Moderators: why so much xenophobia, racism and more generally hatred in PF's messages?

Dear Moderators,

Why do you accept so many messages full of xenophobic, racist, antisemitic, homophobic comments? There are more and more of them and this is not acceptable. I do know that such (stupid) attitudes result from lack of education, lack of culture, lack of being exposed to others but nevertheless there are NO excuses. People are people and there are good and bad people in all groups, nobody is superior or inferior and therefore no one should be insulted, stigmatized because "different". Well, in order to know that, one needs to get out of one's 4 walls, and meet people...

I know that you are based in the United States. Aren't they laws in the US against that? I am not so sure about in Poland but in Western Europe, such attitudes are strongly condemned (heavy fines and even jail - I agree with such measures).

These PF are supposed to be international so no segregation, no stigmatization, no insult of xenophobic, racist, antisemitic, homophobic nature ought to be allowed.

Thank you for making PF friendly!

PS: I hope you shall not delete my message. Thanks:)
PPS: should I be insulted as per the above, I will not let it go...

Agree, I also think that newly appeared troll not_poland should be banned.

I agree about not-poland.
Also hate filled posts should be removed quicker than the great crime of going 'off topic'.

Going off-topic risks damaging PolishForums' google results, that's why doing it will get you banned faster than posting xenophobia, racism and generally hatred.

@Wulkan: I was not thinking about him/her since not reading (I don't read everything and everybody). I just cannot stand stupid comments based on nationality (if we don't happen to be from America, Poland or Germany, we are systematically insulted), religion, race, sexual orientation. I was fortunate (now I am aware of it) to be born and raised in multi cultural society, I have mingled with probably over 50 differents nationalites, all colors, all religions, you name it, I had it ;), I have travelled a lot, I have lived in 7 (including Poland) countries. As a result, I am open and I don't judge people upon their nationality, race, religion, sex, sexual orientation or whatever. I judge people upon the way they behave.

The problem is lack of education and lack of exposure to others. Although Poles are said not to be open, the least tolerant don't come to Poland.

PS; it is NOT NORMAL to be insulted because of what we are. I don't mind being insulted because of what I say but I refuse to be insulted because of my nationality, my being a women, my this and my that. If necessary, I'll seek legal advice because I shall not tolerate to be insulted.

@Rozu; when did I insult YOU because of your nationality? As a matter of fact, I don't even know what you are. For me, it's NOT important where people come from. I don't label people. Except for 2 or 3, I don't know where people are from. If I said that Britons (in general) don't know about TOM-DOM, it's a fact and it's normal that they don't know because they are not concerned;). For the past few days, whatever I write, I am insulted because of my nationality (which I have never indicated by the way)..

why would i cry a river to you? i only asked what means `sniffy` comments about British. Its very hard to read all comments of one poster to found out what he wanted to say so i asked other poster who follow the discussion. What`s wrong about it?

My first thought was that is `sniffy` something pejorative because i also don`t have respect for Brits. That word `sniffy` preety nice goes with British mentality. But, as a decent man, i wanted to be sure.

Crow is Serbian and everybody knows it. Perso, it does not matter to me whether he is or isn't Serbian. Although I don't agree with him, I think he's nice, always polite ...

@Bullfrog: yes, xenophobia, racism, antisemitism, homophobia are most generally found among least educated, lowest socio-economic circles. Fortunately, I don't come from those ;).

to tell you frankly people, i thought that is `sniffy` kind of slang or replacement for vagina. Like that one wanted to say `vagina people`

Sorry for my English.

look I cannot be arsed to be digging through threads but yeh you have made several snippy/sniffy (lol Crow vagina is fine, we all have one..:)) about the British, about how we dont speak other languages, or are ignorant about other countries.

you know I dont even mind really it is just the rank hypocrisy of you saying stuff like

As a matter of fact, I don't even know what you are. For me, it's NOT important where people come from.

You know very well I am British and that is why you make nasty little comments.
Possibly it is so much part of your persona that you do not even realise you are doing it.
Why should I know all about French stuff? do you know about British stuff? I seriously doubt it.

@Crow; I don't remember your exact words (I don't keep files on people ;)) but your style was not very delicate.. Remember here it isn't a greasy spoon for truckdrivers
