Trim the dead wood

Re: "The forms of inconvenience", (Editorial, Aug 11).

Yes, TM 6 cards are time consuming and as the editorial suggested, computer technology should be able to fill the gap. How are the TM 6 forms supposed to help with "marketing surveys"? Explanation please.

Another useless procedure that should be eliminated is the 90-day registration for all those in the kingdom over 90 days. It has been obvious for years that those wishing to disappear here can do so quite easily, although they might eventually be caught. There are many American Vietnam war veterans living "somewhere" in Thailand, quietly and anonymously, their whereabouts are known only to a few close to them. And they are smarter than those immigration officials who try to pursue and locate them.
