ARE ALL BLOGS CREATED EQUAL? THE FINAL CHAPTER


By Meri, Aruban Boycott Contributor


There is a poster on the Internet who goes by the handle MIP6. He has posted on several different sites, blogs and message boards. MIP6's true name is Mark Purcell and he is the Director of Operations for The Aruba Marriott Hotel. His wife Marlene Purcell is a member of the Aruban Tourist Board and they are both friends and partners of Julia Renfro.



Here is some background for you:




MARRIOTT VACATION CLUB OF ARUBA. COOPERATIVE ASSOCIATION. ANNUAL MEETING. NOVEMBER 3, 2004 ... Director of Finance; Balan Paravantavida, General Manager, Aruba Ocean Club; Mark Purcell, Director of Facilities; Bruce ...




Here is some information on Julia Renfro (Mark/MIP6's friend):



Julia Renfro has a variety of interests in Aruba besides being the editor-in-chief of Aruba Today News Magazine and the Photo Journalists for it's sister newpaper Bon Dia.


-It seems she is the contact for Windsurfing competition on Aruba
-She is connected to Aruba Travel Guide
-World-wide Travel Guide
-Island Temptations
-Aruba Rentals
-Sailing
-And the ARS Group



The ARS Group and World-Wide Travel Guide may be related to each other as they both cover the same types of activities but it seems that the business grew from Aruba to World-Wide. These groups handle many types of businesses including yacht rentals, The Screamer, real estate, Villa rentals, apartments, office space, virtual offices and corporates identities, Business services to include...


-Administration Services
-Architectural Services
-Business Brokerage Services
-Car Rental Services
-Charters
-Cellular Phone Rental
-Commercial or Residential Real Estate Services
-Concierge & Reservations Services
-Conference Room
-Fax and Copy Services
-Financial Services
-Fiscal Services
-Internet Services
-Insurance Services


Julia has one main competitor on Aruba. That is Diario-Aruba owned by Jossy Mansur. The Mansur family has a colorful background that has been made very public with the help of Ms. Renfro and her media contacts. Ms. Renfro's background on the other hand has been kept secret.


Mark has stated in a post, "If you want to get to Julia you have to go through me." Julia Renfro is NO friend to our boycott movement because she has too much to lose if we succeed. Mark Purcell is NO friend of our boycott movement or of Beth Twitty's and he has taken every opportunity to bash her on the Internet.




This is an example of some of his posts:



**read them carefully for comments regarding Beth who he refers to as BHT




(aka Mark Purcell) Quote:


Lets see putting BHT on a teleconference for a formal interview into the investigation of her missing daughter OK that works. I think not. I for one would like to see BHT return to Aruba and have ALE pick her up and have her brought in for a little 24 hour discussion about all of her allegations of false/tampered statements, corruption/cover up in ALE & the government, a little of, so Beth now tell use again exactly how you came into possession of statements given by a suspect in this investigation. Since we have never had the pleasure of any media talking head asking her the tough questions and follow up when she dose not answer a question I think this should take place during a little one on one with the investigators in ALE.

I posted the same thing on that site a while back about Dave not sharing in the funds raised after someone else posted that Dave had set up a trust for his use and I wondered why the home page had that information on it as is was misleading, all the BHT followers blew it off as no big deal. I felt it was/is a big deal as it leads one to believe that all the Twitty / Holloway efforts would benefit from your generous donation to the Amsouth trust. More spinning and deception.

Could it be the same Ringo at nataleeholloway.net? He either has a child or knew a friend's child who went on the senior trip with Natalee, very pro Beth and will ban anyone who posts anything but "Role Model," Mother of the Year, etc., material about Bethie.


I have been posting over at the Kool-Aid campsite for about month now; yesterday I finally got them to call me a “troll”. Anything that does not follow the company line I have been posting. I am overdue to be banned.


I had this Ringo character spinning after I went to the so-called Lions Den; I had been to this bar before and posted up what I found, nothing!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I figure with my next post I should get the boot, haven’t decided which one to use yet the Beth lies or denouncing the Sainthood of Natalee. I have way too much fun watching them all freak out.

I currently live in Aruba. And most of us here have wondered the something, when are they going to investigate close to home in MB. I am not sure after all Aruba has invested in the JM inspired wild goose chases if we can afford to spend any more time and $$$$ on sending an investigator to MB.


