Re: news at the moment

Brought up the same subject a few weeks/month ago with the usual "scroll on by if you don't like it" responses and the general consensus appearing to be most members like the hack, burn and crash stories. It's true we've the choice to read it or not, I guess, and with the CEO demographic b...

Re: Need help understanding Air Asia email "Proof of Debt" request.

You asked your credit card company this exact question first, right? Of course not. Why do that? Actually, I’d say that doing so would be sensible. I was taking the piss as I considered most everyone would understand your bank or credit card company would have be the first people to raise the query...

Re: Man Glasses Waitress Because They Don't Play His Song

The headline gives enough info to open thread or not I realize this, but when the majority of topics down the page are nothing other than slash, crash and burn, it just gets repetitive. I understand the CEO demographic and why this sort of entertainment is gobbled up by most, but personally I find ...

Re: Man Glasses Waitress Because They Don't Play His Song

I have to say, I'm just about over the never ending violence CEO seems to take pleasure in reporting. Can I ask why CEO feels these types of stories ad value to the site?

Re: interview with one of the finest SE Asia Street Photographer :GMB Akash

Poverty porn. I think it's naive to label photography taken in developing countries or involving impoverished people simply as poverty porn without understanding the photographer's motivation, which I'd suggest is difficult unless you're familiar with the guy taking the shots. Do you feel these sho...

Re: Tiger Woods in Car Crash (again!)

You'd think with all the driving practice he does... I recall something the great bass player Jaco Pastorius (sp?) said after Rolling Stone named him the greatest bass player of all time. To paraphrase: "I worked all my life to be the best bass player in the world and now that I am it doesn't m...

Re: 3 Chinese Arrested for Violent Minimart Robbery

As long as no Khmers or Honkies get hit by crossfire, so what?
"Honkies" is a vastly underused term, I feel.
