    WAB's Mods defending Jehadi Terrorists in India

    In the past 24 hours there have been instances when not only WAB members, but WAB mods defending "poor scape goat" terrorists in India.

    http://www.worldaffairsboard.com/showthread.php?t=11979

    I could take names and make very specific citations however I would not like to do so.

    I am sure this is not the intention of most of the WAB administration/moderators. I hope this would be looked into.

    This is not an accustation at all the mods, nor is it one at WAB. But the comments of some mods will leave an imprint on WAB as a whole. I hope this will be resolved ASAP.

    Sri,

    Asim is hardly a Moderator!

    He is just an Editor!

    His power stops at the Edit button.

    I should know!

    Let's not keep this one person, or one instance specific. When supporting terrorists is not allowed on WAB, shouldn't this rule apply to all of the WAB team?

    Again, specific roles, specific people, specific instances of violation are not the question here.

    That's good! I hope some of the real moderators will look into this now.

    I withdraw that post. To those that read it...I plead exhaustion. I'm working my first midnight shift of the week, and they're notoriously tough.

    Just tired and cranky. I'll feel better tomorrow.

    However, I can't really bring myself to apologize. If it didn't apply to you, no harm, no foul. If you DID take offense at what I wrote...you may want to examine why you feel that way.

    I just did, and it didn't hurt.

    Mods, how 'bout THIS: the next time somebody starts, responds to, or in any way refers to their bete noir - India OR Pakistan, what say we KILL THE HELL OUT OF 'EM? If you jerks wanted to talk up your hometown that would be fine, and I'm sure we'd all learn a lot about how dam' COOL India and/or Pakistan was, but NO - we have to read all about how inferior the OTHER side is, how sinful/mean/nasty/brutish/ugly THEY can be. (Yeah, I know: I've been guilty of Muslim-bashing in here, too. But I have proven myself capable of STOPPING IT!)

    This place has slid right back into the sewer over the past month.

    Between threads like THIS one, moonbat n00bs, pseudo-scientific doom-mongers and more 'So's your old man' Indian-Pakistani hate-fest mud-slingin' DRIVEL...this place is getting to the point where it's becoming worthless to anybody that doesn't happen to LIKE that crap. I am getting prejudiced. I honestly hope NO new Muslims nor young Indians join, because it's always the same with you idiots: the other guys are just YUCKY!

    I'm serious: Mods should ban-for-a-week ANY poster from India that refers to Pakistan, and any Pakistani poster that refers to India. Because it will NOT be a complimentary post. Because it will NOT further the mission of this board. Because it will NOT advance understanding of either side. Because we are all so dam' SICK OF YOUR SQUALID LITTLE GROTTY IMPLACABLE HOSTILITY.

    If y'all want someplace to do this perverse little tantrum, as deep as the hate runs and as much as y'all seem to cherish your grudges, there must be a hundred places out on the 'Net that could fulfill this sickness, without dragging the rest of us into it.

    If you think I'm over-reacting, go to the 'New Posts' button and press it right now. See what percentage of threads have to do with you-know-what, and how many got nasty and personal on the first page.

    Mods? Throw the Indians out when they post derogatory articles up about Pakistan. Throw the Muslims out that respond, get personal, or do the same things that get Indians chucked.

    Y'all are behaving like Third Worlders. Stop it; grow up.
    Let's not make this into an India-Pakistan spat. It is an instance of a WAB moderator/editor supporting terrorists.

    It's not Pakistani specific. It is not Indian specific. It is not Asim specific, a general rule should be enforced and implemented.
    I rant, therefore I am.

    Bluesman,

    While I understand your anger, do start some thread where it is worthwhile for others to get involved with. That is the best way to keep people off their hobby horses!

    Now lets explain the India Pakistan issue since it appears you have not understood the same. I feel I must explain so that you have a correct perspective and more tolerance than what you have just displayed with those rather harsh words.

    I will take an US example.

    Remember how the Russians got kicked out of WAB or were you not a member then?

    Whatever for were they chucked out? Why did the WAB descend to the levels of the Indo Pak threads? Any answer?

    Why did you not love the USSR? They are good chaps, aren't they? Real good joes. right?

    Why do you all rant about Democrats, Liberals and Socialists or Europe or France?

    They are also great people to know and they are, excepting the Europeans and the French, all American citizens!

    Why the hate posts then?

    It was equally disgusting to others when the US election was on.

    It is just that there aren't enough of Democrats, Liberals and Socialists or Europe or French here to take you on and reduce the WAB to the Indo Pak spat level. And you have a free playing field to indulge in a good berating of those who do not inhibit the WAB!

    Thus, you find the problems of India Pak spats here. It is as emotional as your disliking the USSR, Communism, Saddam, beheading of Americans, killing of US soldiers in Iraq etc. Yes sir, that emotional and personal an issue.

    That apart, I agree it is getting to be real tiring and exasperating!

    I thought you should know.

    The only thing in your favour is that this is an American website and so naturally should be attuned to American desires.

    But then it is Headquartered I think in the UK.

    Ane yet the British get bashed on Iraq!

    Confusing, right?

    And the Indians and Pakistanis are making it more confusing, right!

    Go bash them like hell. Nuke them!

    But then, Bluesman, you are right. It is getting tiring.

    BTW have you noticed the increase in the Google Ads that are India specific?!

    I know that none will listen, but I will still have a shot.

    Can we post (myself included) on any thread with facts and less of emotions?

    I think that Bluesman and many others are honestly really tired out even if highly educated about the sub continent!

    Some of them know so much, thanks to us, that they might be posted to India or Pakistan as the next Ambassadors and they will do a better job than the present incumbents! I hope they will then invite us for cocktails at the Embassy!

    I know the excitement will not be there, but why invite heart attacks? Most of you are young. Too early for you to die!

    So take it easy and look busy.

    If you can't stop a WAB moderator/editor supporting terrorists, how do you plan to control emotions of all Indians and Pakistanis?

    I've been exploring these threads for a while on the 'if you can't beat em join em' theory, and once you develop the 'scan past the bullsh:ters' mode (I don't use ignore since my brain does that for me) some of it's actually quite interesting. Anyway, get some sleep buddy and I'll see if my wonderful mediation skill can't calm things down LOL, I also note TopHatter's laying down the law a bit lately as well. Give it a week or two to run its course and we'll be back on an even keel matey

    Parihaka,

    TH is sure laying down the rules.

    But in the bargain, he is going crazy!

    I really feel sorry for him and the other Moderators!

    They may not have gone to Iraq, but what they face here is worse than Iraq!

    In fact, they should be sent to settle the Iraq confusion and on the side also have a chat with Ahmedininja.

    And guess what?

    They may suceed where others are failing!
