Would You Buy A Used Domain From Drew Noyes?

20 April 2012 Leave a comment

Domain speculation is a fine thing; invest 5 or 10 dollars a year in hopes that the value of your domain will skyrocket and you can cash out with a nice profit. Of course there are many things that can poison a domain, especially if it was formerly owned by unsavory persons engaged in problematic practices. There are a lot of factors involved in determining the value of a domain. This post is one of them; the internet never forgets.

Fear not, each of these links below takes you not to a server owned by Drew Noyes but to a respected third-party domain information service called DomainTools. This space wouldn’t send you to a server that wasn’t the most reassuring… most Drummonded… never mind.

This first group of Drew Noyes domains at least pretends to have something to do with his day-to-day life in Pattaya. Or at least the life he pretends to have in Pattaya.

lawyerssolicitorsattorneysthailand.com

But here Drew Noyes begins to lose a bit of contact with reality. If the allegations are true and should a certain type of shenanigans be tried on with the wrong Russian… Of course the fact that half of them are spelled wrong in Cyrillic could make an aggressor laugh too hard to do any harm. (Note to Drew Noyes: wikipedia.org will help you with your homework.)

Then — in for a penny, in for a pound — why not go ahead and name-squat the domain for the political party that can only get itself elected in Chonburi because (and we will stop there and just invite you to click this link for the Phalang Chon Party on Wikipedia then look at the names and do your homework. It will help to know this, too).

(Note to Drew Noyes: There are people who buy and sell small-time operators a hundred times a day… They don’t ask; they take. They don’t warn; they act.)

And finally, because Thailand is a place where you reinvent yourself (and doesn’t a bolus of dung reinvent itself as soil in a manner of speaking?)

If you, dear reader, find more domains that belong to the most-Drummonded American to ever talk himself up in Thailand, please drop them into the comments section.

Edit: 21 April 2012 – It seems Andrew Drummond was “sucked” into the Drew Noyes domain zeitgeist at about the same time.

Drew Noyes vs. Kenneth Ng

7 April 2012 2 comments

In the interest of fairness one must always get down to the facts and this is especially true when attempting any sort of side by side comparison. This stricture must apply — if one proceeds with scrupulous intent — even when faced with an odious determination; which kind of scum at the bottom of the barrel is less noisome? Which breed of dog’s feces would you most (or least) like to wipe from your shoe?

Thus it is left to you dear reader to draw your own conclusions, but wouldn’t Thailand be better off without either?

Club Electric Blue Recruiting Whores on Tagged.com

18 December 2010 9 comments

This makes a new low mark for humanity. Well, no, for Thai go-go bar owners who are, as a rule, sub-human to start with, possessing a Neanderthal intelligence and the moral fiber of a sea slug.

A little background is in order for the unwashed… Tagged.com is a second-tier social networking site, but with a redeeming feature, namely their Pets game. To succeed, as a rule, you have to cheat, so this space set up a few fake profiles using random hot-sexy-nasty images of Asian babes, and fake profile data including designating Thailand as the profile country.

Fast forward to today when multiple accounts began getting “Friend requests” from a profile belonging to a user called “Electrice B”. (Would love to give you a link, but after being reported, no doubt within mere minutes by numerous users, the account was marked as Cancelled.)

But the precaution was taken to screenshot that profile…

Club Electric Blue, a shitty Patpong go-go bar, trolls Tagged.com looking for new whores.

Yahoo accounts are, of course, the hallmark of a First Class Operation. Don’t you just love the feeling of trust and legitimacy that inspires?

Meanwhile, bop on over to the Club Electric Blue website, specifically their contact page (http://www.clubelectricblue.com/contact.htm) — oh boy! More Yahoo accounts! Can the ever-expanding respect for such a high-class operation possibly be contained?

Take a moment, won’t you, to use all of those email links and let them know what royal pieces of shit the owners of that bar and their webmaster really are? Maybe pick up the phone, give them a ring, and let them know just how you feel?

And if you happen to be in Patpong, please go no closer to Club Electric Blue than it take to throw a dead cat through their window.

