I think a CEO poster asked for advice here, moved to Cambodia, and went off the rails

This is a part of our Cambodia forums to chat about anything Cambodia-related. This discussion forum is at the top of our site because it's usually the busiest part of the expat community chatter with random topics on just about everything, including expat life, Khmer politics, Cambodian blogs we have or have come across, or whatever else our members want to discuss. Whether you're an expatriate, tourist, Cambodian or random traveler just passing through South East Asia, you are welcome to talk about anything or start new topics yourselves.

I think a CEO poster asked for advice here, moved to Cambodia, and went off the rails

Post by Cam Nivag » Thu May 10, 2018 6:41 am

An American poster named "splumlee" joined CEO in December.

He asked newbie questions about his pending move to Cambodia, like "How do I get a long term visa?" and "How do I get a cell phone?"

He also asked for advice on getting his TEFL certificate, and in that post he identified himself with his first and last name.

He last posted on January 29. That was on a thread about Siem Reap, and in that post he suggested that he had arrived in the country.

This week someone posted on the Siem Reap FB page that an American man with the same name was suffering from schizophrenia, talking to himself about God all the time, and has gone missing. Apparently, he has now been found and efforts are being made to return him to the USA.

Notably, an American with the same name has form in the USA for this very thing in West Virginia and Oklahoma:

Not sure if it's the same guy. But let's hope he gets the help he needs either way.

Do you honestly believe that posting all this negative stuff about him will help him?

He obviously has mental health issues, but will broadcasting it help him?

On the one hand you post shit about him, and then you garnish it it with 'hope he gets help' tail-end tactic.

Do you enjoy doing stuff like this? Does it make you feel better about yourself?

A guy with his name was arrested on August 21, 2015 for disorderly conduct, trespassing and telephone harassment. Then arrested a week later for false emergency report. The arrests were in West Virginia, he was identified as being from Oklahoma.

He has a youtube channel, of course: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCylg9E ... Dww/videos

You're the guy who has been clamoring for background checks for teachers. Do you think he belongs in a classroom in Cambodia? Also, I haven't even used his name. So anyone who googles his name will just find the newspaper articles and the arrest records and mugshot crazy ranting youtube videos and not see this thread. Do you think I have unfairly harmed him? How?

Oh come one, that was just a chronological listing of events, I wasn't implying causation.

Someone on FB says he has a major drug problem. It looks like his family is trying to get him home.

Now the person who made the FB post asking for help for the dude is bashing the dude's mom on her own FB wall.

Nice work Cam...again! You da man.

Now, maybe more people can try to help this poor guy.
I am sooooo very sorry if you can't understand or appreciate my sarcastic facetiousness.
