An Open Discussion

Through Reading Deal 4 Wheel post

http://www.qatarliving.com/node/1463303

which somehow i find it offensive in a certain way , but prefer to bring into being a chance to open a discussion about the following :

- How far old Qler's are ready to accept new people

- Is it True that some Qler's living the role more than it should and without noticing they are being rude with others and push them to be out

- Do You find the groups or activities in QL become Solitary for some people and not open for others

- What steps do you think should be made ( new topics away from copy paste )

gudone, isnt it copy paste stuff ?

(Copied from Winn ? :)

v both said the same point LOL...

By gudone• 11 years 7 months ago.
gudone

well i dont find it any fault in copy paste of news. nobody reads all news websites.. some v may miss... so thts not a pblm according to me....

thn next point -> old QLers r not the owners of QL... so new QLers also have the same opportunity as all have here...

just b urself... no one is ther 2 question (but no one welcomes 'NONSENSE' )..

on reading a news out of 10 atleast 6 will have different views so forums r to discuss,share and clarify their views etc.... v cannot expect every1 to behave as v wish thm to do ..

Well, this aint the place you come if want to change what happens in the news. Its just a forum for discussion and sharing information. Personally, I dont cover every single news channel in the whole world, so I do find it nice that people post news articles here.

If its something I hav already read , I just move on.

people's reaction or views wouldn't bring change in the news, bullet once triggered couldn't be reversed!

but posters have no way left except to exaggerate over any kinda news.

Some options for whoever doesnt like it

1. Bark at the caravan

2. Join it

3. Go your way

4. Re-route the caravan your way/ Make your own caravan

( Excuse me for all this talk abt caravans, its way past my lunch time!)

Whatever it is, I guess QL is as bad or as good depending on what you look for.

About copy pasters, for all you know they might be doing it to start a discussion and know other people's views on that piece of news. Dont see anything wrong with that.

So...this is really about a LOO?

its not that m looking for friendship, nor its a match making site hapygolucy! it is impossible to interact with people in reality as u do here on ql, Ql is a fictitious world, no reality.

I've always been rather curious about your profession. Do you prefer the Western high rise system or the eastern low level which is stressful on the knees ?

You are true to a certain extent...

Some QLers want QL to "function in a certain way".... Some QLers dont... its always going to be this way....

You can try to change it....

you can also get an in-depth view here from Guru Painther :)

@ OP... I dont think you would like to relate or interact with all and sundry...same is applicable to the others...so relax....no need to think too much about QL and who is doing what and what not and why... interact with people in real life, go out and make friends...if you can make some friends through QL well and good....if not nothing is lost...dont make life, stop at QL.

By anonymous• 11 years 7 months ago.

Lol so you are upset that everyone is not posting as per your liking??

Hahaha.. Are you angry in real life too that everyone doesn't live their life the way you want them to??

u dont need to disclose or describe ur profession, what you are, seems from ur previous comments ;b

By timebandit• 11 years 7 months ago.

And Lucy used to post about her profession and she got nailed for it big time so I am not going there anyway.

By timebandit• 11 years 7 months ago.
timebandit

What the hell can I write about my profession? I am a toilet cleaner.

By Deal_4_wHeel• 11 years 7 months ago.
Deal_4_wHeel

what i assume, you guys are not enough creative to post any stuff related to ur professions! lack of capability lets you to post copied stuff!

But I have to admit my current pet peeve is the arse-kissing posters (like the OP in this thread). I know it shows intolerance on my part but I find people like that really irritating :P

pranzer, please check your PM..

ok, getting back to the topic now, to answer your question on one of the comments above, I quote, "how far are you open or friendly to those new Qler's and to share your activity with?" -- It depends..

By hms• 11 years 7 months ago.
hms

i came to QL all are friendly, no rude behaviour or anything, it was fantastic journey and still continuing, the new comers are also should be resonable initially again it is my suggestion, take it or leave it.

By pranzer• 11 years 7 months ago.
pranzer

Nice comment there TB.. usually for the new member who post in here (question, help & etc) most of the time it will be highjack .. which is very offensive.. but if you get along with the highjacker, others are tempted to do the same.. so Friendship looses it's way.That's what I notice here...

but some of the guys are very helpful and informative..

I've always enjoyed QL and would continue doing same..

Ok D4W and how do you feel about people posting a link to a youtube item with no reason or explanation? No topic for discussion, and no point.

Because whenever I try and point out to newbies posting this stuff I get accused of being a female office desk QL employee or something like that.

By eliashamzo• 11 years 7 months ago.

TB , well said

Deal _ 4 _ wheel , whats your suggestions about the topics that should be open instead of the copy paste

By Deal_4_wHeel• 11 years 7 months ago.
Deal_4_wHeel

i m fed up with the copy cats on ql forum! which they pick a repeated news and post over here with the following link! without taking into notice that it doesn't make any sense since everyone is literate enough to peep into the newspapers or yahoo news!

By timebandit• 11 years 7 months ago.
timebandit

QL is like any public place, some people will fit in quickly and some more slowly. Sometimes advice on how to post more effectively gets taken personally instead of constructively.

By Deal_4_wHeel• 11 years 7 months ago.

Do not try to be over-confident u dimwit qlers!

By eliashamzo• 11 years 7 months ago.

Guys , I am not talking about myself or the ability to post .

but go back to the core of the subject . how far are you open or friendly to those new Qler's and to share your activity with .
