I am from Thailand.  I know people who revere him and people who revile  him.  He seems like such a gentle man and well respected.  My mother has pictures of him and the queen all over her house, so I grew up seeing him as a god-like figure.

Wear, thanks for starting this thread. Thumb up
I like this king from what I have read about him.He is very accomplished in many things.
About the censoring, I think its those in govt who revere him as a god who do not allow any criticism of the King.
He is quoted as saying:

Quote
Bhumibol himself stated that he was not above criticism in his 2005 birthday speech. "Actually, I must also be criticised. I am not afraid if the criticism concerns what I do wrong, because then I know. Because if you say the king cannot be criticised, it means that the king is not human," he said. Despite this, few have dared to call for the repeal of the law.

I also remember  reading something about biographies being banned.The link above gives the reason.


BTW,gpanr5 was it him or the Thai govt that was against the movie Anna & the King?
Wasnt there also a controversy about a biography of one of his daughters?

about the video on youtube --- i think it is not more on the king asking for it tobe blocked, but because the Thai people have deep respect for him. he truly is the symbol of unity among the Thais.

Oh, I don't know anything about that.  All I know about his daughters is that they are just as respected as he is.  There are three daughters and only one got married and last I read she is living in the US.  The other two seem to have devoted their lives to Thailand.

No, don't know her name but I was very suprised to learn that he has a son with another wife.  Guess I should ask my mom if he divorced the first one or something else happened.
