So give us a country that is devoid of scams ? Give us an example of something erroneous about Thailand that is not found in every other country on the planet ? Perhaps a crime that is exclusive to Thailand ? Anything ? Knowing that you can't at least accept you are consistent in talking utter tripe !
From what I can gather, the opposite of a 'thai apologist' is a pant wetter - those folks who when confronted with the slightest of curve balls that life throws at them, rather than man up and deal with it like normal grown ups, whinge, cry and complain to anyone stupid enough to listen about how unfair life is and how the whole world is against the poor little lambs ! The forums are full of them!
That is almost certainly true, but that's what I would expect to find in a variant that's been around for about 40 years. Especially if it is the most produced plane in it's class. How long how many Max versions were in service before it was grounded? The real figure that helps with this is "per capita".
