Those threads have far too much negative energy about them. Every word and picture is over analyzed to much grief. People call each other names. The amount of political interest is no doubt impressive, but perhaps there are other avenues to express it productively.


I would settle for a end to the relentless bad language, even if personal attacks don't end.

It is more than annoying to wake up Sunday Morning and read filthy language sprayed across posts with nary a second thought.

I wish there were a list of board frowned upon usages.

My first one is saying 'Thoo' after everything. Another one is 'moron'. Coming from TN this is gutter level language, don't know about other places. Something you would never expose your kids too.

My own test is if I will be happy if my kids read my post. There is not a single post I have made that I would not be happy to show my kids. Even the heated moments.....

Moron: Moron is a term once used in psychology to denote mild intellectual disability. It is the Americans who made this term an insult, not Hindus. For Hindus it still denotes murkhatva!

***

Language & words represent human thoughts and expressions. Whether a word is gutter/offensive depends upon many aspects & these things cannot be applied selectively. We shouldn't have a BRF caste system where some people decide what is erudite and what is gutter language.

For me any English word/expression used to describe Bharat, it's history & society is inherently derogatory and only Samskrutam words must be used to describe Bharatiya historical and social aspects. But I respect other's choice of words and read/respond to them.

RamaY: STOP. No one needs a 3-paragraph long expostulation on whether or not 'moron' is a cussword. The irony may not strike you, but the you vs Theo fights are one of the several I alluded to in the original post. Please, move along.

You're in no position to provide such moralizing advice; for someone who wrote in sincere detail promising good behavior in return for being allowed back from your permaban, you have not kept your word.

BTW there is no RamaY vs Theo fight at least from my end, just in case it gives the wrong impression. I have never called RamaY anything AFAIK. Just to be clear...

Dear Admins,

I usually login using chrome on my android, but for a few days when I login the redirecting page will take me back to home page without being logged in. Same thing happened in Safari as well. Right now I'm using Chrome in Windows in some other laptop.

The Bakis have driven me to a point where my tears have dried up, I find it hard to feel sad or emotional at our own people getting killed. Only anger & a resolve that we will somehow avenge this someday with 1000x interest. And you ask me to dig into myself & find some emotion for Bakis killing Bakis? No sir, No can do. You should give this thread a miss if it makes you throw up.


Bhai, I didnt ask ask you specifically to light a candle,cry a river or do any pissful thing !

you want to cheer 140 dead kids, bajao taali, dance maybe, distribute sweets .. ? fine by me .. go right ahead !
But if I see it on BR, and say that its not right, disgusting even, why does it disturb you so much ?

You've had your say, I've had mine.

And im getting sick of folks asking me to give this thread/forum a miss .. I believe on a forum, members express their views .. whats with shouting out people whos views do not match yours ?

from when did BR become a pak abuse/bashing forum onlee ?


If you have comprehension problems with English, please tell me which Indic language would work best with you & I'll put it down in that. If you're english is alright, please do quote the post where I did, in your words, "bajao taali, dance maybe, distribute sweets " or else, please stop putting your foot in your mouth.

PS - I never asked you to give this forum a miss, only this thread. Now you're acting like Burkha Dutt, claiming victimhood where none exists.

Nirav,

No one is cheering 140 dead kids. What I am seeing is mostly indifference to the fact that those kids died. Where there is no indifference is the background of the killing. The dead kids are just a statistic in the larger context.

It is the context that you seem to be missing nearly entirely.

Oh ye master of ingliss, all i've done is express my opinion on the gloating. you are welcome to disagree. At no point in time did I ask you to stop posting or cry/express solidarity or whatever.

I wonder why your getting riled up so much with me posting here ?

Pratyush,

there are many posts with a scorecard,wanting more, calling them zygotes, them deserving to die because they will hate India anyway when they grow up and so much more.

I simply pointed out that its in very bad taste. We can do better !

Yeah. I however think its alarming. To say that kids of PAjis "deserve to die" ..

anyway, no point having a full fledged jingo battle.

Nirav,

Choose your enemies well, for it is they who you will become. In that I am with you.

But we did not chose this enmity, we did not go into some ones home and try to take over it. So I don't care if some Paki kid dies as a result of the policies of the TSP.

Mods,
my unread posts pointer position seems to be always stuck & doesnt get updated even after I read the posts. I find that only in the Military forum, & not in the Gen Disc forum. This has been the case for the last week or so.

Good question. Answers would be interesting unless there are some groups under Indian control. Then it is obvious to those who are pulling the strings of the useful groups. I hope there are some sUtradhArIs on our (Indian) side.

forgot to add, the malware were only coming while accessing BRF and not any other site. Even accessing BR main page it was detecting malware. Further digging revealed this perticular malware had installed 2 unauthorized add-ons on my firefox browser. Hope it is just my computers and not bot in the forum site.

three years ago I camped out in a hospital in massa for a couple of weeks waiting for my mom to be operated up on. BRF was blocked saying with a message from filter that was installed by the hospital which said "we block all military sites".

My 2 naya paisa.

The existence of a closed forum is to stretch boundaries. Express stuff that you wouldn't otherwise. This may have the side-effect of antagonizing some but I'd say this is a worthwhile trade-off.

Requests to mass-delete probably means that the content may have impact on "real life" on non-BR people. If requester explains reason for request by email to mods and they are satisfied, soo-sai is ok.

My take: Life is finite and freedom of expression is one of the few things that make life meaningful.
