Those Living Cheaply Under a Grand

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.

WE would stay for 4-5 days and than walk back out.

Saw your TV series on Discovery recently, glad you made it out of that minefield rice paddy and back into the mine-free jungle. :D JK, sounds like a good yarn.

I am not sure which side of the fence I sit on this one BUT, I am glad to be able to sit on a fence and watch this discussion unfold. There was a time and place, that after the fist line or two the other poster would have just simply become one of the 'Disappeared'

We will all disagree, from time to time. Sometimes on trivia and other times on very important issues, like this one but it is how we resolve those issues that really matters

Thanks to all involved

Onward ever onward

Oops, it's set to HE now, since many of us are used to that already.

Anyways, I remember when we set this up.

I take the blame. It was done hastily and was before anyone was even posting.

I'm new to phpbb and was just testing it out. We were very busy and setting it to something more professional and courteous.

Again, my bad, but it was right when I was first The Dragon allowed me to have a glimpse behind the curtains....

I'll go through and edit this thread manually if everyone wants, in order to get rid of the whole "HE" bullshit. I probably should anyways...

If you ban the term 'HE' with this not retro adjust?

I am leaving this post intact so that everyone will know what is causing joke for a poke's pucker factor.
Again, as explained, it's a system setting. We can't say "this one's ok, that one's not" with it. so while you in no way expose us allowing the use of that name, in general, does. it exposes us to anything anyone ELSE posts with that name.
