Some are getting on Roswitha's case constantly, thats all Im saying, and she's not even breaking any rules as opposed to the vast majority (including myself).

Quoting azade:

İ could gather a great deal of members who are annoyed by other specific members/topics/whatever but that doesn't mean they should be 'pushed' into leaving the site. İ am so disappointed in how people are treated differently on this site, how some are allowed to break the rules but some are being told off when they are not breaking any...


People make their own choices azade. If they let themselves be “pushed” because they take things personally then that is their issue, not the sites.
Don’t you think if someone REALLY felt so strongly that they were being pushed out……… if they were REALLY so offended by something or someone …..that they post a “goodbye” thread…..that they wouldn’t keep coming back?
No one is forced to log on this site, we all do it of our own free will. And those that are really "pushed out" are on the deleted users list, with a comment other than "user's request"!

How not to take it personally when one is being singled out over and over again?

Anyway this is a pointless debate

Quoting Daydreamer:

Azade, what do you mean "pushed"? Nobody's told Roswitha to leave this site. Nobody told many other members to do it either. Some members left being insulted by different issues. We are a multinational community, Serbian members got offended by pro-Kosovar posts where they were called murderers. Jewish members got offended by being called "a disgusting nation" women who are non-Muslim experience verbal aggression being called stupid, unsuccessful in life, unjust, biased etc. Some of these members quit TC as well because they were fed up with arguing over the same issues over and over again. Some of them were really aggressive and they were often told that. It seems the only members not really called names are Muslims. You can't compare discussing certain topics to calling names. If you follow the forum, you may see that most members try to be as polite as possible. Unfortunately, there are some "trolls" who cut in and break peace with vulgar language and personal remarks. Yes, it does happen then that sometimes we lose our patience and tease that person in return.


100% true!

Thats the only point I'm trying to point out. Since Catwoman was the one to listen to all the other members complain about Roswitha all day, she made the decision to notify Roswitha to limit her daily osts, limit her length of posts, limit her cartoons.

The pressure must have been overwhelming for her to come to the conclusion that Roswitha must be stopped, otherwise, she could have just ignored the few messages she got...

There was a time when this site was run by people who were truly interested in positive culture exchange. Now, its just a playtoy for a bored housewoman who enjoys using the site to further her political agenda while she ridicules those she disagrees with.
Enjoy all!!!

God, look how many mother Theresas we have here. Everybody but Roswitha complain about "how she's treated" here!
Maybe you have some other problems you want to talk about Keith? Is there someone insulting Ataturk in Minnesota?

It's quite lovely when the sexism surfaces among our male members. There could be hundred better reasons then being a bored housewoman who wants to "push her political agenda". You could have done better Keith without getting primitively sexist here. Also, your guesses... are coming from completely wrong directions. What's YOUR point, I wonder? Is it to incite more intercultural hatred or to promote the thing you keep complaining we don't have enough - some mutual understanding. It's the people on the web site that make this web site. You're one of them and you're not a good example of what you're trying to promote.

If these things were not true, I would not say them. Roswitha is my friend and she is the last person here who should be annoyed by frequent "suggestions" from our friendly admin...

Lets not pretend....This is Catwoman's site. No one else. She is free to uses it and abuse it any way she likes. If the site were ran by a man, my decription would be that of a man...
My only adjective was bored. Hardly sexist.
