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.

Great response Sambo and thanks for taking the time to address what was brought up (even if most of us don't understand it). Thanks for the... wait for it GM...transparency.

Good post Sambo. Would sort of like to see that chart he posted with the new numbers in it in response to Bendix's talk about steady growth.

I take the the pages without the double code were the front page articles/etc?

Though I'm also curious, I don't see how that's of great concern to us. However, I do think it would be highly relevant to any potential buyer and whatever price they're willing to put on the site.

Over the last few days, week maybe, I have tried to make a concious effort to leave this thread (unless I need to respond to a specific post)

It would seem others (Joon et al) have elected to do the same. CEO is more that a 'Bitch-Bash' it has so much more potential to develop into something ex-pats really need, here in Cambodia and overseas.

BC - CEO has one main difference, we can all speak freely here and we disagree, sure but here is still

'where you can speak out loud
about your doubts and fears
and what's more no-one ever disappears
you never hear their standard issue kicking in your door
you can relax on both sides of the tracks'


https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d0T2GaesWzg" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

Here is also where the 'Fire Breathing One' and the CEO Military attaché, listen and make changes to help CEO evolve. This is a new forum and we are all learning, learning how to structure things, learning our own rules and guidelines, learning how to all get along.

All the points above are valid and should and will be listened to, taken on-board, if at all possible. There is merit in each and everyone of them. So lets look at them as critique and not folk just seeking to criticise. On the other side lets seek to be constructive and not destructive.

It is nice to see Sambo making an appearance on here, valuable input and by using his usual name, is sending out a very nice and positive message, welcome Sambo and I hope your strong leadership will allow some others to unmask and throw away their Socks and Façades.

Yep, thanks a lot man!

Sorry things have gotten so undeniably nasty on this thread, but that's the natural side effect of such a free and open forum.

Thanks again for coming to post!

Yeah, it's pure curiosity. I am a geek for statistics/etc, especially in regards to web traffic. It's why I'm good at reading and analyzing them. You should see me nerd out on the reports for this site, trying to squeeze every last drop of user behaviour out of them.

I can see both sides here.

However, JBT would have surely realized 500 pages ago where this thread was going, and if he was genuinely only looking for info on the "sale" and nothing else, surely you would just wait for K440's official announcements. Right?

I mean, I wouldn't go and post on K440's CNRP/CPP thread that I'm seeing the same clapped out performance from you, over and over again, because that's exactly what I expect to see when I open that thread. Hmmmm, let me guess... JM is still going on about how racist Rainsy is.... am I right?.....

To me, you guys are like someone who goes to the library, picks up and opens a book they KNOW they won't like, reads the whole thing from cover to cover, and then complains that the library has a bunch of shitty books. LoL.

So yes, I agree there have been some flare-ups, and based on views and posts here, clearly it's an interesting (to say the least, LoL) thread that everybody and their grandma wants to come read and comment on.

We've made a transparent effort to herd all the K440 comments here (oh, and in the gentleman's agreement thread), which is already in the Asinine Arena, and we've also complied ourselves.

We're still only about 2.5 months old, and I feel some of you guys overlook that.

We've set up the important ground rules from the beginning and things are going pretty smooth.

K440 has been ruled in a very unethical dictatorship-style fashion for a long time, and many people are relieved to have a place where fairness is something the admin team strive to create.

And you might think I'm being sarcastic, but we appreciate the criticism too! Again, we expect some. It might seem like we are getting a lot right now, but in reality, we just let it be more visible than most other places on the net.

When I saw HotRecruiter's post, my first instinct was to delete it. However, he hasn't been harping on about it, it was a quick outburst. Yes, I thought it was overly harsh and I didn't like it.

He got verbally attacked by KiR in your very bar, JBT. He at least has a right for his frustrations to be heard.

(And i also edited out some info outing someone and let him know he can't do that.)

So again, please feel free to think whatever you want, but remember we're brand new and trying hard.

Also, some people just complain and complain. How many of you have offered actual solutions? At least Soi Dog even went ahead and offered what I think is a great idea. We will be leaving this thread public, but we appreciate him offering a feasible solution.

So I'm sorry that this thread with so many views and posts on it is boring to some that continue to come on here and read it all and tell us how boring it is, LoL. But remember, with the freedom to open any thread on CEO you want comes the freedom to not open any thread you don't want.

For Westerners, you guys sure complain about having too much freedom a lot, LoL. Calm down, it's a joke...

I disagree with a number of your points, but I will dissect your post in our planned Skype call.
Maybe this weekend when I am at the beach. J/K :P
