    That post made me laugh, especially the bit about how my attitude to your posts is like assuming black people are criminals. I think you need to bring in Hitler as well somehow.

    Meanwhile there are people starving, dying, committing suicide but you keep stressing over a thread being closed on an expat site in Hong Kong.
    Its not the "problem", its "principle". We have different principles. You assume just because someone said X in the past, he will forever be discredited. But I take a different approach. Its not what someone IS, but what someone SAY now that matters. I'm just dealing with facts. That's my principle always. Black criminal makes the perfect metaphor. Stressing over a thread? I'm just tired of the mod not doing jack about trolls.

    Yes and the last 100 or more times you have raised the same issue it was just about that case.

    If you walk down the street and someone walks into you it is their fault. If every day for ten years you walk down the street and someone walks into you then perhaps you are the problem.

    In this case you have a point BUT you have complained about the last 100 or more cases. I have one simple point that I have repeatedly said to you but you refuse to consider. Look at your own behaviour and see what you can change to try and solve the problem. It will not go away until either you change or you are banned again.

    THIS

    Reading OP's posts brings back memories of birthday parties (pre-covid). Listening to my 9 years old nephew, all the time asking "why,why,why?" and then he starts to sulk because the grown-ups in the room tell him to play with his Lego for a bit while they are having a meaningful conversation.

I mean its pretty rich when a troll on this thread accuse me of a lack of original thought when I probably have made 10 times more originally post and ideas on this forum than he ever will. Yet the mod never seems to see that. He just blames me when its the troll's fault.
    In mind, I hear an eight-year-old when I read this.

    ***Edit*** I just saw Edwardstorm's similar observation. Glad it wasn't just me thinking this.

    I wouldn't be asking if things are done more fairly...now would it?

    Well, the problem is not with me but the policing of trolls by the mod. Hey if the mod just deal with trolls, we wouldn't be having this conversation. So just deal with that.

    The solution is simple, get rid of the trolls by the mod. But apparently he refuses to do it, so here we are.

    Of course, anyone you disagree with sounds like an 8 year old right?

    Nope. Not at all. I don't disagree or agree with you. You just come across as a whiny kid, simple as that.

    "Why, why, why?"

    And you come across as ignorant to what's going in geoexpat. There wouldn't be "why" if it weren't for the mod ignoring the trolls and the usual suspects on here. I'm not going to change. So just deal with it. The solution as I said is simple, make the mod get rid of the trolls. But he refuses. So why does he refuse to get rid of the trolls? That should be the question you are asking.

    It is still everybody else's fault, absolutely nothing to do with you. I am trying to be constructive, really I am. It is frustrating because it would be easy to fix but for years you have refused to do anything.

    Answer me this simple question. Why do you think it is always you that seems to have this problem?
