I thought BL posted his message with the best intentions. I do agree that having people flame each other serves no purpose.

Shaibal, while I also agree with you that topics should not be deleted just because of the chance that they may spark off a controversy, we must respect the mods here who are doing so much more than any of us to keep this forum running and such a great place for information.

That being said, again it is common knowledge that Pakistan sponsors (directly on indirectly) terrorism in Kashmir. If topics were to start getting censored for a reason that a lot of CDs do not seem to agree with then this forum would end up like some dictatorship.

I think you'll agree that we're not even close to being a dictatorship, otherwise all the objections posted on this thread would never have been entertained. I did not see the article myself and am not sure what prompted Garvo to delete it, I was making some general points in support of steering clear of regional / religious issues that will in the end serve no purpose. The idea isn't blind censorship, at the same time, we'll do whatever it takes to keep the purpose of this forum from getting sidetracked.

And for the record, no, I wouldn't delete an article from India today unless it seemed utterly biased and inflammatory. And the same would apply if someone posted a negative article about India from a Pakistani mag. or daily.

BL stop talking crap & nonsense. You have made a small issue look like a Nuclear War. That was a great picture you painted.
Instead focus on improving Moderation. You have no right to delete anybody's thread - on the basis of somebody's complaint (without any judgement). Then why call it a Forum.
How long this Site is up ? Is there any single thread here, in the past, where there has been Indo-Pak mud-slinging ? Or I should credit you for that.
I have seen people coming up with adverse comments about others (either intended or not-intended). Well, as long as it is justified - people would read otherwise they ignore.
I have read your posts where you used objectionable language (for whatever reason). It is time - you improve.



Let's get something straight! Every moderator on this forum has the right to delete any material they deem objectionable. Read the terms of usage of this site and if you don't agree, stop participating. Secondly, don't try to be a wise-ass again with me or any moderators on this forum or I'll ban you immediately next time.

Guys,

The bottom line the particular post should not have been deleted for the very facts like;

2X2 =4 and is always 4, whether one agrees to it or not, it can never change as well. If Mr. Fahad thinks it is worng then he should not read and or keep quite about it.

My English may not be perfect but I am not that dumb NOT to understand or interprete what he was conveying. and that is what I objected to (in my earlier post).
There is always a better way to convey one's displeasure or disagreement.

Just because some one has an objection on an article/post in the media or on this forum, people should not stop discussing / talking / posting there opinions on this forum.

As for the moderators, judging on an individual's comment if you delete a post, I think is NOT PROPER under any reasonable standards of understanding /judgements.

You could have asked Mr. Fahad,(if he is so patritic or cocerned about all these) to protest against the very country or the people who do such acts and becasue of whom the country's image is being tored apart and /or to go and ask the terrorists themselves to stop doing that ,since the whole community is being humilated.
Can he do this ? Instead of asking a forum NOT to discuss /talk about an article on that issue?

If that is the case, every Tom, Dick and Hary will say/obejct to something, so will you delete this post without having any consideration to the interest of the other world on this forum ? And it is a Shame.

Now you may/ might ban me from the forum, because I said all this,
Since YOU ARE THE BOSS... and BOSS IS ALWAYS RIGHT ?

But the fact remains . .. . .
Thank you all for reading this.

SEE moderator's language: " to be a wise-ass again "

Why GG is allowed this type of person on this board? Because he is giving free services to this website? BL has no right to use this type of language. He used many times but nobody is complaining because he is moderator.

BL, keep in mind that we all are desi.

huh? What's that supposed to mean?

I'm not kidding around when I say that we will not tolerate any wise-asses on the forum. Constructive criticism/feedback is welcome and we'll do our best to justify our position in these cases. But don't try to be a smart-ass and tell me what my rights on this forum are and are not.

Got it?

That's not fair, I responded as reasonably as I could in my first couple of posts. The banning warning was only issued in response to the language of that specific post.

Here's my last response on this post. I understand that many of you disagree with the deletion of the original article. I can't comment on that since I didn't even see it.

However, these are some general guidelines under which we'd like to and will continue to operate. I've tried to explain the justifications for these as best as I can. So let's all agree to disagree on this one.
