Name changed for this

Of late I've been come so shocked at the bullying and racism on this site.
Latest two that have since been deleted taking the piss out of gypsies.
So what if a user is either a gypsy, Jewish, asian it doesn't give you the right to belittle. I read the posts lastnight regarding one user and about her being a gypsy. It's attitudes like this that starts persecution. The nazis did this they persecuted millions of jews, handicapped, gypsies. I am utterly shocked and disaapointed at how you so called adults act it's nothing sort of playground bullying. Who on earth would want to join here with that attitude??????

I haven't seen any anti-sematism on mn. I used to work in an old people's home and I was horrified by some of the things a 'sweet old lady' said, so I do believe that I notice when people are anti-sematic.
I haven't read all the threads mind you, but haven't read the anti gypsy or anti asian threads either confused

Why the jiggling jeff would you namechange for this? Have you got another question, about bumsex praps?

thegruffalosma Sat 11-Jun-11 18:19:32

I've seen some not-so-nice stuff about gypsies on here too.
Not a massive fan of the term 'handicapped' either though. Are you in America OP?

GollyHolightly Sat 11-Jun-11 18:21:26

Ah, you mentioned the Nazis. You lose.

OP: if you don't want to be here, nothing is forcing you to be.

If you find something offensive or wrong, then deal with it on the thread in which it occurs.

Please do not start (yet another) tedious thread about a thread.

GollyHolightly - I was going to say, surely invoking Godwin's Law in the OP has to be a record? grin

Another bloody crazy night on MN then?

ooohyouareawfulbutilikeyou Sat 11-Jun-11 18:39:51

are you ashamed to stand up and say the OP in your regular name?

we are all anonymous on here unless someone wants to say who & what they are. to be frank i couldnt give a toss.

Why name change?

BitOfFun Sat 11-Jun-11 18:45:55

The two threads you mention that were deleted were deleted for troll-hunting, and did not contain any racism.


usualsuspect Sat 11-Jun-11 18:47:09

Too much drama on here just lately

<goes for a lie down>

People are strange when you're a stranger
Faces look ugly when you're alone
Women seem wicked when you're unwanted
Streets are uneven when you're down

When you're strange
Faces come out of the rain
When you're strange
No one remembers your name
When you're strange
When you're strange

Sorry couuldnt resist grin

There was no racism in the threads I believe you are referring to.
