45@philmeow - not wanting to get into an arguement here, but what Krest has posted is an actual reply. So it is the reply really that is 'taking it a bit far' dont you think. At the end of the day, if anyone really likes being on their own, or not sharing any information at all then why come on here??? is it for the experienced traveller just to brag about what they have done? I hope not! anyway, i said what i needed and i shall not feel ashamed about asking for a bit of help. We are social creatures after all (or meant to be). Have a nice day....x

As for your last sentence, I know your comments are not directed at me. No offence taken about that.

49Well to me being an £$%hole is a trait, a descriptive word that points to the person being an %$hole. I'm truly sorry if you have taken offence to me referring to an unkind and rude person as one but to me it is the correct description.
It's a shame you can't bring yourself to be more judgemental on that instead of just hanging on to one word that you have decided is unacceptable when only used in the defence of the ridiculed. Anyway, the same as Emarisa, I also dont want to get into an argument so lets leave it at this. In reply to 43, no I dont think it is taking it a bit far. The comments were cruel and mocking in nature. Don't you think they were taking it a bit far? Your opinion which you seem to enjoy giving freely is quite lacking from not only my but also Emarisa's replies on these comments.

50Ah come on guys... this post should have been titled "My FAVOURITE questions on this branch"...
We all know these are the questions you really want. Be honest, most of you are not here to actually help people out or give any useful or meaningful advice. It's all about being a part of this online community of self appointed "experts" on travel in thailand, whose favourite activity is to circle around waiting for the next newbie to stray unsuspecting onto the site and ask some naive question so you can pounce on them for not asking their question the right way and thereby demonstrate your familiarity with travelling in thailand and the culture of this forum.
You want these questions. You want someone to ridicule, to mock, to belittle and undermine. The more stupid the question the better because they make you feel good about yourself. They make you feel smart and superior and knowledgeable.
It's just a classic way in which people who are familiar with a particular situation - rather than using that familiarity in a generous way, and having some understanding of what it's like not to have that familiarity - use it to make themselves feel superior by putting other people down.
And every so often, when you haven't had enough of these questions lately, someone goes and makes a post like this so you can all relive your favourite moments, like a highlights package, where you all sit around and slap each other on the back and reinforce your membership of the "experts" club by making your own contribution on how to ridicule the unsuspecting.
