If You Have Something Random to Say About Khmer440.com

If you have something so weird, strange or off-topic to post and think it doesn't belong in any other forum; you're probably right. Please put all your gormless, half-baked, inane, glaikit ideas in here. This might also be a place where we throw threads that appear elsewhere that don't belong ANYWHERE end up, instead of having to flush them. FORUM RULES STILL APPLY.

Neither of them had the information I posted at the time.
Okay, i'll try to explain it as clearly as I can, using a timeline, based on my timezone (which is UTC +7)

1- Mon Sep 15, 2014 11:13 am: Gavinmac starts the thread "Wanted American Ian Heller arrested for expired visa?"

2- Mon Sep 15, 2014 12:22 pm: I posted the link to the National Police website's post to that story and post the picture of the passport in spoiler tag. In there, I note that the name in the passport is different from the name of the arrested American.

3- Tue Sep 16, 2014 7:44 pm: Newbie The Big Brain posts in the ""2014 Reported Deaths of Tourists and Expats in Cambodia" a post saying "Rumor is one more in the last day or so on Koh Rong island."

4- Tue Sep 16, 2014 10:03 pm: Gavinmac responds to this saying "Wow, Koh Rong again?"

5- Wed Sep 17, 2014 9:46 pm: To which I respond "You beat me to it. Though in the absence of a link shared by newbie, Porky, Prahoc or over at CEO, I'll reserve my right to skepticism." (Note: that's why I was waiting for a "confirmation")

6- Thu Sep 18, 2014 12:19 am: Gavinmac makes the deduction that Zachary Napier is dead (Note: at the time, it was still in the Ian Heller thread because of the police's confusion with the passport)

7- Thu Sep 18, 2014 4:20 am: GMack starts the thread on CEO "American Zachary Napier Dies from Drug Overdose on Koh Rong"

8- Thu Sep 18, 2014 5:58 am: Gavinmac posts an update in what is still Ian Heller's thread that Zachary's great uncle will officiate two funerals on Sep. 20, one for his friend and one for his great nephew.

9- Thu Sep 18, 2014 6:05 am: I post my comment about the "confirmation" that is actually referring to The Big Brain's news that someone had died on Koh Rong.

10- Thu Sep 18, 2014 6:08 am: Gavinmac posts in what is still Ian Heller's thread that now that it is established that the TWO cases are unrelated (or maybe they are, since Heller was also on Koh Rong), he is splitting the topics to make it clearer.

i don't think GavinMac is a journo, he claims to be but it's BS considering he never provided any info that couldn't be found online, ultimately he's just a stalker and a creep just as much as the whole K440 brigade.

i always wondered why the aspirations never came to fruition.

perhaps the former owner will further his education in that regard, and return to the motherland to teach the youf.

Never read or heard GavinMac claim to be a journalist. As far as I know his profession is common knowledge and it is not journalist.

Good timeline.

Again, it was only brought up because Gavin came here and said he never reads new content here.

It got pointed out that I beat him with finding out that yes, it was the guy that died on Koh Rong, the rough date, that he was found dead in his guesthouse, and that it was from a drug overdose.

If you can't see why this would make Gavin upset, beating him to his own story and all, and that all he had before he read my post was that it was likely the rumored death on Koh Rong, I don't know what to tell you.

Again, that informative Facebook post was several days old, and Gavin clearly missed it, which is why he didn't post anything more than just that he thought it was the same guy, until AFTER I had found that info and posted it first.

He's clearly trying to deny it, and after both Violet and another poster called him out earlier, I can't say that I'm surprised.

Meh.....
