Your "lifestyle" may be everyones business....if you are going both ways and spreading the death sentence.
Hmmmm, that, it seems, would apply to you too. Even if you claim you got it from a toilet seat, or a mosquito bite while out on Cape Cod. Jim

heh, heh......in my humble opinion:

1. There is absolutely nothing wrong with Jakarta! Designo_E320 gave him a clean bill of Health!

2. He has the individual right and freedom to have and express his views irrespective.

3. If his views do not agree with yours (poster), it does not mean that he is anti-american! The expectation for him to have similar views to you just because you share a common nationality does not accord with the ethos of Democracy!

4. First World or Third World is irrelevant! Jakarta most probably enjoys a much higher standard of living than any of the posters in this thread and that is the case with most expats living abroad!

5. Stop being a cry-baby and get on with the show!

heh, heh.........

[rant]Just my opinion, but this place would go a long way toward being more interesting and enjoyable if people would stop obsessing and posting about other posters, unless of course there is amicable intent. Seriously, what is that about? Is it really that hard to ignore posters/posts that are uninteresting or annoying? It's a trend that has consumed OT lately, and IMHO, has contributed mightily to a dramatic downward spiral...[/rant]

^ Does that mean we're in The Kumbaya Zone? Quick, everyone get along with each other, dammit! The beatings will continue until morale improves!

The mindless spam has caused a dramatic downward spiral. This place is more interesting when people interact with one another, not just paste up whatever schlock they find on-line ad nauseam. It becomes impossible to find threads of interest when you have to wade through a minefield laid with the cowflop drivel that the J's are so fond of 'contributing'.

Until there's an ignore feature that hides threads originated by a poster - not just his posts - there's really no way to get around this.

This isn't a campaign of personal attacks against Robert (I didn't dig up this thread, by the way)...it's a Campaign for Real Posts.

That is a little severe, but precisely the point that needs to be made.

It is not exactly rocket science to figure that out.

Sometimes it is real interesting and we might have missed it, but OTOH unabated blitzes of unattributed stuff gets tedious, to wade through, the humor or news gets tedious, and is like spam after awhile, in my opinion.
(Which ironically might defeat the purpose of the posting, like all the inserts and ads in the newspaper.)


It is nothing personal at all personal, just my opinion.

Hahahahahaha now thats funny.
This place was fun before the BWOT minaret was build, now it's a bit of a cuntfeast, a bit like Finsbury Park. Funny …sorry that’s not on their agenda.
