I don't want to harp on, but i've really had enough of all this Malvinas/Falklands stuff its taking over the site. So i want to see if everyone else agrees with me, consider it a sort of petition.

That is an autoritary rule,that is like following the example of galtieri,the man that you considered a devil in your posts (im talking to every british).

of course the people who don't feels involucrated will vote yes,but i think this is excessive and you do not have privileges to make new rules,have you?,and that of automatically banned is far opressive,i consider it as an insulting to my attempt to make public the never seen side.
also this discussion was the reason of the entering of a lot of members.
and there is a topic for the malvinas,it is like making prohibited posting about landrovers if there is a topic about it in the off topic general.

nobody is taking over the site,if you consider the "off topic" the entire site,you are wrong.

there are other places to talk about ww2,im talking about the other sections.
live with this,you cannot destroy the rights of the free expression and why making prohibited this topic?,then can i make prohibited to talk about the war on irak?.

mods,please,do something in this topic,it would be a good idea to show that you are doing your job :wink: .

THE MALVINAS ARE RELATIONATED WITH MORE THINGS,AND SOMETIMES IT IS GOOD TO DO REFERENCE TO THEM FOR HELPING THE INFORMATION RELATION THROUGHT TIME AND PLACES,ETC.

I voted Yes. I think its ok for the occassional remark to be outside of those topics, but any discussion back and forth should be in those specific threads.

I too am fed up with it outside its specific area.

Well firstly this is not 'authoritarian' as i'm expressing my democratic right of free opinion


of course the people who don't feels involucrated will vote yes,but i think this is excessive and you do not have privileges to make new rules,have you?,

No i don't have any privilages regarding changing/making rules hence the use of the word 'petition'. It is simply a suggestion, something i'm allowed to do. if the mods wish to do anything about it then thats their perogative. I'm just execercising my democratic rights.

Well this ideea of "banning" some posts (generally speaking) are already applied. Remember what moderators do.

Particularly, an objective for all moderators is the maintaing the discussion within that thread. You remember those "off-topic post!" "back to the topic!", "stick to the topic!" posts from admins, mods and eventually from other users.

What we have to do if there are 10-15 posts diverted from the thread ideea?

So far, one month ago or so, Crab_to_be has locked a topic and deleted a lot of off-topic posts. And there were complaints from Clauss and Commando for deleting so many posts.

Yesterday I decided to lock 2 topics and split them.

The splitted topics I renamed "Falkland / Malvinas thread part 20 (?)" and "Falkland / Malvinas thread part 21 (?)". I haven't any intention to offend anybody by writing part 20 and 21. Rather it was my protest reffering to this neverending discussion.


I don't think that is necessary a new rule. As long as some posts will be off-topic in certain threads actions will be taken (as till now). From asking posters to edit their posts to split the thread in 2. There's a whole range of means for action.

Well i must say cheers, it's good to know something's being done. Though even you must admit this whole Falklands thing has been like a plague on this site.

Not the whole Falkland thing but the so-called "Sinking of HMS Invincible" thing, if you remeber...

I went with yes. I'm as guilty as anyone of being dragged into pointless bickering (which I apologise without reservation to the Mods for), but it is getting silly how many threads are getting dragged into pointless arguments.

I voted yes because I'm tired of the constant tension between some of the british users and some of the argentian users.....

well we can deal: malvinas things should be posted only in the malvinas topic,and in the ARGENTINIAN MILITARY TOPIC.

because that war has much to do with that topic.

agree?

if you don't like the topic,don't visit it,as i have seen,the argentinian military topic has 4321 visits!

Get me some Earl Grey as well.

It does get kind of bothersome when the topic of religion goes to the Falklands.

I voted Yes.

I don't go to Mc Donalds anymore as their latest promotion is a free fat *** with every meal( or in my case a fatter middle aged ***). Just to go off topic briefly, I was back in my home town Liverpool(UK) a couple of weeks back and stopped in to a Mc Donalds ( Edge Lane Drive ) the four girls serving were very much on the excessivly large size and all wore T shirts with the "I'm loving it" logo. I had to bite my tounge to stop me from demanding that they "love it less".

There used to be a couple of proper beautiful girls who worked in the one by Central station, a blonde and a brunette. Hope they never got fat, that would be a crime.

Anyhow in the words of the king of Swamp castle "Lets not bicker about who killed who"

Therefore we are going to keep the ARG Military and 1 of the falklands threads that will be closely watched. You are not to talk about anything related about the falklands in ARG Mil. So at the moment there are 3 ??? threads about the falklands. We can pick 1 or just start over. What do you guys think?

We also could just start all over? Anybody like this Idea!
