So we've swung back to "I was abused and Lowtax made me lie"?
Looks like it. Granted, the video and posts she made were unconvincing to the point where I wondered if it was done on purpose to sabotage him.

EDIT: Would it be possible to add all the wife/girlfriend abuse to the OP? The OP isn't very comprehensive, and we have a lot of lurkers and new people to the site for this thread specifically. A timeline with archives would be very helpful since information is coming out so fast.

It's pretty clear that Rich did nothing wrong here. I mean, goons think he did, and goons are always wrong about everything, ergo..
he moved an unstable woman into his home, one he barely knew, while having visitation with his young daughter. He decided to get high and drunk constantly while making decisions that affect his daughter. That was extremely wrong of him.

Also, I am waiting to see what the cops wrote down about the calls they answered. Both logan and lowtax are unreliable narrators, but I doubt the cops have any reason to make shit up about whatever they saw or heard. It is normal for DV victims to be uncooperative, many states have taken the decision to charge offenders away from victims because if you rely on victims to press charges it almost never happens.

The issue with Lowtax I find od is that he moved the dumb bitch in.

He coulda flown her out put her up in a hotel or someplace and explain that due to the legal issues and his kids he shouldnt have her living with him.
That's what abusive guys do, all the lists of red flags have something about getting seriously committed way too fast, like asking to marry someone the first week you know each other or moving in together or talking about future kids etc etc. It is text book abusive behavior. They sell their girlfriend a fairy tale about what life will be like together, while at the same time seeing how many boundaries they can transgress and how many source of outside support they can sabotage. Once a woman realizes how screwed they are it is usually very hard to get away from him.

The more he provides right away, the more stuff he can take away or punish her with. Moving her in makes her more isolated than she would otherwise be, especially since she moved out of state. If she were at a hotel she might make some friends he doesn't want her to have or might be able to talk or about him to others without him around to "explain it to her patiently". It all makes perfect sense if you think about it like a control freak would.
I'd gloat that I called it, but who didn't.

What a fucking nightmare. I'm glad she's going home.

I wish Ashli had the same support tbh.

Very, very much this. Neither Burt nor Reene are facing up to their complicity in banning people trying to cover Ashli's side in GBS. It's only going to get harder for them at this point.

double-edit: I bet there'll still be some red-pill MRA cunts in SA, posting 'doesn't she have BPD, she could be lying...'
What's funny is that the stickied 'yikeseroo' thread in GBS, is playing out a lot like this one. Only, goatse and tubgirl are getting posted a whole lot more now, and they're a little bit slower at posting updated material. The mods people actually like, are bailing on the site if they aren't sticking around to join in dressing Lowtax down.

His Patreon's hemorrhaging uncontrollably, the forums are clamoring for either a statement or Richard's blood, and he's just keeping his head stuck in the sand.

I'm running out of popcorn.

I'm seeing links to this thread and discussion about it in places where KF doesn't normally come up. It would be good to get the OP updated to at least have the Lowtax Wifebeater Osyssey included. There's so much to sort through, and the thread is moving very fast.

There's a lot to compile, if people who are more familiar with this want to help. There's a brief outline in the spoiler below to get this added to the OP. Most of this is off the top of my head. If you guys want to send me a message or @ me, I can update this with pictures and archives.

EDIT: I've gotten all the most recent DV stuff with Logan archived in here, along with Megan's 2013 DV police report. If anyone could help, it would be much appreciated. I don't know how much of the stuff with Chinkwife is archived or available.

I want to show with an updated OP that Lowtax has a long history of interactions with law enforcement for domestic violence claims from multiple women, a long history of using his forum as a mechanism to punish women for disobeying him, and also that the mods knew about it and covered for him.

EDIT #2: Got the police reports regarding Ashli added in. If anyone has anything else you think should go in here, please message me or ping me in the thread.

Emily (Integral):
In 2003, Integral announces that she has broken up with Lowtax, claiming they are on good terms. This is in January.

