Unfair moderation Thai Visa

If you speak on the forums about something they don't like they will suspend you until you comply and don't argue with their pro Israeli aproach there's one moderator on there called Scott who is really unfair in everything he does Anita of members complain, he has two people who he allows to get away with murderbwhommost likely share his views. They don't moderate properly anti Thai propaganda and the site is full of all sorts of conspiracy theorists who make it like a joke. I wouldn't really go on there again as it's not the kind of place that's fair and open.

Scott is an out an out *** who removes anything he disagrees with. But then he is *** and no doubt only a matter of time before his other sicko activities catch up with him.

#1382922

Yes Scott is as stated above, but they are all in their own little moderator "clique" also over run with gays shoving their agenda wherever they can and that Jingthing ramming his anti Trump agenda any place he can.

#1145932

Scott is a rampant quent who is reportedly uncontrollable in his urges. Alarming as he reckons he works as an administrator in a School for TEFL clowns. Only a matter of time until he's a 'Webfact' exclusive story on his own forum for fiddling.

Metishead is also well known in Bangkok expat circles for being a borderline peado with a strong liking for huge ladyboy knobs in every hole he has...

A new arrival on the moderation team is 'Old Git' from Phuket who has repeatedly paid off local police there to overlook his discrepancies with a plethora if under-age 'houseboys'.

If you put your name to this forum, either as a member or sponsor or advertiser this is the kind of person, and their vile perversions, you are linking yourself to.

#1065010

I have found ThaiVisa to be oddly indifferent to the sometimes acidic back and forth over Israeli/Arab issues. But Scott, a one time UN Refugee guy, has censored one of my text.

Considering it was only one and considering his background, I think he is usually fair. I did not like he censored me but I can also see where I may have gone off topic.

I spent a day or two feeling censored or abused. "They really didnt understand my post," I reasoned.

Perhaps he is out to get me? But over thousands of posts on this subject, on a different side then he likely has, he has not demonstrated what others accuse him of here.

#1024510

Metisdead is the worst mod. He spends his entire day trolling the site and trying to kill discussion and opinions he doesn't like by coming up with strange reasons to delete posts that don't violate any of their strict policies but that he simply doesn't like or are posted by members he doesn't like.

#972049

Agree mod Scott is not objective and deletes posts that do not agree with his personal agenda/politics. Even if you pm him and present a winning referenced factual argument to show that he is wrong he will simply deflect and threaten the much feared (LOL) suspension.

The bottom line is the realization sadness and sympathy for him as life has dealt him the hand of being a thaivisa moderator; and for us, the joy and revelation of not being a thaivisa moderator.

@PissedConsumer972049

The issue with Scott nags me for some reason, though not for your reason. I know Scott's professional background, as many might.

He moderates in the forums I frequent. My views are frequently quite the opposite and argued nonstop. Yet this mod never censors me, threatens me, or tries to intimidate me. I dont mind calling a spade a spade but not here.

My suspicion is people took their coal and went and sulked then raced here to ***.

Grow up! AD

Have a look at how many negative comments are posted about that poxy forum, compared to positive ones. Not just on this site, but on many others.

Do the maths and get back to me.

#1191281
@PissedConsumer1069891

^ Oh Scotty, you do not fool me, go back to that *** you have created at Thaivisa and leave this site to the ones with gripes about *** like you and your stinky pal Metisdead. Troll simpleton, you stick out like dog balls !

#1292561
@PissedConsumer1191281

So obvious this is Scott himself coming valiantly to his own defense. An ***-bandit and an overly PC ninny that is unable to see how he is wrecking a once decent forum with his pro-pink and pro "child migrants" nonsense. Nice try Scott but the OP was truthful and accurate.

Poor customer service

They don't edit posts fairly some people get away with murder and some don't that Scott is really unfair

They removed my post as off topic but left all the others on which I was replying to. Furthermore, when I complained their moderator stopped me from posting and closed the account so not very democratic. I went to their customer services and they were not interested and totally seemed to misunderstand what I was saying. And I believe they also read your private PMs. When I complained they claimed I had created multiple accounts? In my opinion the website is not fair and neither are some of its moderators in how they deal with differing views so I would not recomend them to anyone unless you never want to be able to say what you think if their moderator has a different political view. It's also full of racist comments.

Take a deep breath and exhale.

You are correct.

Were you expecting Oxford PhD's as thaivisa moderators?

Thaivisa Koh Tao Murder Conspiracy Nuts

Thaivisa has recently become the best place for Thai haters to share their nutty theories on the Koh Tao murders. It is like a love fest of one poster after another showing just how *** and uninformed they can be. The Mods on the site have actually got involved with their own posts letting these dimwits know it is open season on bashing all things Thai because they feel so inferior to Thais with money or power. Half the posters don't even live in Thailand but are just bitter because they fell for a *** who they thought loved them but found out they loved the next guy who gave them more money more. These *** believe Thai people (especially women) were some special gift from God for their old drunkard self but found out in the end that Thais thought they were just as repulsive as others back home saw them.

