  6. The link above leads the reader to a born-again Christian site, run by
    Jason Gastrich, as self-styled minister who believes these kinds of
    antics are perfectly fine as long as one is "once-saved-always-saved."

    Jason's ministry is allegedly non-profit, operating under the laws of
    the State of California. This particular bit of false advertising and
    misdirection will be reported to the appropriate authorities.

    If you're looking for training content for the MCSE and CCNA
    professional certifications, you will NOT find it at the above link.
    Instead, you will find Jason's peculiar brand of fundamentalist

  12. Indeed.

    This one, particularly.

    Worry not. He claims to run a tax-exempt ministry in California.
    Those are regulated by certain laws; and he also runs a web hosting
    business, which is also governed by certain laws.

    Jason has been under scrutiny for some time, mostly for his antics in
    other groups, his removal of negative reviews of his "book" at Amazon
    and his purchasing of domain names so that he can use them to redirect
    users to his web site. Those were always dishonest, but this is a
    pretty flagrant case of false advertising and even outright lying to
    his readers.

    I fins it almost unbelievable that any religious type would be capable of
    lying... NOT!

    religion is a sales thing, nothing more nothing less.
    "'scuse me sir, would you like to buy my brand of god" and a means of
    control.. as marx said.. the opiate of the masses (or was it lennon, one
    thing is for certain it wasn't ringo)

    "men of god" are invariably the biggest hypocrites in the world..
    nothing like bring god to the masses at the barrel of a gun...

  14. Jason is quite a liar, and he presumes his "once-saved-always-saved"
    theology protects him from eternal punishment.

    I wrote a letter and an email to Hot Lava Software, making them aware
    that Jason has presumed to co-opt their company name and redirect to
    his website. We'll see what they have to say - if anything.

    Hello All,

  17. Hello, Bob.

    Well, I guess I'm confused.

    In another message, you tell us that the "program" ended. Here, you
    tell us that the link was messed up.

    But on Jason's site, he says:

    ...we were directing so much traffic to HLS
    that they decided to stop the ads for awhile
    because they were afraid of having to pay
    more money than they have! Shortly afterwards,
    they wanted to begin ads again for a much
    lower rate. We are prayerfully considering
    their offer.

    Bob Sanregret (President of Hot Lava Software)
    provides a testimonial. He says, "I was scared
    that the cost would skyrocket and at the current
    rate it looked like that might happen! (October
    13, 2004)"

    These all seem to conflict.

    If the link was messed up, then you probably didn't get more traffic
    than you could handle, so what Jason says is not true.

    If your ads no longer are sponsored through Jason's "ministry" because
    "the program ended," that, too, would conflict with the other reasnos,
    i.e., the link was messed up or Hot Lava Software couldn't afford it.

    I'm old and cynical, Bob, though not unreasonable. Still, I find it
    rather convenient that this went on for quite some time - nearly two
    weeks - and nothing happened until well after Jason's "mistake" was

    It's also a matter of record that Jason masquerades as other
    identities to hawk his book and web site(s), as well as write glowing,
    substanceless, positive reviews of his e-book at Amazon.

    And, of course, it's also well-known that Jason will hijack web
    surfers with domain names very similar to those that he opposes, so
    that when they mistype those domain names into a URL, they stand a
    fair change of being misdirected to his site - a site most surfers
    looking for those domains had no intention of visiting.

    Check, for example, and, as well as versus Other examples abound.

    It's one thing to use the fairly new and widespread availability of
    the web to forward the christian message. It's quite another to
    MISuse it. Jason misuses it, under the guise of "once saved, always
    saved," Jason feels that he can commit any sin as long as it forwards
    his rather peculiar interpretation of modern christianity.
    Consequently, he often engages in deception.

    So, as you can see, doing business with Jason Gastrich is usually
    going to be a losing proposition.

  18. < snip >

    As Jason pointed out in his single message tonight, I was wrong in my
    original assessment of his tactics and motives in posting the
    advertising for Hot Lava Software.

    While I was NOT wrong, as far as some of us have been able to gather,
    that the links posted by Jason under another assumed name in certain
    technical newsgroups led to the home page of his "ministry" and not to
    anything about Hot Lava Software, I WAS wrong in assuming from that
    that there was no agreement between Jason and that business.

    Jason has constructed redirects before, with the intent of leading
    people to his web site, apparently for the purpose of increasing
    traffic. To this end, Jason purchased domain names very close to
    those whom he opposes (and have also refuted and humiliated him) and
    uses them to generate this traffic. Examples are
    versus and versus

    I had good reason to suspect Jason's motives based on what I observed,
    but this time, those suspicions led to a wrong conclusion.

    But Bob has posted a couple of messages providing some information
    with respect to this issue, and the more important piece of
    information pertinent to this message is that Bob and Jason DID have
    some sort of agreement.

    That Jason violated the agreement in some way and that it didn't quite
    work out for them is not the issue. The issue is that they DID have
    an agreement and so I was wrong to accuse Jason of making up or
    hijacking the name "Hot Lava Software" for his own purposes.

    I retract that accusation and apologize to Jason Gastrich, Bob and
    Marti Sanregret and Hot Lava Software for my mistake in this matter.

    The retraction and apologies in this matter are offered without
    qualification. I was wrong on this matter, period.

    I will also apologize to Jason and Bob for my failure to retract and
    apologize in a more timely manner. All of this information was pretty
    clear at least about 12 or more hours ago - and I did post in that
    time period, but neglected to issue a retraction and apology at that
    time. I should have done that IMMEDIATELY upon being cleared upon
    that point. I failed to do that and it was wrong of me. So I
    apologize again, unreservedly and without qualification, for my
    failure to retract more immediately.
