Gringo Trolls and stalkers

So many unhappy Gringos in Mexico and I think an abnormal amount on the Costalegre. Where you find this out is on the local message boards. Especially TomZap but occasionally on the La Manzanilla board. I like to disagree with people when their info is faulty and I like to complain about the ridiculous amount of advertising that goes on on TomZap. Personal attacks I don't like but way too many people seem to feel better when they can put someone else down.   I blame most of the problem on terrible moderation on TomZap. No limits on advertising and almost no limits on personal attacks.

So this time around I was asking if there was any new information on the La Huerta police that were being investigated for the killing of 3 of my neighbors.  I guess this is serious and real because the Mayor of La Manzanilla quit and left town. The three were stopped by the police leaving town after the Rodeo in February.    Their bodies were found a few days later outside Manzanillo.

So along comes the stalker, troll, trouble maker telling me to stop asking questions about this very serious situation.  I tell him to mind his own business if he has nothing to add.   That's all it took for him to begin his  loco rant.  It turns out it's a guy using a woman's name and fake email address so he can't be contacted. Wha'cha gonna do.

Oh Oh come on over here and we can have a coffee, of course, you will buy. And by the way I am far more concerned than you are. Why don't we meet tomorrow at, 9a.m.. at Hectors, I will be waiting for you. And by the way I know what you look like. Maybe you are too coda..too cheap to buy me a coffee, but I would love to talk to you. 
You can email mail me with that little white envelope by my name. I truly would love to meet you in person, even though I know you are a cranky pants.. BUT please I will be at Hectors at 9a.m. waiting.. So enough of wasting other peoples me.. See you tomorrow. and. bring the kids and wife!!!

The moderator locked that thread which was definitely the best idea.   All I am left with is a where in the hell do these people come from ..... and we have Red Tide.   Further Internet searching has no new info since mid February. What a long strange trip it's been.

It does seem a little early for the "the heat made me cranky" gang. But the winter has been unseasonably hot. Can you imagine what this summer will be like?

Warm in more ways than one I'm afraid but hopefully mostly the heat of the tropics. Pretty warm tonight

Same problems encountered on the Puerto Escondido TomZap Forum - there are some real nut cases - but given enough rope those idiots eventually expose themselves and many go away. Forums are like public bathrooms - it is amazing what people will do when they think they won't be found out. Hang in there amigo - you are one of the good guys.

I'm not going anywhere. I just wonder where some of these people have spent the first 80% of their lives and now as retirees seem so strange.
