If You Have Something Random to Say About Khmer440.com

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.

Or maybe Joon's father died right after KNY and she was dealing with a load of personal crap and family drama over the last two weeks and suddenly engaging or moderating the petty bickering on a forum felt extremely trivial.

Sorry to hear that Joon. Strange some how that you and OD both lost your fathers within days of each other. I lost mine 24 years ago and can still vividly remember the pain and sense of loss. We have had our share of differences but I want to wish you condolences. You are right --- when these things happen it puts stupid forum nonsense in perspective.

Cheers,

Seriously? You want to exploit recent events in her life for forum trolling.

Suggest you try another time mate.

I think it is necessary. There are two other options: ban discussion about 440 or let people start multiple threads about 440. The first option only stifles speech while serving no real purpose and the second option allows for the forum to be overcome with shit about 440 vs CEO. Seems to me that the best option is the one that's happening already - lumping it all together in one thread.
Agreed. This forum was born from the semi-psychotic stepmother known as K440 (Backslappers). There will always be discussion about and between. Limiting it to one thread makes perfect sense. People who want to comment, can. Others can ignore the one thread as they choose.

Cheers,

Happy to see MeMo here. Not so happy to see LTO and the other K440 pompous arseholes though. Are you really sure they give your site the required je ne sais quoi General? :ROFL2: Are all their posts 'gold' over here too? I am sick of their agendarist policies and thinking myself. I don't think I've ever seen people be that intelligent on some things (admittedly their view can often still be challenged - if allowed) and post such utter misleading bollocks when it comes to other subjects on purpose. Do I feel like I have been stabbed in the back for calling them out on it? Definitely. Do I care? Meh, I can't be bothered talking to people like that in real life, t just indicated to me that I shouldn't be bothered talking to them online either: they cant be trusted.
Plus they make me feel physically sick on the death threads, the last straw was them wishing Nick dead while laying recovering from a brain operation in Calmette, a hospital they all kept posting (wrongly) was a death sentence in its self.
Yep, You and I permabanned for "sowing discord" lol -- which apparently means disagreeing with a "Backslapper". Vlad too, although I guess he is not permabanned yet as they seem to like using him as a punching bag and lording their so called "authority" over him.

I agree, the Destitute Brit thread was the real eye opener as to how fucked up a significant portion of K440's backslapper "base" is.

I emphasize the point underlined in your post above. If you would not want to be around such people in real life, why would you want to online -- particularly when forum admin there seems to feel held hostage by them and allows nobody to challenge them. "Sowing Discord" :facepalm:

I understood it, and I thought it was well-deserved at the time.

I also didn't think it had anything at all to do with her being female. Hell, our first mod was female.

I remember personally calling her out on a lot of stupid shit she said at the time. One contradiction after another.

She would make 2-page posts, and every time someone called her out on something her standard reply would be, "I don't have to respond to that..." : facepalm:

She was acting like one of those WWF refs that looks the wrong way while one dude is beating the other dude with a chair conveniently behind the ref's back and everyone's yelling "LOOK, LOOK, RIGHT THERE!!!" but they refuse to see it.

She got whiff that she might be chosen as mod if she stuck with it, and did just that.

So she did seem to bring it down a few notches later, but I always felt she fully deserved the grief she got AT THE TIME.

Hell, it's all frozen in cyberspace if anyone feels I'm being unfair, they can go dig it up for themselves, but I stand by that it was deserved criticism she received and that it didn't have to do with any "basic misogyny."

(Don't get me wrong, there were ALSO some sexist assholes giving her grief on top of the deserved grief as well, but that's a separate issue.)

Randwick? I've not looked at how long he has been a member, but he seems to get away with puerile nonsense. Wouldn't have thought Scobz, and would exclude you and PB from causing arguments.
I saw someone say JC and LTO. LTO sounds like a yes man, but doesn't start anything, and I can't remember JC.

Cliffs on the Brit Embassy thread please? I'm not going to read 100 pages.


I don't think taxpayers want Embassies to pay for free flights, as too many people would overstay everywhere from Magaluf to Pakistan until their money ran out, and turn up for a free feed and ride home. The UK is enough of a nanny state already without extending that worldwide.

AND THIS WITHOUT ANYONE ACTUALLY KNOWING THE TRUE STORY...
What I have always found kind of interesting about that was, in so far as it is true that people didn't "know" the truth of the story, they similarly don't know what the embassy knows, the basis for their decisions, whether they responded appropriately, or even what exactly they have actually done, yet the embassy is faulted by many for not doing the right thing. If one cannot comment on the singlet twins due to a supposed 'lack of knowledge,' surely they can't comment on the embassy's actions either. If one is part of the "we don't know" crowd, all that can really be said is to list an infinite number of possible scenarios that may have occured and how the singlets/embassy were right or wrong in each, or just say nothing at all.
LTO, that post of yours would pass the acid test (and I don't mean LSD, lol) if it were not for the very telling usage of the moniker 'singlet twins' which betrays your own interests/point of view in this case.

You've changed. I hope you find it in you to change back, and tell the crew to go fuck themselves.
Jesus loves you...Mexico is great, right? ;)

My take:

1. Khmer Times published a non-story.

2. Khmer Times almost immediately realizes it's a non-story and deletes it.

3. Scobie seems to think he's uncovered the biggest story in the history of Cambodia and spends next 100 pages wondering why NOT A SINGLE NEWS OUTLET WILL COVER THE STORY, LoL.

The fact that NOBODY will cover the story at all whatsoever should have told him something by page 3, LoL. :facepalm:
