Discussion on WW2

I had been engaged in an adult and non inflammatory discussion on WW2. There was no invective or pejorative language involved, it was purely academic among similar minded people. The OP himself had been asked if the topic had deviated from his question sufficiently to close the thread. His answer was emphatic, keep going. Charlie H aka Mr Mod jumped in at a particularly interesting juncture and arbitrarily declared the thread closed. I politely asked that it be re-opened. I admit that by the third time of asking, in my frustration I used the word *** to describe the moderator. That was unpardonable, I admit. But what followed merely made me angry, I was told, in capitals, to stop. Further threats and warnings ensued as if to a child. Terrible threats; such as I would be suspended. I don't respond well to that kind of language, particularly from a 4th division publication such as TV. So I asked them to do their worst. On being told I had been given a cooling off period of 24 hours. I asked them to extend it to 24 years. My grievance in two sentences: I was engaged in a respectable discussion and ordered to stop by the subjective and arbitrary announcement of an unqualified moderator. Upon requesting the thread be re-opened I was treated as a common or garden hooligan using the corollary language associated with such.

To the tvf mods who are trolling this site - there are 50 pages of bad reviews on this site now and someone might make a list of all 50 urls and email them to every advertiser that uses your forum.

Just saying lol.

That's funny Kris, lots of guys on this website complaining about the arrogant and obnoxious attitude of the Nazi mods on your forum, and you are good enough to give us an example of it.

Thanks Kris, or Scott, or Metishead or whatever name you are hiding behind today.

#1130486

By far the worst trolls on that forum are the mods themselves. It is disgusting how they pose as members and create topics which are designed to attract arguments, insults, innuendos, slander, wrongful accusations, iow - clicks.

#1125860

"***" is not the right way to describe their mods. The correct term is "#@*%?

#1125525

What do you expect ? The majority of the mods are brain dead *** who would not hold down a job on any other forum anywhere in the world.

But given time, they will be the downfall of that poor excuse for a forum.

Given time.....the knobs have been doing it for years and will continue. What am muses me is the membership numbers, I must over the years have 100 of them.

I was on there before George took it over when it was just a chat site for hooters. I get a strange kind of satisfaction of building up few hundred posts, them tormenting the mods with enormous attitudes.

Racist Posts

How do they get away with all the racist posts, I thought Thailand was strict about things that defame them and their country ? Not that strict really are they. I'd have banned the site already, when the single gateway come into practice, maybe they are in for the chop then. Maybe the previous owners knew something and decided it was a good time to sell, ThaiVisa advertising must be very cheap for companies to reach out to a bunch of old men who are on their PC's all day slagging off the country they have chosen to live in. I think the main problem with ThaiVisa stems from the ages of the members, they are basically a bunch of miserable old men who married *** and put all they have into building a house in some shhitty little village somewhere, no way out, can't afford to start again, no doubt the *** is just waiting for them to die, no wonder they are so *** miserable.

They make money out of traffic and they bend the rules to allow comments which are actually against the rules. If they enforced the rules there would only be half the comments made and that would cost them money.

It will be their downfall as people are reporting them to the government on a daily basis and quoting the slanderous comments made against Thailand. The junta will react soon and shut them down.

If you look at the posts on the overstay penalties, TV moderators have no problem allowing member call Thai citizens "Monkeys" but say something in disagreement about Israel however minor you get suspended or banned

Desperation creeps in at Thai visa

Today I saw they at Thai Visa now even have had to sink to the depths of making up a fake report on how advertising on Thai Visa has helped some iffy Russian or Eastern European condo/property firm sell a whopping couple of units....times must be truly desperate over there.... the thread was even locked so no one could reply to it calling it total BS and sad desperation. I can't see them lasting the next year. It would be funny if it wasn't so tragic... http://www.thaivisa.com/forum/topic/899150-advertising-with-thaivisa-works-say-southpoint-condominium/

Possibly because there is a building groundswell of bitter backlash from pissed off past and present members who are contacting anyone who advertises on their site and informing them they will not do business with them while they advertise on TVF.

They are desperate and I hope they go broke and close that rotten site.

