    What am I doing "wrong"?

If you come on to this forum and relentlessly tell us we're losers, you can hardly expect us to sit mute. So you're welcome to continue posting your shit - it's a free country in TD land - but don't complain when others slag you off in return.
    To be honest, I take little notice of the constant personal nastiness directed towards me, other than to return fire in a similarly petty way, but such behaviour does beg questions. In particular, why do these people react in this wasteful way?

    The vast majority of posts on TD are pro-LOS, which is hardly surprising, as the vast majority of members are people who have migrated here. Thus to try to add a bit of balance by stating less than rosey observations or raising issues that are overlooked in the constant flurry of "thaiophilia" is to me quite normal behaviour, especially as this seeks to stimulate useful and insightful dialogue and debate. However, a few members find my posts highly objectionable, and retaliate with a barrage of personal abuse, time after time. This behaviour makes it seem as if such people have such fragile egos and reasons for being in Thailand that anything that "rocks their boat" is automatically deemed to be evil, and deserving of destruction by whatever means necessary.

    At the end of the day, my posts make up but a tiny percentage of TD content, and yet such people still choose to read them, then get upset and retaliate. So why?

    You are asking a question.

    Are you prepared to answer without using personal abuse yourself?

    Yes Lily, I have wiped the slate clean, and will not be nasty towards anyone until they are nasty towards me.

    I think if you were to post some constructive stuff, on a different theme..maybe.
    Every single thread of yours is mergable.
    You can include the old ajarn one while you are at it.

    no variety, same old Thailand is shit and your shit to live in the shit threads.

    Well then, have you really read Benbaa's post that you have quoted.

    That explains it, more or less, I think.

    To be honest mate, I don't need to write constructive stuff (although I do occasionally), because there is tons of it already provided by other people. Hence I prefer to stimulate debate.

    Are you sure they get upset? Maybe they're just having a laugh. I dunno about everyonr else, but I'm joking most of the time and I think people like Squirrel and DrAndy are as well. Some of the others may take it seriously, but I'm sure no-one is badly upset, or, as you say they wouldn't read the posts.

    I, myself, view a Smeg thread as the chance to watch a good fight between two prize contenders with a will to win - I'm the one with the ringside seat, who sometimes gets a bit of blood and sweat on my shirt, but don't worry, I won't charge you for the dry-cleaning, it was only 239 baht from Big C.

    Because you come across as arrogant and uninformed. You try to place yourself on a pedestal above others on here especially with regard to material possessions (when you often have less than many of us) and you have tantrums when people have differing opinions (which is actually very funny). And you like to make veiled threats against people's lives here, even though the threats amount to nothing because you know pretty much nothing about the circumstances of those you attempt to threaten.

    All in all you are a nasty piece of work who is generally not welcomed here.

    You may well be right. There are a few stir-crazy types too who have lost their marbles in Thailand and who find satisfaction at firing off insults at complete strangers, kind of like a kid who sticks his or her middle finger up at people on passing buses, knowing full well that the person can do nothing about it.

    Shinola is a brand of wax shoe polish that was available in the early- to mid-20th century. The original trademark was filed in 1929 by '2 IN 1-SHINOLA-BIXBY CORPORATION', New Jersey.
    Its immortality in colloquial English comes from its use in the alliterative phrase [He] doesn't know shit from Shinola. Implied is that shit and Shinola, while superficially similar, are quite different in effect when applied to shoes or carelessly stepped in. One who fails to distinguish one from the other is therefore ill-informed or ignorant.
    The phrase first became widely popular during World War II. The 1979 Carl Reiner film The Jerk includes a memorable demonstration of the phrase.
    Similar meaning can be found in the expression, doesn't know his ass from his elbow, or the variant, doesn't know his ass from a hole in the ground.
    Retrieved from "http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shinola"

    And then there is you, who brags about not paying tax, about how great your life is, about a house in Ayyuthaya, etc etc etc, and who constantly tries to get one over on me, personally.

    Please quote one of these.

    The only people who would feel threatened are those who are dumb enough to have placed themself in vunerable positions, like working illegally, or having not paid any income tax for years which the revenue dept could demand at any time.

    That was put to the vote recently, and only two people said so, you you are clearly wrong and clearly stupid.

    Hmmm, I wasn't actually thinking of you Squirrel, although I spend most of my waking hours daydreaming of the time I will meet you.

    Do you want some more clues?

    This is a great open forum personally I wouldn't vote to kick anyone out, not even an idiot like Smeg.
