alskef, nobody knew you are from syria, that would not factor in with sanchin's response. Yes, many of your posts are ridiculous.

I know Sanchin to be a balanced and respectful person, however he is direct and honest in his responses. I am quite sure there is not bias towards your nationality.

I would humbly submit that you may wish to reconsider your complaint.

Thanks guys.

alskef,
Let me make it perfectly clear that nothing but the words in your posts has any effect on my moderation. The thread is still there if anyone wants to take a gander.

In Arabic language, when you tell a person that he or his speech is ridiculous, that means he is undesirable...
Am I undesirable?

Hi alskef ...I also had a tough time when I first started.

You know what I did? I kept reading and I actually learned something! can you imagine that?! It's been a ridiculous AND desireable experience.

A very happy story to you, my friend.

thank you my friend...
what I am wonder is that way they are talking with me...
I am moderator in startimes2.com forums for 3 years.. I read ridiculous posts but I'd never said to anybody that he is rediculous!
In Arabic, it's like you are saying: "you are silly and stupid"
that's why I got sad

your translation is basically correct. rediculous means 'silly' or 'not making any sense'.

rediculous does NOT always mean 'stupid', and it never means you are 'not desireable'; but it could mean your opinion right now is 'not believable'.

'rediculous' is not always a bad thing, if you are trying to be funny and someone says you are 'rediculous' it is a compliment.

I think of martial art forums as sparring with words. This particular forum is kind of like light contact to the head and full contact to the body, with no kicks below the belt are allowed.

other forums (like bullshido.com) are full contact to body and head, and 'dirty fighting' is allowed.

It just depends what level of roughnes you wish to spar with words...then pick your forum.

I think this forum is a good medium, since there are good, bad, ugly and ridiculous(silly) words being throw ...with a level of civilized debate. block, dodge or counter them, it's your choice.

remember, when someone insults you it is their weakness...not yours. You can choose to be the victim and complain, or you can fight back (while keeping on topic and not insulting back) - if you fight back in a civilized manner your opinion will be more respected. You already have respect of many for being brave enough to post on a forum that is not your first language.

You seem very intellegent...you will enjoy posting here, I'm sure. good luck, have fun and learn.
-Ed

ridiculous

adj 1: inspiring scornful pity; "how silly an ardent and unsuccessful wooer can be especially if he is getting on in years"- Dashiell Hammett [syn: pathetic, silly] 2: completely devoid of wisdom or good sense; "the absurd excuse that the dog ate his homework"; "that's a cockeyed idea"; "ask a nonsensical question and get a nonsensical answer"; "a contribution so small as to be laughable"; "it is ludicrous to call a cottage a mansion"; "a preposterous attempt to turn back the pages of history"; "her conceited assumption of universal interest in her rather dull children was ridiculous" [syn: absurd, cockeyed, derisory, idiotic, laughable, ludicrous, nonsensical, preposterous] 3: broadly or extravagantly humorous; resembling farce; "the wild farcical exuberance of a clown"; "ludicrous green hair" [syn: farcical, ludicrous]-Dictionary.com

I believe he meant definition #2.
I believe it was an attempt to get you to think harder to come up with a good thread or post-not an attack on you as a person.
