QL Community

By brandylady

Hi Guys,

Just wondering, when I joined QL I thought I was joining an online community, however, recently I have noticed that some threads turn from intelligent debate to name calling, childish posts.
If I am not mistaken, the word community suggests people working and coming together to help and aid each other, to offer support when needed.
So, to the minority of people who don't understand the word "community" this is just a small reminder.
Lets keep it pleasant, we can all have different opinions, it's what makes us individuals, there is no need to turn them into hateful, offensive posts.

I'm new around here and been going around in forums and ready.. I agree with you Brandlady about the attitude of some people.. honestly its like they got nothing better to do than be bullies..

Gypsy.. i was lucky to come upon one of ur debates with the all famous "red_pope" about gays and lesbians and i loved it.. I love the way u debate a topic to the end and stick with what you believe :)

sorry to upset the fragile equilibriam of QL, should have known some would use this thread as a vent again to get rid of their pent up frustrations,

Tallg had me laughing out loud though.

Now, flirting, well, you can flutter your eyelashes, smile sweetly and know that you don't need any lessons in flirting Mr K ;)

Brandy, I've seen it a few times. I can really relate to the Philly sports fan in the movie. I remember when I first got married my wife used to laugh at me every time I watched my teams play. If things weren't going well, I was just like the fan in the movie. It's a Philly thing.

definitely there will be difference in opinion and any provocateur will be dealt accordingly. Specially if the provocateur is hiding something in his/her profiles that doesn't seem to fit the level of argument being raised.

It's just like saying, on a common subject, a 40-year-old person will have a very distinct difference in opinion with a person half this age and sometimes it's that sense that provokes others.

It will be natural for gentlemen to treat a lady a little bit differently (in some ways or in some extent of leverage handling) but will not give the same treatment to a "bashing" same "bull" (expressions only, no offense intended).

And whats with that thread again, Mayasunil, now you have to learn to forgive, forget and move on girl...and seriously, those comments of Not being alone, shouldnt be expressed in such a way on QL...

And who said anything about Flirts, what are they...? and how do they talk and play their game...can anyone tell...?

it seems that certain people use this site only to vent their anger and frustrations. They don't care who they insult, am sure most of them don't even know why they are angry.

You're right brandy. I'm better than that. And I feel ashamed that I just partook in exactly the thing this thread was rallying against. I'm going to PM qatari and ask him to ban me until I've learnt my lesson!

And I really wish I hadn't started it, cos now I'm scared I'm gonna end up in Hamad with all my limbs broken!

women and men both flirt, it doesn't make them bad people, it certainly doesn't warrant abuse.

My thread was about community and some peoples inability to understand the meaning of the word.

Tallg, provocation is what keeps certain individuals going, hold your head up and rise above it :)

i ddnt bring it here to discuss the thread. see yourself wht the post is about.

By tallg• 14 years 5 months ago.
tallg

You weren't called a flirt, it was suggested that someone flirted with you. There's a difference.

And anyways, like you said in that thread; "flirting is fun".

By Mayasunil• 14 years 5 months ago.
Mayasunil

Calling a woman.. a flirt .. is a negative comment or an insult or abuse????

By tallg• 14 years 5 months ago.
tallg

Why post it if you didn't want to "provocate anyone"?

And why bring it up in this thread if you "dont wana talk about that subject or thread here"?

And I still want to know if you were threatening me.

By brandylady• 14 years 5 months ago.
brandylady

your thread started with history and ended up a tirade against the british,

and believe me, I wouldn't suffer abuse, either verbally or physically so leave me out of your rantings.

By brandylady• 14 years 5 months ago.

resorting to insults is another, knew certain people would jump on this thread to re-start something best left alone

By Mayasunil• 14 years 5 months ago.

cool brandy ... so its fine to abuse a lady as per you!!!!

forget about the thread and subject. It was on a historical subject, not to provocate anyone.

cheers

By Mayasunil• 14 years 5 months ago.
Mayasunil

Gypsy.. dont worry.. people appreciated than the few ignornt deniels there. i dont wana talk about that subject or thread here.

This shows no respect to women out here.. none can tell a woman that she is been flirted and stuff on an open forum.

By tallg• 14 years 5 months ago.
tallg

It's got nothing to do with my feelings. My point is that if you start a thread about something that happened years and years ago, that everyone already knows about, that has been discussed to death before AND has nothing to do with Qatar or Qatar Living, then you're leaving yourself open to being insulted and abused.

You can't go round starting provocative threads and then cry when people react. Grow up.

While writing on open forums, you should be prepared to take negative comments as well. Not necessary everyone agrees to what you say.

comment as requested.

My thread was nothing to do with any person or persons in particular, those who do resort to personal insults know who they are.

The only people stupid enough to call Brit's thieves are people with absolutely no world knowledge of history or politics. By starting that thread you basically proclaimed yourself ignorant and opened yourself up to a tirade of insults and accusations.

Guess some brit winked at her or flirted with her badly. and now she is taking all her anger on all the brits.
