Auntie Maria...could this be the reason??

Dear All,

First of all thank you so much for:

1. reading my slightly unusual JBR and

2. the incredible support received from so many of you when it was removed

3. and those of you who even started new threads to raise awareness of what had happened

Through very kind contributors (Cathy&Gary), who chased the matter, TA has sent the following reply:

xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

We are not permitted to publish any content in our forums that is published elsewhere, so the topic had to be deleted. The member who posted would be welcome to start a new topic and link to that other site rather than copy and paste its text.

xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

Therefore, not to contravene the rules I am just copying just the link to comply with the advice outlined above

milepoint.com/forums/…

To view the photos in full size, you will need to register but it is free.

Mille Grazie a Tutti Voi

No Georgio, the reason your thread was removed was because at least two TA members wrongly reported your post as inappropriate.

There are countless threads where part of an article is copied and pasted with a link to the full article, so that excuse doesn't wash with me.

Cheers.

Poor Auntie, she does deserve a break after being locked up by TA!

Once again, thank you all.

Auntie Maria has been so intrigued by those tales that she is considering purchasing a ticket to Thailand to see for herself what all the fuss is about. I have, of course, made her aware that she can post questions on TA's Bangkok forum and she can rely on prompt advice.

Best

Well!

I am confused, why in the world would TA remove your post.

Have I missed something.

You are a great poster!

Because there's at least 1 person on the Bangkok forum, who seems to enjoy getting threads deleted just for the sake of it.

When this sort of thing happens, it will stop some people from contributing in the future. Hope TA will identify this person(s) and do something about them, although I have very little confidence in that actually happening

What can I add to what has already been said?

Auntie Maria is well and she did enjoy the recent mail.

She is also chaffed to bits to have so many friends on TA.

Finally, she has asked me to email more details of my recent travels.

As a dutiful nephew, I have taken the matter under consideration and I have been sharpening my pencil and put a bottle of Soave in the fridge to chill. Not that I need much vino bianco for inspiration. I just have to look at the photos and wish I can go back again soon or even sooner.

As Tolstoy once famously said "If you want to be happy, be"

Wishing you all much love and light.
