Internet Prophets

(Living in the Shadow of Simian)

There are many bloggers across the internet sharing their thoughts about everything from recipes to politics and beyond. Most of us have other obligations and only devote our spare hours to blogging. That can leave voids in the content that can stretch into weeks at a time.

An idea that embraced my thoughts recently was to invite other bloggers to make written contributions, detailing any topic that might interest the readership of this web site. The first entry for this experiment has been kindly made by a person familiar to many of you that frequent message boards.


Her Name: ArubaGirl

****************************************************************
Will The Real Simian Please Stand Up?


I suppose everyone has those days that just drift by, with nothing happening. You know, days that you can just relax, catch a movie, and watch a TV show. Those days are good days, aren't they?

And I suppose that everyone has those days where they're accused of being an internet prophet posting mysterious messages on forums about a case that has had many people in their grip one time or another.

No?

Oh, only me then. Okay.

When I received the message that there was a site out there saying that I was simian, I was flabbergasted. When I went to the site, I was insulted that the thread in my 'name' only got 24 posts or so. Anyway, I denied it to a couple of people and thought that was that. Nobody is really going to believe that I was capable of creating these vague sounding posts, right? And frankly, what constituted some crappy writing? Oh, me of little faith. Not only was it believed, it spread around the internet like wildfire.

I will not deny it: I was pissed. I was spitting nails mad. It truly got my goat that people thought that I knew where Natalee was and wouldn't tell. After ranting to my computer screen for a good while (because it helps sooo much) I called up my best friend and whined to her about the unfairness of it all. Her response: hysterical laughter. My response to that: Sulking silence. Didn't anybody feel my pain here? I told my mom (after explaining the whole back story) and she had the same response. I started to see a pattern here.

Then I really thought about it, and it is kind of funny. I mean, in my resume, underneath my jobs in the casino, insurance and automotive industry; I can put 'internet prophet'. How many people can say that? Not sure that it will actually further my career, but that's another matter.

I will leave you with a little tidbit for the poster who started it all: Petunia. My Chinese Horoscope sign is a monkey. How is that for evidence!

Why did they think you were Simian? Just because you live in Aruba, or was it something else?

AG,
I hope you read alot of the post on there. Not all thought you were Simian. Actually I think it was very few.
Thank you so much for responding to Easy. Alot of us have missed you at SM . JMHO

I also forgot to mention at Scared Monkeys we are only wanting Justice for Natalee just like we want Justice for all the missing.If you were missing in our country we would be trying to find Justice for you as well. Again just my honest opinion.

Who is Simian? Did he do something to Natalee?

Thank you, SM Sam, for your supportive comments. I really do appreciate it.

Arubagirl – Setting aside all the difference of opinions about Aruba and how it dealt with this case, what is the general consensus on the island as it pertains to Natalee’s disappearance?

I know a lot of theories have been put out there, but what do most people living in Aruba really think?

Yeah.

Now I'm really pissed. Not out-of-my-mind pissed.

Pissed off as in payback is a bitch, and I'm willing to spend money to achieve my goals. Anybody who wants to help, pm me.

If you don't want to, I totally understand. If I'm not posting, you know what I'm doing.

Thanks, enigma, for your post.

The one really mean post about Red was my last post, which yeah, I stand by.

I wish I knew what the other mean post are that I've written about either Tom or Mrs. Red.

It is sorta obvious that simian was hearing stuff from someone in ALE,
ag posted this at refugees in the 6 Degrees of Separation/How I Am Connected To This Case thread:

Tue Feb 21, 2006 4:16 pm
Oh wow, let me count the ways
1) I live in Aruba
2) I worked for the Excelsior Casino
3) All four cops that I know worked on the case
4) Mariaine Croes was a classmate of mine
5) My dad knows Paul
(Paul worked for the Department of Justice, my dad worked for the then Minister of Justice NOT RUDY) etc...

simian started posting june 17,
right after someone posted: where is ag? she hasn't been around much.
answer: we heard she was told to shut up

not that she quit posting, far from it.
but it seems that creating a male ID allowed her more freedom, so to speak
that's how we came up with the
arubagirl is simian theory

we were starting to look at: Mariaine is shango when the forum poofed


I was thinking about simian/shango arguing about who was the true insider,
there were personal slams,

no idea if ag/Mariaine were friends but they were classmates at one time
so I was wondering if there was jealousy about one having a high-profile job (Mariaine)
& one being a flunky who processes insurance claims (arubagirl)

both had sources inside the investigation, that's for sure

there was one post where someone said Mariaine was her friend or asked if she was
& ag answered: Not. True.
