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.

With so many deaths being announced under the news heading, perhaps it calls for a "R.I.P" section. More sympathetic and less sensationalist.

John Bingham,

Do you randomly give negative marks to posts or do you just do it to newcomers for the fun of it? Not sure how this reputation works but it is obviously affected by negative marks.

I fail to see what I have posted that deserves a negative vote. My suggestion was a serious one and looking at the number of members making comments about sensational news over dead people, others obviously think the same way.

Explanation from you maybe or just another negative mark?

Nobody thinks their post deserves a negative vote. Everyone thinks their own posts are brilliant and insightful.

I would suggest that we really don’t want to get bogged down with posters demanding explanations of someone’s positive and negative votes.

Either way hes a seems like a hardened KoW expat, who he dont like/approve of noobs.

Especially seeing how as I cannot give a negative vote until I reach 10 positive.

I understand the game, keep the newcomer in his place and make sure he does not ask questions.

I don't think that's the entire case here.

He might be a bit touchy because JB was having a go at him in another thread earlier.

Does anyone really, actually, give two pieces of shit about karma points?
Really?

Negative karma means someone disagreed with what you posted. It doesn't mean they are out to get you.

Artful Dodger was banned for threatening to murder me because I gave him negative karma. He said that his associates in the Cambodian police force would cuff me and dump me in the Mekong in a plastic bag.
