    @maggielang I love that Klout thinks I am influential in Jewish and Saudi Arabia ... where as I am influential in neither.

    Actually the only place he is truly "influential" is in his hyperactive imagination...

  2. influential in jewish?

  3. Has this on-the-job injury of Frischling's been posted yet?

    "I spent a day in Park City during the Olympics unable to shoot because my eyes were watering for three hours after I made the mistake of saying I'd like to try a half rack of the hot sauce. "

  7. Congratulations on the first year of FF. The fans commend you on the high quality, fact-based analysis and the non-stop LOL's. A daily dose of schadenfrisch brings a smile to my morning and helps me get through the day. FF remains my one-stop source for news on Steven Frischling.

  8. These two are unbelievable, the kids have no hope with these two as parents, as far as the "wife" or whatever the heck she is, yes, they're still living together in a small three bedroom house, I can confirm with my own eyes. She's a nurse, she says, so she's obviously book smart ONLY. Oh... One last update, Steven and Susannah are Facebook friends again!! Oh how cute!

    Well, this begs the question of why hasn't he been "cured" of his pathological bad behavior?

    ReplyDelete
  10. Less than two weeks until his court date...

    ReplyDelete
  11. Susannah is not a nurse (RN). She's a nurse's aid (CNA)... both are honorable professions but it takes about two weeks to get a CNA license. To become an RN generally takes 4 years.

    ReplyDelete
  12. I understand and wish to continue.

    ReplyDelete
  13. actually she is an RN now. You can look it up online. https://www.elicense.ct.gov/Lookup/LicenseLookup.aspx

    but yes she's still gross. And with three bedrooms, she must be sleeping with him. Or does he share a bedroom with the children?

    ReplyDelete
  14. 7:25, I can guess which sleeping arrangement he would prefer.

    ReplyDelete
  15. At least we know where the household income is coming from. She can pay all the bills while he hangs around the house tweeting all day.

    ReplyDelete
  16. At last he is tweeting about a subject where he can speak with authority on:

    "The secret to a really clean toilet, 2 parts bleach-1 part water. Smells like a hotel pool with a poor chemical balance, but it shines! :0)"

    ReplyDelete
  17. 9:54 exactly. She finances his lifestyle of sitting on his fat ass all day, being an unfit parent to three innocent kids while plotting new ways to defraud people. Can you imagine what her family must think?

    ReplyDelete
  18. they probably think the truth - that she's a lying whore

    is Niantic a small town? I wonder if the children's teachers and classmates' parents already know about what kind of trash the Frischling parents are

    ReplyDelete
  19. Susanna is living a pathetic and sad existence, capped off every day by going home to Steven Frischling. She'll never leave him and find a real man and decent father for her children. He ruins their lives every single day and she's too spineless to do anything about it.

    ReplyDelete
  20. Everything he knows about being a journalist he learned from Steven Frischling.

    Two things - He doesn't name the supposed newspaper that allegedly interviewed him because a) he is making the whole thing up or b)he knows one of the three of us would contact the newspaper to dissuade them from using him as a source.
    We'll just wait for the Google® Alert.

  22. Happy Birthday! I can remember when this site launched I was with a member of an #airline #smtravel team - they looked at me laughed and said it's about time someone called this guy out!

  23. "Flying With Fish
    Hmm conflict into from with the TSA and within an Airline on a story...Airline seems more probable at the moment.Darn research slows me down

    WTF? Yeah I really want to hire this guy for my #SM #Travel consulting needs.

    ReplyDelete
  24. Susannah should hang out with Mrs. Bernie Fine. Same despicable sort of apologist.

    ReplyDelete
  25. Its amazing how many #SM #travel #airline #avgeeks know about Steven Frischling and also read FishFraud blog.

    ReplyDelete
  26. and amazing how many #SM #travel #airline #avgeeks Fish thinks are his fans

    ReplyDelete
  27. I wish you guys would stop defaming his wife. really? he's a dick...but I really see no reason to ass fuck his wife on this site. it actually makes fish fraud lose some of it's punch.

    ReplyDelete
  28. you must be new. His "wife" is complicit in a lot of his activities.

    ReplyDelete
  29. This was 3 months before FishFuck got arrested. His adoring wife knew though. Still has no problem with it apparently!

    ReplyDelete
  30. The Bernie Fine comment is right on target. He is the sick freak who did the molesting. But because she knew about it and tolerated it, it's like she's worse.

    ReplyDelete
  31. I'm sorry, is someone forcing her to live with Steven Frischling? Is she an adult capable of making her own choices?

    ReplyDelete
  32. It does make me wonder if she's been Stockholm'd or not. But I am glad she got a RN and can make the big bucks. At least there's hope for her to run away with the kids and provide some stability in that house versus being around a con artist all day long who tweets.

    ReplyDelete
  33. 9:32, don't you see the irony in a nurse together with someone who is so mentally disturbed? not only that, leaving three kids alone all day with this nutjob?

