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.

It sounds like a dance move - do the 440 skip!

It will be interesting to see if we at CEO can move on and develop our own forumality :thumb:

'Random'
ˈrandəm/Submit
adjective
1.
made, done, or happening without method or conscious decision.
"apparently random violence"
STATISTICS
governed by or involving equal chances for each item.
"a random sample of 100 households"
synonyms: unsystematic, arbitrary, unmethodical, haphazard, unarranged, unplanned, undirected, casual, indiscriminate, non-specific, stray, erratic; More
(of masonry) with stones of irregular size and shape.
2.
informal
odd, unusual, or unexpected.
"the class was hard but he was so random that it was always fun"


As opposed to:

'Bitch-fest'

1.
refers to an unproductive meeting of people where complaints are aired. The complaints that are aired can be about anything (K440). Often the attendees of a bitch fest meeting will dramatically complain about K440. The best bitch fests will have complaints aired that have nothing to do with the original purpose of the meeting, and end with a few of the attendees having wild temper tantrums.

Ed, this is a serious question, totally off topic.

Have you ever posted anything on CEO or K440 that wasn't some bizarrely worded, overly dramatic stream-of-consciousness that wasn't solely about the actual forums or forum members? Have you ever posted about anything else or started any new threads to encourage genuine discussion about other topics? It seems a bit disingenuous for you to continually bemoan the silly rivalry squabbling when you comment on it as much as anyone. Be the change you want to see, Ed. :thumb:

I don't think it is off topic at all.

Yes, I have started many threads on here and on K440. If you click of my profile you can review a selection of them. Some, dead in teh water but more than a few that have been quite popular.

Do I make regular cross forum comment, yes, to right I do and I love and mean every word of it.

Am I seeking a total end to it, of course not, just trying to stimulate something that is well fresh, original and god forbid, humorous but you might be right, the rock maybe too heavy, the hill too steep.

I am not here to rewrite Dale Carnegie's book, just to pass the time.

I am guessing it it after 04:00 in Cambodia, if your there atm.

Can I play "Ask Ed" ?
Ed - Do you ever get tired of people picking on you? I have noticed people elsewhere, who never say a word when 2nd century Aramaic is mentioned, or some dull pseudo intellectual waffle is posted. Yet are quick to call you boring. I think you are the only forum member to be criticized for being a tourist. Now you are being singled out here.

EdinWigan is one of the best posters on either forum.

Definitely the most mod-suitable person around, with the possible exception of badboybubby.

I find it hilarious when crap posters attack him, and he just shrugs it off.

I second that. I love Ed's semse of humor for one thing. I used to think it was just K440 piss take but I can see it may well be with malicious intent now.

K440 'Skip' Over : the state of knowing what one is saying in a post but deciding to skip over the valid point for one further down more facile. Whole conversations can be had in this way . Very much like Harold Pinter. The K440 Birthday Party.
