There is a difference between that and planting slanted "opinions" in place in order to harass. He is no different from your typical YouTube troll, check out
the RT comment section and you'll see what I mean.
So what you are saying is that Nick does not actually believe what he is saying and is just saying what he says to get a rise out of you?
I don't agree.
I think he believes what he says is true... likely all his interactions with other races have been negative and he doesn't understand that black people are just white people with different coloured skin.
Very true, but you really think *he* represents the "other opinion" on this site?
There will be as many opinions as there are members on this site... I am not going to ban members because other members don't agree with their beliefs.
If however, a member starts abusing other members for their beliefs then that is grounds for banning, but even then I will look at the situation and talk to the people involved first before making such a decision. I will likely also talk to Vlad and George and RP where I can because I take banning seriously.
And while I hate to say this more than anything to date GarryB, it wouldn't be wrong to state that this site already is in a "Yes Man" vortex.
Go to the NATO section and check out all the negative threads and comments, and go to the Russian sections and find the opposite... BUT*, this is called "Russian Military Forum" for a reason.
It is in the title... Russian Military Forum... of course there are going to be rather more Russia strong supporters than NATO or US strong supporters. That is not to say there are no Americans or western europeans on this forum.
the real issue is not banning... I don't ban 20 pro US strong crew every day to make sure it stays pro Russia, the simple fact is that the US strong crew don't tend to stay very long because most people want to talk about Russian stuff and they are not interested in that.
Just look at MP.net... they have a photos thread and a photo discussion thread where they keep all their Russian strong crew and even then they like to ban a few every week just to thin their numbers.
Quite frankly I am surprised how little stick the US gets on this forum considering the nasty way it treats Russia and many of her allies despite claiming to be the moral centre of the universe.
If I bombed your home town and killed your neighbours and family and friends would you promise to be polite to me?
Oh, when it comes to abuse, at least I'm not claiming he has sand up his v*****a..
Because he is not being a little girl about it... it is probably between his ears...
Hearing other points of view is great, which is why it is nice to have people like TR1 to talk about Ukraine, or Python on issues like this or Dutchy on different things as well. There is a difference between having an opinion and abusing your right to have one.
So you can disagree on a few things but not big things held dear in the west?
How exactly would that work?
Look as far as I am concerned what people talk about it is not my job to moderate. I am a bouncer, not an editor. Behave and follow the rules and there will be no problems. If you don't like what someone says state that and why you disagree and leave it at that. Be civil or I will ban you... well I will probably warn you first, but you get the picture right?
Also, you might have seen in the streets of major Russian cities the lawlessness that Hindoos, Muslims and other dark skinned illegal immigrants have created. Its second nature to them. They do the same in the UK as well.
That is interesting because we had an ethnically Indian Mayor for a couple of years and she did a really good job... there was no great increase in disorder or lawlessness.
Then we had an asian mayor and he did a good job too.
You have answered your own question. The % of blacks and asians is extremely low in NZ, that's why NZ is not a dangerous place like Europe, where these blacks, hindoos, muslims are big time criminals.
Yet our prisons are full and they are letting people out early to free up space...
I will admit Europe is a dangerous place... a girl in my class in school went to London in the late 1980s and was murdered... had her throat cut... a bloody white person did it.
When I walk down the streets in Moscow or St.Petersburg people look at me and feel safe, knowing fully well that I am English/European and hence will not assault them. Now the same people finds some asians, blacks on the streets and feels completely unsafe because dark skinned people have a history of committing violent crimes in Russia and elsewhere in Europe.
Hahahaha... they feel safer seeing you than a non white... that would suggest ignorance... have they never been to a soccer match in the UK?
Asians here in the US are actually en extremely well-incorporated group of people, I'm not sure *why* that is but it is very true.
Most of the non white people I know are nice friendly civilised people. they often have different values and beliefs that can make them seem strange at first but learning about other cultures is actually good for you... makes you question your own cultural stereotypes and bigotries.
