Banned from TV and KF again?
« on: February 15, 2009, 10:23:50 AM »
Sure, the trivialities can kill a forum. Do you think sensationalist posting is any better? ::)

Depends on what the sensations are: "Bargirl spotted in Pattaya" or "Banned from TV and KF again"? :D

Start a couple of threads with these titles and see what happens. My guess is you'd get more than the single post (up to now) that was posted today.  ;D

Ouch, you got me there! How can I get banned from those hot spots again and again. Under my original nick I was banned from each of them - but no other - a long time ago. Now how can I get banned from there again and again? Since it isn't me who registers there again and again. Every time I register there I have to think of a new nick and get a new email address to keep my real identity concealed. So be honest: It can't be me who gets banned again and again! nd the stuff I'm posting there isn't the same over and over again either. Since it is posted under another nick each time. So what do you want? A board cannot flourish and have lots of different members in the database, if it doesn't keep on banning. Just serves the purpose of becoming a big and influential board. ;D

So who are you going to ban first?? Please not me!!! Or with only six members is it too early to start baning people?  :P

Banning Guests? How does that work? Can either allow them to post or not allow them to post - but not ban them!

Maybe you should consider registering here or you just cannot get banned!  :-[

Isn't it rather an honor to get banned from there - and still be present with multiple nicks? ;D

It's the game people play there. But you just cannot imagine how often I had to delete my own registration. For various purposes: some getting close in finding out who I really am, or the game getting too boring at the time. I only had the pleasure of getting banned twice from TV and once from KF. Don't ask for reasons. The mods or the admin must've thought there were any. Gets me to a suggestion for a new poll:

"How often have you been banned (under various nicks of course) from which board?" ;D

Good idea so far! But what about spammers? Isn't it justified to ban spammers? And what is spamming: giving notice to the community of another new board with Google Adsense and ads for your law office and real estate agency or some services you "really" only accept money for to cover your expenses? ;)

What has happened between k f admin and you guys on here? One guy was banned last month and his thread deleted for a poll about different forums, and this week the same guy was banned again and his post deleted. Admin didn't like the mention of this board and k f webs forum. other posts in the same thread mentioning other forums were allowed to stand and there are many other posts with links or mentions of other forums. Only today another forum was advertised with no hassle at all. So does admin hate the newbie guy (so why let him join?) or does he REALLY HATE you guys? And why?

If that ain't what they call "censure"  ;D

You should ask (him) why these boards do exist at all! I got the impression they were opened as mockery to his and his Good Ole Boys' behaviour. ;D

kf admin tried to play a political role in Korat by showing up almost three years ago at a preparatory meeting of a venture titled "Korat Expats Club" offering his board to be the hub of that project. But it just didn't fit.  ;)

kf was opened because somebody had suggested to open an own board for Korat at the discussion about a Korat Expats Club on thaivisa. As we learned from kf admin's own words he opened the board then because he saw a chance for making friends. Lots showed up and worked enthusiastically to make kf a success. But too often he let down people by supporting one side against another without any objectivity, not really taking care of the board - which was supposed to be the hub for the Korat Expats club as he offered - as a whole. So the board turned out to be his proof of incompetence. He should have paid more respect to others in Korat.

And why should he not REALLY HATE any other guys who open "competing" and supplementing boards that run without the problems going on on his own board? After all it's his "political career" that went down the drain with the development of his board!  8)

If he can think clearly he will reach out for Monkey's hand...  ;)

Do you think he bothers to read some board with insignificant nonsense as koratfarang.webs.com and koratfart.co.cc?  ;)

You guys gotta think in terms of the responsibility a good admin has. If he'd allow links to these forums he'd expose his sheep to harmful content.

But honestly, I don't think he ever had a look at even one of those boards. If he had he'd recommend them himself. All they do is keep the trouble from his board.

