What we see now -- "crapiest country" topic is still allowed although not favoured but personal attacks are not. Do you thing it is reasonable and expected result? I don't. Smile
 
I agree with you Anton, in that, with this new subforum certain boundaries get stretched. By allowing most anything up to this point we can now examine the responses and opinions that you, the membership, have offered. Your sentiments along with a few others have led me to move two marginal threads over to the tavern. I hope this result meets your expectations.
 
In the future, silly topics will stay in the tavern.

Thanks for your patience and understanding fellow forumers while we cleaned up a few misplaced mines. The list of topics open for discussion in this subforum remains listed on the previous page.

Before posting, you might want to brush yourself up on these rules, and please remember, while we want to promote the highest level of freedom of speech, we do focus vigorously on faul behavior, personal attacks, negative attitude etc.
 
Currently all previous blacklisted topics can now be disscussed. Members will need at least a 50 post count to participate.

Confused
 
freedom of speech or not freedom of speech?
 
or well let you know after you've posted (not before)
 
Thank you Paul - but who are "we" - or are you addressing yourself in plural?
"We" can let me know anything you might find relevant to your mission.
 
Seko and I were thrilled to spend an hour each to tidy things up after you - be thankful we both are men of patience and used to deal with (more or less innocent) juvenile provocative behavior - just for the sake of it. Wink
 
Please consider another playground next time my friend.

The 'we' is the moderators.
 
Maybe you and seko should change your user group name to Janitor.

But I still think things never got really ugly, as some think


I've been here almost 2 years now. I don't know what happened before that. I guess that the moderators have done a good job on that field + that the current Turkish lads are cool.

Can you create a topic on the turkish casualties during the 1974 war of Cyprus. It's a blacklisted topic, so i decide not to begin it somewhere else, and have it simply either deleted or moved.

What i'm intersted in is what the exact figures of turkish military casualties were during the war. I don't have any access to turkish sources here in Greece, so I beg the turkish forumers to enlighten us if they can.

Until someone else does wish to open that topic you certainly can. PM your title to me and I'll open it for you. After that you can start your posts.

How can I know that someone else wants to open this topic?
The title doesn't need much explaining. simply put "turkish losses during 1974 Cyprus war". I think that will do.

I think Seko was referring to the staff designated to this forum to do it for you, xristar - I have opened the topic. Smile
