    I bet if I said 'Palestinians don't want peace'....now Palestine has been revealed for what it truly is' I would get HR'ed to oblivion. and yet that is exactly what this diary says and it has been recommended. I think you only notice if it is your ox being gored.

      ...has decided to weigh in on an I/P diary.  I wonder who Namazga I and Namazga II were.

        I am.  It's not hidden--I didn't want to post anymore (and didn't for several months), no longer have access to my other account and set up a new one to call attention to NRA terrorism in Maryland.  And figured I'd see what was going on for a few more days.ple who hate peace.

        Moreover, my comment was pretty tame.  I don't see too much there to disagree with--do you?

        •  Yes, it's that way with many (0+ / 0-)

          . . . many people who've been banned.

          Since you've decided to not post any more, I bid you farewell.

            banned.  Shouldn't be.  I no longer use it...so maybe it is---I'll look.

            •  Howdy... (0+ / 0-)

              Indeed your first account is neither banned nor timed-out and so long as you don't return to it (thus having two simultaneous active accounts) it's no biggie.

              I've enjoyed many of our discussions here in the past, even (perhaps particularly) when we've disagreed. Unsolicited advice here, then, to be taken with as much salt as you deem necessary: nothing productive can come of I/P discussions here. Walking away from them (and "yes," sometimes [as here] I can't help but heed the siren's call...it's a failing) greatly improves one's experience of the site as a whole.

              Nice to "see" you and I hope your fieldwork/research is going well.

              •  hello there. good to see you too. (1+ / 0-)

                Yes, the I/P threads are useless, but similar to last time (under the other account) sometimes I see things that bother me enough to warrant a response.  There have been productive I/P discussions on occasion--usually the ones meant to educate rather than blame.  98% of them are meant to blame.  There are the few gems, though--and sometimes some good comments even within the wars.

                In this case I was just responding to the Israel = bad message....

                Research is going fine, thanks.  Fieldwork is currently being hindered by Turkmen bureaucracy.....I'm was hoping to go to Central Asia in 2 days but that's off now.  So i'm stuck looking at satellilte photos all day.

    •  1. that's not what the diary says--it's citing (0+ / 0-)

      someone else's quote.

      2. Look who is recommending it.  Not exactly balanced.

    •  The diary says no such thing. (2+ / 0-)

      Unless you equate Hamas with all Palestinians.

      Do you?