Good luck to Monkey to be readmitted there! ;D

How could those two boards ever keep the trouble from his board? All I can see is that he and his boys are struggling to keep the trouble on the board.  ::)

And Monkey, I don't recall you ever been a member there as "Mitraparp Monkey". You should have told him who were there. How can he consider readmitting you if he doesn't know how much you contributed to his board?

And did you get banned or did you delete your own account?

Really, I don't understand what's wrong with the guy. At one moment he posts clear stuff like:

On a point of clarification, I'd to like comment on the regularly recurring theme of whether people have the 'right' to post whatever they want to on KF.  The answer is 'Of course not, why should they?'   KF is (should be) a friendly community of people with a genuine interest in Korat and issues affecting the town, the region, and it's residents (as well as Thailand in a broader sense).  Anyone contributing posts of value and interest is welcome.   Unpleasant noise is unwelcome.  For sure, one of KF's objectives is to support general community discussion - but obscene jokes, drunken bar-room banter, one-upmanship, and demonstrations of how cleverly you can insult others - fall outside that.  There are plenty of other forums for that kind of stuff.

But when somebody recommends another forum he gets mad and deletes the recommendation. Does that make sense?  ??? ???

IMHO a lot of the above quote is not clear, in as much as it's all relative or subjective. For example:
Value and interest to you or I might be worthless and boring to somebody else.

By definition, nobody likes unpleasant noise - but I like rock music, my father doesn't. My sister likes pop music, I don't. My brother likes classical music and that's just noise to me. Does he expect us to read his mind?
 
Obscene jokes by whose cultural standard?

Drunken bar room banter - Being drunk and having banter doesn't make that banter unpleasant or obscene - it really depends on the topic of conversation and how it is transmitted - nothing at all to do with banter or being drunk. So what does he mean by that? No examples were given.

One-upmanship, and demonstrations of how cleverly you can insult others: Insults are unwelcome of course, but it can be very easy to misunderstand someone if there are cultural or linguistic differences and if those writing do not take exceptional care when they write and post. SR has even commented on this himself:

Communication by web, postings on forums, etc., is much more likely to misunderstood than face-to-face conversation.  Especially when that communication is between people of different nationalities and generations.  Sadly it is sometimes easy to offend people without meaning to.  It is also easy to underestimate the intelligence and abilities of other posters.

http://koratfarang.com/board/index.php/topic,1438.30.html

Finally, how do you judge if someone is trying to be clever? Is he a mind reader? I don't think so. He's a clown (and that's my very own personal opinion) who uses this unclear and subjective language because it's easier for him. Clarity means clarity for everybody. A lack of clarity and lots of subjectivity gives him a lot of leeway.

This has been the biggest problem from the beginning. Any attempts to analyze and define for future reference have been ridiculed and prevented by those who are now crying the loudest. "Court panels" that were "set up" for bannings lacked the understanding of why there had been any "divergent behavior" and that the ridicule played upon them was for challenging their reaction, their reflecting about what could be allowed on "their" board or not after the conflict instead of defining and enforcing clear lines from the beginning. That was working into the hands of hypocrisy to expose it.  :D

Has one of the mainstays of KF been banned himself for daring to question SRs poilcies?

Last week when KF lit up like bonfire night one longstanding member who is usually quick to criticise those outside the KF inner circle dared to criticise SR's heavy handed moderating policy. That member (with a nick of a cheap thai painkiller) has not posted since that day. Before that he was one of the top posters. Are we now seeing equality on that board?  :o  :o  :o

By the number of visitors to this here board and the number of views of this thread this discussion here could really make a change in Korat's cyberspace. Let's not only hope it, let's go for it! 8)

The member you mentioned i believe to be in hiding last week he went into grumpyexpat and tried his hand at a bit of trolling, unfortunately he could not take the sustained attack he recieved, and quickly made a exit telling members they were very cruel ;D :o

As we know if you wish to troll, you have to be able to defend yourself. ;)

Perhaps he realized he had banned everyone from his own board before, hoping they came crawling back and begged to be let on again. The opening of other boards must have been a disappointment to him.

