    Why, honestly, do many of you dislike SMEG?

    Is it because he hits a few nerves with his posts and ramblings?

    Is it because he is more outspoken than many would expect someone to be?

    Does the word ''Thai-o-phile'' make you angry or upset?

    What if Smeg were unleashed over at Thai visa dot com? How long do you think he'd last if they (the mods over at that site/forum) allowed him tyo ply his trade?

    Lastly, would you let Smeg into your premises to teach your family or staff english?

    I for one have nothing against him and respect and or at the very least consider his opinions either way. I may not agree with everything he writes but I don't discount them without some thought.

    As I have always said everyone here has had different life experiences and from those experiences they develop their opinions.

    I think he`s quite spot on with some of his observations, and quite amusing to boot. Although i do think he dwells on the negatives too much.

    ^ Thats exactly my opinion as well.

    Bit of a broken record sometimes and especially as we all know how he feels!

    Winston Churchill's definition of a fanatic:-

    "A fanatic is one who can't change his mind and won't change the subject".

    Sounds like the perfect description of Smeg.

    I guess because he's quite accurate pointing out the faults with Thailand and its people, but, totally blind when it comes to the myriad faults of western counties.
    Also, his obvious distain for those of us that think the benefits outweigh the problems living in Thailand.

    I agree.

    Smeg mystifies me, he's one of those very few posters I can not imagine in real life, I have no idea how old he is neither do I have an idea what he looks like. I doubt he's an idiot, he's observant and thoughtful and bitter about the way things are, I'm sure he loved the country once. I have nothing against him or DJ Pat, they post whatever they want and both can be entertaining. Both posters have never responded to one of my posts in a negative or abusive way, in fact they ignore me completely.

    When I met you in real life you were pretty much exactly as expected. When I met Smeg he was not.

    I dont dislike anybody on Teakdoor, I may disagree with folks and argue or whatever but this shit isnt real life.
    Web forums for me are just a place to vent shit that I dont want to find myself burndening those around me in real life with.
    Smeg just likes to drop by every now and then and smear shit on the walls and see who complains about the smell. If you rise to it, you have lost the battle.
    If everybody on here just sat around kissing ass like on TV I would not come here, you need a full spectrum of opinions, including those from Smeggy.

    I dislike smeg because he only posts negative shit. What is the point in that? All of us already know the negatives about living in Thailand. He should post positive stuff, like nearly everyone else. Then he will fit in. If only he would learn. What a twat.

    .....I might even add, is there that many {unified} that find our Smeggy displeasing? My instinct senses that these so-called distractors toward him is nominal. Although I can't always be in agreement with Smeg, he is straight forward and reasonable....for a Farang.

    Sounds like the perfect description of Smeg.
    Sounds more of a self-discription of the right old evil bugger himself.

    After my last 1800 klm road trip around Thailand I have to agree with Smeg, Thailand is a total shit hole full of retards and rubbish. But hey at least the beer is still cheap

    The problem is Smeg is often right and accurate in his description of Thailand,

    Doesn't mean he is not trolling when posting the negative shit and I am sure he knows very well the few positive things about Thailand but won't share as it would be pointless and boring in his trolling game,

    He sounds a bit bitter though, not sure why. Maybe high expectations that were shattered in a former life,

    I have never met the guy.
    If I don't like what someone posts, I tend not to read their type.
    I have no opinion either way.

    good stuff smeg,
    years of cyber terrorism on ajarn should be applauded
    a real internet legend
    the alleged death threats and stalking could be a bit of a worry but.

    personally i think the place is better with him than without, i agree with msny of his observations even if he may be a bit enthusistic/ possessed about it
    we won it at wemberlee

    I come here to vent and slag off all things Thai sometimes. Then I go and do some work, play a round of golf, or go shag something.. Doesn't make me a bad person?

    Some of Smeg's rants have made me titter.
