    reregistration failed
    got some automated email informing me that I did not meet the requirements
    for membership, whatever they are

    weird, can hardly think I'm banned, haven't posted anything weird

    anyway
    if somebody here could be bothered to ask the SF techs to "re-surrect" my
    as a user, it would be appreciated

    my SF nick is/was melvin
    I wouldn't take it personally and I doubt you have done anything wrong.
    Surin Farang have been having problems with their forum software for quite a few months now, it has a virus/malware of some sort.( maybe wise to even stay away from the site altogether IMHO )
    I have noticed of late with some of my accounts that when I log-in pages take ages to load or don't even load at all.But if you don't log in you can view their Open Forum pages with no problems .
    If you go to the bottom of Surin Farangs main page you will see in the bottom right hand corner the wording 'Contact Us' ,....click on this and a pop-up box will appear on the screen where you can send them a message with your problem.

    I hope that helps melvin

    Melvin, possibly you were playing the 'change a letter to make a new word game' a tad too much. 555

    How has your 500 hp "Khwai hotrod" been treating you of late ? Sincerely I hope to catch up with you in Bangkok for a day on the river. Take care Melvin.

    ♤ Dave the Dude, Yorky or George: if you're reading this please assist Melvin with getting reconnected.

    Yes. All three of the principle posters.

    An inclusive Old Boys' Club without any boys.
    Down to about 6 regular posters now

    The ones that are left seem to think that now their Admin has banned all those that don't fit into their Small Little Boys Club.........the members/posters of old will come back. !!!
    The joke is ......those old posters wont come back because of the one's that are left.

    Issues ?

    Sounds like there's an ongoing technical or software problem.
    Surely proper diets and exercise , prescription medications (ie: erectile dysfunction meds) and mental health evaluations aren't involved in the continuing search for a solution, eh.

    I sure hope they can sort it out for the benefit of their "1,000+" members.


    Boloa, do your contacts know if they've decided to cull all non-active posters after one year without a post or has that proposal again gone by the wayside ?

    When Yorky made a cutting remark Ivor replied " It was just a talking point "

    Can't be arsed to search for the quotes but sounds like Ivor talking bollocks again or just an attempt by Ivor for some OAP Boy's Club bonding

    re sorted:

    fair to say no again I guess, received the following in response to my 3rd attempt
    at joining SF again;

    melvin, unfortunately, the account you registered on Surin Farang Community Forum did not meet membership requirements. Your account has been removed.
    Sorry.
    Surin Farang Community Forum

    I can't see why, I have never seen you post anything untoward's ........no response from the 'Contact Us' option I suggested !!

    In other news

    I see a sleeper has arisen....... 'ozibill' a member from since 2009 and made his first post yesterday with the normal friendly welcome from members

    I wonder how long it will be before he is banned from the Old Boys Club,no doubt Ivor will tell the members it's resent banned member, even though 'ozibill,s ' IP address could prove otherwise . More than likely one of Ivor's Multiniks from when the forum first started , Ivor likes to use these sleeper nik's of his to get the members is a state of paranoia, so feel they are being spied upon by lukers

    Just found out an old friend who has lived in Pattaya the last 15-20 years recently had a stroke. He's around 76-78 I think. As a result of the stroke his Thai wife has moved him to Surin.

    My understanding is he can't talk or eat very well and is wheel chair bound. Gotta be tough on the old bugger as he has always prided himself on his health and being so spry.

    Thoughts?

    Maybe he doesn't want his friends to see him the way he is and has decided to move somewhere quiet to spend the remainder of his time with his wife.

    Talking of somewhere quiet ...Surin Farang Forum has been dead for the last week or so with just the odd post that is more suited to a PM/Facebook than a Forum . I guess that the way they like it on there !!!

    I'm still able to log in but some of the pages are very slow to load ,same as other members have reported but as long and the half a dozen or so that actually use the forum are OK then there is no need to fix their Javascript problem with the forum !!

    ^ Maybe. Not sure. I'm in contact with his step-son. Going to try to help him get the paperwork done with the Veteran's Administration to pay for his college at Stamford.

    By the way I've mentioned this before but the old geezer taught his Thai step-son to speak and comprehend dang near native level English.

    Anyway, it appears my friend doesn't have any health insurance. So probably a lot cheaper to pay for it out of pocket out there in the sticks.

    An open letter to all Surin farang Forum Members

    3 years ago I posted a warning about the Forums upgrade and anybody that has given over their information on the Forum registration is now at risk.All their info can now be read by anybody on the Internet. ( And not by just other Members )and if they don't go into the Forum settings and disable it themselves then all can be seen. Although Dave their Admin has said the problem has been fix , still after 3 years it hasn't !! . New people signing up still have all their personal details on show that are demanded by the Forum owner if you want to become a member !!!

