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.

I quite like trollz. They should have a thread to reveal their deep unease with self.

Carry on.

Why would you turn down money? What was the offer?

We turned it down.

They wanted us to completely censor their competition from our website. No mention of them, etc.

We don't like those terms.

And we're not in this for the $$$$$. We wanna have a kickass forum for Cambodia!

Blocking our advertisers' competitors from even being mentioned on our site is not a good look for a forum that should be able to discuss anything related to Cambodia and beyond.

I have to come clean. It was me who offered money for an ad. Basically I wanted to be elevated to a God like status on this board with an infinite amount of karma and the right to flame every poster. Especially the ones with the protection status. It was all a go but then a dispute was raised over the keywords that I wanted censored to keep attacks on me out. They just wouldn't do it so now you're still allowed to post such phrases as Australian buffoon, semi literate pseudo academic, bottom feeder, keyboard warrior and many more that could be used to describe me over time. I guess it's a win for the integrity of the board...

If GM and KiR want to hang out in the real world, that is fine with me. I think they have been mates for a long time. GM and the Dragon (Orange not Red) give a massive amount of time here but they are only human, well the dragon is, so when they want to go about town for a few cold ones, cool crack on gents.

As for KiR, he has run K440 for a long time and it maybe going through a bit of a patch atm but I am sure this will offer the opportunity for some timely reflection. There are many occasions when we all need and should revisit the business plan, a tweak here a nip n tuck there, it is a good practice.

If when the winds of change have reduced to a gentle breeze, we are left with the option to play on CEO and K440, is that not more choice. Is it not in all our interests to maintain a choice. Doesn't this improve the whole customer experience.

When all the analogies about the Third Reich are told and things settle down, we could be left with two or more choices, then the rules of natural evolution will ultimately prevail and there will be enough food to support two forums or natural selection will reduce it to just one.

On-line we can all enjoy some banter and sometime we need to on-line slap one or two people down, for one pun to many but we don't ever need or should take it off-line. That is not for intelligent people, that is for mindless thugs and morons.

I look forward to the day when KiR can finally 'Come Out' to the whole of Cambodia

...and unmask, run K440 and also relax and play on CEO. There is a lot of spear throwing at the moment but it is just basic Tuckman, we will soon move on to norming. If we know that and keep it in mind, we might choose to throw slightly smaller spears, as in a few weeks we will probably be sitting down having a beer or two with out current target.

:pardon:

Today we managed to buy umbrellas for three more peasant children in Wigan and one small dog. Thank you for your continued generous support.

Amen. The rest is good too.

Good post. What does the one small dog do with an umbrella?
