Goldman Sachs Silences Employees

drudgesiren.GIFI can barely even type this because I’m so upset that my hands are shaking and I’m experiencing chest pains and a tingly feeling in my left arm. GOLDMAN SACHS HAS BLOCKED ITS EMPLOYEES FROM COMMENTING ON DEALBREAKER, AS REGISTERED USERS OR GUESTS. Mind you, not from *reading* DealBreaker, but from commenting on it. This is unacceptable! I must know what the Masters of the Universe are thinking and feeling at all times! God! I’m going to go throw up now, more info as it comes in.
**Obviously this is some absurd measure from Team No Rumors but if MOTU are spreading rumors I’m sure they have a good reason, and their lies are better in every way than anything anyone from [insert inferior bank here] is going to leave on some random post about Cody Willard’s health issues.

    Goldman is a firm of the past

  2. CNote says:

    Sweet. Now we can make all the unfounded accusations about that firm we want, and Goldman will never deny any of it.
    I heard from this guy who used to date this chick that has a brother that worked there that they have set up a fund that’s investing in drug-trafficking companies from Colombia that uses puppies as heroin mules. Anyone else hear the same thing?

  3. guest says:

    i heard they have booths just off the cafeteria floor where you can blow rails and pound interns…that’s just what I heard.

  4. guest says:

    CNote,
    I heard kittens, not puppies. I got this info from an occupational hypnotherapist that I see in midtown. She’s usually spot on.

  5. guest says:

    Oh just like Deal Breaker censoring comments about Mayo and eating poop.

  6. guest says:

    They are the masters of finance…Loyd doesn’t get 70mm bonuses (which he deserves every penny) for sticking his thumb up his ass. A firm of the past, I dont think so…after its all said and done they may be the only ones left.

  7. guest says:

    hmmm, #6 are you a goldman employee (follower)? shouldn’t you be working right now and not commenting on DB?

  8. guest says:

    The heroin carry trade is the least of their problems right now, CNote. This Dealbreaker ban is just a way to stop leaks about the fact that they taped an episode of ‘To Catch a Predator’ in Lloyd Blankfein’s office last night.

  9. merkin capital partners says:

    why do you like abbie cohen’s hair is so big? it’s full of secrets!

  10. guest says:

    I hear they cook their books to look better than they really are… that’s just what I hear….

  11. guest says:

    they got pissed because you guys posted up their bonus numbers.

  12. guest says:

    *pokes GS employee with stick*
    HA HA

  13. guest says:

    Goldman is a has-been, still trading on their “reputation.”

  14. CNote says:

    @8:
    Again???

  15. guest says:

    I’ll believe it when DB publishes a copy of the announcement.

  16. guest says:

    MAYO!

  17. guest says:

    @15– yeah, like they’d put out an official announcement about this

  18. guest says:

    #15 – I’m on the same page. Don’t believe a word until I see a copy of the announcement. I have several friends who work over there and I haven’t heard a thing. Bess is obviously bored / lying.

  19. guest says:

    #6 you are a giant tool

  20. guest says:

    Didn’t Bear do the same thing?
    See what happened to them.

  21. guest says:

    Clearly they seek to keep their Associate bonus numbers from our view.

  22. guest says:

    @18– you’re a fucking idiot. the firm would not put out a release about blocking their employees from commenting on a blog. maybe your friends at goldman didn’t call you about the news because you’re a douche bag?

  23. guest says:

    #2 – heard the same thing. however, i heard they were using summer analysts instead of puppies. something about wanting to upstage the mcmuffin effort.

  24. guest says:

    @20– bear blocked the site entirely, though in the grand tradition of bear genius, only made it so that you couldn’t get to the site by typing in ‘www.dealbreaker.com’ but could by typing ‘dealbreaker.com’

  25. guest says:

    @22 relax, you know @18 has no friends

  26. guest says:

    they got pissed because you guys posted up their bonus numbers.

  27. guest says:

    #22 – Actually, you’re an idiot. I’m not saying let me see the press release or the flyers they posted out in front of 85 Broad. Do you think Lloyd just said okay spread this by word of mouth guys? “No one is to comment on DB – okay now pass it on.” If this new policy is true, it was ANNOUNCED and most likely via email. So as I said, until that announcement is revealed, I don’t believe a word of Bess’s post. And by the way, I spoke to my douche bag friends at GS and they haven’t heard a thing. Then again, that could be because they’re just spreadsheet jockeys.

