View Full Version : Cricinfo is not India

January 18, 2005, 10:34 AM
Guys, please do not call names with nationality. A handful of people never represent a country. Hateful comments towards a country instead of the offenders are extremely painful and unfair to the rest of their compatriots.

Cricinfo has many reporters with "Indian looking" names. But are we 100% sure of their nationality? Even if we were, it is not fair, the very thing we want from them in the first place, to blame a whole country just because we don't agree with some of it's men's views.

Please be very considerate and careful about commenting against a whole nation. Thank you very much.

I think it's due to test win and series win of BD team.

On a somewhat related note, can we also dispense with the racist slurs? I've noticed a few posts referring to the Zimbabwe players as chimps, particularly in the match threads. I can understand being excited as a fan, but seriously, how would we feel if someone called us similar names?

That is totally unacceptable. I'll look for the posts and will take necessary actions. That is a large thread and may even take few days for me but rest assured I'll do that.

ATMR is right. The normally bebrusque, bellicose, belligerent Chinaman is using the carrot instead of the stik. Perhaps he had some mishty left over from the Chittagong win.:)

On the other hand, I agree with all previous posts, this forum has far too much class to resort to generalizations and unflattering name-calling.

adding to it.. I hav always been feeling since I became a member of this forum that we really discuss what Crickinfo writes far too much than necessary... hence making it more important than what it actually is!

It's well known site... no doubt... but hei.. it's just another website, after all!... and there are so many like it!!

Wasting all our energies talking about it is worthless sometimes..!

why give cricinfo the publicity it does not deserve eh?;)

Fully agree with chinaman. I've recently seen various comments about other races and countries which are truly unacceptable. Its only a handful who do this though.
Enjoy the series win guys and stop bothering about articles in a site!

sportsmanship spirit is the key. let's not meddle in the mud of nationality talk. cricket is just a game

- I don't know what 'bebrusque' means..coudln't find it it in M-W either. Bellicose? Belligerent?? - Hope you're just kidding.
If not, I'd dare to say that you're out of line here.
This website, unlike a many of them out there, has one of the best run fan sites out there. The moderator has a job to do - to keep this site pleasant and civil for all of us.
On occasions, when they enforce those by laws, it was never to be belligerent or w/ a bellicose attitude. Chinaman is no exception.
On the contrary, I have found the sino friend to be a fair moderator.

hehehe, don't worry BushidoTiger, reinausagi can call us anything she wants to as long as she doesn't break her teeth :)

January 18, 2005, 04:10 PM
I bet reinausagi meant Barbaresque :).

January 18, 2005, 05:16 PM
No she meant "Brusque". She started typing Brusque, but mistyped "be" (e is right beside r on the keyboard) first, then typed the whole word but forgot to delete the initial "be".

And Arnab would be right as usual....:) It's those darn acrylic nails women peer pressure you in to getting during the x-mas season.

BTW, I wasn't attacking Chinaman, he is this forum's conscience. Keeps me in line for sure.;)

Thank you cm bhai! The timing couldn't have been better. As Bangladesh begins to do better, our fans will find their voice. And there will be inevitably a temptation to stick it up to those who have disparaged our cricket from every angle possible. I will just re-state here what can be considered the defacto motto of the moderators here:

"Attack the message not the messenger" :)
