Following appeals Google has restored stories which were previously blocked on this site pending investigations of copyright complaints from two phony lawyers Brian Goudie and Drew Walter Noyes.
|Phoney lawyer 1 - Noyes|
Drew Noyes, former publisher of the Pattaya Times, who has now withdrawn claims that he is an American lawyer, had claimed pictures used on this site were taken from his camera of him at his request and were stolen from him.
The claim was vehemently denied, more over publication of pictures taken from the Pattaya Times was in the public interest and used to illustrate the activities of the newspaper. Noyes had a fraud judgment against him in the United States.

Andrew Drummond claimed that the pictures were of a resort promoted and offered for a sale by a man who had convictions for fraud, and falsely claimed to be a lawyer. It was in the over-riding public interest to warn would be buyers of the serious possibility that such a resort, which boasted a marina, might not be built or later offered as described, and that they should therefore use due diligence.
