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.

Deleted already. Ha!
They were hoping all the comments there would be negative about this site, and when too many posters failed to bash CEO the thread got locked. :thumb:

The mod there says this site is dull. Their most active thread over the the past week is about breakfast tea varieties. :ROFL2:
And riveting reading it is too

Gone too.
What does CEO stand for?

I always thought it was Chief Executive Officer.

That doesn't make much sense though.

Next logical step:
Start a k440 thread talking about the fact that...
on CEO there is a thread talking about the fact that...
on k440 there is a thread talking about the fact that...
on CEO there is a thread talking about the fact that..

The possibilities are endless.
And best of all, it generates traffic for both sites! :)

You have not considered the possibility that CEO originated from a secret plan by both of them instead of creating a new section. We might all be being unwittingly exploited, LOL.

In any event, I think people should expend their energies on interesting threads on their respective sites rather than flogging a dead horse.

A few suggestions:

Lawyers
Bankers
nkotb has yet another new girlfriend
Bar for sale
Cambodian police release finding that Pol Pot was a murderer sending people into forests to be killed by trees
Breaking: vlad has pun-free day on forum!
Jesus loves you...Mexico is great, right? ;)

Quite some accusations by KiR regarding OD and Gen M (formerly known as Gen Z). Calling Gen Z a liar and doubting their business ethics. :popcorn:
keeping_it_riel wrote:I'm all for competitive markets and Gen Z and OD have every right to start up a competing business. Initially, I was quite happy because it rid K440 of the worst overposters - the guys who'd been here 1-3 years and posted irrelevant rubbish on every single topic derailing and wrecking threads asunder.

However, my real concerns are with the marketing of their site and the key word here is ethics.

Initially, OD opened a non posting a/c on K440 and spammed a number of K440 members with adverts for CEO.

He was spoken to by other K440 forum mods and agreed to stop doing this, as did Gen Z.

Then yesterday, I got complaints from three different K440 forum members saying they'd had spam emails from Gen Z who'd created yet another non posting a/c here and had spammed dozens and dozens of members here with a PM attacking this site and enticing them to his site. This is after he'd agreed not to do this. Clearly, therefore, Gen Z is a liar and is not to be trusted.

Next, there its how they are marketing and selling ads. When K440 wanted advertisers, we ignored what our competitors were doing and found our own advertisers. This was obviously far too much work for Gen Z who instead simply contacted all K440 advertisers offering them a free ad.

Then an interesting thing happened. A few days later, those advertisers who declined got a second email.
Hello.

Your company currently advertises on a sleazy website called Khmer440.com. That site promotes sex tourism in Cambodia and promotes other sponsors such as Cavern Pub, which is a "hostess bar" ( a place that provides prostitutes to it's male customers).

Please STOP your advertising with Khmer440.com because it is a sleazy website that portrays Camboida in a negative way. Khmer440.com is NOT the type of website a company like XXXXXX should ever be affiliated with.

Thank you.
I'm posting this because those of you happily posting on CEO should be fully aware of their business ethics.

KH440 is in a very bad position.

One new forum appear and in a few days they lost their most active poster who were not mod (and half of Vladimir), what can they do ?

Recognizing the existence of the second forum ? Not really after such an hemorrhage of poster the last think you want to do is to give any publicity to this concurrent.
Trouble is even if you are in the middle of a hot wave of activity (one very good thread about a bag snatching and an operation vigilante against a lord of crime that stranded a blond in bar with a bar tab) people are bound to want to speak about this second forum. Starting world war III would take time, cutting the electricity on PP would mean no air cons, and the good old technic "man are not this guy a pedophile ? " did not works.
So the only workable solution is to use the CENSURE, you remove every mention of this new forum (or every forum in general to be safe), and you selectively ban member as example to demonstrate that you are dead serious about not speaking about THIS
But This refuse to go aways and how many post can a team of mod make about new pizza ? After 3 weeks you have to address the subject somehow, like pregnancy after a certain point denying cross the face saving line and enter into pathological denial.
So now the mod have to admit that CEO exist in a way that convey the total none important none threatening nature of the site. Special mention to gavimac the argumentation :

- CEO is a pale copy of KH440, by poster who are incapable of doing a usable forum anyways
- The poster who left were troublesome anyways and good ridance
- We did not speak of the subject (in fact actively removing post and permanently banning flam ware spinning poster as Soi dog) because we did not want to start a forum ware. Our forum is very active right now with all this review about pizza place and we want to stay focus.

Ha KH440 is doomed not once they acknowledge there could be a problem on their side, propaganda propaganda

Ho I forgot quite funny to see KIR use the word Ethic

Not to be snide, but it would be nice to have a snapshot of K440's first 3 weeks of existence!
:hattip:
Well, you can compare the "member lists" of each forum.

CEO's first member (Orange Dragon) signed up May 2. In 25 days there have been 182 registered users.

In K440's first 25 days there were only 19 registered users. It took 333 days for K440 to reach 182 registered users.

Of course, K440 probably deleted some of the accounts from the early days. Also it was 11 years ago. There are more expats in Cambodia now and internet use and availability has expanded considerably, especially in Cambodia.

So take these statistics with a grain of salt, but I would say you guys are off to a great start. Keep up the good work! :bow:

:please:
Guys; your acting like children, my cock is bigger/better than yours.
I have no love for k440 but come on,

comparing a forum that started when there were 1/10th the expats in country ( 10 years ago) does not compare to starting one now an if truth be told
75% or more of the posters here are from k440

One of the things i find so distasteful of K440 is they all were ( or at least mostly) whoremongers back in the day, but now they have taken the moral high ground.

I would like to see these forum morph into something more than a remake of a tired old forum with members that grew up and became boring
