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.

Well thanks for a fun afternoon's banter, now I really need to start drinking some beers, fire of a couple of caustic emails to the management of the company I work for and get some work done if I am to be able to be in PP on Wednesday. I only told them on Wednesday that I was leaving is 6 days for a couple of weeks and they had loaded me up with work.

Folks its all been good fun on this thread today.


Remember drinks at AngryBirds Wednesday from 6pm. If there is a good turnout I may be able to persuade Will to lay on an extra keg.

And for the record I do not honestly believe that GavinMac is into ladyboys or goats ... and even if he was, not that there is anything wrong with that so long as it is consensual.

Fuck it, let's get back on or off topic, I forget...

I want people's honest opinion on this. A very cool K440 member, QQ, asked for his account be deleted since the site, including the database, which includes all users info, PM's, email account, IP addresses, etc, was being sold for profit to a new person without any user's consent.

He specifically requests that his email account gets deleted from K440 before the sale.

Anyways, he asked rather nicely and publicly.

I know this part of the story will come as a shock, but the new owner, Scobie, ridicules him for wanting his privacy.

QQ kindly reminds everyone that he went out of his way the past to find a security breach in K440's website and alerts the owner about it so it can be fixed to protect EVERYONE'S privacy.

Scobie says he agrees to his request.

Then, which beggars belief, Scobie goes out of his way to describe what QQ's old email looks like, AND actually PUBLISHES his new email linked to his account! ? ! ! ? ! ! WTF?

I know it's clearly a fake email, but why would you post info about 2 emails of a nice guy that just asked to have his account deleted for fear of his right to privacy being breached?

I just don't get that, I really don't. When I see that, I seriously have to ask myself is the new owner someone I really trust with my private info on/in their website and database?

So, am I over reacting, or is that a pretty bad way to handle someone's private account info, especially someone who has already voiced their concerns about privacy/trust issues and has even gone out of their way to protect everyone else's in the past?

Please feel free to read the original dialog yourself before pondering this.

Again, when I see this thread, I can't help but wonder if he's really capable of turning things around over on K440. Privacy is such a concern for many these days, and I thought it was a poor way to handle the situation at hand.

Thoughts?

Is there an alternative to violence here ?

This LJ and the Gavvy guy are going to both want
to be on the boards. We have all seen some internet
fist fights turn into actual ones. For that reason responsible
board owners feel the need to put the flame out right away.

But this is a great rivalry showing up now after years of
boredom on that other board, where they both were all that time.
For the sake of both boards we need to continue this
LJ/Gavvy entertainment.

Can you two agree to keep all on one or the other board, or
ideally both, and go to public parties and act like you are truly
acknowledging each other as humans who each have a right
to enjoy life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness ? (at least until
you each get back on the computer?)

GM.

This thread is about the site being sold, please do not try to derail the thread.

I do not think there is anything to gain by muck raking like this.

and you do not have to worry, your account was deleted ages ago.

smart to change the email like that considering how many have been outed in public and private.

one member here was actually threatened by some clown there a couple years back for posting on a different forum altogether.

He can tell the story if he wants.

so forget anonymity over there.

we never had them here until the 440 admins arrived as valued posters.

maybe it is a British thing?
Yeah, why did KiR love using racial slurs? So sad. And staining.

CEO is free of that crap.

GMack, I'm pretty sure that was a joke. I don't think B. Gates of Microsoft.com was ever actually a K440 member.....

Isn't Scobie a "dear friend" of yours? Shouldn't you know the form his sense of humor takes?
He recently posted how he fed complete bollocks info about his company to the Penhpal guy who wrote a completely disinformed piece.

Scobie is a dope and doesn't understand all the issues.

The blind leading the rudderless?
