There is a thread on TOB about vaccines. In that thread, Dan has gone full-on nazi on us, comparing vaccine proponents to the jack-boots with a photo. And when confronted about it, with recommendations that he be reported to the owners of chapala.com, he basically flipped everyone the bird, calling everyone else fascists, and ending with ' "Go ahead, report me. "Frankly my dear, I don't give a damn. This is what you've signed on for. " '. He has taken his faux power to the level of Chancellor and despot.

Others have pointed out that nazi imagery is banned on every popular social media site, to no avail.

Since the owners of chapala.com clearly don't care, there is nothing that can be done to force him to stop the hate. My recommendation is everyone convene here at Bob's place, and just get off that other lunatic site for good. Yes, it's more active over there, but there is nothing to stop this site from taking over, without the insanity.

If you have been there, you have seen it. If not: https://www.chapala.com/webboard/index.php?/topic/92109-qr-codes/page/2/

Leave Dan to his fantasies. Today it was recorded that 8000 republicans a week are dying, 5Xs more than dems. Let them wipe themselves out!

I think the owners of the webboard who also own Tango, El Ojo del Lago and Coldwell Banker will care about these Nazi images, once they are made aware of them.
To report the Nazi images posted by @Mainecoons you can send a message to Chapala.com here.

Had he lived there then, Mainecoons would no doubt have relished being a Nazi concentration camp guard marching my great grandparents off to the gas chamber. What a vile POS.

You would get a far better response posting all this on FaceBook and starting a campaign against Coldwell Banker and companies. I can assure you with enough views/shares Coldwell Banker will take action.

On our board we have Drowsy who is basically comic relief.
On the other board we have Mainecoons who is a bully who is intolerant of the views of others. He is a disgusting human being.
I am in Alberta for another month but when I get back I would be interested in meeting some of you in person to discuss the Mainecoons issue. How can we tolerate someone of his ilk in our community.

Launching a campaign on FB is beyond my pay-grade. I can barely open sites to read restaurant menus.

I still **think** sending emails and PMs to the Chapala.com family could be productive if enough do it. All it takes is a few keystrokes.

It's been my experience in dealing with local realtors that all incoming emails get printed and go to an agent's desk.

Might catch someone's attention. Quien sabe.

And then there's the other solution: Ignore him.

We have plenty of other PITA's in our community and they have as much right to be here as anyone else. Forbearance works both ways. The far righties would be delighted to export some of the lefties.

I can and have ignored a lot of his crap. But I draw the line at Nazism.

You can't boot someone who hasn't committed a crime out of a community and there are plenty of assholes everywhere.

But that he "moderates" a public forum like a fascist, allowing his right wing buddies to post whatever vile drivel they choose, while censoring and deleted what he doesn't agree with, aand banning posters who call him out on his shit is certainly an issue.

Ignoring a troll is one thing. Ignoring a right wing authoritarian in a position of power is exactly how dictators arise.

He is a troll. He is nothing else. His "power" is false and is limited to the confines of that Board. He has no significant contacts; he has no political ties. He has no community, except those he has pissed off in his neighbourhood. He holds no sway outside of his keyboard. He is a troll. Ignoring a troll is quite different and the right thing to do.

I stopped posting, commenting, or reacting to posts over there months ago. As they say I. Can’t. Even. Life is too short for the hate and anger that spills over TOB. I did not like the person I became over there. Now, I scroll through it for necessary news (which there is less and less of all the time) and shake my head.
I agree with the “ignore him/them.” CG is right. Away from that board they all nobodies.

I propose another way of dealing with him. I am going to send e-mails to ALL of the agents for Coldwell Banker... https://chapalarealty.chapala.com/agents/
I, for one, would NEVER recommend Coldwell Banker to anyone based on the allowed behaviour by Mainecoons and friends on the Chapala.com web board. I wonder if any of the agents can persuade Tingen to give him the boot since their livelihood depends on referrals and sales?
Just a thought.

It wasn't so bad when Dan Houck was busy helping to paint out graffiti around Ajijic. Many folks donated paint and dropped it off at his house. There should be more of that. Just be sure to take the cans home for proper disposal.

His path to lunacy and grandeur was just beginning. People rarely flip out overnight. It takes time, and a self-nurturing such as his, to go completely over the edge.

Meantime, the thread has been removed. By who? I'm thinking himself.

Dan Houck is who he is: He's done some generous things such as the graffiti project, and is apparently also helping some Mexicans get a higher education. I don't think he has the right personality to be a "moderator" since he tends to ignore the "personal and civil" basic rules of that forum when it impinges on his own political bias, and that is the major problem. Also, that forum definitely needs an "Octagon" for the ranters and ravers which normal visitors don't see. At this point, that forum has deviated far from what used to be: useful trading of information, especially helpful to the newbies.
All in all, I think the forum owners would be doing a public service by replacing him with a MODERATE moderator.

I don't care anymore what he has done in the past. He is no longer that person. And he never fails to remind us that he is or has helped some student somewhere, over and over again. That's merely attention-seeking.

I have moderated a number of forums, even a few of my own. A moderator's ONLY comment ever is to explain, without taking sides or injecting an opinion, why a post has been moved or removed. As in "wrong forum" or "question answered previously" or "too personal". And sometimes a warning: "please stay on topic", or a reminder of the rules.

He owns a house across the street from me in Riberas. The renter left for Canada at the beginning of Covid. It now look deserted from the front, thanks to a lack of care. It makes the neighbourhood look bad and will no doubt attract thieves.

Praising The "Grand Mufti" is like saying Hitler put all the Germans to work, except those that he had killed or locked up, so he was not all bad.

Dan Houck's Napoleonic complex has destroyed a once great forum.... and certainly hurt it's real estate backer.

Benji, i think that's a little extreme. Dan Houck can't be compared to Hitler.  The worst thing he's done is limited to words and allowing unsuitable posts on a local forum (and failing to keep up a piece of property).  When I moved to this area over 12 years ago, the level of graffiti all over town in Ajijic was a real eyesore, and yes, he did a good thing by organizing and personally working on cleaning it up. That doesn't excuse anything regarding the damage done to TOB.

IMO, those businesses which support that forum must by now be aware of what's happening there. They must not be objecting very strenuously since it's allowed to continue in its present incarnation, but it can't hurt to write them.
