1- b018 Review


Even though I wrote this more than a year ago, it still gets regular visitors every single day. Makes me proud that I can contribute to conveying what this club is really like to the rest of the world. It’s been featured on several other websites, and on the Reddit subreddit /r/TodayILearned

3- Joe Maalouf’s Failed Attempt to Intimidate

After the failure to shut me up, I did what I promised I would, reveal everything, and I did. The support I got made me certain I wasn’t doing the wrong thing, and I thank you all from the very bottom of my heart!

5- SkyBar’s Blacklist

This is also an ancient post, but it seems the constant malpractice of the club has folks coming back for more every year. I’m glad to say I haven’t stepped there except once for a charity event in 2011, which is money and time well-saved!

6- Who Was Cynthia El Khoury?

I still cannot process the shock and disbelief when I heard. Sometime, when I reread the post, I’m surprised I could write something like that, something so unlike what I’m used to writing.

After breaking the news and letting you folks know how to bypass this ban on free VoIP and IM app Viber, lots of folks came in the defense of the ministry, or the providers.

9- 15 Reasons Maryam Nour Needs to be in an Asylum

This got shared a a lot and it brought out the pseudo-spiritual, pseudo-science proponents in Lebanon, claiming that we are just ignorant and that if we read more, we’d understand some hidden secrets. Of course, this is all part of the delusions of grandeur Nour and her followers have, and as people of science, we cannot acknowledge “secrets” that are not reproducible, verifiable, or simply understandable. It’s a funny post a lot of people enjoyed, and that’s what matters for me!
