With so much controversy going on down under in recent times and the unacceptable remarks by certain posters in the aftermath of these events, the BanglaCricket Moderation team feels the need to provide a reminder of board rule A.1.4: Avoid posting about your personal hatred toward any country, nationality, race, ethnicity, religion and gender.

Some people mistakenly believe that the public expression of prejudiced attitudes is a legal and acceptable form of free speech. It is unlawful to discriminate on the basis of race, colour, gender, nationality,descent , ethnic or ethno-religious background. Racial comments against a person on the grounds that the person has a relative or associate who is of a particular race or background are also not allowed in this forum. If members are seen or behaving in a prejudiced ways then our message is clear and straightforward.

To elaborate, the BanglaCricket Moderation team will not tolerate any posts with hints of racism and prejudice, and the offender will be rewarded a temporary or permanent ban depending on the degree of the offense, with a permanent ban being the first option.

We have absolutely zero tolerance on racism and BanglaCricket is not the place to express one's personal hatred of a certain group of people. Racism is more than just being illegal - we believe it is evil and immoral.I also encourage our members to speak out against racism and bigotry. Otherwise, your silence may be interpreted as tacit approval of racial prejudice.

PS: Irrespective of all/any of the racially derogatory arguments that have been posted in several threads of BC forums in the past few days and the actions that have been taken against them by the Mod team, this notification should be strictly considered as a straightforward and final hint to the forum-participants against such bigoted posts. Bold actions will be taken without further warning in case of violations in applicable cases.

I have moved out a recent thread on selectors that went south fairly rapidly. The message was not the issue. The tenor of the posts were. The degree to which personal attacks were being about was absolutely revolting. Civility is not an alien concept. There will be repercussions.
