So why were General Mackevili and KiR hanging out so much...

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.

Soi, I don't know much about the forum business, but I suspect financial reward was the very last thing OD and the General had in mind when they set this particular one up. More then that, I sincerely HOPE it was the furthest thing from their minds. Sometimes, money truly is the root of all evil.

Actually, if you really want to make a point, use the businesses that advertise on CEO and make it clear to the business owners that you saw their advertising on CEO. That's how to hit hard.

Actually, that quote (scripture) is that the LOVE of money is the root of all evil. Having met OD and the General, I'm confident they both love the things that money can buy, which is a whole other thing. :)

Thanks, I forgot to address that...



Believe it or not The Dragon and have had ZERO conversations about money thus far (except one offer where someone approached us, and we are likely going to turn down).

Money was the furthest thing from our minds when we started this. Seriously.

We are both passionate about having a cool forum related to Cambodia, since we both love living here and have no plans to leave!

I don't think we'll be quitting our day jobs anytime, soon, LoL, which was never part of the plan.

It shows his true colors, not ours.

It's surreal to see him putting the nails in his own coffin.


^ nail meet head. This is spot on.

Agree with Gen Mac, (reworded) "any advertising is good advertising". [That's what you meant, yeah?]

If someone slags off CEO, then people will be curious and want to check it out for themselves.
If they look at the 'active topics' page, they will see a diverse range of topics under discussion and a healthy active forum. Not to mention a professional looking site.


KiR has been digging his hole for about 10 months now. It's getting deeper everyday. :dragonchase:
... give 'em a quick, short, sharp shock ...

And that, dear friends, is how Scobienz became a moderator on Khmer440.
Kind of like winning a race because the other runners got shot. A proud moment indeed.
I noticed that Scobienz has made very few posts since becoming a mod. Why? Because he never has and does not contribute any interesting new threads of his own. He only makes comments about what other posters have written. Take away the forum thread makers and he has absolutely nothing noteworthy to say. It must be lonely being the last mod of a dying forum. No new comments to moderate... unless you are into threads about breakfast tea varieties :Yahoo!:

and KiR's tweets prove that he is viewing this forum. Hi little Peety. I bet you've read every post here and continue to do so. :ROFL:

Someone has mentioned on here that K440 has actually completely censored out our website! (Which means if you type CambodiaExpatsOnline.com anywhere on K440 it comes out like *********** instead, LoL!

^Feel free to put that theory to the test!

But the big boss over at K440 has FINALLY started giving us a little due publicity! ! Right next to his tweet about cute little puppies for sale. :ROFL:

No publicity is bad publicity, right? :twisted:
keeping_it_deleted is appearing to be a bigger idiot by the second. Does he not know they have ladies of the night at Cavern? A bar that currently advertises on his site?
Don't forget, they had a Candy Bar add for ages too. Oh yeah, Vixens as well.

KIR was the very reason I stopped posting (different name) there ages ago. No issue between he and I, but it was the utter contempt with which he treated others that did my head in. Seems many are in the same camp, and this is giving CEO an unbelievable boost - right place at the right time.

Yes, contempt and negativity. Your sentiment is well shared in the expat community, at least the 10 people I've talked to.
