Internet activity that is deemed harmful to the country could land a poster in jail for five years and face a fine of 100,000 baht. 


Defamation warranted 2 years and 200K in fines. 


Even defaming the dead in Thailand is a no-no - that can be worth 3 months and 5,000 baht. 


They even mentioned Article 112 - this relates to the country's lese majeste laws. 


The story didn't mention the penalties for that but it is known that 15 years awaits those that transgress in this area.
