Some factors that influence pricing and regional market trends.
Islam is the fastest growing religion in Thailand and might account for the rise in fish demand.
Islamic terrorists kill more Buddhists in Southern Thailand might account for the drop in fish demand.

So Gary has a whinge that big meanies are asking for actual evidence and objecting to his increasingly paternalistic yet increasingly incoherent ranting. Somehow I don't think Spearthrower or anyone else will be too concerned.

Gary has a "theory" too donchaknow. His is a unified theory of absolutely everything. Much greater vision than you has Gary, instead of "unifying" evolution he renders it obsolete in one fell swoop.

Much like you though he can't explain what his conjectures actually entail or provide any actual evidence for them either.

Your unificating "theory" doesn't even rate amongst other crackpot "theories". How sad. :dance:

If you haven't noticed my Unified Theory is posted under Education on The Skeptics Society Forum. Here it was moved several times because the forum does not have a category for Education.

:rofl:

Yeah, that's exactly why it was moved. The category into which it eventually ended up is the closest thing we have to a "Moronic Bollocks" category, so there it sits.

There is no consistency in categorizing topics on Skeptic forums. The fact that you searched for this thread even after it was moved suggests a voluntary self fulfilling need to be counted.

Time to call you out on this Justin.

Why do you keep posting about Thailand?

Is it because I am in Thailand?

Do you think that making snide comments about Thailand is going to achieve something?

Did you ever stop to once consider your actions as being a childish lashing out at someone because you can't address their arguments?

Did you ever even consider for a moment that someone living in Thailand isn't necessarily from Thailand, and has no emotional connection to anonymous idiocy on the internet bashing entire countries because of repeated failures in a discussion thread?

Seriously, are you going to keep doing this?

Or he could've just noticed that it was there as he looked in the relevant forum.

Thanks. I must have missed it because I did not see subjects of university level interest. Maybe I did not adequately research this site.
I finally found one topic there on education `

Teachers - Students - Parents - Tutors

You wrote: Finally, western teachers here are all too often actually unqualified sex-tourists that wanted to find a way to stay, so they took up teaching. I jest ye not.

One can assume from this that you are against western teachers in your country.

I don't see how that's a problem.

One can assume all manner of things that are wrong. It depends on what one is hoping to achieve.

Incidentally, you might want to try posting the link you're citing from: wouldn't want people to complain about cherrypicking, would we?

GENERAL MODNOTE
@justintime , this post in which you continue comments similar to ones you were sanctioned for recently, may not only be considered off topic, but may constitute trolling against another member as well. Given that you are already on 3 active warnings and looking at a 1 month minimum suspension for any further warnings, I'm strongly suggesting that you cease derailing this or any other threads to make derogatory comments about a particular country and by association, any member who happens to reside in a particular country, as you've previously done with Thailand and Spearthrower. Consider this a line in the sand beyond which a firmer hand will be used if you persist.

Edit : I didn't specify this earlier, but I'll ask members not to derail this thread with discussion/debate about moderation. PM me if you wish to continue discussing moderation issues. I have removed 2 off topic posts.
