]I figured the photo of "himself and monty" that when enlarged the reflection in the sunglasses shows it is a phone selfie pretty much was conclusive proof, oh and monty is a free-range seeing-eye dog. While the free-range seeing-eye dog is a more humane way to go, they are nowhere near as safe. Monty stops at the curb but where is the damn dog anyway? That is why the harnessed seeing-eye dog is most common I suspect.

You're missing my point/question. Let me try to restate it.

Do blind people use vpns?
Would a blind person normally think 'oh I should use a vpn'?

Next question:
If a member based in the US always uses a vpn, then comes to Cambodia, would he continue to use a vpn because that's what he always does, or would he not use a vpn because it's not necessary anymore?
There's someone in my head, but it's not me.

People normally use vpns to hide their location.

Would blind people want to hide their location? Very unlikely.

If a person uses a vpn in the US to hide his location, would he want to hide his location when in Cambodia? It depends on the situation, and why the person is hiding their location.

I know of a person in Cambodia using a vpn because he likes to watch live sports, and bet on them. The sports he watches are blocked from being seen in Cambodia, and this is how he gets around it.

What about journalists and whistle blowers who want to send information from an unknown location? What about people involved in criminal activity on the internet?

For the people who really want to hide their location and identity, there are more sophisticated ways of doing it.

Vpns cost money. Most people are not going to spend money unless there is a good reason to hide their location.

Would a deaf person use a VPN? How about amputees? Midgets?

Would a deaf dwarf use a VPN to hide their location?

People are asking if this is a real person or a troll.

I think everybody should be polite and respectful, and treat him as a real person unless there is a genuine reason to believe it is a troll. People guess what they think, then treat the guesses as facts. In many cases they are wrong.

I think he is a real person.

I think he finds some of the things said on this forum offensive, which discourages him from getting really involved in the discussion.

People ask for photos. Are blind people concerned about photos? Do blind people take photos? I know, some people are legally blind, but can see a little, so may be interested in photos.

People say prove you are real. Does the photo he sent prove anything? Is there any proof it was taken in Cambodia? Is there any proof that it is him?

If it was a troll, it would be very unlikely the troll is blind. So all of the questions about being blind become irrelevant.
