I just wanted to make it crystal clear that I was under the impression that we have members of this forum who are white, UK born ex-pats and who live in countries other than the UK, which Amnesty has written reports on (FYI they do the full A-Z, including some pretty grim reports on EU member states). I would be horrified and apologise unreservedly if our bearded friend can show me examples of his responding to criticism of UK dial up internet acces - or indeed anything UK based - by those posters by telling them to "Fuck off back to country X, and to read the Amnesty report on country X".
Sadly due to my slow net access I can't download compare the Amnesty Turkey report with those of other countries. I'd be especially interested in comparing it with the report on the US.

I'll go out on a limb here and wager that the latter makes grimmer reading than the former. Yet the negative association of 'bad human rights' doesn't seem to be the first image that springs to most people's minds when thinking/writing about the US. In the case of some posters it does seem to be the first thing that springs to mind when thinking/writing about Turkey.
I'll admit it's a very long time since I was obliged as part of a management training programme to attend a racism awareness seminar but I do distinctly recall that one of the definitions of racism was the association of negative attributes and characteristics with given races/nations irrespective of any evidence that the given races/nations were any more deserving of these negative associations than any other races/nations. Pre-judging - quite literally the root of the word 'prejudice'.

Spock, you're completely ignoring the "civilised" aspect of what you said there, which as you well know was the bit which prompted the comment. That looks disingenuous, at best.

I suppose that would depend on whether you wanted anyone to know what you're talking about or not.

I've no idea what you're talking about. I'm equally unsure how emoticons qualify typing randomly with your eyes shut and mittens on.

Anyway, I don't why I'm bothering. This is a fucking stupid thread. The only thing I'm getting out of it is that the last shred of doubt I had about identifying Spock as a deeply stupid and intolerably cuntish individual a good three years ago has now nicely dissipated. This is in every detail the same as Rogin's "nuke new york" rubbish from the other week. The nasty minded outpourings of people who just about hold it in the rest of the time, but eventually flip over the side and show their true colours once in their cups and pissed off about... what? Internet access? State of it.

Fellas, chill out and join your local nationalist parties, you'll feel a whole lot better. You're obviously chafing with this whole "pretending not to be a scum bag" thing. Knock yourselves out and give your inner wankers a break.

Quite. Slow internet access means he'd have to wait a minute to read it rather than ten seconds. So let's have it right and say "sadly due to the fact that I don't want to let the facts get in the way of being an arsehole..." etc.

What Spock's done here is go off half-cocked and made the grave tactical error of thinking sticking hard to his guns rather than backing down - even when he knows he's in the wrong - is going to help him.

I know OTF is not a place where people close ranks often, and that's in the main a good thing. But there must be some things that are beyond the pale, and for my money, accusing Carcass of being racist, and furthermore suggesting he has a track record as such, is easily one of them. Fucking despicable behaviour.

For what it is worth, I think SSS is right on the money here. As he often is, as it goes (and no, I haven't ever met him, Ganja/MX).
