    I can't help noticing that the atmosphere around the board has taken a turn for the worst recently.

    Insulting and aggression has reached an all time high.

    Isn't it time we spread some good vibes?

    Yes, I agree. And I apologize for any part I have played in that.

    I like everyone on this forum, but I hate prejudice from people who talk complete trash about a subject they know NOTHING about.

    How on earth a pair of people who have zero clue about Iran think they are 100% against every cheap comment they make si beyond me.

    "Iran is a **** country." - Howard.

    "I hate arabs, middle easterns and iranians...anything else" - Vienna

    No, I don't like this.

    It seems that discussion and 'enhancing mutual understanding' have been replaced by BEING RIGHT and WINNING AN ARGUEMENT :MAD:, yes. A lot of the posts seem more outright abusive as well, yea.

    I'm liking the atmosphere at the moment. There are no dense newbies posting random threads and there are lots of interesting threads to get involved in.

    No. People have a right to their opinion, as long as it is expressed in a reasonable way.
    Sometimes people do get caught up on an issue that is emotive for them, and they do react strongly, but if people can't discuss this without resorting to insulting others, and general rudeness, then some action should be taken.

    Hmm i might be guilty of that... However, I do only insult people when they do it to me first, I'm afraid I don't know the meaning of the phrase 'taking the moral high ground'

    Agreed - there are so many childish people on these boards refusing to accept my point of view.
    I am willing to listen to anyones opinion regarding it is put in a reasonable manner. And if their reasoning is strong enough to sway me from my own thoughts on the issue, then i may change my opinion. But you cannot call people childish just because they don't agree with you.
    If i took that attitude, at some time or another i would call everyone childish.
