Mods, since the Epics thread or the Movies thread or the L&M thread or indeed even the Post Report feature are not the right place to ask:
Please let me know why TKiran can continue with continuous nonsense and abuse while the rest of us get sermons?
Kindly enroll us in the Friends and Family Program that allows all of us to also obtain the Sishupala^n free pass card that TKiran seems to be getting.

Dear moderators,
I've repeatedly communicated to you my request for getting a Perma ban.
3 months back,I'd made a similar request. You banned me only after I abused a mod.I had no choice but to abuse a mod rather than you guys giving me a dignified exit.

I'm at the same point again, wherein I'm *requesting* you to Perma ban me.Please note I'm not asking for ID deletion which I understand taxes the forums database.

Please grant me this. I do not wish to disrupt, but the only other way for me to go out shouldn't be abusing a mod and creating a ruckus just to get banned.

I most certainly will, if you guys leave me no choice.
Cheers.

I couldn't resist asking you - why don't you just not post ? The simplest option isn't it ? Is a perma ban a medal you want to display on your wall or something. I don't mean to be critical, infact I did agree with a some of your points in the earlier fracas but seriously whats this drama of demanding a ban. Just don't come on the site.

AK sir,

Is asking for a Perma ban equivalent to asking for a Param Vir chakra ?

I do lurk on br to read up on quality posts. But then when one comes across the usual garbage,If my ID is banned, atleast I won't in a position to "poop" over all threads.

Shiv Saar has mentioned in the feedback thread earlier, that if someone wants to leave, why make it an ego tussle ?

I don't think I'm asking too much.

Just resist the urge to post when you come across the 'usual garbage'. Why waste your time and effort and why plead with moderators for a ban. Take Japa your istha devta's name and relax. Just a suggestion.

I appreciate your suggestion, sir. Thank you. :)

I'd made a conscious decision 13 years back to associate with BR.

Now , I've made a similar conscious decision to disassociate with BR. I need to see this through. If I need to burn every last bridge, I will. I'm not calling for an ID deletion, just an inability to post.

Apologies in advance for the disruption I may cause.

^^^^^^
It is easy to permanently delete a member. During the deletion process, the phpBB software will ask what to do with all of the member's posts. These can be permanently deleted with one click, or all henceforth assigned to another member. For this purpose (of having other's posts ascribed to them, after a member gets banned); a singular account can be set-up and named perhaps "Compendium XMPs" for 'Ex-Member's Posts'.

Contact me for screenshots on how to do this with phpBB. It's been a while for me, but I have done it, and I know it's a standard feature.

The passion. We just have different ways of going about it and expressing it. BRF is a microcosm of India onlee. You have crazies, grandstanders, intellectuals, romantics, fanatics, academics, pseudo liberals and one Admiral :)

But we are all patriots. We all love our country and wish nothing but the best for her. We all have our opinions and are unashamed to state it. We fight like cats and dogs, at times we hate each other, at times we ignore each other but hell we cannot live without each other. How many of us can live without BRF for a day? And one passes away (I miss B Harry), we lose a bit of ourselves.

We Are Bharat Rakshaks!

Just pooped on the anniv. td. We've not had a good BR "do" for some time with distinguished guests like we did in the "olden days".Names mentioned in that poop.
For the sake of brevity I propose that we gather in number at Goa early next yr. when the next Defexpo takes place.3 months+ time to get organised.Let's try and make it a memorable time-friends, feni,fillies,.......you get my drift!

Paging @shiv sir.

I need to discuss something with you that I don't want to share on the open forum. All I can say here is that it is sort of related to what we discuss here at BRF. Can I email you on the id you had shared during the Aero India BRF meet?

Mods.pl warn Viv. or close chapter on him.He is incapable of objective analysis.I gave just given a v.detailed analysis of the two upgrades for 41 M2Ks and 67/69 MIG-29s.It now turns out that apart from the $2B+ we've paid Dassault, HAL requires a further $900M, never revealed thus far making the cost per aircraft $75M each! This too to take 12 years to upgrade.This extra cost is now an item of dispute between HAL and the IAF affecting the upgrade programme.

In comparison all 67/69 MIG-29s have been upgraded for just $900M using "90%" raw materials.This may explain why we want ex-Malaysian MIGs in a barter deal for SU-30 spares, being cost- effective .These are hard facts anyone can obtain them on the Net.

V cannot comprehend the huge discrepancy between two approx. equal upgrades specswise , the huge costs of M2K upgrades and enormous time frame too.This severly impinges upon the IAF's upgrade programme and budget. Withoug trying to understand the issues involved he continues to attack me like a rabid dog .His personal animosity is deplorable and must be ended once and for all.If he is allowed to continue with these attacks without refuting my posts with facts then BRF has reached the sewer.I have not attacked him thus far and can easily resort to attacking him in like manner but have better things to do .I believe BRF is a forum for intelligent debate not a battleground for streetfights and abhor behaviour fit for mongrels and guttersnipes.

Please end this behaviour from him once and for all, he has also been openly warned in a td. Earlier.

Philip, I have recommended both you and Viv to put each other on your ignore lists in the Nuclear submarines thread. I don't think he has responded to any of your posts after that. Indranil has warned everyone not to discuss other posters. If there are any offending posts since then we have missed, please report them.

Philip wrote:I have not attacked him thus far and can easily resort to attacking him in like manner but have better things to do .I believe BRF is a forum for intelligent debate not a battleground for streetfights and abhor behaviour fit for mongrels and guttersnipes.

That is not true. You have called him all sorts of names on the submarines thread, worse than what he called you. Please put him on your ignore list. I will tell him the same.

Here is the message I have posted while reporting my own post
I am reporting my own message along with a prayer that someone pays attention. The last time a friend wanted to register - it took 3 months.

I met a gentlemen called *** ***in the Chennai indology conference who has just retired from ***. He is a gold mine of information - having worked on *** and ***. He tried to register with BRF (he has been a lurker) and this is the email he sent me:

"Dear Shiv,
I tried to register with BR but found that the site doesn't accept public email addresses such as gmail. I have no other email address since leaving ***. I have had this issue in the past (couldn't register with *** email or public email addresses), and gave up trying to register.
Can the BR admins make an exception? "


This is an utter shame. I am requesting that someone responds to me. We need such people and not trolls. What do you want me to do to get this man registered?

In the past we had lot of problems due to free email with trolls etc. Hence public accounts are disabled.
However being Indians there are exceptions to every rule!!!
Especially when it comes recommended by someone of your stature.

Suraj,

Mort, it's not good enough to point fingers elsewhere. You're among the biggest culprits at such posting in this thread and elsewhere (e.g. economy, GST threads). But you could do better, and should just post to the best of your knowledge rather than complain.


When we do get into a discussion with details contrary to what has been posted, then that discussion has been shut down on the grounds of being thread derailment. Otherwise threads are positive reinforcement of group-think. If you don't like my posts, then simply say so. It is a private forum and I understand.

Can I know who deleted my comment in Understanding US thread and why it violated what rule that apparently does not apply to other posts in that thread?

If you are going to allow domestic US thread, then is it going to be all deep state this, deep state that..and basically a rehash of whatever is running on fox news ..an example being

"The Deep State is in the Just-iss Dept. Sessions, the bumbling idiot KKK grand dragon, recused himself and left Deep State actors Rod Rosenstein and Free Biscuit director Andrew McCabe hire Mueller. Now they've started the witch hunt against the Donald. Just-iss Dept. secret meetings, 50K deleted texts, and FISA abuse. The whole thing is looking like a false flag operation"
