    The above quote comes from one of todays threads on SF .....How does their Admin know which are genuine people that want to join and get info on Surin and which are trouble makers.
    If you use IP changing software your going to be turned down straight away ( most spam software use proxy IP's so they're easy to spot ) but if you're on your own IP then you should be allowed to join and banned if you overstep the rules.
    Obviously Dave must have ESP or he's talking bollocks about turning down potential trolls on a daily basis...... As they have their registration turned off .......I would says he's talking Bollocks

    A backhanded compliment, also known as a left-handed compliment or asteism, is an insult that is disguised as a compliment. Sometimes, a backhanded compliment may be inadvertent. However, the term usually connotes an intent to belittle or condescend.

    I remember shaking my head about this in the past. Ivor likes to keep up this narrative that the forum (of 15 blokes) is under siege by an army of trolls ''on a daily basis'' and that ''you don't see what goes on behind the scenes etc''.... Its just psychological games being played by Ivor, where some of the weaker minded members of the community will get defensive over this irrational belief that the community is under attack, and ultimately back him up over his paranoia
    When you finally open your eyes, you realise there isn't a problem with the SF community at large, the problem lies ONLY with Ivor.
    He would have been well suited at fox news or one of the other fear mongering News networks.

    You need to get yourself Banned Coffee, Its the only way to true liberation.

    Its quite simple, you just have to say something like: I think its a bit excessive that _________ got banned.

    You'll be banned in no time.

    As you know, It's not that you can't criticise or question Moderation as per Forum rules on Surin Farang, you are not allowed to even talk about it.

    If I was banned how would I ever know that ****** ****** is having a breakfast special over the weekend ?...or that Christmas dinners will be held and reservations will be required or not required at ?...or home-made sausages available from ?...or German beer by the case from ?...or home , truck, motorcy for sale locally ?...or IMM-KCI's new rules ? (Partly in jest.)

    I don't require to be banned to question those in authority. Sadly I require others to join that fight to be successful. Unfortunately except for one other the voices were not heard. Sad but true.

    Every forum has its own style. It's just a matter of time until the formula of each is stirred to see which are successful in their own right. It still amazes me how many people buy the gossip star mags after waiting on line at the check-out counter. They are among us. Good grief.

    Plenty of Expats in the Region are privy to that very information without having membership to SF.
    Those with a social life anyway.

    There is always Facebook... lots of good local info on there .

    I noticed today on Facebook that a new water park is opening in the Locale and that one of SurinFarang regular posters had made a remark on their page ...Going by the spelling I'll give you 2 guesses who it was

    Yes you are getting you arse blasted ,not for your stupid, irritating and mildly annoying views on Surin's Great New Water Park but because you're are a moron that can't spell.

    Now if it had been a local Farang opening this water park and posted on SF, he would have been offered a sponsor page,along with a string of 10-12 great reviews and a thread started up to recommend that the next SF Get-together should be held at the Water Park with the Forum owner offering a free BBQ

    I saw that. A fantastic looking outdoor water park for Kids opens up in the City and this grumpy old Sod has to start moaning about it.
    ''Total arrogance and no regard for others.'' He said.
    Great way to endear the local Thais to the Expat community you

    ...or, there are only a couple of active and loyal members [that haven't been ousted] that recall those days and the handful of dirty deeds by the most honourable Dave. Those were the days.

    How he has managed to live with himself and promote the present image is quite beyond me.

    Kin to sociopathic behavior.

    And don't forget my personal favorite...

    Live music and cheap spaghetti in Corner Cafe Restaurant on Sunday

    Cheap spaghetti. Sounds tantalizing.

    #2 You have been offered a Job here .
    There is no other reason to come and live here

    If I was to relocate I would defiantly find somewhere near the coast. I lived on Koh Samui for 3 years but moved up to Surin because of #1 and for a more quiet way of life.

    Best to travel around until you find somewhere you like........I've heard some parts of Spain are nice

    Do yourself a favour and rent a place to live in for the first few years.

    Gives you opportunity to move on and most importantly check out the old girl and her intentions

    Your Memeber
    Thanks a lot, Helge. Actually, I was in her house, met her mom and sis. And, I do plan to rent first in Surin city, 40 kilometers from her house.

    Anyone bought property using Thai limited company?

    Thank you very much to those who reply to my 'Why Surin?' post.

    I'm wondering if any member bought property in Surin province (or Thailand) using limited company? Is this more complex and expensive? Is there good law firm that you can trust? I understand all risk associated with Thai partner, she/he may stop liking you someday

    Thank you in advance.

    Still after all this time, Members who thought when they signed up and that their personal details were safe in the hands of Surin Farang's Admin Team are still finding out their personal details are still being shown to anyone on the Internet .

    Apart from mario299 mario299 | Surin Farang Community Forum and those members that don't want to hide their info, I guess that's down to them

    As a constantly banned member/ trouble maker of said forum, I cannot imagine
    Why any of this is any interest to you?
    Or do you enjoy slagging off a local expat business mans enterprises??
