@MirnaMinkoff He insinuated Null and MapleWife are turning KF against him.
That's funny, because before he showed up, he was well regarded enough that when he did show up, he was given a tremendous amount of slack and arguably practically blown. By the time he left in a tiff, he had already burned all that goodwill. I'm pretty sure nool had absolutely nothing to do with that.

And leafwife has barely said a word since she fled his abuse into a shelter, while LowT was incessantly gloating, taunting her, threatening to have her deported, and making shit up about her.

There are parts of SA that don't currently have AIDS and I think most "normal" goons just stick to there and avoid the drama entirely. For me, the coupons board, some of the games boards, the sports board, and so on - although if I got banned at this point I don't think I'd re-reg just for those.
TBH I felt this way for a long time. I only ever posted in GBS or specific games threads and a lot of the super weird stuff had to be pointed out to me by a friend. Also reading E/N threads for the schadenfreude.

I still do it occasionally, but if I got banned yea I wouldn't rereg at this point.

What good qualities does lowtax have anymore that would require effort in turning anyone against him? He literally does nothing now but complain about his misfortunes and being surrounded by people who have screwed him over. Which is ironic since the only person to significantly benefit financially from his website is/was himself. He pays his employees peanuts if anything at all, and then throws them under the bus if anything goes wrong.
Even when ads on his site serve malware, it is the forum users fault for not hand-delivering a message alerting him to that fact.
He gives nobody any reason to be on his side, except that 20 years ago he actively created content people liked.

I don't know about you guys, but if you're having sleep problems to the point where you are slurring your words and having trouble making yourself intelligible, you probably shouldn't go online and start streaming. It's not like anyone's forcing him to expose all this to the world.
And if that cocktail he posted doesn't knock you out you have an insanely high tolerance to all of it and are at a high risk of OD.

I didn't think LowT was quite at the "wake up dead" junkie level yet but since he's revealed exactly how many drugs he's combining it's seeming more likely.

I don't think he's getting all the meds at the same pharmacy and I don't think he's getting all of the scripts from the same doctor. I think he has multiple scripts for the same drugs from different doctors being filled at different pharmacies. Has he mentioned surgery or any kind of treatment for his back or is he just medicated? As a business owner at that income level he'd have to pay full price for his own insurance of he has it at all, but for his multiple scripts he'd be needing to see "concierge" doctors where you pay cash and basically get whatever script you want. I already figured he was doing this with Ambien but literally every drug he listed has potential for abuse so it wouldn't surprise me if he has multiple scripts for all of them to be able to be that trashed 24/7 and have such a high tolerance he still doesn't sleep.

And nice try on the banme thread, buddy. Good luck finding me. Even if I got banned you post literally everything publicly on FB and your streams are public too. And you're so fucking stupid that we keep pointing this out and you just keep doing it.

There is no way all of those scripts are coming from the same doctor. It's multiple scheduled substances that all interact with each other. He has to go to different doctors and deliberately withhold information about which drugs he's taking in order to get that cocktail. He also can't fill all of those scripts at the same pharmacy for the same reason. Their computer system would flag them and/or the pharmacist would refuse to fill them. Doctors and pharmacists are very aware of who is drug seeking, and it's become a lot more difficult for junkies to doctor shop for pills. It still absolutely does happen, it's just more difficult in the past few years than it had been previously.

Either that or he's buying them illegally from the internet. Take your pick. It's a bad look either way.

I'm actually not sure about that just from the combination depending on the doses, but I'm sure he actually does that because they certainly won't fill multiple prescriptions for the same drug (Xanax) for more than anyone would reasonably take.

And come to think of it, maybe he wasn't telling the truth, but notably absent from the list is Oxycontin. You'd think someone whose spine was literally made out of Cheeto dust or whatever would be able to get that. But why would anyone with access to Oxys even be fucking around with lame shit like Tramadol?

(He might just not admit that if he got it illegally though.)

I would imagine that being from a somewhat rich and very white family might get him access to a Doctor Feelgood - although said doctor would probably prefer if Lowtax wasn't talking about all of his medications on a video stream.

