American STEPHEN GREATSINGER (Khmer440 Member 'BSCW') Arrested in Cambodia After US Embassy Threats

Breaking news from Cambodia can be found here. CEO often finds Khmer news and translates it into English for our readers if it is interesting to expats, locals, Cambodians living abroad and anyone who wants to stay informed of the latest local and international news stories about Cambodia and our neighbors in South East Asia. There are many sources for Khmer news articles and they can all be found here in one place. Most of the media comes out of Phnom Penh, Siem Reap or Sihanoukville, but we cover national Cambodian news from all provinces.

Good point, High Commissioner

Mish got outed because he had posted his photograph here - and you couldn't deny the crime scene photo's were him.
So, in effect, he outed himself. Everybody has the right to choose that to whatever degree they want.
But does the anonymity stop as soon as the cuffs are slapped on any member, regardless?

My personal vote - No. < usually
Anonymity should be almost sacred.
However, if the guy has declared war on your biz and threatened your family, repeatedly. I would probably both call the cops - and out the bloke.

There are definite limits - even calling the cops is sometimes on.
Bullies and thugs rely on codes of silence being inappropriately applied - and they don't deserve them.
BSCW posted his own personal data, to include multiple passports, in his thread, so he outed himself long before his current troubles.

No, doxxing people shouldn't be allowed, and it isn't, per forum rules. Outing yourself is a different matter.

Rules are for breaking, forum rules are not laws and whoever is in control decides.

Remember the recent announcement that an FBI office is going to open in Phnom Penh. It has always been here inside the Embassy. And they are reading CEO everyday. And the Cambodian internet gateway monitors are watching. Just saying. You will not remain anonymous to them for long. So he puts his threats out there in the open and now has to accept the consequences. Stupid is as stupid does.

It wasn't just the insane ramblings he posted on forums though, apparently he was emailing the staff at the embassy with direct threats. :roll:

Yes, all citizens were eligible, whether resident or not. u.s. citizens pay federal tax on all income generated abroad( with small exceptions).
We're getting way OT here, but americans abroad get proper fucked (as Snatch would put it) on taxes from foreign earnings.
Americans living abroad would file form 2555. If they meet the residency requirements, the easiest one to meet is if they work permanently or indefinitely outside of the USA, they do not pay tax on the first $105,900.

So you would need a wage exceeding that annually to start paying taxes, those making $106K plus are perhaps bothered but not sure about "proper fucked" level.

Maximum foreign earned income exclusion. Enter $105,900

I suspect he was bipolar or something. He definitely suffered from some sort of mental disability (maybe his lawyers can work that angle).
