"a properly organised and constituted nationwide Thailand expat organisation" and "have some credibility with the Thai authorities" are two entirely separate things.  The only places on Earth that have organised immigrant groups that have clout with the national government are (as far as I'm aware) places where immigrants are (a) permanent and (b) have the vote.  We are temporary guests, here a year at a time, and will never have the vote - not even those of us married to Thai citizens.

It's one of the things I like about Buddhism (in theory) - a keen sense of not knocking your head against a brick wall

They may well like this idea at booting out time and could be cost effective expunging by the plane load 🤔

Sorry Gentleman, this topic has to close.