Reporting TV to the authorities

Instead of airing our grievances here we should be reporting them to the Thai government, and I don't think who is in power at the time matters because the slanderous and insulting comments posted on that site are offensive to any Thai, from the poor rice farmers up to the heads of state. If enough people lodged complaints with the right department something may be done about it, like having them blocked in Thailand. They are disgusting business owners making huge profits in advertising revenue on the backs of trolls and bitter and twisted expats slandering a wonderful country. Hope they get what's coming to them sooner rather than later.

Boycott ThaiVisa Advertisers

I have made many positive and helpful contributions to this ThaVisa website in the hopes of helping out fellow farang; however, I have been stalked by Metisdead who has literally pursued me around the forum deleting many of my posts as some type of retribution. MetisDead has some very real mental health issues and creates a very negative forum environment. My attempts at remedy have been stonewalled. I refuse to use any of the products or services advertised on ThsiVisa. I want nothing to do with such a negative forum site. BTW, once you open an account, it cannot be closed. They keep the account open so they can receive more advertising money. Be Warned.

Interesting to see Thai Visa seem utterly desperate today. They even had to publish a fake article about how advertising on Thai Visa 'works' after some iffy Russian/Eastern European property company allegedly sold two condos through an ad on Thai Visa.

Interestingly the thread was locked so no one could call *** on it or have a pop at he iffy nature of the advertisers. Hilarious.

#1116337

Well if you want proof that Thaivisa has degenerated into a vile cesspit just read this topic, before it is locked and deleted :

http://www.thaivisa.com/forum/topic/897148-british-backpacker-grace-taylor-missing-in-thailand/

It is about British backpacker Grace Taylor who was reported missing and last seen at Krabi airport.

I can only hope the parents of this girl do not read this disgusting forum as some of the comments are shocking.

Some comments were removed but the mods should all be charged for allowing this topic to keep running, 11 pages and more than 250 posts at last count.

In true Thaivisa fashion they will milk this troll-fest for all it's worth as it is more fodder for their evil click farm. This comment really sums it up : "This forum is utterly vile. It is easy to understand why a new person like myself has no interest is becoming part of this community further than the occasional post."

Absolutely he screwed over the new owners, and it's true thousands of the Banned are still listed as members and are not shown as banned.

Well played George, but he certainly screwed the new site owners out of money.

#1063284

Agree, i think he has some serious mental issues to deal with, he and the other mods who are similar to him have made ThaiVisa a very unpleasant site to go to.

I'm sure there are many members who would like to meet him face to face, I know I would.

#1061225

Metisdead is a deranged *** who trolls the site looking for people to suspend or ban for life.

He is not the only *** who moderates the site but he is by far the worst one.

Any mention of AD leads to at least a warning, if not what they laughingly call a 'holiday' in their attempts to be amusing.

If they consider you a 'repeat offender' probably a holiday especially if you mention they ate hand in hand with some very iffy characters, let alone employing a few.

ThaiVisa Customer Service Sucks

I was getting harassed by a Mod (metisdead) who was like stalking me. I complained to customer service. I think the Customer Service person claimed to be Linda (probably not real name) and she said she couldn't look up the list of incidents I mentioned unless I provided links. Clearly she is either an *** or just playing games. How do you provide a link to deleted posts? She told me to bring the issues up as they happen. So, the next day I immediately contacted them (her) again to point out he deleted an on topic post and left the message on the forum "Off Topic and non-sense post". Her response was to say that what I stated he felt was not true. I said it absolutely is 100% true and anyone with any knowlege on the topic would know this. So she told me I should have included links to prove what I said. Mind you this is a forum for opinions. So, I repost and this time include 3 links to show that what I stated was absolutely true. Yes, I included three different credible sources. Of course my post was once again deleted by Metisdead. Again contacted customer service and got Lynda .... long story short she said this post was deleted because I had too many links. She is a nasty *** who is worthless and probably not even a women. George probably just has them use this fictitious name thinking a women will get less grief. Even George is not who he says he is. There is a reason this people are scared to reveal their own identity despite operating a business that includes numerous entities outside the forum. Since then I do my best to spread the word about this nasty and racists site.

"Linda" is the mod known as sbk. What a lying ***.

She always takes the mods side no matter what.

Most of the complaints are about her and Scott. They dishonestly tailor the website to promote their own point of view.

