Who Is Stickboy?

It would seem a few people have a stick up their ass about who runs Stickboy Bangkok and want to “out me” for reasons known only to themselves. The domain info isn’t locked, I’ve shared my photo online and have met endless people in person who know I run this site. It’s no big secret who I am but there’s still those who think I’m trying to hide my identity and feel the need to reveal all about Stickboy.

So lets put this Who Is Stickboy? bollocks to bed once and for all as some of the keyboard warriors are so off target in identifying me it’s bordering on hilarious. I’m also a little concerned for the people who are being wrongly outed as me on several Facebook groups.

As for those sharing my name, UK address and phone number etc – that’s a pointless effort when you think about it as all that info is freely available due to the fact the WHOIS for the domain name isn’t set to private. Anyone can look it up using a million and one websites but I’ll save anyone remotely interested the trouble with a screengrab from GoDaddy, although I’m certain 99.9% of you couldn’t care less what my name is.

Admittedly, there’s not many photos of me kicking around but I have shared pics of myself out and about on social media, I just don’t do it often as I think the readers and followers would prefer to see pics of scantily clad hotties rather than a 44-year-old Scottish bloke who looks 10 years older.

See how old I look for yourself as I’ve shared my ugly mug below in a photo taken a couple of months back with the girls from Club Electric Blue when I was there doing some photos for the site.

Don’t be shy about cracking white skin / milkman / ghost jokes in the comments section below, it doesn’t bother me as I heard them all a few thousand times during my first week in school. Water off a ducks back 555+ (BTW, I suffer from Oculocutaneous Albinism OCA2 just to save any guesswork)

Another bee some people have in their bonnets is me using the name StickboyBangkok which is seen by some as a ripoff and to others as a good marketing tactic.

How I came to use the name has been up on the About page since day 1 but let me save you a click and paste it below.

What’s with StickboyBangkok – you just stole that from StickmanBangkok, right?

Now that’s a longish story and the answer is yes and no. If you check the domain registration history you’ll see StickboyBangkok was created back in 2006 which was about the time when Stickman got himself in a bit of a mess with an online feud with a guy whose name I can’t recall. At one point it looked like he was going to shut down his website and I had the brainwave of picking up where he left off. He didn’t close down and to this day Stickman still publishes his weekly column. So that plan was shelved.

In 2007 the site was used as part of an online treasure hunt along with 500+ other Stickboy related domains. In early 2014 I decided to revive SB Bangkok and relaunch it.

The bottomline is this. Stickman does his thing and does it well. He has a loyal following who will probably have little to no interest in what goes on around here. The world wide web and Bangkok are huge so there is plenty of room for everyone.

Stickman himself told me to “carry on doing what you are doing” when we briefly met last year at a party and I asked him if using the name Stickboy was a problem. If there had been any issues I’d have switched to using mrbangkok.com. There weren’t any, so I didn’t. We have spoken several times since and the topic has never been mentioned again.

I’ve also had the logo and Stickboy cartoon since early 2007 and wanted to use them and seeing as the man who inspired the site doesn’t have any problems with me using the name StickboyBangkok, I don’t see why anyone else should.

Now I’ve covered the website name as well as my own what other “secrets” are there about myself that I can tell you? I still owe a former business partner a few grand. I’ve got two half brothers. McKay isn’t the surname on my birth certificate… Zzz…

I really don’t see that ANY of this matters if you stop by now and again on your internet travels to read the stories, laugh at the pics, watch some videos and scratch your head at my occasional random thoughts and opinions.

I’m sure this is how most of you feel and don’t give much, if any, thought about who Stickboy really is. Best to leave the trolls and nutters to it as they seem to be doing a great job without the need for any more help.
