Thaiga - there have been some interesting words on this thread - a lot of it goes straight to the point. Would you object if I lever some of this in on the other side  ;)  Hope you are well. R

Nice to see you are one of our viewers - the other side of what - unusual for you where's the ALB  ;)

Roger, we always respect differing views in our discussions, but do please follow netiquette rules now. After all that's why you're posting on moderation row.

Cheers,

JF

Here is a clip from Tom’s article:  "Due to the importance of this election, we are taking no chances with expatriate sobriety-related violence," said a stern National Police Chief Police General Wichean Potphosri. He justified the deployment of over 20,000 additional security officers nationwide as a necessary precaution against "deranged, sober foreigners."

I don’t think there are enough farangs in Korat to cause any trouble at election time, drunk or sober. But, it’s a good excuse for flooding the streets with security officers.

While we are eagerly waiting for roger to reply, but don't hold your breath as one wonders whether he might need permission first, well wait and see

will you stop baiting people Thaiga,they might get into trouble by posting.although i do admire the breaking of the ranks of what could be a comrades pact. i always admire people speaking there own mind. with some it is not about puting the content right in a post but more of a way of trying to look clever,trying to make the original poster look foolish,but it seems to backfire every time. :-[

look on the bright side no more of them silly jokes.  Koratfart.com the place where they always return.

No, Nan, what Roger meant, was asking for permission to confront his mates "on the other side" - wherever that is - with the truth Thaiga expressed in his words, but at the same time warned him of their anger, that this might be dangerous, why he would need to be well - to remain well! ;)

Thaiga - there have been some interesting words on this thread - a lot of it goes straight to the point. Would you object if I lever some of this in on the other side  ;)  Hope you are well. R

But we will never know, whether Roger actually had dared to confront those "on the other side" with the truth. It might have been deleted by the "authority" on that "other side". ;)

We need roger's clarifying statement!

what an interesting thread, But they do come across as having no life and having nowhere to go. so let them be. the admin of that said site, seems a bit of an odd bod, no one would listen to him not to post else where, thats up to the members. forum is running better without them, most only posted attack garbage anyway, no real content. was not that admin a member of this site and even advertised on here. i know lets ask jivvy, if there is no reply then theres your answer

must say i like this do drop in style of posting

Guests should always be polite in someone else's domain, to bad if you or they do not like my reply, should not have mentioned me in the first place.
That's twice recently that people have made needless comments about me.
Sorry if I offend you by twice stating that I always use the name jivvy regardless of where I post unlike some others who post under several different pseudonyms.

Good afternoon Thaiga. I remember your help and kindness sometimes when I was posting regularly here - that Devonshire Rd stuff as an example. I also remember our crossing swords. But I wish you well of course.

I see JF is as jolly as ever.

My post on Aug 22nd was a compliment I suppose - I was asking if I could borrow some lines from the thread to create a discussion elsewhere - it's been interesting IMO. BTW what is ALB ? ATB

Hi jivvy, how old was the "chick/girl" in your story? Upper two digits or even three digits age - after that display of military knowledge, obviously gained in one of the world wars? ;)

Question: Why do you laugh about something as dumb as that?

I suppose you did, Roger. But what happened to the discussion? Deleted by the admin or just moved to a "members only" forum for far too much truth? ;)

Good morning Johnnie. 'The water seemed muddy' to me, in your reply to my first request - so I chose not to get involved. But IMHO, such a discussion on K-F would certainly NOT NOT have been censored or removed by Admin. Actually, discussions do get quite robust on K-F sometimes and are usually without any interference at all. The discussions are clearer too, because we each speak as ourselves under our own one identity, which as you know from MHO, is very much preferable and more honest.

I see Thaiga works very hard indeed on KF and he posts a lot of very interesting stuff - we could use him on K-F to be frank  ;)  I don't know or care about the history between the 2 Forums but I'd observe that 'discussion' does not flow very freely now on either. I should think Thaiga is ready to tear out his hair sometimes with the lack of response. Perhaps the Forums should combine but it would be necessary for the 'edge' I see here on KF sometimes, to be moderated. These are just MY thoughts only, I am not part of K-F's set up at all - just a poster. But I am an 'open' sort of fella, sometimes to my cost  ::)

Politeness and good manners are to be valued in life I believe. Discussion too.

Anyway Thaiga, thanks again for this thread. I also watched those clips about the drug' smugglers.

Didn't realize that age mattered in a joke, I will check next time, if there is a next time!!!!

About the laugh, if you refer to my response to "mum of 3" it is because it was a dumb post by her/him

Thanks for your opinion and "wild guess" about "multiple identities"; but sorry Roger for being so frank to you now: when somebody expects abuse of the forum using multiple identities, he should click the "Report to Moderator" button and let the moderator and admin know about his theory. It's easy to check, whether two post from the same IP address. If somebody is actually playing a vicious game by using multiple identities. Of course we would take appropriate action. When we suspect abuse, we do check even without being asked.

But I wonder, that nine years after the start of the forum, when the topic "real identities" had been discussed in detail and decided against in unison - also with those voting and participating, who later opened a "competing" forum and do complain now about us following that decision - you start to challenge that. Ain't that a little late, Roger? Of course, you can use your clear name on whatever forum you like, but complaining about our policy to use nicks as we like, is a little out of place, I think!

Politeness and good manners are to be valued in life I believe. Discussion too.

Quite right, Roger, now why, do you think, you have been put on moderation row instead of been banned for "criticism" that only appears like perpetual nagging? Why don't we do as it is custom at that other forum you decided to do PR for and just ban for that?

BTW by your attempt to woo away a member from this forum you have shown the desperate state of that "other side". I bet admin and any members will be grateful for that image now. You should have better discussed that move with them before. ;)

 :cheers

But you do realize, that ethics matter in a joke, that "smartness" should in no case go against respect? Disrespectfulness of that extent is neither a joke nor smart, is nothing to laugh about! 8)

Hi Johnnie. There's that edge again. The comments were mine only and no attempt to woo away - I know that you and Thaiga are a devoted team. I was just complimenting Thaiga on some interesting stuff really. It's just sad IMO to see Thaiga work so hard here and with so little response.

As for K-F, well it'll go up and down I daresay but Admin there seem honest and open enough to stand the exchange of a few thoughts without getting testy. As I posted : ''I don't know or care about the history between the 2 Forums but I'd observe that 'discussion' does not flow very freely now on either.''

Roger, do you know the relation between mass and quality?

And what is more important, that people read and think about what they have read, maybe even heed one or the other advice on their further way, or that they read the headline of a thread only and post some nonsense to let others know, they're physically alive still? Look at newspapers for example: few write, many read and others use them in the loo. ;)

You're right, Roger: a capitalized double negative best describes what he would have done. ;)

Of course: "side one has to come down!" Ever thought of the meaning of "two-way-street"?

No, Roger, this forum was opened as an alternative. Try another viewpoint! Because of this "unloved" but widely read alternative your "other side" hasn't been a failure already like that first koratfarang.com, it had just copied. This forum is not just complementing, it's challenging!
