Pailin Kiangkwa, at center, says she could not have written allegedly defamatory messages online because she has been blind for eight years.

KRABI — A woman who reportedly went blind eight years ago has been charged with defamation in Krabi province for allegedly writing insults against another Facebooker.

Pailin Kiangkwa, 26, said she was surprised to learn about the charge because her blindness prevents her from having a Facebook account in the first place.

The plaintiff, 34-year-old Chanadda Saroj, accused Pailin of mocking her possession of a child spirit doll called luk thep back in October on Facebook, according to a police report.

I guess in a year or two, once the Luk Theps have been given full human rights, folks no longer think it's weird to sue someone for leaving a doll to a hot car without supervision.

Well, at least the news are entertaining, if nothing else.

And yes, I noted that this case is a person agains another.

Channada deserves mocking. To any degree. By anybody. These dolls are miles, and miles beyond ridiculous, and anyone using them is a fool and a goon. Ancient superstition that has no place in the 21st century. I could sort of see someone using dolls like these in the 22nd century BC. Before scientific treatises were available, and the internet. But today? What tomfoolery. Anyone using them deserves utter, and complete mockery beyond description. To even consider the possibility that a soul resides within one of these dolls? To feed them, clothe them, bring them to restaurants? Unbelievable nonsense.

I thought selfie stick were the most ridiculous invention of the past few years. Now, we have one that blows away the selfie stick, in terms of self absorption, and an utter waste of one's precious life, time and resources. Find a charity to devote your time and effort to. But, a doll? Come on people. Get it together.

From the linked news article in the OP:

She was later released on bail. Her bond was set at 50,000 baht

It amazes me that in Thailand

  1. anybody can make a baseless accusation against another person,
  2. without incentivation from the part of the accused -- and/or perhaps with incentivation from the part of the accuser -- the police passes the report on to the the public prosecutor without any preliminary investigation,
  3. the prosecutor in turn sends it to the judge,
  4. and the judge sets bail, often a ludicrously high amount by comparison with the accused's income and assets, even though there is not the slightest perceived risk that the accused would flee

Well, this is what I think about any religion. Wether it's Christianity or being a vegan.

People seem to have the need of believing that something will make their life better. It's basically playing lottery in real life.

In it's own small and pathetic way, this incident illustrates much that is wrong with the Thai mentality.

Obsessed with the minutiae of face-saving, the infinitely more important matters are conveniently overlooked..............

The country needs more plastic kids for plastic people. With an rapidly aging population there will come a time when there is none here anymore to question the junta about democracy and elections. Problem solved.

It is perhaps one of the most cowardly aspects of Thai life. The very fact that those laws exist, is proof as to how adamant certain segments of society are, about denying the lower nature of some of it's members. Deny, obfuscate, do not own up, don't be a man, and deflect. Whatever you do, never look within for the source of any problem. Just deflect. It was not me. You cannot be talking about me. What you are saying is false. I am not man or woman enough to deal with criticism, so I will sue you. I did not do a terrible job. My product is not poorly built. My service that I provided was not bad, like you say. It is you who are bad for saying so.

What a cowards game. Only a half man or an undeveloped woman behaves in this shameful manner. How is personal growth, and development as a better human being possible, when one cannot, and will not take, or accept blame for anything in life? That kind of behavior is the polar opposite of Buddhism, or any spiritual practice, for that matter. Look within for the source of the problem. Deflection is the work of a coward, and a worm. Not an adult.

And in case you needed it, it is absolute empirical proof as to how completely broken the Thai judicial system is. Just the fact that a judge will even review a case like this is an embarrassment to the nation.

Quite poor examples considering that the basics of Christianity are concerned with making other peoples lives better and that the majority of Vegans are concerned with making animals lives better which both obviously achievable goals and with no resemblance of a lottery whatsoever.

Dig a bit deeper and you'll see how the religions, any kind, are generally selfish behaviour, trying to boos ones ego/life in general. Works well as an excuse to the question "Why I'm not as good as I'm supposed to be. I must be weak."

For me all is good as long as these superstitions don't try to affect the real world, where the rest of us are living. This is what is happening in this case and the cases of other religions every now and then.

I'm afraid it is you who has not dug deep, you merely state childish stereotypes, which although are themes present within religions, are also not all that is occurring. For instance, Christians in the UK have been feeding people via food banks, over 600 of them run by Christian groups feeding over 1 million people. You don't want these people to "try to affect the real world", so basically you would deny poor people food. Similarly with Veganism, you deny animals emancipation from exploitation seemingly solely because you fear that their emancipators have big egos. Your attempt to paint religion as being self centered is actually rather ironic.
