When I joined , there were only 700 members here. In this two years I think, quality of posts and threads in the forum have deteriorated without much improve in trafic. There are less defence or strategic subjects. But threads intended to politicalor religious mud throwing are more common. As an example, there have been several threads on Gandhiji. many members who did not support his ideology gave their opinions openly but none of them dared to address him ' Naked Fakir' or 'Spineless Moron' or did not last here after doing such things. Threads with political orientation are very common nowadays and very often these threads turn dirty. There should be complete ban on using abusives against any personality irrespective of nationality or religion because that is not the way to go on. If we dont follow it strictly we will have no difference with some Pakistani forums. Even if you want to discuss about Zaid Hameed you can very well show the mistakes and make fun aswell. But just saying "...That Paki ......" does not add anything new (because everyone knows that already) nor it maintain the quality. Mods should be careful whether members are providing valid references in support of their specific claims in threads or posts. Doing it the forum can be kept cleaner as it was earlier.