In March, Lowtax posts a frontpage article about how she was a crazy cunt and everything was her fault. Goons believe him. This starts the pattern of every relationship failure in his life being the woman's fault because she is crazy.

Married shortly after breaking up with Integral. Married for 9 years.

2013 police report for domestic violence.

Lowtax is estranged from both of his daughters. He told off his daughter Lauren when she got upset about him being unfaithful, showing that he has less emotional maturity than a 14 year old girl.
Let Shmorky babysit his kids, and slept in a strip mall office to avoid his wife. A goon visits the office to find box wine and Ambien bottles scattered around.
Lowtax said she was crazy. Goons believed him.

Megan does not have a large internet footprint, and she's kept her family drama off the internet.

Mandy (@Mandarys Milan II):
Lowtax persues Shmorky's mentally ill ex-girlfriend, and then makes a shitty thread making fun of her teeth when she tells him to pound sand. Mandy is harassed by goons in person, and Lowtax calls her parents to harass them at 2am as punishment for her refusal. She's posted about this extensively here.

Note: I apologize in advance for the wall of text. I just want to share my perspective as someone who has known this prick IRL, been on the receiving end of his petty attacks, and the receiving end of his shrill, slurring mating call for another woman to abuse.

I still have the 2 am text messages (I've posted them on Something Sensitive in the Lowtax thread), but shit didn't get super cringey until the Facebook messages, which I'm not sure I still have access to as I disabled that Facebook account because it just kept getting postblocked, and considering Dickard blocked me, I don't know if I would be able to still get them, but I'll see if I can. They never got sexual because he got nowhere near that phase with me. We were always in this conversation loop where he would, as I see it, be trying to convert me into someone he could pursue a closer relationship with, so he wouldn't have to deal with the cognitive dissonance of being close to someone with wrongthink opinions. Not to mention the fact he could flip and reverse being associated with an eeevil nazi to "Look how I saved this girl from the bowels of Alt Right hatred!" I've seen this before so often with men it's like these SIMPs are reading off script. Only they'll eventually slip up and send me a dick pic while intoxicated and DAMN I wish Rich had done that, it'd be a repulsive thing to see but that would be an amazing thing to have to hold over his head.

When he reached out to me I genuinely did want to bury the hatchet and be his internet friend, so I always told him "Rich, we'll never see eye to eye on politics, so let's agree to disagree and just talk about videogames and bad movies and make jokes and shit", but he NEVER let up with the 'intervention' bullshit. Which is why I got the idea that he was using that as an angle to get closer to me. The way I saw it is if he wants to bury the hatchet and be on good terms with me, great, we'll make jokes on funny links we post, talk about non-sensitive topics and be casual acquaintances just like the other couple of leftist acquaintances I have.

But that wasn't good enough. He always had to get personal. Always had to psychoanalyze me and ask me things to try and get deeper into how my brain worked and why I think the way I do and what he could do to change that, as if he could do something to make me have an epiphany that everything I know is a lie, and I have a new lease on life because of it, and I have HIM to thank for it so I should give him a footjob. Like I've said, I've experienced this exact form of weird 'intervention flirting' with shitlib orbiters enough to know how this game works.

And I don't know if he was actually this obtuse or if he was legitimately trying to neg me, but he would always say "Are you sure the opinions you have about things aren't just a symptom of your schizophrenia? I just want to see you get the help you deserve." But I just found it very insulting and would ask him to stop talking about it, and he never would. Funnily enough HE was the one who blocked me, despite being a condescending prick all the time, when I made a post about some link or other and he commented "Fine! Keep your Jewish boogeyman opinions! I'm done with you!"

Basically, he couldn't get what he wanted from me. He couldn't get into my head, and therefore, he couldn't get into my pants. And after reading this thread, I find that really interesting. Rich didn't want me to be his blonde """business partner""" because he couldn't get a foothold in my brain, and through weird negging/complimenting emotional manipulation, change the way I thought about things. He was testing if I was pliable enough for him to control, and it didn't work, so he gave up and moved on to his next target.

