    Warning for any Surin Farang Forum Members.

    Warning for any Surin Farang Forum Members.

    About 3 months ago Surin Farang Forum changed its software because of Malware problems on their old one.
    Unlike most forums Surin Farang have insisted that new members give their correct address and telephone number to become a member and are vetted before their account is activated. ( this info is shown on your home-page )
    Since the Forums upgrade anybody that has given over this information is now at risk.All their info can now be read by anybody on the Internet. ( And not by just other Members )
    A few members have raised this problem with their Admin but so far there has be no response apart from a few of the older members saying like " And thank everyone for bringing this to our attention. Its up to each of us to remove any information we deem to be private and not for general release "
    Surely its down to their down to Surin Farangs Admin to send an email to every member and tell them of the problem or fix it.
    So if you have signed up to Surin farang Forum and given over to them your personal information then I would get over there fast and make sure your personal details are not on show.
    Could you imagine any other site that leaks personal info to stay quiet and let its members sort out their mistake !!!!

    So you have been warned ..... Persec is important on Forums especially when you may say things ...thinking you are anonymous

    Believe me there are a few

    A message from their Admin ... Moderators: Have written pm to Server owner re security issues and will report back in THREAD when reply recieved or would that be construed as 'shoving it in your faces' 555



    What a load of BS...It has nothing do with server owner.......it's just that they don't know how to fix the problem behind the boards ...lol


    If they went to the Vbullitien forum and asked the question then they would tell them how to change the setting so members info was not shown....it an't rocket science

    I had a few friends that signed up and even after being vetted by phone the owner of the forum asked one of them to meet in Surin to show him his passport . I guess he thought it was an ex banned member trying to re-join...Parinoid or what

    and they have members ? why would anyone put up with that shit ? they could setup another forum over night and be free of that kind of BS.

    But when most members are probably old and senile, it's a bit hard for them to propose an alternative.

    Why don't you use your computer expertise to help them out.

    Maybe Slack could give you some security tips.

    Slack would be too happy to be penetrated again, the silly kunt

    anyway, forum software are quite easy to setup, but for a TEFLEr like yourself, it's a fucking nightmare

    Actually you receive a large pepperoni pizza and after 20,000 posts you actually receive a 2-toast toaster !!!

    Sure by that time living in Isaan...old and senile would be the least of one's problems.

    "Oh fook me , I can't believe I've overstayed these past nine years...what am I going to do , teeee-rak ?"
    "It's okay dah-ring ATM - you can go home now. The toaster's been broken for years."

    I know a member that received a 2-toast Toaster ....but he must have been given the Moderators Toaster by accident as all his toast came out like this

    ....Surin - most of the Farang scum and affiliated hang outs are concentrated in and around Mueang Surin and associate with their kin appropriately.

    A sizable province, one just needs to find the very distant locale where any Farang neighbors are 50kms from anywhere.

    Problem solved.

    ( Would it be the same type of idiot ? )

    ( PARDON ME , you did say girl friend...but now she's a bitch. Funny that.)

    It's a great forum. All 12 of the members are wonderful. Great place to go for a nap.

    Not too long ago, 'twas a lively and numerous membered regional forum.
    That was until the backward admin became paranoid, overly sensitive, and repressed towards general interaction and free opinions...

    A true measure that killed this forum was the overbearing [local] sponsorship/underwriting that became the focal point of a "community" forum and the unnecessary protection therefore.

    Excuse my bluntless , Dragonfly , if she's not a pro - why the hell does she owe you 20,000 ?

    Regarding her being a bitch...is she someone else's bitch ...is that the problem ?
    (I well understand that some people pay women to be their bitch.)

    Six years ain't shyte. Basically the bitch (your words) is keeping 3,333 for each year that she was your gf ....sounds like basic maintenance to me.

    In retrospect exactly why do you think a girl from rural Isaan wants a foreigner to give her money ?
    Think again , why did you give her the money ?

    I know of a Thai Lady that lent a local farang money so he could put down a deposit on a nice new red Ford that has never been repaid , even after an inheritance came his way. I bet she's thinking 'why did I lend that c**t some money '
    To be honest 20k is no big deal .....but for some its a house, a car or 800k saved for a retirement visa extension invested in a doomed from the start T-Shirt business . But as you Peecoffee are an Issan Sage and your righteousness has no bounds then you have nothing to fear in a region where everyone is out to scam you !
