Jacobs goes to Hawaii with fan money!

Lol...  

 

I got a recent kickstarter email where the new community manager was introduced.  Jacobs didn't send it because he is in Hawaii.  Also--for the first time ever in these emails I think--there was a request to see if anyone wanted to meet Jacobs in Hawaii.

 

Am I the only one who thought...how lame...he is in Hawaii and wants to make it a business expense?  So he wants to meet fans so he can use fan money and deduct things with the IRS.

 

Don't bother trying to deny it.  It is about as blatant as blatant can be.

 

It is better than *someone* R---- G---- going off into space when Tabula Rasa was about to launch because he had daddy issues.  But still, making your Hawaiian vacation an excuse to get tax credits and spend fan money is kind of lame.  Can't you just go to Hawaii and enjoy your vacation, without trying to pretend it is some work event?

    Isn't it possible he spent his own money on the trip?

    This folks is the art of starting rumors. I see what you did there. Proof of your accusations or your words will forever be hollow.

    Anything that guy does is tainted forever. The Op might be right, the OP might be wrong. But the one thing we do know is Jacobs is a lie and a cheat.

     

    There's no rumor to that. Only fact.

    I am not a biz law major... But i am pretty sure he does not need to arrange a paltry meet n greet in order to have this trip deductable (if that is even what is happening) there are plenty of ways to do that any way.

     

    It is kind of fun that he checks to see if there is any interest, seeing as he could just have told you all once he came back.

     

    Also aint that the kicker with donations... You have shid n less to say about how the money is spent. =P
