    why are all Phuket threads from the Phuket Gazette?

    Just wondering as to the reason why all the threads from this Phuket forum originate from the Phuket Gazette? Lack of originality? Lack of personal views? Dumbed down from the management of the Phuket Gazette? Seems to me every other article from the local press including the wan and others over promote their pet projects, personalities or favorite developer group. I've been banned without reason from posting on the PG forum. No explanation given or offered by PG, but I assume I was anti-PG opinion far to much. Anybody else have a similar view of local News and the lack of original posts on this forum?

    I agree its a slow news day so I guess I am fishing for PG supporting comments since that's all that's being posted here.

    Why the fuck would you bleat again about the same subject, when the last one got MKP'd?

    I think you're a sucker for punishment.

    What this thread needs is Impact.

    Here is a picture of a load of lazy, thieving wankers. What do you think?

    I see, the reality is there's no competition for the PG or other rags. Why don't you just say so and drop it? As for starting new topic related to Phuket I can do this but the question remains why is all the content related to Phuket only cut and paste of PG news stories? BTW I did as suggested and posted in the proper location and for that I'm taking heat? Com-on boys...this ain't your private club is it? Then again maybe it is, that's why the support for old cranky posters here and abusive language toward newbies. Its your forum and you can keep it anyway you like, but you're sounding more like the PG, BP and other's every day IMO. Time to search for new less narcissistic managed boards I think. Wonder if that exists?

    Is it TD's fault that its Phuket members are so fucking bored, the only thing they ever have to report is crime and rip offs?

    Not bothered what Grumpy Arry says I still like much of Phuket and its environs. So I will try to illuminate with a picture thread.

    Must admit that I will take a good look at Krabbi to live as it has taken action to stop the rampant thuggery and destruction of its natural beauty that is undoubtedly rapidly destroying Phuket.

    Must say the PG has a very interesting article on how fat Phuket cops are getting! Now not sure if this is not an underhand reference to them living the good life on all the extra income they earn

    Still the PG is not up to the standards of the News of the World yet! Perhaps Rupert Murdoch could take it on and change it to a newspaper of quality,honesty and enlightenment!
