I recently received a long letter from the administrators explaining why they had banned a member from the forums. I agree with the reasons for banning him, as the forums should not be used for political reasons. On the other hand, the administrators did display a biased and one sided opinion which is what people living in the world at large have come to expect over the years from people living west of the pond. I am an Englishman with 70 years of experience in what goes on in the world. One important thing that I have learnt is that one man's terrorist is another man's freedom fighter. The converse also applies. A political group considered by one country to be a terrorist organisation is often a legally and democratically recognised organisation on its own patch. Take the IRA for instance. The UK considered it a terrorist organisation, yet the USA supported it financially and politically for many years, until it became in the interests of the USA to change its policy in exchange for assistance from the UK on other matters. If an American was to ask the average Englishman "which is the biggest terrorist country in the world", he may well find that the answer would be a lot nearer to home than he had thought. Of course it would depend on which average Englishman he was to ask. It was not neccessary to write a whole page explaining why one guy was expelled from the forum. All that was needed was to do it and keep quiet about it. Forums should not be political items from either side of the keyboard.
