Everyone starts somewhere. Is this an open forum ??

I posted under anonymous a couple of times on Stickman but found it and him a waste of time. Just warning others what shit he comes out with. I prefer to see Thailand for myself instead of people like you reading instead of doing.

Hey well let me know when you start contributing something then based on all your "doings" mate.

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.  

If it not about money, why he have the site for sale then, i think more than 2 years at some ridiculous price?

 

Instead of making it a realistic price in the first place,

he then settled for some deal that he then had to quit his part a few months later because the $ wasnt worth the time he must to put into it? 

 

If creative he could have done many thing like:

- reasearch how to monetise better.

- pay someone to help monetise. 

- pay for help to update because he was unmotivated and lazy to do himself.

 

-Even if have a "save Stick" drive, ask every fan maybe donate a one-off $5

 

i for one would have donate a lazy $20 to keep him going.

 

he could have picked up xx? thousand operating money in no time.

 

but i think he wanted to do very little and just flog a very tired old format for as much as he could get

 

remind me a bit like Thai style greed actually!

I don't have any intention of revealing what I am doing. I am calling someone on their bullshit (that runs a site) that supposedly is credible. He is not.  Why are you upset. Do you believe in sugar and spice and all things nice.

Topic on f**king boring Stickman is now closed.

Upset? Au contraire, you are the one that seems a bit irritated at a guy who everyone knows has lived in Thailand and provided valuable information to some folks. Why does that bother you?

i never bothered with stickman,

but there was a talented writer who started a site called "mangosauce",

frickin awesome

Stick went off the boil decades ago. The best site was The Big Mango linked to a bar of the same name. Sadly no more but exists as Mango Unchained.

used to read occasionally until he started condoning and promoting the sex industry full time. i'm sure there's an audience for this lowest common denominator content but not being a sex-pat or sex tourist or remotely interested in the bar scene there's nothing there for me.

 

it is a pity because there is so much more to thailand than the sex industry and the sad folks partaking.

Yes there is plenty more to Thailand..and it is covered in regular guide books. Adult night life is not sufficiently covered.  Stickman originally filled the vacum left by Bernard Trink 'The Nite Owl' in The Bangkok World , a column that specifically dealt with night life and girls.

Seems to be an awful lot of 'things ain't like they used to be' on these blogs. More complaining than good times had.....

 

And so what about Stick Boy: https://www.stickboybkk.com/

 

Is this a Stickman offshoot? 

I think it is more a comment about size difference between boy stick and man stick.

Blimey - I'm over this thread. As far a I'm concerned, choose your own Stick but don't involve mwa. Bye now. Bye CharlieH. I'm a reformed bad boy :)))

Missing stickman ?? Geez - Bloody joking - He's trying desperately to make a comeback. So much for the bullshit about selling his site. Now folks - why would anyone want to buy a useless site like his anyway. He also has been publishing a lot of ladyboy, gay shit for quite a while. Is anyone thinking what I am thinking about him ?? You betya. Tip don't believe ANYTHING he writes. All crap. Been around sheep too long.

If you miss the site, it's back in general operation again with his weekly column

and continued publishing of the readers submissions. The site was sold but he returned as a paid contributor to the daily/weekly operations of the site.

If you've been to the site you can pretty much decipher what you may have read here that is BS

otherwise known as verbal feces.

Don't understand the logic of hating Ladyboys when that means the guys who come to see Ladyboys  are not competing with me by bar-fining the bargirls that I come to see .  At my age that raises my odds in a good way.

  He  wrote a few recent columns containing the insights and perspectives gained from his new partner aka "The Missus"  about what a lot of Thai women are doing while we sleep at the wheel and how they even have a private facebook page that rats out guys who are cheating..........Stickmans' site is not for everybody and maybe a little conservative since he does not promote a  live fast die hard " F"  em all agenda............It's not Pulitzer, but a decent read and it keeps me in touch with the town when I'm out of town.

Bangkok nightlife has never been good... Not even really in the early 90s when I first started going there. If you think Bangkok nightlife is good and the girls are hot, you need to get out more... I mean OUT OF Thailand... There are many other countries with much lower costs of living and a less oppressive climate with less pollution where there are much more beautiful girls (not plain-Jane Thais without any discernible chest and buttocks) which aren't covered in tattoos and have a much better attitude than Thais, not simply after your money. These countries are not in southeast Asia. Figure out for yourself where I mean. If you want girls without buttocks/breasts who will rip you off for your last cent, stay in Thailand. If not, look elsewhere for curvaceous girls with a good attitude.

I think you miss the point of Thailand.  It's grocery stores.  Thailand has the best grocery stores in the world.  Name me one other country where one needs to take a dozen condoms when you go grocery shopping? 

 

Dummies are dummies anywhere.  If you get ripped off in Thailand you will get ripped off anywhere. 

 

I don't have any phobias and don't need large women to make up for any childhood problems so Thai women are just the right size for me.  An added plus is Thai women bath 3 times as frequently as most other nationalities.  I realize Napoleon did not like women who bath but I do.  

 

I don't think the current Stick is the same one as I read 10 years ago.  Says he is but sounds different to me.

Figure it out for nothing because your post is false.

Tell us where it is so much better? Until then your post just typical blah blah meaningless bad mouthing.
