        Since 'BVI is an island' as you say, why are persons offended when they are referred to as Island Men?

    If you have information please provide it to the police. otherwise i kindly ask the police to trace your id and call you in to assist them in their investigations. no sense wasting your breath and trying to hide because you think nobody will know who you are.

    I love that, this person is seeking attention and seems as if he or she is bitter because some island people dump him or her. Get on with life and humble. Learn those qualities from Pork and you might get another island man or woman. Wish you luck
