    BKK Post and TV

    Why are Thai Visa now banned from quoting bits from the BKK Post?

    I think PhuketWan don't let them cross post either.

    When The Nation began a partnership with them, the BP's response was to ban all links and quotes from being used on the forum.

    Yes - been the standard for some time. From the George era to the current corporate group that purchased TVF a while ago.

    Highly selective sources only as regarding to news/info OPs [sponsors, underwriters, friendlies]....and on top of that the restriction of members authoring news OPs - only admin/mods can create news threads.

    Which is odd, as they're not truly rivals within the reality of things.
    There is this surface image of difference that has been invented.
