Not at the expense of creating an environment on BR in which this forum serves as an oil-droplet "dar-ul-jingos" where people holding contrary opinions disliked by mythical "jingos" can be vilified and defamed in less than parliamentary language. What people in the dar ul jingo do not see or are not bothered about is that there are others with other views who are equally not traitors who get put off and stop visiting or posting on a thread making a particular thread give a false impression of "broad consensus", when all that has occurred is a driving out of contrary opinion holders by foul language, sarcasm, sheer crowd pressure and defamation .The situation is not unlike the way minorities or people who think differently are cleared from God's holy places like Pakistan or Makkah.
It was the moderators duty to ensure that this did not happen and they did not - with myself being a prime culprit in failing to see the degeneration from a thread for many views to a place for those who are shunned everywhere else to say whatever they wanted about anyone whose opinions were disliked. BRF then became a kind of mirror image of various fora or other sites in which disgruntled people could collect and vent and post links to other fora in which people were doing the exact opposite thing of collecting and venting about things they could not say on BRF.
Long ago I put an end to this "alter ego" relationship of BRF with Pakistani sites. But we now have enough people sick of BR to have "wars" just like two Pakistani sites used to rival each other. This is a downslide for BRF. It was fortuitous that India Forum did not go that way. But there are new places which collect people who have been driven out of here either by banning or by crowd pressure who go and snipe on there and cause counter sniping on here and much giggling and fun and people who believe it is all tamasha. It may well be tamasha with people taking themselves so seriously - but I see the degeneration of BRF and its insiduous and needless "rivalry" with other sites as anything BUT tamasha.
This must stop.
