    You might feel oppressed
    I can assure you I do not feel in the least bit oppressed

    you look like the bully here, not her
    Relentless as I may be, on matters of great import to our society, I take care never to bully and have gone out of my way to explain to her that my comments are primarily intended to give folks cause for reflection before they consider acting similarly

    The administraters can run it as they like, ban whoever they want
    1) No, they can't, there is a code of conduct; 2) Even if they could censor the site, the girl is not an admin

    It's fine to disagree with them, to challenge them. But what you wouldn't do is attack their religion
    We are all free to critique everything, within the law and the rules of this website

    you should think about people as individuals, not a collective group
    Your conceptualisation of psycho-social phenomena is a little binary. In time you'll grow to understand that whilst one should of course judge an individual on their own merits, and try not to demonstrate undue prejudice, equally no man is an island, and women in particular are highly susceptible to social (and ethno-cultural) imprinting. Keeping this somewhat on topic, relatedly, one thing I noticed on Tinder was that there were virtually no (identifiably) Eastern girls on there

    It's just interesting your examples were of a tiny group of Muslims, rather than the groups of thousands of non-Muslims
    I was commenting on a narrow normative potentiality. Those are the key contemporary congruent examples of which I am aware, relating to my hometown. There are a myriad of other examples of problematic inter-cultural issues one could cite (more broadly), in relation to Islamism, but I don't see what that would achieve

    People often feel they aren't bullying. Your tone is nasty, whereas hers is polite. That doesn't reflect well on you, whatever you intend.

    You're taking those comments over literally. The website owners set their code of conduct.

    Yes, but unless you are a **** you wouldn't needlessly attack someone's religion. I've attacked religion loads of times, but I wouldn't just bring it up when it isn't the topic.

    Oh don't try and patronise me because I explained to you what a civil liberty is, it's so transparent. I knew you would get annoyed about that. "No man is an island" doesn't counter what you've done, which is make an unfair assumption about the reason for someone's argument. If she'd said "Discussing dating is haram, please don't do it", then discussing Islam and intolerances evident in Islamic communities would be relevant. I bet you wouldn't say "that's a typical black person argument". Acceptable targets.

    You'd rarely find Middle eastern girls on dating websites most likely let alone one on a place like tinder. Baba( daddy) wouldn't allow that if he found out also the values we have,I don't know many Arab girls that actually sleep with numerous and strange men,maybe some but not the majority,it more of a western thing,hence why I don't do hookups or that type of nonsense. We value our reputation based on cultural values and Norms. That being said,I act more European than Arab and some of the things I belief in go against my culture,tinder just isn't one of them.

    These are good rules.....it's just a shame that online dating turns most women into egomaniacal narcissists who seem to think no man is worthy enough to even walk on the same ground as they do, let alone date them.
    It perhaps enhances narcissistic traits that are already there... could be a good filter; if someone comes across as not a complete idiot then you've got a keeper

    Cultural values and 'Norms' such as?

    There is nothing wrong with casual sex. Let's not start to 'slut shame' here.

    Your tone is nasty
    If you feel I’ve phrased something in a tone that could be (mis)interpreted as nasty then do please feel free to point it out

    That doesn't reflect well on you
    Whilst I would not wish to unduly upset or offend anyone, I’m afraid IDGAF how standing up to Islamism reflects on me, it’s my moral and patriotic obligation

    The website owners set their code of conduct
    Correct

    you wouldn't needlessly attack someone's religion
    Indeed I would not

    I don't think anything said here could possibly be defined as "Islamism", but whatever satisfies your ego.
