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.

Ok, I've been kept in the dark about the sale, so I'll have to do some major speculating here. Let's play connect the dots, LoL...

I've gone back and searched for any clues I could find... Thanks in part to the tricks of the trade I've learned from my uncle Gavinmac over the years, LoL...

My most educated guess thinks it's Raz. I went through and looked carefully at the posts made on the Khmer440 sale thread on K440, and I compared them to the clues that were given on Twitter..

Here are the clues:
raz wrote:
It is difficult to put a true value on K440. There is no doubt that for some reason lots of people seem to be attracted to it. I can personally say that the money I spent of advertising for the last 3 years was worth every cent an the ROI far outweighs the cost. The original team should stay put irrespective of who buys it, that formula of retards, bottom feeding dwellers, smart arses and so on seem to work:)

I am not everybody's cup of tea and I don't give a rats what people think. KH440 has generated lots of leads and business just by the sheer volume of traffic. I am sure the 3 offers has weighed it all up and though it is worth it. So for all the clowns out there who constantly give their 5cents worth, give it a rest!

It wasn't the biggest cash offer on the table but it was the offer that best guarantees the site continues as we know it.

One good thing about the sale is that the new owner will be an expat in #Cambodia not a short fat shitheel in based in Saudi

Here's a quick update for anybody interested: we've accepted an offer for 100% of #K440 and all parties have agreed for the sale to be completed by the end of July.

I'm not going to go into much more detail until nearer the end of the month, but I will say that the offer we accepted whilst not the highest offer made, was the best in terms of keeping the spirit of board intact and maintaining expat ownership. The higher offer would not have done either of these things.

More details will be announced in a week or so.


"I can personally say that the money I spent of advertising for the last 3 years was worth every cent an the ROI far outweighs the cost. The original team should stay put irrespective of who buys it..."

^ So we have Raz pointing out his financial gains from the site, and explaining it's "worth" to him.

That gives him motive.

Then he goes on to say how he would run the site, hypothetically, if he bought it. Basically says he wouldn't change a thing.



"I am not everybody's cup of tea and I don't give a rats what people think. KH440 has generated lots of leads and business just by the sheer volume of traffic."

^ Nobody has even addressed him in that thread, and he brings up that he's not well liked and that he doesn't care. WTF? Why would he bring up how people feel about him out of the blue, LoL? Seems rather odd.



"...it was the offer that best guarantees the site continues as we know it."

^ Surely this implies that the new buyer is a K440 member? Who else besides a member could continue the site "as we know it" without being a member already? Hmmm... It's gotta be a member.



"...the new owner will be an expat in #Cambodia..."

^ This verifies that the new owner definitely lives here in Cambodia. Raz lives in Cambodia. Hmmmm...



"...the offer we accepted whilst not the highest offer made, was the best in terms of keeping the spirit of board intact and maintaining expat ownership."

LoL! Raz definitely has "the spirit of the board" and would also fulfill the "expat ownership" status. He's taken the "spirit of the board" to a whole new level a couple times over the past month or two, cough $525, cough $200 per hour, cough, LoL.



Ok, there's my theory. Or maybe Scobie.

What you think, could I be on to something here? Would he make an appropriate owner of K440, LoL?

Who knows, only time will tell.

If it is raz then I would expect the site to plummet faster than a Malaysian airliner...

Bored to tears in a country where alcohol is illegal and there are no bars... so constantly online, lol. Sort of like how GavinMac is never really in Cambodia except in spurts.

LMAO. Honestly though, though Raz rarely post only when people rile him up, I find most of his posts to be really funny. Just like when Gavinmac poking fun at Logo.