I think it would be a waste of time anyway, the MB clan has already had over 90 days to do there evidence cleansing and 90 days to get all of there stories straight. Wait, where is Beth’s Kool-Aid gangs outrage in the ineptness of LE for allowing this long of a time for the MB team to dispose of their incriminating evidence.

That would be your opinion and now here is mine as to why Beth thought the foremost important thing to do when she arrived in Aruba was to establish Natalees character as one of a virginal, non-drinking, perfect teen. Because that’s what sells!!!! Your average run of the mill teenager who might have drank in the past or tried pot or even, God forbid, engage in sexual activity would get little to no press coverage. Not that it should matter as to someone’s character or not, but apparently Beth felt that it was so she spun the tale that would later prove to be not so.


If Natalee is of the character described by her mother what on earth would she be going on this trip for, since all in MB where well aware of what the group would be doing during there senior trip due to the past years of other senior class’s from MB visiting Aruba, an all inclusive drink & eat as much as you can before you pass out party festival. Was her role suppose to be one of the wallflower sitting in the corner by herself, reading her Bible while the rest of her classmates partied like rock stars?


The goings on during there senior trip is one of the driving forces as to why almost all information flow from the others on the trip is nonexistent. They don’t what the world to know what took place while they where away from the watchful eyes of MB. Well now the truth is being told. Read the complete VF article. The article contains a lot of answers to questions that many have been asking me via PM for a long time.


Those on this forum may not like what is put out there in this article, tough, sometimes the truth hurts when you realize that you have been deceived by those that you have been admiring.


Before anyone posts it, regardless of if Natalee drank like a fish and or got high, regardless of what sort of social activity took place during the trip with her or the others on the trip she should still be home. However, that is not what this post is about. It’s about the deception that was started by her mother to protect Natalee’s character as being her first agenda point when she arrived in Aruba.


What has come out in the Vanity Fair article is only a small piece of the information of what transpired between the family and friends that arrived to bring Natalee home & there interaction with those that opened there hearts to them who live in Aruba who just wanted to help bring Natalee home.



Does this man sound like someone who supports Beth Twitty or our boycott movement? I think not.


He is believed and has befriended certain members of some blogs and of Natalee's family and that is a tragic thing as far as I am concerned. There are several people who have been working on this information for months and we have come to the conclusion that MIP6 is not only NOT our friend, but is an enemy of this grassroots movement.


Read what I have posted and think it over. Some of you have been convinced by others that MIP6 is a man who only wants to help the family find answers...some of you will see that he is doing the exact opposite and must do that in order for his job and position on Aruba to continue. He is no better than Julia Renfro and as a matter of fact...they are kindred spirits.


This is for the enlightenment of all of you who are unaware of who this man really is and what his motives really are. Believe it or not...this needed to be exposed. It is not my job to convince every single person in the world that certain people are not our friends but it IS my job to protect the boycott and Beth Twitty (Natalee's MOTHER), when she is attacked. I am doing that with this blog.


There are others who have done great harm to the movement and to members of the family and I will let others do expose's on them. This was the one I found to be the most important and the one that needed to be exposed.


The odd thing is that many of these false friends are posting together...they are believed, revered and THANKED.


I offer them NO thanks for their deceptive behavior and practices.

Awesome Post!!

Let me get theis straight. MIP6 post on BFN wheras Robin just called this hater out and thanked him. Where is Robin's brain? or Does she have one?

Again, Debbie at BFN allows's this hater Mark Purcell to post on BFN knowing he is a basher and hater? AND! She thanks him?

I vote BFN close the doors!

Debbie the hater and back stabber allows Mark Purcell the hater and back stabber to (Dave) to post on what Debbie is calling BFN.

No! No! Hater Debbie! You must go! The blog should close in the
"Name of Natalee".

Thank you for posting THE TRUTH Meri! May God give you the ability to continue!

Excellent post Meri! Thank you for showing us what BFN is made up of!

Mark is not a supporter in way you look at his post. He bashes Beth at every corner. Why is he allowed to post on a Natalee Holloway support forum?

Meri, your promise to seek the truth is shinning.

Expose them all!