"but found out in the end that Thais thought they were just as repulsive as others back home saw them"

Well said ! The TV forum is riddled with these bitter and twisted old *** and I laugh every time I read one of their idiotic comments and think " hope that bargirl took you for thousands you old fool "

I firmly believe the mods deliberately publish topics that they know are going to attract trolls who denigrate Thais, insult the junta and Buddhism, and spread red propaganda, all of which are against the forum rules. All these posts which are against the rules are valuable clicks which is revenue.

I have started to collect the worst comments I can find on TVF and I am going to post them on every blog/forum/website I can find along with the poster's name.

#932794

Dogs bark, can't be helped.

On the other hand the leniency of the moderation team to the continuous offenses of some users is in dire need of an explanation.

I believe moderators are doing their job deleting posts that go against the rules, not all the time but still; however bans and suspensions seem to me to be decisions taken at a higher administration level and there doesn't seem to be the will to take such measures.

#914167

These haters are supported by the Mods who also hate Thailand and their miserable lives. The name calling and bullying they are allowing against anyone who suggest the evidence does appear the two in custody are likely guilty is beyond anything I have seen.

These haters have created their own CSI LA Facebook club and have removed the ability of anyone to chime in with their thoughts unless they want to be attacked, not just on the Koh Tao threads but the bullying will continue against you on other unrelated threads.

I understand the money making motives behind the site but they have lost any sense of responsibility and have just become *** bags breeding hate. I think they know in their hear of hearts too their days are numbered and those who have protect the site are losing their ability to do so.

A continued campaign to make authorities aware of what is going on within this site will hopefully have it shut down soon or at least put in line to provide substance instead of breeding hatred against Thais.

#1115906
@PissedConsumer914167

You couldn't be more wrong if you tried, those who see the B2 as innocent are far from protected by the mods, they're the ones who have been banned and repeatedly, but those who are allowed to deflect and derail the KT threads are very much the protected ones.

CSI LA is a Thai run FB page, pretty sure it was on the go well before the KT murders, the majority of the people you claim are anti Thai with regards to Koh Tao don't read or write thai etiher, so why the *** would they create a page they can't have any input in?

As Thaivisa website has grown, the founders have scheduled BBQ parties throughout Thailand for members

LOL, not only did ThaiVisa.com appear to have tried to prevent people by sharing their thoughts here (see comment about emailing support first under company info ... to get more abused) they actually are acting like they are doing something good for for members with these parties .... I suggest you read this link to see just what they mean by having member parties ... http://www.andrew-drummond.com/2012/10/flying-sporran-gatecrashes-not.html By the way, they now ban discussion of this investigative journalist and links to any of his articles that often appear in national news publications. Why support a site that degrades and entire culture, nation and its people?

Most of them over 50 who work as English teachers do not have a degree have been in a prison for a while and some have nothing else to do than talking bad about other nationals. The most dangerous country for Brits...it seems that the most intelligent Brits just don't go there. That's why it is as it is.

#779389

Yeah, I had the misfortune to go to a ThaiVisa BBQ, what a waste of time.

A bunch of old men with old ex bar girls, completely boring and I felt so out of place I left after an hour, it was like being at an old peoples home that allowed *** to visit the residents.

A rather entertaining summary but like it or not those couples have symbiotic relationships albeit would not exist without the financial disparities. If it works for them who are we to judge.

I also checked out one of those thaivisa dinners and noticed Thai female companions of the western male financiers eyeing younger more fit males. I do not know if they were eyeing the more fit males due to physiologic needs or financial?

Interesting observation that Thailand can serve as a geriatric care facility that has a working relationship with ***

#753459

ThaiVisa"s attempts at get togethers are a total disaster, a few old men milling around stumbling for something to talk about and their *** wives grazing on the disgusting food.

There is some valuable information you can find in regards to Visas but be warned if you ask a question that you have a very good chance of getting nasty replies that provide incorrect information. You will also be told many incorrect things about Thailand by unhappy...

Thaivisa is horrible - boycott their advertisers such as Walen School and Sunbelt Legal Advisors

Thaivisa selectively enforces their rules. An example is the forum is full of negative generalizations about Thailand and Thai people by those ugly expats that Thaivisa dot come caters too. Yet if you were to post a negative generalization about another country...

I think few people would need too much encouragement to boycott either, especially Mac Walen's visa mills. The internet is rammed full of dissatisfied people he's scammed. When he began posting on Thai Visa he was protected like a jewel and even had his shills 'defending him' but a liar and a cheat will always come out as such, and he always wound up looking a prat and getting the topic locked.