#1166357

Yeah, Linda is a piece of work, or more probably, jut somebody's rubber stamp. But after my experience with being booted by one of the a$$wipe mods for some pretext, and getting no help from Linda, I was inspired to open a new TV account with this brand new email address created in her special honor: lindastinkysnatch@***.com.

The man (and I use that term loosely and with tongue in cheek) has a god complex and obviously no life other that living out his despot fantasies day and night slumped over a keyboard somewhere. Pretty sad really, did your mummy or daddy not show you enough love Alan?

Can we help?

Thaivisa Mod Trolls

Made a negative comment about Pattaya which a moderator, the oxymoronically misnamed 'petecool' took exception too, because he lives there. There ensued a number of weeks of being singled out for bans for frivolous reasons. Including by an aptly named moderator called 'rimmer'. Clearly these people revel in the modicum of power they have to ban and harass their members. Its all very sad really. The mindsets of these people is ironic, considering they are intended to protect the users from the worst excesses of trolls and are the ones participating in playing little games with their members. My advice is don't give them the satisfaction of responding to their ***. I even complained to the useless customer complaints staffer Linda, who claimed she was the top dog and complaints couldn't go any further. They responded to my concerns with bizarre replies that seemed to be discussing something else. But ultimately Linda confirmed that (a few of) my posts in forums fell into a number of categories. They were posted before other people They were short They were not always serious They were funny They were negative One post 'You can't polish a turd' - a response to a ludicrous plan to educate rather than punish bad drivers - caused a ban for using bad language When I searched the forum and found 775 uses of the term 'turd' Including the exact same phrase used the previous day, they stated the reasons for the bad changed. here it is 'There has been some back and forth, apparently they remove such comments as a matter of course from Pattaya News and has been pointed out before you have a habit of coming in with pointless one liners in news. ' Your involvement is up to you, however- you have been warned.

Close Thaivisa.com Down -- worthless site filled with gloomy old racists

Thai Visa no longer serves any purpose except to the few monthly posts of people too lazy too look up information regarding Tourist and other Visas for Thailand. Thaivisa does much more harm that good for its visitors and Thailand. It is full of racist and uninformed posters who dominate the threads. Their cheap lives in Thailand consist of frequenting red light districts and finding cheap young *** to satisfy their desires to not accept they are old, over weight and often alcoholics. They desperately try to find ways to get work permits or visas to stay in Thailand to continue their drunken and ***-ing ways while and in between the sex and booze they spend their time on Thai Visa complaining about everything and trying to pretend they are superior to the Thais. They have given up on life in general and just exist to take viagra and take advantage of uneducated and poor young Thai girls from Isaan. Then they complain about how all Thai people can't be trusted but forget the fact their only social circles in Thailand is *** and the bars that provide them. Thailand and its people offer so much beyond young girls willing to *** for money with old smelly foreigners. And if people are into the sex then Thaivisa.com is not a source for this since they ban such discussions. So what you have left is frustrated old men who are obsessed with bashing Thais and Thailand since their knowledge of Thailand only extends to bar girls. Yet, this doesn't stop them from being experts on everything from railway building to aviation to government to police work when it comes time to speak about any news story about Thailand. They are also a bunch well detached from reality as can be seen by the promotion of very strange unfounded fantasy type theories of the Koh Tao murders despite two people having been arrested and substantial evidence to suggest they are the killers including DNA evidence. Their racism doesn't stop at Thais either ... a news story running (what Thaivisa claims to be relevant news to expats) now is about a Chinese girl getting into a minor scuffle over line cutting and what follows is pages upon pages of racist comments towards Chinese. Yes a VERY MINOR scuffle is what rates for news --- because Thaivisa knows how to keep their racists posters and visitors happy. I would suggest anyone who feels the same report this site to authorities and get it banned in Thailand ... no censorship is not a good thing but will welcome it in a case like this when it relates to a site promoting hatred and racism.

No doubt some people get angry about things in Thailand but often there are some real reasons for that anger. Right now for one thing Thailand is under dictator that jails people for any criticism and jsils people for decades for insulting the Thai royals.

Many are upset about this and tension is rising. The military is abusive and wrong. Xenophobia against foreigners is on the rise due to junta supporters and military propaganda.

Maybe the problem is also one of the military regime in power too. Oncevthe generals leave or are removed Thailand will come back to the people and reality.
