Dallas Mavericks owner
, celebrity dancer
, Dairy Queen manager
, and bloviating billionaire Mark Cuban has been accused of insider trading
. In its complaint
, the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission accused Cuban of selling his entire stake in Momma.com
) to avoid a $750,000 loss in 2004. But not even the government has a gag big enough to cover Cuban's mouth.
On his blog
, Cuban says the SEC is picking on him
and presented an excerpt of a deposition
of Mamma.com's CEO.
And Cuban would like you to believe that he's being politically persecuted
for his support of the 9/11 conspiracy film, "Loose Change
." Cuban's Magnolia Pictures
, which redacted Redacted
, was said
to be interested in a distribution deal.

Can Spam Save the World? Mark Cuban
, broadcast.com billionaire, owner of the Dallas Mavericks
, and Donald Trump wannabe (though he says he's not
) is set to host a new "reality" show called The Benefactor
. The winner gets $1 million bucks.
, who bought the terribly optimistic cubansmillion.com domain, claims he has a "well thought-out" 4-step plan
to use the money to save the world.
It sounds to me like it was conceived by the underwear gnomes
. He fails to explain just how sending 50 million spam emails a day "generates 250 million dollars annually for charitable causes . ($5 in annual earnings per member enrolled.)"
I'd be interested in hearing what others with experience in email marketing think. A viable idea or just crackpot self-promotion?

Dallas Mavericks coach Mark Cuban wants a little privacy. Is he entitled?
As a general rule, I don't like Mark Cuban. Prior to reading this article (from Dallas Online
), which fark.com
described as "Transcript of Mark Cuban heated call," I expected to groan at more of his braying and obnoxious behavior
. But in large part, I can't deny that Cuban may have a point in asking a reporter not to publish information on Cuban's relationship with his fiancee. Much of what he said makes sense, or at very least raises interesting questions about the rights of the press and a celebrity-hungry public over those of the public figure (and his friends and family). Who's right here, and who's wrong? (via fark.com
