    Question to moderators

    The following was posted by Archer in SA section.

    Now i have a question is it against the rule of this board to post reports about ills or wrong doings in any country irrespective of its religion etc.

    I had made the warning by Archer in the following post BOLD
    So Mods tell me is that guy whom Archer is warning qualify for any action by the Mods.

    i mean is it right or the rule of the WAB to stop or punish any member cuz he or she is posting against any country,

    If yes thn why other including me are not asked to refarin ?




    [quote] 1. I am shocked Andrew or Abdul or whatever your real name is. Really. Given your high standards of digging out the latest and best about India, I am saddened that you couldnt find out a 90 year old woman. Or even a 100 year old one. That would have been much better for your purposes. Seriously try harder dude, I am sure there is some obscure mullah somewhere who will encourage you. 80 years old ...well WAB will just have to make do with your attempt this time.

    No, if we couldn't post stories about the bad stuff happening around the world, there wouldn't be much to post. Post what you want, just be prepared for people to contradict the story, which isn't hard to do in most cases as the "news" media isn't all that reliable.

    For the most part, If a person disagrees with what is being posted about their country, it is incumbent upon them to refute the post/thread.

    I'm not sure what you mean by this, but here's my take.

    It's kinda stupid to post a "news" article on each and every rape and atrocity that occurs in a neighboring country that you don't like, merely to point out how terrible things are over there.

    In addition to stupid, it's also IMHO, pointless, idiotic, ludicrous, imbecilic....oh yeah, and ill-advised:
    Posting let's say for example, half a dozen "news" articles about the sordid happenings in another country (rape, child molestation etc) within a single day begins to qualify as flame-baiting.

    By the way, that's merely an example. Not a hard and fast rule for people to adhere to.

    It's kinda OK to post news on major events that have atleast some scope for rectification but what's there to discuss about "news" like a 80yr old woman getting raped. Such crimes are uncommon and such "news" seem to be posted with the explicit aim of flamming...
    BTW we could have a separate thread on Crimes in India where such "news" could be dumped...

    its kinda more stupid to post Pak gonna name its new airport Gandhara and thn to post hate.

    In addition to stupid, it's also IMHO, pointless, idiotic, ludicrous, imbecilic....oh yeah, and ill-advised:
    Posting let's say for example, to post Nimze Istisqa offered by Muslims in Pakistan..
    No sane person would agree that there was anything discrimnatory against anyone in offering Istisqa or naming our any airport non muslim name.
    And last but not the least its kinda the most supid the Mod team take sides and advocate one sided view just beacuse they hate Muslims
    and also ignore whtever the other side is posting.

    Anyway i was against tht Andrew but now i think its unfair and injustice to hey andrw come forward im with u.

    What's stupid about that thread. It wasn't started with the intention of ridiculing pakistan. On the contrary, it showed that pakistan was waking up to the fact that it's history didn't start at 8th Century but is in fact older....

    A clarification, rather a few actually:

    1. I never mentioned the mods anywhere in that post or implied any action on their part.

    2.Given that Andrew (or Jana) was interested in only such topics, I am sure there is some stuff going on in a billion plus country which surely dwarfs what Andrew/ Jana had posted before.

    3.The above was obviously sarcasm, in that the WAB would be so "happy" to have more muck better than the previous muck etc.

    4.Thanks for all the attention Jana.

    Well, it's all over and done with now.

    Best just to move on and forget about losers that have to create multiple screennames on an Internet message board.

    That would bother me, except many of the Indian members have expressed the same view. So I guess we're doing a pretty good job of being fair, simply judging by the complaints.
