Banned For Being Positive !

Why people only can be so negative and not even tolerate positive view on Thailand?

Last month i was banned from Thailands biggest forum ThaiVisa. And all because i promoted to post more positive news about Thailand.

ThaiVisa mostly if not all, posts the most negative and cynical news and topics. Basically its a forum for haters; thai ppl are stupid and incompetent, police and officials are corrupt and incompetent, basically Thailand is stupid and a big joke, according to most posters and endorsed by ThaiVisa.

But its really like this. Positive ppl see positive things around them. And ppl with their head stuck in their arsehole, well, they only see ****.
If you ONLY see negative things, it might be more a reflection of your personality thatn an actual represantation of the world around you.

Thanks, lets be positive. ;-)

Good post . I totally agree .There are negative people everywhere , and i firmly believe that changing countries or even continents does not change a negative , miserable persons personality .
Some just love a good moan , as i do on occasions , but if you smile at life , life generally will smile back .

I was once a member of Thai Visa. One member used the handle Mentally Disturbed. I made a post and mentioned that although I knew he was mentally disturbed, that he was wrong. For that I was given a "vacation" and wouldn't be permitted to post again until I apologized. That wasn't going to happen and I was NEVER going to apologize. I haven't been back. Before that I was warned to spell California correctly. I had been spelling it Kalifornia. I also could no longer call Kalifornia the Land of Fruits and Nuts. Since I was at odds with the homosexual group that controls the forum, I knew I would soon be banned. Good riddance.

If you haven't been banned from Thai Visa, you haven't been in Thailand long enough.

Wear it as a badge of honour. :D

I have been a member of Thai Visa for a few years. I find it to be useful in terms of getting good advice on a wide range of Thai related matters. Never had any issues with the moderating team.

TV does have a pretty solid Thai bash team that never lacks for volunteers to repeat the usual schtick about all things Thai. They are best avoided but some do need a bitch slapping which can be hard to resist.

I have been a member there for over 13 years and have had posting privileges suspended several times. When that happens, I voluntarily go MIA after suspensions expire. I do note that my suspensions have been triggered by maybe only 3 Mods and nowadays if any of my posts disappear without notice, I check which Mods have been online and if I see it's one of the Three Mousketeers, I stop following that thread.

You weren't banned for being positive BTW. As the screen grab shows, you commented on Moderation. That gets you in the dunces corner on most moderated forums and red carded on TV: it's in their rules. You were probably not asked to apologise either, only requested to acknowledge the reason for suspension. Your "third strike" was self inflicted IMHO.

There are a couple of the fora under the “Thailand Real Estate Forum” that have a very high signal to noise ratio. I mostly stay with those. The big advantage that the phpBB software has is its kill file, I haven’t found one on TV yet.

I have had a post or two removed and a warning about a signature that was in place for a few years before the warning but no ban.

Its the same 2 people who mostly ban everyone . I was banned for posting on a trump thread that even though all the posts were anti trump any trump supporters who are reading this thread should not be disheartened as there are lots of people who support trump but their posts are blocked as my innocuous post for trump were . that was it i was banned for life
