Quoting Trudy

A ridiculous statement. Assuming that a western based site has western ways of speech does not mean that easterners are not welcome. It only means that they might be surprised by manners they are not used to hear/see/read daily. 

 

 That is different

 

Quoting Elisabeth

 but basically, if it is based in the West, then it would be predominately based on Western thought....

 

That means will be monitored,ruled by Western´s thoughts,so it will be like us Easterns living in a foreigner country,and we have to adapt to it rules,and at the end they will complain from us because we dont fit in !

So it is not a ridiculous statement.

I have a request: I like to have a ´I feel insulted´ smiley. Than I/we can use that everytime someone calls ´us´ westerners ´bed´, ´evil´ or otherwise.

Don´t fitting in has nothing to do with where someone comes from but it certainly has to do with the way of behaving.

I said that only personal insults are subject to deletion. not if you are insulted by some people´s opinions.

 As a matter of interest then, would you not adapt to the rules of a foreign country you lived in? Or have I misinterpreted what you are saying here?

 Ah yes, so if user X tells me I am ´bed´ it is a personal insult but if that same person says all westerners/the west are ´bed´ it is just an opinion? That makes really sense... not.

easterners have every right in the west, stating that they suffer in the west is very ridiculous. just simply nobody holds them in there.

they enjoy the tolerance, freedom, they can freely practise their religoins and even propagate it, they can practice their customs including honor killings etc etc. but at the end i think they dont understand what freedom is.

and it is not so in the east (esp in middle east), when westerners are just guests (they dont migrate to the east) they have to adjust themselves to the eastern customs in order not to offend the east.

 

perhaps its Canlis mentality that doesnt allow free thinking, doesnt understand what it means to freely express yourslef without a fear of being silenced. however, it doesnt bother her when the easterners often and eagerly attack the west.

 

i love speaking straightforward and i hate being limitted. for me not being allowed to express equals to be forced to wear a burka.

 

shame this site shares a la turkish - egyptian style of free speech.
