In Response To: This is an Assyrian forum (Peter BetBasoo)
Point taken, Peter. But let's be real, I for one, don't post new threads and am usually responding to people.
If you are seriously advocating that we need to add a disclaimer to every post linking it to an Assyrian issue, I think that's a bit tedious. And if you are saying please don't discuss the war because it does not relate, per se, I think you are flat out wrong. The change that is to come will impact assyrians in big ways. Just because some retards on this forum have realized the fallacy of their logic and are attempting to guise their attempt to withdraw under the cover of "nontopicality," you as the moderator, albeit a biased one, should still hold to open discussion. I'm preempting here, because you haven't done anything yet but post this message. But seriously Peter, you can't be so narrow.
I have always asked the same question of you prowarriors at the end of (practically) every post: "Why do you think that the Assyrian plight will change for the better?" I've worded it different. Anyhow, all I ever hear from these windbags is that I'm a traitor and I don't know what I'm talking about. They're the ones that don't know what they're talking about so they smokescreen with ad hominem. And then we have the melodramatics that need to grow up (like Fred Aprim for example) who doesn't know how to hold a discussion and gives up as soon as he sees someone make a dent in his argument.
Anyhow, the effects of this "reminder" that you posted is yet to be observed, so I'll hold off judgement.