This space can only hope that their scattershot approach also happened to piss off the daughters of a few well-placed Thais and we can garner the lulz of a major shit-storm in the coming weeks.

On Flare-Ups, Failures and Facts

26 April 2010 6 comments

This previous week marked the near-total implosion of Big Baby Kenny, both the dubious website and the author, Professor Kenneth Ng of California State University at Northridge.

The absence of the website is little loss and the general consensus is that the internet has gotten marginally smarter by its erasure. Although there are questionable retrospective-cum-appreciations already in circulation, one is left wondering why it’s worth anyone’s time to remark at length upon it.

BBK was a site with an abominable presentation, poor writing and a factual basis that varied from poor to so jaw-droppingly inaccurate it recalled the famous remark of Wolfgang Pauli: “it’s not even wrong”.

These defects would have doomed the site over the long haul, or at least confined it to the internet version of vanity press, but Ng unwisely accelerated the process with a very high-profile battle with the owners and manager of the Big Mango Bar and their blog.

Ng’s great mistakes were three: losing control of the scope of the argument and verging into manufacturing information rather than discovering it, failing to secure his own position, and letting his ego get in the way of prudent judgement.

For these reasons and more, the situation echoes the past contretemps between Keith Summers (his John Galt act and his website now on an apparently indefinite hiatus) and Paul Owen (whose Stickman persona and website have settled into an irrelevant senescence akin to a faded late-career Bernard Trink).

While this has been remarked upon elsewhere, the conclusion that Ng’s efforts were substantially similar to Summers’s (and as substantially ineffectual) can’t be supported.

Ng continues, by posting justifications for the former content of his website, to battle to save his job and substantial salary. CSUN administration for its part seems content to put the matter to rest, and absent a second wave of media coverage focusing on Ng’s documentable misuse of state resources, he will probably succeed. For the time being, Kenneth Ng still has his position, but his tilt with the Big Mango has had a very lopsided outcome (which is a sanitised way of saying abject failure) and may result in his dismissal.

By contrast, if indications are correct, Summers’s campaign seems to have struck the target. Word is that Owen is now poison in the educational community in Thailand, although if pressed the concern is usually phrased less in terms of his website content and instead focuses on the quality of his teaching credentials — some liken them to the sort of thing you get during a walk down Khao San Road or 4 to 6 weeks after sending a dollar and two box-tops to a post office box in Battle Creek, Michigan.

None of the four main parties in these two situations are without blame…

For their part Ng and Summers thoroughly failed at the tasks of information security regarding themselves and their real-life endeavours. And they committed the sin of letting themselves drift away from a factual, clinical approach into one of misrepresentations in service of personal vengeance. Summers ultimately went to court because of his indiscretions and Ng’s crucifixion in the court of public opinion may still intensify.

In viewing both Stickman and Big Baby Kenny it is perfectly correct that broader questions have been asked about whether it is appropriate for anyone involved with education (especially of minors) to be at the same time involved with the very adult nightlife scene here, and whether their behavior is in compliance with community standards and the terms of their employment.

And as for the Big Mango and Stickman as the putatively aggrieved parties, it really is difficult to feel at all sympathetic. When setting yourself up in business you must make certain factual disclosures on the public record. And when one becomes a celebrity — particularly when it is done voluntarily as a commentator or blogger — one must accept that fame comes with a price. And that goes beyond criticism right through to being named and enduring some ugly threats.

(In the Big Mango’s defense, they did attempt to “extend the olive” branch at one point, to quote one insider there. They were rebuffed as Ng took their efforts as a show of weakness. That however only covers the disinformation being spread about them, not disclosure of the factual essence of their ownership and management structure which some weak minds conflate with “outing”.)

With these thoughts in mind, and yet undeterred, in the coming weeks and months we’re going to be telling you a lot more than you ever thought you’d know about Thailand and especially the nightlife scene and the players in it.

It is never useless to repeat the words of Paul Fussell — “What someone doesn’t want you to publish is journalism; all else is publicity.” MongerSEA will put this principle into action.