Much like Shmorky, he seeks out women with mental illness and/or limited means. (since 2015, I don't know what Megan's story was). Ashlii was not mentally ill, but, to call a spade a spade, letting Lowtax ride bareback after one encounter and rushing into marriage with him shows a good deal of naivete. I'm not saying she's a bad person, I truly believe she has a good heart, just naive. And she also had no family and not a dime to her name. That plus her immigration status was perfect for Rich to keep her under his thumb. I fall into both categories so he tried with me, but I wasn't his preferred type of crazy.

And now there's Logan (BPD and limited means due to unemployment, also much younger than him), who I'm sure appeals to him in a major way, considering BPD people have little personality of their own and just chameleon-like mirror the personality and interests of the people they're with, and mold themselves into what they think is the ideal man/woman a potential partner wants. You can see it already, the way Logan mimics his WACKYZANY humor and put that dumb queer pronoun shit on her social media to appeal to his crowd.

Lowtax doesn't want a woman on equal footing with him. He doesn't even want a woman with a mind, personality, interests, or interpersonal relationships of her own. Her views on everything must match his or he'll hound her until they do, his interests are the only ones that matter and if she dares to want him to engage in her interests - 'fuck you, you can sit upstairs alone while I get high off my balls and slur incoherently on youtube.' Everything must revolve around Lowtax. Lowtax must be the be all and end all in his woman's life. His entire life is like a case study on clinical narcissism. You can see it in every friendship and relationship he's had once that person disagrees with him or he loses control of them. He even does it to his own kids! And it's all just so fucking pathetic. It's no wonder your dick doesn't work, Rich. You've become so bereft of testosterone you need to prey on a woman and your own 3 year old to feel like a big man.

PS: Does anyone know if Ashlii has a Paypal or something to donate money for legal stuff/bills? I still feel terrible that she was caught in the mix and hurt when I had my schizo episode in 2016 and would really like to make it up to her.

I wish there was someway I could help as some kind of character witness who has witnessed Lowtax's behavior first hand, ie the empty pill bottles laying around his desk at the office, him being perpetually intoxicated, and him leaving the kids with the diaper fur pedo among other things, and that Lowtax is exactly the kind of abusive cum stain Ashlii said he is, ie him googling me to find the GoFundMe page I had made for donations for my dentures, and then posting it on SA to mock me for fucking losing most of my teeth due to a medical condition. Despite, you know, me not having had contact with him or his forum for 2 years at the time he did it. And if that's what he does to someone who hasn't spoken to him in two years, I can only imagine what kind of shit he pulled with Ashlii.

Lowtax said emphasizes her mental health and downplays his attempts to fuck her. Goons believed him. This is the start of Lowtax visibly seeking vulnerable women as victims.

Ashli (Lady Ambien): [needs references, dates, images]
Married shortly after divorcing Megan. Immigrant from Canada.

They have one daughter, Sloane. Sloane is currently living with Lowtax as her mother is stuck in a women's shelter with a tenuous legal status. Lowtax seems determined to win custody of Sloane specifically to crush his soon to be ex-wife's feelings by depriving of of her daughter.

Lowtax either withheld or somehow fucked up her visa. Lowtax's mother was her visa sponsor. Because of her immigration status, Ashli was unable to legally work and was unable to get a driver's license. This meant she was trapped and 100% dependent on him for everything. Ashli was vicious towards his previous wife Megan, which ends up being ironic later on.

During their marriage, Lowtax claimed that his spine and neck crumbled to dust. He claimed the pain left him bedbound and unable to assist with any household responsibilities. This meant that Ashli was alone, caring for a toddler, caring for her deadbeat husband, and caring for multiple large breed dogs. Lowtax had trapped her as a live-in servant by keeping her in immigration limbo.