It's so easy to open a webboard. Why stick with a guy who acts like God? ;)

Have more KF members been banned this week? KF experienced  a bit more excitement at the weekend with accusations flying about who was really who hiding behind a made up name.  :-X  A long standing member and another who he accused of being a troll have both been noticable by their absence.  :o  :o 

I think we should start a sweepstake. How many people have been banned from KF this year?

Perhaps Mitraparp Monkey would be so kind as to send an email to his long standing friend (kf admin) requesting the latest banning figures. Mr Monkey could then announce the winner of the sweepstake at a special gala dinner held in honor of the success of the kf cowboy comedy show.   ;D

Hi Guys!

Many thanks to MM for inviting me to this board.  I received the email and replied thus:


Hi,

Thanks for your email and I'm really flattered about your interest in koratfarang.com.  As Oscar Wilde said, the only thing worse than being talked about is not being talked about!   I'm just amazed that KF has spawned other forums in the way it has.

My wife (who unusually for a Thai does not get involved in gossip) says that gossiping is the sign of empty lives and a lack of imagination about how to fill them.  I'm sure that's not the situation in your case and you really do have genuine interest in the well-being of the KF forum.  So again I thank you.

About the figures, there have been no recent bans.  But please do keep me in the loop on that gala dinner - I'm expecting an invitation!

Cheers and all the best,
Sportrider



Running a board is pretty difficult and time-consuming, and it's literally impossible to keep everyone happy.  When I do ban, it's usually in desperation rather than anything else.  I try my best and realise that my actions may upset some people sometimes, but I genuinely have no hard feelings to anyone - as you know anyone is always welcome to join (or re-join) the board.  Even after banning.   Banning is really a way to say 'enough now' rather than telling someone to 'go away'.

Guidelines are there to help because, yes, there is a certain kind of atmosphere, or spirit, I would like to maintain on the board.  And it's no joke, my Mother really does read the board.  Sometimes my final decision-boundary is 'do I feel embarrassed to have this kind of content on a board I am responsible for?' 

On the subject of mentioning other boards, I really don't have a problem.  KF is a service and useful links are part of that.  There is a way to go about it though - a quick PM just to check it's ok would have been courteous - especially when at first glance it seemed that the purpose of referenced forum was not exactly to support Koratfarang.com.  However, now I have had a chance to read some of the posts here I see that there are some people who are genuinely interested in what goes on 'behind the scenes' as it were.  I respect that, which is why I am making this post.

I bear no grudges and feel no ill-will to anyone.  I'll always help, if I can, when someone is in need.  I'm just a hard-working guy, mid-40's with a large family to support, and a love of Thailand and Korat.  Maybe I'm a bit like you? 

Please accept this message in the friendly spirit in which it is offered.

Very best and warmest regards,
Sportrider

Would you really have bothered to look, if the post had been on moderation row? ;)

Now, the purpose of this forum here isn't to support a certain forum or not, but rather to help the farang community in Korat to take care of its genuine problems. The open critique of any forum is just part of it. Is it always just gossip, what sounds inconvenient? Only if we talk about problems we can find ways to take care of them. When some 'good friends' of the admin who are neither living in or around Korat nor are connected to it somehow attack concerned members of the foreigner community "to have their fun" there shouldn't be any question in which direction to moderate.

And that is really the top point of criticism on KF: it lacks moderation! Why does it need moderation when the administrator can ban? Give it a thought, what you caused by starting to ban at all? There were advices on how to handle, some of them you have taken now, after years of escalation. You should have prevented developments like that.  It will cost huge efforts to redo the damage you caused to your own board. You gotta do that yourself. The foreigner community in Korat seems to have understood by now that message boards are not as important as their admins like to think.  Using the board mainly for your own intentions of gaining friends you made choices that tore other friendships apart. :o

No hard feelings about me speaking the plain and open truth please!