Customer Service at Thaivisa.com sucks

Don't bother to complain to Customer Service as suggested. They will always blame you for the mod's behavior and more than likely will let other mods know to go after you and your posts. How they can let some of these Mods such as Metisdead run this site is beyond me. The list is way to long as to why this Thailand Hating Promoting site is a waste of your time and resources to become a part of. The only thing of value is the news stories they copy from the internet and the occasional non-nasty replies you may receive from a good mod regarding a Thai Visa question ... of course you will have to *** through all the nasty replies to find it though.

Although I was banned in November 2015 I receive 2 or 3 emails from them every day listing the latest news and topics.

(I am still considered a member, to make their membership numbers look good.)

Some of the news stories are ok but the majority are aimed at attracting trolls who attack Thailand and propaganda artists who promote anyone who is anti government.

A truly evil empire is TVF.

#989572

Appeal to TV "customer service" and you always get "Linda." What *** *** she is. I have reincarnated myself 12 times not on TV.

One time i was banned for calling MYSELF "the ***." Linda insisted *** is an obscene word. Where do they find these ignorant people?

Thaivisa suspends and bans anyone who they don't like. If you complain about a mod for targeting you because of your views then another mod will suspend or ban you within days. Anything they Thaivisa.com doesn't like they will delete it as being "nonsense" even though...

Banned for posts the disagee with *** marriage

Thai Visa is known for its ***, Nazi-like moderators, but why have a "discussion" on *** marriage if most of the posters who do not support it are suspended or banned no matter how logically and politely they state their position on the issue? That is what happened there recently and it is pretty typical for this propaganda spewing web-site. It is a private business, but why not ban certain sensitive topics if they are not going to allow both sides of the issue, instead of rigging the posts so it looks like everyone agrees with their very slanted point of view?

Thaivisa.com defames thais and thailand.

Thaivisa.com is a website that is primarily created to give foreign nationals resident in Thailand information about visa regulations in Thailand. They also generate huge revenue for advertising and banners. Nothing wrong with that. The big problem is their forum which allows writings that defames thais, Thailand and Thai society. If someone criticizes Thai visas forum they will be banned immediately and thrown out of the forum moderators. If you refer to any article written by Bankok Post you will also be thrown out of the forum. Thaivisa.com hate Bangkok Post, and can not stand that they are mentioned at all. Thaivisa.com thailand gives an undeserved bad reputation, and their site should have been put down a long ago. They treat Thais like ***, look at the Thais as less intellegent and demeans allmost everything thailand do to improve. Of course there are some things that can be changed for the better in Thailand, the same applies to all countries. No country is 100% perfect. Thaivisa.com actually reminds me a little bit about the two grumpy old men in the Muppet Show, criticizing everything and everyone. We do not need them. Thank you for reading this post. Have a nice day without: www.thaivisa.com

I agree with you completely. These farangs, and (some of them not living in Thailand at all) who have a beef with the country post obnoxious and slanderous posts.

I have been banned and kicked out several times for pointing that out (you can sign up several times using different proxies). I hope someone will come along and sue them for defamation !

Unbelievably the Thai Bashing has increased since the ex Visa stamp crook sold the site to another bunch, they bought a lemon.

Watching these posts devolve into personal attacks on TV members- JINGTHING- because of their/his sexual preferences reflects why you guys are here, and not in the herd you indict. Really?

Attacking a man or woman because of their sexual preferences while simultaneously indicting TV for... anything? You guys reveal your measure with such posts.

Even his off cuff posts reveal more integrity than that reflected by some here. ad

#1116816
@PissedConsumer1069896

JINGTHING is ok, regardless of his sexual preferences his comments are harmless compared to some of the other TV members. I used to get a laugh from him.

The ones I have issues with are the trolls and/or Thai bashers who continually break forum rules and get away with it.

Never seen such a badly run forum in all my life. Cannot believe the Thai government allows them to get away with publishing the offensive comments that are posted every day.

#1069894

You really can't discern the site from the members? ThaiVisa has permissions and not permissions on the repost of material from other sites.

Some sites cannot be reposted because of legal restrictions. This is generally known.

TV walks a fine line between advocacy and censorship. It is not the site as much as the constraints of the country they operate within. Also, a cultural deference would have them err on the side of caution.

They are guests. So, when the various topics present that have for and against, pro and ***, the mods actually permit a width berth, within the constraints mentioned above. This is law and respect as guests. Because a given OP may have a decided body of members *** for or against a given topic does not constitute the POV of TV.

It could, I suppose, but you are suggesting it does. This is not correct.

If this is the measure of the posts you offered there it is no wonder you have found yourself unhappy. Also, libel, slander, defamation are extremely sensitive topics in Thailand. Accusing someone of the same also constitutes the same threshold in law.

Be aware. ad
