Doomberg, not again!

It’s like a wave of visitors coming to my blog each time Doomberg releases another post.
I mean, usually I have ~1½ visitor a day, so the wave is like 20+ a day. LOL 😀
A question to those trying “password”, “letmein”, “doomberg”, etc. as a password here, are you serious???

To satisfy everyone else’s curiosity:
Doomberg is a team of 2+ people;
– one woman, one man;
– colleagues from work, not working there anymore;
– this work place is, let’s say, energy/plastics/chemicals related;
– one is Canadian, another one is American, both live in the States;
– one has MBA, another one has degree in chemistry;
– they have other Twitter account(s).

DISCLAIMER: Not an investment advice! 🙂 I might be wrong in anything and in everything written above and below. I’m doing it for fun and hope you enjoy!

  1. The latest piece by Doomberg was a bit of a surprise for me. They will go behind a paywall in 2 months.
    Here is a screenshot from that post:

    And here is a screenshot from another post back on November 1, 2021:

    Why don’t Doomberg keep their promise? Whether it’s fear, greed, or dementia, I don’t know.
    But it looks like time is coming to open access to my posts.

  2. I think knowing what you are buying is as important as knowing who you are buying it from.

    I’ve decided to not open access to my posts as there are some sensitive details and will just post some brief info here.
    Without further delay, meet your team behind Green Chicken Media LLC:

    Later, it was uploaded to other clipart websites and modified many times over.
    While other chickens are not so lucky, green chicken has become a trademark (probably still pending):
    There are likely other humans and animals 😀 involved, but that’s it for now.

  3. Glad you exposed these two, considering how they broke their promise regarding the paywall. Also, people giving financial advice should be willing to identify themselves. In this case, the resumes of the creators don’t justify the arrogance which oozes from their substack and their podcast appearances. It seems they want to give the impression of being heavy-hitter fund managers, when in fact they seem to be peanut players. In that light, the anonymous approach makes sense. And by the way, their Malcom Gladwell-style of writing–taking a quirky intro anecdote and extrapolating that into (shaky) macro conclusions–is tiresome and fiscally irresponsible.

  4. Thanks for this. I enjoyed reading their free posts but their subscription rates are pricey, especially given the recent price increases in energy and food.

    Better to put $30 per month into oil and gas investments or buy food for the six sigma event rather than into an anonymous green chicken pockets.

  5. Just to clarify, I’m not trying to convince anyone against subscribing to Doomberg’s Substack but merely provide some extra information for a more educated decision.

  6. My post won’t be complete without these 2 screenshots.
    One of the possible reasons for Doomberg’s anonymity (failed twice?):

  7. This is brilliant. Thanks for your work. The “work of our lives” horse shit he carries on with on every podcast like he’s a higher being performing gods work for the better of society is laughable.

  8. Thanks a lot for this analysis. How did you get from the trademark and logo to the names behind it?
    (p.s. i’m one of those who tried “password”, just in case you were being ironic 🙂 )
