blatantly racis

Is Dutch treat also racist? How about pizza lover? Scotch drinker? English
sheepdog, French kiss, Polish pierogi, Irish tenor, German short-haired pointer? Australian Open? Aren't you taking PC to ridiculous extremes if you whiff racism at every turn of the way? Kosher is not and never has been a pejorative term by any stretch of the imagination. Ask any Jew!

Why can't you just call him "that Kaczynski"

A xenophobic clown is what he is, and that is what I will be calling him.

Thanks anyway.

And I didn't have you down for yellow Harry. If a Hollywood actor can call Drumph a "xenophobic fascist" in a leading interview then I defend my right to address Kaczynski as a "xenophobic clown."

xenophobic

Others could reserve the right to call you a kaczophobic pervert.
How about dudophobic, lesbophobic, szydłophobic, homophonic, francophobic, sinophobic, homophobic, xenophobic, germanophobic, judaeophobic, itlaophobic, etc., etc., etc. But what does it all prove?!

PISlamic State

This charatcer is really off his rocker. Spewing all that hateful bile has addled what's left of his brain and he really needs to see a shrink ASAP. Bipolar, schizophrenia? Only his psychiatrist knows!

No it's just completely inaccurate when referring to a newspaper founded by someone who does not practice Juadism.

Remind us again how long JK spent in PRL jails compared to Michnik?

Would a moderator care to explain why we are not allowed to discuss the Warsaw office of a Polish organisation being attacked (almost certainly by Poles)?

Don't confuse readers with made up names for political parties and public figures in future

I defend my right to address Kaczynski as a "xenophobic clown."

You are of course perfectly free to address him as that. However, the rule at PF is that you can't call him 'that xenophobic clown D*ckboy' (I'll bleep out part of the offending word), you need to use his real name when calling him a xenophobic clown.

I would much like to see the rule extended to cover all real names. I understand that that may well mean I'll have to stop using the term Pisl*mic St*te (even though that isn't given a made up name where there is a real name) but I think the overall effect will be very positive. We can only hope that the mods agree.

Is that the new rule? Does it also extend to things other than political parties? I'm thinking of the unpleasant racist terms used to describe Gazeta Wyborcza (such as the "Kosher Tribune") and the New York Times (such as the "Jew York Times").

yet blatant racism remains

Well, it does when posted by some posters; I'm completely sure that if other posters (such as you and me) were to start posting the kind of foul racism that pollutes this place, we'd be banned without so much as a single warning.

They're racist, hence they're acceptable here.

I still don't understand what the problem is to simply ask people to use real names and not made up names.

Harry - I think we need to start discussing "w¦mieci", "Nasz Agitacja", "(Gazeta) Trybuna Polska" "TV Przekupienie" and other publications. Perhaps the mods will wake up, then.

The first post in a new thread is very important to enable the discussion to follow on. If you use made up names then you are confusing the readers and not setting a good tone. In future you you will need to use the correct names when creating a new thread or it will get binned.

On a different note, could you explain what you meant by this?Well that and bitterness about all those letters begging for a job. I hope you were not trying to belittle another member, after getting a weeks suspension for similar words

No, they'd just ban you. Look at the way that Po was using his hilarious 'mis-spelling' of PO (adding an extra O). I didn't even use the same 'mis-spelling', just asked if I could use it, and that was all the excuse Vincent needed to impose a one-week ban.

You have to remember that rules are enforced very selectively, for example above Ziemowit has posted what he says is my address and the post hasn't been edited and he hasn't been banned but when I commented on the physical appearance of a certain building, that post was completely deleted and a post quoting that part of my post also had that wording removed.

bitterness about all those letters begging for a job

Did I say whether the member sent or received those letters?

I hope you were not trying to belittle another member

If I wanted to belittle another member, I'd be sure to do it using wording that doesn't draw a ban; would wording such as the below be acceptable?

This charatcer is really off his rocker.

As a lover of POO, nothing is more disgusting than your hairy, obnoxious self and your bile-spewing PiSlamic state.

His endless diarrheoae of the mouth cannot stop splattering gobs of excrement

his ad hom trolling, character assassination and general obnoxiousness, is back to spew his Poland-bashing, Church-bashing, and inexhaustible supply of toxins and bile to contaminate the forum with.

All of the above is perfectly fine with you, is it?

Too bad you didn't exercise this last time when posting personal information abut him.

would wording such as the below be acceptable?

this is an opinion, and speculation, with no personal information posted. Some might say it's accurate, but I for one would dismiss it as fictional, as no character in real life could be this vile, could they?.

I reckon to call someone out as mentally deficient or bi-polar is pretty low:(

Vincent, perhaps you'd like to address why it's acceptable for Polonius to call someone "The Great Mulatto"?

I'm pretty sure Polonius would be the first to complain should someone call Kaczyński "The Great Flying Duck".

using his hilarious 'mis-spelling'

Using his not hilarious but vicious, vile and mean-spirited distortion PiSlamic State to malign the great PiS party, the only one ever to win and outright majrotiy in 26 years of post-RT misrule. It was his reversion to that distortion, despite being repeatedly warned, that triggered the backlash. He clearly takes his cues from the sly and crafty Platformers who set a trap for PiS by illicitly appointing TK members and then launching an attack on the government.

I have never posted any personal information about him, as would be clear if the post was still there.

this is an opinion, and speculation, with no personal information posted.

So you have no problem with me using those exact words to describe Po?

no character in real life could be this vile, could they?

Well, there is one poster who clearly answers your question but me posting his username would just give you an excuse to ban me, so I won't.

I reckon to call someone out as mentally deficient or bi-polar is pretty low:(

And everybody else agrees with you, the problem is that Vincent appears to think it is entirely acceptable from that one particular poster. Perhaps you'd like to use identical language to refer to other posters and see how fast you get a warning?

Vincent, perhaps you'd like to address why it's acceptable for Polonius to call someone "The Great Mulatto"?

No he won't: it's only acceptable when Po does it.

Merged: 'Accidentally' and hilariously mis-spelling other posters' names

the1% hairy bollocks truth.

Mods, does the rule about not 'accidentally' and hilariously mis-spelling other posters' names no longer exist? If it does still exist, why do we keep reading the above?

Also, is the rule still five warnings and then a ban? Six times in the last two days: polishforums.com/index.php?phrase=hairy+bollocks&searchType=3&where=0&forum=&posterName=&action=search&searchGo=1

Merged: Rule against 'hilarious' 'mis-spelling' and chasing of names

Given the below posts in do the rules forbidding people from calling posters by other than their names and changing the spelling of the names of political parties no longer exist?

You don't follow the rules anyway

Kindly provide examples of me changing a poster's name to anything other than a permitted diminutive or mis-spelling the name of a political party or apologize for your off-topic ad hom trolling designed to drive a thread off-topic (which itself certainly used to be against forum rules, perhaps it isn't any more).
