    Yeah Mr. trackwhak, I don't remember filming our sexpades, so for you to know where my tongue lies...............you little peeping Tom!:whip:
    I didn't know beauty contest involves using tongues. You must have spent hours together peeping inside green rooms.

    ON a serious note. You first line in your post makes you eligible for an infraction and then you will blame the mods for it. And for the rest of gibberish, you can start @pmaitra hate club, not that you will get sufficient members but you will have a blast. Include @Singh as convener. @Yusuf as treasurer and @Ray retaining the post of Chairmanship for all I care.

    And why do you think internet policeman should have any real authority in the real world? And how would that help?

    I could have replied to you in the same language that you used in your opening remark, I have desisted from it should be taken other wise.

    Whether I am defending him or standing up for him, or in what sense have I written it is a expression, I have made it within the rules of this forum. If you don't like it you can use your tongue :taunt:

    On whom? Hafta collecting India Policeman. Who too has a weekly target of hafta collection.:thumb:

    And now blame the moderator who will take action against your post. Typical behavior.

    BTW keep your inbox empty, @trackwhak is going to send you an invitation for @pmaitra hate club free membership.

    BTW Ghazni ( 5 minute memory loss) I didn't take the name of those two people. You exhumed them from their grave ( one from watery grave) and brought them into the discussion.

    Also, the slang net on this site is a bitch, right? Doesn't permit you from writing those slang, all the fun is lost.:toilet:. Grow up kid. Even if you use them would hardly have any effect on me. Nice try though!

    The purpose of DFI is lost if somebody is cheer leading for Putin? Care to explain. And what do you call the aggregation of ideas and opinions of a congregation of free speaking anonymous posters over the internet. What is their purpose?

    I know you don't like them. You have made yourself clear on this amply. But why it affects you if somebody is cheer-leading for somebody? It's not that opinions expressed here will have a effect on ground. No Indian is going to fight in Ukraine Period.

    Had somebody here were preaching Jihadi mindset, then it would have been a concern, as it might indoctrinate a few and they might land up in Syria or Iraq.

    Nobody is going to refer to this site or the views and expressions of it's members as far as Ukraine crisis is concerned.

    This is a virtual world. The post here are not a reflection of a person. One may just write a point to tease you or pull your leg, knowing your pressure points.

    It hurts if somebody misuses his or her authority, and I am not judging it. But, thank god it's in virtual world, and not in real world where misuse of power may ruin your life.

    Your posts got deleted, you served a temporary ban etc. but, as long as you feel attached you can come back here and as long as others appreciate your presence, read your posts, reply to it, like it. Otherwise there are greener pastures.

    I don't really make it like a preaching. Be happy and go lucky.

    PS. Do you think in DK thread I was angry on you or USA? Hell no. I posted my views, got challenged and I accepted it. And it continued. So is the case for posters in the Ukraine thread.

    These are grey areas and our acceptance or denial makes no speck of difference.

    Slightly off topic.

    I checked a forum where there were lot of "Military Professionals" mostly from US/Israel etc.

    Even though they seems to be quite knowledgeable and were adding value of their experience but a lot of time they simply used to get abusive specially if someone asks direct questions to the policies of US.People who doesn't subscribe to their views is a "commie". They seems to be some 40/50/60 odd years old retired and disgruntled old Military folks who went through some hard time in service/battle and now having a Field day as internet fanboys.

    Your post is relevant to the thread. I'll consider opinions of anybody if well-stated. I don't see the point of thread titles here like "Are V-necks gay?" or "Why is my life so meaningless?" To me US foreign and defense policies seem weak and unfocussed so have no urge to defend them.
    Yeah, older people get intolerant because they think they've heard it all. I would not remain on DFI after 2.5 years if it didn't have a lot to offer.

    As to the topic, it is so odd to me to see a moderator become so enamored with Putin that he loses his own national identity and agitates for Russia to the extreme. Russians are masters of propaganda and don't need help from amateurs. In my opinion, India is not going to move forward by looking for another country, any country, to carry its water. The belief that US in the past somehow betrayed India and India must now seek help from its only friend Russia is just sad. Should India not ever stand on its own?

    I hope everyone enjoyed an opportunity to vent.

