Addressing Credibility Issues

This post is a reply (off-list) to comments & constructive criticism relating to my credibility on a list relating to Alternative Currencies. In essence the commenter suggests that he’s impressed with some of my work but thinks that I shouldn’t be talking about ‘crazy conspiracies’ on the same website as any meaningful commentary on Community Currencies or my reporting of serious investigations. My replies [interspersed] explain that Alt. Currencies, investigations and conspiratorial subjects are all only a part of what I write about, but that as a straight-shooter, I’m a total package. This works both ways, causing shallow thinkers to bounce off but attracting the truthseeker, deeper thinkers and those like-minded. Enjoy! [Read more…]

Evidence of a con artist at work

ormita-response-ssIn this post I share evidence of a con artist at work, an Australian businessman currently working out of South Africa and currently going by the name of Daniel Mensi Evans. Following publication and widespread dissemination of The Ormita Report, the conman threatened me then attempted to manipulate me (both unsuccessfully) then distributed his own ad hominem attack by way of a claim of homosexual relationship with me.

It’s a ruse that he has used very effectively many times before, often leveraging past bed-mates for commercial and personal means. He is very effective at ‘working’ the homosexual community wherever he goes.

Enjoy the read. It gets exciting! [Read more…]

Open Letter to Daniel Evans (Ormita)

Dear Daniel

Today I published The Ormita Report, a document that is arguably a definitive statement on your true business conduct and the true nature and reach of the Ormita business – certainly as best as I can establish to date.

Before I discuss some of the issues raised in The Ormita Report, I wish to share some positives, for I appreciate your energies and I respect your take on certain things. [Read more…]

.nz second level – Final submission

DNCThe second level .nz registration process is just about done now with comments closing 5.00pm tomorrow evening. My final comments submitted to the DNC today follow. In essence I can see strategic value in the proposal for New Zealand; I’m concerned at some of the processes that the team went through to get the proposal out there; and their proposed Conflict resolution process is fundamentally flawed, even going against their own core policy principles – in intent.

Surrounded by idiots

The 'Flying' Coconut - not of the Samoan Rugby Union winger kind! Designed and implemented by yours truly. Who would think of doing a mural on the roof of a guest house?

The ‘Flying’ Coconut – not of the Samoan Rugby Union winger kind! Designed and implemented by yours truly. Who would think of doing a mural on the roof of a guest house?

As the New Year dawns, like millions of others around the globe, and for the first time in my life, I’ve made a pledge . . . I’m not going to work with, live with, put up with or deal with any more idiots, ever! [and do I hear you thinking that I might then be ready to leave Samoa?] [Read more…]