Cheers,

Mitraparp Monkey

Hi SR, welcome to this discussion!

I want to note that this discussion here is not gossipping about anybody, neither it is about reconditioning the past, it is only about finding out about how our typical foreigner affairs can be handled best (in future). Most of us do have some minor or bigger problems in their situation as expats in Korat. We can help each other to solve those. But the problem starts at communication already. How to set up the best system of communication to support this?

It was good of SR to take time to respond to this thread. However, I think we'll agree to disagree on some points, especially the PM idea. I can just imagine the scene:

Wednesday morning:
KF member 1: I have a great idea for a thread about ABC. I’ll just run it past SR before I post it though.

Wednesday afternoon
KF member 2: That DEF thread is interesting. I’d like to express my point of view, but I’d better send SR a PM before I do just to make sure it’s fully in compliance with board guidelines.

Thursday evening:
KF member 3: ……XYZ….etc

Friday evening:
SR: Oh my God! WHAT THE F*!*.
Mrs SR: What’s wrong T-rak?
SR: Why is my in box so full today? Some idiot has sent me a PM asking me WHAT? And another!! And twenty more! What’s going on?!! Don’t they all know I'm a hard-working guy in my mid-40's with a large family to support? Running a board is pretty difficult and time-consuming as it is. I don’t have time for this nonsense. I’ve got better things to do than answer stupid queries like this all day. Can’t they decide for themselves? The guidelines are crystal clear.
Mrs SR: I tink dem silly falang have empty lives and a lack of imagination T-rak. You not worry too much, na. Come and finish your dinner.

Saturday morning:
Emails between KF member 1 and 2
1. You’re a bit quiet these days mate. You haven’t posted for a few days. What’s up?
2. I’m still waiting for SR to sanction my thread idea. I sent him a PM on Wednesday but haven’t heard back from him yet. What about you? You haven’t posted either.
1. No mate. I’m banned. Wasting SR’s valuable time. Never mind. I’ve heard a couple of new forums have started up. I think I’ll give them a try. Why don’t you join me?
2. Great idea. What are the URLs?
1. Koratfart.co.cc and grumpy something. I’ll just check.

It was good of SR to take time to respond to this thread. However, I think we'll agree to disagree on some points, especially the PM idea. I can just imagine the scene:

Wednesday morning:
KF member 1: I have a great idea for a thread about ABC. I’ll just run it past SR before I post it though.

Wednesday afternoon
KF member 2: That DEF thread is interesting. I’d like to express my point of view, but I’d better send SR a PM before I do just to make sure it’s fully in compliance with board guidelines.

Thursday evening:
KF member 3: ……XYZ….etc

Friday evening:
SR: Oh my God! WHAT THE F*!*.
Mrs SR: What’s wrong T-rak?
SR: Why is my in box so full today? Some idiot has sent me a PM asking me WHAT? And another!! And twenty more! What’s going on?!! Don’t they all know I'm a hard-working guy in my mid-40's with a large family to support? Running a board is pretty difficult and time-consuming as it is. I don’t have time for this nonsense. I’ve got better things to do than answer stupid queries like this all day. Can’t they decide for themselves? The guidelines are crystal clear.
Mrs SR: I tink dem silly falang have empty lives and a lack of imagination T-rak. You not worry too much, na. Come and finish your dinner.

Saturday morning:
Emails between KF member 1 and 2
1. You’re a bit quiet these days mate. You haven’t posted for a few days. What’s up?
2. I’m still waiting for SR to sanction my thread idea. I sent him a PM on Wednesday but haven’t heard back from him yet. What about you? You haven’t posted either.
1. No mate. I’m banned. Wasting SR’s valuable time. Never mind. I’ve heard a couple of new forums have started up. I think I’ll give them a try. Why don’t you join me?
2. Great idea. What are the URLs?
1. Koratfart.co.cc and grumpy something. I’ll just check.

Hehehe very amusing  ;D  Of course I was being specific, not general!
