    No.

    Then there's hard trolling going on from people that sound familiar.

    Spot on there, especially the age thing. I'm 70 in a few weeks so I suspect that I am in the oldies vanguard around here and I am definitely getting less patient. I have been a 'high tech' salesman for 40 years so a diplomatic and persuasive manner is fairly deep in my psyche but even that is starting to fall by the wayside. Almost like my sub conscious is aware that its time here is getting shorter by the day so stop beating around the bush, just say what you think from now on.

    In a way it is like regressing back to the days when we had just learnt to think and talk, before our 'tribe' imposed its rules on us, often by force or the threat of it by our peer group and its elders.

    As to themess, from what DasVivo (thanks for the offer of help) and others have now said it looks as if I might have been zapped by a bug in the infraction system but no-one in power answered my querying it or made any effort to explain or redress the situation (I was only finally ejected not that long back as per my post above) so I can only assume that the type of contribution I made, like I make here, was not what they wanted on their site. Its a shame really as some comments and claims over there go uncorrected.

    Sometimes I do feel that this site can be a little without opposing views... a yes mans club... but to be honest I really don't enjoy the arguments that discussions descend into on some forums... and in my opinion an there is nothing more pathetic than seeing grown adults threaten each other and abuse each other on the internet.

    BTW I remember LOKOs too I have a lot of respect for that guy.... Smile though he might not like it here as it is probably too boring...  Twisted Evil

    I don't always agree with every viewpoint posted here, but for the most part, I just ignore it. For me it isn't worth making enemies, nor the hassle.

    When I say don't agree with every viewpoint, sometimes it's easy to blend dislike for American elite or Government, or who is running the government of the USA, with dislike for Americans in general.

    Which some Americans are snots, but not all.

    I don't live in Russia. therefore I have nothing against Russian government nor Pres. Putin.

    & certainly not against Russian ppl.

    & I'm not the most knowledgeable, well-read person on the forum, so I figure others know more than I do, and I also like hearing other persons' firsthand experiences.

    But I do think I do have the liberty to disagree here, if/when I want to.

    The Mess--not worth my time or effort for the most part.

    There are plenty of Americans who are not snot nosed teenagers defending Americas honour on the internet that I respect and agree with on many things.

    I personally like the American tenants of truth and justice as being the American way... sadly the government of the US thinks telling the truth and seeking justice... as opposed to just lies and revenge and violence ties the hands of an otherwise nearly omnipotent force.

    The sad fact is that rather than untying their hands... lying and seeking vengeance and revenge just makes the US look worse than the threats they try to warn us all about... the cure looks worse than the disease.

    The US government needs a leader who can step back and take a real look at what they are doing and why they are doing it... if their goal is to gain and retain power at all cost no matter what then they are no better than some of the worst villains of history and should expect the same fate.

    Anyway what I was trying to say is that the americans who do post here are civil and respectful and remind me that the people of the US are the potential solution... not the cause of the problem.

Good to see the proverbial slippery snake getting crushed under a proverbial boot.

    I agree with you about commonwealth. It will be a matter of time before he slips up and posts some terrorist propaganda which will enable the mods to nail him. It can't happen soon enough. So far he has been very careful about  openly discussing politics and only concerns himself with whining about ebil Russians bombing baby milk convoys and bakeries...

    I left this thread open to let the mp.net guys say their peace but it is about time to shut this down. We really don't need to be talking about other members of other forums. At the end of the month this is closed so say what you have to say until then.

    Long time lurker over there since late 2007, never dares to sign up as they were quite strict in debating various "inter-NATO" issues.
    But their content was solid. After many months I found NOT JUST same BUT better quality here.

    Vladimir, I apologise for having 'kick started' it again and I understand your decision to bring this to a close... I didn't wish to bring about comparisons or anything such so please do not get my intentions mistaken.

    I see our little Russian hater DForce is babbling on about "starving Russians" "increasing in numbers" and "ever increasing protests" that will end up with Putin gone and "draconian anti-protest measures" on another forum.
    He has a hard time concealing his hatred.

    I called out that piece of scum when he joined up here to troll and gather info to twist. And I'm glad other posters who had to read his rubbish elsewhere also joined in to call him out about his reasons for joining here.

    Of course he didn't.
    His modus operandi is either to make statements without the slightest bit of information, or when called on it, to provide half-truths or links that only show what he wants to portray, from the BBC (which in recent years has become openly and notoriously anti-Russian) or Ukrainian sources.

    He knows exactly what he's doing by dropping in his little comments. He had a long history of doing this elsewhere, which is why people climbed in on him when he attempted to join here.

    There are many posters out there like him, which has made even previously respectable forums impossible to visit recently.

    I don't bother posting there at all. Occasional visit, but even that is getting rarer because the same posters are allowed to sustain their same tired, old campaign of hatred.
    Criticism should be welcomed, but a sustained hate-campaign across the board is another thing altogether.

    Find out who you are not allowed to critize and you will know who rules over you.

    In entire western MSM you are not allowed to critize them which makes it more obvious who those news angecies are belonging to.

    The hasbara trolls are so active in the past 3 years online and are rampaging on indian defense forum like they did on mp nuts.

    hmm just found out my 3 month long infraction is over ... had a dig about UK's condemnation over the Litvenyenko murder by reminding them of the UK state murder of Snp Activist Willie McRae in 1985 because he was about to release his peado dossier about the peado ring in westminster of the UK elite

    http://www.express.co.uk/news/uk/541793/SNP-activist-killed-over-child-sex-files

    i reckon i will get a ban for that for showing up the hypocrisy of the UK

    Funny thing about the whole litvenyenko case is that even when dying, he didnt reveal anything.  And the dossier done, was proven to be false anyway.  So the whole thing is one giant sham.  We dont even need to point out any fallacy from UK authorities, we just need to point out the whole thing was a sham overall.