    On Wednesday the 3rd of October a local Guy called Colin Gillard passed away and a post was started in the Remembrance Thread section . You had the normal post's of RIP even although some didn't know Colin. One member called Merlin said "We never met, RIP " and then another member said "Maybe a photo would help"
    Even though Merlin have never met or knew Colin he decided to search on the Internet ( facebook ) to look for a photo that might help other members know who Colin was !!. He found what he was looking for by searching through Colin's photo section of Face Book account.
    I had made a comment along with 2 others who are both members of Surin Farang forum. Because Merlin doesn't know many people ( I guess ) he never knew the 2 other people that made a comment were both SF members ( les...Deerculler ) and peter ( Peter Spoons ). But Merlin did recognize my name because I have become a figure of hate of their Forums Admin because of Threads like this one that points out their utter lies and their Moderators Sociopathic tendencies .
    So Merlin posts Colin's photo and underneath he says's " Alan ***** is/was a friend of his ". The Mod then post's " That is indeed Colin and I am not aware of a friendship as mentioned" Merlin replies "The friendship between Colin and Alan ***** was via their friends lists on Facebook. Colin's page is at: ( and he posts a link to Colin page )
    If you aren't a friend of Colins then the Friends List come up blank so he hadn't found my name on the Friends list but on a the photo he had found .
    Anyway because Merlin's details were on full view to the public because of Surin Farang's Forums Admins incompetence to secure their members personal details I decided phone Merlin ( Bob ) to ask him why he has singled me out and why he not mentioned all the other Forum members who were on Colin's Friends list or any of the other local Surin Expats that were on Colin's FB page as well . When I phoned him I introduced myself and asked him why he has 'Singled me out'. He became flustered and said " you are a friend of Colin's, I have have done nothing wrong" then told me never to call back again and terminated the call .
    All I wanted to ask him was " why he had 'Singled Me' out and not mentioned other Forum members or locals that had known Colin. My guess is he saw my name and thought it would add some Gossip and Spice to a boring forums to mention an Ex-banned member being a friend of Colin's.

    Then the next day Merlin starts a thread called Unwelcome response.

    A Farang had died.

    People were unsure if they knew him or not.


    One Forum member thought that a photo of him might be helpful in that respect.


    In an attempt to provide that help, some searching was done, and I posted a photo of him. I added that he had been a Facebook friend of an ex-member of this Forum.


    A short while later, I received a very aggressive phone call from the ex-member, accusing me of posting all sorts of information about him. I quickly corrected his accusation, stating the comments in para 4 above, before terminating the call with a warning for him not to contact me again.


    I wondered how he knew my phone number, before remembering that it was amongst my contact details on the Forum. Then it occurred to me that if he was a non-member, or a banned ex-member or otherwise, he wouldn't have access to my profile anyway, which suggested that he may have received the number by other means. Very few people have my phone number, but they include two or three on this Forum.


    I do not appreciate receiving abusive and threatening calls from people who neither know me nor have met me to the best of my knowledge. I certainly don't appreciate such calls if they arise from incorrect information passed on to the callers by others. Such behaviour from the callers or others who might know them are not appropriate IMHO. If I felt that the situation arose because of another member misrepresenting a genuine effort on my behalf to provide a little help regarding the death of a fellow ex-pat, then I would cancel my membership of this Forum without any misgivings, regardless of my enjoyment of other aspects involved.


    I have amended my contact details since the phone call, removing the phone number, and shall certainly think twice before trying to be helpful again.
    I wasn't abusive or threatening, I had told him who I was , I was on my own phone and using my normal phone number , hardly something a deranged stalker would do
    I never accused him of anything but only wanted to know why he had singled me out and not mention all the other Forum Members on Colin's Facebook Page or any of the other local residents of Surin that was also on his page . If someone phoned me up I would be more than welcome to discuses anything I had posted on a Forum about them. I guess some Snowflakes are a bit more fragile
    As for abusive Phone call's how about the Forum Admin/Owner phoning one of Forum Members and reprimanding him for having been seen having a meal with me at a local Restaurant . When does a Forum Owner decided who a Forum member eats and drinks with ( un -fooking believable ). I bet none of the Forum members would criticize the Forums Owner for being so obtuse ? Would they post the same things about Him as they have done to me......All I had done was phoned a member and asked him a simple question !!!

    After Merlins post the other 5 or 6 regular posters then sided with Merlin and accuse me of loads of things that I have never done . All I had done was phone a Forum member using a phone number he has put in his own forum details by his own choice ,details in hindsight that should never had been on show if the Surin Farangs Forums Admin had done what they had said they had on this Teakdoor thread .

    Anyway I hope this explains everything and you can read both sides of the story. This kerfuffle has also given Dave P the chance to post some hateful untrue things about "Me" .....when maybe he's the one that should be looking in the Mirror. Him getting caught shagging another Ex-pat wife whist the poor guy was away working is hardly someone I would I listen to as truth teller !!!

    Regards

    Boloa

    you are right, he might have been Australian or American

    I meant typical Anglo-Saxon crazy loner, which can range from Brit to Australian, same same state of mind common to all those gene pools