There was a police report for domestic violence perpetrated by Ashli against Lowtax from March 2018, which I'll post a little bit later because it is the ultimate in petty, spiteful autism by Lowtax.

Over Thanksgiving 2019, Lowtax went to Utah for a business trip to meet up with a media consultant to assist with rebranding SA. If you think this sounds suspicious, it is. He used the trip to meet up with Logan Day, a self-professed bipolar 27 year old with substance abuse issues. Ashli reached her breaking point, and while Lowtax was away, she withdrew $3,000 from a joint account and fled to a domestic violence shelter with the help of the wife before her, Megan.

Lowtax reported it to the police as a parental kidnapping two months later in January. Right away he tells the police that his wife is here illegally, even though it would have been his responsibility as her citizen husband to secure her visa. He used her cell phone to figure out what shelter she was in, prompting Ashli to change shelters as she feared for her and her daughter's safety. He later lies to the police officer about not knowing where she was.

Megan reports to police that she suffered mental and physical abuse during her marriage, and this motivated her to help Ashli. Megan said that the 2018 domestic assault was the result of Ashli defending herself from Lowtax, and he uses his wife's immigration status to threaten her with deportation and separation from her daughter. Megan is able to corroborate Ashli's account of what being married to Lowtax is like.

Megan doesn't really have any reason to help Ashli. Ashli was a piece of shit to Megan, parroting Lowtax's stories about how crazy and what a bad mother she was.

Ashli speaks to the police, confirming that Lowtax is violent, abusive, and threatens her with deportation for disobeying him. She confirms that she cannot work and does not have a car. Additionally, Ashli is afraid that Lowtax's substance abuse problem will mean that he will be incapable of caring for their daughter if he gets custody. In the report, the police officer seems sympathetic to Ashli and assists her in getting legal help. He is not concerned with the 2018 domestic assault indecent. Using immigration status as a tool for domestic abuse is extremely common.

The police officer determined that the case did not rise to the level of parental kidnapping because Ashli fled with good cause.

The full report is below.

1/17/20 Parental Kidnapping Police Report said:

Lowtax's statement to the police is below. He claims that he doesn't know where they are (lie) and that he is concerned for his daughter (lie).


Ashli made an anonymous GoFundMe from the shelter, asking for $3,000 to help with day to day expenses and legal expenses for both her immigration case and her divorce. The GoFundMe was discovered by goons and spitefully reported in an effort to make sure that she stays homelesss and without legal representation. Lowtax brags about intentionally depriving his wife and toddler daughter of resources while they are in a shelter.


The situation looks pretty damning for Lowtax. Suddenly, Null receives an 'anonymous' email with a 2018 domestic violence report on 2/15.

Sent from an unknown person via a throw-away email. This is the original domestic violence report.

TL;DR: Ashli hit Lowtax on the neck after his surgery and he went down hard, suffering a concussion. The police were called because Lowtax had warned her after the 2nd time she had hit that he would do so.


Interestingly, the print date for this report is 1/15/20, two days before Lowtax made the parental kidnapping report. User @NGGYU had previously filed a request with the police department for this document and was denied because this case had been dropped. We had no way to access it. An eagle-eyed user @Leonard Helplessness spotted a file on Lowtax's desktop on a 2/11 stream that looks awfully like the same police report.


Lowtax sent this report to Null to smear his wife while she was in a domestic violence shelter. Normal adults that don't abuse their wives don't do this shit.

The thread for their divorce is here.

Lowtax said she was crazy. Goons believed him.

Logan (Toad in a Hole on SA, @Mormon BPD Cokewhore):
Crazy BPD sidepiece that he shacks up with over Thanksgiving, leaving his wife alone to take care of three pit bulls and a toddler. This is after he claims that his crumbling spine makes it impossible to get out of bed. Apparently he's not so disabled that he can't fly to Utah to bang a Mormon slampig.

