FOR SALE: Khmer440.com [SOLD!]

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.

Are you seriously suggesting that KiR's behaviour has been within the realms of normality over the past 18 months?

He had a reasonable concern, if he's not the one logging in with it, but it's showing active logins. Don't you think?

More accurately perhaps an admin is logging in with it to check his private messages now and then and make sure he's not spamming users for CEO.

To be fair, Joon's suggestion that Tapatalk might be validating the account in the background is likely to be the correct one.

Conspiracy theories aside, I suspect Joon's more common sense answer is more accurate. I strongly suspect noone in admin knows who Stroppychops is; it's not as if he was an active member on 440.

If Stroppychops would like to have his 440 account deactivated to put his mind to rest, he just has to say the word. Caveat, and with a nod to GM: it will be done on his request and NOT because he's posting on CEO.

... you should provide at least one or two examples beyond those who founded the forum or retract your claim.
I'm not sure if you're keeping up, but Stroppy has said he's one of them.

Enough said. There's your desired "one." Others can also chime in if they want.



Also, Bendix can explain Rebo and Bawerer's accounts if he wants. Those were "deleted" under mysterious circumstances. Anyone who paid half attention over there would have noticed.

I assure you Bendix is very naive about what goes on over there, but he picked up on the Rebo account.

He continually comes over here and claims "what! ? ! There where no bannings! ? ! ! " and he's always wrong (did you go and search his posts like I said, and now do you understand why it's futile to provide him with any facts?)

Again, you have your one, which also includes KiR saying nasty things via PM and then deleting those PM's.

Is this really so shocking?

If one accepts what appears to be the consensus opinion that KIR's management style was the major impediment to K440's success, then it logically follows that since KIR will be out of the picture, many posters will migrate back to K440 --- quite possibly at the expense of your forum.
And again, this will be better for everyone.

I'd personally rather have tougher competition, than the kind of competition KiR represents.

And yet again, if K440 gets their act together after the sale and people like it better than CEO, then I'm totally cool with that. We allow anyone to post links to wherever they want (hell, even PlayBoy has K440 in his signature, LoL) because if there's something better out there, we want our members and us to know about it. Simple as that.

And don't worry about me going to the desert, I'll only be there for about 10 months. Luckily, all I need is a laptop/phone and an internet connection to be 100% present! Oh, the wonders of the digital world! Even with me in the desert for a bit, the Dragon is still here, and that means 50% of our admin/mods team live here, unlike K440 which has had LESS THAN HALF of their admin/mod team that doesn't live here, including my buddy Gavin Mac, the tourist, LoL.

So to think I need to be physically located here non-stop is silly in this day and age. I've gone over 72 hours without seeing ANY CEO members face-to-face, and guess what? CEO is still alive, LoL.

So that's kind of a moot point, all things considered.

I never have posted that much on K440 because I found the atmosphere cliquish, toxic and almost neurotically focused on the negative.
The opposite of ^ this is the heart and soul of CEO, not me. We just set the tone, enforce our very few rules fairly, that's it.

One bad apple can bring down a forum, but one good apple cannot save it.

Like you said, you appreciate the freedoms you have here and that fact that we try to keep negativity off here and you don't feel like you have to be drinking buddies with the rest of us so your posts don't get shot down, etc.

We gotta good thing going on over here, and sorry if I'm over-excited KiR will soon be out of the picture for everyone!

Let's all pray this sale goes through!

LoL, noted.




Anyways, at present, K440 is owned and operated by KiR who has gone into members PM's and posted their content publicly on his site in order to try and ridicule them. We don't need any more examples to agree on that, LoL.

Personally, I don't think so. If this were the case, my "Cambod" account would be showing ONLINE all the time here, but it doesn't.

Who knows...
