We do, but then there is none who contribute, not even those who complain!
Sir many of us lead busy personal and professional lives (extremely busy in my case), still I find time to contribute. If you look at my profile, I limit posting to defence related topics only. Genuine contribution cannot come if people are only interested in praising themselves and their party and belittling others, that is why I wanted some politics to be controlled here so that the focus can return on defence topics.
In fact, even the amount of politics does not trouble me as much as the low quality of posts here. That is why I put forward the request of a senior section in the first place.
double post-please delete
Since those who are aware of defence matters are busy and cannot contribute, we have to depend on those who prefer other subjects, or else this forum would merely dry up.
Even those who would like to contribute would get bored with inactivity and go elsewhere.
Therefore, it is Hobson's choice.
Yet, to ensure that those who are only interested in Defence subjects, under 'New Posts', you would find 'Only Defence'.
However, if you have some suggestions, do PM Singh, Yusuf or Lurkerbaba,
Some posters are like flies, they just eat shit and bother people.
A few gripes
a) I am getting notifications from members on the ignore list. Fix it please, I do not wish to get into piss fights with fanboys and people who are incapable of a civil discussion and have the time to post a hundred times a day.
b) I see a poster by the name of Waffen SS using Nazi memorablia as his avatar. Since when did DFI started allowing glorification of genocidal [email protected] in such a manner ? Force a nickname change regardless of the posting history.
Agree with you..!!!
I am not Nazi though.
I love DFI's long smiley list, it is awesome,it's mention system, having Chit Chat thread, Jokes Thread, What Are you listening Thread, Women in Uniform etc.
What I dont like that is I see deleted stuffs are not removed here. Even after deletion those things still remain.
But I most like DFI's long smiley list.:balle::balle:
I hate the fact that i cant post picture in my signature like other mods do.
Gib vid + photu option in sig phor aall senior members ! gib gib gib owah!:
I am a new member here. The reason that I joined is that after years of trolling and researching this is the first forum I came across where all discussions that I have seen so far are non abusive, reasonably debated and high quality in terms of technical knowledge.
However, I am finding it very difficult how to post a new thread to introduce myself in the introduction section. I still haven't introduced myself. Also, I would like a thread wherein people like me (who are not as knowledgeable as the other members here) can ask questions about our defence forces which can be answered quickly there and doubts can be cleared.
I think you need to complete 10 posts before you can open a new thread.
In the meanwhile, you can ask specific questions in specific threads, or general questions in the chit chat thread.
I hate the way Pakistan section is flooded with biased sticky threads which are meant to bash and malign the country and have no added value, it's a trolls paradise. Even if we're arch rivals, we can gain a lot from positive and civil dabates without name calling and insults. Kindly request you to remove these sticky threads and embrace the opportunity to know your "enemy" by interacting with moderate Pakistanis like myself.
I already sent a pm to Yusuf bhai just before I came accross this thread.
Unfortunately members on Indian and pakistani forums view hatred as a patriotic duty.
We need to stop viewing each other as enemies we were the same people three generations
yeah Love thy neighbour as thyself - I hope this motto will be DFI's new (horse) year resolution!

It should be: Keep your Friends close, Keep your enemies closer.:thumb:
Name calling and hurling insults are very unfortunate but the way we are demonizing each other for 70 years, I am not sure if you happen to be at one of the most popular Pakistani forums, it is the same there too... time to move on with economic developement and asspirations...
I would suggest that if anyone is using bad words ignore him... put forward your views in civilized way... that will earn you more respect....
There used to be a good Pakistani poster @Agnostic_Muslim nowdays he seldom visits this form...
u can not complain on these 2 threads
Why dont you invite more Pakistani members here???
I spend more time on PDF because there are a lot of Pakistani members there.