Moved in with Lowtax around (date?) as a 'business partner', frequently appearing in streams to trash Ashli. Logan claims that she is a high power media consultant who took on the task of re-branding SA as some kind of unpaid passion project. Her and Lowtax make no secret of their relationship. They get drunk together on streams. During this time, Lowtax is granted temporary custody of his toddler daughter, a child that he seems to have no interest in. Ashli is still in a women's shelter and keeping a low profile.

Logan gets ugly fillers and uses every opportunity she can to both flaunt her relationship with Lowtax and insult his current wife Ashli. This post is just days before the domestic violence blowup.


On 6/22, Logan makes a Facebook post alleging domestic violence. The tagged location is a bar that is not open during the time of the alleged assault. The post is quickly taken down.


There was a domestic violence call to Lowtax's house a few hours before she made her Facebook post.

Logan comes to post on KiwiFarms as @Mormon BPD Cokewhore to exonerate Lowtax. Her post is manic and confused. It doesn't make any sense. She blames herself for getting hit.

Hey guys, it's that "Bogan Lay" young lady here, using my favorite pseudonym you gifted me (it's funny!!! You guys have a good time, clearly, even though neither of the 3 elements of my username apply in any way, I still still think it the best username I've ever been gifted. Thank you!)

Hope you are somewhat uh, "pleasant" about my presence here, but I'm no stranger to what this forum is about. There's only so many ways you can call me crazy, plastic-surgery ugly, and a useless amount of space, and you people have just about covered the brunt of that entirely from when I still read this way back when post-18 Gen Z wasn't doing slutty dances on video. My question for you is: is this a date night activity with your lover(s?) to post hateful things on these forums? If not, definitely Livestream your attempts. I'm sure it would be very sexy, with lots of hot bods. You all have hot bods, right? That's how you're so readily able to pass judgment, right? Of course!! Please do post your beach bods lads and we harlots will be certain to rate you!! Just know hermanos, that I rate for pizzazz. Do a Fortnite dance boys and I'll give you a good score! 😘

Anyway, I've been instructed not to post here, ever, under any circumstances, but since my dogshit leaked out, I might as well address it. Last night, I had a severe panic attack. I received news that my dear maternal grandfather had passed away suddenly, and I was distraught. Unfortunately I was all alone upstairs, and I went downstairs and tried to rouse Rich from his peaceful doze. He's a very peaceful person, always has been. Unfortunately, when I rose him, I was too forceful in my hysteria, and he mistook my rousing as slamming him on his cervical discs, which are central points of his pain!! (Which was NOT AT ALL INTENTIONAL, I would NEVER purposefully harm a person). Anybody who has ever know me has known that I am not a violent person, but he felt unsafe, which is deeply unfortunate and I certainly don't blame him since he was roused awake very suddenly. Now, the period in which I felt I had been "backhanded" (this was, unfortunately, my word to describe it), was actually explained to me afterward that Rich had awoken, after my rousing him, and attempted to stand upright on sweaty toes, and he fell into the desk near the side of the wall, thereby sending me falling onto the ground below. I mistook it as being an action of malice against me, but when we revised the events, it was clear that I hadn't fully understood the events due to my panic attack. Thank God for Ativan from my psychiatrist!! I'm so grateful. And I'm grateful for Rich for patiently explaining the events that my panicked mind couldn't interpret in a state of profound grief.

i was irresponsible to awaken Rich when he was sleeping, even though I needed support. In my panic, my memory was hazy and I accused him of intentionally hurting me, when he could do nothing of the sort. J mean, for goodness' sake, he has limited mobility at best and frankly total immobility in truth to truly harm a healthy young 26-year-old girl.