  28. guest says:

    relax tigers.
    the way this crap is done is the guy who signs the paychecks calls up compliance/legal and then they tell the computer monkeys to block the url.

  29. guest says:

    Oooorrrrr they just decided to block that shit and didnt make an announcement. Whens the last time you got an email from compliance saying: “From here on out bearpontstearnsuissebrothers employees will no longer be allowed to access http://www.website.com” Oh right, never.

  30. guest says:

    @27/18– “Actually, you’re an idiot. I’m not saying let me see the press release or the flyers they posted out in front of 85 Broad. Do you think Lloyd just said okay spread this by word of mouth guys? “No one is to comment on DB – okay now pass it on.” If this new policy is true, it was ANNOUNCED and most likely via email.”
    or…people who work at goldman and regularly comment on dealbreaker tried to do so today, found out they couldn’t, and told the db editors? gs is under no obligation to inform its employees of every single site it blocks, or site it blocks from commenting, and in fact would look like morons if they did. have you ever worked in a corporate environment? i mean, aside from working in one vicariously through your friends at gs?

  31. guest says:

    @27
    No. You’re still the idiot. Don’t you think it would just be the IT group implementing. What f’king e-mail announcement are you expecting to be out there?

  32. guest says:

    10:36 has it right. it’s ok everyone, 27/18 is retarded.

  33. guest says:

    27/18, never comment here again.

  34. guest says:

    #27: Wrong, it is simply an interpretation of the current rules for internet use and was not announced via email. Rather, someone obviously tried to go to Dealbreaker and got the same notice that I just got when I tried to via the GS system, stating that it is blocked.
    All your douchebag GS friends have to do to confirm this is try to access Dealbreaker themselves; douchebag.

  35. guest says:

    @27: Ask them to post a comment. That should clear things up for us.

  36. guest says:

    I am having trouble keeping up with who is calling whom an idiot!! Slow down you idiots!!

  37. guest says:

    27&18 (the same commenter) = the idiot

  38. guest says:

    how much were bonuses for analysts and associates anyways?…btw i work for a subsidiary of gs..i guess were not important to have it blocked :(

  39. blndebnker says:

    @2 – Brilliant. I did hear that.

  40. guest says:

    Idiot is the new Mayo.
    Both are available at Bearpont Shake Shack.

  41. guest says:

    @11:05– of course you weren’t blocked, unless you work at 85Broad (and maybe maiden lane/1NYP)

  42. FUNdamental says:

    Colonel Sandurz: He’s an asshole sir.
    Dark Helmet: I know that! What’s his name?
    Colonel Sandurz: That is his name sir. Asshole, Major Asshole!
    Dark Helmet: And his cousin?
    Colonel Sandurz: He’s an asshole too sir. Gunner’s mate First Class Philip Asshole!
    Dark Helmet: How many asholes do we have on this ship, anyway?
    [Entire bridge crew stands up and raises a hand]
    Entire Bridge Crew: Yo!
    Dark Helmet: I knew it. I’m surrounded by assholes!
    [Dark Helmet pulls his face shield down]
    Dark Helmet: Keep firing, assholes!

  43. guest says:

    “brill” is the new idiot

  44. blndebnker says:

    @FUN – What is that from? I know I know it

  45. guest says:

    spaceballs

  46. blndebnker says:

    OMG I’m an asshole. It’s from Spaceballs.

  47. guest says:

    spaceballs?

  48. FUNdamental says:

    @blnde – spaceballs, you disappoint me.

  49. guest says:

    #27 ask ur friend if they received the last policy change email at GS:
    “Please note,today’s BBQ Chicken in the cafeteria will be replaced with Cajun Chicken.”
    ~Lexsteelz

  50. guest says:

    This is all BS…I am a 2nd year at Goldman and am posting right now. Top bucket was $95k. We may not be as great as we used to but still have the best reputation on the street.

  51. guest says:

    Just think about DB being somewhat censored by almighty GS..goo yob Bess

  52. blndebnker says:

    @FUN – I know. I’m sorry I let you down. In my defense, I was a child when that movie came out and have only seen it like twice. I’ll go out and buy it, promise.

  53. guest says:

    I heard something about Goldman – Israeli mercenaries and Mexican Drug cartels with some money laundering thrown in…but that Is just what I heard ( nudge wink etc )

  54. guest says:

    # 40, you rule. Mayo lives at the Shake Shack.

  55. guest says:

    @55 – burn notice

  56. guest says:

    MER has banned DB- i sent a link to a friend and they could not open it at work (MER london)

  57. guest says:

    heard through the grape vine that Blankfeins doing a couple of guest tracks on the Wu Tang Clans new record

  58. FUNdamental says:

    @blnde – I was too, that’s not excuse. You should be sure and purchase that movie at ludicrous speed!!!
    @50 – I believe bess has checked your ip freely. Oops.

