Re: KHR fixed term deposit

Re: Posters who are just here to shit on Cambodia.

Whilst I understand the sentiment expressed by John Bingham, nevertheless I can not agree. This seems to be a part of the "cancel" culture currently popular - if you disagree with somebody's views then they should be cancelled. I disagree with what many people say on this forum and elsewhe...
