Lately there has been a lot of interesting posts on here which turn into racist arguments- ie. Someone asking how to learn to speak Arabic and a 'Gypsy wedding'.
Why does it have to turn out into racist threads instead of good old banter?
I despise racism and am sure 99.9% do too, I love a good old row but not when it concerns creed or colour.
no doubt this will be spammed before anyone can comment

Unfortunately some people post to raise a reaction and view that as entertainment in their sad little world

I will be Debbie Mcgee- Tell me Debbie, what first attracted you to millionnaire Paul Daniels, I loved that interview:thumbsup:

I agree wholeheartedly. OP's of such threads should also be held accountable imo if it seems clear that the threads are inviting trouble. Posting a 'racial' thread and then walking away, is, at the very least, suspect.

Just completed it.

Truly awesome game, had held off due to the shouts of "AVERAGE", but I think it was just the youngsters who couldn't grasp the concept of a game actually having a story...

I'm doing my bit for world peace and date every creed, colour and religious persuasion :thumbsup:

Can't abide bigots.....it just stems from ignorance.

That's the one:thumbsup:
I was too cold to remembr her name and it seemed too lame to write 'Paul Daniels' wife.'
It makes me laugh here and now. Brilliant.:giggle:

racism is somthing that will never go away no matter what happens...i spoke to one member on here who openly admited to being racisit for no other reason than they jst didnt like their skin colour..( have the proof incase said member starts )
but it really is just imature and petty especially by older members age wise i mean

you may have different views but their is certain ways of putting them across and in a racisit manner isnt one of them

i hope my comments on the wedding post didnt offend anyone, i am not a racist person i just object to people not paying their way and being a drain on local councils once they move on.
#23
tbh although i think racism is definitely wrong, in the said "gypsy" thread i dont think anyone was offended, and i really enjoy the debate

Yep, point taken. Not always - of course. But sometimes. And it's the sometimes we need to look out for. :thumbsup:

ppl always posting threads like "is this not a happy forum?"

they need to realise this is a deals website, why are u so bothered, go to an actual chat forum if u dont like hotukdeals misc section, it makes up under 10% of the site.

ill use u for instance skusey

u dont like bg1...everyone knows that..yet ull post in all of his threads (because u think hes a troll) something like....

"ur a troll, u just want attention"

now if bg writes something and u quote him and reply, what do u think ur doing there?!.......ur giving him attention arent u...so u believe that someone is posting negatively just to grab peoples attention and that they would stop if ppl ignored him.....yet ur doing the opposite of that lool.

Its really not hard to put someone on ignore, so put bg on ignore, ur recent posts have been accusing bg1 of being a troll, i think everyone knows that bg1 posts the way he does to get a reaction but what ur doing everytime is "trolling on the trolls" which is just as much of a bannable offense as it is to constantly troll on this forum.....

i seriously think u shud stick bg1 on ur ignore list, maybe lom and thesaint if they annoy u also (even me if this post annoys u) its just the internet, why dont u just take a step bk and realise how worked up ur gettin over something that really shudnt mean anything to ur life.

There are distinctions between certain caravan dwellers that we need to take into account.......so certain remarks can be thought of as being racist.

I'm not a big fan of non tax payers who live beyond the law but we should remember not to generalise :)

didnt miss the post, i reported the post, however i dont think anyone on here was offended because it was directed at them, they just found there behaviour offensive

also since when have gypsies been a race?
#31
I feel I had better say something as it appears my post earlier is connected to this. It really is quite pathetic that asking for info on learning a new language can cause such an outcry. I agree with the OP that racism should not be tolerated anywhere and not just on here. Just to clarify for some, I was not dropping the post just to incite a reaction from people. There is a genuine interest in learning a wonderful new language.

but we can be offended on behalf of others because we have empathy, and because we vehemently oppose such intolerant views of any group of people
#33
I hate gypsys.

Since gypsys are not a race I am not being racist.

And btw I'd also like to make clear that I haven't even viewed your thread so not sure why it was even mentioned. Thanks for the clarification though :thumbsup:

No, I know :) It was more aimed at the person you were suggesting to do it, who I hope won't. I only put really offensive people on my ignore list, and I hope I'm not an offensive person to most people. erm... :thinking:
