Guest Rob Posted February 5, 2008 Share Posted February 5, 2008 Why is it that French posters (Tapir) can post in the FRES discussion an opinion without posting any arguments, articles, etc... but I get attacked on a personal level (by Tancrede) when I defend these things? Why was European banned for doing exactly the same thing (posting information without links, etc...), just about Mirage IV, a French product? At the time, Fenrir told me that the reason for banning European was that he said things without proof or argumentation. I accepted this explanation and thought it would be a general rule. Apparently it isn't. I am not asking for anyone to be banned but why is it that these things get tolerated? Does this forum want to have no foreigners in this forum? Ban them and flame them all till the last gives up and the board's opinion is the same (i.e. franco-french)? Why is it that I, as a foreigner on this forum, have to take abuse and insults towards me and my country? I am not saying that I am an angel, I take abuse and give out abuse from time to time (though iirc never on a personal level on this forum), but surely the minority has to protected better than the 90% French majority on this forum? I do not want to leave the forum (my French has imo improved massively since I post here), but I herewith offer my resignation from the forum, if you don't want foreigners with a strong opinion on this board, tell me and I will leave voluntarily. You see I don't want a ban, as I'm posting from a university network. :lol: So, if I'm likely to be banned, tell me and I'll leave voluntarily and you can delete my account. cette pure merveille de CR2 cette bouffonerie grotesque de M777 Portee 6x8 Link. http://www.air-defense.net/Forum_AD/index.php?topic=2884.300 Let's be fair, if I said "cette pure merveille de Rafale" and "cette bouffonerie grotesque de Mirage 2000" without any links or articles, do you think I wouldn't get banned within seconds on this forum? As Fenrir told me at the time of European's ban, I am a good poster, because I post links, articles, etc... to help my argument, I still do, in the latest FRES argument, I was the only person to have posted two links and one article about Leclerc/Challenger II/M777/Caesar. But I get the abuse? I get told that I am dishonest. I get told I am wrong, despite my links at least helping my argument. This is the thread European was apparently banned for. How are the above remarks any better? Does it make a difference if one attacks a non-French weapon without links, articles, information?
