This applies to almost all of Dave’s posts :ROFL:

The only thing Dangerous about Dave, is the fact that he enjoys hanging out with kids who aren’t his own, tells strangers on an Internet forum that he loves said kids, and buys Christmas gifts for them (c’mon man,Cambodians don’t even celebrate Xmas!)...look, I’m not insinuating anything by what I said, but it is dangerous and a little creepy...be careful Dave.

Before anyone asks. I believe red Styrofoam cups are available at Aeon.

I've seen an *awful* *lot* of tinsel and elf-hats in this town, for the line "Cambodians don't even celebrate Christmas" to draw much water. But at all events, these kids were born in New Zealand and their mom lives in Australia, so no issue there.

Thanks, all.

Fair enough re where the kids are from. So they’re probably used to Xmas, the majority of Cambodians aren’t and don’t celebrate it, despite the amount of tinsel and xmasy crap you see around town.

best have as little as possible to do with kids outside your family group lest you fall suspect to sinister speculation.
especially avoid all physical contact with them, and make a hasty exit from any room where you may be left alone with them.
i am really not joking.
there are salaried staff patrolling riverside looking for any untoward behavior.
there is a reason for that.

Just be aware you will be on a list by your posts.

The above two posts should be heeded.

While I find Frank's advice sound I am somewhat disconcerted about Arget's supposed list, so I direct these questions to him.

1). How do you know about this list?
2). What ministry, NGO or agency compiles it? This allegation invites a plethora of related questions, but these will suffice for now.

I notice that in addition to not responding to my above questions, you falsely claimed elsewhere that passengers were turned away from the new airport due to an inaugural ceremony.

Ignoring for a moment the issue of fear mongering which you introduced in this thread, it would also appear that you fancy yourself privy to nonexistent inside information. There seems little reason to place value on your credibility.
