    A suggestion of commonsense.

    I'm stating the obvious and im surprised it hasn't been done yet.

    97% of posts in the asian-pacific forum are directly aimed at Indians and *****. My suggestion is set up a Sub-Continent forum. Reasons for it are obvious, persons from other countries cant have discussions in there currently (even the chinese posts have ceased) with the asia-pacific forum swamped. The effort was made to create new less popular regional sections for others here at wab. With that in mind one would think a sub-continent forum is logical.

    First of all please do not use the term "P a k i" on this forum. As for your suggestion, we will think about it.

    The contention that "persons from other countries cant have discussions in there currently (even the chinese posts have ceased) with the asia-pacific forum swamped" is not understood.

    If there is a Chinese thread or an Australian thread in the Asia Pacific forum, who has stopped anyone from visiting these threads and making them active and lively?

    Are you aware that there is no Africa forum? Are you aware why? Because there is hardly anyone contributing to it!

    And with 43 posts in your pocket, it is rather presumtous of you to opine "I'm stating the obvious and im surprised it hasn't been done yet".

    Had you crossed the 50 mark, you would have been acquinted with a gentleman going by the name of Bluesman and his onslaught of Butter Cookies!

    If such Chinese or Arustralian threads were even posted in the a special Forum, would it make it any less moribund than it is now?

    It must be understood that a thread has "life" if there are adequate posters interested in that thread!

    It obviously has no connection with any swamping of the Asia Pacific Forum with 97% post on India or Pakistan.

    The fact is that there are many Indians and Pakistanis on WAB, while the Australians and Chinese can be counted on the fingertips and that too they are most inactive.

    Surely, that is no fault of Indians or Pakistani from entering into debate by opening India Pakistan threads in not only the Asia Pacific forum but elsewhere too!

    Therefore, I persume I am more surprised than you and what I have written is more obvious than what you have written, but then you are being selective in your interpretation!

    Just a point of curiosity, what earthshaking event is taking place in Australia that would be of interest?

    Of China, yes there is much happening but then there are hardly any Chinese from China on the WAB. Only the Colonel gives us some insight into China, that is when he is not deer hunting or looking after his horses.

    Don't recall stating anything about aust news in my orginal post. Was talking about the rest of asia. But no you pretend you didnt read that and cont posting what u want.

    When I was reading an article on Siachin by a Pakistan Army man and he said the army would often airlift 'proper' food to raise morale. He said that to send field rations to that hell hole would be cruel, since they have "had every last trace of taste or norishment painstakingly removed fromn them." If you don't mind idulging this civilian, army food cannot be all that bad. Other contenders, my sisters cooking for one.

    lol Parihaka, we just pwned the rest of the world. Im a Victorian so u can have the rugby.
    Am I just dying for a fight? You bet it. I am a retired military man bored with all this peace!

    What's your grouse about the number posts I have made? I assure you that they were not totally junk. In fact, your redundant rant has added some posts to the kitty.

    I really don't know why you are laughing your **** out. If one has piles, it appears that the **** is falling out as if it is laughing!


    What's wrong with the posts that you have listed. Anything wrong in them? If so, do let us know. They are issues, aren't they, that could invite debate?

    India and Pakistan are happening places. Therefore, they are in the news.

    What can Indians and Pakistanis do, if nothing happens in your part of the world? Can't even talk about the weather.

    Guess what?

    Parihaka has produced more comments on a little country like NZ because he has added interesting tidbits which has interested posters.

    Instead of wallowing in self pity, use a bit of grey matter and start something of interest about Australia, and stop being "Down Under" and feeling trampled and behaving as if you are Under Weather!

    Is it our fault that you are suffering from self pity?

    Start something about Howard. He is controversial enough and then start defending the bloke. It will make Australia a happening place on the forum.

    Ok, to nudge you on the way and get you out of this self pitying melancholy, I think Howard is a BUM. And to add greater zing - NZ will capture you soon! They, as it is, thrash you in Rugby.

    No, A sub forum wouldn't be good.

    We don't have a ghetto mentality!

    We like to expose our dirty linen to the world.

    Like me and like my dog.

    We are not secretively insular.
