Korat-Farang Farce
« on: September 05, 2011, 01:59:22 AM »
While browsing this interesting "new" forum, something caught my eye.  How is it that people who have only become members in 1-3 months have over 1500+ posts?  Even the Admin of Koratfart hasn't hit the 2000 mark since 2009, so how is it that all these new members of K-F are able to hit 1500-1700 posts in a few months? That would require and average of 17 posts a day, and when you look at the average number of posts from these users on other forums, it isn't even near that number.

How is it that the user names are identical to user names on other forums, but the style of writing is not the same?  For example, embedding videos, drawing red circles around inserted pictures, the size of the pictures, etc. There is one member there that I know personally and have known for a long time.  He is a well known member on another forum.  When asked him to have a look at K-F which had his user name, he assured me it was not him. 

I'm not going to mention any names, but have a look for yourself.

I am a memeber of K-F as well as this forum. The number of posts from a few members are, indeed, high when compared to other forums. The reason for this is that the forum is only very new and, until membership grew, it was necessary to post lots of times to build some momentum.  ;D

I suppose that means, if your nick is already on the member list and posting for you by itself you don't need to register and post anymore. ;D

Not very likely for a nick being used by the same person on three of four forums, and then getting used by another person on a fourth and also otherwise "identical looking" new forum without realising that this nick has been used in that geographic community by someone else known by many for years. :-[

Makes me personally think it might not be safe to register there and start sending confidential PMs to people I know by their nicks only  from other regional forums. They might not be the same!

Maybe the admin there just used some new kind of magic or even distributed "Yaba for forum nicks" that makes known nicks post in two months on one new hardly-known look-alike forum as much as on three old and quite well-known forums together in three or more years all by themselves, and with a completely new style. ;D

Ain't Korat fabulous?

The posts are generally frivolous and joky. Sometimes there is a bit of a debate. No nastiness as yet. All harmless fun as far as I can see.  ;D

Are his "feelings" currently hurt?

The morning brought news: he actually seems to be upset about something posted on this forum. Heaven knows what! Maybe he could be so nice to tell us, post about it here on this forum, or send me a PM, if it's a sensible affair. We don't want to hurt his feelings, just spread necessary and important information. And not be too serious all the time! ;D

This screenshot was in the forum's mailbox this morning:


The sender has asked to remain anonymous to keep the admin there from having problems with the other brothers. He seems embarrassed to have been involved into such an affair naming another forum as reason for him getting banned, and he swears he doesn't know what it's about. He said he made a few posts on that forum, never using a proxy server definitely not provoking anybody or "trolling", always contributing in a polite and constructive manner, posting honestly from his internet connection. And even helped a friend who was visiting his home to register there.

Now, I do understand from that screenshot that the admin of the new forum of brotherly love has already banned a member for what he regards as "trolling". So what! Shouldn't be our problem! I heard before that some animals eat their own babies; what's unusual about the chief of the loving brothers' forum pushing one of theirs out the door into the cold heat?

But I can't keep from wondering about this construction previously unknown to me: "Trolling by proxy - KFart"! What is that? Can somebody help me to find out how a member of his forum can be "trolling by proxy"? Ok, I've heard that trolls often use a proxy server to hide their real identity. But KFart isn't a proxy server, it's a forum! And above all a forum where nobody makes flaming posts etc, where all members live and post in harmony. I'm shocked! Did the banning admin eat any cookies or other consumables not becoming him? Or was he just wearing a shirt of a "disturbing colour"? :-[

In any case the question is: "Is this condition now permanent and should we better take precautions?"

Please contribute by posting your opinion! :)


Naw, I think he means something else then using a proxy server by "Trolling by proxy - KFart" He seems to see a threat for the peace on his forum arising from the facts that have been posted on this forum here. Looks to me like the totalitarian forum, where you even get punished and banned for something you said in another "jurisdiction" and which on top might have been interpreted wrong by the "judge"-admin. Means that even if you're posting on other forums you got to follow his rules. :o

In any case it shows again that this here forum is read intensively, like they're pressing their noses onto their monitors not to miss a letter that gets posted here. We should be honored! :)

Your wear yourself out alfie :blank:

Be a 'Dual Poster'. This is where you create multiple accounts yourself and use them all so it seems like your forum is active, drawing in new members. Use this trick only if you are desperate. But remember, you will have to keep going into your other accounts to keep the secret hidden. If you made like 10 accounts, people will realize something is up. And remember, if you make someone a mod, they can see IP addresses on accounts. So they might know its you.

Thaiga, you are wearing him out with such remarks!  :o

Now he's gotta do even more work... use another proxy server for each nick, just like one's gotta do when posting on another forum to appear as someone else for whatever reason.

Just make sure you don't confuse servers, Alfie, and all of a sudden the nick supposed to be in Canada posts from Singapore, or the nick from the UK posts from China etc.!  ;)

Yeah, pretty sad really. Using a proxy or VPN if you prefer to not be geo-located, tracked by Google or to circumvent government nanny squad filters/firewalls is fine imo. But doing the above to talk to yourself in a effort to get others to join is a sign of an unstable mind........not to mention it's hard to hide your writing style in enough ways to convince a reader each one is a different person.

Once an order is placed with us, payment is first verified. The job is then listed for writers to see, with the details that are given by you. Forum posting jobs run similarly to blog commenting and third party posting, but article jobs are a little different.

Forum jobs are divided up into spots, each of which is a share of the total number of posts that your job requires. Writers view the listed jobs and then take a spot on them depending on whether they have the time, and feel that they can cope with the subject matter of the forum. Our writers are not experts in any given field. If you wish specific things to be included in posts, it can be helpful if you provide references for our writers, to enable them to research the topic for you more thoroughly.

You may also wish to have our writers avoid a particular subject or terms, or to heavily discuss a particular subject, using certain terms. This can be noted when you order, in the ‘special requests’ section of the order form. For third party posting jobs we also need you to provide the list of forums that you wish posted to.

Once a writer has taken a spot on your job they must visit your forum and register a user account. They will make their first post there as soon as their account is activated and ready to go. Forum posts must all be at least 25 words long. More importantly they will be informative posts, rather than simple “I agree”, type statements, and they will all be unique. Plagiarism is a serious offense within our company, and will result in a writer being dismissed.

About 44% fake visitors, "appointed" to autosurf. Plus search engines and spambots attempting their luck. Now how many real visitors, so-called "seen traffic", could find their way there? The number will win the lottery! :evilgrin

They make many claims about another forum and its admin but they never back them up with facts.


Is the above screenshot fact enough, Alfie? :salute
