Default A reminder about our forum rules

Many of you apparently have forgotten. We have them in place for a reason.

Our goal is to foster intelligent, illuminating and entertaining conversations. To help us meet these goals do follow the simple forum guidelines detailed here.

Please do enjoy the discussions here, but do remember that what is posted here has only as much credibility as the (generally) anonymous person posting it. Don’t take things too seriously and try to have a good time.

Read the rules again.

However ...

A Special Note on Derogatory Terms

It is sad and shameful that we actually have to highlight this one common form of oft-repeated forum violation when extremely derogatory words are used to describe people of other nationalities and religious persuasions. Ignorance is no excuse, but we see so many people engage in this that we have to explicitly publish this note and state in no unequivocal terms that these words and their variants are absolutely prohibited and can get you immediately and permanently banned with no prior or additional warning.
  • "paki" - This word is used as a derogatory term directed towards South Asians (and sometimes Middle Eastern people) in the UK and is offensive.
  • "malu/mallu" and variants: This word is used as a derogatory term directed towards Indians, particularly Hindus, in Bangladesh and is considered extremely offensive.
Do note that this list outlines just two common examples of many and is by no means comprehensive or intended to cover all abusive terms that could lead to a permanent ban. Members are expected to exercise caution and refrain from posting language that could be perceived as abusive and/or derogatory and moderators reserve the right to act accordingly in the event of a violation.

Hope Chokers is not considered offensive for Saffers
Or Ozzies or Kiwis

No Question about the term used against Hindus is extremely prejudiced and a very hateful and i actually judge people with extreme prejudice who use the term.

Had no idea that the term used for Pakistanis is held with such equal prejudice. I mean to call a Hindu in Bangladesh that would equate to telling him to leave this country (and since it does happen i understand its significance).

I understand Indians like to call Bengalis Bongs while Pakistanis use Banglas/Bangla people though could not see any racial slurring in this case.

Hope we can stay free of hatred while enjoying our time here

Are we getting our feelings hurt? Already?? Words like these offend me: 1) loser
2) minnows
3) that thread about ptv.
etc

I solemnly do respect and will continue to respect your rules of posting.

Thank You,
aklemalp

That definitely needs to be addressed, big bro. I do hope that this is not taken lightly...and admins take heed in an investigation into this...

We don't need this forum to sink.

Should remove the newest member immediately...that's where the line was crossed...

Lifetime ban should be the only option.

With the much anticipated Semifinal clash of the champions trophy coming we would like to remind everyone to abide by the forum rules.

help maintain civility in the forum

Do not hurl abuse at any Country, Player or Forum members. No name-calling, insults, or mockery of Players or Forum Members. Moderators will be extremely strict in these cases.

keep in mind that what is posted here has just as much validity as the individual posting it. Try not to consider things excessively important and have a go at, making it impossible to have a decent time. if you find any post offensive, Please help the moderation team by “flagging” it clicking the report button.

Lets all have dynamic discussion filled forum for the next couple of days

Just a suggestion, I have no knowledge of what is leading to the current panic attack, but least you guys can do is be nice to the new members.

From my first post, all I have seen regarding new members is suspicion and uncalled for prejudice.
