So.. No more reporting TM30. Which our local IO insisted I do even for one night away from my permanent address? 

The TM30 report still has to be submitted same as before. Don't confuse the TM28 that most immigration offices didn't enforce earlier. This will change nothing.

I recall a large number of doom sayers who said that online petition was a waste of time and possibly could get you into trouble for signing . Those who were brave enough to start it and sign it can now laugh in your faces. 
 

well done Isaan lawyers and all who signed to get the attention and for something to change 

I don't agree. It has merely brought us back to where we were before. What would have been an advance would have been to relax/scrap the situation of the TM30.

A group of expats in Thailand even launched an online petition calling for the TM28 and TM30 to be abolished.

 

And while the petition failed to reach its target for sign ups, it undoubtedly helped to bring the issue to the attention of senior immigration officials in Thailand.  

So who can start an petition to stop the 90 Day reporting .:jap: All expats should sign that .

In the exceptions as I read it relatives do not have to be reported under TM30 ( section.    )

seems like an improvement to me.

Um, then why was I fined yesterday for not notifying within 24 hours? And told that whenever I go to any province longer than 24 hours I have to notify my address or I will be fined, again.

Go there again, explain, and ask your money back.

I live in Samui I will go to Bangkok a few day so my hotel will send the TM30 . When  I will return return home my owner will not have to warn immigration with a Tm30 I am back home?

Read the article. 

TM30 is still required if you own your property. 

Your landlord, if you rent will be required to report your return on a TM30

The posting says if you stay at a friend's house. What if you stay at a hotel?

This is confussing as I understand it the tm 28 was for changing address. the tm 30 is when you stay away from that address for 24 hours or more then return. 

So if you go stay in a hotel or go on holiday you still need to do the tm30 when you return nothing to do with the tm28
