Exclamation Irish fights on the forum

It seems to me that most personal and nasty fights that we have had on the forum are related to the Irish politics.

This is a predominately Turkish forum but we have a wide range of subjects discussed in pretty civilised manner except it seem anything to do with Irish political / religious divide.

Can I please request that we keep these sort of threads to minimum and if there must be any threads then they either have to be kept civil or they will be deleted.

I have no idea of what the fights are about and to be honest not interested to know either, what I am interested in is having a forum that is friendly and place to have discussions in civil manner without getting personal and Juvenile.

Re: Irish fights on the forum

Let's hope your post is heeded Mushtaq. It might also help the mood of the forum if the Irish jokes stopped (which would in turn save me time searching the forum for Irish jokes and replacing the word 'Irish' for 'English' and the like).

By the way, to those who really don't understand what was going on with the Neil Lennon thread: It was about something called sectarianism.

Lennon used to be the captain of the Northern Ireland football team (whose supporters are virtually 100% Protestant).

Because Neil Lennon is Catholic and went on to play for Celtic (whose supporters are virtually 100% Catholic) some Northern Ireland supporters wanted him out of their team to the extent that he was threatened with death if he didn't leave.

He stopped playing for Northern Ireland; that is, he was driven out by sectarian bigots.

It is obvious that Neil Lennon himself is not sectarian if he was, why on earth would he (a Catholic) have chosen to play for Northern Ireland?

He has since become manager at Celtic and, like other managers such as Jose Mourinho and Alex Ferguson, is passionate and wears his heart on his sleeve.

But unlike Mourinho and Ferguson that passion has led to sectarian bigots sending him live bullets through the post, beating him up while on a night out, sending viable nail bombs to him through the post and last night's attack at the football match.

Thankfully, the vast majority of people in Scotland and Ireland (from all sides) have unreservedly condemned the on-going sectarian campaign against this man.

It's a pity I can't say 'all' people have.

We still have some way to go.

Re: Irish fights on the forum

Pineapple you should go over to where the movie was made-beautiful area and very popular with tourists. The amount of locals who say they were extras in the film would give it a cast of about 10,000!!!!

Re: Irish fights on the forum

I should have said their relatives-honestly everyone claims a connection with the movie

The bridge in a famous scene in the movie is the focal point for the many local tours

But why should they stop John? If you stopped being so sensitive and realised that people make jokes about all topics and all nationalities there would be no need to, you know it is a fact of life that people take the p**s. You also know that sometimes people alter them to wind you up.

Most people with a modicum of inteligence knows that where a person comes from, if they are fat or thin or whatever does not alter the inteligence of said person and it may well be helpful to you, if you do not understand humour, that it may be best for you and your feelings if you did not venture into threads containing humour. (please don't read that as condecending, it is no way meant to be)

I do not mean this as an argument or in any way a slant on your character, but you really do need to lighten up.

If I see a Yorkshire joke and it is funny I will laugh at it because I know it is not a personal slant on me as a Yorkshire person, if I read one of your English jokes I will laugh and will indeed give you thanks if I think it worthy, but I do not take it personally (you may well mean it personally I do not know) because I do not read them as a personal slur on me or my nationality.

If a thread is opened with the intent of undermining Ireland and slurs are made I would fully expect you to jump in with nationalistic fervor, the same as I would but the JOKE section is just that. I know that you could deem them racist etc, but I think you get my point.

Re: Irish fights on the forum

There are too many people ready to jump on the sectarianism/bigotry bandwagon and label every comment as such...this leads to the arguments.

I don't know the ins and outs of what happened to Neil Lennon yesterday..but any physical violence on anyone should be condemned from all sides.

The original thread in question was nothing to do with Ireland...it was about an attack on a football manager.
