why so much disrespect for those recently passing

This is a part of our Cambodia forums to chat about anything Cambodia-related. 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.

why so much disrespect for those recently passing

Be they dying of a drug overdoes, cancer, jumping off a building, accident..
Why is there so much shit on here?
Often CEO post death info before many of the passers relatives, friends, might even know, so it shows up when they search their names

They were all someones son, brother, father, ( yes seems mostly males seem to die in Cambodia)
Think about what you want ur relatives & friends to read about your life.
Think about it next time you post shit.
Show some respect or dont post at all.

Well said.
I come from the same town as Michael Hyslop but have never met the guy. 2 days ago I sent messages to family in Plymouth and one cousin tracked down his family and contacted them. No reply.
Now, when I go to the CEO thread to find out the latest news on Michael, all I see is a debate about fucking Swiss watches.
How disrespectful and ridiculous is that ?

It is good to know which Swiss watch is the best.

I’m very sorry Richard. I’m new and I didn’t realise this was your forum and you made the rules about what you think is acceptable.

I made a comment about watches because a post he made was posted (my someone who does own the forum) and I simply commented on it.

Plus the guy isn’t dead but well done for jinxing him.

You seem to like to get outraged on other people’s behalf.

OK, so no more comments and conspiracy theory s on the disappearance of MH370 and the 239 people aboard the plane, cause it's disrespectful to talk about them before their bodies have been recovered and they have had a proper burial. . Should we include the millions that have died in Afghanistan, Syria, Iraq and Palestine who have died from bombings and their families have never had the opportunity to say goodbye before the news of their deaths were reported on the world news media. Where are we supposed to start and finish on comments on those that die and who is big enough to say , this is how it should be.

It's definitely been bad lately. I know we get so used to people dropping like flies, but we need to remember that friends and family read CEO quite often when they pass. We have the DarkNet for more speculation, etc, but we should also start removing posts that are over the top. I hate to say this, but it's probably better if we just delete them instead of making an announcement every time we make a decision, as some topics would look pretty messy. If you posted on a death topic and it goes missing, you can assume we deleted it, and you can easily contact us if you are really clueless as to why it was deleted.

Richard doesn't own the forum and he doesn't make the rules. However, he is a member and has every right to say what he has posted.

We used to pride ourselves at being a self-moderating forum. You know, a place where people actually think before hitting submit.

Newer members who constantly post crap will quickly be branded a troll. I hope you're not one of them.

I reported my own post (on the other thread) and then you gave me negative karma, or whatever it’s called.

Is that what trolls do?

Nice. Merci.

Hypocrite.
