Intimidation? Maybe, there were some 'regulars' almost immediately....people who knew JM certainly, but also unknown people who had something to say, and said it often. What if one of them jumped my shit for what I said? But.....there were others too. Haters, usually only showing up once or twice (see: [TROLL] for exception), and tons of well wishers, who just wanted to see John & Sam escape to safety. Names came and went, and the comments were never ending....So?
Uncertainty? Well yeah, it was always a crap shoot when you turned on the computer...... what was going to happen today? Would they get caught? How crazy would the comments be ? Did I really want to get involved? Would there even be a whoismcafee today? Eeek !
Nervousness? What if I said something stupid, and then couldn't take it back and I felt like an idiot and John never answered me and.............ok WEB, what if?
After laughing at myself for a while I decided to go for it.
Early on I got used to researching just about everything I could. If JM said it, I wanted to find some back up. Had to...... because what the hell was wrong with the media? Why did they keep puking up the same story? Couldn't one of them have lifted up a rock, or looked behind the curtain....just a peek? It was so apparent to me that something more was going on the day JM's AC compound was raided, and despite being on the run, he told us about it first. Lots of skeptics.....'he was lying'.....'no newspaper report'....'GSU denies it'.......but then someone on the blog posted that they had heard the sirens and vehicles. And with some digging, I found one of the papers was reporting the truth, that the property had in fact been raided, and that while it wasn't the GSU, it was another government agency, the BDF ~ a branch of the Belize Special Assignment Group(BSAG), which is a branch of the Belize Police. whew. Ummmm, okay. What a crock of shit. Why no one in the media looked at that and thought " that's odd, wonder if there's something to this?" is beyond me. But digging for the truth doesn't generate revenue like blind sensationalism does. So we did what the media was supposed to, we dug to find the truth. And the truth is, along the way, several of us got very wrapped up in this story, and for a while, so did people from all over the world.
So now, when I look at the data from this blog (that I'm still amazed at), I see people all over the world are coming here, to see what might be exposed, or revealed. Is there breaking news? A new post....what's the music? Do we know something about John McAfee that you don't? Is there another crazy comment exchange with the TROLL? I am WEB, but am I really JM? (hmmm....it would have explained his absence at wim, if he hadn't already.....lol.)
What ever it is that brings you here, Welcome. Join in whenever you have something to add, nobody bites. :) The translator on the top is there to encourage everyone's participation, no matter where you're from. We can still talk to each other, and quite frankly, I want to hear what you have to say. Is corruption rampant in the country you live in? Do your leaders blatantly steal from your country...like Belize taking control of the media and reaping its spoils? How important is education to your leaders? Is it affordable? Do girls get the same education as boys? And what about John McAfee? Do you have any questions about the whole JM saga?.....we have a few experts. ;-) (haters please go to the Troll's blog) ......Or would you just like to say hi and represent your country? It's all good.
In case you're wondering, these are the countries popping in to visit, < to > : Japan, Pakistan, Taiwan, Indonesia, Bolivia, Germany, Australia, Switzerland, Belize, UK, France, Mexico, Canada, and the USA. WoW. That is so cool. Although, I did learn from SL tonight that some may not necessarily be from the countries they claim. Sheesh.....I really am flying by the seat of my pants, learning as I go. But it's a good ride, one that started almost 4 months ago in beautiful scary Belize, and has continued on as this blog that we're counting on to make a difference, with all of you watching. Hello.
What I'm trying to say is, People all over the World, Join in...... ❤ ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
