I'll need to take you through this one step at a time for bali-balinese girl. It seams I've upset bali-balinese & she has every right to be, & every right to defend her country. 1)
As for you, your family or anyone I have not meet, I can not comment about and that includes people from Amed.2)
I'm sure almost every person in the whole world knows there are "blacksheeps" in every country. So stating the obvious is asinine in this case. Asking me to travel or read more to experience this is a week attempt to justify or lessen your people's role in ripping off visitors. Drawing attention to other countries problems does not make you right and is what we call passing the blame. We are talking about Indonesia. 3)
There is no need to attempt to inform me about the rules, joys or customs of bargaining. I've have lived in many countries, grown up and experienced it as a way of life. Your statement "Bargaining is a universal knowledge" is untrue but beside the point. Assuming my stupidity in bargaining, or bartering, dickering & haggling. I will answer your question. Yes I do know "this don't happen in Indonesia only".4)
My words about Thailand are "seamed much less interested in ripping me off & more interested in helping in any way they could. But this topic was for me to vent about most of the indonesia I saw."
Again you are passing the blame or pointing the finger. Nether of these make your country look better or excuse it for happening.5)
I'm "too sp0ilt (spelling changed by me for reason bellow), arrogant and pampered" these are your words because I do not understand the stupidity of your taxi drivers. I say stupidity because if the 3 taxies directly
in front of him honked at me (anyone) asking if I wanted a taxi and I did not, then why would I decide that when the 4th taxi honked I (anyone) would change their mind.
The fact that you have never heard anyone else b!$@% about this & are amazed it could irritate anyone is a obvious point to your own stupidity.
"The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over and
expecting different results. "
6) "Araks(The local wine):
Dude, for your information, our local wine is purely rice wine or coconut wine. There's no other weird ingredients in it like what you think." (your words & further proof of your ignorance)
I did not need to look any farther back then 4 months ago to find the newest
deaths caused by your alcohol. This is from the BBC.http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/asia-pacific/8079531.stm

More alcohol deaths in Indonesia
This brings to at least 23 the total number of such deaths over the past two weeks in Bali and Lombok. (the count went up to 25 dead latter that week)
Victims are said to have drunk arak, a rice or palm wine, tainted with methanol.
Methanol, also known as wood alcohol, is used in rural Indonesia as a fuel for lanterns. Even a tiny amount in the human body is highly dangerous."7)
I'm not offended by your people. I give respect to every country even before experiencing them, because it would be ignorant for me to make any decisions without seeing it for my self. I have never thought of myself as a king or better then anyone else because of my nationality or many other reasons.
As for your many comments & attempts at belittling me like this one, "I can only say that you're too cocky, full of yourself, spoint and arrogant." I only see them as childish, uninformed & immature.
Twice now you've used the word "sp0int" (spelling changed by me for reason bellow) instead of the correct word "stupid or spoiled". Please, next time you want to call someone stupid or spoiled at least know how to spell it or ask. It will make you look a little less stupid & ignorant, which I have called you a few times above.
You should see what "sp0int" (spelling changed by me for reason bellow) means. I'm sure it is not allowed in this forum.