If he's like junkies I've known he has a tramadol script so that when he pisses positive for opiates, he can point to the the tramadol as the reason rather than the non-prescribed percocets or oxys he's really doing. This assumes he's going to a pain management specialist who tests him every visit or every other visit.

Or maybe his doctor actually had him on the hard stuff but has become concerned enough to put him on the shittiest, lowest-tier opiate. Even tylenol-3's feel better and are more fun to abuse.

Third alternative is that he does have prescriptions for harder opiates and he's lying about not being on them.

It is a very bad idea to abuse tylenol-3. Not because of the opiates but because to take them in any quantity large enough for a junkie to get a buzz, you have to take highly dangerous amounts of acetaminophen. Combining this with alcohol is like dropping a nuke on your liver.

Lowtax’s public statements are the only reason we know any of this. This has been going on for almost 3 months.

The only non lowtax sourced thing is a court date from the other week which someone would have to be crazily f5ing his court records for no reason to see. Leafwife didnt mention his name in the gfm.

This is all brought on himself.

Yeah tramadol won't get you that fucked up alone but mix it with lyrica,xanax and booze it will. Mixing it with adderall can cause seizures. He has to have a pill pushing quack or is doctor shopping to get that shit prescribed all at once.
Speaking of seizures, I hope he's careful with the lyrica. I know it's in the same family as gabapentin, and gabapentin can easily cause seizures when taken in large doses

Long time ago, I sorta looked up to Lowtax. Didn't really care about him the past 10 years, but now all I needed to "turn against him" was his own posts and actions. Not null feeding me like i'm a french whore, or any of his abused lying sluts of psycho ex-wives masterminding a smear campaign out of a battered woman's shelter. Just bloatax himself. The well is now full of piss and instead of swimming to the top he keeps digging deeper.

It doesn't even make sense for him to voluntarily disclose the drugs he's on when anyone familiar with prescribing in the US, either as a patient or professionally, will instantly spot how full of shit he is. He's claiming he's on drugs that interact with each other, prescribed to a known alcoholic, and conspicuously absent from that list is the hardcore pain control he would need to function if he was telling the truth about his spinal condition. Lyrica is prescribed for neuropathic (nerve) pain, but that's not the kind of drug that would deaden pain from an injury or degenerative musculoskeletal condition. Opioids are the only real drug therapy for those conditions, and they're not even very good options. Tramadol won't do shit for what he claims is wrong with him.

No doctor would prescribe that list just out of caution for patient safety. They could be held responsible in the case of an overdose or adverse reaction, and their medical malpractice insurance carrier would sue the daylights out of them.

His list reveals that he's either:

a) a drug seeking junkie that lied to medical professionals to score more pills
b) a drug seeking junkie that bought pills from the internet
c) lying
d) all of the above

As the father of a toddler, let me say that anybody who has ever cared for a baby knows what it is to be tired for days, if not weeks. I have never slurred my words from fatigue, nor has my wife, nor any of the other parents we know.

And yeah, Ashli hasn't said shit online since this whole thing started. I have, and I shouldn't have, and I didn't have her permission. She told me in no uncertain terms not to do it again. We are still cool, but she has no desire to livestream her divorce.

I am pretty certain that Rich is going to push the "people being mean to me on the internet" angle, and somehow try to blame her for it. If I were him, I'd try like hell to keep internet shit MILES from my divorce/custody hearings, but I'm not him. Thank fuck.

He's back on the forums. Lol. This will surely go well.

@MirnaMinkoff He insinuated Null and MapleWife are turning KF against him. It sounds like it's going to be a theory he brings to court. Interesting because he appears to be the only one who has posted on here. Lmao.
I’m sure the judge would be riveted by an in-depth description of forum flames wars about Lowtax being a massive shit pile.

The only job Lowtax has accomplished in the last two years is destroying his e-cred and demonstrating what a nasty person and abusive spouse he is. He did this all by himself, via his own posts and actions, yet wants to give Ashlii and Null all the credit for it.

What a guy, at the very least Bogan Lay deserves her name above the title, in 72 point font, for exposing Lowtax as a cheating shitbag.
