      My friend are you in contact with @anant_s ?

        No, but I could get in touch; he keeps posting to my (unused) Facebook profile. Want me to ask him to get in touch?

        I'm much better, thanks to the care that some good friends gave me. I move around the house, and make very short trips outside, and was told I would be better than I was in 90 days.

        Kind of you to ask, thank you very much.

      However, I have looked back on old threads, and it appears that there was a time when member with vastly different views could exchange ideas civilly, despite disagreements. Even when I first joined, I found most member willing to hear different ideas, even those with whom I did not get along. That has unfortunately changed last month.
      1. Joe Shearer
        Joe Shearer
        That has changed over the last three years. Some good things happened; the Moderators chased out the toxic elements among Indian members. Some bad things happened; first, they threw out the baby with the bathwater, and managed to annoy serious-minded positive-minded Indian members; second, they were very lax about Pakistani and Chinese toxic elements.

        The point when I woke up to this reality was when some Pakistanis were cheering the deaths of Pulwama victims with no action taken against them.

        That sort of thing, and (member) Imran Khan's coarse reaction to S Ldr Varthaman's bloodied face, is really sickening. I have absolutely no wish to be seen on a thread with that kind of perverted behaviour.

      I have figured that out a while ago. Now I have stopped caring to be honest. With that being said, it is fun to trigger trolls so I am just going to get in whatever I can until I get banned.

        Joe Shearer
        That's personal for every member to decide, how to deal with the forum, and I can't comment on your choice.
        It isn't my choice.

      As the thread is based on Urdu poetry we can make exceptions on such threads, much like members are allowed to post in their language on selected threads...take Chinese or Turkish sub-forums for example.

        Amazing that simple consistent measures in moderation without pandering to any pseudo-patriotic claptrap can have such beneficial effects for all concerned. :)

        Thank you so much. I missed you and those who are of your way of thinking; common sense and a sense of fair play are so rare!

        Unfortunately, the reason I left, threats of official prosecution made by a Hyderabad-based khaki chaddi, hasn't really gone away.

        I hope to stick to military history, and to avoid social comments; no point in those latter.

        To get on the list, you have to be really nasty, talk about India being the land of rapes, say something untrue about either or both of Tejas and the Arjuna battle tank, make some remarks about Dalits and the others, weep about the miserable state of Muslims and their imminent death, make cheap comments about our soldiers, sailors and airmen.....

        Reasonably good, considering that I am an obese 67 years old (66 years, 11 months and 22 days, actually) with high blood pressure and OSA.

        More important, how are you? Sometimes the half-understood snippets about you are very, very worrying.

        Will do Joe, though it may take some time. Part 3 is a little too long, i have to read a lot of content, Hamood-ur-rehman commission report and etc, etc. I will make sure to finish it as early as i can.
