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.
In the online world, money tends to follow eyeballs. (I've lived off online publishing income for 8+ years)
No more eyeballs = no more money... the fact that a site has advertisers now is no way an indication that it will have advertisers in the future.
Especially if such a site is stampeding all over the basic privacy rights of its content creators.
Honestly, I didn't enjoy alot of OD's posts on that site (for the record he's gotten alot better as time has progressed).
I still believe that Admins should never read PM's. (Private Messages, meaning PRIVATE). In fact I'm surprised that people make software that allows them too (why not encrypt it???).
I very much doubt that Admins were asked to Publish PM's for legal reasons as they claim (I'd like to see a better explanation about this, but I have to assume with all the Modfuckery, it's not going to come).
This is a privacy violation towards the Online Cambodia Expat Community as a whole, seemingly born out of arrogance, ego and contempt.
To anyone that's paying attention and cares about online privacy, it's lost all credibility as a trusted space to exchange information.
That's a slippery slope to not being able to cash any cheques at all.

The cedar roasted asparagus has good chew. I don't know how to enjoy it, so I'll Instagram it instead.
I thought it was particularly disgusting for KiR to name OrangeDragon in the same sentence with a Â«THE MODS AGREE WITH YOU, SOI DOG, THAT'S WHY WE'RE TAKING OUT THIS WORDING, WHICH WE WOULD DO FOR ANY CEO MEMBERÂ» on that site, as if OD was somehow involved or in suspicion of posting illegal pictures on K440. What as small small little angry boy KiR is showing himself to be.
I hadn't noticed the User statistics at the bottom of the entry page particularly much before, but now I can't help comparing the respective registered user online figures when I log in since these are the thread starters and what will make the content interesting. Good to see from a CEO perspective in such a short timeframe.
Yes sir, I can boogie, I can boogie, boogie, boogie all night long.
I don't know the parties personally, and haven't been to the Garage, but as a former poster on K440, I was offended by some of the behavioral patterns of the persons in charge there. The tone was getting nasty and one sided indeed. Of course irony is hard to distinguish from outright disrespect in writing, but I also reckon it to be a tedious job taking care of a busy online forum. OD who is now running this one, was using K440 to promote his website, he posted a lot, so I was not surprised to see him eventually try and make a spinoff sooner or later. I don't want to get into it with the K440 crowd or anyone here, but am surely amused by what appear to be a storm in a glass of water, with plenty of juvenile and childish behavior to follow from some. Anyway, best of luck to all, and happy Sunday. Cheers.
I think it's the hypocrisy that gets many people annoyed. An anti-monger website that is funded by whorebar adverts? A free-speech zone where it's ok to be to the right of Attila the Hun but you get banned for calling out Jews? It's a joke, and compounded by KiR's egoism and preciousness. I think he's just incredibly insecure. He gives it out online but in real life as soon as anyone questions him he 'has to catch a bus'.