Rich called the police himself to ensure everyone was taken care of. It was decided that I needed some time away from my business partner for an evening so we could come back together with clear heads and not he-said, she-said. No report was taken, it was simply a matter of a young women losing her grandfather and taking the inappropriate steps to receive support in the midst of a panic attack. Thankfully, I have medication prescribed for this sort of occurrence, and Rich was quick to help me remember to take them when I was able to return to his home (it was decided that I should stay the night at a hotel because no individual was at fault or causing any problematic disturbance, it was just determined that time apart would be most healthy and beneficial for all parties involved).

Rich acted completely honorably. I was the dingus in this situation. Rich is strong and I admire that he is letting me have a safe place to stay until I find next steps for me. Rich is a man with a great deal of honor. I've had less kind treatement from police in my life. Rich is a class act and I would trust him with any young person experiencing a panic attack or worse! Any questions, let me know.

I'm so grateful that everyone is safe. Nobody was unsafe at any point, and it's my fault for making that seem different at any point. Anyway, go ahead and call me a whore, but Rich is a class act great guy and I can't wait to pay respects to my grandfather in October when LA country reopens for wakes. PEACE!! ✌

After Logan posted on KiwiFarms, something that she said was 'forbidden', there was a second domestic violence call to Lowtax's house.

Logan makes this post on Facebook on 6/23, tagging Lowtax so it shows up in his feed.

Lowtax claims that he recorded Logan lying to the police. Missouri is a two party consent state, meaning that recording her without her consent is illegal.

She made a second recanting post on Facebook on 6/24 using the "fell down the stairs" defense after the 2nd domestic violence police call.

Logan later posted a video on Facebook where she is crying and recanting her story. Her acting is stiff and fake, leading to speculation that Lowtax is forcing her to recant. (6/24)

View attachment 1403567

She is now implying that Lowtax forced her to recant her stories. (6/25)

A goon tried to warn Burt Sexual that something weird was going on with Lowtax possibly cheating on his wife in late November 2019.

We warned Lowtax she was crazy. He did not believe us.

I think it's pretty clear that Lowtax was abusive to her in some ways. Logan is crazy, but it makes it easier to mess with her, and just looking at the video it was very obvious that "Something Awful will now be destroyed because of you" was something she strongly believed, and it seems pretty clear that was Lowtax's strategy to try and fix the damage (it certainly has all the hallmarks of his strategy: poorly thought out, emotionally manipulative, stressing the possibility of everybody's precious forums disappearing, as it has always worked in the past). Add to his history of being an abusive addict and yeah, I have a hard time believing he didn't hit her.

I'm sure everything about this relationship was a drug and alcohol fueled mess on both sides though.

In other news, some hours ago one of the people in touch with Ashlii posted some information about what she intended to do, apparently, but he didn't ask her for permission, like a real fucking moron, and she asked him to delete that, so he did. This could be something big, because a lot of people were quoting it for many pages, but it's all deleted now. Probably for the best...


Are you now, or have you ever been?
The only downsides to this is the irreparable harm it has done to those poor children, who deserve none of this, and the fact that aside from upsetting the pigs on the forums, none of them will get what they deserve. Lance the festering, rotting boil that is the SA forums and the infection just spreads elsewhere. We don't get a glorious ruination of those posters and them being individually isolated, no. They'll go find their own troon-approved, ultra-hyper-further-to-the-left-than-Pol-Pot hiding place and congeal in it.


Mama, nobody sends you a turd and expects to live.

Maybe he did the lip filler himself with some old fashioned high-impact surgery.
I got the distinct impression Rich ponies up for some beauty treatments/hair do to settle her down or as an apology for something he did. I think he encouraged her to post on FB to try and make his ex jelly too.

It’s just depressing af that any woman in her mid-20’s has been convinced she needs to spend hundreds of dollars on shit like that. She should have made Lowtax spend that money on a shave and haircut for himself.
Finally SA loves her. They really really love her. She had to burn the mofo to the ground and fuck Lowtax to achieve it, but she’s finally queen bee of a dead gay comedy forum just like she dreamed about back in middle school. Dreams do come true!
