I want your opinions on something...

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.

I want your opinions on something...

Post by OrangeDragon »

I said no agencies in the description of the housing classifieds... and i mean it. we don't want a load of spammed $1000 studio apartments with cute kitchens and sexy bathrooms...

However this guy posted... and presuming he doesn't spam the site more i'm inclined to leave it... thoughts from the members?

this is a forum. If he can read and write and answer email or
posts, this is great. If like all of the others he says, call me
call me, call me.......

Not good.

But exceptionally good if he is khmer but can answer a post.
People coming to cambodia would luck out to be able to communicate
with him.

You never know. He may have something available in the budget range. I doubt it though.

Otto,

It is not a question of budget or high end, or even middle range.

He is posting on a written forum. Can he write.

Some people can not call on the telephone. Me for instance.
I can't hear much, and my language use confuses people, to the
small extent that they can understand my accent. For me, the
phone does not work.

Dara, he does have 2 email addresses in his post. The more real estate agents that post in that section, the better your chance of finding someone that can work with your hearing problem. But what I meant was that most agents that post on these forums think that foreigners are naive or soft, and won't have any Khmer style apartments/rooms.

Agreed to part 1. And part 2 could be a new section of its own. 'Business and Services Directory'.

Don't know if he can write, but it seems he can type, so he can join in the discussions like everybody else. That doesn't mean that he should be allowed to post housing classifieds. Afterall, the rules are clearly laid out.

As OD says . . . . .

Well, mean it then.

There's someone in my head, but it's not me.

Yeah, but the reason I made the rule (much like the whole "spirit of the law" argument) was to prevent the guys who post a ton of listings every other day just cluttering up the section. The particular way this guy has approached it is much different, and honestly something I think should be encouraged. He's saying "tell me what you want, and in private we'll discuss what I've got." A single post rather than a torrent of spam.

That's why I wanted to gather opinions on it, and why I considered keeping it in the first place.
