Make your voice heard to admin

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.

Im a believer of freedom of speech aa such.if i dont like something i dont look.pretty easy to do.
Freedom of speech is between individual and State. It means Simone can publish books or write news opinions or participate in debate expressing that she loves watching dead people without being silenced by the government.

It doesn't mean that Simone has a human right to post gore pictures on privately hosted websites or that we have to put up with it.

This isn't 4chan ffs.
I did say as such. In that i meant people should be able to post what they like as long as it is inside the rules.as far as im aware the images where posted in wrong forum section, and have now been removed from public view.so anyone that wants to look now has to click to see. Entirely there choice. As it should be. I am not defending simones posts.i have no fascination with death and dont understand hers.

Darknet Cambodia News
This is a place for uncensored and sometimes brutal Cambodia news stories that might offend the public and won't appear in the Cambodia Daily, Phnom Penh Post or Khmer Times. Graphic content in the news is sometimes disturbing and is often censored in mainstream media outlets, but some viewers are mature enough to see what's really happening in the region with as many details included as possible, so if you are a CEO member with 20+ posts and interested in uncensored news stories, contact one of us on the Mod Team and we will grant you access.
You're warned as to the content in Darknet and you don't have to look at it. Sorry, I don't see the problem.
LOOK, i am going to the darknet to see other things, read about his death, or whatever, ( its not only deaths there, nor is the darknet the GORE NET )

all i ask is i dont need see the photos, ( an this goes for all images posted in the darknet
if she or he puts them in a spoiler with the note
EXTREME gore
i am fine with it as wont look

anyway,the bitch,( do really know she was a female)is gone
THANK YOU

OK? :beer3:

Its quite obvious they are police photos and as such, someone had to have posted them illegally or sold them

One thing for some posters who may not realise, as much as it is the 'culture' in Cambodia to freely display photos of dead people and body parts, there are some cultures that do not look at images of dead people. So, while we respect the freedom of those who want to post such images in appropriate places, perhaps we could also respect those who do not wish to see them, as is their cultural way. Therefore, think about that before posting them in the thread itself. Use the spoiler tag within the thread. Clearly note within the body of the thread what the images contain inside the spoiler tag then every group's individual needs are respected. Except....I think it is also the case that some cultures don't refer to the deceased by name either. I guess there will be some discomfort still, but no reason not to make an adjustment in posting practices.

Good call. Also, I really liked what Fax had to say about this on another thread. I would have :thumb: it twice if possible.

Now I am wondering about this ghoul stuff being posted on the internet. Of course the photos must come from police or people connected with them. We knew that photos are sold locally to Khmer news outlets, (and so we call the Khmer ghoulish, hmm ok), and maybe I was naive, but it now seems obvious that selling extreme gore photos of dead people is a thriving international online business, and that people like Simone are attracted to Cambodian internet sites because there are loads of these photos available.

Well done Cambodia. Internationally famous for all the wrong reasons again. :(
There has been gore on the web since it was invented. Rotten.com was massive in the 90s. Even Liveleak before it got sold. It certainly brings in the traffic...

So does hardcore anal sex porn, visits to Pornhub totalled 33.5 billion over the course of 2018. Thankfully the mod's chose high-quality intellectual banter over traffic.

when i was doing seo 15 years ago, i always looked at what porn sites were doing, always cutting edge technology
They had to, as there was so much competition.

Therefore banning someone for overdoing it is not censorship. There are existing sites dedicated to the purpose and Simone said herself that she had already gained popularity on such sites.

CEO has a different purpose - it's primarily a forum for discussions revolving Cambodia. Simone admitted to having no interest in discussing anything and her only interest in Cambodia was to use it as a source for gruesome photos so that she could spread them on sites like Rotten.com et al and what ever the hell someone does with a large collection of bizarre images.
