Elsewhere on the Internet today

This is a part of our Cambodia forums to chat about anything, whether it relates to Cambodia or not. This discussion forum is at the top of our site because it's usually the busiest part of the expat community chatter with random topics on just about everything, including expat life, Khmer politics, Cambodian blogs we have or have come across, or whatever else our members want to discuss. Whether you're an expatriate, tourist, Cambodian or random traveler just passing through South East Asia, you are welcome to talk about anything or start new topics yourselves.

"Someone needs to clue in poor hapless Scobienz about the sad state of his new position on a dying forum run by a petty tyrant."

Violet said this in the same thread: "That does not take away from the fact it's bloody out of order for the owner of a forum (or an admin/mod) to post a PM as a dig at someone you are having an issue with. There's really no denying that."

No response to that (so far).

The name violet is from Egyptian, which was used to describe the colour of The Nile.

From wiki:

In Arabic language Violet color is called Nile and the dye Nilege made from Viola flower (of the violet color) which was dominant on the shores of the Nile River, giving the Nile color as the name of the Nile river. the Violet shade of Blue is called Nili in Contemporary Arabic.

I did post once that she was in denial, but I think she missed the reference...

Anyway, violet,get your butt over here, we need some balance!

I know a lot of posters there and here have had some issue or negative views on him for his moderating in the past... and possibly present.
Being a mod is hard, and sometimes it's hard to know where the line is. Gav and I are friends offline, despite our regular clashes online, and discuss it a fair amount. He clarified something in a thread recently, and it was good on him for having done so. Since I can't post it there...

The porn spammer had posted some kind unrelated offer in the forum, looking for a stand in for his wedding, and OD responded to him by PM. The offer was a hoax, whether OD's response to him was serious or in jest, I have no idea.
Thank you.

- Arbitrary deleting of post. Check
- Arbitrary deleting of account. Check
- Publication of deleted account. PM Check
- Publication of former poster real name. Check
- Suggesting that former poster where into kiddie porn. Check

The remaining option should be :

- "checking" the brake of the motorcycle of former poster.
- "virile" discussion with three muscled friend and former poster.

But the old forum seems quite dead now, the mod must represent 30% of the post.