Boycott Aruba!

Deb357 said...

Thank you Meri for bringing this to everyone's attention. This site is a disgrace and should be shut down.

Debbie should be ashamed of herself to allow people like this there when the blog is Pro-Natalee and family. Unbelievable!

MIP6 post at Refugee's as well under the name of DocHoliday or something like that.

Gagirl is a moderator at Blogs for Natalee and also post over at Refugee's.

Rammstien is another who is at BFN and post over at Refugee's. Although he's mostly at BFN to give advice on the Dutch Law. Or toss out nasty comments when a nerve is struck when someone mentions how corrupt it is in Aruba/Netherlands.

There are a few others as well but I can't think of them off hand. Will post them later if I remember.

Meri, thank you for having the courage and the integrity to do the right thing.

There is absolutely no excuse for allowing abusive conduct directed towards Natalee and her mother.

It is absolutely inexcusable.
This has gone on far too long.
Those who allow this to continue, are participants in the cruelty for refusing to stand up against it.

Thank you Meri. Thank you for giving names to this shameful conduct.

Natalee and Beth deserve help in their time of need, not lies, deception and hatred directed at them so that Aruba can go on 'business as usual' - as though a beautiful child named Natalee Holloway - had never met such a cruel and inhumane death as was inflicted upon her in Aruba!

Thank you, Meri for taking a stand for doing the right thing.

How can we possibly give honor to Natalee when we allow abusive conduct to be directed towards her mother and Natalee herself in a charade of lies and deceit intent on undermining Natalee's right to justice.

The truth is enlightening indeed!

Thank you for calling all of us to stand in the courage and conviction of what we know is the right thing to do: Stand up for Natalee, Stand up for justice, stand with integrity!

I've only read MIP6 on the BFN blog. I don't understand what the blog administrators are supposed to do about MIP6 posting on their forum? I've never seen him post a single post that bashes Natalee or the family on BFN. So long as he follows the guidelines of the forum what are the admin people supposed to do? There are many people online who bash and trash the family, Natalee and supporters. I'm unclear why you choose to "out" this one person? Why not out every poster who bashes? I'm sure if he were banned it would be a matter of keystrokes to register a new nic. I just don't get your point?

Deb357 said...

anon, you just don't get the point because you over look the point.

Debbie, your comment doesn't add up!

What are you going to do about the bashers on the forum? You know for a fact they are on other forums. Doc Holladay posted a message to YOU on Refugees. Beth Basher!

You know for a fact that Alvin is Reality. Very GROSS dude! You know for a fact Reality is all the other names he has come up with for short times and leave. You know this! He is a Beth Basher too!

You know all of this to be fact yet you write a letters saying BS and you know it.

You got your fame Debbie! That's what you were seeking and
"Baby You Got IT"! Debbie style!

Where are all your excellent researchers you used to have?
Why did they leave?
Who ran them off?

Boycott Aruba!
Boycott BFD!

Justice For Natalee

Meri, you are a saint! Thank you for speaking for all of us!

This is the Final Chapter for Aruba as far as all the American tourists can tell. The GoGo travel agents won't do a damn thing for Aruba. They are suckers for the free hotel rooms and food. And they bull shits and piss on the island that they can bring business back to the island. Those are all lies. GoGo is a scam run by a Nigerian Money Lord who claims he is the exiled king from the Aruba kingdom. GoGo is in reality a GooGoo, a dick nickname in Afridutch language in central Africa. So Aruba, stand back, you are being focked by the GooGoo ATA. Don't waste your funeral money. Or else you ends up in that Dutch cremator.

MIP6 has posted very anti Beth posts at BFN but they have been taken deleted. I know that for a fact, as one in particular that I remember, is GONE. How convenient. One poster, when celebrating the fall of one of these "dens of drugs" where American tourists and Aruban young women alike, fall victim to predators by having their drinks spiked, leaving them helpless to defend themseleves against subsequent rapes, was called a "hater" and a "Christian Soldier". After being mocked and chastized by MIP6 several times, and one or two other posters came to her defense, gagirl quoted and praised MIP6 for his "bravo" deserving posts. Another male poster when complaining that someone had used his nic to PM other poster a vile message, was told by gagirl to stop the lying. This innocent male had never posted anything inappropriate, EVER, and there was no reason to believe he had suddenly begun. I, for one, did not. He was also told by gagirl that his post regarding prostitutes was deleted by her, he had never posted anything that would come close to need deleting or about "ladies of the night". The frustration of this male could easily be seen, and the "groupies" ignored him and sat by reading and said nothing, knowing full well what good character and deep sincerety this, I believe young man, has always shown. This is the treatment received by some from gagirl, on the site that should be renamed "The Good, the Bad and the Ugly"!

