google Australia lacking intestinal fortitude, censors Jenman link about Castran Gilbert

Filed under: real-estate — arandomperson @ 12:50 pm

This google Australia link has excised results, but does have a link to chillingeffects.org so what was censored can be viewed: http://www.google.com.au/search?hl=en&q=Castran+Gilbert

The same search from the main(?)/USA Google has the original results, linking to the Jenman article that expounds on Castran Gilberts practices.

Jenman has invited Castran Gilbert to sue him directly. So far they have not. This speaks volumes for the validity of their claims.

‘So sue me’ taunt to agents over ‘defamatory’ web articles – The Age article on the matter.

Article in the Australian Real Estate Blog

And on BoingBoing

update: reading further, Mark Forytarz, one of the principle characters in this sorry story has some kind of involvement with the Liberal party.

Interestingly a google search on Mark Forytarz on the international google shows up the full story, while a search on the local google shows the censored version of the results.


  1. So you gonna name the agent from Ray White Noble Park that screwed you?

  2. Well I mainly dealt with one person but I can’t say for sure it was that particular agent who screwed it up for us, as on the night of the auction several others were also on hand to help with the process of signing of the contracts, plus I am not sure if this person is employed to do the legwork of meet and greet of prospects also did all the paper and vendor interaction.
    Although the net result was that due to either their or the vendors actions/inactions/incomplete pre-auction paperwork (or some combination thereof) our time consuming purchase was screwed.
    Also though the net results for us were pretty bad and have caused a lot of anger and inconvenience, a simple mistake (or sequence of mistakes) attributed to human error is the most likely explanation rather than the more predatory behaviour described in the Jenman article, as it is in the agents best interest to have a happy and clean sale so they get their comission and can move on to the next sale.

    After the hammer fell If I messed up the paperwork similarly I bet it would be a different story though!
