I had no idea!

This is where our community discusses almost anything! While we're mainly a Cambodia expat discussion forum and talk about expat life here, we debate about almost everything. Even if you're a tourist passing through Southeast Asia and want to connect with expatriates living and working in Cambodia, this is the first section of our site that you should check out. Our members start their own discussions or post links to other blogs and/or news articles they find interesting and want to chat about. So join in the fun and start new topics, or feel free to comment on anything our community members have already started! We also have some Khmer members here as well, but English is the main language used on CEO. You're welcome to have a look around, and if you decide you want to participate, you can become a part our international expat community by signing up for a free account.

I don't know how other members decide on their"like'"votes, but I will "like" a poster for a specific post, even if I don't like their CEO online persona in general. I rate the post and not the online person. Otherwise it's just ridiculous, because I don't even know them IRL.

The very basis of adult debate- in-line with not engaging in ad hominem responses
but I think we can get along (most of the time). Just like IRL.
Curiously, IRL also refers to Ireland, but the sentiment is no less valid ;)

I found out today this is not the case and those messages are in fact public.

I shall NOT make that mistake again.
How long have you been using CEO have you never looked at who's given reputation points and seen the comments?
I’ve only ever checked my own!

In one of my very early posts I attemped to correct the post, it was perhaps the spelling or grammer - I can't recall exactly - but suffice it to say, it was daft pedantry.

The poster gave me one of my early positive votes. I was quite pleased; it was well revieved...

The poster was Frank Lee Bent

His comment read " Go Fuck Yourself"

There's a lot of widom in those comments.

Same. I will give total dipshits an upvote if I like their posts even if they seem like insufferable assholes in general. I've given New Kid on the Block the odd upvote. Even a blind squirrel finds a nut now and then. 8-)

I like it, but I was like you at first and presumed the comments were like a PM till I realized I could see everyone's comments.
Many times I've gone to write a comment there directed to the poster but then decided to delete knowing others will see, but then not bothered sending them a PM.
At the end of the day it's all fun , well to most of us. :beer3:

I started looking at other people's "likes", a bit negatively at first, when I'd think "WTF, who could possibly LIKE that (stupid) comment ?", and then I check it out and see who posted the "like",and mostly I'would be "Yeah, whatever. Each to their own opinion."

see? with a down button you would have received a negative NOT have gotten positive, with a "go fuck yourself"