Anonymous said...

What is the story on Debbie? Why does she choose these particular characters as her favorites and defend them at all costs? Why would she coax Robin Holloway into writing a thank you note to this group of moral anemics? Why now is it revealed that Reality is corresponding with Robin Holloway and is being furnished family photographs of Natalee’s childhood? Something is very wrong with this picture and it is quiet frankly disgusting!

I’ve had the pleasure of receiving some of Reality’s PM’s and this character is one of the worst aberrant schizophrenics I’ve encountered on these various message boards.

What’s up Debbie? Has this become your playground? Is there no longer room on your blog for Natalee and her serious supporters? Has your web site turned into some kind of really bad joke? Come on, tell us what the true "reality" is!

yeah... my daughters missing and gee... just before she
went missing she told me she had met and fallen in love
with this guy but... I don't really want to find my daughter
so I'll just keep that information to myself.

doesn't everyone think if Beth had any shred of any type of
evidence of what happened to her daughter she'd be the first
to present it to the police? afterall it's about getting
Natalee back, not protecting her innocence.


It was about protecting her character in the beginning,
remember one of the first interviews Beth did she stated,
“ first thing I needed to do was establish Natalee’s character”,
this is paraphrased.



Yeah, I remember that. In my opinion, she meant that she
wanted the police to realize that this WAS NOT NORMAL BEHAVIOR for Natalee.
That she wouldn't have run off. That she was prompt and timely.
That she was mindful of her obligations.


That would be your opinion and now here is mine as to why
Beth thought the foremost important thing to do when she
arrived in Aruba was to establish Natalees character as one
of a virginal, non-drinking, perfect teen.
Because that’s what sells!!!!
Your average run of the mill teenager who might have drank
in the past or tried pot or even, God forbid, engage in sexual
activity would get little to no press coverage.
Not that it should matter as to someone’s character or not, but

I am sure Debbie will start cleaning up post fast so that Natalee's family members or others don't read any of the ilk that was posted over there against Natalee and Beth.

Debbie should of though of her members actions before she allowed this to continue for far to long. You reap what you sow.

I assume that there are several here posting under "anonymous". this does become confusing, can you use "anonymous 1" "anonymous2" etc. or make up some new nic so that we here can address your individual posts. Just a suggesstion. Using a nic, after all, is "anonymous", if it is a new one that you haven't used before. I suggest this because some named "anonymous" make very diverse comments to those of others posting under same un-name!

However, if our posts are to be of any help to Meri, which realisticaly and inadvertantly they could, lets at least, make them distinguishable from others.

Deb, she already has. Have a peek. Reality has been transformed.

Michelle said...

Absolutely not! I will engage in a debate with ANYONE who doesn't agree with me, as long as it is worthy of debate.

I did not write those articles you mentioned. I posted them on my blog because Meri wanted to expose the bad apples.

Meri uses my blog as her forum to speak her feelings and the truth. Please don't give me credit for her talent and good doings. Besides, she's gotten way more positive comments than negative. That says something to me.

So, do you have anything to debate about? Do you have a specific point?

All anyone can say is "oooh, Michelle you are soooo mean" or "You run a hate site", and my favorite, "You are evil and seriously sick".

So if you have POINTS to make and can spell and know what you are talking about, then by all means...I'm here. Bring it on.

PS--I won't post anything negative about Meri or Deetch, so don't bother typing...it won't get posted. They are my "homies" (A little 'Joran the pimp talk')

PPS--If you want to debate then you will have all weekend to prepare. I have a life and will not be at my computer this weekend.

Reality CAN view ALL pm's in ANYONE's pm box. Reality CAN send other people messages from another's pm. Reality CAN sign in as any member on that forum. This has been proved! He sent me a message on Debbie's name. He told me he was the master of BFN and he can and does do anything he wishes there. That Debbie would never ban him. He is "the man" there.

