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.

Yep - but that means you're stooping to their level, and hence not making this forum your own.

Granted, I've got worked up over certain non-issues and idiotic posters, must be time for a drink :D

i mean the admin of that forum literally alleged i was into kiddie porn to his members the other day until gavin came and cleared it up... that's a little over the top. not to mention his continuing twitter bashing and targeting/badmouthing of our advertisers...
Oh, don't be a drama queen. He didn't "literally allege" you were into kiddie porn, he just reiterated that you had communicated by PM with the child porn spammer he was tracking, probably in response to you repeatedly harping on the fact he had read that PM. He previously disclosed to everyone that your PM exchange with the guy was on another topic entirely, standing in for the guy's fake wedding. You complained when he revealed the content of that PM, and rightfully so, but now you complain when he mentions your PM communication with the spammer without explaining the content. If your point is that he never should have mentioned your PM with the porn spammer, that's fair, but it's not fair to say that he "literally alleged" you were into kiddie porn.

I agree with you though that gavinmac is a top bloke for clearing it up.

gavin certainly is, though if it wasn't him alleging it then why did gavin have to clear it up in the first place?

This forum may have a shot if/when y'all can stop behaving like five year old girls and find something to say beyond what's wrong with 440. I'll hang in but this is already getting very old.

No offense to five year old girls.

Agree, he could have kept quiet and he stuck his neck out. He can be impartial, like a mod is supposed to be. Definitely a better mod than a few...

I sometimes wonder if he's really a lawyer... :lol:
Jesus loves you...Mexico is great, right? ;)

It's an established red top / tabloid newspaper tactic though,isn't it - use a punchy headline or pun to create an impression even if the following story doesn't actually substantiate or refer back to the original statement.

Don't know if this was the intention and don't know KIR beyond reading his rather pungent ramblings in the other place but I recall taking a sharp intake of breath on first reading...not sure I'd be the only browser who would have been left with an indelibly bad impression though did go back and review the whole post again...but maybe not everyone bothered.
