    Over on the Pakistan Defence Forum, I have been such a hit in dealing death to the Pakistani posters and toeing the anti-Moslem line that they have convinced themselves that I am an Indian of a nationalist, anti-Pakistani bent residing in Australia and masquerading on PDF as an Australian. Can you believe it? I of course have refuted this at length, saying that if I were an Indian I would say so and that I would not hide my nationality. But as I am an Australian, I am declaring myself as such. Did this convince them? Not a bit! One Pakistani poster who is resident in Australia is even sending me his telephone number so I can ring him to "confirm" or "prove" I am an Australian. This is unbelievable! I expect better here on DFI!

    Regardless of who you are, this is not a good idea at all. Remember this is Pakis you are dealing with.

    I'm a fair white-skinned, grey-eyed, real Anglo-Saxon, so you can forget the quotes.

    Pakistan acts as buffer between us and the volatile regions of Central Asia, why should we change that? Plus any piece of Pakistan land will come to us with Pakistani people and every Indian worth his/her salt will oppose such idea. We will not accept their offer even if they gift themselves to us on a platter. But Pakistan Occupied Kashmir is a different matter, the Indian territory which is under adverse possession of Pakistan since 1948.

    So you are on that forum too, good. A word of caution, the PM (personal message) feature of that site sends a default copy of the message to the management team of that site.

    I can relate. I am an Indian, the admins have even confirmed my IP address as coming from one of the Indian cities... yet people here repeatedly call me a pakistani just because I refuse to hate them blindly. So you and I are in the same boat, eh?

    There are many Pakistanis who overstay and 'vanish' into the Indian populace and become 'Indian'.

    There are many in South India, if you know what I mean.

    There are many who come by 'boat' but are you in the same 'boat'?

    No more than any other interested foreign party, Ray. Being here on DFI has been a big help with knowledgeable people such as yourself. One thread or post or link leads to another then another and so on and then one has a pretty good picture of the history and events of the country and region. The internet is a very good tool for the speedy acquisition of information and knowledge. It's not called the Information Superhighway for nothing!

    Ok, ladder, thanks for that. I actually joined PDF before I came here on DFI. It is more rough-and-tumble over on PDF than here, but I learn more here. People like Ray are a big help.

    Basically, if you're being a civilized and rational human being with a Pakistani, you're labeled "Indian." If you're being so with a non-Paki Muslim, you're labeled "Jew."

    I think its against forum rules to discuss about other forums.
    @Redhawk I think the perception of pakistanis is that anybody being anti pak or pro India has to be an Indian. Whats funny for me is see so many Indians on that forum, its an anti India website and we are helping them.

    To be well informed as also learn of contrarion views, one requires to visit fora that are not amenable to one's own viewpoint.

    Yes, one should not mention other fora by name.

    Most of the stuff are not related to defence and purely BS and negative stuff of Indian social conditions, its high on religion and trolling. Exposure to such views over a long period of time is not good for young or general Indian viewers.

    What you say is right.

    But it does indicate the warped mindset that prevails and you can understand how they 'tick'.

    And you can give your rejoinder and see their rebuts writhing in pathetic agony.

    And it also gets your point of view through even if they are later deleted by the Moderators.