Reality also said that Debbie gets paid at BFN to be admin. He says Debbie has some major issues and it's sad how dumb she is. He walks circles around her.

Mark Purcell & Reality are buddies. Between those 2 Debbie, gagirl Brandie and Ramm, Ian should close the door's in respect for Natalee and her family. We all should send Ian the request along with proof of what goes on at BFN.

MIP6 is a nasty, disrespectable disgusting basher, liar, disreputable American who allows Joran & company to stay at the Marriott Hotel and do no telling what to girls while they film the abuse by running a train on young toursit girls.

Do you get in on the action Mark? What are YOU hiding for Aruba?

You Mark Purcell are being watched!

That Debbie can't never ban him. He told me he has her under his control.

Reality says Debbie has some major issues and it's sad how dumb she is he feels sorry for her.She lives in her own little world.

Andie said...

First of all, I just want to say that I have read the blog and all the comments. I am sitting here in a daze...quite honestly.

Second of all, I am a member of BFN, and I have been now going on a year. I feel I know Debbie, Reality, Gagirl, and Ramm extremely well, as they have stood the test of time. Of course, there are others there that I feel I know very well, too. However, I am not going to mentions their names on this post, as no one else has...there is no reason to start anything up about them, too. I just want to say that since I have been there so long, the main crew is like a family to me. They have honestly been there for me through thick and thin.

Third of all,I have had my disagreements with some of them, and I tend to sound off at times myself...regreting it later.
I believe BFN has learned and grown through time, as any healthy entity should do.
Some of us have had disagreements, but the admins there, always keep us in line. I like the respect we are all shown there, as it is the essence of BFN to me. I feel safe, as I share myself, my opinions, and my problems.
I am not offered that respect, because I am an American. I am offered that respect, because I am a human being, who has grown to care deeply about what happened to Natalee Holloway, her family, and about the family at BFN.

Fourth of all, fanatics scare me, and I can honestly say there are no fanatics at BFN. It is a very calm and respectful crowd, who are truly devoted to Natalee and her family. Yet, these devotees live in all parts of the world, and I have grown to admire many Dutch and others, who are not my geographical neighbors. However, they are my cyber neighbors, and I care deeply for them. One of them is REALITY. I know him well, and I can honestly say he has never done any of the above mentioned things to me. For instance: the only things he has ever said to me about Debbie is how much he respects her, and that she is his friend. Sometimes he tells me he may get a post deleted, due to something he had said when Debbie comes on. All in all, throughout the months past, I have seen him gain respect and admiration for our family at BFN...just as the rest of us have. We have grown together; frankly, I have been up close and personal...all I have seen is respect and family.

Last of all, I had said many months ago in a post that a deep chasm of polarity had developed on the Net surrounding Natalee Holloway's disappearance...now I am seeing just how deep that chasm is.
It is sad to me, as I see Natalee as someone, who loved the world's peoples...someone who loved friends...most likely loved her friends for better or for worse.
I know she wants her family to know what happened to her, but I know, too, she does not want such negative energy developing those, who care about her in "her name."
I pray that all of us, who are involved in the blogs and forums on this Net can stand back and take a breather...and pray in "Natalee's name."

Sincerely, Andie (BFN)
(I hope this gets posted...it is important to me.)

Michelle said...

Andie-

Thank you for your thoughts. I think it's too bad this is happening. And I agree it's negative energy spent. I already told Meri after the "final chapter" when everything is out in the open I would be moving on and I would not post about it anymore.

I am not a "fanatic", as I am sure there many out there. I don't feel like a "fanatic". The word I would use is passion. I have a passion for this cause. I don't base my whole life around this. I created this blog as an outlet for me initially...and then it turned into an outlet for others who feel just like me.

I'm not saying I won't allow anyone who doesn't agree with me post here, because obviously I do. I am just one person who wants justice for Natalee.

I believe the only way she will get her justice is to boycott the island. Hit 'em where it hurts...the pocketbook. I'm not out to ruin anyone's life. I just want Natalee to be able to rest in peace and be returned home.

Thanks for being open and honest Andie.

Anonymous said...

