Philip-ji, there has been enough said from both sides of the school issue related to mehndi, tattoos, tilak, etc. I am not writing for or against any of that here or any posters or their comments that arose from this topic.
I have noticed that the senior folks on this forum and the mods give you a lot of leeway even though your insight can be blatantly slanted geo-politically. We all see where you are tilted towards. In addition, you are unique in your diatribes against our MEA and its officers and perhaps more broadly our strategists, calling them almost all the times you write, eunuchs and similar other epithets. I am not searching and referring to such posts of yours here, assuming you are not going to disown such a consistent streak in your writing. In fact, when I reported one recent post of yours, the mod who reviewed it just chose to remain quiet, as far as I know. I wonder if the kid-glove treatment by the mods is due to your legacy (as you have stated above) and/or your own past and if it is, I think it still is unfortunate. Whatever legacy it is, I can respect that, but not your uncouth, disrespectful language. Even if you have some genuine grievance against a few people, it is grating to see you abuse generations of people from an institution all the time you write.
I thought it would be timely to bring this up when you not only complain about "gutter-inspired slur and foul-mouth" and your advise to the mods but also brought up your legacy. You would know respect begets respect. I only hope that you take my post in the right spirit and reconsider your vocabulary when writing here.
