Re: Please behave!

Well said Musthaq, I have been around this forum a long time and I do look on every few days but I must admit with some of the calibre of comments being posted I have not felt inclined to get involved. This has always been a well managed, thoughtful and interesting forum and is strong enough to overcome the disruptive elements. We have excellent moderators and a core of intelligent supportive members. Patience, respect and a sense of humor has always been present ... let it come ot the foreground again

Re: Please behave!

I think they know who they are and it does bring down the forum and stop members commenting which we can clearly see now which is a shame.It also brings others down to their level by feeling a need to defend ones self. I for one have had to defend many assuptious remarks about where i am and what i do and having my experiences questioned by members you would expect support from given their position within Turkey and knowledge they should have. Any way lets hope they heed the warning and produce some threads of their own and answer questions in a positive manner as oppossed to waiting for a reply they can ridicule

Re: Please behave!

Phew what a relief, perhaps now the air will be cleared and things can get back to normal. I must admit I have also been reluctant to comment in case it left me open to ridicule.

Re: Please behave!

Thanks Mushtaq for trying to get the forum back to its original purpose. I have found some of the "discussions" of the last couple of weeks very depressing & was beginning to wonder what we had got ourselves into. If some of these ex-pats are typical of those moving to Turkey then I think I'll stay in the UK. Some postings have been really nasty when the purpose of this forum is to try to help each other and share information about living in Turkey. Rants about other matters should be taken elsewhere.

Re: Please behave!

Mushtaq

I would like to offer my support to you in trying to bring the forum back to its original concept. Although I am no shrinking violet the agressiveness and sarcasm directed at some of the members by certain people has prevented me from posting on the forum.

I have read some excellent advice on the forum but not followed it up as I did not wish to get involved in childish arguments.

May the forum now go from strength to strength!

Re: Please behave!

what also brings this forum down are the ıdiots who post nonsense and then complain when its corrected, the people who say they are broad minded and then complain about the sense of humour of others and the people who defend someome for making offensive postings but then complain when its done to them. Heres three basic rules for you 1. if you post crap expect someone to correct it. 2. if you dont like someones humour shrug your shoulders and read something else and 3. dont live in a glass house and throw stones.
