I never knew the man, so I won't pass comment on the man..., however, many was the time I enjoyed his weekly column (infotainment)..., I also, especially enjoyed Steve Grosse's writing.

I wrote to him at the time if it was a money issue, he should consider charging.  Maybe have 5-10 free articles a year and for the fans, even if it's just 5-10 dollars a year, it would have been a nice earner for him.  IIRC, at one point he had 300,000 site visits a month, and in spite of the snark he gets here from some, a loyal following.  It would have also freed him up to cover more general content.  The bar section of his column I just passed over -- booooring.  I did enjoy many of his opening pieces, as well as his selection of weekly letters.   

 

In any case, he answered at the time that his decision to discontinue the site was not about money.  

Nah, Trink tried that and it didn't work. People love free stuff.

 

I didn't read his stuff much, but I liked that it was available if I wanted to.

Stickman was a goldmine of information in the earlier days of the internet. I do miss his writing about Bangkok but there's a lot more of information available now on You Tube and Thai Visa.

Just found out about his reappearance from a link on another site. Thoroughly enjoyed his weekly columns and some of the reader submissions. Certainly kept me going during the cold winters back home. His recent Pattaya piece was fresh and lively, and I thought it was fairly balanced and informative. It was a pleasure to read him again. Felt a bit like old times.

If you wish to discuss him no problem, but please do not quote him or link to him in any way.(his request).

 

Thank you.

The guy had 1000 positive information and I think helped a lot of people.

Who cares about his thoughts on your reference? ?

So you take advice from someone that has never lived in Thailand, about every day life in Thailand? 🤔

Are you kidding me? Stick lived in Bangkok for more than 15 years, spoke Thai at a very good level, and was married to a Thai lady.

Use to read himyears ago but got turned off with all the complaining and whining about how great it would be back in New Zealand. I guess he found out how great it would be and now is back writing about Thailand.