    Unacceptable behaviour (inexhaustive list):
    • If you insult a female member of this forum by commenting about her "tits" (sic.), expect to be infracted.
    • If you indugle in race-baiting, expect to be infracted.
    • If you have no argument to offer, and constantly abuse or make personal attacks, expect to be infracted.
    • If you write in SMS language, expect to be infracted.
    • If you make disparaging comments about this forum, expect to be infracted.
    • If you make serious accusations against anyone, and if you are asked to substantiate it, you should do it.You cannot lie and get away with it. DFI keeps a metaphorical "paper-trail" of conversations, and everything can be proven. Dishonesty will not be tolerated, and expect to be infracted.

    If you find any post objectionable, even if it is by a moderator or administrator, report it. A copy of that post will be availale to all staff members. You may not assume the role of a self-styled adjudicator of what is "right" and what is "wrong."

    A moderator is under no obligation to agree with anyone, or subscribe to anyone's views, and that is no excuse to resort to behaviour that violates the forum rules. A moderator is also a member, and is entitled to his views. A moderator has the responsibility not to stoop to the level of the offender, by retaliating with similar behaviour that violate the forum rules; however, he may issue infractions.

    Leniency:
    Moderators are often lenient, and sometimes issue warnings. Some members choose to ignore them and continue to violate the forum rules. The moderator wishes to give out the message of leniency; unfortunately, the message that goes out is that such type of behaviour is acceptable. Repeated violations will only take away the motivation to be lenient.

    Each one of the examples listed above has happened in DFI, and in many cases, ignored as a mark of leniency. It has only emboldened the concerned members to indulge in more of such behaviour.

    Washing dirty linen in public:
    Public criticism of staff is not allowed. There is a report option. Why do some members not use that? Is it because that member has no substantial point to make? If you are tired of getting repeated infractions, then review your conduct. Constantly berating the moderator and talking about "credibility" will get you nowhere.

    Finally, a word of wisdom, from another moderator:
    Thread closed, except for staff.

    As a senior citizens and as one who has handled many a 20 year old, I am sure you have the resilience to weather all types of angst that little boys may harbour.

    Look I am a Moderator, and even so, there has been a whole lot of muck thrown at me, including personal ones. I could have easily used my Mod powers in pique. Well, if I did that, then I would be as juvenile and immature as the bloke who got personal and foul mouthed.

    One has be of sterner stuff, more so those who have faced real battles on the front-line or MOUT.

    On the issue 'slavish devotion to Putin', that maybe your angst against Russia being an American, but in India, it is not felt so. Putin and Russia is kosher. Even Mao is adored by some.

    As I have told you earlier also, we are a very open forum, wherein all types of views are allowed. Watch the posts of some of the Chinese, who badmouth India. And they still survive and merrily get about their business! Pakistanis, survive and battle on! Neo, is one of the frontrunners, in this class.

    Tolerance and courage to face up to adversarial comments is the watchword of the Forum.

    As a military man, I am sure you would know that knowing the adversary's tactics and mindset is absolute paramount to win battles and then the war. Therefore, adversarial thoughts should be most welcomed so that one knows how the others 'tick'.

    If we are to allow posts and threads that parrot only thoughts and type of thinking that coincide with ours, then we might as well talk to ourselves and remain ignorant of what is happening around us.

    I assure you that your 'Reports' have caught the attention of the Mod Team. They have been debated most vociferously and fairly. I cannot violate the confidentiality, but I can say what was decided was done most democratically and fairly.

    I agree that there are Mods who are active than others. And there is me, who likes to play the course since brain activity through adversarial repartee keeps Alzheimers away. It takes all types to make the world.

    But let us look it this way. If all the Mods were off to sleep, this forum will become the Tower of Babel. Therefore, one has to thank those Mods who at least try to keep some semblance of discipline around these parts.

    You would be the best person to understand that, having held the top rank of your Army in your class, that those who are disciplinarians can hardly be loved.

    My advice to all is Patience and Tolerance.

    You win some, you lose some.

    Part of life.

    Have you recently been in the company of Mamata Bannerjee?

    You seem to be caterwauling total bunkum.

    Let us not call all henpecked just because you seem to be so wherein you are talking at sixes and sevens.

    @trackwhack really helped out DFI in our time of need but he thinks just because of that he owns us.