    ReplyDelete
  34. she's never known a real man so she doesn't know any better. anyway enough talk about her. FishFuck's next court date is coming up soon!!!

    ReplyDelete
  35. I like Susanna. She's the ultimate "stand by your man" kind of gal. Even though the Fish is a potential felon and sits around at home tweeting (and sometimes cleaning the toilet) she still sticks up for him. I'd like a woman like that.

    ReplyDelete
  36. Hopefully soon, real soon, Steven will be cleaning stainless steel toilets.

    "Wow, someone really Walski'd that photo."

    "This photo needs some pop, maybe I should Detrichify it a little bit."

    You don't want to be the photog who's name can easily become a usable term that is understood within the industry.

  38. Ridiculous profile (below) SF uses in Quora. Pure fantasy. 8th most influential online travel company?! Forget the ranking, what "company" would that be? "Aviation pro", "Top influencer", and my favorite "Trusted authority". Yea, trusted and SF go hand in hand don't they?

  39. No real people in #airlines #travel cares. The only people that follow him are non-industry types that don't know any better.

    That's right "I play with airline social nedia" rather than actually get paid as an #airline #sm consultant and of course I never travel anymore, so that.

  43. KLM was probably the last paid job

    ReplyDelete
  44. ^3:44 Shaskank at SimpliLying is same self-aggrandizing, know it all as Frischling. They were buddies until FF came along and exposed him. Frischling was dumped real quick after that.

  45. Looks like Steve forgot these top ten industry rankings on his resume.

    Man, you cannot pay enough for this kind of instruction.
    Has anyone ever seen a client list from this guy? Most people I know using SM for promoting a consulting business list their clients to help potential customers gauge the success of the consultant. So why doesn't Mr. Wonderful here do that?
    Oh that's right, he doesn't have any actual paying clients. #stayathomeDad

    ReplyDelete
  50. If he had an actual client, we would know about it immediately. There would be non-stop tweeting about every interaction and if a trip involved, every stop of the way. No clients.

    ReplyDelete
  51. "I spend a lot of my time going back and teaching companies how to use tools they are already using."

    ...the door.

    ReplyDelete
  52. To think that he actually believes he knows enough about social media that somebody would hire him as a "strategist and executor" is pure fantasy.

    ReplyDelete
  53. Steven, maybe the CT prison system will allow you to take over their Facebook page. How much longer until you're locked up? What will all of your clients do while you're repaying your debt to society?

    Steven, you're a sad, sad little man... but you, through this website, give me SO MUCH enjoyment.

    ReplyDelete
  54. So tonight ABC World News had a story on the most important tweets of 2011, and I am shocked....SHOCKED....that the ridiculously prolific and self-important tweeter Steven Frischling was not mentioned once.

    ReplyDelete
  55. "Flying With Fish
    I just got a check from a very large company for "Social Media Engagement Advancement - Twitter" and I don't recall ever working with them.
    42 minutes ago"

    That is most likely because:
    A) You have not received any check since
    B)You didn't do any SM work for any large company because everyone knows that you are a complete fraud and nothing more than a mindless tweeting #stayathomeDad

    Carry on!

    ReplyDelete
  56. Welfare check?

    Anyway, next Friday = Fish's court date!

  57. "Flying With Fish
    @soleynm I have written about the financial advantages of fractional jet usage for corporations for Aviation Week a while back,

    If you search the Aviation Week online archive you will find no articles, as in we pay so you write, for his byline. You do however see six blog entries, as in we'll take free content anytime. Of those six returns only one is actual content he "generated". The jet share blog post ran two and a half years ago as a guest commentator for a vacationing AW blogger.
    Every time we deconstruct his tweets, we get to see the real don-nothing Frischling instead of the virtual creation of a #stayathomeDad.

    ReplyDelete
  58. 10 will get you 2 in Frischling's world.

    ReplyDelete
  59. Trust me, there was no fantom check that arrived. It's just yet another way for him to act as if though he's SO DAMN BUSY that he can hardly keep his head on straight.

    There was no check, period, end of story.

    Steven, please post a photo of the check on your silly little photo-sharing site that has 96 photos of you pretending to either sleep or work in an airport or airplane. Please. If you post a photo of the check, and it looks legit, I SWEAR I'll never post here again.

    That's funny because I just called China May at 215 Main Street in Niantic and they don't have any delivery orders for Frischling...

  61. ^11:14 thats every freelancers wet dream. A check shows up and you forgot why they are paying you. Riiiighht.

    ReplyDelete
  62. ^5:00 FF fans are watching his every tweet - won't Frischling realize that the truth squad is out there. He should just give up and start telling the truth.

    ReplyDelete
  63. 5:00, you silly, don't you realize Frischling gets his Chinese food delivered straight from Beijing?? Complimentary express delivery, of course.

    ReplyDelete
  64. If Frischling started telling the truth, his daily tweets would drop to 0.

  65. December 8, 2011 - Finally evicted from Niantic CT home after failing to pay rent for months. Pictures from the home taken immediately after he was evicted show that he and his three children lived in squalor.
