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.

:D I could imagine a site like Thaivisa being an attractive financial business given the huge amount of advertising they have, but from what I'm seeing K440 has about a dozen advertisers. So what exactly is the attraction apart from a labour of love.

His tweet is that of a sad little child's teary-eyed "Nobody luvs me!!!" whimper for sympathy. He can't let go of the reigns, that site is his life. How else would he feel powerful? This drama should be a wake-up call for him.

You are not powerful, little boy. You don't really have many close friends. You have a few acquaintances brought together over time by that website (that you bought, not built...huge difference) In fact, many, many people dislike you. Have a nice day.
Lay the boots in dude. :assasin:

I've considered that too. The possibility that he's just trolling everyone, but I suspect it's real. He's been slipping for a while now and the forum seems to have taken a toll on him.
Bring Back Buck wrote:Not a coincidence of course, but this is more of an indication of the effect of CEO on KiR's state of mind which in turn is affecting k440. Quoting the great man, KiR has been a total cock trumpet and twat flannel for a long time until now, but his mental state has been in greater decay than his "toothache" which got the CEO train rolling.
I honestly think he finally realizes that he's alienated a lot of people with his constant childish tantrums and Napoleon complex. And not just forum posters, but actual friends and acquaintances. I also think he realizes that having other forums around on which he can't censor anything said about him makes him really nervous. He's used K440 for years to further his own agenda, name call others and at times, downright slander some individuals. Now he feels that the same could happen to him. He also probably doesn't have the will or energy to go in a "forum war". Cambodia is a small market and if competition stiffens up, the fierce searches for advertisement/staying on top might be too much trouble.

As others have mentioned, businesses are bought and sold every day. I think KIR simply figures he can get more money out of it now than he could in a few months or years with CEO around. Seeing this forum start off so quickly might have pushed him to think that the time has come to move on. He might need the money, or simply be tired of managing a forum (especially when it's impossible to please everyone). I suspect it's a combination of all the things mentioned above as I believe the forum's various ills and gangrene-like symptoms have been weighing on him and giving him stress he doesn't want anymore.

Either way, trying to sell K440 now is akin to selling MySpace after Facebook appeared, or Yahoo after Google. ;) I jest, I jest. Time will tell. But it does feel good having threads where half the posts aren't modded or deleted whimsically. Either way, if selling ends up making him a happier man/less bitter, then I'd say it's a wise choice for the long-run. Shouldn't have trouble finding a buyer if the price is right. If I understand correctly, the "1/2" sign means he's only selling his shares and PB is keeping his?

I believe the "1/2" means it is the first of 2 posts. It is immediately followed with "Serious offers only to [email protected] 2/2".

I am curious to know if he is only selling his shares or if the buyer gets 100%. Maybe someone should make a "serious offer" and find out ;)
