So fellahs, grow up. Time to stop scoring points like sophomoric goons. Cus out the lady yes, but man, those pictures do not add anything. If anything they're distracting.
I agree....it's a bit overboard...I had to delete a number of threads...even suspending Shaittan...but lots of folks here were upset about the suspension
The standard was set here during the Obama's election. I among others, complained that using symbols of the Reich or representing Obama as Hitler and even more malicious and racist imagery was not appropriate. Those images may still be on the site. Do you remember the lampooning of Mrs Obama as a negress or the sambo imagery here?
I understand you were not the moderator then and may want to set a new standard but you will have to be firm and fair. You cannot let yugi who does not know who the hell I am insist I live in a the streets and is on welfare ( he does the same for others) and then ban folks because the ask DG if he would like what is happening to our elderly in Guyana happen to his mom. You have to be fair.
I do not know anyone posted anything obscene of Priya. The woman is a bare faced liar. She is on Facebook complaining about the treatment of the PM candidate when no one attacked the woman. Insisting she has no record to speak of in political life or record of activism is not an attack. Those are the facts. And how dare that crass woman imply any in the opposition is unfair to women when under her watch and under her authority women and young girls has endured an increasingly horrific life in Guyana with no recompense!
She is open to ridicule for her actions, her demeanor and her performance. For her to insist she represent class in Guyana is a laugh. To the contrary, most think her a loon and somewhat on the unstable side given her vitriolic personage and regular use as a PPP hound dog.
Again, if you would want to present a more balanced forum, I am in agreement. You would first have to stop Nehru from his online cussing and demand every posting here have a commentary or opinion statement. You would also have to enforce rules of argumentation and demand any deviation in the form of personal attacks, trolling, spamming etc stopped. Unfortunately, that is already a losing battle since even on academic sites moderated in real time with multiple moderators with permanent bannings that is a tough job. You are here only part time. However, I hope you try.
