For those of you who are wondering about the details that caused Mr. Hippo to have to go to court today here is the explanation:
http://www.ajarnforum.net/vb/the-sta...ml#post1191666 (Fake Degrees)
Follow the three Rís: Respect for self Respect for others and Responsibility for all your actions.
Employers however, are restricted from adding any info about past employment beyond verifying dates of employment.
I too am glad Hippo is not spending an extended time behind Thai bars. Only the worst of the worst deserve that hell. I just hope Hippo wasn't one of those telling Grassy (RIP) that he deserved everything he got for his drug offence.
Why? Did he?

Well, our hippo isnt a piss taker like that, is he. He would never have said anything like that to Grassy, would he.
So what was the name of the Judge then, 'you lucky, lucky, lucky bastard', Hippo, who didnt decide to deport your arse back West but gave you a 6 montb suspended sentence.
Now - about those 60 and all you lot who have been working on fake degrees for the last 7-8 years.................
I don't get this thread. I must be missing a lot on this forum and I try and log in every day.... I really do try.....
I retired a few years ago and my only 'work' now is riding my bike!

Glad to hear you came out of it all OK Hippo.
The writing has been on the wall for some time regarding fake documents. The Thais just haven't been enacting laws they laid down back in 2003 governing work permits and teacher's licenses. Thai bureaucracy moves slowly but they are thorough. Those with fake degrees should consider enrolling for real degrees so they can prove good intentions when the hammer falls.
Faith, by itself, isn't a good enough reason to believe. Instead, a belief must be defensible through reason, logic, and evidence.
The idea that faith is somehow justified by the fact that the beliefs cannot be proven is a truly Orwellian position to adopt - not to mention intellectually and ethically dangerous.
Daniel Bedingfield claimed that his new album is what it would sound like if Sting, Stevie Wonder and Micheal Jackson were in a basement together - I haven't got the album so I'll have to imagine the sound of a blind bloke and a Geordie kicking the shit out of a pedophile.
^ a bit like Muslim Scholar
Great to see you had a decent result Hippo.May your glass be ever full.
It might well be a good idea if the opening comments from Hippo concerning the checking of fake degrees were pinned as a warning to the K.S.R. University graduates.
