please tag or lock it. I would really appreciate it.

If you want to talk about the tenants of Islam, a thread where I'm asking for advice is not the place to do so.

I've always been opposed to the notion that the maker of a thread is the ultimate arbiter in what content will be allowed within it. Discussions that are allowed develop organically are, in my mind, necessary for a healthy environment.

In any case you expressed a political opinion and should not really be surprised when someone ends up disagreeing with you.

I don't recall doing so, I'm pretty sure my words were very apolitical and fact based. He's the one who brought politics into a real life thread. At the very least, split the thread and put the bullshit in 9/11 where it belongs.

Also, I'm not asking that his posts be tagged or removed, just that it not be allowed to continue in my "help me please" thread.

Quoting Chiefsonny on the topic of derailing

I suggest one of you make a new Thread about that subject.


Or I guess this is just another thing that's okay for some people to do, just not me.

His response to your post was completely on topic.

You aren't entitled to an echo-chamber thread because you post your politically loaded question in a primarily apolitical forum.

These frivolous complaints are really getting obnoxious.

Come on people. If you get called an idiot by a mod for bullying, maybe you shouldn't build up a reputation for bullying in the first place! If you dislike the way someone responds to your question, think about how you formulated your question!

False. He did not address the topic whatsoever.

In fact, the only person who posted a comment on topic was Louis.

The only comment that you think was on topic is coincidentally the same one you expressly agreed with.

What's wrong with people disagreeing with how you've framing the situation? It actually pushed the trajectory of your discussion in an interesting direction. Isn't that a good thing? Don't you find it stimulates discussion and puts things into perspective? I enjoyed the differing viewpoints.

What? Who ever said I agreed with what he said. I thanked him for his advice because he was the only one who gave any. Christ you're as dense as you are Racist, Ricardo.

I mean to be fair it's pretty obvious Ghowilo wasn't looking for a debate on who is right or wrong, he was just looking for advice on how to talk to his mother about the matter.

And that's typically true, but nothing SA said really helped the OP with the problem he was expressing... It wasn't so much an organic transition as a complete hijack of the original post. If Louis hadn't replied then the OP would've gone unanswered. I think if someone makes a post wanting advice, but instead gets a debate on why Islam is bad, they have a right to be a bit annoyed.

I also think the fact that Ghowilo posted it in Real Life rather than World is kinda telling of the type of conversation he was looking for.

Given there's no local mod I'd rather hear from a couple other staff before I do anything, but my personal opinion would be to split the "muslim debate" part out into its own thread. (Although tbh it's probably already run its course).
