My post was originally intended SIMPLY to say that PERHAPS it made sense the villagers were freaked out because they thought the travelers could be there to steal children.

It was a pretty simply point, and there is no need for me to be required to step and style to your demands to provide "proof" of your tangential point.

It was a simple point, and a good point, and I agreed with it!

I simply pointed out that this was similar to the phishtaco myth, and you insisted that it was no "myth" and started posting links from MSI and claiming this proved your point. That, I do not agree with.

Edit: Shut up Locker. I usually like you and like what you say. But I think what you did on the other thread is DESPICABLE. Happie is WAY out of your league now.

Using words like maybe, perhaps, ostensibly, apparently, possibly, etc, when appearing to state a fact instead of a viewpoint is pretty funny !

GraniteClimber - I did ask for clarification as to why you thought this was a myth -I wouldn't say that was huffy.

I guess I was surprised at your response that you "didn't buy it" when I have to admit I thought people pretty much knew that children are kidnapped, though body parts was not something I had considered before. Frankly, when I know that children are abducted for use in child pornography, when I know that women are coerced into prostitution, it didn't surprise me.

Perhaps I have seen more than some people and it colors my worldview, but I can't ignore what I have seen and what I know, if only out of honor for those who have suffered and died at the hands of others(there's that damned word "honor" being abused again...right.)

Let's not fight. This forum has seen too much fighting. And thank you for supporting me in that post. I appreciate that.

"You killed whatever magic you used to have."

"Magic" is for old folks re-living their past. All I have is this incredibly stupid thread speculating as to what happened in Peru.

Yes, the "huffy" characterization was rude and not called for. I edited my post to delete it.

No, Chalfant, your posts used to have "magic" for me, at least more than they do now. You've changed. Or I have. But I think it's you. Look at your posts of the last 30 days and compare to several years ago.

If you think this thread is so incredibly stupid, then why are you still here reading it?

I thought it was funny when you posted upstream " Anyone else want to pull an opinion out of their ass" and then started pulling opinions out of your ass.

I get the sense that there is still the strong traditional division of labor in this area.

Vitaly you'll love it there. I've spent time in the Huaraz/Cordillera Blanca and it's heaven. What goals do you have in mind?

Giving some positivity to this on it's way to 1000!!

Explain. Why is it funny to support the people who live there and had their lives interrupted by foreigners who didn't speak the language and refused to show any ID? You'd rather take the side of the "extreme adventurers" who boldly vacationed in another country, figuring it would be fine if they knew nothing about the area, the language, or the people?

There you go again justifying their mob mentality. Really, give it a rest. Their true colors came out. Once they decided they had been slighted, they threw rocks, beat up people, and stole sh#t. Just like any group of jackasses might do in any crap neighborhood in East LA or some other uneducated pile. But the Peruvians are so cute in their outfits.

They could have let them go.

And you and others introducing this class warfare crap into the mix are all the funnier. How dare those gringos own a nice truck and insult the masses with its shiny paint job. Why not go prostrate yourself down there and throw out your wrist watch when you walk by. These kids didn't deserve this treatment. The villagers knew the f*#ked up, too. They felt guilty. But go ahead and forgive them, hey, it wasn't you just someone you apparently don't like because they are gaudy.
