Amen to that sarikedi. Some of the nitpickers have left though maybe only temporarily I fear.

Quoting Daydreamer:

This is outrageous. But I don't think it is because of religion, it is because of society which is strictly patriarchal and women's place in the hierarchy is right behind farm animals. I wonder what the punishment to the father will be.

Totally agree. I'm afraid that some aspects of the religion justify this social behavior.. :-S

Quoting sarikedi:

It seems to me, as someone who reads often but doesn't post often, that people would leave turkishclass because of the constant bickering back and forth over forum rules. The reason I don't post often is because I fear anything I might write will be pounced on and attacked.

Surely everyone (not spammers) here has a common denominator--they enjoy turkey, it's culture, the language, and want to know more!--otherwise we wouldn't be a member here. Does that mean we have to be ignorant of current events? The last time I was in Turkey, these issues are the very things my Turkish friends and I discussed! I don't think I've met a Turkish person, passionate about their country, who wasn't eager to discuss politics and religion--in Turkey and elsewhere!

I have made several really good friends as a direct result of turkishclass. This would not have been possible without heartfelt discussions ranging a wide array of topics. And, at the end of the day, everything does relate back to Turkey: the main reason we are all here. Each of us, whether it be our spouse, our friends, where we visit, where we live, have a love of Turkey and the people. Is the aim of this site not to spread the joy of Turkey to all? Then please don't chase away precious members by nitpicking/criticizing everything they say.

We are trying to change this Sarikedi and make the forum less aggressive... Thanks for sharing.

I have the same experience as sarıkedi: in Turkey, ALL my friends willingly discuss the topics that are so difficult to talk about here. It were topics they often talk about and also were very willing to explain to me as a foreigner. I dont get why it is so hard to talk about TURKEY here.

I also dont understand why people keep talking about members leaving? People, this is a WEBSİTE, not a lifetimesentence! If you're bored, or start to have other stuff to do, you simply go! Its not like we are not getting any new members these days. The flood of new members is still like it used to be. People come people go.

If you want to go, go. If you want to stay, then JOİN.
