This is a part of our Cambodia forums to chat about anything Cambodia-related. 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.

As an aside, I don't like the contemporary misappropriation of the word 'fascist'. It gets used as a byword for intolerance of others' opinions when in actuality it means nothing of the sort.
I totally agree. I feel much the same about the aardvark. It is so much more than just the first animal in the dictionary. Before the written word it was seen, rightfully, as the proud and noble animal it is but following the work of men (I use the term lightly) such as Samuel Johnson, the noble aardvark has been misrepresented.
Then again, some peasants out there might well see this as the natural evolution of a living language. A language that changes and adapts, to allow it to remain the stalwart of social intercourse. What do these dimwits know?
