"rb boasts of having over 400 FB 'friends' but I'll betcha he hasn't met in person more than 10 of them. Or even 5?"
Without reposting his whole post and commenting on all of it, this is an illustration on why I call TomZ a liar. He makes statements that The knows nothing about and has no business commenting on in the first place. And yes, he is wrong.
My relatives alone on FB number over 150. Thanks to a FB page on my high school, many of my high school friends have reconnected with me. That, and my childhood friends numbers almost 100,
And no, I was not boasting. I was just telling Martin his ex was probably still there, but it will take some looking. Honestly, I don't remember her name, and I have not looked for her.
I have been careful in counting TomZ's lies. I have not counted this one because he put "I'll betcha" in there. That shows he is uncertain, but is so sure of his statement, that he would bet on it.
The reason for that "lie" thread was to show him what a lie is. I have told him repeatedly to quit. I even posted the dictionary meaning of it. He said many of his statements are opinions. I posted what the difference is between a lie and an opinion. From his last post, he still has no clue.
Just to think of two individuals on this island, I mean mature men in their 50's, one is desperately anxious to achieve 500 likes whilst the other "likes" every single one of his own posts.
And some of the ladies, anyone, I mean anyone, can send them a friend request and they'll accept it.
So for someone to boast that they have 400 or whatever farcebook friends ... Yeah right, if this forum is anything to go by RB won't have any friends, just cyber friend requests that happened to be accepted.
It's not like I was the one who first brought up what happened five years ago. Martin said I lied about it. Martin told me to "take the high road", but he had no problem doing that. He also had no trouble making snide remarks about my FB followers.
Martin's big problem in this case: it is all true.
That they do. I happen to be a fan of those celebrities and TV shows and we have fun talking to them. They number about 20, at the most. Did you see Arnold Ziffel? He is a pig from Green Acres. He is funny. We talk about bacon and stuff.
You thought I was bragging about over 400 Facebook friends, I have 683. That is dwarfed the FB page with 962 likes https://goo.gl/OxPp0z and my Twitter account with 43,700 followers. https://goo.gl/B6raZu They both support my web business.
"Martin could not take rejection like a man, so he started the website. She claimed she never got any money from him, and Martin did not say otherwise. So, it probably was not was that. The focus of the website was what a liar she was. When I saw the website, I posted on the forum for five consecutive days for Martin to take the website down. On the fifth day, he did."
Sounds to me like you should keep your nose out of other people's business. Maybe she did defraud him financially and she deserved to be exposed. Did you ever think of that? How many other victims are there out there now because you pressured him into taking the website down?
You're a real nosey parker. Quit meddling in other people's affairs!
And Martin, you're right to put him on ignore. I think other people in this forum would be wise to do that too.
"Sounds to me like you should keep your nose out of other people's business."
Martin made it public. He started a website, slandering a woman. There are civil laws against what Martin did. However, enforcement would take time and money. Martin took the website down without protest. You now protest for him five years later?
"Maybe she did defraud him financially and she deserved to be exposed. How many other victims are there out there now because you pressured him into taking the website down?"
Neither Martin nor the girl complained and said anything financially related. Why should I or you? Yeah. Why should you? This was a lunatic out to destroy a woman's character.
If Martin was scammed financially, he would say so. I was just looking at the archives. Martin actually made two websites. The one I saw itemized the woman's "debt". I never asked him to take out those.
But I said dollars. It was in euros, so that's worse. However, the husband of Martin's "fiancee" said it was E25,000, not the over E40,000 Martin claimed. He took no responsibility, since it was done by his wife before they were married. But, Martin went after them both in the website.
Martin, I am sure you were justified in putting the website up. However, after the relentless badgering of the fool you succumb to his pressure and took it down. I'm not saying you were right or wrong but that's what happened.
I know of one case where a guy got taken for almost a million dollars from a woman he was in love with in Astrakhan. (scammers.ru/scammers/145244.htm)
Another case where a guy did put up a scam report about a young lady from Dnepropetrovsk. He was pressured by a do gooder out to save the day to take the scam report down. He did she went on to scam someone else out of $5000.
The moral of the story is that these nosey parkers ought to mind their own damn business and quit meddling in other people's business.
You have made a classic mistake of listening to just one side of a story and believing it.
As I previously mentioned that ex and I were still on speaking terms and such was the outrageousness of RB's bullshit on this forum I, as I've previously mentioned, contacted her to question "WTF?".
We had a reasonably amicable exchange during which she politely asked me if I would remove the website and I agreed to do so.
So this forum's Filipino equivalent of Clark Kent can claim to be a superhero or whatever he likes but he had diddly squat to do with me removing that website and that's the truth of it.
You're right, he is a nosey parker, but show some compassion, he lost his job a number of years ago, it seems that he is unemployable, and all he has to do all day is sit online on such chat forums as this picking fights with people.
