Responding to Anonymous on Apr 08, 2019. The post you are referring to is merely stating some anomalies for Numbeo staff to take into account, in however way they deem fit, if at all - that is, it does not at all look like "bashing". It is pointing at the difficulty of skewness and other biases. Furthermore, the personal information looks like a mishandled, intentional or unintentional copy-paste or reproduction of the original contribution, which is NOT part of the contribution body.

Bangladesh in general is nothing short of a shithole,full of scammers,lived there experienced it for 5 years.The only reasons Bangladeshi's are mesmorized,by tourists,with white skin is because they see an opportunity to extract as much money as possible.All of Bangladesh is the same no matter if it's Dhaka or otherwise.Bangladesh condones huge brothels where women are abused unfortunately while the government looks the other way.Ahh the muslim way of doing business.Nonalcohol drinks rein supreme throughout Bangladesh.BUT the government has their own concoction that's killed many buy just drinking the nonalcohol poison.Uneducated and lazy described bangladeshi's to a T nonprogressive and nonexistent a throwaway race.
