CEO and Khmer440 reach a GENTLEMEN'S AGREEMENT!

If you have something so weird, strange or off-topic to post and think it doesn't belong in any other forum; you're probably right. Please put all your gormless, half-baked, inane, glaikit ideas in here. This might also be a place where we throw threads that appear elsewhere that don't belong ANYWHERE end up, instead of having to flush them. FORUM RULES STILL APPLY.

Looks like another form of censorship although burying a thread is not quite as bad as deleting. The Ironic part is I believe YOU started it and let it run over 200 posts before it no longer suited your purpose.

#Censorship #Sucks #Regardless #the #Forum #or #Method #Used
Actually, we publicly decided that threads about K440 don't belong in the General Chatter section because it's just in the wrong category, and outs clogging up that section.

We even left a shadow (meaning a link is still visible in that section leading to this thread) so not a single bit of censorship involved man.

Again, you found this thread, didn't you? It's public, isn't it?

There are reasons that almost all forums are divided into sub-forums, etc.

And it's hardly buried. And definitely not locked.

However, several posters have voiced their opinion that this thread is asinine. We listen to our CEO members and they actually have the power to change things on here.

We are very light on the modding and very transparent.

And suited my purpose? What purpose "was" that that you are claiming has now stopped suiting? I'm not sure I follow you.

As always, thanks for your feedback! It's always taken into consideration. :good:
Since you ask ---

1) Of course I found the thread --- you announced where it could be found -- :Bravo: to you for being #transparent about burying it.

2) Members were complaining about it because people are tired of the silly bashing between the two forums (like enough already after 1 month) Yet you were the one who put it in the top and most busy sub-forum ---- and let it run there for over 220 posts! EdwinWigan - Kindly and IMO (deliberately) tried to drag it off topic by posting his Uk post mocking the yanks. I thought this was cool and decided to support his effort by posting several replies to it --- to which others then replied to my replies and we has successfully dragged the k440 bashing off topic --- only then did you decide to bury it ---- and oddly IMO decided to reintroduce a criticism of K440 (bringing it back on topic of K440 bashing :facepalm: ).

3) It's fantastic you are listening to some of your members -- your nemesis also listens to Some of their members.

Anyway I think this thread has run it course so I could care less if you delete it or whatever. Just found the entire timing unusual.
Strangely enough, as you were posting here, I was posting something similar there, :roll:

Crisis? I guess we are all already aware the Chinese word for Crisis, is in fact constructed from two characters. Characters that can represent 'Danger' and 'Opportunity'. Yeah, yeah, we have all picked up that 99p book in some motorway service station, on a wet evening drive home.

If we are to initiate a cranium raise, from its current position embedded within the naturally occurring granular material composed of finely divided rock and mineral particles. This action may allow us...

So, if we are all to be a little less stuck up our own vocabularies and listen a little more to others points of view, however they may express it and even though they may differ from the ones we, ourselves hold. Then we might, collectively find opportunities to build a better platform, for the benefit of all ex pats. Built of a firm foundation of several, co-existing forums.

:cheers2:

LoL, it sure doesn't sound "buried" to me, based on your description.

Like I've said from the beginning, we relocated it with a "shadow" to let everyone know where it can be found.

We can't please everyone, but we can run CEO in a fair and transparent way.

Thanks again for helping me understand where you're coming from, and yes, I can now at least see why you thought I moved it because it was going off track, although censorship and burying was the furthest thing on my mind.

And I'm glad you at least appreciate our transparency here even though you didn't agree with our exact actions.

The CEO thread over there has degenerated completely into a childish slag-fest. Complete implosion. Well done to the CEO posters. We had our say, vented our frustrations, and then let it blow over. :thumb:

I wanna give Gavin some karma for his last post - pretty funny!

Come on, in fairness, the only posters aggressively ripped to shreds have been:

(a) anyone posting anything for sale, because it's always overpriced
(b) anyone wanting to rent out an apartment, because landlords and real estate agents are evil and all their apartments are overpriced
(c) anyone inquiring about a teaching job but doesn't have a CELTA, because they are underqualified hacks
(d) anyone seeking relationship advice, because you're a fool and she's probably a whore
(e) anyone who moving over from Pattaya you dirty old man
(f) anyone who claims to have seen a missing person who was actually two months dead at the time
(g) any cheap charlie living on less than $1500 per month
(h) any arrogant rich prick living on more than $2000 per month
(i) anyone with a vagina, because shut up the men are talking

So, hardly anyone, really.



So when he comes over here IOU 5 points.

Update:

The CEO thread on K440 has been locked by the big boss himself.

Honestly, I'm surprised it was allowed to go on as long as it did!

keeping_it_reil wrote: Right, enough. Everyone has had their say, I take it? It's time to move on. Thread locked.

Anyone who wants to give feedback on K440 can send me a PM.

Anyone who wants to moan and groan about K440 can do it over at Backstabbers Inc.

About 1 hour later keeping_it_deleted comes around and locks the thread.
Ah well, he's The Boss, after all.

His post:

'Right, enough. Everyone has had their say, I take it? It's time to move on. Thread locked.

I really wonder how he has 'moved on'. His post (the first since a long time, I might add) sounds vindictive, and the sentence 'Anyone who wants to give feedback on K440 can send me a PM' does not sound very transparent, to say the least. This guy has a BIG chip on his shoulder. Especially the wording 'Backstabbers Inc" sounds pathetic, to say the least.

That last comment of his undid all of the good the thread achieved, most importantly the truce between the two forums.

I still can't believe it generated 400 posts on it before getting locked!

So kudos to KiR for that!
