Jared was notorious for his allegedly copied places. Many players have speculated that he exploited games in order to gain unauthorized access to places for his own personal use. Jared has claimed that he aquired these games without exploitation, and took them only because they were, according to him, "un-copylocked." The exact means of him obtaining other users' games is unknown, as no proof of his alleged hacking and/or exploitation has surfaced. His most popular games were Paintball!, which is a copy of Daxter33's game of the same name, and The Infection, which is a copy of Stealth Pilot's game The Undead Coming, with some maps added by Jared. Paintball! has received over 7.6 million visits, while The Infection has earned approximately 3.8 million visits. His place Command a Clone Army has achieved 1.4 million visits, and his copy of Welcome to the Town of Robloxia had achieved over 1.8 million place visits.
He has been banned several times for breaking ROBLOX Terms of Service. He is often criticized for adding trademark symbols to his places to make claims of ownership that were not authentic.

In addition to copying places, he copied StudioARE by establishing his own group by the name of "StudioJARE." StudioARE allegedly made threats to sue Jared for Copyright on their company name and stealing their 'RoWar' Series.
Jared has two other copied groups as well. After Vortex Security leader Chibitobi refused to take Jared's offer of 2-3 million tix to sell ownership of the group, Jared made a replica of Vortex Security named Team Vortex. He copied Vortex Security's logo, as well as their group uniforms. Jared's meeting center for the group was the former meeting area for a group named X-101st. The group gained over 5,040 members. Jared then sold the group to dudiebum10.
Jared took ownership of a group called Rebel Squad. This group was also accused of plagiarism from other groups. Jared also copied group bases and training facilities (which can be proven through his brother DominicBaca's account) used by Team Domino, a minor war group that is owned by Pieperson50, which has over 66,000 members as of July 18, 2012, and used them as his own. The logo for the group is copied from a group called Recon-Assault Team (RT). The group has over 23,040 members. The main reason why his groups would grow so much is because he would claim to give free VIP at his paintball game to those who joined his groups.
Jared would set goals for how many members the group needed to have in order to begin a training. Once the group reached said goal, Jared would change the goal. So far, his group has had only one training, and the current goal for the group is to reach a total of 35,040 members. Rebel Squad has been dubbed "The Next Team Domino," because of the similarities between both groups and their owners.
Rebel Squad has been given over to the user GOD2U. GOD2U has released a new logo for Rebel Squad and is currently working on new bases for Rebel Squad. He now owns a group called Iron Force.
Because of the sheer amount of backlash that Jared had received in his earlier days on ROBLOX, he was often the subject of scrutiny through mockery. An example of this was a video created by SharpTH in December 2011. This video was clearly intended to be sending a message addressing the animosity towards Jared, but in a rather slanderous way: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gFTm5WquzOY
After his departure from ROBLOX, Jared made videos on his Youtube channel and deleted most of his ROBLOX related content. He now has graduated from high school. He was 19 and was no longer on ROBLOX.
He has stopped stealing other people's games as he has grown older, which has aided in rebuilding his reputation. As a result of this, there are some who now like and support him after his dramatic changes. He regularly posts content related to real-life events and politics. It has been disclosed on his YouTube channel that he dislikes both Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton.
On February 4, 2017, he returned to Roblox for only one day. On May 28, 2017 he made a video stating how it felt like to be remembered by millions of players. This video can be found here. On September 22, 2017, he made another video stating that he would return to ROBLOX and would play regularly under the username, "iDream4Food." However, this account was later banned most likely due to Jared's past actions in his earlier days on ROBLOX. His new account is now Lost2Time
He made his first ROBLOX related video in 2018 on January 1, 2018, titled "I'm Becoming a Roblox Gamer" which teased a full-time return to ROBLOX. He reuploaded some of his old ROBLOX videos in mid January and made a video revisiting his old game, titled "The Infection."
His last ROBLOX related video to-date was uploaded on February 10, 2018 which can be found here.
