TPG has been an industry shill for years. Why is everyone waking up and caring now??
Agreed, and I stopped following them as soon as I learned anything about the game. I don't think people have been throwing shade this directly until more recently though.

I don't think they realize how selling out destroys credibility...

Who needs credibility when you're pulling in that much money?

The money comes from the credibility. If everyone realized how crappy his credibility was, he wouldn't have a following, and in turn, wouldn't have an income. Prey on the ignorant.

He makes his money by spending 8 figures a year on advertising and getting n00bs, not from credibility.

The noobs believe he's credible. Hence "preying on the ignorant".

But then again
From the wsj article
"Banks spent an estimated $4.5 million in banner, display and video advertisements on TPG in the fourth quarter of 2018,"

That's just in one quarter. So basically he more than makes up his advertising costs from banner ads. That's before commissions

That's been his strategy since day one and it's still working.

Are there any extant paywall workarounds these days? Usually use outline.com but doesn't seem to be working here.

Also, that's a fraction of what he's making off card commissions. It's good to attract n00bs.
