    US holiday camps teach kids to become YouTube stars 12:12, May 25 2019 https://www.stuff.co.nz/entertainment/113001586/us-holiday-camps-teach-kids-to-become-youtube-stars Parents should be teaching their kids how to do real work instead of taking advantage of them and exploiting their skills for the dollars utude will pump into their (parents) bank accounts .... and billions into utudes bank accounts!
  3. A small Correction to the above It should be illegal to use a cellphone to TALK* and or TxT while walking on any footpath/walkway/walking/tramping track within New Zealand! * Emergency calls excluded.
  4. Here is something thats being bugging me for quite some time now. It is against the law to use your cellphone while driving on our roads. It is not illegal to use your cellphone while riding an e scooter on the footpath It is not illegal to use your cellphone while riding bicycles on our roads It should be illegal to use a cellphone to txt while walking on any footpath/walkway/walking/tramping track within New Zealand!
  5. I hear on the radio talk-back the other day something about there now being 3 or 4 competitor e scooter companies operating on numerous footpaths in various locations within New Zealand. Soon our footpaths will become congested with e scooters, foot traffic, kids riding bikes/e bikes, and mobility vehicles! Maybe ALL e scooters should only be ridden on the dedicated cycle lanes, and banned from our footpaths! It be much safer for us who use the footpaths to walk on, kids to ride their bikes on, grandfather and/or grandmother to drive their mobility scooters on ....

    accforum.org database error

    I just checked and the error page is still there. I won't shed any tears if that nasty forum never returns! Hopefully all past and the last very few remaining members will pop-up here in this forum.
  7. ACC spent six months and $17,000 fighting a Wellington stroke victim's claim https://www.stuff.co.nz/national/health/111866009/acc-spent-nine-months-and-18000-fighting-a-wellington-stroke-victims-claim In some cases ACC have spent much much more fighting injury claims! And lets not forget that the money they spend fighting injury claims comes out of the ACC Levy Payers Fund account! Your money!

    Totally Off Topic

    This is totally off topic Married at first sight ozzie What I can see happening is some of the newly weds/participates are seeing ahead to the days after they leave the show and start selling their stories to the media! Getting on the show, for some, is the first step to much future monetary fortune https://www.stuff.co.nz/entertainment/tv-radio/111297384/married-at-first-sight-boss-says-cheating-in-the-2019-season-has-gone-too-far

    Why we are here

    I reproduced what you wrote on that other forum mate because what you wrote was bang on the mark! People wanting to help themselves try and get fair go from ACC are wasting their time at accforum,org because there is hardly anyone to help. That butler person still gives me the creeps but for tomas I'm over his same old same old dribble. I'm hoping magnacarter and others like mini, ntv, hukildaspida, huggy, fairgo, anon and others etc come over here. That old team at accforum.org were the best! I hope they all join here and this place start annoying the sheat out of acc
  11. https://www.stuff.co.nz/national/health/108759109/acc-spying-its-nothing-less-than-warfare Yeah right! ACC is represented by lawyers at MOST of the review and appeal hearings. If they are busy they use the telephone - speaker phone ACC made 802,099 payments totaling $131m for medical assessments Some of ACC's toadies must be doing very well, extremely well!

    Why we are here

    I grabbed the following words from accforum org because it would be hard to beat! It's factual! I found the part I've quoted within a post published by "Brucey" in accforum org's members only forum/section and thought the message deserved to be seen by more than just 2 or 3 members that still visit and login to that once thriving forum! I'm grateful this site is here for us and can see this new accforum.nz evolving into being that rose thorn in ACC's arse that accforum org once was!

    Lime Scooters

    Don't forget that here in NZ we can't sue anyone for causing injury We apparently gave up the right to sue way back when Rob was in control. In return he gave us the ACC - a fairer system to the injured party - yeah right! 3 Billion is it? ACC have an estimated three (3) Billion NZ Dollars in their bank account! Levy Payers money that should be used to rehabilitate injured people to same level prior to injury Its not happening! There are still hundreds and hundreds (1000's to be honest) of genuinely injured individuals in NZ that end up being assisted by WINZ when ACC declines claim or interferes with assessment process to exit claimant from their rightful entitlements way before client actually medically fit and no longer requires help from acc! ACC merely transfers their obligations to winz. ACC is funded by a Compulsory ACC Levy on just about everything in NZ which nearly everyone pays in some way or another WINZ is funded by the NZ Tax Payer. The NZ Tax payer is helping the ACC get richer and richer Meanwhile WINZ is always asking the NZ Govt for money to help keep going We're actually paying to be compulsorily covered in two ways. eh
