Guys, many of us have asked questions about places other than Hua Hin e.g. I remember years ago asking about hotels in Kanchanaburi, and sateeb gave me an excellent recommendation. Did that make us trolls? I hope not. That was back in the days when if you needed to know something, many people came to this forum because it was full of useful information, and its members would go out of their way to help. It was an online community, providing a valuable service.
moater. Homer, laphanphon, 404cameljockey, dtaai-maai, I challenge you all to go back through this thread, and calculate what value you have added. Homer, do you analyse everybody's posts like that
? I often see questions posed on here, also asked on Facebook. That doesn't make the poster a troll, it is more likely that he can't find an answer and is covering all bases looking for a solution.
Cameljockey, Lev has engaged Moderators to to do a job. We don't jump in at first suspicion. We give the poster a chance to clarify. However, you seem to be all over posts, dying in a ditch to defend a person, who you probably have no prior knowledge of. You do not know 100% the person's intentions.
We don't need online vigilantes doing our job for us, we are more than capable. All of this added interference simply makes our job harder, because by the time we've evaluated the original situation, the waters have been muddied because everybody is calling everybody else, and the original post has been lost. Every new poster is vetted by a moderator (you'd be amazed that probably only about 10% get through). Those we let through are because the posters are within the forum's rules
. Likewise, if we make a mistake, we will correct it as soon as the poster broaches those rules. I know it may not be fast enough for some of you, but please be patient.
If there is a genuine troll, don't respond to them, it will encourage them. Without food, they will naturally die.
I hope you all get the picture. If you need further clarification, please PM one of us. We will delete further off topic posts.
