I've had something similar happen to me before.  If you've done this, you've betrayed a trust; you should be ashamed of yourself.  Don't be an asshole.  Information shared between hobbyists should not be shared with bookers or providers.  This individual probably did that to get preferential treatment, thinking this kind of intel would give him more clout with the booker.  Bad form.

I recently shared something negative about a booker with a fellow hobbyist, who shall remain nameless (he is a frequent poster on this board).  He promptly shared what I told him with the booker word for word.  That has caused more issues for me with that booker and probably others as well since they seem to operate in a network.  Can't imagine what would motivate him to do something like that.  So don't trust anyone in this game.  Not the bookers, not the providers, and not even your fellow hobbyists.

you're just coming to this conclusion. Hobbyists and providers love to gossip.  Didn't your parents tell you if you don't have anything nice to say about someone don't say anything at all. Oh and that old saying "bros before hoes" and in this instance "bros before bookers" you didn't real think that was true did you?

Wow! You are such wise man!  I am truly not worthy.  

I guess I should never share anything negative with you, including when an ad was fake or a provider has a real bad attitude.

Maybe that's why I have never seen a review by you.

I have not had this particular experience, but I have had others.  For example loaning money to a provider who was broke so the hotel would not kick her and her things out in the rain.  I will probably never see that money again.  This particular person borrowed money from me before and repaid it and admittedly she probably would repay if she could.  So we will see.  If she repays it I might still provide a bridge loan in such an emergency.  If not, it is her loss because this problem has come up for her a few times and she won't get such a courtesy again unless repaid.  Granted it was not much, less than the cost of one session.  But it is the principal of the thing.  I expect people to keep their word to me.  If not, then in the long run they are only hurting themselves.  Under the given conditions it was the right thing for me to do at the time.

I think he's spot on that bro's before ho's is bs'  in most cases maybe it works out, but the truth is tha there will always be some golden pussy out there who will make a guy forget his friends and maybe even worse.  If it hasnt happened to you count your blessings.  I think most guys would be ashamed to admit the truth.

Please post the snitch's handle (or at least pm me) so others won't make the same mistake.  You have a solid reputation and a lot of experience.   Other hobbyists should respect that, and those that don't should be outed.

If someone screwed you  over, why don't you
let us know who did it. We all want to know
who to beware of.

It is a lesson for all of us, a reminder that nothing is really private. Be careful what you say to others.

OP: In my opinion, let sleeping dogs lie.

...just don't get it.  I once mentioned something private in a PM and later the guy put it on the boards.  You have to know with whom you're communicating.

It is a horrible lesson nobody in this game is going to keep secrets. And weather it is a provider or hobbyist. your now in the know. The person whom passed your info on either had great thrill to repeat it to cause you difficulties and make himself feel shiny and honorable . Or he thought he would be in the good graces for special services with the booker.

About a gal from an agency. My review wasn't even all that bad.  It just said that she was older than her pics (about 20 years) and heavier (probably 30 LBS).  The board moderator got involved and the review ended up being disallowed.  Nowadays I don't post negative reviews but I also don't see gals who aren't well reviewed by well known reviewers.

Sorry about what happened to you.

I cant imagine that you would have any problem getting seen.  Without knowing the story, and not wanting to know your business, thx for the advice.

Have you confronted the guy?  Hopefully you can resolve the issue through pm.

Good luck.
