What? Email rejected for policy reasons!
« on: December 01, 2009, 08:25:14 PM »
I had some questions to ask from two different Thai companies. Looked through their websites to find a contact email address because I didn't want to talk to some monkey from a call center in India whose only job seems to be make me waste money for the telephone call and give up after having lost my nerves. I found out that problems can be solved easily with Thai companies when you can write them an email with a clear description of what is the issue.

But now I had to find out that they don't accept email questions anymore. On most websites you just don't find an email address under CONTACT anymore, just a phone number or mail address. And when you sent your email to "" or like you'll get a return that your mail was rejected for policy reasons.

Are they afraid of too many people complaining via email or too much spam or jokes as email to keep their employees from working?

A classic example of Thai's not reading there emails, from the Bangkokpost today.

`Protect the King' webpage hacked

The government is tracking computer hackers who infiltrated the ``Protect the King'' website and replaced the webpage with a loan advertisement.

``We are tracking them down and are considering lodging a police complaint today,'' acting government spokesman Panitan Wattanayagorn said yesterday.

PM's Office Minister Sathit Wongnongtoey confirmed the website had been hacked.

The PM's Office learned about the hacking last night when a link to from the government's official website,, showed a mortgage advertisement with a fairytale king illustration instead of the website's usual entry page. The ad was still posted last night.

The government created the Protect the King website earlier this year to encourage citizens to make complaints about anyone who they think has committed an offence against the monarchy.

The website, operating on the parliament's server, features background and commentary on His Majesty and the royal family.

It can be accessed through the government's official website.


Now I really can't remember how many emails you get sent when a domain is about to expire but if you check the whois you will find the domain expired in October, they didn't renew so somebody else bought it, of course it's a much better story with words like hackers and stuff but sadly not true, just not checking their emails :(
