    Influx of new posters

    Lately it appears that there has been a significant number of new posters from other forums posting on TD.
    For what ever reason banned ,pissed off,mod issues.or just a change of scenery.
    Can someone set up a poll on what forums they have left to come over to TD in the last 12 months?
    And why they got pissed off on their old forum?

    Perhaps the new thai internet laws are causing a tightening of the screws in moderation policy for those forums with a lot of money to lose. No posting about anything except the weather and the english premier league.

    I'd presume most of the new members signing up come from TV, but i have posted a few links to various threads on this forum on pattayasecrets.com and notice a few members have signed up from there.

    Also, you can't complain about vessel safety on the water, just suck it up.

    ^Nobody died or got eaten by sharks when the last one sank this week, so this week they have a perfect safety record for lifes lost on Koh Samui ferries, thats a pretty good achievement I reckon, normally quite a few die

    I joined the TD so as I could have some intelligent conversation with dirtydog. Bangkok Phil just wouldn't communicate with me & George banned me about 2 years ago in a fit of rage cos of what I said about his girl working in one of those sex call-centers.

    I'm not complaining at all, just calling attention to safety issues, kind of like the OSHA in the USA if you understand. Not sure what that safety org is in the UK.

    can you explain what happened?
    you pointed out that a ferry that sinks isn't very safe and the mods don't like it??

    Just read the thread over there and have posted saying that you are owed an apology.
    I'll probably get suspended, but, what the hell.

    An apology? The nasty git is saying that maybe Thai ferries are unsafe and that people could die, thats a slur on Thailand and their great achievements in safety and safe working practices, anyway if he weren't such a heathen he wouldn't worry about dieing or being maimed and injured cos he would be a Buddhist and believe it was just Karma and his next reincarnation would be better........

    Don't suppose they have an annual, "Songkran Death Poll" on tv? you know where you get to guess how many will be killed over the holidays, always good fun that one but causes lots of arguements cos they dont include the dead from Chonburi

    In Phuket, they set a target for Songkran road deaths. Strange.

    yeah, that was surprising, especially cause most of the time I tell how much I love Thailand and Thais. But, I do call a spade a spade and that is not allowed on there anymore. I think maybe they're getting so many hits from google or whatever that they're trying to whitewash the place to get it more PC. Can't blame them really, as a shameless capitalist myself...

    Yes, you are 100% correct. That was purely ego from her, and I hope she enjoyed her power moment, maybe one of the few she gets in life.

    Some of their mods do seem a bit power mad, ie with threats of holidays and bannings, I mean supposedly the posters are all supposed to be adults so threats are pretty much a waste of time and don't achieve anything apart for the ego trip I assume they get.

    most of the TV crew are coming over to have a gander because of the on going thread in bedlam.

    there will only be a few stayers and most will scamper back over there after coming to the conclusion that teak door is not to there liking.

    unfortunately because of the nature of this forum it scares most off but if you think about it, thats a good thing as it keeps it exclusive. if it suited everyone it would end up like the TV.

    one must hang in there and roll with the punches to apreaciate this forum.

    bit like fighting for a title at times.
