HERE'S WHAT'S GOING ON WITH THAIVISA

This comment from below says it all: When that old rogue George sold to Dan Cheeseman and 'Choice Media Asia' in 2015 some Mods were rewarded and the rest were regally SHAFTED. The word on the grapevine at that time was that 7 of his inner circle moderators were going to get between 500,000 and 700,000 baht as a goodwill 'thank you' gesture. All had to sign confidentiality deeds. 50% was to be paid upfront with the balance within 6 months. So the loyal servants of George that weren't one of the Lucky 7, were well and truly shafted by George. The lucky 7 were; Scott, Metisdead, Rimmer. UbonJoe, Charlie H, Crossy and Jai Dee so when they say they are not on a salary that's most probably true. Word on the ground is Dan offered them all some equity stake in the forum so if it was sold further on down the line they would realise a further profit. Hence they stay on board, create the innumerate spam posts and attempt to keep the ad revenue coming into a failing site. But they are not happy, that much is sure, and if another sale doesn't arise or the site goes for a song then all their loyal efforts will have been in vain. I've actually met Jai Dee in real life he is a respected travel writer and a good guy and as far as I know no one has a bad word to say about him.

User's recommendation: Don't visit the site.

Dissatisfaction

I was banned finally by Metisdead because I suggested the origin of the coronavirus was not in China. Apparently I am irredeemable. The site is anti-Thai and completely Sinophobic, focusing instead on America which is the home of many of the moderators. Most of the...

The laughingstock of the Thailand expat community

Covid has given me a lot of time on my hands, and I ended up on that sewer of a forum. Again. It is, hands down, the laughingstock of the expat community, and mocked by everyone outside of that forums 20-30 active posters. Moderation is a joke. Overbearing and so...

I deleted my account on Thaivisa yesterday. Shame really because a lot of the forum is pretty decent. Visa section is generally helpful and health section is very good. The problem is the coterie of moderators who have chosen to censor anything critical of Saint Joe of...

Rampart Toxicity & Misinformation

While ThaiVisa might be an ok source for news, the moment you scroll past the articles into the forum it's a complete and utter cesspit. What I can only describe as an eternally bitter circlejerk of racist, ignorant and self righteous old men, patting themselves on the...

Termination of website

Not the useful site it once was.

Used to be a non profit place for good banter and useful advice: not any more. It is now a commercial site run to make a money for the owners. All they are interested in is getting traffic so they get more ad revenue. They now want to appeal to the lowest common...

Warning to Others

The home of haters, Thai bashers, racists and trolls, avoid like the plague if you want helpful or useful information about Thailand - mostly low IQ posters incapable of understanding the real world.

Hardly surprising as most Thais are racist selfish and living in a corrupt unplanned system.

#1854583

Ad revenue down around 96% of peak barely able to pay its staff and its owner Dan Cheesmean fled to Ko Chang with his family scared to stay in sexpat heaven Pattaya. Full of spam Chinese/Korean/Russian ads stealing money and mods who create fake troll accounts to generate the meagre revenue.

There is nothing like it in the modern global expat world. AVOID

Skip reading the BS on ThaiVisa

ThaiVisa used to be OK but after being sold went downhill very quickly. It is a 100% clickbait site that rips off readers and advertisers. Fake news is put out as real encouraging responses. Often going on for 100+pages. The latest was about requirements for health insurance. Of course, health insurance is a major advertiser. At least one moderator seems to support a particular health insurance company (and probably gets something in return) . Any mention of their business practices get the writer placed on detention or banned. Some moderators have some expertese and stay within it, Others, step outside their area and make fools of themselves. Very sorry forum.

Zero free expression

ThaiVisa forbids any discussion of their deceptive business practices. They post baiting articles to promote mass hysteria so as to promote commentation that goes on forever. They need to stick to the truth and check their facts before publishing.

Lots of posts on USA politics get deleted when they do not coincide with the personal political beliefs of moderator . Nothing to do with Thailand.

When you present a well though out coherent factual argument the moderator simply doesn't care. Very much in line with social media censoring conservative opinions.

Those posting in agreement with the world as presented by CNN virtually never get posts deleted. Retreating to "safe spaces" is of no utility since reality is Trump won the election so thai visa forum mods should put on their man pants, remove their diapers, and learn to face the world.

#1738303

The thaivisas forum has starting some moderations at news articles which I hope is from our sending translated copy of insult posts to the Thai news and some authority. We will continue this actions until those insulting people are removed from forum posting or taken control of to stop insults. Translated copy we willl soon post with reasoning at gab dot com #tvisainsults