  59. guest says:

    Ahahaha #49

  60. guest says:

    I am pretty sure number 10 is going to jail after that comment…the SEC is probably pulling up to his house right now.

  61. guest says:

    @28 we prefer to be called computer chimps

  62. guest says:

    Stay classy GS

  63. guest says:

    Lunch time. Check out the line at the Shack.
    http://www.shakeshacknyc.com/camera.html
    On three, have your interns wave. OK?

  64. guest says:

    Bess – Cypress Advisors is a DC lobbying firm. Since second years at Goldman are pretty much useless at making money for their own firm, maybe they’ve started loaning them out as temps? I bet no one saw this coming, but Lloyd Blankfein is a genius. HR Outsourcing is clearly going to be the next big growth area for Goldman.

  65. guest says:

    dealbreaker = timewaster.
    the interns will have to back to playing Windows solitaire.

  66. guest says:

    good thing you get to still waste your time here, douche @66.

  67. guest says:

    No panic. They should join Merrill Lynch where anything goes!
    Discrimination bigotry fraud if you ask Mass. state prosecutors or EEOC

  68. guest says:

    I work at Goldman Sachs. What are you going to do Mr. Blankfein? Fire my ass for posting on dealbreaker from my iPhone from the toilet stall? Well in that case come and get me. I work on the 17th floor of 85 Broad. And if you’re fast enough, you’ll get me with my pants down in the bathroom stall typing on my phone.
    Whatever happened to free speech in this country. Well at least I have a job at Goldman, so I’m not complaining. But seriously this policy sucks. Whatever, as long as my firm doenst go under, it’s all good.

  69. guest says:

    1 word:
    Bloomberg…

  71. guest says:

    > What are you going to do Mr. Blankfein?
    > Fire my ass for posting on dealbreaker
    Maybe he will, 69, the next time he needs a reason to cut some people loose. It’s easy to pull the string on each and every person who did, once somebody decides to look. Apparently, somebody in the tech division decided to look. Who’s going to look next?
    I have a lot of time on my hands lately and in today’s job market I’m kind of glad you find flapping your gums here on company time more important than holding a position at a firm like that. It means more motivated people will have a chance at your job. Maybe even me.

  73. guest says:

    I recently lost $48000 in the Equity INN securities fraud aided and abeted by Goldman Sachs. They set up a shell partnership called W2007 Grace Acquisitions which is run by Goldman Sachs through their REPIA division.They paid 20% more than the market for the commom shares and then exchanged the Equity Inns preferred for Grace preferred which has no assets.Then, surprise, surprise, announced they are not going to pay preferred dividend because THE LOAN COVENANTS ALLOWED THEM TO.aND WHO WROTE THE LOANS? yOU GUESSED IT-gOLDMAN SACHS MORTGAGE DIVISION.HOWARD SILVER AND PHILLIP MCNEIL, THE CHAIRMAN AND CEO MADE MILLIONS WHILE EMPTYING OUT THE PENSION FUNDS OF ORDINARY PEOPLE.
    WANT TO KNOW MORE? CALL ALLIE ORTVED SWEENEY AT 2129023236 SHES THE GOLDMAN SACHS OFFICIAL IN CHARGE OF THE COVERUP.BUT SHE WON’T ANSWER.

  74. guest says:

    Yes, it is true that we cannot comment from within GS. But then again, there haven’t been so many stories worth commenting on lately. Every story line or theme has been beaten well to death already, it seems.
    BTW guest #74, your CAPS lock was stuck on. And FWIW, you are in a REIT that invests in motels!?! You think it’s not going to tank perhaps?

    Guest #75
    For your information, Equity Inns
    invested in mid price hotels which
    are doing fine. The company had more
    than enough money to pay the
    preferred dividend. They used it
    rather to pay a price 20% percent
    above market value for the common
    stock, much of which was owned by
    the management, and seized the
    preferred for no compensation.
    Strangely enough, Howard Silver,
    the CEO of Equity Inns, is now on
    the board of Grace Acquisitions I,
    as is Aly Ortved, the Goldman Sachs
    REPIA VP who negotiated the deal for
    GS.
    #75, can you spell insider trading?
    Or securities fraud?
