Thank you my friend...
It was misunderstanding and it was solved...
In my Arabic language, this word is used to insult a person.. when I saw it I wondered that.. but then I knew that there is misunderstanding between us especially when they confirmed that my posts are ridiculous.
anyway, we are all brothers here and I wish we can stay like that in future.
Thank you all
yours,
Ali Alskef

(Refer to above post by Kintama).

I like that analogy...a lot. While I registered at fightingarts.com almost a year ago (and e-budo, budoseek, etc.), I didn't post. Just reading, and learning. But the old forum, due to software, and atmosphere just wasn't one I was interested in participating.

Water seeks its level. There has been a definite change in the 'tone' at this forum. Perhaps it is a more relaxed mindset, new members, or the new pretty screens...but I appreciate the change in the weather.

Thanks for putting up with my newbie posts, and welcome aboard Alskef.

I think it's the pretty screens... they're so calm... it looks like whoever redesigned this forum had studied the psychological effects that colors have on people. That and the good job the moderators are doing...

Ali, they say that life is a series of mis-communications. I do not think there was any prejudice in Sanchin31's posts.

As far as the "words" themselves are concerned there is a learning curve here, like anywhere else, welcome to our little community and it's funny ways! No harm done.

Sanchin31 can be a little brusque at times, and sometimes it can come across as condescending and sarcastic, but be assured, he means nothing by it. He is a really nice guy.

The difficulty with this medium is that it is hard to convey meaning thru words - it takes a really good writer to be able to not only convey ideas in a coherent fashion, but also bring meaning and understanding thru the written word.

Some of the members here are really good writers, but most of us are still learning how to write well - even though for some of us, English is our first language.

Yes we debate with words here, but that's all it is - words. We debate ideas and attack people's positions and hypotheses, but we don't attack the person. That's not what these forums are about. So let me assure you, that there is no racist undertone (overtone?) in what he writes.

Now that we are aware that not everyone here is from the English speaking world, I guess jokes about camels, fleas and genitalia would be in extremely poor taste.

Like they say in the ring. No hitting below the belt. No biting, no eye-gouging. Keep it clean. Make it a good fight. Now BOX!

Well from time to time you get people who don't know how to write because English isn't their first language, veryf ew have stayed i believe. However predominantly there have been good English writers so yeah...... while we're on the subject of offending people no llama jokes.... or else you'll be with a very unhappy Peruvian here!!! grr

I'm just trying to liven up the mood i didn't mean anything i was just replying to the thread in general, hopefully i didn't offend. As for the llama thing.... i couldn't think of any other symbol off the top of my head that would represent the country of my birth, Peru. Ahh memories...
