-scene.com/index.php?act=ST&f=24&t=28452&hl=&#entry188765

Feb 1st… new month… same old MATRIXMAN.. now he’s miffed that people don’t search and read his tutorials… MATRIXMAN “I dunno HOW many times i've copied and pasted my tutorial for connecting to pc and going fast, just follow every step here” http://forums.xbox-s...l=


Feb 4th… old habit die hard.. as now MATRIXMAN finally stops posting illegal BIOS files publicly. But uses XBOX-SCENE.COM PM service to aid in the distribution of these files! MATRIXMAN “no one will help you with that... check your pm man” Doesn’t take a brain surgeon to figure out what he’s doing here.. now does it? http://forums.xbox-scene.com/index.php?act=ST&f=18&t=29092&hl=&#entry194032

Feb 6th… Now we see how smart he is… as he nearly severs his Thumb while modding his XBOX. Is this a guy you want to MOD your XBOX? Or Paint/Cut holes in it? http://forums.xbox-scene.com/index.php?act=ST&f=4&t=29464&hl=&#entry196762

Feb 7th Another big day… this day sees MATRIXMAN slandering others for allegedly taking credit for his tutorial by “rewording it” http://forums.xbox-s...=16&t=29673&hl=

Guess he wanted UNIVERSAL rights to any description of necessary steps in achieving that singular goal.. despite having not done anything unique… or contributing to the scene at all!

Feb 8th rolls around.. we see more of his expertise in CASE modding.. as he fucks up his JEWEL
http://forums.xbox-s...l=

More on the 8th.. MATRIXMAN “haha im a newb? wtf do you know. You are having networking problems, i did that easily, your the dumb fuck, don't call me a newb when you can't even fucking network” http://forums.xbox-s...l=

Now… that statement isn’t exactly true.. now is it? Loads of trouble with the chips.. trouble with the networking… by your own posts you have had difficulty in EVERY area of the scene!

MATRIXMAN
“I recently painted my xbox but it smudges and gets finger prints on it, i bought the rust proof spray paint.” This is the message from a topic he started.. instead of doing a search. Just more evidence that this guy knows nothing about modding/painting XBOX’s! http://forums.xbox-s...=24&t=29791&hl=

Feb 10th…for those paying attention… remember when MATRIXMAN was introduced to CHUCKLES site on painted XBOX’s.. and how much trouble MATRIXMAN has had with PAINT and the JEWEL etc… GOOD! Now it get interesting. He’s now decided that he is a PRO Painter… turned out he is a PRO liar.

First… in NEWB fashion… he posts his “PIC” of a PAINTED XBOX…
“<img src="C:Documents and SettingsJonathanMy DocumentsMy Picturesjon">” guess he didn’t have a clue what to do to post his PIC.. so.. he passes off CHUCKLESS site as his own… MATRIXMAN “that's it right there,” http://forums.xbox-s...=12&t=30239&hl=

Feb 12th… PAYPAL stopped working for MATRIXMAN… We can only hope it was because someone finally bagged his ASS!

Still using pointers to Chuckles Pics on the 12th…
http://forums.xbox-s...l=

Still making some interesting quotes… “you came back and contradicted yourself and made yourself look stupid, immature, and irresponsible. Don't bitch if your the hipocrit.” http://forums.xbox-s...=20&t=30218&hl=

Same thread.. he goes on the offensive.. and decide to but in and attack the friendship of GACKT and KAZ. I don’t defend KAZ one way or the other… but his comments are so way out of line.. and not based on quotes.. or any reality whatsoever… “well first off it sounds like you two guys were having cyber sex... it prooves you guy are homos..keep the boards clean...cyber sex in PMS not on the boards... jesus christ learn where to do it and where not to do it” More shit from MATRIXMAN!

On the 13th… again.. claims CHUCKLES work is his own.. by saying
“That's what i've done so far” then point to CHUCKLES SITE! http://forums.xbox-s...=12&t=30888&hl= http://forums.xbox-s...l=

Course.. he backtracks… cause he knows he can’t do everything in those PICS. He can’t or “won’t do the hardware mods visible. As it is.. we’ve never seen ANY of HIS pics. EVER! Same thread.. reveals that members of XBOX-SCENE.COM… have had Botched Paint jobs.. when I mean botched.. I mean damaged.. and incomplete paint jobs! Same thread!

Same thread… the only REAL TRUTH he has ever told…
“no one ever had respect man” RESPECT is earned! You haven’t earned it! Period! He'd know that if his mom and dad would smack him more!

Well… a wealth of information!


We have learned the following…

MATRIXMAN is an angry little clown.. who took weeks to perfect the installation of his early MATRIX Chips! He felt it necessary to write a MATRIX install Tutorial.. a tutorial for a chip that was the easiest chip at the time to ever install. A tutorial.. that needn’t have been written.. as other material was available! He planned to write a TUTORIAL on how to cut a HOLE in your XBOX.. and shopw you how to POKE at the innards.. in the hope of changing a setting!

MATRIXMAN. His incompetence is clear… as he botched paint jobs.. used wrong Paints, scratched Jewels, and treated customers with a general level of disrespect.

MATRIXMAN in every step of his XBOX MODDING experience.. ahs had difficulty.. with even the most trivial aspects of the scene. He continued to beg, and pump people for info which was already easily available, using any number of means including SEARCH TOOl, FAQ’s, GUIDEs, and TUTORIALS available to all members of XBOX-SCENE.com.

MATRIXMAN… from DAY ONE.. has seen fit to pursue and harass NEWBIES and WANNABIES.. in an effort to put himself over. Instead.. he has branded himself an an incompetent SHUCKSTER.. who is only on XBOX-SCENE to promote his mini enterprise. One in which he lures you into purchasing PAINT JOBS he is barely qualified to do properly!

If you have learn one thing from ready this… MATRIXMAN is someone you don’t want to do business with..nor associate with!

All I have done is lay out the FACTS.. as HE STATED THEME HIMSELF from his own POSTS! You can make up your own mind about him! I have done this as a service to XBOX-SCENE.Com.. in the same manner and intent as exposing OJRMAN and his DONATION SCAM!

It is my HOPE that XANTIUM or SYRUS… take 5 mionutes of their time.. look over this document.. and access the situation. Mayny have asked for MATRIXMAN to be removed… and in this document are the REASONS WHY!

FIN!

I bear no ill will or malice towards MATRIXMAN… this is simply a collection of HIS REMARKS!

Nah, I just informed his current high bidder of his track record. Hopefully he will withdraw his bid. Who knows I'll probably get in trouble for it but I don't care if I can do anything to stop MatrixMan from scamming people it will be worth it.
