Gentlemen, Well, the one thing I have always managed to do, and, in my opinion, did successfully, was to get you guys talking. However, not just talking but talking in the true spirit of how I, as a long-term reader only, saw your discussion boardÃ¢??s past . talking with some Ã¢??passionÃ¢?? and just a little bit of Bangkok nasty injected in also. It was never about Ã¢??trollingÃ¢??. To troll is, again in my opinion, is an attempt to break a board Ã¢?? to make it fail. I attempted a shake up because I have always liked the true spirit of this board and what KS had hoped to achieve by dedicating so much of this time to. What the board represented, a group of guys unhappy and unsatisfied with life in Farangland and unable to accept a nice tin of John West Salomon on a Sunday afternoon for a weekly treat much prefer to blow their muck into a young nymph that across the pages of readers wives. I preferred how the board was before when it wasnÃ¢??t so tried, so slippers and cigar that it is today. An old boys network where very little of interest is presented. ItÃ¢??s becoming a dull chat room for a bunch of mates. You may remember that my main focus was the nightlife section, at least that was my planned starting point before moving to other sections. Prior to my arrival it was becoming, hell Ã¢?Â¦it had becomeÃ¢?Â¦ tired, dusty and well, wholly uninteresting. Threads on the smoking ban, the price of a lager, a bars refurbishment, blah blah bleedin blah. I wanted to change that Ã¢?? the will was definitely there in the form of some really interesting guys Ã¢?? to name but a few: http://www.thai360.com/fbb/showtopic.php?tid/527354/ http://www.thai360.com/fbb/showtopic.php?tid/529118/ http://www.thai360.com/fbb/showtopic.php?tid/529168/ http://www.thai360.com/fbb/showtopic.php?tid/529084/ http://www.thai360.com/fbb/showtopic.php?tid/521204/ with some great stories to tell and as importantly Ã¢?? information and advice to pass on to guys that had caught the same virus they had caught years before - Thailbone. I put up extreme threads in an attempt to have my fellow posting mongers kick off their slippers, put down their pipes and to go into their gardens with a virtual spade and dig up their long since buried nasty. Again, in my opinion, it worked. I think the nightlife section took on some life, became somewhere to read with enthusiasm whether you hated me or liked me, threads took on a large number of hits and threads grew and grew. http://www.thai360.com/fbb/showtopic.php?tid/525216/ (personal favourite) http://www.thai360.com/fbb/showtopic.php?tid/525635/ http://www.thai360.com/fbb/showtopic.php?tid/528838/ http://www.thai360.com/fbb/showtopic.php?tid/528829 http://www.thai360.com/fbb/showtopic.php?tid/528393/ http://www.thai360.com/fbb/showtopic.php?tid/529022/ http://www.thai360.com/fbb/showtopic.php?tid/528156/ And in true democratic spirit, when LookieLookie (a watcher not a doer) put up his poll on Ã¢??Frede be bannedÃ¢??, Ã‚Â½ the board voted each way. And the votes for Ã¢??NoÃ¢?? were from the players who remembered the board how it was or from the players who understood what it meant to fuck twins, to line up 13 holes and jump in tongue first and to know that a good sloppy facial was worth a silver back Ã¯Â?. Or so all the PMs in my inbox indicated. Do I cum in hand bangs, http://www.thai360.com/fbb/showtopic.php?tid/528370/ Do I or stop fucking a bargirl when I identify a case of Ebola Minge and throat fuck her till she vomits, before paying her a purple instead of a silver back? http://www.thai360.com/fbb/showtopic.php?tid/526838/ Of course I donÃ¢??t Gentlemen (well not too often). But in order to find the middle ground between complete hedonism and slippers and cigar, one must be extreme. But nowadays, newbies are jumped on for posting the same stuff that, say, Cornithian can post http://www.thai360.com/fbb/showtopic.php?tid/526738/ and itÃ¢??s a shame because the board wonÃ¢??t grow. I failed in my one man war to inject in some life into the board, I failed in my attempt to piss off KS so much that he made some changes (I regret fucking with you, and for the record when me and the Mrs did meet you on two occasions, she didnÃ¢??t refer to you later as Ã Â¹?Ã Â¸ÂÃ Â¹?Ã Â¸Â«Ã Â¸?Ã Â¹?Ã Â¸Â²Ã Â¸?Ã Â¸Â·Ã Â¸?) Of course, I couldnÃ¢??t help myself from going for the jugular when some guys just took the arse at my attempt at raining some thai360 serious sanuk, but hey, guys I considered to be the reason why it had become so mai sanuk but thatÃ¢??s life. I hope the board does improve, though it wont until some new blood is encouraged to post, I failed, I hope changes are made. Anyways, there you have it. Hit the button KS.