I worked with a few Maori chaps at university and a few Asian guys as well and when told about high paying jobs the Asian guys always said they would work 80 hours a week and pay off their loans and buy houses in their first few years of work.
the Maori guys said if they earned $120 dollars an hour they would only work 3 days a week. The Asian guys thought they were lazy and I did too initially but I asked them about it and they said they could live comfortably on 3 days pay and could spend more time with their families.
they weren't lazy, they are just more family oriented/focussed.
I never had anything against gays themselves, and I never judged a person based on their sexuality. I judge them, as I judge everyone - based on their behaviour.
I agree with that... and am in the same boat too.
However at the same time, things should be discussed intelligently and without offense, without needless provocation against people born into a different race/nation/religion/sexual orientation/whatever than ourselves.
No argument here.
There still there have to be limits in place, like when it comes to members calling for all Jews/Balts/Muslims/etc... to be exterminated, or insults of any kind; that sort of thing should not be tolerated even for a second, if you want my opinion. In fact I hold a very strong opinion on this issue.
I agree, though would add that sometimes in the heat of the moment some people can let anger blind them and they will say things they wouldn't ever follow through on.
The reason is that although indeed allowing all sorts of opinions, some quite off the wall ones, etc... to be expressed on this site - does move forward diversity of opinion in one way - it also restricts diversity of opinion in the other direction; simply because many people who hold 'unpopular' views will never register and contribute.
Here I disagree. In fact I think it is the opposite... by not banning people for alternative views it encourages people with alternative views to post knowing as long as they are civil and tolerant of the views of others that they wont be banned for speaking their mind.
Equally, it means that you know where you stand with people because they are not hiding feelings they think might be unpopular.
For myself I realise many think I am anti American... I think I am very pro American and that the people in power in America are the anti Americans... I think truth, and justice should be the most important things... not just words you use when it is useful.
Some might think I am anti semetic... I think Israel was a mistake and that Zionist Jews are doing more to undermine relations with the rest of the world and Jewish people than the Nazis did in WWII.
Israel exists now however and wont go away so they need to come to some sort of agreement, but that will never happen until the Palestinians are treated as a country too, not some appendage or outgrowth of Israel.
What kind of Jew, or Muslim do you think will join this forum - just so he could be provoked and enraged constantly, having to listen to all this bile? Of course, he won't bother to join in the first place and will simply stay far-clear from this forum, along with his opinions and any knowledge he could have contributed.
If you are afraid to talk in a group because one or two of the group don't like you then there is little I can do about it.
If I ban people for being anti Zionist or homophobic many could demand I ban myself.
Banning these people... I might as well cut to the chase and ban anyone remotely anti Russian or not Russia strong... anyone who suggests a planned operational date for a weapon system is being too optimistic... ban.
What sort of forum would it be then?
each other and act in a civilised way I am happy and wont be banning people.
People are entitled to their opinion... you don't have to agree with me... I can't make you all be right, but I can and will make sure it is kept civilised and the rules are followed.
If you feel someone has stepped outside the rules by all means PM me and we can talk about it and I will talk about it to the member you have a problem with... there might be banning, or the member might choose to rephrase what they said and perhaps offer an apology.
It have everything to do with their economical environment of people and the political environment where people is raised. More blacks go to jails in USA.. yes.. but thats because they are in the lower end of society . had whites being the poor society and black the wealthier one ..it will be the other way..
I actually thought the US justice system was racist, but looking in to it further it is more a case of it is difficult for poor people to get a fair trial.
Majority of Russians do not support your views on entry of dark skinned people into Russia. Their sole intention is to colonize Russia. This is why even football clubs like Zenith St.Petersburg are now demanding that only WHITE players be allowed.
You are quoting the BBC and telling us what Russians think?
But with all respect I strongly disagree with the "Just copy & paste stuff. No analysis, no added value, nothing, zip." And I do not really agree when you take all Asian people as the same.
Don't take it personally... I am a white guy and I am not very creative... I bought my car... I didn't make it myself with duct tape and wire.
Stupid lazy white people scoured the globe for ideas... which they were happy to pinch from any culture and claim as their own, and then murdered people and stripped places of their valuable resources and have an air of surperiority because of that...
read my signature a thousand times... you might get it people.
