Re: Elon Musk Is Doubling Down on the Pedo Thing

This is just a guess, but possibly Unsworth isn't alleging--and can't show--that he suffered any financial loss from Musk's comments. His reputation was damaged, but he didn't lose a job or otherwise suffer financially. Therefore he's not suing for millions. Also he's expected to file a second suit ...

"A British diver who helped rescue youth soccer players trapped in a cave in Thailand is suing Elon Musk, alleging that the Tesla CEO falsely accused him of being a pedophile. Diver Vernon Unsworth, who lives north of London, contends that Musk made the false allegation on Twitter and then repe...

Re: 13 Thais Missing during Caving Expedition

I had seen one brief mention that this celebration was planned, but no details--thanks for the link. The celebration and the awards seem appropriate. I think it's a good sign that there was little note of it in Western media, so far at least. It means, I hope, that interest in the story has died dow...

Re: Elon Musk Is Doubling Down on the Pedo Thing

All speculation. But enough nuggets of doubt to suggest to me that Musk may merely be blowing hot air. It's hard to make any sense out of this story, because there is none to be found. Everybody wishes it would just go away--everybody except Musk, and his only possible motivation is simply spite. H...

Re: Elon Musk Is Doubling Down on the Pedo Thing

What an ugly and unnecessary mess, directly due to Musk's pique and inability to accept any criticism. I have an uneasy feeling, though, that Unsworth is going to deeply regret his ungracious words. Musk is many things, but he's not stupid. I find it hard to believe that he made up his charges again...

Re: Changes Coming To Dongtan Beach

Thats Kev-in-Thailand, a well known vlogger on YouTube. He's got hundreds of videos, many of which have useful and interesting information about Pattaya and environs. Many, of course, are about girl bars, but most have info useful to everyone. Surely that's not an Aussie accent--I always thought it ...

Re: More Jomtien Beach Restrictions

I'm dismayed to read of all these changes. I haven't been to Jomtien (or Thailand) in 4 years, but plan to return in November. On my last visit I was a little bit miffed to see how many chairs were "reserved," by people putting towels on them, or the concessionaires doing it on their behal...
