  1. A strong deterrent would be a civil action for damages. Those involved would have to sell all current assets and maybe have future liabilities too.
  2. Of course. Same as many other types of business in Funtown,where dirty money is washed and recycled.
  3. Good one MGDN! I've been watching the hurricane on MSNBC and they have been overplaying the drama too,shouting their pieces to camera and standing in two inches of water but dressed in storm clothing. Must be in their contracts to used the phrase "hunkered down" in every third sentence.
  4. Same in 1992 when I first dropped in. Back then though,local prices were exceptionally cheap so good value to be had everywhere. That's no longer the case.
  5. I had some luggage go missing recently. The on-site officials wouldn't allow me do describe the colour as orange in the missing bag report (which was correct) so I had to declare that it was yellow..... Seems extraordinary that there are so few official colours allowed to describe missing bags! It was delivered to my house in the UK a week later,around midnight. No idea where it was for the missing days.
  6. Is this the food court at basement level,or is there another one? I assume there is one on an upper level,hence the word 'loft'?
  7. I'm still laughing.....a few hours after seeing the clip.....
  8. An explanation of what you want to achieve would be useful! I might have a crack at it if it is interesting and not too intricate.

    Tragic

    I thought I clicked a green "like" but instead hit the red button,so erasing the "like" and reducing the count to zero when it should be +2. Sorry A2!
  10. That probably leaves one sign which is legal.....
  11. Well,the authorities stopped the deckchair mafia taking over the beach entirely,finally stopped illegal construction at The waterfront,demolished a few hotels that had abused planning laws,cut out the smoking of shisha,cleared Walking Street of mobile vendors in the early hours,enforced scrutiny of documentation at hotels,stopped the widespread Soi 6 regulation avoidance,clamped down on the zero-dollar Chinese tour mafia,got the motocy guys to play ball,display fares and get licensed,stopped the littering and flyposting in telephone kiosks and on street furniture,clamped down on the Cambodian beggars,rounded up a few International villains,closed down loads of Thai pubs for drug infractions and underage patrons,kicked out the corrupt City Hall governance and replaced it wholesale,terrified go-go security into compliance instead of brutality,closed down previously invincible go-go bars for license irregularities,enforced opening hours,now regulating massage employees,hanging the Sword of Damocles over the seaside of Walking Street,stopped the open sale of many previously available pharmacutical products,looking into unlicensed hotels and guest houses,huge crackdown on drink driving abuse.....and probably plenty of other things that have been cracked down on. They are getting there,one step at a time...
  12. I remember that too....a number of signs being either taken down or relocated at a higher level.....Angelwitch and Crazy House are two I recall being re-sited. I think this is more about planning permission...that some WS business owners have fixed their signage without any official approval or have violated the terms of the size and type and location of the sign allowed. As with other recent events,the powers are showing that WS go-go bar owners don't have free reign to do whatever they like without any consequences. Times are changing.
  13. Just seen this in the Bangkok Post. The campaign to get more compliance to the law continues,one step at a time. The wild west behaviour is being cracked down upon.....maybe. Attaching a couple of screen shots because the BP has weird software at work which interferes with a normal copy'n'paste operation.

    Bite Me!

    I passed by again today,and all the menu boards were upright and the lights were on....but not a customer to be seen! You are probably correct about the signwriter. Here is todays' board......

    Bite Me!