Michelle,

You just replied to Andie, "I'm not out to ruin anyone's life."

How can you even say that, much less believe it? You have used your blog, and allowed Meri to use it, in a way to specifically destroy BFN and Debbie.

Why? There are many of us in the BFN family, like Andie, whose honest hope and prayer is in support of Natalee. But the hate you have spread in the last several days had little purpose but to destroy BFN and garner hate toward Debbie.

I'll be shocked if you post this comment. Surprise me. But when all is said and done I cannot in my heart of hearts believe it is a good thing to laugh about Dutch teen suicides, just because they are Dutch; or to post comment after comment that you instigated in hate against Debbie; or to create an impenetrable wall down the middle of those who only tried to care about Natalee with you, with the ones you've incited to leave and with Beth or Dave.

I had thought better of you. The united front of "we the people" has been successful brought down. Congratulations, you accomplished what the lies, corruption and disinformation from Aruba was not able to do. I guess that "passion" you mentioned to Andie is a lot more powerful when it is inspired by hate.

How many have been silenced by Reality and his evil? Where is Faith, Blonde, Loveslilac, Airplane, just to name a few. So many early people, great posters, wonderful researchers who really cared. They were banned!!! Banned by Debbie for daring to fight back when they were excruciatingly attacked by a madman, a vulgar man, a man, to quote Granny Toad, "with nothing to say... ever....to help in the case of Natalee Holloway. The people left at BFN, the pathetic few who call themselves "a family" (so did the followers of Charles Manson, folks, so be careful, with whom you bond) have not done so out of choice or common sense. It was a case of "beat 'em or join 'em" and they have long ago stopped trying to beat 'em. You know who you all are. Look into yourselves, you KNOW who you are, who have made a 360 degree turn. You have turned on yourselves. You have given up your very own principles and have allowed yourselves to become alligned with what you initially deplored. Where does that leave you now? How can you stand for Natalee and her family when you no longer know who or what YOU are or stand for yourselves? Meri stuck her neck out, to point out what was happening on you blog, to you, and instead of taking the time to read, reflect and do a little soul searching, you have blindly taken up the mantra of the evil Aruban, who dares to say, "Stop the Hate". His reason for this selfserving mantra is all too obvious, the Aruban economy is hurting and hurting his hotel. We will not stop that hate, we do hate what happened to Natalee,(is he going to convince you to stop hating that?) to her family, the shoddy way the entire case was handled (has he gotten to the point of convincing you that it was not a cover-up?) And how unfortunate it took a boycott of the island, a hit in the pocketbook, for the Arubans to begin to care about what happened to Natalee, that is truly hateful, and we will NOT FORGET!!! That, folks, is "the hate" he wants stopped. The boycott. He's losing money! Aruba is losing money! That is what he has you fighting for, DON'T YOU GET IT?

Andie, I feel you are a supporter of Natalee and her family. However, you are blinded by many things, including Reality. He has shown disrespect and hate toward this family and you call him friend. (shocked) Are you saying you do not believe the proof of Reality's work as it was presented?

The truth shall prevail. Michelle allowed the truth to be told here and I thank her very much for that. Debbie needed to be outted as well as the others.

If you followers of Debbie wish to continue, remember Jim Jones?

You should be ashamed of yourself for taking up for BFN. THE TRUTH is ALL WE WANT! Debbie has allowed Reality, Mark and Ramm to ruin what used to be a good, respectable forum.

Read and think about it. I'm not attacking you. I'm attacking your thoughts. I do believe you will see the light one day soon.

Meri, Michelle and Deetch are very dedicated, respectable bloggers. Those three are awesome. They are top of the line and can't be beat. nuff said!





Auntiem, you've said it all, very well!

I quietly stopped posting at Blogs for Natalee close to a month ago. It was becoming increasingly clear to me that Robin and Dave were being scammed by the moderator into believing that rammstein was a supporter of the family and; many sincere members of this forum, who researched and posted on behalf of the family, were being used as a front in a masterful scheme to impress these vulnerable parents. Unsuspecting members who were loyal to the family of Natalee provided credibility to the forum in order for this pretender to acquire trust and obtain confidential information. Why else would Robin and Dave utilize the services of the enemy for translating crucial documents and statements?
