UNMODERATED FORUMS for Townsville Australia & James Cook Uni

Dictionary Meanings of 'Shonks' and 'Shysters'. Shonks and shysters are FRAUDSTERS, plain and simple.
These are Australian colloquialisms. Might I say, firstly, that I use idioms and colloquial speech very seldom This is because I have studied a number of languages and had to translate between them. It is very difficult for me to understand colloquial expressions in foreign languages when I have translated them into English. Over my time I have often written and spoken in English to people who have English as a Second Language. I am better understood if I use no idioms or colloquialisms. The purpose of my speaking or writing is to be understood.

I quote from the Macquarie Dictionary, published by The Macquarie Library Pty Ltd., The Macquarie Dictionary, Macquarie University, New South Wales 2109, Australia. It is called, "The National Dictionary". It is referenced as the first "Australian Dictionary".

"Shonks" can be understood as the noun reference to persons who are "shonky". The Macquarie Dictionary gives the following:

'shonky' / adj. Colloq. 1. of dubious integrity or honesty. 2.mechanically unreliable.

'shyster' n. 1. one who gets along by petty, sharp practices. 2. a lawyer who uses unprofessional or questionable methods. [apparently alteration of Scheuster, an unscrupulous 19th C New York lawyer; perhaps influenced by G (for German) Scheisser, from scheissen SHIT]

The Colloquial phrase of "Shonks and Shysters" is known in Australia. If you do a Google search of "Shonks and Shysters" in Quotes, you will find the majority are related to my sites, but you will see a few others where this is an understood phrase, in Australia. It is also seen that the phrase has been used in the Australian Parliament, and is recorded in the official Hansard.

New UNMODERATED FORUMS for Townsville NQ, Australia & James Cook University

Townsville FORUMS:

Townsville, North Queensland, Australia..
James Cook University of North Queensland, Townsville, Australia
.

Below the TEXT and images, are the URLs/hyperlinks to the many aspects of this topic. CLICK on any image on this page to take you to that Website.


The Global Regions & Localities FORUMS Section of the NEWS & MEDIA FORUMS Image of HaigReport Website ie Image now has a section for Townsville, North Queensland, Australia.. Another of our Bulletin Boards Image has a section for James Cook University of North Queensland, Townsville, Australia.

I am pleased to say that our websites [ View list of WEBSITES and Bulletin Boards ] have phenomenal Google Yahoo et al rankings. Hence, you will find our sites including the new TOWNSVILLE FORUMS coming at or near the top of Internet searches.

Also, please do not be too concerned that the material you post could be viewed as too defamatory, by some people, especially those about whom it is the truth, as the claim of 'DEFAMATION' is the 'REFUGE of the ROGUE'. I know a little about the law. I have an LLB. You may remember me from my time in Townsville during the 1980's as the Accountant Principal of Image

Importantly, the servers on which the websites are resident are NOT in Australia, so they are not in the Australian legal jurisdiction - but still the corrupt Detective Superintendent Brian Hay, of the Queensland Police's 'Fraud and Corporate Crime Group' [police are major fraudsters] has engaged in protecting politically motivated corruption that has existed and grown in Australia for over 34 years and tried to 'take down' my websites - UNSUCCESSFULLY. Plus he had a second attempt to silence me via
Google

Writing an OPEN LETTER as a NEWTOPIC in one of our forums is as simple as writing an email. So, if you have a gripe with, say the Townsville City Council or with anyone else in Townsville or at JCU, I suggest you consider writing them an OPEN LETTER on these FORUMS. You can, if you wish, then send them an email advising them of the URL of your OPEN LETTER to them on our forums. However, I have found it better to not advise my target, as they will be told of it by someone else, by which time it will have been OnLine for longer and they will be more concerned. If I am writing a FORMAL COMMUNIQUE, to say a government department [of public sector parasites] I consider there is more value to my writing if more people have an opportunity to read it. Hence, I publish it. I advise them by email of the URL. That is then like am attachment to an email. Email is a perfectly legal method of communication with government. The Internet is the NEW FRONTIER.
