Here are some of post title listed in that forum. Most of them are question-based posts. I translated only the one that would make sense to outsiders:
- I want to know a price of the tank.
One of the replies asked “first or second hand?”. Another one asked “Include air conditioning?”
- Can a tank has NGV engine?
- How a tank make a turn?
- I already asked the soldiers. They told me that there is no air conditioning in a tank.
- Do you want go out and take pictures of tanks with me?
- Is the lottery working tomorrow?
- This is the announcement of love revolution. Those who are in love, please be calm.
- Is this coup d’etat or tank show?
Most of the discussions were about how they get close to the tanks and talk with the soldiers. They said at the government house, it was just like a festival. This is reflective from Thai Internet users regarding the optimistic perspective and encouragement which may somewhat support the latest poll result from Suandusit Poll, one of the biggest poll agencies in the country.
The poll used an interviewing survey of 2,019 Thais (43% from Bangkok). About 84% agreed with the coup d’etat. About 75% believed the coup would solve the political turmoil. There are no significant differences of the opinions between Bangkokians and those who live outside Bangkok.
